Movies you thought were really cool

Recommended Posts

Premiere    61

I decided to make this thread after watching the film "About Time." I thought it was absolutely brilliant and a beautiful picture. I don't really want to give anything away but I will say that I strongly recommend it.

 

This got me thinking; what kinds of movies do the Avolition forum members really enjoy watching? Apologies if there's already a thread for this, I searched but couldn't find any.

 

What movies do the Avolition forum-goers like? What really activates your almonds?

Don't have time to explain but you won't regret watching any of the following:

 

Interstellar

 

Jagten

 

Inglorious Basterds

 

The Prestige

 

Dark Knight trilogy

 

The Shawshank Redemption

 

500 Days of Summer

 

Goodfellas

 

Whiplash

 

Django Unchained

 

Oldboy

 

and one I just watched last night that's a very interesting short watch, Coherence

 

Pretty much can't go wrong with Nolan or Tarantino films. Also films where the music is done by Hans Zimmer, those are usually great.

Synecdoche, New York.

 

A beautiful, depressing, and surreal movie about life, death, and time. Also, the soundtrack is amazing.

These are some of the greatest movies ever made.

Your movie got me thinking of one of my favorites, "In time".

One of my all time favourites is Behind Enemy Lines staring Owen Wilson.

 

It's great if you suspend your disbelief a little and is one of the better things Wilson has been in. Massively underrated imo.

I do remember someone telling me about that movie and saying that it was really really good. I'm gonna have to take a look at it one day.

Might be an unpopular opinion, but Captain America: Civil War. Maybe I'm just a Marvel fanboy.

I really like A Clockwork Orange, especially the soundtrack, and all of the Lord of the Rings movies.

No Country For Old Men and The Usual Suspects are both fantastic films that I recommend everyone watch.

Enemy At The Gates... fucking awesome WWII movie

Silent Hill... it deviated from the video game... then threw Pyramid Head in for fan service, still TONS better than the abortion of a sequel. (Can we forget SH Revelations happened?)

Enter The Void (Be prepared for the weird and captivating here)

Drive

In Time (Who knew? Justin Timberlake was pretty good in this)

John Wick

Gangster Squad (pretty sweet)

Talvisota (A.K.A. The Winter War, when the Soviets invaded Finland during WWII)

The Crow (Cant rain all the time...)

 

ALSO... Off topic but kind of relevant. Anybody who likes The Shawshank Redemption? There is a music event called "Ink In The Clink" Its a 3 day music festival held at Mansfield Prison. Bands, over 80 tattoo artists and other stuff like oddity vendors and such. Happens July 14th - 16th

John Wick was the first movie that I saw in a long time where I went "Damn, this movie is amazing." Then again, show me Keanu Reeves killing people and I'll basically throw money at it. The sequel was good, but while most people think it was better, I think it was slightly worse. Still pretty good though.

I'll recommend Dredd (Karl Urban, not Stallone) to any self-loving action movie fan, and Hardcore Henry was not only a cool concept with the first person camera angles, but the practical effects were stellar and the humor was well-paced.

THE FIFTH ELEMENT.

TECHNO OPERA. WEIRD OVERALLS. BRUCE WILLIS.

But seriously, that movie changed my life, all I wanted to do for a week was kick ass and hang out with Chris Tucker.

I recently watched Wonder Woman and I thoroughly enjoyed it from a feminist point of view and from a philosophical point of view to be quite honest. Everything about that move captured me, from the soundtrack to the design choices to the lighting--agh! It was so good. Also Gal Gadot can TAKE me places, jfc, she is such a strong woman. I have a thing for strong women y'know. But it definitely made me want to talk philosophy with anyone who would listen for like, two days straight and I think every one got tired of my shit real fast lololol.

This is the best and most important thing to come out of John Wick.

Truth be told. I like how in the sequel though they keep close ties to the first movie while actually advancing both the plot and the characters. It's actually a consistent universe rather than just an incoherent shitpile.

Baby Driver, in my opinion, was a great movie. Anybody else seen it and want to discuss it?

I don't really watch movies. Infact, I'd go as far as to say I've only seen like, maybe a handful of films in my entire life. It's something I'm working on changing. I have written down a shit ton of movies I heard were good, and I'm pretty sure if I showed the list to someone they'd go "what the fuck you are so uncultured how could you have not seen x or y?"

Anyways, yesterday I watched Robocop 1 for the first time, and it was fucking awesome.

The satire in the film was fucking on the nose, and it's amazing how relevant it is even today. I fucking love how nonchalantly the news anchors talk about nuclear war on the horizon, and then go and talk about how the state of Detroit is in a crisis, all just cheery as fuck.

Definitely gonna watch more Paul Veerhoven movies in the future.
