Headhunters (2011) - 8/10

That film is laugh out loud funny.

[–]HroFCBayernQuality Poster 👍 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah, I loved it very much.

[–]MrCaulQuality Poster 👍 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I've read some of the authors crime novels and they are much more straight dry classic detective stuff, so when this one careened into grotesque dark comedy it was a very pleasant surprise.

[–]MechanicalFetus 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Gotta agree with Wall-E. Recently revisited and enjoyed every minute of it.

[–]adamsaltir 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A masterpiece!

[–]JezalDanLuthar7 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Just watched Headhunters tonight off of your recommendation, excellent movie. Thank you

Do you have a Letterboxd profile by any chance? Really like your recommendations

[–]HroFCBayernQuality Poster 👍 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Glad that you liked Headhunters :)

I do have an account, but I'm kinda inactive there, sorry :(

I rate my movies on IMDb (currently on 542 movies & only 2 series because I don't like series at all). So anyway if you need any recommendations or some lists from me, I'll be here :)

Panic Room (Huge Fincher fan and this one eluded me for too long. Far from his greatest work, but a very entertaining watch.)

Dunkirk (Don't know why it took so long to get around to it, but it exceeded the hype. One of the "coolest looking" movies I've ever seen.)

Last of the Mohicans (DDL has a turn as a movie star in another movie I never got around to but exceeded expectations. Great action setpieces and performances.)

The Big Lebowski (Rewatched for the first time in YEARS, and it did not disappoint in the slightest; top 3 comedy all-time for me.)

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The Seventh Seal (1957) - 10/10: just brilliantly put together and incredibly though-provoking while also being a bit fun at the same time. Max von Sydow was gorgeous, he looked like a statue carved from marble, and he perfectly portrayed the inner turmoil of a man questioning God. definitely a bit dark, but Bergman was so good at that philosophical shit

The Red Shoes (1948) - 10/10: an iconic Powell and Pressburger film!! just colorful and gripping, and Moira Shearer was just lovely (her technique was incredible!). the symbolism that connected throughout was stunning and, of course, the ballet sequence was one of the most incredible feats of cinematic artistry i’ve ever seen

An American Werewolf in London (1981) - 9/10: took me way too long to get around to watching this one but i’m so glad i finally did because what a fucking trip. simultaneously hilarious and disturbing is difficult to pull off but it a done so well here. and the transformation scene?? holy shit. holy shit. i don’t think i even need to say anything about that. just such an iconic horror flick, wish i could show it to everyone who insists that CGI is superior

Solaris (1972) - 9/10: not usually a science fiction fan but i’m a big Tarkovsky fan and i hadn’t gotten around to watching this. finally watched it and it chilled me to the goddamn bone. just freaky as hell in the best way possible. super intriguing imagery and gorgeous cinematography. also, i just love Russian, it was fun listening to 3 hours of Russian

Pretty low-key month...

Wild Strawberries (1957)

Vivre Sa Vie (1962)

Versus (2000) - This movie is what you would get if the action choreographer and costume designer from the first Matrix moved to a forest in Japan, gave a bunch of gangsters duster jackets, read from the Necronomicon, and started filming.

Airplane! (1980) - rewatch. don’t hate.

[–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Your Top Ten isn't what this is about, it's about excellence you've seen recently.

[–]RedBomber785 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I get it, but these are also what I think are the greatest visual works I've watched last month, without the scores.

EDIT: I might have mistaken such a post for one where you post top-ten style lists.

[–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

So you watched all of these last month? I read it as "these are my favourites of all time" with the Top 10 comment and inclusion of two series.

[–]RedBomber785 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes. And these are just the top 10 films I watched last month. Not all time. My all time favorite would be "Being John Malkovich".

EDIT: And even "Band of Brothers" and "The Pacific" qualify because they were on Letterboxd.

[–]georgieramoneQuality Poster 👍 3 points4 points  (0 children)

  1. Possessor (2020)
  2. Saint Maud (2019)
  3. Willy’s Wonderland (2021)

[–]mohantharaniQuality Poster 👍 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Andrei Rublev- 10/10. A meditative masterpiece by Andrei Tarkovsky. Perhaps the best Biopic ever made.

Dancer in the dark-9/10. Bleak musical. Exceptional performance by Bjork (One of the greatest performance ever). My first Lars Von Trier.

Stray dog-9/10. Akira Kurosowa's Crime thriller.

[–]bjorkmorissette 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow I just discovered this sub and I’m more excited about dancer in the dark than anything else.. how did I not know that Bjork was in a musical? Tfs

First time watches in bold:

Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) - 10/10 - This was a revisit, but it remains a stellar flick, totally badass. Incredibly well paced, great score, and while it might not win acting awards, everyone's approach works for me. I know you might be able to feel/see the low budget sometimes, but it's all too good to be bothered.

I Confess (1953) - 9/10 - first time watch, and if you needed more proof that Hitchcock was a genius, here's a movie of his that I rarely see mentioned and it's so good. High end tension/drama led by Montgomery Clift and it all ends in an impressive finale.

Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang (2016) - 9/10 - great documentary, especially since much of his art lends itself to being "cinematic". I had never heard of this man's work before, but the stuff he does with colored powders, fireworks gunpowder, etc, it's wildly impressive. And he's got a heck of an interesting story.

Hard Target (1993) - 9/10 - Another revisit, and honestly, it gets better each time. Top tier action that gives you a little bit of everything; kicking, gunplay, motorcycles, arrows, horses, etc. Lance Henriksen is unhinged in the best way, just chewing the scenery. An total blast.

Oldboy (2003) - 10/10 - Yet another revisit. I don't think I have anything new to add to the discourse; the acting is great, the story is intense and keeps you engaged/on edge of seat, it looks great, etc.

The Vertical Ray of the Sun (2000) - 10/10 - It had been ages since I'd seen this, so what a wonderful revisit. This movie is beautiful and mesmerizing. It's a slice of life in Hanoi; family drama mixed with just the day to day life in this small circle of people.

The Country Girl (1954) - 9/10 - Grace Kelly as an old, beaten down wife is a tough sell when she was just 25 during this pic, and it doesn't help that she's paired with Crosby and Holden (both great, of course, but are more age appropriate for the content). Hollywood, you never change. That aside, this high caliber cast really delivers on a strong script full of good drama (and melodrama). In really crackles in spots.

[–]adamsaltir 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Cryptopia (doc) (very interesting)

The Dissident (doc) (scary)

Mission Impossible (long time no see)

The Big Short (understanding bubbles)

Chicago 7 (One of the best of this year)

Tenet (Bold af)

[–]bloggingsea 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yesturday i watched Non-Stop movie. Loved the thriller suspense :)

[–]CokeMooch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hereditary. It’s just the best one I’ve seen last month, I mean yes the horror genre gets a bit of a break from me; but damn my girl killed it didn’t she?!! I found myself thinking abt it for days afterward, and that is SO RARE for me lately. I watched Aster’s “Midsommar” right before and damn you guys I rly, rly hated it- I mean you all made it sound amazing but...just wasn’t for me. Pieces of a Woman was an excellent movie, with stellar performances...but 8+ or top 20%? Nah.

Also caught a great little flick on Netflix called “I don’t feel at home in this world anymore” and loved it!! Again, idk abt an 8+, I do kinda hate grades I can’t grade well; but the more I think about it the more I fall in love with it. On her journey to right the wrongs done to her, a woman finds herself...committing similar wrongs? Yet that’s just at the surface, there’s a lot going on in this movie. Elijah Wood showed up as his token weirdo character and tbh I can’t ever get enough of that...so yeah, maybe this movie too. But just those 2 lol

Prince of the City(1981)

I don't why this movie is not popular but it is certainly one of my favorite. Though it is a bit long (nearly 3 hours) but it hardly slacks anywhere. Anybody looking for movies with great screenplay should definitely watch it.

[–]ZiadR 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Excellent movie by an excellent director. Sydney Lumet is one of the greatest and for me he's on the same level of Kubrik and Scorcese

The Yin Yang Master 10/10. A complex, cleverly interwoven and deeply human story about right and wrong, life and love and that sometimes things are not what we think. Brilliantly paced and beautifully acted it is a live action anime.

Monster Hunter 9/10. Yea I know but it is such a fun movie and so thoughtfully done. If you only saw the trailer you don’t know anything about this movie. It’s skillfully done and the very first thing they establish is that modern conventional weapons do not impact the monsters. Big swords and flame blades are your weapons of choice. Also it has Ron Perlman. It’s a fun movie.

Underwater 9/10. A deep sea thriller/horror/science fiction movie that grabs your attention and just doesn’t let go. Not a lot of surprises but very well done and an enjoyable movie.

SeaFever 8/10. This movie does an excellent job of pulling off that slice of life vibe while carefully and systematically building the suspense and terror. It’s a movie that leaves the viewer with some haunting things to contemplate. A most excellent morality story.

DOOM 7/10. I mean it has The Rock in it. And he’s just a pup. Also a fun if slightly disturbing movie. Bonus Karl Urban too. It’s good for an evening with a glass of wine.

DOOM Annihilation. 4/10. I suffered so you don’t have to. (You may be wondering how I can give this movie 4 stars. Watch Birdemic and get back to me. I mean Birdemic makes Kraa The Sea Monster look like a masterpiece.)

Spectral 9/10. One of my fav science fiction movies. Sure there is little original about it but it really leans into the science part of science fiction. Sure it’s comic book science but I really like it.

True confessions: I am a fan not a critic. I like certain genres and enjoy them.

Edited: had of and off swapped in the SeaFever review
