    Movies and things — all welcome.

    Okay, I’m sure we will just start talking movies after a while and that is just fine, but to start us out and for any new-comers to the thread, here are my questions:

    1. What are your 5 top picks for the most quality films. I’m talking about ones that you would argue with critics over. If you care to tell us a bit of why, then please do.

    2. What are your top 5 go-to favorites and why.

    LOVE THIS!

    Huge movie fan.

    Top 5 quality picks:

    1.) Blade Runner 2049
    2.) Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King
    3.) One Hour Photo
    4.) I, Tonya
    5.) The Matrix

    What I would say here is that Blade Runner 2049 upstaged the awesome original. Also, One Hour Photo so encapsulates the creep/loner dynamic.

    Top 5 Go To Favorites:

    1.) Hunt For the Red October - Fantastic thriller
    2.) Jacobs Ladder - psychological horror that inspired Silent Hill
    3.) The Empire Strikes Back
    4.) First Contact - The best Star Trek movie ever made, action, and great story.
    5.) Saving Private Ryan - War, on screen.

    All the best about horror, sci-fi and non-linear time flows for me :)

    Quality picks from scifi/nonlinear stories area: Matrix, Shutter Island, Donnie Darko, The Moon, Fight Club, Terminator series (if you imagine the idea behind it not only the immediate action), Triangle, Time Lapse etc.

    From horror/scary area: The Others, Room 1408, Lost Room (mini series), Insidious, As Above So Below (got a lot to think about my fears and meaning of that phrase). Actually I've been watching almost everything in this area so I'm retarded and can't see what else there could be :)

    Movies to go? No exact plans and I'm a bit confused about that as I don't know any more what to expect as it looks like everything's done already in area of my taste :) Just a retarded jerk I guess..

    5 top quality films:
    - LOTR - All NFPs will melt over the cinematography of this one. A whole world discovered with the push of a button.
    - Spirit stallion of the Cimarron - God, this one is absolutely phenomenal, how could I relate so much to a drawn horse? It's a beautiful story, animation is amazing, this movie has a soul and a meaning. Recommended!
    - Amelie - The music peace always moves me. This movie has an important message of individuality.
    - The Hunt (Jagten) - A very much unknown Danish film, but certainly one of the best I've ever seen, starring one of my favorite actors Mads Mikkelsen, the cinematography is amazing, and the story is so realistic and intriguing that I can't help but feel everything the character does as the story unfolds. Highly recommended!
    - 90s Disney movies - Lion King, Little mermid, Toy Story, Tarzan. All archetypal and are an essential part of my childhood.

    5 go to films - these are just as good if not better than the prior 5, since they never get old:
    - Pirates of the Caribbean - The best movie ever made bar none. The acting, music, setting and story are captivating me every time.
    - Blade Runner 2049 - This movie is layered in so many ways, it looks like a regular pop movie when you first encounter it, but it has a lot of archetypal themes and the acting, especially of Jared Leto, is phenomenal. I've watched it 4 times since it came out and still discover new details with every watch. I've posted more on the architecture thread in the NF forum.
    - Inglorious Bastards - Love all of the performances, humor and the story. And the last act is the icing on the cake. Salute to Tarantino!
    - Interstellar - Matthew McConaughey is probably my favorite actor, layered story which makes me think for days. You should check True Detective, best series ever and his best performance.
    - Whiplash - The performances are amazing, music is great, and can't get enough of seeing J.K. Simmons act like an asshole.

    Unpopular opinion but whenever a friend or... Ex-partner suggested rewatching the original LOTR trilogy it seemed like hell. I know! It doesn't make sense! How could I NOT love the high fantasy epic that influenced most of the things I love today (especially dungeons and dragons!) to which I say, I dunno, I just find myself falling asleep whilst watching it. Still, props to the one line "I am no man" because that gives me happy shivers but literally the only thing I can remember still in the third movie?

    Anyway, we're not here to hate, but it was mentioned twice, I couldn't help myself.

    Quality movies:

    • Which Edgar Wright movie do I choose? Baby Driver? Scott Pilgrim? Hot Fuzz? I love all his movies and his style is excellent. His editing it something to be marveled at and his sense of comedy is refreshing. Everything just feels so polished in his movies. I guess, personally, I love Scott Pilgrim the most but it's not necessarily his best film.
    • Wall-E, such a beautiful film. I admire a lot of Pixar animations, Up is... up there too.
    • Your Name, an anime film but don't reject it based on that alone. It's stunning, visually, conceptually and it really took my breath away. I recommend it to everyone regardless of their taste.
    • Pans Labyrinth, few films manage to truly capture the dark fairytales that I love in such a way as this. Of course the trope of the child discovering a magical world is one I tend to get drawn to the most but Guillermo del Toro's visual style is also so awesome that I've seriously been considering tattooing the fairy design from that movie although perhaps it's a little too much on the creepy side for some... None of his other movies quite hit the mark as this one did but I still admire everything he does. His creativity is unbound and it's wonderful to witness.

    And I cannot think of a fifth... Although I can easily put Amelie up there too.

    My go to movies? Based on the fact I've rewatched them and it still fills me with emotions:

    • How to Train Your Dragon, I have rewatched the friendship scene a thousand times, you cannot tell me that is not a beautiful way of telling a story.
    • Call Me By Your Name
    • Love Simon — what? Two gay movies? It's like I have an obsession, at the very least love, Simon doesn't leave me feeling a strange sense of futility.
    • Harry Potter movies... it's almost Christmas, these are my Christmas movies, nostalgia will never fade with these.
    • Thor Ragnarok. Sometimes we take life too seriously, Taika Watiti reminds me how great silliness is. It's a marvel film, sure, but, hey, I never promised this list was classic.

    I refrained from putting Disney movies on my list but of course I'll never say no to any friend wanting to rewatch it with me.

    Whiplash was amazing too. You have good taste maybe I'll have to look up these other films that I haven't seen...

    I'm inclined to agree, but also I was someone who had to watch the original the week before seeing 2049 in cinema, so, consider me too uncultured to agree. It's so difficult being a decent judge when you watch a game changer after you have seen all the children that were created after it. Maybe 2049 was better but I guess the original almost created the Western cyberpunk genre so it's difficult to beat that.

    @Falling Foxes I love Wall-E, Your Name (7 sx duh), Harry Potter and Thor Ragnarök for exactly the same reasons. I like Baby Driver too, great music choices in there.

    top 5 quality picks

    1)Bad Samaritan love this movie mainly for David Tennant's Performance as a serial killer
    2) Star Trek Beyond the actors really brought across the friendship and the loyalty one would hope to see from a crew serving in deep space together
    3) Stargate with out this movie we wouldn't have had the fantastic tv series Stargate
    4) home alone 2, this and the first one had that awesome Christmas feeling that I don't get from a lot of other Christmas movies
    5) Christmas vacation another Christmas movie that gives that Christmas feel and a good number of laughs too

    my go to favourites

    LOTR: best cinematography, story of friendship and I love these movies so much I own the extended edition

    Harry Potter cause who doesn't need a little magic in their lives?

    Raiders of the lost Ark : Cause its just one awesome adventure

    Star trek First contact

    Indiana jones and the last crusade : mostly again for the adventure

    and a bonus

    Star Trek The Search for Spock shows how far someone can go for a friend risking everything :)

    INFJ

    My list goes like this:

    1) Hidden Dragon Crouching Tiger - this movie is just breathtaking for me. The picture is really beautiful, placed in somehow unreal world, although the dramas and feelings of the characters are very realistic. The main character can be more INFJ, proud and tormented of doing the right thing. And those scenes when they fight in bamboo forest, so beautiful to watch.
    2) Life is Beautiful - I am pretty convinced that Roberto Benigni is ENFP. He brings so much optimism even in the worst period of human history. He saved his son not just physically, but also mentally, and gave all us hope at the end. When the innocent child gets out of the dark ready to play, so simple scene but so powerful.
    3) Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain - the Amelie manages to deal with/overcome her fears, preserve her goodnes and fight for the right cause. I love everything about her.
