Recently we were talking about different movies. I and others get all the new movies and watch them and discuss them.

Then one of our friends recommended an old 1959 movie. It was great and even made this old one cry at the end.

I recommend it as a must see movie.

1959 "Imitation of Life" Staring Lana turner

Do any of you have old or new movies you would recommend others to watch?

Well here's the thread to share.

Make lots of popcorn and have fun and remember watch responsibly

I recently watched a movie called 'Duress' on Netflix. It was surprisingly thought provoking and came together in an unexpected and strangely satisfying way at the end.

I've been geeking out on movies this weekend.
Two that stuck out that I could recommend are Kevin Smith's
"Tusk." A nice mix of horror and absurd dark humor.
And one I'd never heard of, but took a chance on.
It is well acted and has a long, slow, but never boring build up to a solid, shocking conclusion.
Check out Terry Gilliam's "Tideland" if you haven't seen it. Great film.

Go see The Martian

Sicaro is good too.

God Bless America if you like Cynicism

Guardians of the Galaxy

Idiocracy is a must for anyone on ATS

Exit through the Gift shop is a great documentary


Law Abiding Citizen

The age of Adaline. A drama with a sprinkle of sci-fi. I wasn't expecting a lot when I first started watching it, but I ended up liking what they did with the storyline. It has a few holes, but I think it was worth the watch...

I'd recommend Gone with the Wind.

I recommend Into the Wild for a fun, but sad journey. Any film with Louis de Funes for it's high comedic value. It's not the modern humor though. Here's a link or two, may be a bit tricky to find in English.

I can't understand most of it except the English parts of this video and the "tres bien", but I can't help but laugh.

Now this link is in French, but has English subtitles, probably accurate. It's the full movie.

For me this still holds up as one of the best examples of modern cinema...Great storytelling, great soundtrack, great dialogue and great cast.. Any good movie fan knows Tarantino was influenced by City On Fire for this but it doesnt take any from what he accomplished with his first film...

These aren't necessarily my favorite movies in each category but they are ones I love and think others would, as well. My personal favorites do not have such a broad appeal.

Horror - 28 Days Later

Drama - Dancer in the Dark (musical)

Romantic Comedy - Girl Trash: Up All Night (musical)

Comedy - Tucker & Dale vs Evil

Action - The Crow

Adventure - Harry Potter Series (they're actually classified under "adventure", believe it or not)

Crime - Reservoir Dogs

Fantasy - Dark Crystal

Historical - Gangs of New York

Mystery - Hot Fuzz

Satire - Best in Show

Science Fiction - Serenity (the whole Firefly franchise, actually)

I recommend Zero Theory. Has a lot of underline themes to it. A man is given the task to prove through a mathmatical software that everything, the universe, life, is all for nothing. He has lived a long uneventful life looking to for the proof to this. The ending is really pleasing, a beautiful consept.

Casablanca (changed the move genre forever)

If anyone likes old westerns then they will love this one. It stars Henry Fonda and Anthony Perkins.

One of my very favorite movies is Waking Life...... It's so awesome.... check that one out for sure.

Other than that I have several others but I'm sure you've probably seen them. Some include:

O Brother Where Art Thou
Young Frankenstein
Enter the Void
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Poolhall Junkies
Cool Hand Luke
Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Boondock Saints

Man... I know I'm missing a ton of them (and excluding childhood favorites like Home Alone 2, Milo and Otis, Fifel Goes West, etc...) Oh well, there's a few. But definitely Waking Life if you haven't seen that one yet.

Warren Beatty with his epic political rap just as relevant today as it was then & a young Halle Berry, what's not to like.

Watched Waking Life right after Jim Henson's Dark Crystal after consuming cactus. That was a very fun and illuminating day.

You mean The Zero Theorem, Right? Have you seen Mr. Nobody?
