Movies that made you sit there and think for a long time after the credits rolled.
>pic very related
Shit... I watched this movie whilst getting stoned. I never thought so hard in my life. I ended up messaging tons of friends and just discussing the movie. There's nothing like that movie.
Fucking Revolver. Had to watch it like 3 times just to understand the ending
Maybe not depression, but everybody had kind of weird issues, which is what made it a great movie, because everybody really does have weird issues, and yet we're all lovable and deserving of love.
Not in the same way as, "Her," but, "The Prestige"
I can easily see how this movie just isn't for everybody, but I adored it
Dude, before seeing the movie, I read about him falling in love with his operating system and I thought it sounded like the dumbest premise for a movie ever, but it's not at all taken in the dumb direction you'd be right to expect. It's done so fucking well, they don't insult you with any bullshit at any point, it's nothing but quality film-making.
A well written movie giving some insight on how society might be in our near future. Fight scenes are unreal and badass.
easily a 10/10 for me.
and it has Mr dub man
It is. A fucking retarded waste of time. I can't believe I sat through the whole thing.
Wait a minute, maybe I get it now.
Are we supposed to appreciate the fact that, though we go into it thinking the premise is ridiculous, it still manages to compel the audience as if it were a real relationship all the same? Thus drawing a parallel between Wahkeen and the audience?
If so, it's still retarded. The "relationship" wasn't believable for even a second and Toy Story 3 did it better.
>Obviously only one person of earth disagrees with me.
I never said anything to you before. If you like explosions, great. It's going to keep you from enjoying so many great movies, though.
>insight on how society might be in our near future
This movie made me think too...about how fucked up Jauquin Phoenix is lol
Just cause you're a nigger and you can't, doesn't mean you shouldn't try to learn again. I know you were molested as a child, but you're an adult now, it won't be like that this time. Now put on your pinwheel hat and back to kindergarden with you lil' buddy!
>The "relationship" wasn't believable
You are supposed to feel uncomfortable about it. Throughout the film, she seems too good for him, which makes you doubt what she claims to feel for him is real. At the end you come to see that while she felt something very different than what humans are capable of feeling, what she felt was still very real. She was never a human, but she was a person, and she did love him in her way, and he lover her in his. I feel so sorry for people that didn't see this movie with the right mindset and maybe just maturity level, because it's going to be so long before another movie comes along as good as it.
>nigger have you seen it?
yeah i saw it, it was a horrible action movie that tried to horribly rip off brave new world. nothing original with horrible delivery. 4/10
>stick to your finding nemo then
Johnny: [walks into flower shop] Hi.
Flower Shop Clerk: Can I help you?
Johnny: Yeah, can I have a dozen red roses, please?
Flower Shop Clerk: Oh, hi, Johnny. I didn't know it was you.
[grabs bouquet of roses]
Flower Shop Clerk: Here you go.
Johnny: That's me. How much is it?
Flower Shop Clerk: It'll be eighteen dollars.
Johnny: [hands over cash] Here you go. Keep the change.
[grabs flowers and pats dog on the counter]
Johnny: Hi, doggy.
Flower Shop Clerk: You're my favorite customer.
Johnny: Thanks a lot. Bye!
Flower Shop Clerk: Buh-bye!
This fucking movie man...a masterpiece ad a trip
Also this... made me "wut" for days until I had to google what the actual fuck happened.
>I know you were molested as a child, but you're an adult now
why watch a thrilling action scene when i can have it descriped to me on paper. lel its ok go be entertained by books grandpa
It was okay... An excellent sci-fi movie but only a par movie in every other way. I feel like it won't be remembered in five years, which sucks, because the message to studios will be, "audiences don't want realism, they want space robots."
I adored the loyalty they had toward hard science, and they earned the wiggle-room they needed to take the audience into the unknown, but the story just didn't have enough teeth to really do it for me. Despite how good Matthew McConaughey was in this, I can't help but think that another actor could've done it better.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
will probably get shit for this but it definitely made me think of the possibilities
But a computer can't feel anon. I'm not trying to be dismissive, I'd like to know where you're coming from with this, but as of right now I'm not buying it, just like the film couldn't sell me on itself.
I loved it... and I mean loved it..! I'm not even a Nolan fan boy, hated inception but this movie just blew me away! It's weird, all the movies I love get really polarizing views.
>It was bad, because it just was and I didn't like it.
Fucking say what you didn't like about it or you just sound 5 years old. You cannot deny they did an excellent job of weaving many time periods together without the audience ever losing track of where they were. Sometimes the way people talked was annoying, sometimes the makeup was just okay, but sometimes it was fucking stellar. Best set and costume design I've maybe ever seen. What the hell was your problem with it?
The part where Keisha tells Miss Kitty to, "Suck it like you're HUNGRY!"
That just blew my mind... and my load
Everybody's got to learn sometime
This right here, OP.
>be a couple years back
>didn't know what I wanted to do with my life
>it's such a relaxing film
>gave me a lot of time to think and enjoy the scenery.
Now I'm a head chef.
compiled a list of movies mentioned to watch. feel free to save for future reference or add a few more.
Bridge to tarrabithia
Eternal spotlight of the spotless mind
No because its GAY GAY GAY!
and so are you, gay.
>momento (shit movie)
>return of the jedi
I surfed the thread for the sole reason of shitting on anyone who dared to recommend that piece of shit. Setting out to make a movie - as the director has admitted - to confuse viewers and be as unnecessarily complex as possible... no thanks.
>a computer can't feel
But the very premise of the movie is that a computer *can.* To get hung up on a premise of a movie is like getting hung up on the very concept of fiction. It's like disliking Toy Story because toys don't really come to life.
If they did it in a very unconvincing way, maybe you'd still have an argument, but they did it in an incredibly authentic and seamless way. I can't imagine the mind that watches that movie and can't get into it because, "lol, computers aren't alive!"
There Will Be Blood
Meet Joe Black
No Country for Old Men
The Lincoln Lawyer
A Beautiful Mind
City of God
Wall Street Money Never Sleeps
I really liked this one and the way they described current human beings as stupid shits afraid of change.
Fracture is underrated. Not the best ending for a mostly well-written movie, but overall, solid as shit.
>Literally one of the shittiest films and blatant ripoff of a shitty book by a shitty author who wrote a story about some privilaged spoiled brat who fantasized about being a killer and never did a god damn thing but whine throughout the entirety of the story.
So much deluded self aggrandizement it makes me want to hurl.
I have to agree. I was waiting for the big reveal, and it never came. I had this huge conspiracy worked up inside my head, that the world had been taken over by aliens, and it was affecting everyone's perception, that no one was who they thought they were, it was a big mass delusion to keep everybody working, and these two identical people meeting was the only piece of evidence that something wasn't right. I had hopes that this small-but-undeniable incongruity would be the thread that unraveled the deception, but instead just nothing happened. So dissapointed.
Sex with Seka but it has to be the collector version...man when the titles rolled I was spent...
>gives some insight on how society may be in our future
>society may be in our future
It isn't difficult to believe. I'm the one saying is isn't difficult to believe. It's the person I'm responding to saying he couldn't get into it because of the premise, which is an extremely silly problem to have with a fiction movie.
After every Kubrick movie I sat there 40 minutes after the movie was over wondering why do I keep watching these shitty movies. Also Donnie Darko was a shitty movie that only pretentious tards enjoy
Exactly zero. As for what I would've enjoyed... something less masturbatory than Nymphomaniac.
In theory, this could've been a great film. The concept is fantastic, the ambition is as ballsy as I've seen, but... the acting is horseshit, the pacing provides no engagement, the director is obviously an amateur, and the writing is more in love with the idea of the movie than how to translate it on-screen.
Like I said, creating a film with the intent of confusing people, not allowing them to coherently understand the narrative, is not good film-making.
Watch it again after you've graduated high school and entered your second year of college, or your third year of being a fry cook and then tell us all how great it is again.
Shitty film about a fucking retard.
All he needed to do was walk a fuckingmile north and he could catch a tram into town.
Also Kristen Stewart as narrator was a bloody stupid move.
Clearly you missed the actual meaning of the ending, and how utterly mind blowing the movie was. Sorry it didn't turn out to be an alien film with an obvious ending. There weren't even any aliens anyway, but i guess the spider metaphors went right over you head.
Agree there is a massive flaw to that movie though,dont give a fuck if i ruin it for people because im an asshole. He cant be tried again for the crime as he has been cleared of it. what he does afterwards isnt a crime
I agree. I feel like it's another movie where people get hung up on whether or not the events of the movie happened, in-universe, instead of recognizing that the message of the movie isn't dependent on it. I'm a believer the message was that it was a time where everyone was so interchangeable and self-absorbed you could be insane or a killer and no one would notice really notice. No one's actions were connected with the consequences of their actions, and everybody was chasing an image, not a reality.
well your response was well thought out so i'll agree to disagree with you. you're right though, it definitely could have used more explosions to set the pace and really engage the viewer. do you have a twitter i can follow?
I recommend this one. Made my cry with a sad kind of happiness. watch it alone and in the dark. with a big cup of hot chocolate.
This one was pretty deep.
I really really liked this movie, I bet u do too, /b/, because there are aspies and jews on it.
Donnie Darko is complete grunge hipster shit. But Kubrick made some of the best movies ever made, including Barry Lyndon and 2001. Eyes wide Shut and Full Metal Jacket were weak.
Kubrick was a master
That characteristic pause his characters do. Where they are processing/in disbelief at what they are seeing, that always got me.
Cronennerg did something similar in his work.
The thing about Kubrick is he's showing us additional info in his films. Things we aren't supposed to know.
This film will make people think... think and see.
not sure what you mean bu in-universe but i agree mostly.
Bale portrays the charater so well it makes it so real. You can almost fucking feel the greed and jealousy bleeding through the screen. Dude is ready to blow his stack over high quality business cards ffs, lol
The movie had a budget of $4,000.
Not even shitting you.
Now I'll admit, it had real problems. The acting wasn't stellar. But it wasn't awful, either. The plot is a little bit guys-in-a-box, no pun intended, and there is no other relationship complicating the one between the two protagonists. But all in all, a very passable, engaging movie about the way such power would warp relationships and people. Really well-written and well edited, and an absolute miracle at $4,000.
Were pirates capable of abstract thinking?
I'm wondering whether they were capable of generalizing practical experiences and recognizing trends based on those experiences. For example, were they able to understand concepts such as corrrrrelation, even at a very basic and primitive level? I'm not talking about the average pirate, I'm wondering if any pirate ever was able to do this. Evidence confirming your standpoint is very welcome. Arrr!
It's an amazing film about society and how one guy had the balls to do what a lot would love to do with all the lessons he learnt along the way. That soundtrack too fucking amazing, if all you took from this film was this dudes dumb he should have walked north and the narrator was shit, I feel sorry for you.
I'm getting my cow slippers and big fluffy pink robe and my kitty, Mister Cuddels and going to watch it right now!
Well for one thing, there aren't two identical people, they are the same person. Two different sides of himself who hated themselves and wanted to be more like the other personality. Hence many of the actions they each undertook. Second major thing being the spider metaphors. In general the spider's represented women, and how men are "caught in their webs". Though it gets deeper than that, and it would require a pretty damn long post to address it all.
^ This guy does a pretty good analysis imo
It made me rage so hard and feel.
I was so fucking angry at how things were going so bad for the characters I had tears rolling down my cheeks.
In a world replete with greed, betrayal, sexual intrigue and rivalry, "Marco Polo" is based on the famed explorer's adventures in Kublai Khan's court in 13th century China.
they're pretty much all out now on torrent sites.
ITT no one supporting the one true classic, 2001: A Space Odyssey
I thought it was $7,000, but hell, not much of a difference.
I'm going to have to disagree on the writing part though. To me, the strengths of the writing were meant for the written word instead of the screen. Hand me a paper dissecting the topics and I'll gladly read it; on-screen, it lacked consistency.
That said, cool response, not calling me a niggerfaggot. Yet.
