  1. Recommended by my software, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954). Quite a fair film with notable moments which continually grow on you.
  2. Polls of critics favorites is one of the best ways to go for this thread question. Polls are better than ratings since it's the same method we come to know the most agreed-on best composers. So the same goes with the most agreed-on best movies. Some films I'd like to watch, many I've seen: 21st century: http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20160819-the-21st-centurys-100-greatest-films All-time: http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20150720-the-100-greatest-american-films
  3. Any good movies where some people are lying to the main character, some people are telling the truth, and you can't tell which is which.
  4. I can spell it more clearly for you. It's not me "not watching high tomatometer films," it's me "watching regardless of what that site says." Ignoring is not an active verb here, it's simply me being distracted by more useful things. Therefore I may watch a lot of high RT movies without knowing, but probably ignore a lot more because there are way more interesting movies to watch. Also, those long quotes Jerry dug up were not really pertanent to this thread question.
  5. Ah so this forum has a lot of Gemini. That would explain the overt traits rampant around here : Strengths 1. Adaptable. Geminis are easy-going and adjustable. 2. Outgoing. Geminis are typically enthusiastic, social beings. They’re the life of the party — talkative, but not annoyingly chatty. 3. Intelligent. The reason Geminis always have interesting things to say is that they’re highly intelligent. Weaknesses 4. Indecisive. Due to their intelligence, Geminis can be overly analytical which can lead to indecisiveness. Don't ask your Gemini friends to pick a Netflix movie; they'll agonize for hours over what to choose. 5. Impulsive and Unreliable. The flipside of the adaptability of Geminis is that they can be flighty and noncommittal. If you make plans with a Gemini, beware; they might cancel on you at the last second. They aren’t mean-spirited; they’re just a little irresponsible. 6. Nosy. The flipside of Geminis' intelligence and curiosity is that they can be nosy. They want to know everything about everyone. It can be exciting when they encourage you to share your deepest secrets or when they're giving you the lowdown on everyone else, but be careful before telling your dirty little secrets to a Gemini—you never know who they might tell them to.
  6. A lot of high tomatometer movies, mostly because that site has zero correlation with the actual quality of a film. I'll third the Marvel thing too.
  7. The only problem I had with that movie was this
  8. David Lynch's stuff is full of pinches everywhere, but with new progressive meaning each time. Probably my favorite example.
  9. Humanity achieves this feat repeatedly as we don't learn from the original fables, histories, stories, (or oftentimes the purpose) these movies were built from, but from the trendy source called Hollywood. We miss the context of why these movies are trending in the first place, and those missing puzzle pieces fill our minds with a sequelitis of circular questions.
  10. French films. After realizing the characters are saying things the least bit intelligible. You'd think they went to school to learn how to talk.
  11. I watch a lot of movies--just haven't seen many old films. These are my favorites... I'm behind on the comedies. My software recommends I watch The Naked Gun, Top Secret!, Mystery Team, and Strange Brew.
  12. Let us first address the title of this thread before answering so vigorously. What is common wisdom?
  13. Oh, so many movies, usually ones that people love. But I usually give them over 5 minutes.
