Hello CL Friends!
'Slim asked for some television recommendations, which made me think of sharing favorite movies List any and all movies, old and new, that are your top favorites or you have recently seen or even still want to see.
I am always looking for a good movie to watch, and it isn't it amazing how Netflix has thousands of movies listed, yet I can go through that list and not find a thing to watch? lol I always find it on Netflix then look up the reviews on IMDB to see what the site rated the movie and read a few user reviews.
I am especially always looking for a good psychological thriller. Those "edge of your seat" movies wit lots of twists and turns. I am not huge on horror or gore for the sake of gore, but I do enjoy suspense and if that comes with a bit of blood and guts, then so be it. lol As long as that is not the main focus.
I enjoy a good comedy, too, but as we all know there are plenty out there that just are not that great. So I like to get others' recommendations for a good comedy.
Anyway, let's start a big list of movies so when we need something to watch we can visit this thread.
Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of the things, and no good thing ever dies.
The last movie I watched was gambling related. Croupier, a 1998 crime/drama was not exactly action-packed, but it was a fun look inside the life of a croupier played by Clive Owen. A nice twist at the end of the movie makes sure it's not one of those where the ending spoils the entire movie. IMDB gives this movie a 7.2 score.
Some of my favorites are ones that I am pretty sure people have seen before and are:
- Ghostbusters (original only, the other one sucked)
- Pulp Fiction
- Star Wars Original Trilogy
If you're looking for a good move and has a risqué sense of humor I highly recommend This is the End from 2013. It is hilarious and sees sensationalized versions of various actors stuck in a house during the apocalypse. One of the funniest movies I've ever seen and wonderfully dark and dirty.
I loved Pulp Fiction!
Another really fun Tarantino movie that is available to stream on Netflix is Jackie Brown. I can't believe I didn't see it before about one month ago. The movie is from 1997, rated 7.5, and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it.
Another one that I had been wanting my sons to watch for years, and Netflix finally put it up. Leon the Professional: This 1994 movie has a high rating (IMDB is stingy with ratings) of 8.6 on Netflix.
Finally, here is one that is not uplifting, but i believe everyone should see this true story in the name of awareness. Netflix finally put this up, too, and the young actor does such a fine job in this 2013 movie that receives a 7.5 IMDB rating.
That's all I can think of for now!
All Tarantino's movies are classics. Can't wait for the hateful 8. Fingers crossed.
I mentioned today one of my favourite movie : A BEAUTIFUL MIND with Rossell Crowe. I try to mentioned every day a movie. I hope you enjoy.
A Beautiful Mind was a very good movie. The man he portrayed, John Nash, died in a car accident in May at age eighty-six. Amazing person and movie.
If you have Netflix and like documentaries, I just watched one that was very good called "The Wolfpack." This is about a family of mostly boys who are kept in a NYC apartment by their father who will not let them go out and even dictates what room they can be in. They go out on outings sometimes a few times per year, and some years not at all. Because of this the boys immerse themselves in the father's DVD collection and act out he movies. They make elaborate costumes out of household items. They eventually start to rebel and leave the apartment, but everything they do and see they can only relate to what they know - the movies.
This father is a piece of work and I did feel sorry for the mom who at least seemed to try to give the children a life. They are almost like a mini cult.
Check it out to see what happens to them and if you like a very good documentary!

In a similar vein to "The Wolfpack" that Hope mentioned, there is a fantastic book called "Room" by Emma Donoghue. The story is told from the point of view of a 5 year old boy who lives with his "Ma" in a room - this is entire world. Beautifully written, disturbing and uplifting insight into human beings and what they can do to one another and for one another.
The book (as with so many good books) has been turned into a movie, also called "Room". It premiered earlier this year but is only being released in January for Australia. Will try to get to see this one at the movies over the summer break.
