Before I get started, let me make it clear that I’m no movie buff. But I have watched my fair share of movies.
I’m not going to give away the movies, in case you want to watch it. I’m really into action, suspense, and mystery movies. Also, you’ll notice a trend in these movies….because Christopher Nolan is just too good.
1. The Dark Knight (2008)
This movie became a classic the moment it was released. I don’t think anyone can deny that this movie is amazing. I’ve watched it countless times and yet I still find things that I didn’t notice before. You can watch this movie over and over again and not get bored of it. You’ve got to love Heath Ledger’s Joker in this. He’s pretty much what makes this movie good, other than Christopher Nolan’s directing. Ledger’s role is iconic.
2. Dunkirk (2017)
In 2016, I found out Chris Nolan was making a new movie (finally) and I was very excited. He hadn’t made a new movie in a few years then and I felt deprived. I discovered that the movie would on the the Miracle of Dunkirk. I’ve always been really interested war movies and war in general.
The film has minimal dialogue, but it works. The actors tell the story so well through their expressions alone. It’s a chilling recount of how Dunkirk really happened. It’s very different than how I learned it to be. This movie shows how it really was.
3. Captain Phillips (2013)
This movie was absolutely crazy. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. It’s a true story, based on the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of a U.S. cargo ship. Barkhad Abdi’s acting as a Somali pirate, was amazing. The story in general is very interesting, and the film is created in such a suspenseful way. If you’re looking for a film that constantly has you biting your nails, this is for you!
4. Inception (2010)
I still don’t understand this movie. And that’s why I’ll never get sick of it. I watch it over and over and get a different understanding of it each time. It boggles your mind and makes you think. It’s about stealing secrets through dreams and that’s about all I get from it.
It’s quite long, about two and a half hours in length. But trust me, it’s worth every minute of your time. If you are looking for a movie that really makes you think, watch Inception!

I’ve only seen inception and the dark knight and loved them both so I’m gonna have to check the other two out 😊 thanks for the recommendations
Not my type of movies tbh. I only really like horror and comedy movies. I watched ‘Inception’ and I fell asleep cause it was so boring lol. But ‘Captin Phillips’ seems very interesting, I may watch it soon. My brother has watched all these movies though and loves them all as well.
I have actually never seen any of those movies! To be honest I really only watch movies at Christmas time.
Aah I’ve been wanting to watch Dunkirk for aaages – have heard such great things about it

I love Inception, especially when I was studying Philosophy lol
Captain Phillips and The Dark Knight are both great films. I didn’t really got on with Inception – I kinda got lost what was happening at times. Dunkirk is supposed to be amazing and I need to watch it when it comes out on DVD!!
