Trying to recompense his rug from the wealthy Lebowski, he gets entwined in an intricate kidnapping case.

 

2001: A Space Odyssey – This is one of the most influential of all sci-fi films, and one of the most controversial. Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 is a delicate, poetic meditation on the ingenuity and folly — of mankind. Its a masterpiece for the ages, it’s lacking of a time, or period, and unfolds a compelling and brilliant tale while also challenging audiences every single time they watched it.

Forrest Gump – : The sweetness and charm of forest are usually enough to approximate true depth and grace. Forrest Gump may be an overly emotional film with a somewhat tricky message.

However, he cannot stop thinking about his childhood sweetheart Jenny Curran, whose life is messed up.

It’s through this latter activity that Thomas makes the acquaintance of Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), who has some interesting news for Mr. Anderson, none of what’s going on around him is real. The year is actually closer to 2199, and it seems Thomas, like most people, is a victim of The Matrix, a massive artificial intelligence system that has tapped into people’s minds and created the illusion of a real world, while using their brains and bodies for energy, tossing them away like spent batteries when they’re through. Morpheus, however, is convinced Neo is “The One” who can crack open The Matrix and bring his people to both physical and psychological freedom.

Pretty woman – A rich entrepreneur hires a prostitute to accompany him at a few social events. Trouble ensues when he falls head over heels in love with her and they try to bridge the gap between their worlds.

The Bicycle Thief – This film manages to appeal to the better angels of our nature in a way that only deepens as we grow older along with the film. The plot of the movie is very simple in post-war Italy, a working-class man’s bicycle is stolen. He and his son set out to find it.

Titanic – This epic cult classic love story of 17 year old Rose, from an aristocratic family and is set to be married. When she boards the Titanic, she meets Jack Dawson, an artist and falls in love with him. Cameron devised a caring love story between Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio that serves as the main focus of Titanic’s storyline, and it works beautifully.

The story if about Travis, an ex-marine and Vietnam veteran who works as a taxi driver in New York City, is driven to save a prostitute from her pimp in an effort to clean the city of its sleaze. The movie was one of the big break big in Robert De Niro’s career getting him nominated for Oscar in a leading role, though he already won in Godfather-2 but as a supporting actor.
