Title: Movies and TV shows (general recommendation thread)
Post by: Liberty on January 24, 2019, 08:22:12 AM
I figured I'd try starting a thread about movies and TV shows that you liked enough to recommend.

General rule of thumb would be, only post about it if you think it's better than 75% of what you've seen in the past couple years (obviously there's no way to enforce that, but I'm just trying to avoid having the thread flooded by everything people are watching).

Please tell us a little about what the thing is and why you like it.

I'll start.

I watched 'The Death of Stalin' (2017) yesterday and really enjoyed it. It's definitely not for everyone, it's pretty dark satire, but I think the minority of people who will like it will really like it. It's kind of similar to some of what the Coens bros do, but talkier, kind of like if Aaron Sorkin wrote dialogue for a Coens movie, with a few bursts of Tarantino violence.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4686844/

Interestingly, after seeing it I looked up a few things and while there's obviously a lot of fiction, it's not as fictionalized as one might think. They even had to tone down a few things because the reality would've seemed unbelievable on screen, apparently.

If you see it and want more, there's an interview with the writer here: https://www.newyorker.com/podcast/political-scene/armando-iannucci-on-the-death-of-stalin/

I just rewatched "Skins", the TV show about Bristol teens with dysfunctional families.  It's quite brilliant, but be warned that there's a lot of swearing, sex-related content, and casual drug use, and the plotlines are often extreme and sometimes dark.  It's not for someone who gets easily offended.

Detectorists (Seasons 1-3) Hulu
Kim's Convenience (Season 1-2) NFLX - Season 3 on CBC
Succession (Season 1) HBO
Killing Eve (Season 1) Hulu
Little Drummer Girl - Michael Shannon was excellent

Flash from the past
Spaced (Seasons 1-2) Hulu and Amazon

Cool new feature on Google is that for many TV shows and movies the search results include where it's available for streaming.

Cautionary notice: my taste is highly idiosyncratic, so likely my recommendations will do nothing for you.

Theoretically all my ratings are publicly available at: https://www.imdb.com/user/ur2779520/ratings?sort=your_rating,desc&ratingFilter=0&mode=detail&ref_=undefined&lastPosition=0 ( if this does not work, this might: https://www.imdb.com/user/ur2779520/ratings?ref_=nv_usr_rt_4 - this is chronological ).

No very recent movies at 9 or 10 rating.
GLOW is 9: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5770786/?ref_=rt_li_tt
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is 9

There are couple recent movies at 8 rating ( LBJ, Snowden, Rush, Dallas Buyers Club, Fury, Dirty Money, Red Sparrow ).

----------------

I'm definitely gonna watch "The Death of Stalin".  8)

My all time favorite series which I will rewatch at some point:

OZ
Firefly
Fargo
Six Feet Under
Deadwood
The Office (US)
The Wire
The Sopranos
Breaking Bad
Better Call Saul
Black Mirror
Game of Thrones

I can't resist to mention a few others as well so here it goes: F is for Family, Dark, Westworld, Bojack Horseman, Sons of Anarchy, Archer, Battlestar Gallactica, Rick & Morty, Seinfeld, Arrested Development, True Detective S01, Stranger Things, Peaky Blinders, House of Cards, Mindhunter, Killing Eve, Master of None, Parks & Rec (first seasons), Hannibal, Orange is the New Black, Luther, Shameless, Family Guy, La Casa de papel, Homeland (first seasons), Mad Men (first 5 seasons), Twin Peaks, Billions, Community, Hannibal, Godless, The Shield, Skins, Boardwalk Empire, Curb Your Enthousiasm, The Deuce, Fringe, Entourage, Californication, The Killing (EU version), The Inbetweeners, Band of Brothers, The People vs OJ Simpson, Freaks and Geeks, Big Little Lies, Misfits, Luther, Spaced, Couples, Fawlty Towers.

Currently looking to start watching The Mechanism, Gomorrah and Rome in the coming months. I've become very selective in what I watch as it has become impossible to stay up to date with everything you might like. Generally after one or two episodes I know whether I'll like it or not. For example I recently stopped halfway through episode 1 of Lucifer as it felt cheap with mediocre acting and a lousy story.

In my defense, I never watch "regular tv" or sports. Cut the cable a long time ago! Honestly started as a small list but when you start thinking about it, hard to stop... Probably forgetting plenty worth mentioning but I'd start with those listed at the top. Can't miss with those! I know it's not really the point of the topic but I guess it is not a bad reference list for people looking for a good show to watch. Also left out all documentaries etc here.

If I do the same for films I won't be able to ever stop so I won't. But I'll maybe post some films that are less well-known soon.
Title: Re: Movies and TV shows (general recommendation thread)
Post by: tombgrt on January 24, 2019, 10:02:36 AM
Films I've actually (re)watched recently that were very good:

Being There - Hilarious oldie
Bad Boy Bubby - very dark, especially the first few minutes. odd but funny
Call me by your name - great soundtrack, atmosphere (a summer in France in a little town...), acting
Edge of Tomorrow - love time travel movies. Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt do a great job together. very good action scenes
Get Out - just watch it!
Perfect Strangers (Perfetti Sconosciuti)
Sleep Tight (Mientras Duermes)
The Hidden Face (La Cara Oculta) - I don't want to spoil anyhting about these. Just watch!
Timecrimes (Los Cronocrimenes) - another time travel movie. Less known than some others but definitely worth it.

Enjoy!

In Amazon video:
The man in the high castle
Viking
Jack Ryan
Hannibal
Home fires
Downtown Abbey
Endevour
White Chapel

Yes, I am a sucker for British TV

Netflix:
Dogs of Berlin
The Vietnam War ( Ken Burns)
Bodyguard
House of Cards
Peaky Blunders
Battle star Galactica series
Fargo ( both the series and the Original movie)
Lock, Stock and two smocking barrels
No country for old men

As memorable movies, I enjoyed Wes Anderson Moonrise Kingdom and Grand Budapest Hotel as well as most Coen Brother movies . I also enjoyed the Starwars flics Rogue One and the Last Jedi

For me, The Death of Stalin started pretty well but then became a bit too distressing as the story progressed and turned darker and I could no longer tell what was parody and what was not.  Maybe that was the point, but anyway. 

Drive (2011) was an excellent recent find.

The Last Jedi (2017) was pretty controversial among Star Wars fans (unsurprisingly) but I liked it.  I’ve met certain heroes/legends in real life and I thought the film gave a pretty honest depiction of what it means to be one.

In the interview I link, the writer/director says that they didn't want to make fun of any of the real atrocities, since this is based on true events, so every time there's killing and torture and such, they play it straight. But once it's behind closed doors with the politicians, then the farce takes over.

That makes sense.  I generally thought it was a lot more serious than what one might expect from a black comedy film.  Viewers should calibrate their expectations going in - because it isn't another Dr. Strangelove.

That's correct. I was also surprised (I didn't know much about it going on), but it actually increased my enjoyment because I think it's important that we get reminders once in a while of just how vile these regimes were. Historical distance and the death of first-hand victims is making it all more fuzzy over time...

Somehow we've watched none of the same Amazon Prime Video shows.

My faves are Sneaky Pete S1 (kind of a mix between Justified and some Breaking Bad elements (produced by Brian Cranston and some Justified guys), Patriot S1 (LOVED this one, couldn't get into S2 yet), and Marvellous Mrs. Maisel (don't let the flowery title scare you, I really enjoyed S1 and can't wait to check out S2 -- it's written by Amy Sherman Palladino, of Gilmore Girls fame, but this is more adult and kind of Mad Men vibe in production level).

I've really gotten into the British mysteries, Endeavor, Inspector Lewis, Shetland, and Foyle's War. Acting is superb, probably all Shakespearean trained actors.

Sopranos
Californication
Nip/Tuck
Damages
Mad Men
Eastbound and Down

I don't watch much tv and it takes a lot for me to get into stuff. Honorable mentions but not stuff I'd really be able to rewatch were Boardwalk Empire, The Wire, House of Lies, Dexter, Vice Principals. Currently trying to force myself to stay with Billions, and giving Black Monday a chance. Homeland had big potential but I totally got bored with it after Season 3.

Some that haven't been mentioned here already.

Berlin station on Epix. Spy stuff. Good scripts and very good acting.

Vikings on netflix. Simple comedy but funny as hell. I also enjoyed Narcos on Netflix. Very good production imo.

Btw, if you enjoy Berlin Station or spy stuff, I suggest you also check out A Most Wanted Man. Great spy movie and I think Phillip Seymour Hoffman's last before he passed.

I thought 'The Death of Stalin' was hilarious, loved it.  None of my friends agree.

The Expanse is possibly the best sci-fi series I have ever seen.

Watched Zombieland about 7 times. It's a completely nerdy stupid cult movie.

The Man in the high castle is really good, though depressing.  Babylon Berlin is also quite good.

Just of top of my head...

Movies:

Ex Machina (slow sci-fi thriller)
The Social Network (Aaron Sorkin & David Fincher)
Burn after Reading (Coen Brothers)
The Imitation Game (Alan Turing Biopic)
Black Swan
Whiplash (like Black Swan about an obsessed artist)

Series:
Startup (not mentioned yet? It's about a cryptocurreny Startup. But like Social Network it is not really about the technology, it is more about the persons involved and the relationships between them if that makes any sense. Really liked it.

Season 1 of the Expanse really impressed me. It felt on par with the best sci-fi ever (early Battlestar Galactica reboot). But I think after season 1 the writing quality goes down a lot and many characters suddenly become quite different from what they were early on, and more 2D.

Viking is in my opinion the best show on television
Black Mirror
Planet Earth 2 and Blue Planet 2
First season of True Detective
House of Cards (UK version)
Yes, Minister (this is the greatest political comedy ever)

Movies:
Get Out - Pscyhological Thriller that is so Intelligent - the twist at the end is a neat surprise worth waiting for
Imitation Game - biography of Alan Turing - using math and computers to solve encryption in war time; role of homophobia in recent history

TV Series:
Breaking Bad - Plot of a generally good, very bright individual trying to help his family that crosses a fine line and evolves into another character; great exposure to societal price of illicit drugs and effects on young, old, men and women; good musical score; Worth watching entire series second time
True Detective - Season 1 - Takes about 10 episodes to solve the crime - so not all neatly tied up in 1 hour like a usual TV series. Season 2 is completely different story and not in the same Class. The redeeming feature of Season 2 is the music of Leonard Cohen.
Silicon Valley - Comedy/Drama of life as a start up company in Silicon Valley

If you liked Get Out (as I did) and Lakieith Stanfield (as I do) - he's in 'Get Out' and hilarious in 'Atlanta' - you might enjoy a movie we saw over the holidays called "Sorry to Bother You." 

Written and directed by Boots Riley, a first time filmmaker, it is pretty entertaining for a debut.  It's not polished like 'Get Out' though.

My Brother-in-law is one of those voting/nominating members for the film awards shows, so our family holidays have become a kind of mini film festival with 20-30 academy screeners to watch over a few weeks time.  Really great to see stuff I wouldn't otherwise get to the theater to see.

Get Out - Pscyhological Thriller that is so Intelligent - the twist at the end is a neat surprise worth waiting for

I agree.  When I started watching it I was thinking that there was a 80% chance it was going to be stupid and I wouldn't get through 2 episodes.  I'm glad I gave it a chance, it was a pretty good show.  Like groundhog day only darker with a better story.

I really enjoyed HBO's Sharp Objects. Great writing, complex characters, and a wonderful cast (Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson killed it w/ their performances). It's a mini-series (~ 8 episodes), so not much commitment either.

Hey all:

if you like crime thrillers & action movies, I've got two recommendations:

A). "HEAT", absolutely the best bank heist movie ever made, bar none.  Also, probably the best gun battle ever filmed.  A+ list actors, just incredibly well done all the way around.

B). "The Usual Suspects", great acting, engaging story line.  An incredible plot twist at the end.  Very well done!

Currently watching:

“The Expanse”, Season 3
“Perfume”  Germain Film noire series (loved the book from Süsskind too)
“Russian Doll” - I agree it’s a great script
“ Babylon Berlin” - very athmosperical Film Noir/ crime (of course I am biased towards German TV series)

I saw the 2016 sci-fi movie Passengers. It wasn't my pick and I had very low expectations, which probably explains why I was pleasantly surprised.

I was expecting a 6/10 and it was something like a 7.3/10, so I'm not saying it's great, but there are so few decent sci-fi films and series that I'm mentioning it anyway.

It basically felt like a short-story from the 1950s. Passenger wakes up early from cryo-sleep on a long interstellar flight. What to do next?

I can easily imagine how someone seeing it with high expectations could not like it, though, so be warned. It's not deep or anything, but it's decent entertainment.

I recommend the 'Eleven Madison Park' episode (#2) of the documentary series '7 Days Out' on Netflix.

I thought it was really good, showing some of what it takes to be the best; the attention to detail, going above and beyond, and constantly solving unexpected problems.

I recommend The Young Pope (https://www.hbo.com/the-young-pope) on HBO (which you can get through Hulu). It's about an agnostic pope who's not particularly innocent. The series is directed and written by Paolo Sorrentino, who also directed and wrote one of my all-time favorite foreign-language films: The Great Beauty (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dyt430YkQn0) (Italian language, but still enjoyable with English subtitles).

There's a line in 'Bridges of Spies' that I still think about once in a while. A soviet spy and his lawyer, telling him about the possibility of the electric chair. Spy doesn't react. Lawyer says: "You don't seem alarmed." He replies... "Would it help?"

"The Death of Stalin" was banned in Russia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Death_of_Stalin ). People in power there don't want any reminders.

No problem.  Another Spanish show on Netflix that was pretty good (although not as good as Unauthorized Living) is "Fugitiva", it's worth watching.

I'm watching the Amazon original "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" now, it's a little silly at times, but it is funny and worth watching as well.
