God tier movies to watch.
God tier movies i have watched.
>500 Days of Summer
Yeah that was a pretty good one m8
I'd say "Shaun of The Dead" is pretty damn awesome, it's my favourite movie
i just watched Oldboy and The Usual Suspects
both were really good, idunno about god-tier but they were definitely the best movies ive seen in a while
Trying to watch a good horror movie. Recently saw Dark Skies, Annabelle and The Possession of Michael King, pretty good I guess. Anyone got some suggestions? Like to be on the edge of my seat.
>Inb4 a bunch of non-scary shit suggestions from the 80's
I thought the first half of Chernobyl Diaries was decent, but I possibly just liked the scenery. Half way in the movie goes downhill fast thought. Was also disappointed with Martyrs.
Event Horizon is really good.
It was really interesting for the first hour I loved the setting and the idea behind it and it was well executed but somewhere in the middle it lost me with all the excessive romance
Not a detriment to the movie though, if that's something you can get behind then you'll love it
Definitely agree with pulp fiction, eternal, and fight club
Haven't watched 500 days of summer yet though.
There's a lot more movies I really like (matrix), but those are ones I can still rewatch and enjoy, especially eternal sunshine's fucking god tier soundtrack
Go watch Evangelion
You'll see things you wont see anywhere else
I didn't mind the romance - in fact I loved it because I think it's a good "addition".
I fucking missed watching a goog movie, all the new ones suck and I accidentally got to this one.
Plex pissed me off last night (it cuts the movie every 30 minutes and I need to restart it) so that is why I stopped watching it. Tonight I am downloading another version.
Anyone who posts departed should watch the movie it was based off, internal affairs (hong kong film). Watched it when it came out and I have the whole set, it's fucking amazing. Not saying departed was bad, it was great, but what it was based off (original movie) of was even better
anything christopher nolan, paul thomas anderson.. recently watched enemy with jake gyllenhaal and it was good. gone girl was amazing, david fincher is pretty good and trent reznors movie scores are fucking perfect
watch the series neon genisis evangelion episodes 1 - 24 and than end of evangelion and your mind will get blown.
Werckmeister Harmonies is one of the most beautiful films of all time.
I love the idea that everything is headed toward chaos and disorder. The example they used was the smoke not being able to go back into the cigarette and become whole again. To be a modern day human is to have the perception of control but in reality we have none.
Enter The Void may be the best movie ever made. It explains life itself.
Part of the reason could be because I'm a mathfag, but The Cube is a fantastic movie.
Just posted this in another thread but it deserves it here. Made in 1976 and amazingly relevant today.
Hard to Be a God (2013)
Under the Skin (2013)
The Holy Mountain (1973)

Man Bites Dog (1992)

Memento: Jimmy isn't the bad guy, Guy Pearce is. He has chosen to forget he's already killed his wife's killer.
The Prestige: Christian Bale's character has an identical twin. It's his assistant. That's how he does the magic.
The Machinist: Christian Bales character killed a kid Ina hit and run. That's why he can't sleep and is going crazy.
Time to grow up faggot.
Just to avoid being repetitive, anyone got good recommendations for best Asian movies? I really like the dramatic style of many of them, especially how their fantasy genre usually plays out.
I'd instantly recommend the following if you haven't seen:
War of Arrows
Painted Skin 2: The Ressurection (The 2nd is not only much better but doesn't require the 1st to watch)
Salvage (2006) also known as Gruesome. This movie gives me the chills every time I watch it. Think Groundhog Day adapted to psychological horror... Oh, Groundhog Day (1993) is also god tier.
jimmy isn't the bad guy, he's the cop who investigated the murder of guy pierce's wife. he helps give guy pierce a reason to live by constantly giving him john g's (who are bad guys) to kill. guy pierce is the guy in the story he talks about who had the same problem as him, it was really him who just gave his wife too much insulin cause she was a diabetic
I recommend Calvary. Brendon Gleeson is realy God tier in it.
Another amazing Asian film I'd recommend:
Not necessarily god tier, but you can't be too picky when you want to step away from the atmosphere of western cinema for a few hours.
I heard really good things about In Bruges, but I just couldn't make it past the first 20 minutes or so. Perhaps I just need to try it again in a different mood.
"Croupier" is good
"Hold on tightly, let go lightly"
Quantum computing is already here, what is on the verge is having them be widespread commercially, because only the extremely rich (or government funded) could afford them
The friend who made me watch it told me that european movies have a slower more relaxed pace to them, so you just have to stick it out. It's worth it, trust me.
Lav Diaz shortest film with only 4 hours running time. Still an epic masterpiece.

From how I see it, movies like Fight Club and V for Vendetta fall short of godtier status because they don't have that lasting appeal. Their strengths are in the way they affect the viewer's worldview. So as you get older, they lose their affect after you've already been exposed to them, whereas younger audiences 1) are still young enough to be impacted very strongly by their messages and 2) don't have as much practice at distancing themselves from their first viewing of a film.
For a movie (or really any similar medium such as books, comics, or television shows) to have lasting appeal, it needs to be rewatchable without losing any of what made its first viewing outstanding.
Just my two cents.
Enemy was fucking awesome.Denis Villeneuve did go full David Lynch on this one. His other films Prisoners and Incendies are also woth watching.
He's one of my favourite French Canadian filmmakers out right now. It's a shame he doesn't get more attention than that narcissistic faggot Xavier Dolan. It seems any time you bring gender politics into your films you're magically some master storyteller.
I'm not sure. I watched it once a few years ago and all I think of it now is that the graphic novel was probably better. Definitely not the best person to have a good opinion on the movie.
yeah, that's right up there with Son of the Mask and Both the Alvin and the Chipmunks movies.
I think Prisoners got him the most attention. While Xavier Dolan is running around in Cannes looking like the fag he is.
not god tier (by far), but a Korean horror film about yoga. Had to post because wtf
This was a terrible movie. Predictable, shock-for-shock's-sake, poorly paced, heavy on the exposition, light on the content.
It was like a shitty Scottish version of Fight Club that came out 20 years later.
my instinct has always to call people who say "the matrix" in favourite movie threads plebs, but I just rewatched that movie and... it's kind of a fucking excellent action flick
David Lynch movies.
Oliver Stone movies.
Takashi Miike movies. (for fun)
Stanley Kubrick movies.
Cohen brothers movies.
And of course, Quenting Tarantino movies.
Would take you some time to watch them all and 95% of them are pearls.
The Asian films in my 2 posts are: Fists of Fury (1971), The Chinese Connection (1972), Akira (1988), Crouching Tiger; Hidden Dragon (2000), Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001), Jet Li: Hero (2002)
Jet Li was also in Fearless. Jackie Chan movies are good (Fists of Fury and The Chinese Connection are both Bruce Lee movies.) Jackie Chan is in the new Karate Kid movie with Jaden Smith, but The Karate Kid (1984) is a much better feel-good movie.
You have to watch arguably the best bollywood movie. Its a western style movie with lots of great dialogue and action. Auction is realistic unlike current bollywood movies.
Her was pretty odd, I'd recommend it, but it's not overwhelming.
Inception reeks of "2deep4u". I like it, but I feel it takes itself too seriously
Looper is in a similar situation, but is better.
