This is the year of the sci-fi and bizarre. I’m just going to forget my categories since I can’t place these movies in them. All these films are highly popular cult movies with fantastical elements. And there are even plenty of great sci-fi movies that got left over from my list, including Contact, Men In Black and Starship Troopers. Continue reading
Only a few years left and it’s getting harder and harder to fit these titles to those silly categories I made. All of them are cult movies, all of them!
Anyway, this year’s a bit wonky one. All of the titles are somewhat weird or disturbing, but that’s the way I like my movies. And to be honest, like 90% of all of these 90s movies of mine have been a bit weird – at least compared to the regular American blockbuster drama or action flick. Continue reading
This crazy year had titles like Pulp Fiction and Shawshank Redemption. But everyone has seen them already, am I right? Even if I’m not, I’m just going to skip these super popular titles because why not. There are four movies from 1994 in IMDb top30, four!
Yup, this was definitely a good year, and even after skipping some obvious names, all these titles are getting a score of 9-10 from me. It also means that there were a bunch of great films with a score of 8.5 that didn’t make the list.
And why do I even categorize these? All these movies are rather praised, a bit weird, and more or less cult movies. Continue reading
These days movie trailers are so filled with spoilers that I intentionally stay away from them. And because of that, sometimes I notice a new movie (with big ass stars) that I hadn’t even heard about. Kingsman was one of those movies. I went to visit my friend and had cheap cinema tickets for us and only a handful of choices what to watch. I wanted to see something entertaining and luckily my friend was into agent movies, so we picked Kingsman and were very happy with our choice.
But that’s enough about my life – on to the movie itself! Continue reading
Now we’re starting to approach the years when I actually saw movies in the cinema. I went to see two of this list already. Indeed, when I was younger I watched tons of movies in the cinema and most of them alone. It was magical. Continue reading
This was a good year, but I think I didn’t end up having much difficulty narrowing things down.
I’ve been using and abusing IMDb for my posts, but why not, since the site is so useful. I still remember times before it. We had one of those Microsoft Cinemania CD-roms, with short reviews and pictures, I wonder how many hours I spend scouring through that data. It was something truly awesome before we started the daily internet use. Continue reading
This year I chose mostly everybody’s favourites, it just ended up being a year like that. Still not the best year of the decade.
Continuing with the groups of ‘appreciated’, ‘quality drama’, ‘cult’, ‘weird’ and ‘obscure’. Thinking about the age limits I’m pretty sure T2 for example has had a cut version on TV. I haven’t really followed all of the versions out there but would of course recommend the uncut versions in every occasion. Continue reading
I have a friend that was born in late 80s and thus missed out on a lot of 90s movies, while it probably was the most active movie watching time for myself. So I figured I’d recommend some great films to her and it quickly ended up being a dozen. Then I figured, why not pick a movie or a few for each year and recommend it to others as well.
I ended up limiting this to 5 movies per year and even then I had serious troubles narrowing it down in certain years. Continue reading
