Anyone got any good movies for me to watch? 

I recently watched BRAVE and it is such an awesome movie I already watched it thrice in 5 days…And still feel like I could watch it again without a problem…

But now I need some more movies to watch.


I got a bunch of movies that I will watch the coming days, but I’d like to hear what movies you like and would recommend.

I’ll add one I don’t see on people’s lists very often.  Roger Ebert gave it a thumbs up.  I want to cry at the end.


The Devil’s Rejects, by Rob Zombie


It’s a mix between horror, action, and drama.

Wow, nice lists ^.^

I’m sure to check those movies out later today.


And genres I don’t really care about, as long as it is a good movie it can be about whatever.(You know, except the 18+ stuff)

Yea, I was in Minority Report! 100 GS to who can find me! [hint: you can barely see me and you don’t know what I look like so you’re never gonna get the GS]. I also don’t remember the movie at all. You have a better chance at spotting me in Scorpion King. Only watch that if you like The Rock or Kelly Hu.

I liked Brave. Evangelion is nice and all, but if you REALLY wanna suffer, watch the original anime ;D

If you don’t feel like sticking to movies, you can watch Andromeda. Or Firefly for that matter…
I remember liking 12 Monkeys.


I’m really drawing a blank on movies right now though.

I watched BSG, didn’t like it.

I watched stargate(all kinds), liked them all

I watched firefly, is it even possible not to like it?


I’ll check out andromeda as well.

  • Firefly/Serenity. In one word: Awesome. Shame it was cancelled so soon. I guess murica doesn’t like westerns, anymore…


  • Saw. xxxx twisted. But so many twists, turns and mindfucks, it’s actually fun to watch.


  • BSG is only good up until season… 3, maybe. Anything beyond that is just the show lugging and dragging itself across the floor for some attention.


  • SG1/A. Oldies but Goodies. Plus, MacGyver.


Godamn, why didn’t I see this thread yesterday night, when I had the entire movie list right in front of me. I have a full 2Tb HDD with movies on it, wth!

I will not sort this list.


-Army of Darkness (1992). A horror comedy iconic enough to be referenced in some early FPS games.

-Someone mentioned Evangelion? Great. Let me throw in Space Runaway Ideon (1980), in particular, its second movie, Be Invoked (1982). If you cannot stand late 70s/early 80s animation, forget it. But let it be known that Ideon had some influence on Eva, and it had cool missile spam before Macross made it cool(er).

-Seconding Downfall (known in original German as Der Untergang , 2004 ), as Voyd mentioned. Ever feel what it’s like to lose a World War?

-Zardoz (1974). Not exactly a good movie, but it’s as 70s as you can get. Be warned, though, this film is Sean Connery at his weirdest.

-Iron Sky (2011). For a comedy, it has pretty good special effects. One of the actors in Downfall goes on to play an antagonist in this film.

-Triplets of Belleville (2003?). It’s a silent animated movie, but it’s nice.

-Disney’s Princess and the Frog (2009). Perhaps the last of the traditionally animated Disney films made for the big screen, but who knows? Maybe they’ll make another film like it someday.

-Men of Honor (2000). Be a man of integrity.

It is quite hard to find good movies it seems :dntknw:  I have watched several other movies so far, but none seem to get close to the awesomeness of BRAVE  :sad:


I got 3 or so more that I will watch, but I didn’t even bother with like 15 others that I had in my list at first…They just didn’t seem worth it anymore after watching parts of several terrible ones :confused:


How to train your dragon > good movie, a bit weak at the ending though

Tangled > good movie, kinda the same like every movie though

Epic > good movie

After earth > Will smith was in it, had expected it to be better. But not a bad movie

Easy A > good movie, but kinda meh



Survival of the dead > It just didn’t have the good vibe other zombie movies usually got

Despicable me > Watched it for 20 mins, caused me to delete 15 movies by ruining my mood entirely



I will be watching >

The Spiderwick Chronicles

Monty Python

And rewatching Stargate Universe

As a film student I cannot help but recommend a couple of films. 


Todo sobre mi madre (1999), Spanish comedy-drama. It’s a beautiful film to behold, with very human issues handled in a very lighthearted manner. Penélope Cruz is one of the main cast.


Léon: the Professional (1994), thriller. Stars Jean Reno as the titular character, a hitman by the name of Léon, and Gary Oldman as the primary antagonist. This is also Natalie Portman’s debut, and her portrayal of a young orphan is simply wonderful.  


The Devil Wears Prada (2006), comedy-drama. If you haven’t watched it, please do. If you haven’t heard of it, I don’t know what to say.


Up in the Air (2009), comedy-drama. Stars George Clooney as a person who fires people for a living. 


Children of Men (2006), sci-fi. Set in a dystopian world, this film is shot in an almost documentary-like manner which lends it a very unique and immersive feel. Excellent cinematography, plus a strong plot to boot. 



If you’re into Asian cinema:


Ringu (1998), Japanese horror. The original version of The Ring. In all honesty, The Ring is crap in comparison. Samara is a sad, sad shadow of the original Sadako. Watch the original. It’s a million times better.


Chungking Express (1994), Hong Kong melodrama/art cinema. The story revolves around the love lives of two cops. The film is almost pensive and dreamlike in its portrayal. Pretty much a must-watch, IMO, if you like art cinema.


Tampopo (1985), Japanese comedy. Marketed as the first ‘ramen western’ (think spaghetti westerns), it revolves around how two truck drivers help a ramen stall owner improve her cooking skills and save her struggling business. Subtle at times, and downright blatant at others, it is a very, very engaging and enjoyable film. Just a note: it’s NSFW.


Curse of the Golden Flower (2006), Chinese period epic. If you like watching pretty images, this film will blow you away. It’s probably one of the grandest films I’ve ever watched: it screams LAVISH AND OPULENT with every scene. From a critical perspective it’s not a great film, a letdown even considering the director’s other films. Check out Raise the Red Lantern (1991) or House of Flying Daggers (2004) if you’re interested in Zhang Yimou’s other films…




Coincidentally, I also just returned from the opening night of a film festival. The opening film was Television (2012), a Bangladeshi film. It was the closing film for the Busan International Film Festival last year, and it is currently selected as Bangladeshi’s entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards. The story revolves around a community in Bangladesh, whose leader has banned all kinds of images (photos, television etc). Comical and satirical, it’s a very entertaining film that’s easy to comprehend in spite of the foreign culture.

Woah woah woah, what was wrong with Despicable Me?

I just remembered one, it was called… Epoch I think? If you can manage to survive the first 4 lines of dialogue, you are a better human than I, because it was the worse acting I had ever seen.

Oh, right, we want good movies… can’t go wrong with 5th Element.

As someone who’s opinion, mood and decisions can change in a matter of seconds, things are difficult to explain sometimes :stuck_out_tongue:

Despicable me… I just did get a good feeling in the beginning, maybe it becomes better in the middle/end, but the beginning was absolutely terrible, and just made me stop watching it.

With terrible I mean boring as hell.

First - on the subject of tv series. This is easier than typing them all out - most of these are good, with a few exceptions as I am occasionally strong-armed in getting something that I don’t necessarily want to see.




Edit: I’ll PM you a list of movies, it’s too long to fit in a post.



One of the greatest movies ever made

If you liked Brave, and how to Train your Dragon (Both good films - I downloaded them for the kids though lol)

Try - Wreck It Ralph, this is by far the greatest kids film ever made !

Kipps, now you are making me sound like a kid…(Though I suppose I am :stuck_out_tongue: )

And yeah, HTTYD was good.

WIR…The name just makes me go > I’ll just skip it.


And evil…Dat collection :o

No seriously - Wreck it Ralph is amazing.

But WIR has Eggman!

I kinda expected Dollhouse to be on eviltictac’s list.

if it comes to sci fi, i love the characters most. movies can have cool effects, or a deep story, but they do not need the characters to be deep, so it really depends if the series can develop a good story, good effects and good characters.


babylon 5 is along the top ones, as is firefly and some of the treks

since bab5 is heavily lord of the rings inspired, and has some very talented actors who basicly added multiple layers to the alien races involved, it’s only good as long as londo mollari and g’kar are active, so the best seasons are 2-4; i would still start with 1. the early movies were also pretty neat, some are however really bad, as is the crusader spin-off, mostly because the characters are bad.

space fights are also adequate, however the cgi is pretty old (i liked about that show, that they made the interiors similar to the cgi, so you don’t feel the change so much)


and since iron sky was mentioned, if one has seen star trek and babylon 5, and liked those, watching “Star Wreck” in finnish (use subtitles) from the same guys is also worth it. it’s basicly a comedy sci-fi about star trek vs. babylon 5, sometimes surpassing them both by lengths in cgi quality of the space battles. pew pew pew. FUKOOOOV!!!


nice list evil, however yeah, you do miss dollhouse, sopranos, avatar and sherlock.


edit: didn’t check The.
