Movies You've only Just Watched

Currently watching The Professional for the first time. It’s weird but very charming in a way. I love it!


#968

It’s about pedophilia and milk. Two things I don’t like.


#969

It’s not really pedophilia since she is trying to seduce him. Doesn’t make the scenes comfortable though. Great movie.


#970

I literally just saw the pedophilia part after i posted. Extremly uncomfortable. But Leon isn’t atracted to her. I’m not sure if that counts as pedophilia but it still gives me the creeps. :confounded:


#971

Kinda like Taxi Driver. Heavy and shocking subjects somehow end in good movies. It’s part of the essence. Still, the movie is really good.


#972

I looooved taxi driver


#973

It Follows.

What the actual fuck? So weird, really creepy and really good.


#974

The pedophillic scenes were in the script but never shot, IIRC. Better that way, but what the fuck was Besson thinking?


#975

I watched The Prestige and Children of Men recently. Can absolutely recommend to anyone who enjoys watching quality films.


#976

Now I’m watching Man on the Moon

I loved this movie. It has such a classic Carpenter vibe, especially the retro synthetic score. Great stuff.

I just saw The Accountant starring Ben Affleck. Thought it was really good. It certainly doesn’t go the realistic route for autism, but instead uses it as a way to create a more believable “super hero” (in the sense that it explains some of his more special abilities) of sorts.

The film is basically an action thriller with a somewhat unconventional hero, and it did a great job keeping me interested.

Story spoiler ahead, only read if you don’t care or if you’ve seen the movie:

I really didn’t see the ending twist with the brother coming. Maybe because I wasn’t expecting a twist of this sort and therefore wasn’t looking for it. It impressed me though.

I am quite impressed with Affleck’s journey as an actor. He used to be so bad… now he’s very good, and this movie is no exception.

I finally took my time to watch Snowden and I thought it was great. I thought it was kind of touching in the end. Snowden sacrificed his life for all of us.

It’s a good think that Hollywood made a movie about this, so his actions can be spread out to even more. But do yourself a favor and watch the documentary about him releasing the information. I actually think I’ll watch it again soon.


#980

Has anybody seen Live by Night with Ben Affleck? How was it?


#981

How did you find it compared to the original documentary?

Personally I found the movie to be really not that great.


#982

Still haven’t seen Snowden. Citizenfour however is an amazing documentary. I love how it acts as a record of events and plays out in real time. You can feel the tension and excitement in the hotel room as the stories are being prepared.

Ed Snowden is a personal hero of mine - A man of absolute conviction. If more people had his sense of right and wrong I’ve no doubt the world would be a better place.


#983

Just saw Man Bites Dog. It is a good movie but halfway through it turns really dark :joy:


#984

Well I don’t think it can be compared. ‘Snowden’ was just a regular movie based on a true event which you already knew the outcome. But still it was a well made movie I think, I would recommend it even though having seen Citizenfour. Citizenfour is - obviously - a whole different kind of thing. It was a documentary and a damn intense one because you are literally with Ed Snowden through it all before and after the leak.

@Quinn I think you should see the movie. As mentioned above it isn’t like the documentary at all, but I don’t think it can be compared.


#985

I just watched Pride and Prejudice and Zombies today with my girlfriend who loves both movies and the tv-show, sadly i have never watched the real deal. I did enjoy the movie and it’s silly and campy take on the famous novel, i think i would enjoy it a lot more if i watched the movies that was more inline with the real story before watching this.


#986

Good looking women wielding swords and killing zombies. What’s not to love. I watched it yesterday too. What a coincidence.


#987

Watched a movie on Netflix last night that my folks suggested called Dale and Tucker vs Evil. It was fucking hilarious! It’s a about a group of teens who mistake a pair of hillbillies for serial killers. Don’t want to say more to spoil it but I highly recommend it.
