The Mist - stephen king, great acting, great story, amazing acting, the movie will fuck with your brain

Life - great sci fi horror, no goofy characters, tense, suspensful, not a single idiot astronaut in it who would smell alien eggs or would avoid quarantine protocols

Annihilation - same as above

Just dont watch any of the trailers due to spoilers.
You are welcome

They are all decent films

I would recommend Martyrs (2007) for horror. That was a crazy ride. Also good ones:

Zombie (1979)
The New York Ripper (1982)
Opera (1987)
The Green Inferno (2013)
Midsommar (2019)

Lol Green Inferno is trash and idiotic but i have enjoyed it a lot :D
That made me remind of Green Room. Its rather kind of a thriller but still creepy to me.

Yeah it is kinda trash but I love trash horror done well. Eli Roth is fantastic at that niche: Knock Knock, Cabin Fever, Hostel... all very good trash.

Green Room I thought was decent too. A bit overrated though, not sure why it got more love than other similar films tbh. But its good for what it is. If you liked it you may want to check out the directors other film Blue Ruin. It's around the same quality level as Green Room

I rewatched on TV the movie "Fractute", with Antony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling.
It must be the 5th or 6th time i am watching this and i love really this movie. The mind games between the two of them and the law duel is awesome.
What i noticed fo first time in today's rewatch was in the last scene with the second-final judge, where Hopkins has a group of attorneys, that the president-judge of the court, was the same guy that signed the certificates to unplug his wife from the life support in the hospital. And Hopkins thanked him calling him by his given name, which is implied that he knows him in a relation level.

JoJo Rabbit is one of the best films I've seen in a long time. If you don't take some kind of joy away from it, I think the modern world may have eaten your soul.

If you're half-interested from the plot overview (little German boy living in nazi Germany, who loves Hitler, has a silly child's version of him as an imaginary friend, but seriously embodies everything the nazis stand for)... Don't read up anything else about it. Don't even watch a trailer. Just go and see it.

Was n't Uncut Gems snubbed from being nominated, the biggest unfairness of this year? Adam Sandler's acting, whom i didn't also personally like cause of his filmography, was a true revelation in this movie. Even Kevin Garnett was very good for acting first time. I have seen other athletes in the past in movies, Jordan, O'Neal, Kevin Durant and they were all awkward and cringe on acting. Garnett had a very decent and bearable performance. But the true "uncut gem" of the movie was Adam Sandler. He proved that he is not only capable of comedic, b-movie, trash films.

Also reading the premise i thought that it is not something unique as a scenario, but the direction was so unique that created a continuous anxiety-suspense during the movie.

Adam Sandler is a good actor, he just plays in a lot of shit comedies, his performance in Punch Drunk Love is great, as is the performance of the late Philip Seymore Hoffman. I have yet to check out Uncut Gems, looking forward to it.

Yes this is sad. Of course he makes a lot of money from the shit comedies, but they leave him with bad reputation. And he has proved that he can make extra ordinary performances, if the set-up helps him.
It is the reverse from Antony Hopkins, that after a majority of good movies, he played Odin in Thor, that was out of his shoes as a setup.

i liked Uncut Gems a lot. despite you would expect the ending and despite despising the main character...or lets say everyone in the movie :D....at the end i was rooting myself for the main character sitting on the edge of my seat and made me second thought what can happen in this movie and so i was a bit of surprised still by the finale

and of course the acting and story telling is top notch. only disliked the soundtrack. im already full of these 80's synthwave music in every movie now....it seems like no one is getting that Stranger Things takes place in the 80-90s thats why the music...

DOCTOR SLEEP

Well this movie is the shit. Dont expect the Shining but its the best mistique horror movie since The Mist. Go watch it, i recommend the directors cut. This is a proper Stephen King movie, a movie of the 90's SK tv movie era but with great acting and visuals. As i was watching i was like "damn...IT should have been like this..."

I liked Dr Sleep quite a bit, it follows the book to the letter until about two thirds in, then there is a WTF moment, kind of letting those who read the book know that all bets are off at this point. The ending is very different to the book, but it does walk the line of being a sequel to the original Shining and an adaptation of the book quite well. The book is certainly not one of King's best but I would still recommend it to anyone who has only seen the movie.

edit: Didn't even know there was a director's cut, I will have to check that out.

P.S. Rebecca Ferguson though...

Im watching that version with my brother now. Actually it is...episodic? The theatrical cut didnt have episodes right?! Anyway full 3hours long this way, it should have been on Netflix rather. The movie flopped heavilyat the box office although its a great movie.


Also i watched Jojo Rabbit recently. What a lovely little movie. Damn ...the acting is outstanding....everyone is outstanding in it.... i just couldnt believe it. Taika "Wes Anderson" Titi directed a heartwarming, funny, tragic little movie.

Watched Creed the other day, was quite impressed with it. Like a remake of the original, but still part of the series. Stallone is really great in it, not surprised that he got an Oscar nom. The one take fight in the middle of the film is really impressive, which is why I find the last fight a bit of a let down, as it is the typical Rocky fight of two guys hammering each other but still staying up for way longer than would seem to be humanly possible. Michael B and Tessa Thompson are both great too and all three play well off each other, so I am curious to see Creed II as well, even if it seems to have gone into full silly mode, with the son of Drago being the opponent. Also, not a Coogler film.
