There Will Be Blood was dope. Daniel Day-Lewis was dope, the movie/clothes/haircuts looked cool and the milkshake shit was hilarious.

I know it was an old post, but I didn't like Hobo With a Shotgun at all either. I thought parts of it looked cool, but it wasn't fun/funny to me at all and I like stupid violent shit.

i like 2001 but i don't think it's great. i think basically every movie kubrick made after strangelove kinda sucks.

this thread is just 'movies that aren't as profound as people seem to think'

I liked 2001 a lot. I think visuals influence my opinion more than anything in movies though.

I think everything Paul Thomas Anderson has ever done except Punch-Drunk Love is garbage.

Yo mass way off the mark on the first two. Heat is a fucking awesome movie (albeit it way too long) and platoon is some pretty effective straightforward war ish. Usual Suspects is basically useless once you know what's good with Spacey though fully agree

Naw Platoon is terrible, it was actually in my original post but that image disappeared. I can't remember any details but it was 100% cliche, emotionless amateurism.

the first half hour of full metal jacket is some of the greatest footage ever. and 2001 was awesome, but i probably saw it in 2001

i didn't think i was gonna like it, but drive was pretty sick. straight to the point, wish there were more like it in that genre.

Drive felt to me like a hollywood movie which was trying really hard not to be a blockbuster, but couldn't help it in the end. I had high hopes for it but I was pretty disappointed.

I felt refn was bound to fail after Valhalla rising. That's seriously like the coolest movie I've ever seen.

late pass because most people are cool on it now, but snakes on a plane. insane hype at the time.

it kickstarted the career of one of cinema's goofiest dufuses ever and that can never be forgiven.

both films

agree with many of nolans films up there, rewatch value for nolans work is very small

10000000% agree with usual suspects (terrible) and leon (even worse)

disagree with drive (with the exception of brooks), akira, 2001, chungking express, there will be blood

Manhattan. Pretty much everything Woody Allen's done for that matter.
