Sticking with South Korean cinema.
Memories of Murder
This one is gold, will always reccomend.
If you're going to watch Oldboy, might as well watch the entire vengeance trilogy.
After seeing this last year, I consider it to be my favorite all time crime drama, beating out Se7en and Zodiac even. I'm a Fincher fanboy but this one is spectacular, enough to beat out Finchers top two best imo
south korean cinema is so much better than
all this hollywood stuff.
here are some recommendations
i saw the evil
a bittersweet life
attack the gas station! (really funny)
joint security area
my sassy girl (the original, not that hollywood shit remake)
the vengeance trilogy
well, and many more
Can never go wrong with a classic. Such a good fucked up kinda movie.
This movie is fucking amazing.
Also, Shawshank is lame and overrated.
So is Forest Gump.
The Man From Nowhere is also a really great film. If you liked that one, you might be interested in I Saw the Devil.
Oldboy is great, but try not to overrate it. It is certainly not for everyone.
One dinner party I went to, a conversation started about Oldboy remake. My friend and me were both very vocal about how good the original was, and I completely over-hyped it to my wife, and he did the same to his fiance. We watched as a group the following weekend and both of our partners hated it.
I did the same thing with Galaxy Quest, A New Hope, 12 Monkeys, Blade Runner, Dark City, and The Princess Bride.
OP also loves The Raid(2) and the Battle Royale movies
The American remake had the single-shot hammer battle, and it was done in one take but for some reason that Spike Lee won't disclose they cut it up into smaller chunks.
It also features Elizabeth Olson's tits and ass.
Another great Korean movie on Netflix is The Yellow Sea.
I'm sorry Anon, I'm just used to being an asshole on the internet because everyone is an asshole on the internet. It comes natural.
I just find it hard to understand how someone could watch that movie and think it was good. I went in with very low expectations, but found it didn't even live up to those. The acting was sub-par, the characters were very minimal, the social criticism was simple and easy. The effects are good, but you don't get points for that these days. Most 80's B movies have better plot.
Pic related. She doesn't even show that much cleavage in the movie, either.
Shitty movie. It's obscene and lubricious.
Kechiche is fascinated by Lea Exarchopoulos and you can tell : 90 of the movie is a close-up on her face. The rest is a lubricious pornographic scene of lesbian sex.
Ah, and also a SJW scene where we see some bad homophobic people being homophobic and bad.
See his other movies, like "l'esquive" or "la graine et le mulet". Much, much better !
Look at Roger Ebert over here, describing something as pornographics AND lubricious. We get it, you're refined.
The fact that you got double dubs doesn't negate the fact that Oldboy fucking sucked. One of the worst, and most boring, movies I've ever seen with a "twist" ending that I called within the first half of the movie. Shit was so fucking obvious that they might as well have said it from the get-go.
Jesus Christ, of all shit movies to have inordinate amounts of praise, this is one of the worst.
I didn't say it was the most lubricious movie ever. I just say it's TOO lubricious for the movie it is. There's no point having such a pornographic scene. We can clearly tell that Kechiche wanted to make that scene to please himself.
J'y étais presque !
I'm gonna be that cunt who posts Lynch movies.
Well... uh... now let me explain, I fucking love disaster-porn type movies. I also love sci-fi. Also, my favorite sub-genre of sci-fi is alien invasions. I can admit that my favorite movie isn't exactly what most people would call a really good one. I don't think it's objectively good, but it is my favorite.
Think you're confusing "stage play remake" with "novel that the author was repeatedly requested to turn into a play of several varieties, including Noh, all of which he refused to do."
Oh shit, I forgot this was /b/. I mean, I don't know anything about the topic. You're a fag.
You already read the bad review anon gave it. But in my opinion the movie was great. I didn't care about the sjw or lesbianism, it was beautiful to watch. I watched it daily for a few days after the first I watched it. I guess it's up to each person.
only movie that has truly hit me right in the feels.
If you like A Company Man, I would recommend A Bittersweet Life.
In the name of Mel Gibson and Jesus, I command dubs!
Oldboy, though well filmed, was the most drawn out, padded, load of shit I've seen in a long time. I got love for Chan Wook, but that nigga shoulda cut the runtime by about 45 after the conclusion.
How nigga take down a hallway of guys and get over powered by one of them when they come back with crutches?
there are some good movies in here, but lets not forget the classics
france: les diaboliques, les quatre cent coups
italy: 8 1/2, ladri di biciclette
sweden: persona, wild strawberries
spain: abre los ojos, hable con ella
russia: andrei rublev, Pisma myortvogo cheloveka
denmark: the hunt, Det perfekte menneske, breaking the waves
Germany: aguirre der zorn gottes, paris texas, M
states: sunset boulevard, citizen kane
must watch, a masterpiece.
Agreed insofar as I can't remember the last time anyone brought it up.
Saw in theaters. Interesting story (minus Tesla magic machine. Felt like a copout, but was handled all right), interesting characters, satisfying twist. I recall it all fondly, but it seems that there is never occasion to recall it at all. Weird combination of good and forgettable.
Another russian film contribution.
Both films are amazing.
Best soundtrack I listen to it so often
Best movie I've ever seen.
Surprised no-one has mentioned The Usual Suspects.
Is that the Joseph Gordon Levitt film?
Orchestra music goes back to before movies had sound. The jews had union contracts that perpetuated after movies started being made with sound. You can't just cancel jew contracts, so the music will stay.
The shaky camera is a technique used to mask CG and poor choreography. That's not going away either.
actually this trilogy you dumbfucks
This is probably one of the best animated films you will ever see, and portrays depression in a really weird way.
Watch this movie constantly to give me feels.
not as good as oldboy, but amazing
"It's love Murph"
love = not fake and made up
The best thing about Oldboy in my opinion was the glorious, one shot, fight scene in the hallway.
Quite literally watched it with my mouth open in awe the first time I saw it.
Is there any movie that compares to that?
