So... i am quite a moviehead... but real life can be a pain when it comes to finding 2 free hours regularly esp. when you spend your free time jammin on some chords....

 

What i have done against that is bringing to life "10 in a row" which means 10 movies in a row me and a couple of friends celebrate 2 or 3 times a year (we have the 25th anniversary on saturday (!) if counted right). So thats two days and i havent had any time to browse imdb by now.

 

We have one fixstartin movie which is always a running series - upcoming Poltergeist II (we had the child plays, the dirty harries, the death wishes ... :) ), the rest 9 are presented by the contestants - 6 including 2 girls - so there is a 50% chance for the second movie of everyone, one is for sure.

 

So i need your recommendations for my share (2 flics). Gimme your best shot.

Whats the coolest / best / strangest movie - you have ever seen and YOU would enter in that sort of happening.

Rules - no rules - except none of the others must know the movie and max lenght 100min, but that is not strict, i got 200 for 2 movies and shortfilms are allowed.

 

Usually i am the Tarrantino / Raid / Hostel / Wrong Turn guy but sometimes i even throw in a snowboard or music documentary, and doesnt matter - any genre welcome:

 

please gimme title, year, and a short description whats its about and why its so good.

 

THX!!!!

If you're doing this via Netflix, Kung Fury is a great homage to all of the classic 80s kung fu movie tropes while still being both hilarious and entertaining. Plus at a 30 minute runtime it would be a nice refreshing break through the movies. Especially if alcohol be involved.


Many nice scores on all songs :)

My recommendation would be "Whiplash" if none of you have seen that yet. I think, that's a movie every musician should see and when you do, you'll know why.

I decided to choose wierdest film. I've seen so many wierd films but not many I'd reccomend.

I don't want to describe the films in case I spoil them..

 

Videodrome (1983) - a very surreal experience

Society (1989) - shunting!! say no more

You need at least 1 Troma film so I'd go for Terror Firmer (1999) - cult classic for diehard Troma fans

Donnie Darko (2001) - nicely disturbing

Enemy (2013) - WTF!

How about Imaginaerum?   I have not seen it myself yet.  But from what i heard it has a Tim Burton feel over it and it was made with Nightwish.

Was just reading some movies, Roar (1981) is interesting, it's about a family of 5, mom, dad, daughter, son, and their pet Neil.
Neil is a fucking lion, like a real lion
No trainers, no cgi, no trickery, real, actual, Lion.

Google it, let the stills show the real of the lion


Many nice scores on all songs :)

No, certainly not - i hate to be spoiled (i even do not let my gf tell me what we are goin to see when we go the theatre - she hates me for that ;) ) - i'm pretty tough at checkin out movies at imdb without getting the idea of the plot.

I'm sure you've got Tarantino covered  (Resevoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction,True Romance )

so my cool list would be

 

Bladerunner (1982)

Falling Down (1993)

Trainspotting (1996)

Fight Club (1999)

Man On Fire (2004)

 

And coz I like a good heist

 

The Bank Job (2008) - based on true events 

Inception (2010)

a pretty weird, dark and funny film with the story centered around a band is Ex-Drummer, Some of the soundtrack is pretty good also

 

 

other good films that I can think off the top of my head are;

 

Alphadog

He was a quiet man
