Anyone know of any actual good movies?
I've on the movie seen every movie on the IMDB top whatever lists and started to watch B movies from the '80s and '90s but it has been a long time since I saw anything great. I've moved into TV series but even those i'm now stuck waiting for the next seasons. Altered Carbon for me was the last all around great show. Any advice?

Re: Anyone know of any actual good movies?
Upstream Color - the best movie ever made? Could be. An exercise in empathy and free will.

Primer - The best time travel movie ever made. Will make your head spin with its subtle but effective approach. Doesn't talk down to its audience.

Synecdoche New York - Takes meta to another level.

Hard Candy - Two monsters try to set each other up. One monster destroys the other.

John Dies at the End - Funny, odd, and probably unlike anything you've seen.

Super Dark Times - Coming of age movie with a dark twist. Probably requires multiple viewings to truly understand.

Jacob's Ladder - Interpretation will vary. Conspiracies, loss, and acceptance of fate.

I Origins - Powerful. A character's core beliefs are challenged as he and his partner make a ground breaking ( and personal ) discovery.

Another Earth - Forgiveness. Second chances.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World - A peculiar but good mix of comedy and emotion. Who is your real soul mate?

The Lobster - Forge a bond with someone to stay in society or outcast yourself for true love?

10 Cloverfield Lane - If Hitchcock had written and directed Misery.

The Fountain - Character is challenged through the depth of allegorical and literal loss.

Resolution - A true GLP movie here. I don't want to give it away, but this one is simultaneously hilarious and terrifying in ways you have to see to believe. Subtle stuff, but sticks with you.

I can only take that movie in small doses because it's slap stick kind of.

Basically an introduction to Freemasonry.

Have you seen Dark? Last season came out a couple of weeks ago. It's foreign, but pretty amazing. If you liked Altered Carbon it's worth a look.

The expanse...but you gotta make it thru the first season. It's very good but really starts kicking in at season 2

Also- I was rewatching Margin Call last night. Great movie and it's happening again. But this time it's CLO's that will take down the banks.

"Strange Behavior" from 1981 was decent.

"Mandy" isn't an 80's movie but it's a grat movie that takes place in the 80's.

If you're bored with movies and TV, try turning it off and finding something outdoors to do. It's better for the soul

I have probably seen Jacobs Ladder at least 20 times. I don't know why but I used to absolutely love this movie. So amazing.

Your other suggestions are really good as well. Great taste!
