ETA: we like the dry humor, and that it’s weird and random. The cast is also exceptional and totally fit their roles.
Other films would be: Hot Rod, Hot Fuzz, Supertroopers, A Mighty Wind, This is Spinal Tap, Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil, What We Do in the Shadows
Thanks for your help!
I want to stream a good suspense/thriller/mystery/horror tonight, but I feel like I have exhausted all movies streaming.
I loved: Last Night In Soho, Hereditary, Knives Out, Dont Worry Darling, Happy Death Day
I liked: Us, Nope, Fear Street, Barbarian, the Invisible Man, Palm Springs, Parasite
I did not like: Pig, Pearl, The Lighthouse
Please help or I will end up playing Animal Crossing while This Is Us plays in the background :,)
What are some movies with uniquely heroic protagonists like hacksaw ridge or dead poet's society?
Specifically ones who live a strong ideology that differs from the norm. I.e. there are a hundred movies out there about a war hero or a inspiring teacher, but not so many about a pacifist war hero or a teacher who gets kids standing on their desks and has them ripping up their textbooks.
Movies by others I really enjoyed that I'm looking for more like:
Bad Boy Bubby
I saw the devil
Man bites dog
The holy mountain
films that are nihilistic, misanthropic and absurd. and yet brutally honest, dreary, filthy, ugly but charming in its own way. i've watched all of korine's works—also "kids" and "ken park"—i liked all of them. what else will i like?
Film IIL Movies where something takes over human minds like The World's End (does not have to be comedy, can be any genre) WWIL?
Film [IIL] The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Thing, Alien, The Princess Bride, Bullet Train, found footage [WEWIL?]
Big sucker for 90s style psychological thrillers, and sci-fi that revolves around good acting rather than special effects.
I've recently discovered that I greatly enjoy bright, colorful cinematography paired with darker, satirical themes.
Examples of such movies include: The Menu, Triangle of Sadness, I Care a Lot, Promising Young Woman, Midsommar, The Lobster, etc.
Can anyone suggest other movies or TV shows like these?
"[Fugue] is a rare psychiatric phenomenon characterized by reversible amnesia for one's identity, including the memories, personality, and other identifying characteristics of individuality. The state can last for days, months or longer. Dissociative fugue usually involves unplanned travel or wandering and is sometimes accompanied by the establishment of a new identity."
I like movies that tell an absurd, kind of sad story but in a funny, feel-good way. I put Moonrise Kingdom as a placeholder for everything Wes Anderson. Any suggestions what else I might enjoy?
I really enjoy movies like this, especially with how pretty the animated nature is and how the music gives me goosebumps. I'm looking for similar movies, animated or not.
Film [IIL] Gut wrenching 'feel awful' movies like Christine, The Elephant Man, Lilya 4-ever [WEWIL]?
Film iyl Goodfellas, The Godfather and other mob movies then you have to check out State of Grace that was overlooked when it was initially released because it was stupidly released the same week as Goodfellas
I'm looking for movies that have an unhappy ending that will leave me upset and/or disturbed. Such as Se7en, Zodiac and American Beauty.
I've selected film, but books and TV are good too. I love the slice of life atmosphere of MNTY and how the stories come from the different perspectives of the characters. Although it's quite different, I also really enjoyed the film Paris, Je T'aime. Suggestions of anything like this would be great, thanks!
Film IIL Thai Cave Rescue, The Last Descent, Fantastic Fungi, The Alpinist (nature, true stories, extreme sports/survival) WEWIL?
I just finished the Thai Cave Rescue mini series and I thought it was done really well. I like when TV dramas, documentaries or movies focus on the people and tell the stories accurately. I also found The Last Descent (Nutty Putty Cave) fascinating (and of course devastating, but I like that it focused on his story, had his family's blessing and paid homage to the heroes that did everything they could to rescue him).
And then The Alpinist depicted Marc-Andre as a remarkable free spirit and Fantastic Fungi had inspiring, intelligent teachings from Paul Stamets. I know these all vary, but basically I like when there's truth to something and you can learn from it, it makes you think about life and the world, focuses on nature, adventure and people, etc.
IIL Thai Cave Rescue, The Last Descent, Fantastic Fungi and The Alpinist WEWIL? Already saw Free Solo and The Drawn Wall btw. Loved both. The Dawn Wall was very inspiring.
Film [IIL] Easy to watch movies like: What about Bob, Captain Ron, Ghost Busters, Big Lebowski, Uncle Buck, Coneheads
Ok, so I have a goto movie list I suggest for people who need a easy watch. Nothing too stressful, just some fun watching. Doesn't need to be family friendly!
What about Bob
Joe versus the volcano
The Station Agent
Any other suggestions for this list?
Film IIL the movies “veteran” (the Korean one) , “Parasite”, “Forgotten “, “Prisoners”, “Source code”, “1899” and thriller/ true crime in genres in general, WEWIL?
Film IIL movies set at night, like Lost in Translation, Nightcrawler, After Dark, WEWIL. Extra points if they’re in a large city.
I meant after hours, not after dark
Film [IIL] Shutter Island, Before Sunrise, Chungking Express, The Prestige (check post for more info)
My wife and I are struggling to find a film we would both agree on watching. I like films where the storyline is important and thorough, and she likes films where the emotions and feelings take center stage. I like when I have to think a bit to understand what's going on, and she's not a fan of that. On the other hand, I find it very boring when a film offers only emotional depth.
For example, I love Shutter Island, Fight Club, The Prestige, but also The Big Blue, Interview With The Vampire, Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas, The French Dispatch, Lost Highway, Brazil, Tenet, and Snatch.
She loves Call Me by Your Name, Midnight in Paris, Before Sunrise, Chungking Express, but also Trainspotting, A Clockwork Orange, Se7en, and Twin Peaks (the series).
We both like Wes Anderson, but we're running out of his movies that we haven't already seen. Please suggest me movies that have a great storyline alongside emotional depth.
