Movies I would recommend to a friend?

  • Jurassic Park. Amazing movie that seemed way ahead of its time.

  • Black Hawk Down. Captured the Battle of Mogadishu well, especially the emotions of the time, and it really showed up the desperation of every man there.

  • Castaway. One man on an island can be an extremely interesting watch, thanks in part to the amazing acting of Tom Hanks.

  • Jurassic World. The acting was amazing from most of the people in it, and it was hair raising to see the big parts of the movie. Also, seeing the park in action was beautiful.

  • Warrior. It had something for everyone; great action and fighting, with brutal knockouts and technical submissions, with a great emotional background to it.

There are more, but those come to mind.

Here's a list I made to recommend movies to friends. It's not really a list of best movies but rather a list of good movies I think most people would like, specifically a younger American audience. I tried to mostly pick movies that were pretty accessible, but there is a bit of a range. http://www.imdb.com/list/ls074098644/

I like this idea. I agree with many that I've already seen, so I won't repeat any, but I'd like to add Interstellar. Cool plot, good acting, amazing soundtrack.

A second underrated one, that I get is not really for everyone, is Inherent Vice. Many many people disliked it but I loved the fantastic acting as well as the vibe created by the sets/dialogue, etc. The key to watching it is to realize that it's supposed to be confusing. Watch it for the vibe, not the plot. Also realize it has hilarious moments that are funny if you're watching for them.

Primer: Brilliant independant movie about two guys who accidentally invent a time machine. At least 2 or 3 watches recommended

Dr. Strangelove: A comedy from the cold war about the end of the world. Extremly funny.

Enemy: A film that is so much more than it seems. A history teacher sees an actor that looks exatly like him in a film. Dreams of spiders, paranoia and mystery sorrounds this amazig film.

Sunshine: A team of scientist travel through space with a bomb the size of Manhatten to restart the sun. Not as dumb as it sounds, this movie features tense action and awesome visuals

Akira: Crazy anime for fans of cyberpunk, regardless of your thoughts on animated movies, A gritty rebuild of Tokyo filled with vilonce, we follow a group of young bikers that end up in the middle of millitary experiments on psycic kids.

Starship Troppers: A satire of the great american war machine, or just a dumb action movie? This movie is good for entirely diffrent reasons depending on how much you think about it

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance is one of my favorites. It's Ford's most reflective and thoughtful westerns. John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart were perfect actors for their roles. It may be the first attempt at deconstruction of a genre (I'm sure someone can find a previous example). Just a great movie.
