Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen

Post by zissou14 » November 10th, 2017, 4:01 pm

ianjd - Du rififi chez les hommes (1955); one of the greatest french cop and robbers movie

Grass: A Nation's Battle for Life (1925) - A great documentary about the migration of a persian tribe and their livestock across mountains and river. It's really well made and impressive for a 1925 movie.

You can pick any movie I didn't see

Just finished Starship Troopers. . I needed a little motivation to watch this one. And, yeah, I'm not really too sure what to think of this one. I seem to get bored with these loud, bombastic films anymore, and this one fit the bill, even if there's some underlying theme that I really didn't get.

Zissou14, fancy meeting you again. ;) This time, you get The Slender Thread. I really hope you enjoy!

Somebody go ahead and pick something for me. Just please keep it under 2 1/2 hours. Thanks!

klaus78, go for Tangerine (2015), I really liked that movie but I know not everybody will.

2. Star Wars The Force Awakens (2015)
3. The Prestige (2006)
4. Artificial Intelligence (2001)

7. The Naked Spur (1953)

I'm sad you feel that way about ST--it's definitely an anti-fascist and anti-violence film. The plastic soap opera action stars (the casting and lighting is perfect for this aspect) should be the villains (and are the villains) but because Verhoeven is delivering an American action film they are the vapid and murderous heroes defending a military dystopia. But to each their own! :cheers:

It's all good. ;) I didn't hate it, by any means. :cheers:

I've finished The Story of Qiu Ju. Thank you for that one, Klaus78, now I get to pick one for you.

Film socialisme, it is, even though I haven't seen it, the few I've seen on your list I didn't think was anything special.

Somebody can pick something for me. ;) Just keep it under 2 1/2 hours, please!

klaus78, I haven't seen any of the films on your list so I'll randomly choose American Honey (2016).

I watched La La Land (2016). I think this movie is super overrated. It's not really bad, it's just not as crazy good as everyone says. A lot of it comes across as pretentious and trying too hard, and forced. I'm not going to say I hated it, because I didn't, but I don't think it deserves nearly as much praise as it gets.

Choose from these:
1. Quantum of Solace (2008)
2. Star Wars The Force Awakens (2015)
3. The Prestige (2006)
4. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
5. Days of Wine and Roses (1962)
6. The Longest Day (1962)
7. 12 Monkeys (1995)
8. The Nuns Story (1959)
9. Sergeant York (1941)
10. The Barefoot Contessa (1954)

I watched Easy Living, was impressed (but not overly so with it), felt similarly towards a lot of other Preston Sturges scripted films.

sacmersault, you have 2 AMAZING films in that list, 1 & 6. I'll have to go with the marginally better but more divisive Post Tenebras Lux.

Please recommend me anything I haven't seen.

fori: I watched Post Tenebras Lux. I had really high expectations and boy was it divisive. I really disliked it. Carlos Reygadas seemed not know where to go; it was a bit ADD most of the times. It had gratuitous sex, animal abuse, nonsensical acts, three different narratives that were hardly cohesive. In some weird way, I guess he was trying to do an us vs them narrative about culture here in Mexico, but it was too self-indulgent. The one thing I like about his movies is the photography, but I really disliked his "experimental" photography. The script was horrendous, especially the dialogues. The director really seems to be out of touch with regular people. The fighting scenes between the main characters were unbelievably unreal, the conversations between the low-income characters was non-believable. The only dialogues that made any sense in the real world were the ones with the rich family and that makes it evident that he's out of touch with the average Mexican. Also, the actors were not good at all. In others, divisive it is, yet I seem to fall into the dislike section. It had been on my lists since before it came out so thanks, at least I saw it. I was surprised though, because I loved Stellet Licht.

Nathan Treadway: I choose Dealer (2004) by Benedek Fliegauf

Here's my list:
1. I am not Madame Bovary (2016)
2. It's only the End of the World (2016)
3. Lady Macbeth (2016)
4. Tom of Finland (2017)
5. Manifesto (2015)
6. George Washington (2000)
7. Mother of George (2013)
8. Red Road (2006)
9. Nostalgia for the Light (2010)
10. The Ornithologist (2016)

Loved La chambre verte, really powerful and stylistically nice film.

sacmersault: sorry to hear that, I'll try to regain your favour by recommending the other one in the list I loved: I Am Not Madame Bovary.

Please choose me anything I have not seen.

Cría cuervos was a powerful movie with great metaphor on the Franco regime in Spain. Ana Torrent must be the greatest child actress ever with this performance and in El espíritu de la colmena.

fori for you I choose This Must Be the Place (2011) one of my favourite movie of the last ten years. I hope you'll enjoy it

You can choose any movie I need to see

klaus78, again I haven't seen any of the films on your list so I'm going with Aquarius (2016).

The Barefoot Contessa (1954) for you mondovertigo
Separate Tables had two main stories, the one involving David Niven interested me a bit more, the other romance not so much. The characters were well written. 5/10

Fun fact: David Niven won an oscar for best actor in a leading role despise being on screen for 15 minutes and 38 seconds (15% of the running time), the shortest perf to have won that award so far.

3. 2002 About Schmidt (NEW)

clemmetarey, go with The Blue Dahlia (1946).

I watched The Barefoot Contessa (1954), which I unfortunately didn't really care for. I feel like this movie was just too long and dragged on a lot. The premise is interesting and there were parts that I enjoyed, but after awhile I just wanted it to be over.

Choose for me:
1. Quantum of Solace (2008)
2. Star Wars The Force Awakens (2015)
3. The Prestige (2006)
4. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
5. Days of Wine and Roses (1962)
6. The Longest Day (1962)
7. Father of the Bride (1950)
8. The Nuns Story (1959)
9. Sergeant York (1941)

zissou14, thanks for making me watch Rififi (1955). Had a blast. Interesting that it was a McCarthy-era blacklisted American director that made a French noir.

mondovertigo, please don't waste your time with Quantum of Solace. I watched Atomic Blonde the other day, it was a decent (not great) female Bond movie set in 1980s Berlin. Definitely a better option over QoS.

Anyway, from your list: Artificial Intelligence (2001). I got to see the Kubrick exhibit when it was in town and seeing his unfinished films section, which included a bunch of drawings and research for AI, was fascinating. (Other main films were his white whale Napoleon movie project and his holocaust movie). AI can be tonally strange sometimes, maybe reflecting its transition from Kubrick to Spielberg. The finished film seems to be divisive, so I'm interested to read what you think of it.

Just go to my profile. There's so many movies I should have already seen.

klaus78, I'm choosing randomly for you Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence (1983).

I watched both Artificial Intelligence: AI (2001) AND Quantum of Solace (2008). AI was very good, I'm surprised it took me so long to watch it. I'm very interested in AI themes in films and this film had an interesting emotional view on it. The special effects were really good and overall the movie was quite a journey (a good one). As for QoS, I liked it. It wasn't the best Bond film by far but it definitely wasn't the worst either. I was going to watch this film regardless of the warning against it (it is an official check after all), and the warning was a bit of a push to just watch the damn thing already.

Choose from:
1. The Blair Witch Project (1999)
2. Star Wars The Force Awakens (2015)
3. The Prestige (2006)
4. The Little Foxes (1941)
5. Days of Wine and Roses (1962)
6. The Diamond Arm (1968)
7. Father of the Bride (1950)
8. The Nuns Story (1959)
9. Sergeant York (1941)
10. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)

mondovertigo - The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007) because it's one of the most beautiful cinematography of the last years.

I watched Kanal a war movie about Polish resistance warriors during WW2 that tried to escape Germans by using sewers. I think it's the most clostrophobic war movie that I ever saw. There is a great ternsion during the movie from the begininng until the very end.

You can choose any movie I need to see

Hi Steve, it's me again. I choose Sans soleil for you. I rewatched it just now and put it into my top 10.

I watched Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, which gains me bronze on the Cahiers du Cinéma list, at least until the new list releases. 7/10

Pick any movie I should have already seen. (My signature links to my profile.)

klaus78, for you I choose Funny Girl (1968).

I watched The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007), and I really, really liked it. The film was very beautiful and didn't feel long at all (I'm usually not great with long films). I'd also like to comment on how impressed I was with Casey Affleck.

Choose from:
1. The Blair Witch Project (1999)
2. Star Wars The Force Awakens (2015)
3. The Prestige (2006)
4. The Little Foxes (1941)
5. Days of Wine and Roses (1962)
6. The Diamond Arm (1968)
7. Father of the Bride (1950)
8. The Nuns Story (1959)
9. Sergeant York (1941)
10. Army of Shadows (1969)

Mondo I recommend you Army of Shadows from one of the best french director: Melville

Sans Soleil was a very interesting movie but it didn't fascinate me like it did for a lot of people. I think this movie will need more than one watch for me to really be submurged in it.

You can choose any movie I need to see

zissou14, try out Limelight (1952).

I watched Army of Shadows (1969). I had a really hard time following along at first but once I really understood (from an hour in and on) I really liked it. I especially love the music.

Choose from these (mixed them up):
1. Castle in the Sky (1986)
2. Days of Wine and Roses (1962)
3. Fitzcarraldo (1982)
4. Hiroshima, mon amour (1959)
5. I Remember Mama (1948)
6. Force of Evil (1948)
7. Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)
8. Kitty Foyle (1940)
9. The Ladykillers (1955)
10. The Killing Fields (1984)

For mondovertigo, I choose Fitzcarraldo, by far the best film there.

I finally watched This Must Be the Place, and immediately regretted putting it off for so long... a highly entertaining and beautiful film, and I even liked Sean Penn in it, an actor who I have rarely enjoyed.

Please recommend me anything you liked that I may have missed.

fori I choose for you The Angels' Share not the best Ken Loach but I really enjoyed it

Limelight- What a delight to see Keaton and Chaplin together in the same scene. Overall it's a great movie.

clemmetarey - Dark Waters

Krótki film o zabijaniu (1988) - I already saw it when I watched The Dekalog. I don't think the 20 minutes add something more to the story but it's still a very good movie.
