Good Films make your Life Better

Just like a book, a movie is able to touch the hearts of millions. From making you laugh or cry to scare you or make you question your life choices. Either way, a good film stays with you forever.

But what makes a good film?

Of course, good acting, impeccable screenplay, beautiful art direction and cinematography & a great soundtrack. These things are essential. These are the goals all film directors seek to accomplish. Yet, when you combine all these things you get the answer of the question above.  One can never forget a good film or how it made them feel. It simply makes your life better.

And with this, I leave you with some of the best scenes and quotes of the films that made my life better. Not all of these complete all the requirements mentioned above, but they somehow managed to stay with me forever.
