    I totally agree! My kids love that movie, but it's great for grownups too, maybe one of the best animated movies out there.

    Thank you for your suggestions! :)

    I love classic movies, I've suggested some before



    Especially those surrealistic thrillers of the sixties, cold war soundbite galore, sounds good right? Ol' Blue Eyes is not just one of the biggest Crooners but is also a very decent actor.

    This is a beautiful movie, great recommendation! :cool:

    Oh dear lord this movie. I liked it, I really did, but Batman was not looking that great there. Impressive. :D

    I saw this movie for the first time when I was a kid. I was confused, but I do remember also being impressed by how it was something shot so close to the lives of the characters. Even at the time I got the impression of the cinematography being really, really raw. No, "cinematography" was not a word I knew at the time - I'm still not sure if I know now. :rolleyes: :p

    Great recommendation. Nastassja Kinski is love. The color in that movie still haunts me. ;)

    Speaking of colors, no Kieślowski fans? I only need three: white, blue and red. :cool: :p

    Don't sleep on 10 Cloverfield Lane. ;)

    Indeed it is, great recommendation. :cool:

    Is it? Is it the best one tho? :D:p

    (I don't know if you remember, but we talked about this in the Wormhole. I mentioned The Darjeeling Limited and you mentioned Mr. Fox). Great suggestion, I have to watch them again. ;)

    I don't think I ever had the opportunity to watch The Manchurian Candidate, but only read great things about it. Thank you for mentioning it, I'll see if it shows up here (we have a cable channel that excels in old movies). :cool:

    Of course I remember, Cheeto! :p And I also chuckled when I saw your Noah Baumbach suggestion above, because I knew I'd find that in your suggestions, for sure. :D

    Hah, that reminded me I should recommend here two movies I mentioned in the Wormhole ages ago. :sweatsmile:

    I don't think they were mentioned before, apologizes if they did. :)


    Hereditary.

    It's a horror movie directed by Ari Aster, who recently was responsible for Midsommar. It's not your typical horror flick relying on jump scares. It makes you think, it captivates you, and it surprises you in the end. It's a family movie but not a movie you necessarily should watch with your family. :D


    The Witch.

    Another horror movie, but this one is even stranger. I did like it a lot, but it's a raw and dark illustration of what the man can do. It also has a lot of folklore and a "great" goat called Black Phillip. Here's a fun fact: Robert Eggers, who directed The Witch, recently directed The Lighthouse, a movie you probably read about (Robert Pattinson vs. Willem Dafoe).

    Another trilogy

    “If you want love, then this is it. This is real life. It's not perfect but it's real.”

    This trilogy depicts lovers Jesse and Céline in three different parts (with nine years in between) of their lives. Ethan Hawke as the cocky American annoys me, but he does it so well.

    I found these to be very enjoyable, especially the first and the last one.

    Before Sunrise (1995)


    Before Sunset (2004)


    Before Midnight (2013)


    This is life, don't binge them, it's best put some time between them.

    It may or may not be your cup of tea, but the early days, the"silent era" of film had some great movies. As there was no sound the story had to be told in the images, these old movies are therefore often far more lively than the later movies with sound.

    Narration is mostly done by text "markers" in the movie, and often accompanied by music, sometimes even by a live narrator in the theatre, a story teller that added live comments. Some narrators were quite famous.

    Here are three full movies for you, enjoy!

    Metropolis (1927)
    The most expensive movie of its day, 5.000.000,- Deutschmarks, directed by the great Fritz Lang, all good movies are worth watching, but as a Sci-Fi fan this is my choice



    Nosferatu (1922)
    Based on Bram Stoker's Dracula it's early horror, and is still good fun to watch really.


    The General (1926)
    It was a box office bomb back in 1926, and so it is the mother of all cult movies that were under appreciated at the time, maybe because they were ahead of their time. Oh, and I love Buster Keaton, that too...

    Very nice.
    Here's one that comes at the very beginning of sound in movies.Grotesque while at the same time being really very sympathetic towards the sideshow characters in the film. A work of true genius if you ask me.

    I keep thanking the Cheesy one every now and then. :D

    Richard Linklater! And this the best piece of advice for these movies.
