    I wasn't much into There Will Be Blood. Very slow moving.
    Definately recommend Inglorious Bastards. Thought it was a bit slow moving when I saw it in the cinema. But saw it again few years later on the smaller screen. And loved it.
    Can't remember Schinders List. Ages ago since I saw it. But I remember that it is very good. Very bleak,as I'm sure you know.

    Out of those, I'd go for Inglorious Bastards. There are some long scenes and lots of dialogue. But it's quite entertaining overall.

    2001; a space odessy. Often meant to watch it. But haven't done it yet.
    And The Irishman. It's the length of the films thats putting me off.
    Have couple of young kids so no time during the day. And not suitable films for starting into at 10 at night.

    On the Irishman, I read at the time that people had split it into sections, with time stamps, so that you could watch it in 3 "episodes"

    Might be an idea for you if you want to get around to it, here it one of the versions anyway:


    "This is what a Twitter user suggested:

    Episode 1: I Heard You Paint Houses

    Watch from start to 49 mins - cut when Jimmy Hoffa ends the call.

    Episode 2: Hoffa

    Watch from 1:49 to 1:40

    Cut when Joey The Blond is introduced.

    Episode 3: What Kind of Fish?

    Watch from 1:40 to 2:47:30

    Cut when Frank exits the house. (You'll know when.)

    Episode 4: It is What It Is

    Watch from 2:47:30 to the end."

    I haven't seen loads of really popular, classic movies, but I get the most disbelief from people about the Godfather movies, and Star Wars.

    +1 on the recs for Shindler's List, and Inglourious Basterds, I enjoyed them both.
    Schindler's List I'll rewatch, along with The Pianist, every year.
    That's probably why I miss a lot of movies, I rewatch the ones I love out of comfort viewing!

    The Irishman....at 3 & a half hours, I just don't have the attention span.

    Slow moving doesnt mean bad. There will be blood is a superb piece of cinema.

    There will be blood was always intense, everything is there for a reason, would love to watch it for the first time again.

    Fully agree with this

    The wife read the book pre the movie ever being made.

    She was lookin forward to seeing the movie and in fairness the setting/scenery etc is v good.

    BUT...She said the age gap is meant to be approx 3-5 years.

    In the movie armie hammer is pushing 30 (he looks as auld as the hills compared) and chalamat looks around 16.

    As you said both of us commented independent to each other that it seemed “off”, and not faithful to the book.

    The Rocky horror picture show

    Fear and laughing in Las Vagas was in the list but watched it over Christmas

    Do NOT ask me how I define the terms "man", "woman", "male" or "female" when you reply to this post. You know the answer and it's probably irrelevant to the discussion :)

    The Irish man is well worth your time. I saw it in the cinema and have also watched it on Netflix. It’s very good if you like Scorsese “gangster” movies I’d recommend it.

    Inglourious Basterds

    Assumed this is the movie the other posters are reffering to and not actually 'Inglourious Bastards' the Italian flick from the late 70's.

    I rewatched not so long ago not as good as I originally thought wouldn't have the replay value of some of Tarantino's other work but certainly a worthwhile viewing if you've not seen. The cafe bar scene is fantastic.

    I agree, it's a masterpiece. P.T Anderson would be my favourite filmmaker.

    the original is very good as well and I was surprised when I watched it that it wasn't more well known or shown on tv when all they showed was old WWII movies

    Indeed it is, and certainly a far better movie than Inglourious Basterds. A modern classic.

    Shutter Island.

    I've yet to watch any of the LOTR properly.

    It's worth it just for deniro saying to pacino

    "It's what it it is"

    And pacino and Tony pro discussing their pensions in jail

    Shutter Island is fooking brilliant

    It's as close to the books as could ever be made by Hollywood.

    Sam Neill should gotten Agent Smith's role. And I don't buy Liv as an elf. I must do a marathon sometime.

    The Hobbit series is what you'd expect from Hollywood and best avoided. Seek out the fan edits where they've removed half the runtime to remove the worst excesses.

    Unless you've an aversion to anything fantasy'esque.... you should be blown away. Staggering feat of filmmaking.

    I know I should watch This is Spinal Tap, but I haven't.

    Any of the Godfather film's

    Apocalypse Now

    Oh lordy, I finally watched it last year. Actually no 2019, re released in the cinema and it was magnificent. Instantly into my top 10. Cannot recommend it enough.

    For me the LOTR trilogy has never really appealed me,also yet to get around to watching classics such as Casablanca

    The scene at the start with Martin Sheen where he cuts himself is apparently real blood and he was supposed to have had a breakdown during that period. I don't know if that's myth or truth though.

    This thread reminded me of being sat down and made to watch the LOTR trilogy, and the Matrix trilogy in the one weekend, by people who wouldn't stand for my wilful ignorance any longer.. Pretty sure it was after a festival and we were all feeling pretty fragile..

    Was stunned at LOTR, had read the books, and was afraid I'd hate it - oh how wrong I was!

    Watched the Matrix and thought, that coulda been done in one movie.
    Probably best to see them as they come out in some cases!

    Running time is nearly one of the first things I check when finding something to watch. So many movies are just unnecessarily long these days. No need for it
