Movie Recommendation Thread

Unread postby Cerebral_DownTime » Mon Aug 01, 2011 8:04 pm

I figured I'd start a movie thread for when people see good movies others might have missed out on. I've been feasting on foreign movies lately and here are several I thought were good. If you see something cool, post it here.

I Saw The Devil (Korean)- A Special Agent hunts and torments the sadistic serial killer who murdered his wife and unborn child. This movie is amazingly violent. If you saw and liked Oldboy, then you'll dig this flick. The Koreans are really the only ones pushing the envelope when it comes to violent movies. It's not torture porn either (plus I think anybody who uses that phrase is know nothing dimwit anyway).

Terribly Happy (Danish)- A dark Cohen Brothers movie. A Copenhagen cop is being relocated to a small isolated town inhabited by strange locals who have a different view on justice. Very well written and acted, it's been rumored the Cohen Brothers are going to be remaking this over here....... and I can see why.

Flame & Citron (Danish)- Follows 2 WWII assassins who target Nazi Officers and Danish sympathizers. If you like WWII history, this is for you. It's a side Americans don't know a lot about. It's not stormin' the beach of Normandy, but it's still a important story.

Black Death (British)- I'm not gonna call this movie great, but it's a lot of fun. It's about a church appointed knight charged with finding a village ruled by Necromancers the church believes is behind the Plague raging across the country side. Set in the 1300's and it stars Sean Bean...... and he's swingin a sword just like good ole Ned Stark.

50 Dead Men Walking (British)- A young Irish father to be is asked to infiltrate the IRA. He finds himself torn between he belief in the IRA's cause and providing for his new family. Ben Kingsley is excellent, I thought it was one of the better British films i've seen. It shows how ruthless the IRA really were, even to their own people.

The Baader Meinhof Complex (German)- An excellent film about the Communist Red Army Faction in 1970's Germany. The main characters aren't going to win any hearts, but the story is important. It really shows how far the struggle went to resist American influence and capitalist power.

Check 'em out, they're all on Netflix. I've become tired of the brain dead drivel Hollywood passes off as quality movies these days. Luckily the foreign movie scene is putting out quality flicks.

I'm always looking for movies to watch. if you see any, post 'em here.

'Loved 50 Dead Men Walking' CDT. Thought it was a tremendous and appreciate the recommendation. Had to watch it twice given the brogue but that's often how it works when I watch those films.

Yes, it needed subtitles. I figured you Irish had a natural born ear for that accent.

He coulda gone cliche' with the Heath Ledger/Jake Gylenhall cowboy romp but he was creative there and made me laugh.

With the foreign stuff y'all gotta tell me if it's subtitles or dubbed (as many of the new foreign films have english dubbing). I'm not too lazy to read, but it really messes with my head since whatever happened happened back in January.

Anyone wants to kill ne instantly just send me one of those japanese cartoons or City of God (which was effing phenomenal by the way).

Japanese cartoons?

I just cannot watch a dubbed film, I think it takes away from the acting.

Weren't kids stroking out or seizing up because of the animation on some of the japanese cartoons.

You might be right on the dubbing thing. But it beats a stroke.

True, that was impressive. Wish I had the kind of spare time to sit around and think shit up like that all day.

For CTD, I put Flame and Citron on my list yesterday, will let you know what I think after I check it out this weekend.

I wanted to like The Adjustment Bureau more than I did.

Source Code was actually pretty decent, as was The Lincoln Lawyer. Not great, but didn't want me to stick needles in my eyes.

I reserved that right for "Arthur", which I got stuck watching yesterday on the flight to S.F. Just fugging brutally bad.

:thumb up: Saw it a few years ago and it was amazing. Like a Brazilian "Goodfellas". Excellent directing, guns, violence, guns, decent acting, thrilling, and guns and more shootouts than any mafia film I ever saw.

Not sure if there is an English dubbed version on BluRay/DVD. I would advoid that and select the English subtitles option.

13 Assassins- (Japan) Takashi Miike (Icihi The Killer) directs this remak of the amazing Seven Samurai from the 1960s. An honor bound Samurai must undertake the murder of the Shogun's violent and sadistic brother. To do it he puts together a group of 12 loyal and noble fellow Samurai. Some people have said "ohh the first part of the movie is slow", those people are morons who think Transformers is a good movie, the build up is needed so you now WHY and HOW they're doing what they're doing. The movie is a little over 2 hours..... with a 40+ minute battle scene. For a Miike flick, he did pretty good job of making this a serious movie without the cartoon blood of Ichi.

Check the Benadryl bottle. Should be 'recommended' dosage on the side.

Do not know last movie I saw in theater with wife only. Seriously have no idea. And last movie I watched at all was 'Insidious' with my oldest who, like me, loves the horror genre but who, like me, hates watching movies like 'Insidious' in the hopes they don't blow.

Insidious had a lot of potential, but they fucked it up with the 2nd half of the movie. The Further? Really? The disgusting landlady from Kingpin is a medium? The first time the demon thing (George Lucas gonna sue somebody, that was Darth Maul) appeared behind the dad, my wife jumped OFF the couch.

The scenes with the dude outside the window just pacing back and fourth were good, the baby monitor scene was good, and I liked the scenes using "Tiptoe Through The Tulips"........that's just a creepy fucking song.

Potential wasted on a terrible ending.

Yeah, saw this awhile ago. The first part of the movie mainly dragged due to the translation thing. That said, damn did he work in some shocking imagery.

Yes, I like Anderson quite a bit. I heard about this for the first time a few days ago.

I became a big fan with the RoyaL Tenenbaums, which i thought was great. And I might be the only person I know who liked The Life Aquatic.

Royal Tennenbaums was amazing, as was I Heart Huckabees and Bottle Rocket.

WTF does Wes Anderson have to do with I Heart Huckabees?

I put those movies there because the brand of humor in them to me is similar. Maybe it was not I Heart Huckabees I was thinking of, but my opinion remains unchanged, not a huge Wes Anderson fan. And pardon for my fuzzy memory I've already been at the office/working on a laptop for nearly 80 hours this week, eat a bag of dicks.

I hope Billy Murray murders you in your sleep Ricky.

Lost in Translation was a Wes Anderson movie, right?!?!

Hey you Boston loving, Cleveland hating, tator-tot shunning asshole, I liked Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, and What About Bob. Rushmore was also not to my liking and Jason Schwartzman is not funny to me. His characters are always similar, a lot like Ben Affleck's characters sans robbing banks in Town and liking underage women IE Mallrats.

I expect Bill Murray to be excellent in this.


Yes, I like Anderson quite a bit. I heard about this for the first time a few days ago.

I became a big fan with the RoyaL Tenenbaums, which i thought was great. And I might be the only person I know who liked The Life Aquatic.



I loved Life Aquatic. It's up there with Royal Tenenbaums for me. I Heart Huckabees is also amazing; better than both those movies for me.

Royal Tannenbaums was ah-ight... no Rushmore, but not awful.

I Heart Huckabees was awful. It made me want to stab my eyes and ears out so that it would go away.

Having read no reviews on it, I rented Cowboys vs. Aliens the other night out of curiosity. Horrendous. Less fun than wiping your ass with a brick. Two genres that don't in any way mix. Halfway through, I was giving my wife specifics on what would happen at the end, and I didn't miss one (to make sure I was right was the only reason we didn't turn it off).

So there's one you can miss.

Pleasantly surprised by Bad Teacher - not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Cameron Diaz's face though... time is taking a toll.

I really enjoyed Cowboys v. Aliens, but only from a "WOW THIS IS AMAZINGLY BAD" perspective.

The Life Aquatic is a stupid movie really arrogant people say they like so it appears they're intelligent (like any Woody Allen movie). The problem is the movie sucks rhino balls. Owen Wilson is the worst actor ever and the movie wasn't funny at all.

Wes Anderson is the new Woody Allen, loved by so called intellectuals, ignored or loathed by actual human beings with a functioning brain.

Watch the movie The Wave.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil had some really great parts and was pretty solid until the last half hour, which was just ah-ight. Still worth a watch, esp under the influence.
