Default Film Recommendations - 04-02-2021, 04:25 PM

I'm a bit bored so thought I'd offer some film recommendations, these are a bit more obscure (depending on your age and if you're into your films) than the usual fare (if your idea of a good movie is Fast & Furious or the next marvel comic superhero shite, then this won't be for you).

Southern Comfort (1981) - Thought I'd start with this one as it's available to watch on YouTube. A Louisiana National Guard troop go on weekend maneuvers in the Bayou and make the mistake of pissing off the locals. This often gets compared to "Deliverance" I think it's better.

Hombre (1967) - A Western starring Paul Newman, doesn't get talked about as much as his other films, but I think it's one of his best.

Midnight Cowboy (1969) - Great film with some good performances from Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman. A would be gigolo goes off to New York for a bit of adventure and to make his fortune, but things don't turn out the way he expected.

Eagle vs Shark (2007) - A quirky romantic comedy from New Zealand starring Jemaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords), I think it's quite underrated, I liken it to "Napoleon Dynamite".

The Ladykillers (1955) - Probably the best Ealing Comedy and just a charming film, it stars Alec Guinness, (a young) Peter Sellers and Herbert Lom. It's also set around Kings Cross, so interesting to see how much it's changed.

Don't Look Now (1973) - This is kind of a Thriller/Horror, a British made film starring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, good lead performances, it's mostly set in Venice, just a great piece of work.

The Hill (1965) - Stars Sean Connery in one of his best performances, it's set in an army prison in North Africa at the end of the Second World War.
It focuses on the fear and punishment doled out by the army officers in their attempt to break the human spirit of the prisoners.

Excalibur (1981) - Best Film adaptation of the King Arthur legend, and a great classical score which includes a lot of music by Wagner.

I could go on, but I better leave it there.

Good Vibrations is a good film from 2012. It is set in 1978 in Belfast and is about record shop owner Terri Hooley who owned the record shop of that name. He helped local punk bands to get gets out by starting a record label of the same name. He also discovered punk chart busters The Undertones as well. It is well worth a watch. You can watch the full film here: https://youtu.be/Od5UaNvzRZQ

Just watched the movie version of 1984.

The book is obviously way better, but the movie painted a grim picture.

I've been hooked on criminal psychology stuff lately. There's this awesome YouTube channel JCS - Criminal Psychology. They post videos of interrogations with psychos and murderers and shit. It's awesome the way they break down the suspect's demeanor and body language and all that stuff, and the little tactics the detectives use.

The 1984 movie is pretty bad.


I’ve been watching a lot of Spanish stuff in recent years what with living here and all that. Here’s a couple that I would consider to be worth reading subtitles for:

1. La Isla Mínima (The minimal island) - If you aren’t hooked from the haunting beauty of the very first shot of the intro, you might actually be blind and deaf. Seek medical assistance! The film follows two cops investigating a murder in a remote rural area. It is very well done in every aspect.

2. Intemperie (Intemperate) - In feudal times a young son of a servant family escapes mistreatment at the hands of the master who pursues him relentlessly through Andalusian mountains in the dead of summer, when nature is without charm. In my opinion they muck up the ending, and I wonder did the book end differently, but that can’t really take much away from the overall brilliance of it.

Those aren’t the English movie names in parentheses, rather they are translations of the Spanish names. They may have renamed them for foreign markets.


Peace,

kowalski


Like a stray bullet, you niggas misled

K,

For someone at entry level Spanish, what media would you recommend (even if it's something simple like Dora the Explorer)? Bonus points if available from Amazon Prime lol.
