3. 127 Hours
“There is no force more powerful than the will to live.”
127 Hours is, by far one of the best film I’ve ever seen. This movie taught me that it isn’t some rocks or some mountains or any diamonds, the hardest thing to break is the undying human spirit. Based on the true story of climber Aron Ralston, who just refused to give up even after getting struck in a rather unfavorable circumstance, 127 Hours is a must watch for anyone who is about to give up.

A Jewish Polish Musician in ghettos of Warsaw at the peak of World War 2, what could be worst? Adrien Brody became the youngest Oscar Winner for Best Actor Category for his portrayal of Wladyslaw Szpilman in this heartbreaking survival set during the holocaust. This movie will tell you how hard life can get and how everything can go wrong and yet you can survive through it.
5. Good Will Hunting
“Some people can never believe in themselves, until someone believes in them.”
I watched this movie a long time ago, and it’s still with me, same will happen to you. Good Will Hunting is a masterpiece, made possible by the ever-inspiring funny man Robin Williams and Matt Damon in his debut role.
