I’ve never watched a movie that wasn’t directed by Martin Scorsese. What are the best movies that were not directed by Martin Scorsese?
Well, for me, Martin Scorsese is highly overrated, so almost every other movie has the chance to be better
reservoir dogs although i find tarantino in general to be quite overrated
The Godfather, and if you like Scorsese then you’ll like all three of the Godfather films.
Any movie that doesn’t have the Mexico orange or Eastern Europe bluish grey filter.
That and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
The Shawshank Redemption is probably my favourite movie of all time
Does this mean you haven’t seen Top Gun?
Tbh, I recently started watching movies that weren’t made by Scorsese and I’m trying to make a list of movies that I still have to watch.
So far I’ve watched:
- Every Harry Potter Film
- Every Rocky/Creed Film
- Every Star Wars Film
- Every Live Action Batman Film
- Every Live Action Superman Film
Please Note: I’m only talking about live action films I’ve never watched. When it comes to animated films, I’m a huge disney fan.
Based on your list I think It’s time to try a comedy and a non violent drama.
Maybe try Blades of Glory and Love Actually.
The '54 original Godzilla
The original Star Wars Trilogy
Godfather part II
Empire Strikes Back
Might as well watch the first one first. It won Best Picture, and best Actor as well as one other, maybe adapted screenplay. It also had 3 people nominated for best supporting actor (Caan, Pacino, and Duvall) who all cancelled each other’s votes out and a non godfather actor won. Part 2 also won best picture, best director, best supporting actor (DeNiro) but Pacino lost again (this time he was up for best actor), continuing the worst Oscar tradition ever where people (mostly men but sometimes women) lose when they should win and then get one years later when they maybe shouldn’t have (he won for Scent of a Woman, largely considered his “make up” win since he got robbed for Godfather2).
No Country For Old Men
There Will Be Blood
Apocalypse Now (Final Cut)
This reminded me about Daniel Day Lewis. The OP should see a bunch of films he is in. Phantom Thread is my favourite, but Last of the Mohicans, Gangs of New York, and There Will be Blood are all excellent, as is Lincoln.
I still need to watch A LOT of movies. Still, of the ones I’ve watched, these I say are among the best of all time:
- The Shawshank Redemption
- One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
- Terminator 2: Judgement Day
- Raiders of the Lost Ark
I haven’t watched much movies, and if only, then comedies. One I saw and loved were Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, both with amazing Simon Pegg.
You should check out The World’s End too. It’s the final of that spiritual trilogy.
