My Favourite Epic Movies

I'm a huge fan of film. My taste is also very versatile. I can love anything from a low budget indie flick to a Hollywood blockbuster, so long as the film is captivating and has substance. The films I've listed below are my favourite 'epic' films - that is, films that have beautiful cinematography and scores, and enthralling twists and turns that keep you fully immersed from start to finish.

Directed by Christopher Nolan and starring the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon Levitt, Inception is a thrilling film with beautiful cinematography, gripping twists and phenomenal acting. This innovative and thought provoking film truly enamoured me the first time I saw it, and it remains one of my favourite films of all time.

The Dark Knight
Okay, so I really like Christopher Nolan movies. This classic Batman film is another all-time favourite of mine. Like the majority of the films on this list, I saw this film many times in the cinema. Everything from the pivotal acting scenes to the intense action sequences make for an irresistible cinematic experience.

Les Misérables
Movies don't get more epic than this. Based on the world famous stage production about pre-revolution France, 'Les Mis' takes the play's beautiful songs and tragic story-lines and accompanies them with beautiful visual scenes of 19th Century France. Making - in my opinion - one of the most amazing films of all time.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Here's one film that I would say is rather underrated. This unique short-story adaptation starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett tells an epic love story featuring a man who ages backwards. Truly beautiful cinematography and a poignant, emotional story-line combine and make this film one of my favourites.

Sweeney Todd 
As already evident by Les Mis's place on this list, dark musicals are sort of my thing. Sweeney Todd is a Gothic tragedy with both beautiful music and imagery. The Gothic visuals are perfection, even the blood in the film (there is a lot of it) is creatively stylized to be a unique shade of red. Sweeney Todd remains my favourite Tim Burton film.

I was able to enjoy all these films in the cinema (often multiple times). But now thanks to current day technology, having a great movie experience doesn't have to end when a film has stopped playing in cinemas. You can now get that epic movie experience at home with the Ultra HD 4K TV Panasonic. These TVs play films (and more) in spectacular, never before seen high-definition, and are an amazing way to bring great movies to life. They feature professional cinema display and were even tuned by Hollywood filmmakers.

I personally hope to watch all the movies on this list on this TV!
