My Favorite Online Movies

By Reed Themy

Nowadays, most people skip going to the theaters, and we now patiently wait to watch them at home, on our big screen TV's. You can now choose to acquire movie downloads through movie download sites. Below is a list of the kinds of films which people are downloading from movie download sites.

Pulp fiction is a must see movie. This is director Quentin Tarantino?s best work. With stars like Bruce Willis, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, and Samuel L. Jackson, you can?t go wrong. I won?t even try to explain the plot.

The Godfather is the ultimate mafia movie. It tells the story of aging Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando), head of one of the big New York mafia families. When Don Vito is shot by a rival mafia gang member there is a blood bath resulting in the death of Sonny (James Caan), the Don?s first son. This leaves the future of the Corleone family in the reluctant hands of Michael (Al Pacino). At first reluctant to join in the ?family? business, the killings turn Michael into a ruthless and determined mafia family leader.

The Dark Knight is the latest of the Batman movies. This is a darker and seedier version than the other Batman movies with spectacular special effects that has made it the top box office in 2008. In this movie we see Batman battle one of his classic rivals, the Joker.

Twelve Angry Men is an old (1957) classic. The story follows the jury deliberations of a murder trial. Juror number 8, Mr. Davis (Henry Fonda) is the lone dissenter, as the other 11 votes see the defendant as guilty. Eventually Mr. Davis gets the other jurors to drop their predispositions, and prejudices, and view the evidence more closely on its own merits. 12 Angry Men was one of the first noteworthy courtroom dramas.

Casablanca is one of the all time classics. It is a story of love and courage set in Casablanca during WWII. The stars in this wonderful film are Ingrid Bergman as Ilsa, and Humphrey Bogart as Rick.

"In a distant galaxy far, far away". Star Wars is the classic sci-fi adventure for an entire generation. The setting is science fiction but the story line is a classic one, good versus evil. Darth Vader, the dark one, is pitted against the young Jedi warrior Luke Skywalker control of the universe is at stake.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is the final chapter of the trilogy. This epic rendition of Tolkien?s great books is a spectacular visual. An absolute must see film.

In One Flew Over The Cuckoo?s Nest, Jack Nicholson (as R. P. McMurphy) gives one of the best performances of his illustrious career. Trying to avoid going to jail, he gets himself put in a mental institution, thinking life will be easy. Instead life becomes unbearable, as nurse Ratched runs a tight ship. His impact on the other patients is profound, ending with a completely sane Indian man making an escape to freedom.

In Shawshank Redemption, Andy (Tim Robbins) has been sent to Shawshank prison, wrongly convicted of killing his wife. Inside Shawshank he forms a powerful friendship with fellow prisoner Red (Morgan Freeman). He refuses to give up, and his decent spirit helps improve the lives of his fellow prisoners. His escape, and Red?s release see the two reunite outside of prison, in Mexico, when Andy?s grand plan is finally fulfilled.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of the vast amount of films you might find to download online. Using movie downloads might be the most economical way to create an awesome film collection. Downloading movies is the latest way everyone can use the web to get what we need. - 16651
