(Long): Can you recommend some movies to me, based off of the movies and TV that I like?

Asked by poisonedantidote (21539 points ) December 16th, 2012

I think this is the 3rd or 4th time I have asked this question, every time I ask I get given great movies to watch.

I do use websites that track my likes and ratings and dislikes, but I still find people make much better judges of taste.

Seeing as I get such good results, I thought I would provide a little more information this time, and also invite you to provide your favorite movies and dislikes, so that others may @yourname recommend things to suit your tastes, and maybe if we are lucky we can get a big collection of names of good movies to watch.

So, here goes… based on the movies and TV shows that I like, can you recommend any movies or perhaps other TV shows I would like?

What are your top favorite movies, and what movies do you like?
