Great Films

You probably love a good movie. I do too. Even more, I love great filmmaking. I think there's a difference. A good movie tells a compelling story, keeps you hooked throughout, excites you at various stages and makes you think, even after the lights come on. A great film does these things as well but it affects you in a deeper, more emotional way and it endures the test of time (ie, repeat viewings).

Everyone has their own list but for me great films would include Gladiator, The Empire Strikes Back, Superman The Movie, Halloween, Titanic, The Wrath of Khan, The Dark Knight, among several others. I'll touch on one of these in particular, and why it has impacted me to such a high degree, in an upcoming post...
