My personal recommendation to you if you haven't seen it already is Blade Runner. You want atmosphere, it's got it in shit-tons. Vangelis' score reeks of atmosphere. I think what I'm trying to say is that it's good on atmosphere.

Also, a robot gouges a man's eyes out with his thumbs. Fun for the whole family.
Part of the problem with films is that I've been pretty much solely exposed to your stereotypical Hollywood cliche films that you can find in any old cinema. I like to be involved, to be doing something. I find books to be incredibly involving; just the sheer act of reading. Movies, I just sit there and end up getting restless in most cases.

I've heard plenty of good things before about Blade Runner. I'll have to check it out sometime.

I also want to see the movies that have been used in Agalloch's music. I believe a number of samples in their songs come from Ingmar Bergman films.
yeah. films, to me, are just like music. there's some great stuff out there that really makes you think, and then there's stupid pop crap that was just thrown together to make a quick buck.

for me, it's all about netflix. but i'm 99.999999% sure that's just a u.s. thing. besides, it sounds like you're wanting to go the free route. if you're willing to pay though, you might want to look at amazon's site. i know at least here, they offer the ability to rent dvds via download for cheap.

Like Khan said, there's a pretty big similarity between pop crap movies and music, you've just gotta know where to look.

It sucks that you've been exposed to crap so often, maybe you'll find some stuff you'll like in the future.

This is the thing. I know where to look for music. I sort of know where to look for literature. But for films? Haven't the first fucking clue.

Plus, being poor and stingy, music and books work out to be much better value for money at this point in my life.

i have a friend who likes every mindless movie that's come out, it seems. examples from their myspace: Hairspray, The Breakfast Club, Romy & Michele's High School Reunion, The Wedding Singer, Mrs. Doubtfire, Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink, Some Kind Of Wonderful, etc.

there's obviously more stuff out there than just that. thank god for that.

Lame. Have you tried changing the port you use to connect with torrents?
