Let's talk about movies lol

Hey guys,

In this period of confinement, I’m out of things to do (that’s not true- but I like to think of it that way even if I have assigned work to do).

I’ve been watching quite a few movies recently and some I love, some I found were too ‘slow’ e.g Machinist (i didn’t even watch it fully) and boring lol. But some were interesting e.g Fractured - that movie kept me thinking a lot while it was running.

If you have movie recommendations, I would love it xD I would like to see something that’s not ‘slow paced’, and at the same time would be convenient for a family viewing.

Stay safe guys! (btw I’m loving music recommendations on the music talk section)

I’m always a fan of Wes Anderson movies, but based on the two movies you listed I have no clue if they will be a fit for you. My personal favorite is Rushmore, but they all have moments I like. Moonlight Kingdom, Royal Tenenbaums, and Bottle Rocket are all great

This is the perfect time to plug that y’all should seek out Zulawski’s Posession, a movie that changes genres every 15 minutes is about a spy whose wife leaves him for another man who happens to also be an eldritch squid god

Curious if you’ve seen Mandy? Really insane Nic Cage movie (in a good way) where he seeks revenge on the cultists who killed his wife.

Yep
You should check out the director’s first film. Beyond the black rainbow

I watched it after I saw Mandy. I don’t know that I’d say I liked either movie as a whole, but his style is pretty unique. Opening Mandy with a King Crimson song had me at hello.

all above 18 in the family xD I’ll check it out lol

lol i didn’t ask for kid movies hahaah. But i appreciate the suggestion xD

Recently watched Before I Fall - Not super fast paced but gives some food for thought

Interstellar - Awesome Sci-Fi movie, but you probably know that one

Contagion - Movie about a virus spreading round the world

Deepwater Horizon - Movie about the men and women on the drilling rig. I just hope you don’t have anyone working in that industry.

Morgan - Sci-Fi/Action

Oooh contagion seems interesting especially in this era we’re living in!
I’ve watched interstellar (superb soundtrack btw), great movie, deepwater horizon is cool too. Haven’t seen morgan, before i fall, but i’ll be sure to check them out! Thanks!

For A Few Dollars more - Better than The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Come at me.
Dark Star - More of an eclectic choice, but a dude surfs to his death on the wreckage of a spaceship. Don’t tell me you aren’t going to watch that.
In Bruges - For people who like the word c**t, and midgets… sorry, dwarfs.

Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid - Back when having former SNL cast members make movies was a wise decision.
