PostSubject: Movie Recommendations    Mon Dec 09, 2013 11:52 am

Hey all,
Just like the title says - give me some movie recommendations! I am looking for movies already released on DVD, nothing that's still in the theaters. I love horror, sci-fi, comedies, westerns, etc but it doesn't really matter, if it sounds good I will watch it! Here is a list of the last 5 movies I have watched:

Kalifornia
World War Z
Rushmore
Jawbreaker
The Limey

Outside of World War Z, I had already seen the other 4 - I need something new or something old I forgot about!

What do you recommend?

I will have to check out The Devils Carnival for sure! I loved Dale and Tucker Vs. Evil, that was a bday present from my brother last year. I love anything with zombies in it, good or bad I will watch it. Many thanks for the recommendations Smile

Have you ever seen the original Star Wars trilogy? It's fantastic. Readily available on DVD, VHS and everything else.


Other than that I'd recommend:

Inception....annnnnndddd.....anything with Ben Kingsley in it.

I don't watch many films. Can you tell?

 lol! 
 
agreed , I highly recommend those as well  Very Happy 
 
The Phantom Menace is the best of the original trilogy - fantastic storyline , great acting and speacial effects that weren't overdone at all  What a Face 
 
The best star Wars character of all time was introduced as well - Mr Jar jar Binks  cheers  The actor in that suit should have won a oscar that year  :clap: 
 
Just watch the 1st 3 movies ... by the time you get to Part IV you can tell the quality really goes down hill   No   Hell , it looks like the budget was cut in half and the speacial effects were done in the 70's or something  What a Face 

"New Hope" my ass  :cool laugh: 

Meesa gotsa besa going nowsa ...
 
 :run2: :run2: :run2: :run2: :run2:

James, I'd defo recommend Pain & Gain, it's based on a true story and it's so funny seeing the f**k up's these guys made trying to rob some one.

A few movies I've seen recently are "Dredd" , "Cloud Atlas" and "The Life Of Pi". All of which i really enjoyed. I have no real clue what cloud atlas was about but it was a really enjoyable movie nonetheless with stunning visuals and excellent acting from a small cast playing all the characters.

But if we're talking older movies then, not In  any particular order of preference:
Watchmen
The Dark Knight Trlogoy
The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy
The Matrix Trilogy
The Indianna Jones Trilogy (crystal skull is a bit iffy)
Rise of the Planet Of The Apes
X Men First Class
Prometheus
Avengers Assemble
The Iron Man Trilogy
Donnie Darko
The Fifth Element
Layer Cake
Dark City
Leon
The Godfather Trilogy
From Dusk Till Dawn (or any tarrentino or rodriguez movie)
28 days later
12 monkeys
Equilibrium
Moon
Children of Men
Cloverfield
Wanted
Hell Boy I And II
Blade Runner

I recently just watched Kick Ass 2 & was beyond disappointed with that. On the flip side, I did watch Outrage from Takeshi Kitano (who is also in Battle Royale, one of my all time favorite movies) & it was awesome! Cannot wait for the sequel, Beyond Outrage  Very Happy

I am gong to bump this thread, because I am wanting to know a few opinions on so,e recently or about to be released movies to DVD/bluray.

First was 90 minutes in heaven any good? Just general thoughts as I don't want spoilers, but I looked up DVD release dates and saw it scored low with critics so wasn't sure if I should even bother on it.

Second is coming out this week. Antman. Was it any good. Same no spoilers please. I am curious because it scored middle ground and usually marvel stuff has been hit or miss so haven't seen a middle road before.

Lastly is minions. More for my seven year old, so will it be enjoyed by a seven year old?

I honestly will probably end up with the second two regardless as I am a comic fan and my kid loves the despicable me films. It's mostly the first one I am curious about.

If you haven't seen it by now.. Ant-Man is good. It mirrors Iron Man 1 and isn't necessarily loaded with deep Marvel lore or terminology (except when Douglas is on screen).

Nice blend of comedy and action.
