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 into genres, and try n watch as many as I can 🙂
