I'm going to attempt a movie a day for as long as I can. Any suggestions?
Posted 4/28/17 , edited 4/28/17
I'm already five days into the challenge. Here are the five movies I've watched so far:

#1 - Kes
#2 - 12 Angry Men
#3 - Anatomy of a Murder
#4 - Badlands
#5 - Man Bites Dog

Any suggestions for what I should watch next?

12 Angry Men is really good.

I'm not big into movies and I imagine you've seen all of the ones i'm about to list, but I'll list my favorites because, why the heck not?

Alien : An obvious classic with probably the best directing and atmosphere that I've ever seen in a film.

American History X : A really well made movie with a realistic view on racism. I can't talk much about this because it's really better experienced without knowing much about it.

Casino : Way way way way better than Goodfellas, my favorite Martin Scorsese movie I've seen(I've seen Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Casino, and The Departed for reference). Really underrated honestly.

Mary and Max : I haven't seen this in forever, and honestly for how sad this is I probably shouldn't have watched this when I did. I was BIG into this film around 10 to 12 because I randomly found it on Netflix and loved it. It's about two penpals with various mental disorders, it's an indie film that uses claymation, and it's one of the best things I've seen if I recall correctly. As a kid I actually was really close to a lot of people with said mental disorders, so I guess it helped me understand things a bit ... but now I would probably get the film even more.

Moon : A really really good Sci Fi movie about a man who works on the Moon. Again, this is better going in with little knowledge of the material, but it's worth noting how impressive the sets and directing is for the small budget of 5 Million dollars. This is more of a subtle genre than what you might expect out of most of the Sci Fi genre.

The Never Ending Story : Now I should absolutely prefice that A ) This IS a kid's film and B ) This is one I probably haven't seen in 8 years. But from what I remember and the various clips I've seen on youtube over the year, this is a really endearing, depressing, well acted children's film, with some of the best atmosphere and setting I've seen in a film. It's so imaginative, the entire movie feels like you're caught in some kind of weird never-ending dream turned nightmare.


Also if we're getting into SUPER obvious territory : Mad Max 2 : Road Warrior and Stars Wars : The Empire Strikes Back are the best sequels I've ever seen. Oh, and skip Mad Max, the first film. It's garbage. Hope this helps!

I have seen Alien, American History X, Casino (btw, I think it's time for you to revisit Raging Bull, haha), and Moon.

Though I have not seen Mary and Max, I have heard of it through a friend, though I haven't gotten around to seeing it. I'll check it out soon!

I haven't seen The Never Ending Story, and it doesn't matter if it's a kid's film, there are plenty great family/kids movies. I might check it out.

Raging Bull is hot garbagio. Talk about pretentious.

I figured that maybe you weren't into films much , or that you were ok with revisiting some, which is why I listed some obvious ones(a bit surprised you've seen Casino and Moon though).


The Muppets in Manhattan is also a really good kid's film tbh.

I have seen almost all of Scorsese's films. His most popular films, that is.

What's your opinion of Taxi Driver?

I haven't seen it. I've seen a very small amount of films, and even then I think a lot of the "good ones" are totally overrated (Scarface, Raging Bull, Thelma and Louise omg shoot me). So I can't comment on it. Honestly, this type of movie recommendation thread suits me a lot more than you it seems, considering I haven't even seen a rocky movie haha

Well, at least we can agree on something. Scarface is the poster boy for overrated schlock.

Who knows, I could change my opinion on raging bull. But yeah, besides the bathroom scene, Scarface is completely unredeemable.

Have you seen Trainspotting btw?

I haven't; I've been putting it off for the longest time. I heard it's great though! I'll put that on my list.

I was going to include that in my original post because it's one of my absolute favorites, since first watch! It's one of those 90's films that was fairly popular but was brushed aside a bit too much, I'd put it up there with(and above, might I add) Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction.

This will probably be my last post because me spamming your thread is just bothersome, but hey, at least I gave you 3 films!(kind of) xD

Pulp Fiction is another great movie; I can't say the same thing about Reservoir Dogs. Though, if you're a fan of Tarantino, I guess it's essential viewing, haha.

I've only seen Resevoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and ... Jackie Brown. What a career.

Pulp Fiction is the only one above average imo

I'd recommend Kill Bill if you liked his style. It's more of a style over substance kind of movie. Still a really fun watch!
