Must Watch !!!


The movies listed below are a must watch for me. From what I read, they are all like masterpieces in their particular genres.

I watched Inglorious Basterds last night and I really enjoyed it. Plus I have a thing for war/nazi movies and books. I loved reading the ones by Leon Uris – like, Mila 18, Battlecry, Exodus, Trinity…….

So i decided, why not make a list of some good cinema, club it intoΒ  genres, and try n watch as many as I can πŸ™‚

Genre: World War II / Nazi

  1. Where Eagles Dare (1968) : though I saw this when I was pretty young, I’ve forgotten almost all of it. so this one’s gonna be a memory refresher!

  3. A Bittersweet Life (2005) – south korean

      Hi Deb,

      These Koran movies sound very interesting and I’m sure they’ll make for good cinema. I will try n get my hands on them too πŸ™‚

      Schindler’s List and Life is Beautiful are like the cult films on the Nazi regime and I’ve seen them too. So I thought I’d look for cinema other than these πŸ™‚
      Black book i haven’t heard of so will check it out too.

      These days I’m back to my books. I think I’ve read about 15 since feb this year….hehehehe….no prizes for guessing why! πŸ˜›
