The Lighthouse is fantastic!

The movie is symbolism-heavy and I'll admit I didn't quite get all of it. But I was thoroughly fascinated by the weirdness of the whole thing and its absolutely pitch-perfect aesthetic.

I mean the movie looks incredibly good! The black and white cinematography and the 4:3 aspect ratio really add a lot to the atmosphere while also providing some great eye candy.

And of course, both Dafoe and Pattinson are f**king magnetic in their roles!

The one thing I'm not really a fan of though is the ending shot. I kinda got what it was meant to be (thanks to having played god of war 2 of all things) but it still felt jarring to me.

 

Saw it

 

Hype of the movie was 5/5, but the movie itself is like 2.5/5

 

also saw Joker, not the Best, but okaish - 3/5

 

watching 6 Underground now

Yeah, it's probably not everyone's cup of tea. Reminds me of Mother (2017) in a way.....another movie which I loved for its absolutely batshit crazy weirdness

It's not an all time list, just the ones I watched this decade.

But yes, excluding Shawshank and 300 would make it right.

 

Yeah, but it seems like not many are interested in making a list though :P

Anyway, here's mine FWIW. All are movies from this decade.

 

10. Scott Pilgrim vs The World
9. The Grand Budapest Hotel
8. Parasite
7. Arrival
6. Logan
5. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
4. Before Midnight
3. Whiplash
2. Mad Max: Fury Road
1. Blade Runner 2049

 

There are so many great movies that I feel like my list would probably change quite a bit if I were to make it even just a few days down the line. The numbers 1, 2 and 10 are locked though.

Also best director of the decade IMO - Denis Villeneuve. Made Incendies, Prisoners, Enemy, Sicario, Arrival and BR2049 this decade :majesty:.

6. Gravity

7. La La Land

There's quite a few more, but these I've seen more than 3-4 times, and even now if they show up while channel surfing I'll stop and watch them till the end.

Only watched Logan and wolf of the wall street.

Wolf of the wall street wasn't bad at all but not my type.

Didn't like Logan much (seemed an a to b movie instead of an action hero movie), liked the generally hated X-Men origins : Wolverine more.

 

And no one watches bollywood and mostly prefer action or sci-fi stuff ?

Yeah, Logan's quite different from a typical superhero action movie. But I didn't love it just because it's different though. I thought it was a really well made and acted character piece on the lines of Unforgiven, which is an all-time favourite of mine. The violent R-rated action is a cherry on top.

Well, half of the movies in my list aren't action/sci-fi :P

And yeah, I don't usually watch a lot of Bollywood stuff. But below are the ones that I loved from this decade.

 

Ugly

Lootera

Lunchbox

Andhadhun

Udta Punjab

Gully Boy

 

Have heard good things about Gangs of Wasseypur and Pink but haven't got around to watching them yet :\

Honestly I pity those folks who gre up loving star wars and have those love goggles still on and are being bombarded by one shitshow after another since so long lmao.

 

I don't know what people were expecting? STAR WARS has been mediocre since early 2000. Episode I and II were dogshite. Revenge of the Sith was just as okay as Sequel trilogy if not worse.

 

All the good STAR WARS stuff ended in IV-V-VI. After that it's all just nostalgia and hope. The music still gives chills. 

 

I very much liked both Rogue One and SOLO way more than VII and VIII. 🤷

Massive respect for mentioning The grand Budapest hotel and whiplash, I didn't think anybody bothered with such movies here.... :thumbsup:! If you like more offbeat movies check out tumbadd, triangle, side effects, blue Jasmine , haywire & coherence - from the top of my head.

Thanks :bigyellowgrin:

I've seen all those movies except Blue Jasmine and Haywire. Will add them to my watchlist :good:

And I don't know how I forgot about Tumbbad. It's definitely one of the best Bollywood movies of this decade!

No matter how good or intense the movie is, I can't list it if I can't watch it more than twice, hence no Whiplash, Black Swan or BR2049.

 

Also Blue Jasmine is great, one of the better Woody Allen movies.
