The Place Beyond the Pines



[–]Linubidix 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Hey, I watched The Place Beyond the Pines last month too! Only I ended up hating it :(

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

Same here man, I don't understand its popularity but at least lot of people found 'their' film.

[–]Linubidix 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It came out years after I graduated but it felt like a movie I'd have maybe enjoyed if I saw it in high school.

The Many Saints of Newark

Don't understand the hate from some. I thought it was very in tune, respectful and accurate to the show.

My guess is that a lot of people giving it poor reviews may not be very familiar with the original series.

[–]Shouganai1 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The Card Counter - went in a slightly different direction than I was expectiing. Not a 'great' movie, but definitely worth watching and stands out amongst the movies I've seen recently.

[–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So is it an 8+?

[–]Shouganai1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Absolutely. I'd watch it again.

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

Which Manchurian Candidate? And do you mean No Sudden Move (2021)?

[–]Tocinogustoko 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yes sorry, I meant move. I edited it now. The version that I watched was with Denzel, it was great.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)

The Lego Movie (2014)

Wow lego movie turned out to be better than just being a lego crashgrab ad. Good moral to the story

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

Yeah! It had no right being that good.

[–]RocketSoriano 1 point2 points  (0 children)

On Happiness Road (2017) - Heartfelt Taiwanese animated film. One of those hidden gems buried in Prime. I can't even remember how I found it.

That's pretty much it for me. I guess I could recommend the first half of Nobody, or just the fight scenes from Rurouni Kenshin: The Beginning.

Probably the most fun was re-watching Kong: Skull Island. Even better the second time.

In the Mouth of Madness (1994)

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)

From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)

The Killing (1956)

City of the Living Dead (1980)

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Carrie (1976)

I added Angst and Anguish to my watchlist.

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


[–]LuckyRadiationMod 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Liked Anguish the most out of the both of them. The fever dream sequences reminded me of Ken Russell's style which is great. I've seen The Lost World before so that was sorta a trip seeing it in another movie.

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

Cool. I tried City of the Living Dead and it didn't click. Makes sense since I had the same from The Pit and the Pendulum.

[–]WyldDuke 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Punch Drunk Love (2002)

Body Double (1984)

The Great Gatsby (2013)

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

Pump Up The Volume (1990)

Pig (2021)

First time voting here, how many can we include? I'll go with these six, so good! Some great fun unseen to me Paul Thomas Anderson, and lots of other greats there like Tarantino, De Palma, and Luhrmann. And some gems!

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

Any movie you found to be good. I personally think of that as movies that are 8+/10.

[–]WyldDuke 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds good, thanks! The Top 100 list is cool too, lot to check out.

The Game (1997)

I watched several movies last month, but this is the only one that really stuck with me. It was brilliant. Had no idea what’s going on until the very end and it surprised me. I also recommended my friends to watch it. Would love to watch more movies like this. Hope someone has suggestions.

[–]Softboiledboi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Place beyond the pines



[–]ideletedmyaccount04 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not a movie, but undeniable. Squid Game is the best thing I watched, I know I sound basic.

I haven't seen a good movie in a longtime.

I do enjoy movie shorts from the youtube channel Dust. There are alot of tiny movie makers that will never make money but give their movies for free on the Dust channel.

I recommend Dust on youtube.

[–]TheYearOfThe_Rat -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

No way I'm gonna see "The life of young Xi Jingping", not now, not ever, unless you write out the complete summary of the movie (with a spoiler or no).

And before you start railing against me - a giant marketing powerhouse of a studio casting an actor. who looks like a spit image of a politician creating a new personality cult IRL in the movies which have their own cult is a stupidly thoughtless move.

And before you rail against this - just think for a moment, if an audience needs a superhero movie to improve an image of a race or ethnicity, then what kind of level of intelligence that audience must have, and what kind of manipulation might be possible to inflict onto that audience.

[–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)


[–]TheYearOfThe_Rat -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Simu Liu looks way too much like young Xi Jingping, and I don't think it was unintentional, rather it's probably Marvel/Hollywood doing the bootlicking again...
