What is a good movie to watch?
I have seen so many movies. I love them, but recently I only run across bad movies or remakes and I've given up hope of finding a really outstanding movie. I really will watch any genre, I'm not the biggest comedy fan however. I love movies where the cinematography is just overwhelmingly great, like in Brokeback Mountain. My favorite genre, were I to pick, would be psychological thriller.
So what are some movies that you really really enjoyed? I have seen lots of movies, so naming very popular movies isn't going to be too helpful.
I'm glad people suggested foreign movies, as well. those are some of the best.
