Thnks i like these type of movies too   I'll watch it    iv seen war movies like the pianist, schindlers list etc 

It's not really a war film. It is more of what happens after the war and how the ones left behind suffer after all the victory parades are over and how they have to pick up the pieces of their lives.

The best film I watched lately was Frantz which was on the BBC iplayer before the virus. It's a German-French film with subtitles in English about a French soldier who killed a German soldi

If you like gangster films then Carlito's Way is a very good film. 

The ending showed that even after the relationship she hoped would work out with Adrien and it didn't she was moving on especially as she was looking at the painting  Le Suicide by Manet. She could se

Just saw Godfather 2 the other day (again!) it's long as hell but great. Saw it with younger relative, who enjoyed it. 

The Joker is also a great movie in my opinion. 

 

There is an interesting documentary on youtube called Studying for a higher purpose about a scientist called Raphael Mecholoum (I'm pretty sure I spelt that wrong!) about discovering the role of cannabinoids in our body - if you're into biology and science. He also briefly describes how his uncle played a key role in making sure the Jews of Bulgaria avoided the nazi concentration camps. 

I think it's good to watch some older movies because they were a lot more creative and less formulaic than today. If you watch the first Rocky again, and know that Stallone wrote the script, directed it (I'm sure??) and fought hard to star in it, when the studios wanted a known star instead of an unknown, it's even more awesome. There is a lot of social commentary in there too.  

Raging Bull is a classic!

Recent films like the Irishman is good too (another long one!)

I loved Logan too, the last one about Wolverine.

Watched Reservoir Dogs, was not as good as I first remembered..

I think with Quentin Tarantino films, what made him stand out was the way he moved the storyline around so it was not in chronological order.

Some films are classics and they stand the test of time and then others just look so outdated.

I really like the movie Leon, beasts of no nation was really good!   have you seen roma? i havnt seen it but apparently its really gd

iv started watching Epstein filthy rich . Its the same grooming patterns isn't it? most of his victims were girls from broken down poor families with no money,  the paki gangs also pick on white girls from similar backgrounds. 

have you seen mudbound? its really gd, its really sad though, its set in the deep south and is about 2 families, 1 white family and 1 black family. 

iv seen don't fck with cats!  that was some disturbing sh1t
