The Top 5 Must-See Movies of all Time

By no means an easy task, and by every account a subjective one, we’ve narrowed down the top movies of all time. Each is a must-see if you haven’t ever watched it; otherwise it may just be time to watch them again.

Without further ado, we bring you our five ultimate classic movies:


This whimsical art-house film follows the story of quirky Amélie and her overactive imagination, when she finds an old box and decides that it must be reunited with its final owner. This mission inspires her on a quest for altruism… and even helps her discover love.

 When Harry Met Sally

This 1989 classic follows the close friendship between Sally (Meg Ryan) and Harry (Billy Crystal). After one passionate night, these New Yorkers worry that their platonic relationship has been thrown out the window. This movie saw screenwriter Nora Ephron being nominated for an Oscar.


Regarded as the ultimate love story, Casablanca is set in Morocco during World War II. A dashing Humphrey Bogart plays Rick Blaine, an American expat who encounters his resented ex-lover in Morocco – Ilsa Lund played by Ingrid Bergman. However, it turns out that the break-up was not as it seems, and the pair set off to France, with bittersweet consequences.

Moulin Rouge

Moulin Rouge is an extravaganza of costumes, music, song, excess and love. Ewan McGregor plays Christian, a young English poet in the late 1800s who finds himself amongst the Parisian bohemian scene. In the Moulin Rouge nightclub of exotic dancers, he falls in love with Satine (played by Nicole Kidman), which gets him into all manners of difficult circumstances.

Legends of The Fall

Brad Pitt stars in this 90’s movie set in the wilderness of Montana in the early 1900s. The story focuses on the bond of three brothers and their father (Anthony Hopkins) when a new woman disrupts their family life as they become jealous and suspicious of the newcomer, and of each other.
