Movies / Series

RexXxie
Hey guys :P
So since I've seen Mangas / Animes and I don't really watch that kind of stuff, I've wondered why not just making the same topic - but for movies and series :D The idea is basically just to write one good movie or series at a time - no more than one :P
And also write a short review of the movie or of the series!
I though the least I could do was posting a bit on the forums since I can't play until Wednesday (Having final exams :P)
So I'll just straight start off ;)

Predestination - the probably most brainf***ed movie you will ever see ;D
It's about a time travelling agent who prevents crimes to be done - and I could spoiler you only one thing at it will destroy the whole movie...but I won't, since we aren't on 9gag and I'm not one of those kinds of people <3
So have fun watching that movie - and tell me how you liked it after you watched it :P
Have Fun!
NOTE: Only watch it if you have strong nerves ;P

Why not have this thread in the Off-Topic section? It would be cool if anyone can post and see other people's choices...

agree with Mr.Yeah.

@Rexxxie: i ll add it to my list cause i really love mindfuck movies :)

Here is mine: gone girl: Also some kind of mindfuck and cant tell too much cause i dont want to spoil. But basically a man's wife has disappeared and he is accused of her murder. If you like movies with a good plot you will love this one :)

V for Vendetta isn't very mindf*king, imo.
I'll write something in secret text now that could spoiler the movie Predestination so don't open it if you don't want to see the spoiler :P
He's not only his own daughter/son but also wife and father XD...it's rly fked up because nearly all the persons he's together with in the movie is himself D:

Now I'll go on with some series
Game of Thrones (2011)
The Walking Dead (2010)
Breaking Bad (2008)
Sherlock (2010)
House Of Cards (2013) <- Only if you like politics :)

Yeah...I don't think I need to say anything to them...just watch an episode and then you'll love it :P

Two more very interesting movies:
Lord of war (based on a true story, but changed in a very american way [subject is weapon trade])
Wag the dog (American politics...)

Both good movies (maybe you can guess now, that i dont really like America ^^)

About series: i can recommend Babylon 5, if you like science fiction, which is (mostly scientifically possible), has a great story line (beginning at the end of the first season) and very interesting developement of the characters. (It has not the good/evil view on things, but different perspectives.)

Dexter is a very good series :)
I've watched a bit of it but I'm at this point where I'm kinda stuck and I don't feel like going on ):

Another very good movie is World War Z, it's a movie about the apocalypse happening :P

@rexxxie: Dexter is nice until season 4 but after it s not that good imo.
                  WWZ isnt taht good, just a normal movie in my opinion ^^
i ve seen all the tv show you said :D

@rambo: i liked your movies recommandation, specially pulp fiction ( i will leave this one to vega :3 )

@r3v: seen lord of war, and indeed it s really interesting and captivating! (but true about america.... )
 about babylon 5: does it got some actions in it? can you tell me more about it? :)

about tv shows: here are 2 of my favorite that you may not know:

first one is sense8: i dont really know how to describe it, but what made me fall in love with it is the mix of culture that are bring together, it s also show you different living-phylosophie etc.. (ik it isnt spelled correctly :3). The director are the same as matrix's ones, you know the 2 brothers (forgot their name)
ABout the story: 8 people around the whole world get connected and start to speak toneach other in their mind and share their skills. Well, sounds a bit "classic" but you should really check it out :)  

The 2nd one is jessica jones: really dark, marvel universe but not too much power stuff (still some)
Some dark humours sometimes, was kinda disappointed with the end of the season but still worth to watch it (at least watch the first episode and you will know what i m talking about when i say "dark")

And like rexxxie said; if you didnt watch sherlock holmes go now. 3-4 episodes by season each of 1h30. Really good :D

@Juri: Babylon5 sure has some action (at the guinness world record book for its space battles)... but it is also a lot of politics. It is about a space station under human jurisdiction which is built to preserve peace among the space faring races. (this somehow fails, but i dont want to spoil too much^^)
At the beginning, most of the plot is viewed from perspective of the humans, but that slightly changes during the series.

Thanks for moving this thread
Now I feel bad not having posted in there...
:(Per):pyrrho wrote
other movies with a wtf effect
I'm surprised The Usual Suspects (1995) has not been mentioned in that thread yet.
I guess you could also add The Game (1997) to that list (and a lot of David Fincher's work, but it's already been cited more than once here)

and oh, well

Here is a korean movie: Old Boy (2003)
"Rotten Tomatoes wrote
tale of revenge.
Violent, strange, powerful and definitely not for the squeamish.
 I guess that's about right
