Films today are not restricted to any limits and come in all forms. We have short films less than a minute long on one end and films stretching for more than 4 hours on the other end as well. Similarly, the scale of each film varies between extremes. There are films made especially for the smaller screens and there are some that are large-scale cinematic events. These films have amazing visuals and music scores, but the overall viewing experience is best achieved in a cinema hall. With all that said now, here is the list of top movies that you must watch in a movie theater.
20. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)
Harry Potter recently celebrated 20 years of the release of the first book. This movie brought an end to the amazing journey. For the people who grew up with Harry Potter, this movie was one of the toughest goodbyes. ‘The Battle of Hogwarts’ is one of the best chapters in the books and this movie does complete justice to it. Apart from the final battle, the excellent sequence involving a Dragon at Gringotts, the presence of most of the loved characters throughout the series and the emotions displayed by the actors make it a treat to watch on the big screen.
19. The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
Wes Anderson always makes his movies look very beautiful and ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ is one among them. Every scene is perfect; the coloring and the lighting are spectacular. The brilliant locations and an ensemble cast consisting of Ralph Fiennes, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson and Jude Law make this movie a must watch on the big screen.
18. 300 (2006)
Our first war movie on this list, ‘300’ is a visually stunning film. The plot revolves around King Leonidas who leads 300 Spartans into battle against the Persian “God-King” Xerxes and his invading army of more than 300,000. The intricate war sequences shot in Zack Snyder’s unique style along with Gerard Butler in the lead make this movie a delight to watch on the big screen. The special effects are brilliant and the story-telling is also quite crisp.
17. Lagaan (2001)
