I saw The Gift (2000).

I really liked this movie.

The music was great and the acting was superb.

It's a fairly simple movie, but I appreciated that it had a twist.

The twist isn't mind-blowing, but it made the film a lot more interesting.

I liked Giovanni Ribisi's performance.

He was, after all, playing a crazy person.

I saw 1917 (2019).

It is pretty impressive, and epic.

The music is very nice, as is the acting.

Of course the cinematography is amazing.

A lot of the movie reminded me of The Revenant (2015), which is a high compliment.

I saw Joker (2019).

The film is very good, but the mood is very dark for a comic book movie.

The acting and music are excellent.

The movie was done very well.

The movie kinda hit too close to home as mental illness runs in my family, I am mentally ill, and I know a fair number of mentally ill people.

Most mentally ill people are not criminals or violent, but of course there are exceptions, and that's kinda what this film is about.

I’d like to recommend this one: Fresh (1994).

In the film, the character Fresh uses the same system of logic and strategy found in the game of chess to devise a plan to save himself and his sister from the cruel and harsh underworld of drug dealing and drug use.

And this one: Idiocracy (2006).

Private Joe Bauers, the definition of “average American”, is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes five centuries in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed down that he’s easily the most intelligent person alive.

I'm with you-same situation as me. Been on full SSD since 2005 for mental (lack of!) health problems. So I like dark movies. 

Joker (really hit home because I was bullied for most of my school and work life) Very cathartic. 

Taxi Driver

The Shining

Session 9

Anything Batman

Anything Martin Scorsese

Most sci-fi

Overall favorite: North by Northwest (beautiful blonde, Hitchcock and the 20th Century Limited-what's not to like?) The camera angles at Mt. Rushmore are to die for.

I saw Knives Out (2019).

It is excellent.

The acting and music are great.

I love movies that are murder mysteries that have a good twist in them.

The murder mystery genre is not as popular as it used to be, but this a good one.

I just noticed something...

The last three movies that I have seen have been amazingly good (and are in this thread.)

That doesn't usually happen to me, but the three movies did get very good scores on IMDB.

Probably my most liked movie of all time is “The Crow”. There’s more behind the making of the movie with Brandon’s death that makes it memorable but the movie itself is what I think makes it the best.
“Braveheart” is a close second in my opinion.

  1. Initial D (on Netflix) not the animated version but the live version. I've watched it about a dozen times (seriously). Can't really explain why I like it.
  2. Alien and Aliens (on Netflix and Blue Ray)- Because in the movie people are so stupid. They never learn thus making it fun to watch, LOL! I've also watched these over and over again.

If that's directed towards me, I only put movies that I really love in this thread, though they are what I just watched.

The ones that don't make the cut go in the other movie thread.

If I listed all of my favorite movies, it would be a really long and boring list, so I post about the last movie I saw in the appropriate thread.

 

TL;DR:

There is a method to my madness.  ;)

Agreed that “Pitch Black” is a flashlight lover’s ‘must see’.

I like film, almost to the exclusion of radio and TV. There’s a lot of movies that rank #1 for me personally. In the hundreds. Depends on mood at the time. If I watch Cuckoo’s Nest in a certain frame of mind, I don’t care for it.. Remember “Dr. Sardonicus?” There’s a lot of B and C movies that are number one now and then. It is quite impossible to call one film an everyday favorite. It’s kind of like trying to pick out a favorite flashlight. I can, but tomorrow it may be different.

I saw Jojo Rabbit (2019).

I love this movie.

You have to know what happened in World War II to fully appreciate the film, but if you do, it's a real treat.

The music is great, and the acting superb.

The script is amazingly good, and the movie is very funny and has heart.

If you don't know already, the director adapted the screenplay, played the role of Hitler, and is Jewish.

He's directed some other great movies including Eagle vs Shark and Thor: Ragnarok.

His portrayal of Hitler is done really well, though he didn't really nail the mustache.

Of course that's just a minor detail.
