What movie should I watch next?

Well guys, It's hard to know what movies to watch, so this is the "I recommend a movie" thread. Please put a IMDB link if you can.

I just watched "Waitress" ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0473308/ ) yesterday, and it was excellent. It started nicely and kept on being good, all the way to the end! It's very rare to see a movie that is good all the way through these days...

Edit: I'll give this movie a 7.3/10 on the Simba movie scale.

Welcome to Dongmakgol (2005).

A very good Korean film about several soldiers trapped in a wayback village somewhere in the Korean DMZ during the Korean War. The villagers don't even know what a gun is. The soundtrack is composed by Joe Hisaishi, who also composed the soundtracks for all of Miyazaki's films since Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (1984).
Editing something.

Thanks for the tip, I'll try to find this movie somewhere...

Yesterday I watched Rescue Dawn ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462504/ ). The movie is about a German born American pilot, and his Adventures during the Vietnam war.
It was very nicely done movie, well acted and realistic looking. I'll give it 7.1/10 on the simba scale of movies. (The movie leading the Simba scale, at the moment, is Apocalypse now - the original, with 8.5/10)

Yesterday I watched the Korean movie Welcome to Dongmakgol. I have seen only other Korean movie before, about some secret South Korean agents fighting against north Korean spies. Welcome to Dongmakgol was totally different movie, it was very poetic and close to nature. I wish they would have developed the characters a little bit more. all in all I would give it 6.1/10.

That means that you haven't seen Oldboy. Watch it :-x
If you liked Rescue Dawn, you might like Herzog's Aguirre. It's also kind of a jungle movie, but it scares the living shit out of you instead of even trying to entertain you.

Also try:

Mischief Night (2006).

An absolute howler of a film about racial tensions in modern Britain. Hysterically funny. Don't know if you'll get the British humour, though. If you are feeling uncomfortable about this, relax and let it all out. It takes the piss out of everything from Islamic extremism to gangsters.
Editing something.

I would Reccomend the movie "Ready to Rumble"

It's a childish-humored movie at most points, but I loved it when I was younger and I still love it now. It's not a kids movie, though, just some potty humor and such.

I'd also suggest Jackie Brown. It's a very underrated Quentin Tarrantino movie, but it's fantastic.


I know these suggestions aren't barely known movie Gems or foreign films, but they're still good.

Thanks for all the movie tips!
I haven't seen any of those movies, except Jackie Brown which I have in my yellow Tarantino box. Looks like I'll have lots of movies to watch this weekend... Smile

Edit: Yesterday I watched "Death at a Funeral" ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0795368/ ), which is a really funny British comedy. It was just excelent! British Humor at it's best! It was so good, I've added it to my list of movies to buy... Smile
I'll give it 7.2/10.

Yesterday I watched Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes. Apparently, a few hundred years ago, Spanish people could speak German really well... Smile
It was a really good movie, Strange and beautiful. because it's so out there, I don't really know how to rate it, so I won't.

It says on the IMDB pages that this is a part of a trilogy. does anybody know what are the other films in that trilogy? I would like to see them all.

Well it's part of a trilogy, but only kinda. It's just one of the three "jungle movies" Herzog and Kinski made together. The other two are Fitzcarraldo and Cobra Verde, and although imo neither is as good as Aguirre, they're both really good movies.
