Blade Runner (1982)
Note: It is my favorite Science Fiction movie. The look and the mood are great. The story is fascinating and the cast is awesome. A great classic.
Dead Ringers (1988)
Note: This movie is really creepy and it has one of the best perfomances ever. Jeremy Irons portrays 2 different twins so well that if even though they are identical, you can easily identify them. The story is fascinating as well.
Note: It is my favorite Indiana Jones movie. There is a great chemistry between Harrison Ford and Sean Connery, there are loads of cool action scenes and the story is very captivating. A great classic.
Grave of the Fireflies (1988)
Note: It is not one of the best animated films, it is actually of the best films ever made, period! It is really heartbreaking and one of the few times I almost bursted into tears. A powerful story beautifully animated.
Paris, Texas (1984)
Note: This movie is little forgotten nowadays but it's a shame. It has one of the best soundtrack ever. The story, the directing and acting are just amazing and it's just a really mesmerizing picture.
Raging Bull (1980)
Note: It is such a classic. One of the best movies produced by De Niro and Scorsese. Amazing story and easily the best sport movie ever made.
Do the Right Thing (1989)
Note: I always loved Spike Lee's movies and this one is definitely his masterpiece. It is a simple story but there are so many layers, it is just fascinating.
Once Upon a Time in America (1984)
Note: One of the best gangster movies ever made. It's a shame that Leone couldn't make anymore movies after this one. A great picture.
Note: It is my favorite war movie. It is at the same time entertaining but also challenging with 3 dimensional characters. A dark description of warfare.
Note: Al Pacino is huge and very mercurial in this movie. The story of a loser from Cuba who tries to make it big in America but ends up still a loser. A spellbinding story
