There are movies that just everyone likes and that we can all agree you just can’t hate. Reddit users have now compiled a top 10, which can be seen below.
Brendan Fraser is making a big comeback thanks to his starring role in Darren Aronofsky’s new movie called The Whale. However, Fraser was a big name in Hollywood in the late 1990s, early 2000s. For example, think of the beloved The Mummy, which is also in this list. The movies are in no particular order, but here they are:
The Mummy (1999)
So Fraser is experiencing a renaissance, but many movie buffs are The Mummy not yet forgotten. The film is a mix of adventure, horror and romance. Despite the fact that the film is already two decades old, it still feels ‘fresh’.
Here’s how one Reddit member says:Watched it a couple months ago and my wife and I thought ‘They just don’t make movies like this anymore’. There is an innocence and a joy to the movie that helps to explain why it remains so popular among audiences, who watch it to recapture the unique feeling of late 1990s cinema“.
The Emperor’s New Groove (2000)
Not everyone knows this animation topper, but it scores pretty well on Reddit. The film has a fun and original story and the voices of Eartha Kitt, David Spade, John Goodman and Patrick Warburton also do wonders.
On Reddit, someone writes: “One of my all time favourites. I adore this movieAlthough the film was originally not a huge success, the animated film still grew into a beloved film for many Disney fans.
The Iron Giant (1998)
Another animated film (and not the last one on this list either). The Iron Giant is considered by many today to be one of the best cartoons, which focuses on a little boy who tries to protect an alien robot from the government.
It’s the kind of movie that makes you feel again what it’s like to be a kid, and all the emotions that go with it, whether it’s joy or sadness, this movie has it all.
Robin Williams was of course seen in many top films, but Jumanjic is certainly one of his better known and better films. The supernatural board game story is also a perfect mix of emotions and while the newer installments of the franchise have managed to take on some of the magic of the original, they can’t quite match the first installment with a masterful Williams.
It’s hard to say which Pixar movie is the best, but Up is definitely on the podium. The film shows sadness and joy and can make you cry and laugh. It’s a movie you can’t possibly not like. The opening, in particular, remains one of the best openings of all time.
Tremors is the perfect mix between horror and comedy. In this film, starring Kevin Bacon, we follow the inhabitants of a small western town battling sinister underground monsters. The film does not take itself to series and if the viewer does not, you can really only enjoy it.
Home Alone (1990)
Not just the movie everyone watches at Christmas, Home Alone also remains one of the best family films out there, in which a boy has to protect his house against burglars. Here’s how one Reddit user says: “That movie is Die Hard for kids. I love it and I can’t count how many times I’ve watched it“.
Jurassic Park (1993)
Few great science fiction movies are as popular as Jurassic Park. This Steven Spielberg gem set the standard for what the genre could achieve and despite the fact that there have been many sequels, nothing came close to the magic of the original. Everyone has fond memories of this masterpiece.
Stand By Me (1986)
Not every Stephen King film adaptation is a success, but Stand By Me it sure is. The story mainly revolves around the powerful and special bonds of friendship rather than the film really being about horror. River Phoenix, Joaquin’s brother, stars in the film, but unfortunately he died a few years later of a drug overdose.
A Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
There have of course been a lot of Christmas Carol movies, but few of them are watched with as much affection as A Muppet Christmas Carol. Michael Caine is therefore seen by some as the one and only Scrooge, and the presence of the Muppets gives the whole film a light and cheerful feeling. However, the film also does not shy away from the sadness that occurs in the original.
