Need Movie Help ASAP!
Things have slowed down around here significantly. It’s not a bad thing, but it does mean that we have dirth of quality complicated films to watch and converse about. A couple of months(?) ago I threw out 50 mind job movies to get the conversation started for an ultimate mind job list, and I had so much fun hearing from you guys on what movies you are all about. And while I haven’t actually made that ultimate mind job list yet, (I actually am trying to work my way through all of them before I write that list) I do have a problem.
Here’s my problem. I’m heading out to Haiti again in a day or two and usually when I go abroad I already have piles of movies preloaded and configured on my laptop and iPad Pro to go. But right now? Nada. Well, that’s not entirely true, I do have these few that I got from the Mindjob list: a) Pontypool b) Amelia 2.0 c) When Blackbirds Fly d) The Rapture (’91) e) Reconstruction. When I look through these 5 I think Pontypool, Reconstruction, and Amelia seem the most intriguing… no? Do I have that all backwards?
And my next question to the wider pool of you is, what other movies are out there that I haven’t written about or we haven’t talked about in the comments? Or even if you just want to re-highlight one of your favorites. That’s fine too. A great resource definitely to check first is the mind job list that we have started already. That might just blow your mind and help you find an armful of interesting movies that are worth your time. This community is big enough now that I know we can come to each other’s aid when we have a man down. And right now, we definitely have a man down! And don’t worry about if a movie is in theaters or on video. We can make this a wider discussion than just beyond my little trip.
I recently almost bought a new domain – don’t want to tell you which, because then you’ll steal it and then what am I going to do? – just for t he sole purpose of keeping a list of movies that we find here. But then I bogged down on finding a wordpress template that was just a flipping list! But that would be such a great resource. A place to go where we just curate a list of quality movies. Not Hollywood quality. But thinking man’s movies that are worth recommending to friends. Just saying. Maybe I’ll work on that if I can find a stupid theme. (So yeah, if you have theme ideas too, let me know! I’m just looking for an SEO optimized, fast wordpress theme, that can either be a single page list, or maybe the post page just has a few of the details with a link to here? Not really much. Just need a place that is easy to navigate and review for knew movies you haven’t seen yet. Make sense?)
Anyway… thanks gang. And dude, if you have connections in Hollywood, or better yet, the independent film circuit, tell them to step on it! Holy cow. Where’d all the good movies go?!? I do need to go see suburbicon. Any of you seen it already? Seems definitely worth while. Alright, signing off. Back the movie truck up!
