Any good movies you can recommend me?

Asked by poisonedantidote (21626points) September 28th, 2010

I’m just looking for a movie to watch, and cant seem to find anything that interests me. do you have any suggestions?

It can be old or new, just try and stay away from formula based movies, as i find i can usually watch the trailer and tell you exactly what its going to be like and how it will end.

I like movies like: fight club, usual suspects, casino, rambo first blood, a few good men. however i also like other kinds of movies. (i tend to stay away from horror movies as i usually end up rooting for the monster)

(i know i have asked a questions like this in the past, so feel free to moderate once i have a few answers if you like, thx)

I just saw Chloe (2009) with Liam Neeson and I would reccommend it. Kind of a mystery movie.

Yess. I love every single movie on @Vunessuh‘s list. That’s a good one.

Many young people have not seen, “The Bridge Over The River Kwai!” A classic!

Midnight Express was out of this world. I even bought the book which is amazingly almost as good as the movie. But where is the book? Lost. I think mostly men would like it
@BoBo1946 Bridge/Kaui was great, no question. A TAD drawn out but a classic no less. (dizzy woman here)

The Shawshank Redemption

You might also enjoy The Big Blue. Note: the preview and synopsis are pretty much worthless.

While it sort of plays out as a one-sided love story, that is a minor part of it. I’d like to get your take on the main character and what you think happens in the end. I’ve never figured it out.

@Aster That movie freaked me out! Very twisted!

Aster's avatar

It WAS freaky, wasn’t it? The background music was so scary!!
I’d like to know who wrote the script.

Godfather I and II

III is ok, but not as good

Deja_vu's avatar

I enjoyed Machete. The Wall Street sequel was good, but doesn’t compare to the original. The American was lame, and Devil had a good premise, unfortately the meat of the film was weak and the characters were weak.

Snatch, Afterschool, RocknRolla, “Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels,” and Se7en…

any movie by Guy Ritchie if you like Fight Club and The Unusual Suspects

The Machinist
Requiem for a Dream

Trainspotting
