@quinlan58:Way to intimidate with your film knowledge! I marked a few a films on your list to my IMdB watch list. Thanks.
I'm at that point in film-watching where I know a lot of films some don't, but those who do know more about film than me pretty much stomp me.
Great to see It's a Wonderful Life mentioned. George Bailey is one of my favorite characters in fiction.
@quinlan58: What are the notable films that you have watched from Kurosawa? I have only watched Seven Samurai. It had excellent action sequences and acting.
Dersu Uzala is the first that comes to mind. Perfect from a visual perspective, extremely likeable main characters, great man-against-nature narrative. Then there's High and Low for your crime thriller needs, Ikiru for your life-affirming message needs, Ran for your ultra-dramatic medieval war story needs, etc.
Honestly, I have already watched that video, before even trying Seven Samurai but thanks for suggesting it. I wasn't sure what the video wanted to explain about the movements but after watching Seven Samurai, I realized a bit about what the video tried to imply. I think I will gain a certain perspective after watching more of his movies but Seven Samurai was really good.
Too many to choose, I'd have to separate by categories and my favorite at the time is constantly in flux.
The most technically perfect and critically acclaimed film I've seen is probably The Godfather. But unless I'm in a certain mood it can get boring for me after a bit.
I'm pretty obsessed with The Lighthouse and A24 films in general at the moment, so I'll go with that.
Best high tier CBM action though still remains to be Man of Steel, with Batman v Superman also getting a nod, really any Zack Snyder film is going to have great action and amazing visuals.
