There are some movies that leave a strong impression on you and remind you of certain periods or themes in your life. Movies often have the ability to make you remember special memories that you may not have thought of for a long time. They can give you a sense of comfort and well-being as well. Here are some of the most nostalgic movies of all time:
The Green Mile
The Green Mile is a famous book written by Stephen King, who is considered a master of the horror genre in literature. Like many Stephen King books, it was turned into a movie that made even the toughest people cry like a baby. The story isn’t the typical horror movie.
It’s about a miracle worker named John Coffey who finds himself wrongly accused and in jail, awaiting execution by the electric chair. The miracle worker is played by the gentle giant Michael Clarke Duncan while Tom Hanks plays a prison guard named Paul Edgecomb, who is touched by the love and innocence coming from John Coffey.
This movie is considered one of the finest movies in Bill Murray’s career. It is directed by Harold Ramis, and the story is about a pessimistic and cynical weatherman who is rude to everyone. He comes to the town of Punxsutawney for work. However, the next day, he finds himself repeating the same day.
Unfortunately for him, he gets stuck in a time loop and keeps repeating the same day over and over again. Initially, he uses this time loop to satisfy his selfish desires. But soon enough, he becomes suicidal and then finally undergoes the transformation into a kind man. The character journey in this movie is made incredibly well.
Scent of a Woman
Al Pacino proved in this movie that he is an absolute powerhouse of acting. He plays the role of a frustrated blind retired U.S. Army Lt. Colonel who is accompanied by a student named Charlie Simms, played by Chris O’Donnell, for a short trip to New York.
The movie shows how the young boy’s innocence and optimism bring about a change in Lt.Col Slade’s life and how there is more to life than we think. It’s a well-told story that gives us the courage to face our struggles in life head-on.
This is a beautiful story about brothers. Tom Cruise plays an arrogant young man named Charlie Babbitt who learns about the existence of his autistic older brother Raymond Babbitt played by Dustin Hoffman, who delivers the most powerful acting performance of his career.
Motivated by greed, he tries to take advantage of his brother by taking him on a trip. However, he soon finds himself undergoing a radical character transformation from being a selfish man to a man that comes to understand selfless love and its beauty.
