Some of the greatest films of Hollywood fall under the ‘R’ or restricted rating such as The Godfather, The Shawshank Redemption, and Pulp Fiction, which means anyone under 17 requires parental guidance to see it. However, there are many PG-13 films, which can be watched by everyone over the age of 13 and are also known to be some of the best films that have come out of Hollywood. Here are some of the top ones:
The Dark Knight
Christopher Nolan revitalized the character of Batman with this film. This remains one of the best DC films ever and Heath Ledger’s portrayal of Joker remains one of the most convincing Hollywood villains ever.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Before Guardians of the Galaxy, most of the Marvel films looked pretty much the same. This film was bright, colorful, energetic, and with a prominent soundtrack that featured many epic songs. It became a big hit that earned a lot more at the box office than anyone could have expected.
With a big ensemble cast that included Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, and Cillian Murphy, Nolan had another big success with Inception. It showed a world where your dreams could influence you in a much greater way than you could ever dream of.
Another Nolan hit, Interstellar was a sci-fi film with lots of space travel. With Earth dying, a spaceship is sent out to look for habitable planets so humanity can survive, and the only trouble? The duration of time that passes on Earth is much longer than what the passengers experience.
Steven Speilberg has given many great films over the years that can be enjoyed by all ages, and Jurassic Park is one of his finest. The film still holds up today as most of the special effects used were practical and don’t come off as dated even in the era of CGI.
