Titanic (1997)
Director: James Cameron

The Seventh Seal (1957)
Director: Ingmar Bergman

The Magnificent Ambersons (1942)
Director: Orson Welles
Welles' family drama is of the greats somehow, despite the fact that it was infamously molested by the studio while Welles holidayed. The suits blamed Pearl Harbour for the insertion of an upbeat ending. Read Review

Grease (1978)
Director: Randal Kleiser

The Green Mile (1999)
Director: Frank Darabont
Darabont's other Stephen King prison movie is not entirely successful at carrying its own weight, but with the heft comes a certain raw emotional power. Contains cinema's most disturbing execution scene. Read Review
