Best movie ever

V 1 Comment
2 Forrest Gump
3 Schindler's List

A brilliant, dramatic, intense yet hopeful film, Schindler's List is a masterpiece. It takes nothing less than sheer brilliance to give the horrors of the Holocaust justice in a format such as filming, but Schindler's List does so incredibly. It shows us how the horrors of the past, with a hopeful message of the future that good will prevail over evil and puts us through 3 and a bit hours of intense, brutal drama to do so.
