Let's post our favourite movie of all time or a great movie you recently watched.

I'll start.

My favourite movie is Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove. The movie is amazing, very funny while maintaining the seriousness of the topic. [spoiler]The Coca-Cola part is fantastic[/spoiler].

Another movie that also really like is Persepolis (yeah, I'm reposting from the .tokyo thread). It's an animation film that tells the story of the author during and after the Islamic revolution. The art is quite unique and the main character is lovely!


File: 1466570715221.jpg (31.1 KB, 295x418, Falling_Down_(1993_film)_p….jpg)

My favorite movie would have to be Falling Down. It's about an ordinary middle-aged guy who has an especially bad day where everything goes wrong for him, and over the course of the day he breaks and becomes an increasingly dark and violent anti-hero before he even realizes it. I've rewatched it a lot of times but keep noticing new things; no shots are wasted.

I like "Waterworld" really much. The actors do a great job altogether while the movie features a melancholic post-apocalyptic setting, cheesy action, funny villains and even some character development.


File: 1466818786668.jpg (51.69 KB, 400x344, im-fine.jpg)

Battle Royal is, for me at least, a classic. The mix of gore, humor, and well-written characters makes this a very fun experience. I would highly recommend this to everyone, as long as you don't have a weak stomach…

What are you doing?


File: 1466856106588.jpg (66.7 KB, 520x777, ashes-of-time-redux-movie-….jpg)

I've recently watched Ashes of Time and it's one of the greatest movies I've ever seen. It delves deep into what the passage of time and memories means to us and has some ludicrous action with great "furious" editing. Also it introduced me to the wuxia genre which I'm beginning to love very quickly. Melancholy, lone warriors, impossible romances and crazy (and I mean crazy) combats, all in a Dynasty Warriors setting. What's not to love?

>"Persepolis … was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but lost to Ratatouille."
Why does anyone care about the Oscars when they're clearly a complete joke?

I recently watched Unfriended, I… don't recommend it. It's like someone thought "What if we crossed The Blair Witch Project with Cyberbu//y?" and decided to make it real.


File: 1467580174154.jpg (101.22 KB, 1200x793, Takeshi Kitano as Police O….jpg)

favorite movie is hana-bi.
it's just a masterpiece in my opinion, and belongs in a list of greatest films ever.
last movie I watched was High and Low, which was pretty fascinating, its a good Kurosawa film but certainly not his greatest of all time. It's not a short film either, so if you need a fluid and fat trimmed movie I certainly wouldn't choose this movie, but if you have no problem with long movies its pretty good.


File: 1467632791065.jpg (578.21 KB, 1000x744, brazil-1985-002-poster-00n….jpg)

>The film centres on Sam Lowry, a man trying to find a woman who appears in his dreams while he is working in a mind-numbing job and living a life in a small apartment, set in a consumer-driven dystopian world in which there is an over-reliance on poorly maintained (and rather whimsical) machines. Brazil's bureaucratic, totalitarian government is reminiscent of the government depicted in George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, except that it has a buffoonish, slapstick quality and lacks a Big Brother figure.

Very interesting movie by Gilliam, well worth a watch. And although the plot seems simple at first, the visuals and the makeshift ridiculousness of it all really pulls you in all the way to the shocking end.


If the Oscars are still relevant is worth discussing but yeah that animation category is totally off.


File: 1474006216555.png (1.29 MB, 1280x650, Tree-of-Life-Stained-Glass.png)

The Tree of Life. The best movie I have ever seen

The impressionistic story of a Texas family in the 1950s. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith.


While i liked this movie, it was really a massive slog. It was quite interesting, but its just so fucking long, and seemingly without much development. I could definitely see the parallels with 1984, and it was an interesting take on those ideas.




Well, I just finished 71', which is a fucking good movie.
It can be hard to hear at times (might just be my TV), but its superb.
It's on Hulu Plus if anyone has that.
I'm thinking I'm going to start getting into some older japanese films, seeing as Hulu has so many available in their catalog.


You actually liked that movie?
For me it was the slowest, most boring, unstructured and lacking any definite story I have ever seen.
I mean, sure, about half of the movie was these kids doing kids things and having some conflicts, but overall I perceived mostly random life scenes that everybody else on this planet goes through. And the rest was just scenes from nature or the big bang, and Sean Penn putting a sad face in an office building. What I mean is no narrative whatsoever


"it's Brahms you fucking idiot, what you don't like Brahms?"


I love Dr. Strangelove, and most Kubrick films. Is eyes wide shut any good? It's one of the few i havent seen


I remember not liking the movie that much. But I saw it ages ago on tv, I should rewatch it.

*is the only movie where I like Tom Cruise, tho :^)*


File: 1474618524659.jpg (876.38 KB, 1920x1082, tmp_15855-WarGames-5585545….jpg)

my favorite movie is definitely wargames (the old one)


Is there a new one?
Also the guy is hot
And Falken doesmlook like your usual nerd


File: 1537139729569.jpg (160.58 KB, 812x1200, naked_lunch-859516043-larg….jpg)

My favorite film is pic related. I guess it's because it totally changed the way I perceive kino.


Sunset Limited, maybe. I'm not much into live action.


File: 1537359268096.png (101.72 KB, 853x480, fe245fb9-34dd-4c8e-9adf-7a….png)

Come Drink With Me, or just about any old martial arts movie. I used to watch those shitty dubbed ones with my grandpa while we ate ice cream straight out of the tub.

I should rewatch it.

>Strangelove is prob my favorite movie
>think about mentioning Hana-bi and Brazil
>both are already mentioned by other rolls

this place is nice and magical and it's home


I just watched this for the first time a few days ago, I had no idea what I was in for. Croenenberg's more than just the body horror he's known for.


File: 1539069284129.jpg (152.5 KB, 675x1000, poster.jpg)

Tree of Life is good. The Thin Red Line is also very good.

My favourite Malick film though is Knight Of Cups, which probably says more about where I am in life than anything else.

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter… and Spring. Quiet, contemplative, beautifully shot.

Terry Gilliams' The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. The top of the heap of nostalgia films from my childhood including but not limited to The Gods Must Be Crazy, Willow, The Princess Bride, The Goonies, and The Adventures of Milo and Otis.

Three films will do.

As a piece of cinematography, it is good. The story is nothing amazing. Cruise is bearable, Kidman is unbearable. Barry Lyndon is definitely underrated.

I used to really love 2001 but the "big picture" storyline has lost it charm on me over the years, contrast this with the very personal Knight Of Cups. I still own a segment of Kubrick's personal cut of 2001 that came with the first print run of The Stanley Kubrick Archives.


I also watched it without having any idea about the plot, it really blew my mind.


>Three films will do.
or not. forgot Jim Jarmuschs' Broken Flowers


File: 1544209378681.jpg (194.17 KB, 1000x620, hard-to-be-a-god-2013-004-….jpg)

The last Movie I watched was Hard to be a god.
It wasn't a very pleasant expirence but it sure was very unique and interesting.
If you are searching for something unusual or have a scat fetish I would definitely recommend it.
If you want to have a comfy time you should stay away from this movie.


Electric Dragon 80,000v is a really great japanese indie film with a really great soundtrack. Would recomend to fans of tetsuo the iron man, noise guitar music or japanese pro wresting anouncers
