I'll add Prophesy because I LOVE Christopher Walken.
And already know the rest.


Not to caver78:

Also good fellas, the godfather, I could play those movies for you, who do you think you're talking to? A cinematic virgin?

Well, if dark revenge tales are your thing...

Oldboy.


The original Korean version, with subs (not dubs) of course.


After being kidnapped and imprisoned for 15 years, Oh Dae-Su is released, only to find that he must find his captor in 5 days.

www.imdb.com...

I'll also add, the reasons for his captivity are a mystery he seeks to discover.

Avoid spoilers!

Oceans 11


Ooooo... I forgot about Ocean's Eleven (both the original and the newer one)

Awesome must-watch movies !

And besides, who doesn't love a great "buddys-robbing-three-casinos" type of flick ?!

You've probably seen it by now, but if not, I recommend "Crash." When I watched it, I thought to myself it should win the Oscar and dang if it didn't.

How are we supposed to know you didn't just crawl out from some secluded commune in Nepal, never to have set your eyes on that high-tech thing called a television ?

I would go with the sex comedy I Spit on Your Grave. Either the original or remake.

If you are into Samurai... Nearly any of Akira Kurosawa's films.

My favorites include:

- Rashomon
- Seven Samurai (Later remade as, "The Magnificent Seven".)
- Throne of Blood (A retelling of Macbeth.)
- The Hidden Fortress
- Yojimbo (Later remade as, "A Fistful of Dollars".)
- Sanjuro (Sequel to Yojimbo)
- Ran

You can't go wrong with these films or this director if you're into this genre!

If you like a bit of a time orientated mindF try "Looper". Its a pretty good watch.

Failing to come up with movies hit google for "IMDB top 250 greatest films". Theres barely a handful that i dont agree with but as for the rest, cant go wrong!

Traffic
Heat
Tombstone (I've never met anyone who didn't like Tombstone)
Things to do in Denver when your dead
Shinobi (I think that's the title)
Way of the gun
The Departed
Ghostdog: Way of the samurai
The Thing (Kurt Russell version)
The Shallows

It really depends on your tastes but these are a few that I would recommend just off the top of my head. Nothing truly deep or artsy here just action, suspense and crime drama except for Traffic the way that was done was different than the usual formula and a highly critically acclaimed movie. If your really into movies then I suggest an app called Kodi, you download it to your computer and it scans steaming sources then compiles them in list format. You just click the links until you find the ones that work and you can find and watch just about anything on that program. Perfectly legal yet controversial and being worked against to be shut down so I would jump on that while you still can. You can even watch movies still in theaters though they are usually cams and each link tells you the quality of the stream like cam, high, med, low. I have marathon watched Ray Donovan, The Strain, Ballers, Fear the walking dead all in the last couple of weeks and I am now on Black Sails which is awesome btw...Blackbeard just stepped on the scene.
