Top 10 Movies Everyone Should Watch (For Anonymous).
I don’t know if anyone wants to know why I chose each of these movies but I will write a little bit about why anyway, to defend my choice, if nothing else.
10. Requiem for a Dream (2000)
This movie looks at addiction. It’s kind of brutal on your emotions and got to me quite a lot but it’s one of those movies that needs to make you feel like that. It’s upsetting but it’s a very good movie.
9. Secret Window(2004)
I haven’t watched this in a while, but if it’s as good as I remember it being then it is rightfully on this list. A very good adaption of the Stephen King story. A very interesting, mysterious kind of movie.
8. Inception (2010)
This is a great movie, and even if it wasn’t, the scene pictured above makes it worth watching alone. The idea behind this is unique and it is so so so gripping. A lot of people are confused by it but I don’t think that’s a downside; it’s a very well thought out movie and if you are confused by it, I don’t think you’d at all mind re-watching it.
7. The Machinist (2004)
This movie is very clever. The foreshadowing used in it is superb and It keeps you guessing until the very end. It ended up being a lot more moving than I initially expected it to be.
6. Filth (2013)
People may say I just like this movie because it’s set in Scotland and that’s where I live but I think this movie was absolutely fantastic regardless of that. It was advertised as a comedy but, though it is darkly hilarious at parts, it is not a comedy. This movie will get to you. It literally left me with my jaw hanging in the cinema and stayed with me for a long time after I watched it. James Mcavoy’s acting in it is also brilliant. Definitely, definitely worth watching. A fantastic movie. It is released on DVD in the UK on February 10th.
5. Donnie Darko (2001)
This was the first movie I ever saw that made me think and totally changed the way I looked at movies. It really moved me when I first watched it at the age of twelve and it still moves me when I watch it. It’s mysterious and dark and interesting and haunting: a great movie.
4. Memento (2000)
This movie will fuck with you. I would probably say this movie is a masterpiece. It’s filmed in a fantastic way, and I don’t want to say too much about it but I have never seen another movie where everything was so different from what it seemed. Very unpredictable.
3. American Psycho (2000)
This is a strange movie. I don’t think it got it’s point across as well as the novel did but it also isn’t as stomach-wrenchingly vile as parts of the novel was so that’s good. This movie is actually quite funny but it makes a much deeper, darker statement, it’s very enjoyable to watch and is very thought-provoking. It is different from the novel but is in no way disappointing. A fantastic movie from a fantastic book. Patrick Bateman is also, oddly, a very likable character, and Christian Bale plays him brilliantly.
2. The Butterfly Effect (2004)
This was the first movie that ever really, really fucked with me, and it’s still the movie that fucks with me the most. Watch the director’s cut.This movie will take you on an emotional roller-coaster and will stay on your mind for a long time after you watch it but it is so worth it. This is 100% a movie that everyone should watch.
1. Fight Club (1999)
And, of course, here it is: Fight Club. I don’t care if this is cliche. Fight Club is the greatest movie I have ever seen and probably always will be. Every second of this movie is enjoyable to watch. I don’t think I can adequately explain why this movie is so great so I’m not going to insult it by trying, but I will say this: this movie changed my life, and if you don’t ever watch it, you are truly missing out. “It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we are free to do anything.”
Well thanks to anyone who read this, and please don’t insult my chosen movies; I know there are so many more amazing movies that aren’t on this list but I could only choose 10.
Hundreds of miles under the surface of the ocean, deep through the path of the bathosphere and you would reach a city; one that was created and hidden from the world above. Supposedly a utopia, but far from it. Like all societies corruption spread like a disease through it, because if there was something about humanity that was always a common variable it was greed.
Parasites, the Man in the Moon their leader, or Manny, called those who did not earn their own keep. Class division was clear as anything in the city, from the shanty houses with cheap rent in Pauper’s Drop to the elegant penthouses that came past Apollo Square in the district of Olympus Heights. Hidden away in the sides of Fort Frolic were what many would except in any city: the pleasure district, after all even those who resided under water needed to feed their desires.
Sitting on his dirty bed in Pauper’s Drop, the white haired teen sighed, from his filth covered window he could barely make out the square below, before he turned and stared at the materials before him. It had been ages since his parents had died, and what seemed like forever ago since the day he regretted with his entire being. Jack Overland had just gone out to find work, and when he came back to his humble apartment he found his sister was gone. Emma… gone. Like all the rumors of little girls going missing, she had been turned into one of those… horrible things… A Little Sister. Without a penny to his name, Jack had no bargaining chips to get her back, but he wouldn’t give up. Determined to earn money he started to bust tables in a small club in Fort Frolic… but when his boss noticed how customers’ eyes lingered on the teen, he demanded Jack join the entertainers.
Being a dancer wasn’t the bad part, it was the obligations after when customers became clients who wanted a little more than a dance. The first time had left Jack needing something… anything to feel safe again. So splicing was the answer. A simple hit and he felt empowered again… and again… and again. His only saving grace was the new drug on the market, that kept him from deteriorating into insanity… unfortunately it cost him a great deal.
So looking at his bed Jack took a deep breath before injecting his plasmid into his arm. It’d be another long night at work, better go feeling good, right?
Little did he know the importance of that plasmid.
