    I like cult classics and underrated movies disturbing ones too, I pretty much watched everything 2015 related up to now I am not a movie theater person anymore, like I used to be (too expensive in my area).
    Any suggestions would be helpful! oh and please give me a synopsis of them you list thanks.

    'The Day the Earth Stood Still' (1951): One of the best Sfi-fi movies in the '50s. A humanoid from the galaxy comes to warn Earth that it needs to stop engaging in war and bring peace or else they will face repercussions. It is a "thinking" movie of ideas, and the special effects are pretty cool for back in the day, too. Sorry for the sloppy synopsis; I haven't watched it in awhile, but it's really good.

    Have you ever watched The Boondock Saints, one of my personal favorites, just avoid the second one because it sucked.

    Yeah years ago, I am not a fan of both of the movies.

    I saw gone girl, leon the professional, JB. I'll have a look at the rest (why is fight club so highly recommended?)

    I just don't get why it's great and all golden. I don't know if it's trying to be a comedy or serious drama at times when I see the trailer on should I see it or not (yes I debate myself on it from time to time) it's been a joke among me and my friends on trying to get my to watch it like it's "the only movie to see before you die" it's quite entertaining for me :P

    On fight club I feel the need to link


    Anyway it sounds like you are getting suggestions of things. I can see running out of "the classics" and things from the usual 30 or so directors that people like but running out of films is something I can not see -- someone mentioned the 365 films in a year "challenge" to me, I do not watch films every day but when I do there will probably be three or so and thus I can do that quite easily and probably have for years. With the rise of DSLRs, cheap but good gear, the internet and cheap editing, compositing and other software the mid budget range stuff is going from strength to strength and it was never bad to begin with. Because of that I am struggling to keep on top of things and things have to drop off the list/hard drive all the time because of it.

    It's a thoroughly enjoyable action movie. I've never been a fan of Capt but it was a smashing watch.
