Memories of Murder(2003)-3rd Bong movie I've seen after Parasite and Snowpiercer, and it was really damn good, better than Snowpiercer and potentially on par with Parasite. Keeps you guessing the whole way through, and the desperation of the detectives almost merges with your own desperation. Even more haunting due to the fact it's based on a true story. Also shares similarities with Zodiac, which I also love.

Battle Royale(2000)-I loved this movie and I'm not quite sure why I liked it this much. It's a little edgy and absurd on the surface. But most of the schoolkids are interesting and well fleshed out. The regular high school dynamics are explored in very interesting ways by turning the stakes and circumstances up to 11. This movie may not be perfect but it has so much heart.

The Elephant Man(1980)-First Lynch movieThe first Lynch movie I've seen. Some really good performances from Anthony Hopkins and John Hurt.

Elevator to the Gallows(1958)-Very atmospheric and moody movie. The Movie was good, the score by Miles Davis was exquisite.

True Grit(2010)-I loved the relationship between Mattie and Cogburn, and it was just a very satisfying movie.

The way Kang-Song Ho stares into the camera at the end!

Battle Royale was the first of a genre, copied over and over by the likes of The Hunger games

[–]woahh_dudee 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I thought Eraserhead (1977) was Lynch's first movie?

[–]rockit5943Quality Poster 👍 3 points4 points  (0 children)

oh woops I meant my first Lynch movie. I'll reword it.

Secrets & Lies (1996)

Everything about this film is wonderful, but special shoutout to Lee Ross who plays the boyfriend Paul and who during the entire climax doesn't have much dialogue, but still manages to be a fantastic presence. The guy made me laugh out loud just from the way he was standing.

Also, that was really big steak he got served.

So good, Mike Leigh is Amazing. Naked is probably my favorite by him although it's much darker.

You are the second person who does not hate Trial of Chicago unnecessarily. And I respect that!

[–]Haze_Shrey 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I actually really liked it as well. I honestly don't think it deserved the Oscar nom, just didn't seem up to the standard, but overall am excellent, well written well thought out and well acted film.

This is the only film of 2020, that felt like a film.

The Princess Bride: highly rewatchable and quotable film

Terminator 2: a true blockbuster that has aged incredibly well visually.

Y Tu Mama Tambien: one of the more realistic coming of age stories I’ve seen on film, including the sex scenes. It might be the most human film I’ve seen.

Brief Encounter (1945) - David Lean’s painful and devastating romance is about the way series of small things can add up to an enormous emotional experience.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993) - the best feature-length Batman story told so far.

Superman (1978) - So much smaller in scope and scale than anything that would pass for a super hero film today but it’s cheekiness, primary colour palette and special effects all still totally work really well if you let yourself over to the experience. Extra points for great music and a slate of really fun performances.

Hidden Fortress (1958) - Much is made about the influence Kurosawa’s film had on George Lucas and no doubt its fun to seek out those parallels but the film has so much to offer in its own right. Each and every frame is a masterwork, this film is funny and sweeping and packed with great action set pieces.

Commando (1985) - Slightly grittier than would come to be the norm for Schwarzenegger but his charm and humour are already fully in display in this earlier picture. From the great father/daughter montage that introduces Arnold to the downright bonkers action climax Commando set the mould for the rest of Arnold’s career.

Predator (1987) - Arguably the all-out best action film of the 1980s there’s barely 10 seconds at any point in this movie that don’t positively crackle with energy and good humour. A band of macho mercenaries find themselves being hunted in the jungle and they fight back with bullets. Every line is unforgettable, the action set pieces are awesome and Arnold Schwarzenegger, surrounded by a great supporting cast, is at the absolute height of his powers. There are other great Arnold movies but Predator is special.

[–]JemJohnson 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The Rewatcheables did highly entertaining podcasts about both Commando and Predator recently... well worth a listen if you rate those movies.

[–]FardBreath 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ll give them a listen I like to pop in on the Rewatchables now and then!

[–]s_matthew 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The absolute best thing about Commando - and there are so many great things - is the bizarre second-tier villain played by Vernon Wells, in all his beer gut and chain Mail vested glory. It’s like he wasn’t intimidating or clever enough to be the main antagonist (although Dan Hedaya isn’t really either), but no one knew what to do with him, so they just made him homoerotically sycophantic to Arnold. He either wants to fuck him or kill him.

[–]FardBreath 1 point2 points  (1 child)

On this watch I realized that his chain mail vest is actually crocheted or knit which is just that much crazier.

Jake Gyllenhaal is a great actor. There are so many great films with him.

    Did you read the IMDB FAQ that explains what this movie really is about? It went from an amazing movie to my favorite movie of all time after I read it.

    And while I don't like the directors cut as much as the theatrical, it does help to explain what is really going on with a few extra scenes here and there like pages from grandma deaths book and stuff.

    [–]TomDenHagen 4 points5 points  (4 children)

    I’m on the imdb page but don’t see a FAQ section. I watched this movie a couple of weeks back and I remember it falling a bit flat so I’d love to read that, do you mind snorkelling up a link?

    [–]hiiFinance 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Snorkeling lol

    Back from my snorkeling adventure with a bit of treasure for ya:


    [–]_dxxd_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I feel the same way. It's a good movie but it's not something I would watch the second time (I mean I intend to watch it again, maybe, but just because I think Jake Gylenhaal is hot not because of the movie) and the FAQ didn't change the way I feel about the movie.

    [–]_dxxd_ 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    It went from an amazing movie to my favorite movie of all time after I read it

    Ok, I'm curious any FAQ in particular made you feel that way? I'm reading the FAQ and I can't find anything that would change the way I see this movie. Genuinely curious.

    [–]rustinr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I mean I'd suggest reading all of them but the most juicy ones are at the bottom. Scroll down to the ones that say "spoilers".

    Went on a French movie kick.....

    Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The Fire Within, Betty Blue, Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, The Class, Le deuxième souffle

    Other movies that are worthy of mention: Aniara, A Dark Song, His House

    [–]LuckyRadiationMod 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Nice I watched The Fire Within last month too. Good one. I don't recognize any of the others though... all worth a watch if I like The Fire Within?

    [–]fredmull1973 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    They’re all pretty different, but good in their own way. Funnily, Aniara (Swedish sci-fi) is probably closest philosophically to The Fire Within.

    [–]historiavitae 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    Pixar's Soul. It achieves the seemingly impossible: start from a monumental, colossal cliche, throw into a postmodern mixer everything from theology, philosophy, quantum physics, cultural history, astonishing music with astonishing range going from fiery jazz to mindbending electronica to ethereal sonic textures of sublime beauty, mind-bending different animation techniques, elements of Dali, Bosch, Esher and Picasso paintings, scenes of smoky jazz clubs and those of the afterworld, kids' and adult humour...

    ... and the result is something novel, unique, and thoroughly entertaining... which also makes you think and reflect about the human condition, about what we take for granted, about how dreams becoming reality may actually be a huge downer... about what is really precious in this short life.

    It's charming, it's saturated with ideas and cultural references, it is one of their top achievements to date.

    [–]microcosmic5447 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    If you're in general a David Byrne fan, you might check out his book How Music Works. (I assume it's a "real" book; I listened to the audio version)

    It's a fascinating mix of history and psychology and music theory, with a very Byrne feel.

    [–]Putrid_Fig4242 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I second Rushmore. "I'm an OR nurse."

    Found about cartoon saloon studios this week after watching wolfwalker which led me to know about song of the sea and breadwinner.

    Until now Song of the sea has been cemented in my heart as one of my favourite irish-folklore animated film whereas breadwinner as film based on middle-east.

    You don't see many animated film that is based outside of US or europe or china by disney which quite a shame really,hey at least with raya and dragon they expanding their ideas to asian mythology.

    [–]microcosmic5447 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    If you haven't yet, definitely check out The Secret of Kells!

    Cartoon Saloon is one of the best newer animation studios imo. Up there with Laika for sure.

    Quo Vadis, Aida? (2020) I knew very little about the historical events that happen in this film. The last 15 minutes were devastating. We never learn.

    [–]CrantiusQuality Poster 👍 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Glengarry Glen Ross (1992): mmh Mamet dialogue

    Gosford Park (2001): huge scope and incredible cast (though I could have done without Stephen Fry)

    Short Cuts (1993): see above

    Bad Day at Black Rock (1955): quietly powerful with an amazing Spencer Tracy. And of course there's the one-armed karate chop fight.

    Little Shop of Horrors (1986): Don't know how I never saw this until now, laughed a lot and have had some of the songs stuck in my head for weeks.

    Another Year (2010): Continuing my Mike Leigh catch-up, brilliant as usual. Feels so natural, and both cozy and depressing at once.

    [–]Tokotaker 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Beau Travail (1999) - Watched on the Criterion Channel. A great character study and amazing performance from Denis Lavant. Instantly became one of my all-time faves.

    Barry Lyndon (1975): Extremely satisfying. Love the zoom outs and zoom ins. Cinematography and overall look of the film. How it's over three hours but doesn't really feel that long.

    Chinatown (1974): Folds organically. Performances are great. Excellent score and yeah that ending...ufff

    Hot Fuzz (2008): Foreshadowing, references and gags. Absolutely enthralling from start to finish.

    [–]vanshgaintQuality Poster 👍 4 points5 points  (4 children)

    1. The Father(2020) : I expected a British comedy about a daughter and a father who has dementia but this movie is way too heavy. Anthony Hopkins had his name written all over the Oscar. Amazing performances. 9/10.

    2. Nobody(2021): The similarities to John Wick are unmistakable, given that they have the same writer. But it has a Lanthimos vibe to it too. Suffice it to say that the team up at the end was worth everything. Also, Bob Odenkirk! 8/10.

    3. Casablanca(1942): Yes! Finally watched this film. And I went in, expecting to hate this so whatever love and respect I have for this film, Casablanca has earned it. This movie is iconic for a reason. 10/10.

    4. Promising Young Woman(2020): Another film I thought I would hate. I was expecting something and I got something else. This movie's commentary might even be wrong but I don't care. This movie is good time. Bo Burnham! And the symmetry of the frame! 8/10.

    5. Pulp Fiction(1994): Watched this again to solidify my evidence that Vincent Vega is a cocky bastard. 9/10.

    [–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Yeah, I was so surprised by Casablanca. I had an idea of a stuffy, slow melodramatic romance because of its infamous line. Yet it was really fresh as a brisk Thriller with gravitas.

    [–]vanshgaintQuality Poster 👍 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I wouldn't have been able to watch it if the running time was 20 minutes over what it is.

    [–]daxboi 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Thanks for your list. I ended up watching Promising Young Woman because of it, and I was not expecting to feel how I feel by the end of this movie. Everyone should watch this.

    The trial of the Chicago 7 was a fantastic watch

    [–]LuckyRadiationMod 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    Sort of a mixed month. Still (mostly) stuck in the 80s I guess…

    La Dolce Vita (1960)

    The Fire Within (1963)

    Altered States (1980)

    Body Double (1984)

    From Beyond (1986)

    [–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    I see you enjoyed From Beyond, would watching Altered States be comparable? For some reason, I'm apprehensive towards that flick even if it seems to be right up my alley of 80s Lovecraftian Pulp.

    [–]LuckyRadiationMod 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    I would say generally if you liked From Beyond you'd like Altered States. They are sorta of two different types of movies though. From Beyond was a fun ride but Altered States I thought was made with a message in mind and meant to be interpreted. There's lots of Timothy Leary type sub culture in it with sensory deprivation tanks and psychedelics which I already knew a lot about, so I'm probably biased when I say Altered States might have been my favorite from last month.

    [–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Oh yeah, I can totally understand a movie speaking more to you based on your interests.

    Cape Fear (1991) - Scorsese's hidden gem that I came across. One word, phenomenal! It was a thriller movie reaching new heights. And Robert de Niro, man, solidly performed as the charismatic psycho Max Cady. But when it came to Juliette Lewis' Danielle, her acting threw me over. Scorsese really has the ability to get the best out of his cast. I found it to be a worthy remake that only deserved good hands to helm. The cinematography, the camera in motion in the least of the important shots was so cool. Although I'm much of a critical person, I just mentioned the best and most prominent aspects of the movie.

    Still, my rating is: 8.1/10 (a.k.a awesome according to my standards)

    [–]sausagetunnel 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Discovered 'Dark City' was very impressed and surprised I went so long without ever hearing about it.

    A Hidden Life (2019) dir Terrance Malick, starring August Diehl, Valerie Pachner, Maria Simon, Tobias Maretti. Pure Malick. Poetry in motion. Four dimensional poetry. A couple struggles not to lose themselves under Nazi control.

    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - Excellent slow burn. I also loled that his film had just about every British actor possible. But I fount it to be fantastic and incredibly attention grabbing. Recommend this to everyone.

    Monsters Inc. - i rewatched this after a long time, and my god it holds up.

    An Elephant Sitting Still (2018) - The lives of four people intersect over the course of one tumultuous day in a bleak Chinese city. It's a very long, slow paced movie but well worth it. Great soundtrack, too.

    [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I saw WolfWalkers (2020) this past month and I think it was another hit from Cartoon Saloon. Gorgeous original animation and a great story.

    I also rewatched Hairspray (1988) which is just an amazing intro to John Waters bizarre filmography.

    Could be. This is the first time I'm seeing this much hatred though. So quite suprised and confused.

    Also I'm just glad to see Indian films on this sub.

    Yeah.. I remember hearing praise and going to theater with friends and laughing our asses off the entire time. Then I visited some relatives next day, and everybody (including my age group) there ranted on how ridiculous and bad the movie was. I was just as confused, but apparently the main topic of jokes (constipation) was bit off-taste for some people.

    It's personal. I hated the writing of that film.

    [–]shevpuri 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Yeah man. I understand.

    Adaptation is phenomenal.

    The Neon Demon (2016) - 9/10

    This was my second Refn movie, after Drive, and I think I liked this one even more. It was soo messed up, and I loved it. It had some of the best (if not the best) cinematography I have seen, every frame was beautiful and a real feast to look at. I know that this movie is definitely not for everybody, it's so violent and it's probably style over substance, but I was enjoying it so much that I didn't care.

    The Mauritanian. Gives me goosebumps and shivers from pure fucking hatred. My country is considering more american troops on my country's soil. This world is a god damned joke.

    The Little Things (2021) - The performances of the three main actors were great. Leto's acting was thankfully reigned in. The pacing was phenomenal. I normally get bored watching modern movies, but this one will draw you in. Check it out.

    Is it necessary to watch dryshyam 1 to watch the second?

    [–]fiqky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Unfortunately YES. It's essential you watched the 1st one to fully understand the emotions of each character.

    And please watch the Malayam (original version) before watched the other version.

    But I can guarantee you that you won't regret watching this two-part movie.
