“Singin’ in the Rain” (1952)
One of the greatest films ever made, this musical of the transition of Hollywood from silent to sound has everything a film lover could ever want. This film is essentially perfect in every amazing sense of the word.
“The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977)
My favorite Bond film right in the middle of Sir Roger Moore’s stint at the wonderfully suave British secret agent, this 1970s flick features an aging Bond teaming up with a Russian spy. It has everything you could want in a Bond film – camp, fun, gadgets, a fun bad guy, and a really great liar with action sequences that still hold up. Who can forget Jaws? This film is wonderful, nobody does it better than Sir Roger Moore.
“The Prince of Egypt” (1998)
A beautiful animated film created by DreamWorks made during the transition of the CGI revolution that Pixar fueled with Toy Story and DreamWorks themselves cemented with Shrek a few years later. This is considered one of the last great traditionally animated films ever made and it arguable one of the best films ever period. With lavish set pieces, wonderful voice casting, incredible music by the immortal Hans Zimmer, this film is the perfect animated film that captures the Exodus story in a relatable, beautiful way. If only DreamWorks did more films like this one again, perhaps the world would be a better place.
