These are 3 examples of some of the finest works cinema has to offer

There are also other movies

You can talk about those too, I guess

But mostly we should be talking about Citizen Kane, The Godfather, and Lucy

    So I randomly caught a scene from Hostel last night.

    Yeah.

    Not sure why folks watch that nonsense.

    Oh my god

    So Grave Encounters was a dumb fun horror movie about a ghost hunters type show that finds real bad stuff in an asylum.

    Anyway, I just found out there was a sequel, and in googling I find the entire thing on Youtube. With an annotation on it that says "In no way do I hold any rights to this film... it is purely for you the viewers enjoyment... so.. enjoy...."

    and then in the comments they put

    The Godfather is a great movie. But I would have to say that I like Casino more.

    Heh. Good joke, OP.

    Anywho. Grave Encounters was really fun. The sequel is hot garbage.

    I just watched The Godfather I and II again this weekend.

    The scene in II where Vito is tracking Fanucci through the street fair is the best thing.

    I prefer Once Upon A Time In America, but I'll admit it's not as good a film as the Godfather.

    Watching " Seeking a friend for the end of the world" on Netflix and it occurred to me, this is far from the first Romantic Comedy + Apocalypse movie I've seen lately, how is this a genre ?

    Two of the most pivotal human experiences are love and death. The apocalypse brings them together without forcing the viewer to watch old people have sex.

    And the OP does not feature The Raid 2 and is therefore invalid as a judgement of cinematic quality.

    It's just when any movie, let alone romantic comedies, end with wiping out all of earth's existance. it's weird. Trying to remember the name of the last one I saw it was like, 2 couples fighting at a dinner party, and in the background there's hints on the news that they are oblivious to, then at end, yep armageddon everyone is dead.

    That was the previous one I had seen, current one was "seeking a friend for the end of the world" and I've seen another one that does this recently too.

    Lucy is fun, but extremely silly. The plot is exceptionally light, and it's almost all spectacle.

    There is, of course, nothing wrong with that, but I wouldn't put it in the same category as Citizen Kane or The Godfather. Or was that the joke?

    Funny that Scarlett Johansson was in both Lucy and Under the Skin in the same year. For similar concepts, you couldn't have two more different movies.

    Ya it was decent ( I missed a chunk of the middle twice, once to a phone call and then again to the door after I rewound, I will watch again if that's anything to say. Nothing super amazing, but a decent timekiller nonetheless.)

    I was just mostly weirded out by it being the 3rd movie that is a romantic comedy that ends with everyone on earth dying I've seen recently

    Pretty sure that disclaimer - even when correctly applied, which it isn't here - is the Youtube equivalent of "You can't get pregnant if you do it standing up".

    I saw Godfather once in a college english class, for some reason, years ago. It didn't really do anything for me.

    Casino is great, though.

    I prefer Godfather and a New Hope to Godfather II and Empire Strikes Back.

    I acknowledge that the later entries contain the high points of their respective series, and they're both good movies, but the first entries feel like they're more consistently good. Does that make sense?

    if YA movies are going to insist on splitting the final book in half it would be great if they could just come up with another name of either of the halves of the book, part 1 and part 2 is so creatively lazy

    I don't think it's all that risky for brand recognition to eschew or invent a subtitle when you're at the end of a film series that, by now, has its own massive audience basically independent of the books' quality or initial draw

    Jackson managed to come up with three subtitles for The Hobbit, and that was only supposed to be 2 movies.

    and then they changed the best one

    If you were going to call a Hobbit movie ANYTHING besides "The Hobbit" it should be "There and Back Again"

    There's a sequel to The Act of Killing coming next summer
    Here’s what we know about The Look Of Silence right now: It explores the same genocide as The Act Of Killing, but from the point of view of the victims’ families
