    Default My Top 100 - 2020

    Here we go. Please recommend films and this won't be fun without you guys discussing the movies I post.

    So...


    100. Cast Away (2000)
    Director: Robert Zemeckis

    A fantastic performance by Tom Hanks elevates a good movie to being great. I loved the use of music (or rather, the silence the movie gives us). Robert Zemeckis has done better work, but I still consider this a favorite.

    And there are those who simply don't get Chopin.

    Pity.

    99. Arrival (2016)
    Director: Dennis Villenueve

    A seriously great sci-fi film, Amy Adams is great and you can't go wrong with Villenueve.

    Yes, I loved the silence on that island as well. Hanks & co. did a wonderful job keeping such a simple story interesting.

    Well, “Please recommend films” is written at the top, so go ahead. Surely, the movies in the list can be a springboard for other recommendations.

    ^^ YES I’d love recommendations along with comments on the movies I’ve chosen.

    This one was interesting. It certainly was nice to see an old school, concept-based sci-fi flick. Good cast.

    Still stunk of Hollywood to me. If you want to see something you've never seen before, watch "Hard to be a God" by Aleksei German

    Yeah, it has a Hollywood feel to it, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing IMO. But Hollywood has lost its way with sci-fi these past couple of decades. Star Wars and other galactic battle films have dominated so much that it’s hard to find anything with a thought provoking concept. Arrival at least made a good effort in that direction.

    Thanks for the tip on “Hard to be a God.” I’ll look for that one.

    Thanks, I'll check out Hard to be a God!

    Of course Arrival is a Hollywood popcorn flick first and foremost, but I still can't help loving it. And besides, for me it affirmed the existence of time beyond our own perception - we do not exist in one moment, but constantly exist in every moment.

    98. Hell or High Water (2016)
    Director: David Mackenzie

    Although I don't usually love Westerns, this modern Western tackles themes like family, stereotyping, and a sense of meaning and purpose in life. It's heartfelt, wonderfully acted, and I highly recommend it to everyone!
