why have you guys actually been answering film questions lately? i know i've asked a few dozen times about some film recommendations and i don't get anything back but "check our faq" but there is literally nothing helpful in your faq. so why are you guys suddenly answering questions? idgi.
It really depends on who the viewer is to be able to say that the specific film is visually appealing. For instance, some would consider Avatar visually appealing, while others would consider Spring Breakers to be visually appealing. Honestly, I find both to be visually appealing, but here are a few more films that my eyes really enjoy -
The Clash: Westway to the World (2000) - On the Clash
Beyond the Lighted Stage (2010) - On Rush
No Direction Home (2005) - On Bob Dylan
Hear My Train A Comin’ (2013) - On Jimi Hendrix
The Beatles ‘Anthology’ (1995) - On the Beatles
Living in the Material World (2011) - On George Harrison
It Might Get Loud (2008) - On Jimmy Page, the Edge & Jack White
The Last Waltz (1978) - On Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Van Morrison, take the stage for “The Band’s” 1976 farewell concert.
It’s incredibly easy to find documentaries on classic rock artists/bands. Mostly since they progressed and transformed rock music today. If you go into any search engine online of your favorite rock group, something is going to come up. And even if there is no documentary, there are always interviews, live concerts, and books that can tell you more about your favorite rock artist/group!
movies to overcome a breakup? especially the ones where in the end the main character realizes s/he can be happy alone
Here’s one that just came out in cinemas that I thought had a really good ending because of exactly what you said.
BEGIN AGAIN, directed by John Carney, who previously directed Once. The main character is played by Keira Knightley and at the end she realizes she can be much happier by herself than be in any relationship right now. It’s great.
And here are some other ones:
(500) Days of Summer… Now I would like to see one from Summer’s POV because I think a lot of people wrote this film off because it was from Tom’s POV, when it is very obvious that the movie was trying to tell you Tom was kind of an asshole who fell in love with the IDEA of Summer, and not her as a person, and when she realized she needed a change he couldn’t accept it. And I think it’s great this was presented, but it seems to me a lot of people either mistook it one way as the movie painting Summer as a bitch, or the other way, where it was just hipster nonsense, which I think discounts the film a lot.
Legally Blonde. You can be single, fabulous, wear all the pink you want, and be smart as fuck
My Best Friend’s Wedding.
The First Wives Club
Celeste and Jesse Forever
Closer. It will help you get over monogamy in general tho hahahhaa.
Architecture 101 (Korean film. GREAT film)
The Age of Innocence (you get that Countess Olenska felt like she made the right decision. WE SHOULD HAVE GOT MORE OF HER AT THE END OF THE NOVEL AND THE MOVIE!!!!)
Nobody’s Daughter Haewon (another great South Korean film where she makes the decision to be alone at the end)
Our Sunhi (from the same director as Nobody’s Daughter Haewon, Hong Sang Soo)
- Natalie (wednesdaydreams)
ps. Gone Girl and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby Him & Her will probably fit this bill
can you recommend me some movies similar to "gummo" and "kids"?
Harmony Korine’s usual genre of film type is experimental, indie, avant-garde, and drama. He has a very unique and unusual way of filming I think, and his story lines are just as bizarre and haunting. Here are some films that seem similar to me.
Hi I luv ur blog i have a question I wanna watch films that include more peope of color African Americans I've already watched cabin in the sky and story my weather what r other good old hollywood films that center around Africans Americans
I’m gonna be really honest with you here, there aren’t many old hollywood movies that include african americans in lead roles, due to the fact society at the time was extremely racist, african americans in general were stereotypically casted. But there are some so here you go, there’s a couple of films that include african americans in significant big/co-lead roles that I’ve included, aside from the social norm of the time there were big stars like Dorothy Dandridge, Lena Horne, Diahann Carroll and Harry Belafonte.
could you recommend me some actually scary horror films?
I am a big baby when it comes to scary films, so these might not be as scary to you as they are to me, but regardless, these are in the genre of scary/horror/thriller. Also, I am too afraid to look up specific dates the films were released, or even the correct spelling because that’s how afraid I am to go back and see it online, so if I spell anything wrong, I am sorry -
Amtyville Horror (old one & remake)
House of 1,000 Corpses
Halloween (Rob Zombie)
The Haunting In Connecticut
28 Days Later
Let Me In (2010)
A Nightmare on Elm Street
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
(If you have any scary / thrilling / horror films that you want to recommend, reply to this post with the film(s))
In your opinion, which movies have a surprising plot twist?
Well, my opinion might be very different from a lot of others opinions on what the plot twist may be. But then again, most of these films are known for their plot twists. But here is a little list of films that I found to have a plot twist, or something happen that I was not expecting, or even being aware was there.
Don’t read more if you do not want to know about plot twist in specific films -
