Why don’t most film loving Media Psychos on this forum like to recommend films to watch when asked?

This thread is very rare.

 

Usually in forums... what people want to do... is recommend "their" movies, not listen recomendations for them.

 

The recommendations of others are just a necessary evil from people who have not seen the light. People "not so cool" that also need to talk and try seem cool. 

 

But not here...., here people ask for recommendations.

 

And that has stunned me. What do you do on these occasions?

 

I had not experienced it before ...

Perhaps we are all just bluffing and not such movie buffs after all, and therefore turn to the next bluffer for some educated screen time advice, not realising they too are a movie bluff, over a movie buff.... 🤔😂

Finished a movie called The House of the Devil 👿... a very slow and subtle film until near the end with a little gore, the lead actress Jocelyn Donahue BEAUTIFUL 💕  

 

Next up a film called The Silencing :)

I liked it. Idk if the members that recommended it actually liked it or they are kidding😅.

 

But It's a good movie. But it can be pretentious

Tenet is in classic territory in my opinion. Had a damn good time seeing it at the movies. For anyone that hasn’t seen it I would give them the disclaimer that it’s more like Inception than The Dark Knight as for as Nolan’s commercial films go. High on concepts & ideas, & in some ways not easy to digest depending on your tastes as a movie watcher. Most people I film talk with are more on the casual viewer side so they would prefer something that is just entertaining. Tenet isn’t just entertaining, it will stay with you after your viewing, because it ask more from you as a viewers.

Don't watch Tenet if Nolan is not your cup of tea. Tenet does have great moments but all in all I thought it was terrible. I think it is good if you look for great spectacle with some cleverness. But if you are looking for action movies that have emotional stakes, well-written dialogue and interesting characters, this is not your movie. And about the sound mixing: Some might argue that it's an artistic choice. But if cinema goers long for English subtitles, there is something wrong with the sound.

I’m with ya @4kiraL, I do enjoy Nolan’s Batman’s, however this one is waaayyy out of my league...

 

it is unfortunate for me, as I think this could have been a good “Mission Impossible/Borne Identity”  style flik! ;)

Tenet is amazing, a masterpiece In my opinion. It's an experience and  it's ok if you dont understand it the message is still there. It's about what happens has happened you cant change the past but it's not an excuse to not act to move forward and do better it's about friendship and sacrifice and finding ones self. Nolan doesnt treat his audience like idiots he made a smart movie for people to watch multiple times and learn from. As for the music it's amazing, so what its loud just put on subtitles. 2001 a space odyssey hardly has dialogue and is also hard to explain but its held in such high regards. Annihilation, arrival, even inception are all hard to understand logically but people like them so why complain about this film it's literally no different. I just think people are mad they cant understand it. And dont get me started on character development theres practically none in dunkirk or 1917 and people loved those movies. Other movies that film fans love but not critically acclaimed are the house that jack built, melancholia, neon demon, and only god forgives. Now those films aren't for everyone but its better than the simpleton trash coming out most of the time and there all hard to understand. Tenet is complicated but an entertaining experience with more emotion and feel than people give it credit. It has an amazing and very interesting concept. Also the great cinematography, score, and practical effects. So if you can defend movies like 2001, donnie darko, and many others then you can defend tenet.

I can defend Tenet but I don't have to. The argument "If you like X, it follows that you should like Y" makes no sense to me. I can like or dislike movie X for a ton of different reasons that have nothing to do with movie Y. I do not judge people for liking or disliking Tenet. But it seems you are judging me for you don't even know me at all as you seem to make the assumption that I didn't understand the film. Anyway, just because the movie is complicated, doesn't mean I am obligated to feel positive towards it. And it works the other way around as well: Just because a film is "simpleton trash", as you called it, doesn't mean it is per se to be disliked.

 

You have legit reasons to like Tenet and I have legit reasons to dislike it. Since every humans perception is different, who am I to tell others what to like?

Doesn’t meet my weather being gloomy, rainy type vibe today ;)

 

...in the mood for subtle gothic horror (not gore though) or crime drama/mystery types 🧛‍♂️🔪

 

Maybe I can help you out.

 

For Horror there have been some great Horror Flicks in the past few years as torture porn and Jump Scare reliant movies seem to decline. I can recommend Robert Eggers movies (The Witch, The Lighthouse) which are quite artsy and if you haven't seen it yet, watch Hereditary (just a little bit of gore), which in its core is a very tense family tragedy in the guise of a horror movie. Also It follows and Under the Skin meet the criteria of subtle horror very well.

 

For Crime/Mystery I usually suggest Murder on the Orient Express (1974) and Witness for the Prosecution, both very charming Agathe Christie movies that have phenomenal endings.

You guys act like because I said simpleton trash that meant movies you liked though I didnt name any. I think you all know what I meant when I say alot of movies that come out today are passionless money grabbers created by companies and not artist but that doesnt mean there all bad. And I didnt judge you I said alot of people didnt like it because they dont understand it I never mentioned your name there are a few people here who disliked the movie. Why do you assume I'm solely addressing you? And yes you can dislike tenet for multiple reasons but I only mentioned one, and that was peoples complaint that its complicated but love  other films that are also complicated and not understood. Never said if you like 2001 you should like tenet,only that if you dont like somthing because you dont understand it then how can you like something else you dont understand for solely that reason and no other.
