8. Schindler’s List :
Another great movie is listed of Steven Spielberg. This Story is a perfect example of the Holocaust. The Holocaust supplies the field for the story, rather than the subject. The movie is two parallel character story—one of a con man and the other of a psychopath. Oskar Schindler, who swindles the Third Reich, and Amon Goeth, who represents its pure evil and thinks the opportunity of war, creates that man.
Oskar Schindler is a business executive. He arrives in Krakow in 1939. He is ready to make his fortune from world war 2, which has just started. He joined the Nazi party for political expediency.

That thing gives us a hope of light. You feel the emotion for every one of them who is on that ship. That very depressing to see them dying.

4. The Dark Knight :
The Dark knight is the Best Philosophical superhero Movie directed by Christopher Nolan. This movie based on Batman, who is known as the pillar of justice faced with a purely evil character Joker. Basically, that superhero movie is based on Batman’s Ideology vs. Joker’s philosophy. Batman’s Ideology is never to kill people even if they are evil he thinks everybody has an equal chance for changing into good people Joker philosophy is to Break the ideology and morality, he thinks everybody has a dark side if the opportunity comes to show that dark sight, everybody shows that.
This conflict of two ideology makes this movie one of the best. “This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object” This dialogue explains that thing beautifully. Joker is the Unstoppable Force, and Batman is the Unmovable object. That kind of conflict makes a bond between them. Even at one point, Joker says “I Don’t want to Kill You, what will I do without you?”. Jokar had chances to kill Batman but he didn’t do that because joker likes to play with people’s morality, he is not interested in killing people. That thing makes this Movie unique.
This Movie Philosophy is Depper than you thought. This is the only superhero movie where Villain is more famous than hero because of the acting of Heath Ledger‘s incredible acting. He purely justified that unique concept. That types of conflict make this superhero movie The best Superhero Flim and One of the Best Film ever made.
