Default Which one of these biopics should I watch next??

Biopics are the best kind of movies imo, they are real stories based on real events that happened(yes sometimes a tad exagerated). It is fun to watch the movie then look up interviews of the real charecter


Which of these do you guys recommend?:

1. Downfall - the story of Adolf Hitler

2. The buttler - story of some bloke who was the presidents buttler for 50years(Forrest whitaker is the only reason i'd consider this)

3. Invictus - story of Nelson Mandela & south africa racism

4. La vie En Rose - Sad life story of famous French singer Edith Piaf

5. The king's speech - something to do with King George(the brit that tried to invade america, burn the whitehouse)

6. Bronson - British underground prision fighter

7. The last king of scotland - Forrest Whitaker takes on role of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin

8. Frost/Nixon - the interview that ruined president Nixon

9. Selma - Story of MLK famous walk in Selma

10. 12 Years a slave - story of a free black man abducted and sold into slavery

Honourable mentions:

- Ray - Story of famous musician Ray Charle

- The aviator - Leo is in it, but 4 hours long!!, only Leo can pull off a four hour movie

- The queen - story of queen elizabeth the second

- Charlie Wilson's war - Story of some crooked politician involved in helping the afghan rebels in their war against Russia

- The theory of everything - The story of famous sceintist Stephan Hawking

- Im not there - The story of famous musician Bob Dylan

- Good night, & goodluck - story of a famous journalist taking on a crooked senator

- Wolf of wall street - story of Jordan Belfot and how he manipulated the stock broking system

- Capote - jornalist becomes friends with killer on death row

- The experiment - Not a tradional biopic based on a person, rather a biopic based on a scenario that happened in the 80's, a group of adults placed inside a prison experiment


Dishonourable mentions

Killing Jesus - The genius that is Bill O'reilly's take on the story of the prophet Jesus's life

Wolf of Wall Street if you haven't seen that yet...I think you'd enjoy that one the most.

Your #1 on that list is a pretty good film, but it's not necessarily a biopic. It's about the final days or the reich. Nonetheless, I'm sure you'd enjoy it. Bruno Ganz does a great job.

Others not on your list that are pretty good and I no particular order:

Control
The Killing of Jesse Jmaes By The Coward Robert Ford
Motorcycle Diaries

Exactly. And there;s nothing deep about it, which is why it's fun.
