Hi clemmetarey it's me again, I choose The Strong Man (1926) for you

Aoi Haru - Great movie about teenagers in a very violent and disturbing high school. It's a very good looking movie with a great soundtrack.

You can choose any movie I need to see

For zissou14 I pick Limite (1931).

I finally saw Ordet (1955) - It's no surprise this is based on a play, because acting and dialogue are rather stagey. - 7.5/10

Just pick a movie I should already have seen.

clemmetarey, check out About Schmidt (2002). It's worth seeing Payne's filmography.

klaus78 got me to finally watch Keaton's The General (1926). It was a wonderful experience. His stunt work alone in that film is outstanding.

For zissou14 I pick Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss (1982).

I watched L'age d'or. Has some interesting stuff going on, but is too random for me.

Just pick a movie I should already have seen.

For jvv I choose Dancer in the Dark

Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss A very interesting story about a washed up actress addicted to opiates and a sport journalist who is falling in love with her. It has a very old Holywood vibe which really fits the story. Veronika Voss reminded me a lot Norma Desmond.

clemmetarey, check out Enemy of the State (1998). I remember absolutely loving it when I was a kid... It probably won't hold up, but there's nothing wrong with a successful action movie.

zissou14 got me to watch The Red Shoes (1948). The only other Archers movie I've seen is Black Narcissus (1947). This one was more emotional and interesting to me. I actually came to care about the characters--though probably not as much as I would have liked. Like BN, I got the most out of their shots showcasing Technicolor and other fun visual effects (especially during the famous dance sequence). Also the closing, brief dance sequence was really haunting and sad.

Check my profile and choose a movie, thanks!

Die Bergkatze for clemmetary.

I watched Dancer in the Dark. I know it fits with the theme, but I disliked the drab colour scheme of the movie. 7/10

clemmetarey I choose Gone Girl for you

Trans-Europ-Express (1966)- I don't know what to think of this movie. I didn't like nor did I hate it. Yes the cinematography was beautiful but I wasn't appealed by it.

Whiplash for you, clemmetarey! (and to be honest, haven't seen much of those movies either).

My 10 most voted IMDb movies i haven't seen.
1. Pulp Fiction (1994)
2. The Godfather (1973)
3. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
4. The Godfather Part II (1974)
5. Léon (1994)
6. The Usual Suspects (1995)
7. Braveheart (1995)
8. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
9. Reservoir Dogs (1991)
10. Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

And Deadpool is 11th.

Would have to watch the entire Batman trilogy of Nolan again, if i got TDKR recommended (because i simply forgot everything from TDK and BB is four years ago i've seen it).

Lakigigar - The Godfather for you because it's a masterpiece (I would have choose part II but you need to see the first one before)

Der siebente Kontinent (1989) - Very interesting movie. You can the themes that Haneke will explore during his career. I personally prefer his later work (Amour, Cache) but this was really good. Nobody can make you feel as uncomfortable as Haneke can do.

I watched Un condamné à mort s'est échappé (1956) many weeks ago but never got around to posting here. I remember enjoying it, but nothing really catching me. Maybe I should have tried to give it more context. I'll have to revisit the director to get a second take.

zissou14, check out After Hours (1985). An unusual comic outing for the filmmaker. One of my favourites, purely for its singularity.

Check my profile and rectify its glaring omissions!

For me, the wonderful thing about A Man Escaped is the way Bresson puts you into the prisoner's shoes, so to speak, and focus on all the little details he does to formulate the escape plan. The framing, editing, and perfect use of Foley effects really brings that depth out for me. Another one that works well in that regard is Le trou.

Watched Höstsonaten (1978). Great acting, especially by Ingrid Bergman. Movie does feel a lot like a stage play though. - 8/10

For ianjd I choose Le salaire de la peur (1953).

Just pick a movie I should already have seen.

jvv- The Killing of a Chinese Bookie

After Hours - What a fun ride. The first 30 minutes I wasn't sure but after that it was pure entertainment. It's really different from the rest of his filmography (Scorsese) but it's a great movie

Una giornata particolare (1977) for you zissou14
I've seen Whiplash, it's a well made film with a original subject. But the story isn't original at all, which makes it very predictable, and unsuspenseful. 5/10

1. Interstellar (2014)
2. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
3. Deadpool (2016)
4. Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) (NEW)
5. Iron Man 2 (2010)
6. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
7. The Imitation Game (2014)
8. Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
9. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)
10. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

Grave for you...

You recommended me The Godfather part II... Wel i've seen the first part, and to be honest... I actually didn't like it that much, so i'm skipping the second until i give The Godfather another try (which i will inevitably do). Maybe this is one of the movies that just need a second view in order to be appreciated.

In the meantime i've also seen The Dark Knight Rises (and rewatched The Dark Knight and Batman Begins) and seen Pulp Fiction for the first time. I liked The Dark Knight more when I rewatched it, and I really liked Pulp Fiction as well.

A top 20 movies most viewed from IMDb that i haven't seen yet (excluding The Godfather part II - reasons stated above, and movies from Star Wars Universum, MCU/DC, AvP, Bond, Tolkien, Star Trek, Hunger Games, Bourne and X-Men Universe, because i prefer to watch on other times, because i need to be sure i have more time available for them as i want to watch those movies on a relatively short time all together from a certain franchise, and because i'm not interested in Star Trek)

1. The Usual Suspects (1995)
2. Braveheart (1995)
3. Léon (1994)
4. Reservoir Dogs (1992)
5. Sin City (2005)
6. 300 (2006)
7. Snatch (2000)
8. Die Hard (1988) -> would prefer to see this during Christmas period
9. Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) -> not sure if i can see this as a stand-alone or not, but i'm not interested in seeing the original Mad Max trilogy (yet).
10. Gran Torino (2008)
11. The Big Lebowski (1988)
12. Scarface (1983)
13. Silver Lining Playbooks (2012)
14. Kill Bill vol. 2 (2004) -> if this was recommended i would rewatch vol. 1
15. The Pianist (2002)
16. The King's Speech (2010)
17. How To Train Your Dragon (2010) -> i would probably watch the sequences as well, if this was recommended
18. The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
19. Sherlock Holmes (2009) -> i would probably watch the sequence as well, if this was recommended
20. Apocalypse Now (1978)

- Some are on my yet to watch list.

Surprised Silver Linings Playbooks and The King's Speech have so many votes on IMDb.

I'm going to jump back in. I have no idea what the last film that was recommended to me, as it's been a while, and I'm not sure how to see the posts I made in this thread without going through it. I apologize to whoever last "assigned" me a film, but, it's been quite a while (6+ months ago..)

Anyhow, Ivan0716, go with Le souffle au coeur. Not Malle's best, but, still..

Someone can pick something for me. ;) I promise to watch it fairly soon, as I don't really have anything lined up for the moment.

Hi Nathan nice to see you back. For you I recommand Holy Motors

I watched Grave aka Raw. Wow what a disturbing but really good movie. It's a good combination of coming-of-age movie and horror/gore.

:cheers: Just watched Holy Motors, It was fine, but, probably one that's not going to stick out for me, although it did have some interesting points.

Also, I found the last film that was recommended to me, Dealer. Sorry sacmersault for not getting to it, but, I just finished it. Rather long and slow, and quite depressing. Overall, great stuff, and one I can recommend. This one will stick around for a while. Damn. Thank you guys for the recommendations!

zissou14, you get Dawson City: Frozen Time. (Also, submit a 500<400 list and put Slender Thread on it! It needs your help!)

Someone pick one for me. :)

Nathan Treadway, Respire for you (curious if you would like it), and since you saw 10 times as many movies as i do...

I've seen both Moonrise Kingdom (6/10) and The Grand Budapest Hotel (7/10) in the last two weeks, which were both my first and second Wes Anderson movie i've seen. The Grand Budapest Hotel was good, but probably not entirely what i'm looking for in a movie. I hated the introduction part also, but cinematography and music were absolutely excellent. I'm not really a fan of an absurd storyline development like that and it's also kinda complicated, but it was okay. I liked the chase scenes most, because than the cinematography and the music were at it's best and combined... It created a rhythmic composition that i really enjoyed, and of course his cinematography / colours in other scenes is also good. 7/10

I hope it didn't intimidate you too much, there's people on here who have seen way more than I have. :) Respire was quite good. Although the catalyst seemed petty for the consequence. Well made, well paced, and very engaging.

While there's plenty to choose from, I'm going to give you The Slender Thread. Hopefully you like it well enough to include it on your 500<400 list. ;) (I'm trying...) If you need help, message me.

As promised, I did watch Wise Blood. I didn't have too high of expectations of it, based off the synopsis, but, knowing it was in capable hands, and the lists that it was on, should've provided me with some hope. Turned out it was alright. I love the satirical tone it took, even at the expence of Christianity. Thank you, fori!

Hellzapoppin' (1941) is quite charming (and short) and I've yet to find someone who dislikes it.


Please choose:

The Fog (1980)
Night of the Demon (1957)
El Castillo De La Pureza (1973)
El crimen del padre Amaro (2002)
Stellet Licht (2007)
The Return of the Living Dead (1985)
The New World (2005)

Otherwise anything:
- Mexican
- Latin-American on 5+ lists
- 1990-2018 on They Shoot Zombies
This is the voice of world control.

Indeed, Hellzapoppin' was quite a bit of fun! It's one I've been meaning to get to for a while now, just hadn't gotten around to it. So, thanks!

For you, go with El cirmen del padre Amaro.

Rio Bravo for you, cats.


I watched El crimen del Padre Amaro. After a slow first act, the story engages you with unexpected turns for their mostly unlikable but very human characters. 6/10


Please choose:

El Callejón de los Milagros (1995)
El castillo de la pureza (1973)
Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)
Good Time (2017)
Starman (1984)
Night of the Demon (1957)
Stellet Licht (2007)
The Lords of Salem (2012)
The Return of the Living Dead (1985)
The New World (2005)

Otherwise anything:
- Mexican
- Latin-American on 5+ lists
- Horror, especially slashers or in TSZDT.
This is the voice of world control.
