Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen

#5281

Post by ianjd » June 30th, 2017, 3:20 pm

La grande illusion (1937) was a great watch; I could definitely see its influence on later WWII movies. I enjoyed watching La regle du jeu a lot more though.

jvv, for you I choose American Movie (1999). It's a great doc for anyone with a passion for movies.

Please choose something I should see next.

klaus78 - La double vie de Veronique (1991); I watched it recently and it's amazing

Stranger Than Paradise - I'm a big fan of Jim Jarmusch and this one is great. It's not my favourite but we can see its style.

klaus78 - Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma (1975) - I really didn't like it when I saw it so maybe your rewatch will make me want to see it again

Hana-bi - A really nice contrast between calmness and violence. Great poetic movie

clemmetarey - I didn't see any of the movies in your list but I choose Tromeo and Juliet because Lloyd Kaufman

La Notte - I'm not really a big fan of Antonioni but I enjoyed it more than L'Avventura or L'Eclisse.

Lásky jedné plavovlásky (1965) for zissou14

3. 1958 Separate Tables
4. 1928 A Girl in Every Port (NEW)

kalus78 picked M (1931) for me. I enjoy the noirs, thrillers, and other movies for which it obviously laid the groundwork, so I really enjoyed seeing this film. Exceptional innovation throughout and compelling atmosphere, even nearly 90 years later. I like taking part in this thread but life gets in the way and I end up not responding for a few months...

zissou14, please check out one of my favourite films, F for Fake (1973).

Please pick one of the many movies I should have already seen.

ianjd I pick Barry Lyndon (1975)
Four Days in July is a dialogue-driven film, and I have to admit I struggle a bit to understand everything due to the accents. 6/10

Cippenham - Oasis

Chimes at Midnight - As an non-english speaker, I'm not that familiar with Shakespeare so I'm naturally not a big fan of Shakespeare adaptation. This movie was masterfully directed by Orson Wells and the battle sequence was so intense

Really happy to hear zissou14 enjoyed F for Fake (1973) and all its wonder.

I watched Barry Lyndon (1975) a few weeks ago but I'm always very slow at getting back on here. It was one of the few Kubrick movies I hadn't seen. It was a lot less sluggish than its reputation (at least among people I've talked to about it). The beautiful composition of each shot, the sets and costumes and lighting... Quite a bit of it was genuinely funny, such as pretty much anything Barry's stepson would say or do. Or the Irish highway robber near the beginning. Loved how it stuck to the feel of an old British novel with its chapters and haughty-accented narrator.

kalus78, watch The Stuff (1985). Trashy and ham-fisted satire, but imaginative with its small sci-fi/horror premise and budget. Great commercials and jingles, if I recall correctly. Particularly recommended if you enjoy bad-good to genuinely good 1980s horror.

Pick any movie I haven't seen.

klaus78 - Night of the Living Dead (1968) because it's october and there's nothing better than a good zombie movie during halloween time

Love Streams- A really interesting movie about relationship between two siblings. Gena Rowlands is amazing as always in a Cassavetes movie

It's been a while since I've stepped in this thread. I finally got around to watching Broken Lullaby, another gem from Lubitsch.

Klaus, I really don't know much about horror, and, none of the films on your list really ring a bell for me, so, I'll just randomly select Goksung for you.

Someone pick something for me that I've yet to see (icm link in signature). Preferably something that'd be off my radar. Just keep it under 2 1/2 hours, please ;)

Nathan Treadway, go with Plein Soleil or Purple Noon (1960) just because it's something in a lot of lists that I've checked and you haven't (plus I like this film a lot).

This is my first time posting in this thread and I wanted to start participating to conquer the movies that have been sitting in my movies to watch file for a VERY long time.

Here are ten to pick from:
1. Quantum of Solace (2008)
2. Star Wars The Force Awakens (2015)
3. While the City Sleeps (1956)
4. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
5. Days of Wine and Roses (1962)
6. The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976)
7. The Naked Spur (1953)

For zissou14 I pick Grass: A Nation's Battle for Life (1925), which I think is a very interesting documentary.

Just finished Purple Noon. Honestly, I really don't know what to say, which is quite often the case.

Klaus, go with I, Daniel Blake. Subtle, it isn't but, still one of the more effective social commentaries.

Somebody just pick something inspired for me. ;) Just keep it under 2 1/2 hours, and preferably something off my radar.

I watched The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966) as Klaus78 requested. Nothing I can say that hasn't already been said about that one. I like every classic Western (American or otherwise) that I see but often put them off--same goes for films noir.

Nathan Treadway, go watch Verhoeven's Starship Troopers (1997) right now. One of the funniest and most disturbing satires I've ever seen.
