Hi there,

I hope everyone enjoys autumn so far. I do.
In this post I'd like to tell you about my favourite movies. I have a lot, but I chose 5 for this article. I hope they will catch your attention and you will watch them if you haven't seen them before.

Forrest Gump (1994)

"My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.""

Forrest Gump

This film is my all time favourite. I LOVE it. It's set in the USA at the time of the Vietnam war. The world is shown throught the eyes of this special man (Forrest Gump), who has an IQ of 75. He experiences a lot, school, sport, college, war, friendship, family, love, illness, loss... The roles are played by such good actors like Tom Hanks and Gary Sinise. The main song is beautiful, and perfect for the story.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

"I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don't want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can't be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free."

Back to School (1986)

"Please, try to understand. I don't have the background for this. I mean, the high school I went to, they asked a kid to prove the law of gravity, he threw the teacher out the window!"

Back to School

It's one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. A billionaire man visits his son at college and decides to help him by attending to the college himself. You can get an insight to college life, partys, love, teachers, father-son relationship, competition and studying.

Director: Alan Metter
Cast: Rodney Dangerfield, Sally Kellerman, Burt Young, Robert Downey Jr.
Gendre: Comedy, Romance, Sport

Kelly's Heroes (1970)

"We see our role as essentially defensive in nature. While our armies are advancing so fast and everyone's knocking themselves out to be heroes, we are holding ourselves in reserve in case the Krauts mount a counteroffensive which threatens Paris... or maybe even New York. Then we can move in and stop them. But for 1.6 million dollars, we could become heroes for three days."
