That's the thing I hate about Netflix... they don't give you many ways to search their database for movies you might like. They put way too much stock in their algorithm for showing you what you might like and miss a bunch. I have not seen Coherence. Looks good. Thanks! :thumbup:

The thing about this movie is you miss a lot on first viewing.

Sin signalling. I hated Lord of the Rings too.

I might be sore because ET came out in the same year and eclipsed the far superior alien film The Thing, possibly the greatest horror film ever made. I've watched that at least 10 times.


Well, you got proposed already so I really dont care.

The thing is ~ for me its not about some film quality I dunno how to assess, its about morals of the story. That is why I wanna stay infantile, not to get distracted by qualities and realities but stay naive and true.

Related to the topic of virtue signally super-jews, I hope you've checked out some of Jordan Peterson's stuff on the youtubes. The best parts are when he chokes up talking about the importance of Disney's Pinocchio.

Coherence isn't available for streaming. Doh!

I got another one!

La Dernière femme L'Ultima donna - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075364/ or The Last Woman.

And do you know why? When I was watching it for the first time, I was waiting when she gets naked, and the moment she did I was lighting a cig and missed it. Fucking 1.5 hour and at the end he cut his dick. Last woman.

Guardians of the Galaxy.

For some reason I can watch it over and over again. Probably because the score works so well, it's brainless and takes itself seriously not at all.

Also

A Zed And Two Noughts

The Cook, The Thief, The etc etc

Pretty much all Greenaway.



Lucky this thread isn't aimed at children, whose rewatchability threshhold is depressingly low.

I must admit I'm jealous of the long rewatch lists...I can troll Amazon Video and Netflix for far too long before finding something interesting.....mind you Nordic crime thrillers seem on the rise. :D

That is the utility of Netflix.

Feel like watching a movie?

Turn on Netflix, flip through unappealing pap for 10 minutes. Go do something productive for the other 90 minutes you would have spent watching a movie.

Movies are usually too short for interesting character development. Torrent this

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
The Holy Grail
Brasil

@laklak--ditto the film noir in general, and my 1st entry was Chinatown, which is one, or it's an homage, or whatever, even has John Huston in it FFS.

@PensivePenny And ditto Being John Malkovich.

The thing for me is even these I can't rewatch them all that often, I will get sick of them at some point. It's a bit like music, there are very few songs that I can hear over and over again without getting sick of them, radio has soured some songs for me for years. But, I can definitely listen to songs repeatedly to a much greater degree than watching movies.

Does anyone enjoy Everything Wrong With [XXX--insert movie title], the guy is pretty knowledgable and I seldom disagree with any of his putdowns, and of course he's damn funny. This is one I haven't seen, which I will remedy right after posting this.

I thought The Deer Hunter was one of the emotionally powerful movies that I've ever seen, I couldn't look away, but I don't want to see it again.
