Any good movies to watch?


Recommended Posts

I watched 1917 that was good. Good story, makes you think how much them kids went through, in a war in a foreign country, watching your friends die. Compared to kids these today crying because they only get 3 likes on their Instagram post. If you enjoy that then Band Of Brothers is defo next. 

Prestige- one of my favs, with Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johanson, Micheal Caine David Bowie. Great movie about 2 magicians completing with each other and a great twist at the end.

Fight Club is great, good spiritual message in that, well I thought so about giving up material wealth and staying in Sangat- although their sangat was a fight club...

Last TV show i watched was Succession, which was fantastic. Great acting and well written.

If you like anime, Your Name is a decent movie. Deathnote is a great show as well.

Children of men,

That's a really gd  movie     some very powerful scenes. 

Something makes me think the condition of immigrant communities would be very similar to what's shown in the movie! If the world is hit by a major mother of all viruses! Or after a major war.

Omkara   one of the best Indian movies i have seen, based on Shakespeare play    its set in rural UP and it is so dark, gritty and rustic!     really rough, perfect representation of the real India! the rural India

It's a German-French film with subtitles in English about a French soldier who killed a German soldier during WW1 and who after the war goes to find the German soldier's fiancé to seek her forgiveness. 

 

I watched this last  night    really beautiful movie. I guess the ending, last scene is left for the viewers interpretation. She lies to her in laws about her experience in paris, just how she lies about the french guy to her in laws for obvious reasons, it's like their all living in illusions for comfort, trying to avoid reality. 

The visuals were beautiful.

I interpreted it as the French guy Adrien was so obsessed with getting forgiveness for his having killed the German lady Anna's fiancée and the parent's son Frantz that he does not see that she is slowly falling in love with him. Adrien's mother thinks that Anna is the one who is tormenting her son but she tells him that it is Frantz who he had killed that is tormenting him. It is only when Adrien is dropping Anna off at the train station that he starts to realise that he might also have feelings for her even though he is marrying his childhood sweetheart, he kisses her and she tells him it's 'too late' . That's pretty much the theme of the film. It is too late for Frantz and Anna to enjoy a happy married life, it is too late for Frantz's parents to see their son have children, it is too late for Adrien and Anna to have some happiness from such a hopeless situation. You are right, the visuals were beautiful and the way in which sadness and despair was shown in black and white while happiness and hope was shown in colour worked really well.

Yh there was a theme of longing in the movie. It was quite sad actually. Though I feel once the French chap told Anna the truth, it was like a closure for her, she actually felt like she could move on, only to find out the French guy isnt interested in her. But yh I agree I can see how he was so caught up in guilt that he couldn't see that she had feelings for him, and at the end when he did find out he realised he has feelings for her too. I think he was only marrying the French bird because of his mother. 

What did you make of the end? Because she sitting next to another bloke who resembled the French guy, and they were looking at the painting and she said somethinf that the painting makes her want to live. I guess she moved on and met the new bloke.

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 see a life beyond what she had just gone through and rather than the painting making her sad and melancholic she envisaged a future for her and possibly with the young man also looking at the painting. It showed that those left behind by the death of their loved ones in war take time to move on and after mourning for their loss, it is human nature to want to move on with ones life. There was added poignancy in the fact that only two decades later Europe would go through another round of blood letting.

Watching Extraction on Netflix   cool movie, very basic storyline, but lots of really gd action sequences , fighting,  violence etc.  At times it feels like a video game.  Really well shot. English movie but Its shot in Bengal.

    • Other Sangat will have to finish the full answer, but rest asured, what happens to a body outside the atmas control is not going to limit it. It will be nice when the proper rights can be performed, but don't worry, you can't break the systems of spiritual development with technicalities. 
    • It's been happening regularly to @dallysingh101 for some time. And if you know a certain detail it only makes it more obvious that certain people are being targetted not their content. 
    • I'm confused. Is this a farmer protest issue or a Guru Sahib desecration problem?
    • https://indianexpress.com/article/north-east-india/meghalaya/sikh-punjabi-shillong-sad-megahalaya-governor-7572180/   Sikh delegation reaches Meghalaya, requests Guv to intervene in relocation decision “We shared our concerns and he assured us that no injustice will be done and the residents will not be removed illegally,” DSGMC President Manjinder Singh Sirsa told The Indian Express. Written by Tora Agarwala | Guwahati | October 14, 2021 10:31:08 pm A delegation of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DGMC) with Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik. (Twitter/mssirsa)   Keeping the pressure up on the Meghalaya government to revoke its decision of relocating Dalit Sikh residents of Them lew Mawlong area in Shillong, a delegation of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Thursday requested the intervention of Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik in the matter. “We shared our concerns and he assured us that no injustice will be done and the residents will not be removed illegally,” DSGMC President Manjinder Singh Sirsa told The Indian Express. A four-member team, led by Sirsa — who is also the National Spokesperson of Shiromani Akali Dal — met Malik at his official residence in Shillong earlier on Thursday afternoon. “He said he had already taken up the matter with Chief Minister Meghalaya Conrad Sangma as well,” said Sirsa, adding that they could not meet the Chief Minister because he was out of town. The Sangma-led Cabinet’s October 7 decision to relocate the Sikh community from the area, also called the Punjabi Lane, based on recommendations made by a high-level committee, had drawn protests from the residents, who claim that they have been living in the area since the 1850s, after they were brought by the British to work as scavengers and sweepers in the region. While the government claims that the land belongs to the Urban Affairs Department, the Sikhs say the land was “gifted” to them by the Syiem (chief) of Hima Mylliem – one of the chiefdoms in Khasi Hills – in the 1850s. The land dispute has simmered for decades, with sections of society and political organisations in Meghalaya demanding that residents be shifted to some other area. It took a violent turn in May 2018, leading to clashes between local Khasis and Sikhs of the area, after which a high-level committee was formed to settle it. While Sikh groups have called the move “illegal”, “unjust” and “unconstitutional”, with leaders saying they would take the matter up with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, the Meghalaya government has stood firm on its decision so far. On Monday, Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong had told The Indian Express that they had “followed due diligence” on the issue. Sirsa said that since a status quo had been ordered by Meghalaya High Court on 9 April, 2021 based on a petition filed by Sikh groups in 2018, the high-level committee had no power to make such a decision. “The residents cannot be relocated without following due process,” he said. In a representation to Malik, DSGMC — an autonomous organisation that manages Gurudwaras, hospitals, educational institutions and welfare of Sikhs — that the Meghalaya government’s decision to take “possession” of the land is an action towards “instigating clashes” that can “spiral into violent unrest.” It also added that the government of Meghalaya asking the Urban Affairs Department to work out a relocation plan may lead to instigating the residents, “without even granting them an opportunity to say anything.” “The unilateral decision of the government in the name of illegal settlers is highly unconstitutional in nature and despite the directions of Hon’ble High Court they are not stopping from going ahead” it added. Gurjit Singh, President of the Harijan Panchayat Committee, which represents members of the Sikh Dalit community in Shillong, said that they felt “more confident” after the DSGMC meeting with Malik. “We are hopeful that the government will rethink their decision,” he said.
