Chappie. On the surface it seems to be just a funny movie about a robot, but I really like these stories about AI. Found it satisfying.

Black Mirror. This is proper classic "what if" scifi. Anthology series like Twilight Zone was, with a brand new story every episode. But dealing with topics of modern and future tech. So good.

Earth 2. Really loved this show. It's one of these introspective scifi stories. They do those morose contemplative voiceovers every episode, I can never get enough of that feeling. My only complaint is it ended. It deserved more.

Leverage. This one is more upbeat and exciting. Totally fun. They manipulate everyone in sight. There are 5 seasons so there's plenty to keep you stimulated for a while. I laughed a lot.

Sometimes boredom is because of a lack of expression. Maybe writing a screenplay would be more fun than watching movies.

Here are some not mentioned yet:

Inception <--- more mentally stimulating than "mind F*ck"
The Machinist
Requiem for a Dream
Mr. Nobody <--- also more mentally stimulating than "mind F*ck"
13 Conversations about the same thing
Trainspotting
The book of Eli
Any David Lynch movie

Edit: Also, I haven't seen A monster Calls, but I read the book and I found it very intense. : )
