A horror classic is

Saw (2004)

 

If you like that, check out some of the many sequels.

Some are pretty good.

I think

Saw II (2005)

is the best of the sequels.

 

If you like those, a similar movie is

Escape Room (2019)

but it's not really gory like the Saw series, which makes it easier to recommend.

Don’t know about the favourite.
But I Downloaded the latest Stalone Movie last week.
Opening here in July sometime.

Ëscape Plan. The Extractors”.

Got round to watching it last night.
Lower budget than usual for him.
I reckon it’ll do his rep more damage than good.
After what he’s been making recently.
The Text is real F Grade in parts.

BUT. It’s a Rambo and free.

Men in Black International. is another.

A “half” take off of MIB. Quite funny in parts.
but not up to usual standards of story.

The Professor (Johnny Depp) is a good one too.

I’ve ben watching movies since around 1949/50
so can’t remembe them all.
But you can put John Wayne. and Tom Sellick at the top I’d think.
Followed by any GOOD SF, then action after that.

PLUS. ALL the kids GOOD Animated movies too.
They are Bloody amazing.

Basically ANY good movie I watch and enjoy, is the best.
Till the next one.

Just watched “Borgman“.

What an odd but intriguing film.

I still don’t get it.

The scene with Isolde and the would-be gardener is priceless, though! LOL

My personal favorite movie is Conan the barbarian, not the greatest film but the OST is one of the best ever made and perfectly fit the universe.

Do you have the Prometheus version of the score recorded by the City of Prague Philharmonic?

The GREY. Is one of Neesons best. Specially the end.

This new one with him as a snowplough driver is good too.
I’ve just watched it.

And the best Conan was the first in Arnies Series
Not these modern ones. when he barely spoke English Nor acted.
Not that the acting has improved much hey.

Thinking about it, surprised no one (including me) yet mentioned “10 To Midnight“.

Great flick, and except for the (rather satisfying) end, has only implied violence a la Hitchcock.

I hadn’t seen it in a very long time. Just re-watched it last year and was amazed at how much I still enjoyed it. Although bias probably helped, as I really enjoyed it as a kid and had a super crush on Sandal Bergman. James Earl Jones really made that movie, too. It aged well, because of minimal reliance on CGI and great quality pyrotechnic effects. It felt “real.” The second movie was fun for different reasons, partly because of Grace Jones — she was a hoot. Arnie’s acting had gotten a little better too. But CGI… was miserable. Especially the sorcerer’s castle scene. Terrible lighting, the worst in the boat crossing. I’ve long wondered if that movie would ever be remastered with updated CGI.

I think I saw that cleaned up on TV decades ago when I was a kid.

Maybe I should watch the uncensored version because I don't remember it very well.  :BEER:

Definitely “borrow” a copy and watch it. It’s a keeper.

Like “The Terminator”, it’s one of those movies I could watch over and over and never get tired of it.

Honorable mentions:

“Mississippi Burning”

“In The Heat Of The Night”

“Alien” and “Aliens”

“Runaway”

whole buncha others.

I grabbed it when it was first released (was actually on a waiting list), and picked up the 3 Disc Intrada remaster when it came out.

Like you it remains one of my favorite soundtracks.

Talking 'bout "Runaway"...

I can really recommend to you guys the movie "Runaway Train" with Jon Voight in one of his best roles ever. It's a quite old movie but still thrilling without using this CGI stuff. I can also recommend the great soundtrack.

 

If you want to watch the full movie, it's on youtube...

That was a movie that was really ahead of it’s time. It was a favorite for me in the day.

Absolutely, especially the quip about the “old style 8088” in the ag-bot when it was the top-of-the-line µP in the peecee at the time (think only the DEC Rainbow had an 8086).

Floaters are now drones. Ag robots are also ground-based drones roaming the fields without hyu-mons inside. Now “co-bots” (collaborative robots) is the “in” thing. Robotic sentries exist (but are egg-shaped and unarmed). The military has self-guided projectiles fired form rifles. And Gene Simmons is still alive.

I knew back when it came out that it was prescient, ‘though the exact timeline was up for grabs.

Hmm, think I got that as a two-fer on a dvd with D’Onofrio’s “Taking of Pelham 1-2-3“, but don’t recall watching it yet.

Did rewatch “Den Skyldige“ (“The Guilty”) again… great flick. If you liked “Locke” you’d love DS. In Danish, so had to grab the subs, but it’s an hournahalf of realtime drama which all takes place in pretty much one room.

Oh! “Suicide Kings“. Dark comedy, emphasis on dark. Great little flick, but avoid the “happy” alternate endings if you got the dvd, as they’ll ruin it.

Lots of older choices that bring back good memories. How about something newer? One of my current favs is “Ready Player One” it’s like a walk through my youth and teen years.

I liked Ready Player One.

When I was a kid, one of the first games I played was Adventure, a game featured in the movie.

I remember a buddy of mine showing me the Easter egg in that game. I preferred arcade games but had my share of sore thumbs from the 2600, 5200, colecovision, Sega and then puberty hit. The last game I played was “Zombies Ate My Neighbors” . Since I was always a big fan of the old horror movies it was like they made the game for me.
