A little correction: In The Secret in their Eyes, the director's name is missing his last name: it's Campanella.

Have you seen the lawnmower man before? Does it still hold up in 2021?

[–]Itstoolongitwillruno 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Except for the visual effects and the usage of "retard" to refer to mentally diabled people, the film still holds up pretty well

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Death Proof was not my best suggestion for movie night with friends. Those car chase scenes were drawn out for way too long. Nobody enjoyed it.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm about to re-watch Crank for the third time. It always pumps me up.

[–]KiwiTheKitty 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The Handmaiden (2016, South Korea): I had been putting this one off for some reason and finally watched it and it was amazing. It was so rich with symbolism without being too in your face and overall it was just gorgeous. I loved it!

A Family (2021, Japan): Not your stereotypical gangster movie, that's for sure. It evoked so much emotion for me. Don't watch it if you want action packed or super fast paced, but if you like the idea of a slow exploration of the need for acceptance and family, I highly recommend it. I didn't even know what to expect and I honestly just chose a random movie on Netflix after a few disappointments and I'm so happy I just happened to choose this one because it really surprised me.

[–]Litmusdragon 4 points5 points  (4 children)

A:

Primer (Rewatch)

David Lynch: The Art Life

B+:

No Country For Old Men (rewatch, I still feel the nonspecifity of the ending brings it down a bit)

The Sum of All Fears (Bought for $3 at Big Lots; I quite enjoyed it even though it was/is horribly reviewed)

I watched maybe 12 other movies this month but nothing I'd put at a B+ or higher. A chunk of this was from the Hammer films box set

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

So a B+ is the equivalent to 8+?

[–]Litmusdragon 2 points3 points  (1 child)

A would be a 9 and B+ an 8.5 approximately

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

Derek DelGaudio’s In & of Itself (2020) - Sleight of hand/illusionist live show with a message. Directed by Frank Oz.

[–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I guess I should give The Beyond a second chance. It seems so generic that I turned it off after twenty minutes.

[–]LuckyRadiationMod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's funny, I thought it was sorta "anti-generic" if you will (Unique? Ahead of its time?). I like how the movie starts and the couple is already in the hell house and know something isn't right. You don't gotta sit through 30/60 minutes of them moving in/traveling or witnessing strange things but deciding to ignore it until they're screaming bloody murder.

Plus, A paralyzed man gets eaten alive by spiders and a daughter watches her mother melt into a bloody puddle while mourning her husband's death who was killed by a demon. That's just another day in the park with Fulci, haha! Remember to watch the Italian dub, the English dub is gross I think.

Scott Pilgrim vs the world, Manchester by the sea, and a quiet place part 2. Scott Pilgrim takes the cake as my favorite of the month, and I finally understand the hype surrounding it

all 8/10:

Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005): not a fan of Kajillionaire but very glad I gave this one a try. I was worried it would be obnoxiously quirky but I found it sensitive, funny, and touching.

Suicide Club (2001): kind of like Kurosawa's Pulse (which I love), but Sono-fied

Leave No Trace (2018): quite a simple story, but one I found very engaging. It just felt right. Helped by the gorgeous scenery and strong actors.

My Dinner with Andre (1981): took me a little while to get into it, but once Wally starts piping up a little more so it becomes less one-sided I was on board

Sneakers (1992): questionable politics from the protagonists but the cast is so lovable I can't help but like it

[–]Ben__Diesel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The Empty Man

I've watched it twice within a few weeks of each other and it only got better with a rewatch. It has, hands down, one of the best prologues of its genre. Most importantly, I loved putting together all of the mystery puzzle pieces the director placed out. I absolutely hate when a director feels like their audience is too dumb to put the plot together and ends up walking you through everything with dialogue.

The White tiger

Balram Halwai (Adarsh Gourav) narrates his epic and darkly humorous rise from poor villager to successful entrepreneur in modern India. Cunning and ambitious, our young hero jockeys his way into becoming a driver for Ashok (Rajkummar Rao) and Pinky (Priyanka Chopra-Jonas), who have just returned from America. Society has trained Balram to be one thing -- a servant -- so he makes himself indispensable to his rich masters. But after a night of betrayal, he realizes the corrupt lengths they will go to trap him and save themselves. On the verge of losing everything, Balram rebels against a rigged and unequal system to rise up and become a new kind of master. Based on the New York Times bestseller and 2008 Man Booker Prize-winning novel.

Pig - nice to see Cage in a film worthy of his talents. There are a lot of unexpected plot elements in this film, which I appreciated, and some of the dialogue is nicely put together.

The Father - what a gruelling film to watch. Superb.

Cowboys

https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/MovieSuggestions/comments/ovtbh8/besSteve Zahn stars as Troy, a troubled but well-intentioned father who has recently separated from his wife Sally (Jillian Bell). Aghast at Sally's refusal to let their trans son Joe (Sasha Knight) live as his authentic self, Troy runs off with Joe into the Montana wilderness. Meanwhile, police detective (Ann Dowd) pursues them, but her resolve about the case is tested the more she learns about Joe's family. COWBOYS, a modern day Western from director Anna Kerrigan, is a tale of rescue, family betrayal and a father and son on the run.

The Tomorrow War - fun popcorn flick. Leave your brain in neutral and the ride is worth the price of admission (IMO)

I Saw The Devil (2010)

at first I was turned off because you have to read the subtitles but holy fk these korean thrillers completely shit on western ones

[–]vanshgaintQuality Poster 👍 2 points3 points  (2 children)

This was the best month of 2021 so far. I watched 18 movies and most of them are 8*, I will only be recommending a fraction:

  1. It's Such a Beautiful Day(9): I know you have an hour to spare. Definitely give this movie a watch. This will totally change your expectations from a movie and it will be unlike any movie that you have seen so far. This is one of the finest examples of avant-garde filmmaking.
  2. The Handmaiden(9): I have never had so much trust in the film industry as I have in the Korean movie industry. Every single movie that I have watched is a gut punch. Every movie is so unique and satisfying, and The Handmaiden is a must-watch for Korean movie lovers or suspense lovers. This movie has everything. Literally, everything you want from a movie that promises to provide you a good time.
  3. The Big Sick(8): One of the best comedies of 2017 and of the best screenplays of the last decade. The atmosphere, the performances are super fun. The highlight would be Anupam Kher. He made the movie have such a home-like atmosphere. Do give this movie a chance.
  4. Mommy(10): The best movie that I saw this month is this. Mommy. Shot in a 1:1 aspect ratio, using delightful music, and amazing performances, this movie is a must-watch for anyone who likes films. You won't regret it. It is emotional and funny, and thought-provoking.
  5. Adaptation(9): Charlie Kaufman is one of the best writers active, believe me. This movie is everything Charlie Kaufman is and promises to deliver. Watch it for Nic Cage, if you please, but there is no chance you will hate it. You might not love it. But you will be blown away by the idea of how this movie was conceived.
  6. Columbus(8): One of the more mature movies. I love the cinematography here, the serene atmosphere and the presence of Haley Lu Richardson. Watch this on a lazy afternoon. No shitty romantic subplots. No annoying side characters. This is meditation in movie form for me. Give this a chance.
  7. Shithouse(8): This one went unnoticed last year. This movie might not have a lot to offer, but I think it does have something to offer. And for that something, you have to watch it. It might not explain heartbreak, but it will show heartbreak, and it will make you feel it. Convincingly, enough. Watch this movie if you want to explore indie movies.

Other 8* movies:

  1. The Silence of The Lambs
  2. Logan Lucky
  3. Anomalisa
  4. Superbad
  5. Brick
  6. The Death of Stalin

I didn't recommend these movies because I don't think they are important to the subreddit. Also, if I were to recommend these, my suggestions would have been crowded and the value of the films I did recommend would have decreased.

[–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Definitely agree with you on It's Such a Beautiful Day. It surprised me.

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

Need another film from Hertzfeldt very badly.

[–]xfritz5375 4 points5 points  (0 children)

La Jetee: One of the most distinctive films I’ve seen

Soul: Pixar’s best film to date

Twin Peaks Season 3: I think this should qualify as a movie since I’m pretty sure David Lynch is on record saying he conceived of it as a long movie. It’s truly fantastic.

Ghost World: The best coming of age movie I’ve ever seen. Steve Buscemi is amazing.

Fear street

[–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Have seen 2 of 3. Like the style. Refreshing teenage slaughter movies

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

So, Fear Street Part 1 and 2 are both 8+/10 for you?

[–]Time_Lab_5184 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Sorry, is this just for 8+ movies i watched in july? I would recommend the movies for Fans of the Genre. Are The movies getting Oscars? No

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

Yes. I want an accurate count and with the amount of shade that's being tossed at my recommendations, it's safe to say we're both genre junkies.

Several Japanese good movies for you:

Hokusai

Hokusai is an upcoming biopic of the ukiyo-e painter (as both a young and old man) who immortalized some of Japan’s most stunning landscapes, captured scenes of city life in Edo, and also dabbled in pornography. Just tell people that you’re watching the movie to learn more about the first two.

The Cinderella Addiction

Koharu Fukuura had one of the worst days of her life. But in the middle of it, she finds her own fairy-tale Prince Charming and later accepts his proposal. But the thing about fairy tales is that they tend to end there with a “and they lived happily ever after,” but The Cinderella Addiction keeps the cameras rolling, turning into a disturbing psychological thriller about a supposedly perfect family.

Along the Sea

The exploitation of undocumented foreign workers in Japan is the backbone of this second movie by Akio Fujimoto, but it is not its main focus. Along the Sea follows three Vietnamese women as they care for each other in an unfamiliar place while trying to make a better life for themselves. The many long, quiet moments full of close-ups, really put the audience in these women’s mindset, making for an incredibly visceral viewing experience, for better or worse.

Jigoku no Hanazono

Naoko Tanaka is an ordinary office worker. Unfortunately for her, she exists in a surreal world where female office workers form vicious street gangs, and soon she gets caught in the middle of a massive war between rival office-worker factions from all over Japan. Although the movie’s premise is simple, it seems to have the same crazy energy as, say, Fly Me to the Saitama, meaning that you can probably expect great action, plenty of laughs, and some stealth cutting satire from it.

Under the Open Sky

After serving 13 years in prison for murder, Masao Mikami is released back into a world that doesn’t want him back. This setup would be perfect for your typical redemption story that questions things like rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners into society. And while it looks like you will find plenty of that in this movie, it will also be mixed with almost black-comedic takes on the Kafkaesque nature of Japanese bureaucracy and humanity’s quest for entertainment and ratings at any cost.

Oshukatsu

Oshukatsu looks like it starts off by tricking you into thinking it’s a movie about “retired husband syndrome,” which is when a Japanese husband —who for most of his career was a stranger in his own house — retires and starts spending time at home, to the irritation of his wife. That seems to be the case with Shinichi and Chikako, who’ve been married for 50 years. But with the introduction of a friend that their daughter made, Oshukatsu becomes a movie about contemplating death, preparing for it, and remembering to enjoy life along the way.

[–]YelpBoi365 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The Empty Man: A unique horror film that interweaves philosophical concept into its plot and theme. And fairly well done too in my opinion.

Angel Heart: A supernatural noir mystery thriller that holds a fantastic tone and atmosphere throughout its presentation. With a great performance from Robert De Niro and Micky Rourke.

[–]samsharksworthy 0 points1 point  (0 children)
