    I really like Shutter Island, stunning performance by Leo (hint: he is decent in Inception too :D).


    For action Django Unchained is nice:

    Ok, I was going to make a super-organised mega-post, but in the meantime the majority of the things I was going to post, have already been posted (and I've seen a few interesting suggestions that I haven't seen yet, that I'll definitely be checking out at some point - basically all except Dirty Dancing, I've never seen that and it's not on my "must see" list to be honest :oops:).

    So just an un-organised off the top of my head list of films I haven't seen mentioned yet (will make more posts later, yes, I will, it's true :p):

    Impressive films I've recently seen which were based on true stories:
    Hacksaw Ridge

    American Sniper


    Films that left a huge impression on me when I saw them:
    Das Experiment

    La Haine


    [cutting up into multiple posts because of some nonsense 5 media limit :rolleyes:]

    Just because it has Tom Waits in it, petting a rabbit, and Tom Waits is love, Tom Waits is life (and Coffee and Cigarettes had already been covered):
    Seven Psychopaths

    And another film the title Coffee and Cigarettes always reminds me of:
    Thank you for smoking


    Very old Westerns, which I always used to watch with my grandfather:
    The Lone Ranger (the original, haven't seen the remake)

    Tall in the saddle

    Some animated/claymation stories for those who don't mind those:
    Grave of the fireflies

    Les triplettes de Belleville

    Waking Life

    J'ai perdu mon corps

    Mary and Max

    I'm guessing those who like Pink Floyd will have seen The Wall and those who haven't, won't be interested, but it's a great film and album!

    Not the good, bad and ugly, but the ugly, the dirty and the bad:

    Ok, that's enough for now I reckon :p

    A very good movie with a fantastic Soundtrack, here are a few:

    Into the Wild (2007)
    Eddie Vedder with a Yukelele, 'nuff said :D


    Paris, Texas (1984)
    Ry Cooder made the soundtrack, it's nothing short of brilliant.


    Easy Rider (1969)
    Sixties galore, get me some Byrds, Hendrix and Steppenwolf.

    Maybe the best prison movie ever.



    Or maybe, it's this one, because of Michael Clarke Duncan.

    Mr. BG , Jun 1, 2020 :
    In the light of recent events following the killing of George Floyd, here are some recommendations if you want some context and historic insight.

    Based on James Baldwin's unfinished manuscript Remember This House. Narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, the film explores the history of racism in the United States through Baldwin's reminiscences of civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr., as well as his personal observations of American history.



    "1964, the year America was at war with themselves.


    And something more recent, more personal. Although I think the ending is too sweet and simple.

    There are such great recommendations here and a lot of them definitely going on my list! Thanks a lot for this thead.

    A lot of my favourites are listed above. I just have a couple on top of my head, and not mentioned above, that I want to share:

    • Absolutely love Studio Ghibli movies! Grave of the fireflies is one of their best and very powerful, so happy to see this recommendation. Although I love all of them, Spirited Away is another one I want to recommend.



    • I love movies by Wong-kar Wai and In the Mood for Love is a masterpiece. It is emotionally moving and the visual aesthetics along with beautiful music compliments the theme really well.



    If you like this, you can also check out Chungking Express by him.

    • There's another art-drama that I really liked - La Grande Bellezza by Paolo Sorrentino. It is just beautifully filmed!


    • Talking of aesthetics, Wes Anderson cannot be missed. His movies are the most aesthetically beautiful movies to watch and I love a lot of them but the best one has to be Fantastic Mr Fox! Ah, so good!
