Have you been dying to share your opinion about the last good movie you watched? We all have those movies that stay with us long after they've ended, the ones that make an indelible impression. So, do you remember the best movie you've watched lately? Whatever it was, there's nothing like getting totally absorbed in a great cinematic experience, forgetting about reality for two hours and immersing yourself in another world. Let's take some time out of our day to talk about what truly interests us—the thrilling stories in the film! 

1. Sin City

Sin City, sometimes known as Frank Miller's Sin City, is a 2005 American crime thriller film written, produced, and directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez.

One Redditor posted, “Sin City is just a great experience from start to finish.”

Another commenter replied, “So true. I should give it a rewatch sometime. Pity about the sequel.”

A third commented, “Going to have to watch this soon!”

Another user added, “It's on HBO Max and it's incredible.”

2. Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

One Redditor posted, “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.”

Another user agreed, “The movie was really good.”

One user commented, “Yup. This is it. And I definitely didn't expect it, either. Then the YouTube channels I follow started talking about how it was their favorite movie of 2022 and went way harder than it ever needed to. I finally saw it, and … dang. Just go see it, folks. Seriously. It's amazing. My father, who really does not like animated films at all, said it was ‘Pretty darn good. My butt will be in a theater seat if possible for the next movie from that Bad Guys team because they are killing it!” 

A fourth user responded, “the animation and visuals were amazing!”

Another user shared, “My kids made me watch this a couple of days ago. We were originally going to see it in theaters, but we all got sick and didn't make it. They ended up watching it at a friend's house, and when they got home, they forced me to sit down and watch it with them, lol. At first, I didn't have high expectations, but by the end of it, I was blown away by how good it was.”

3. Everything Everywhere All At Once

One user commented, “Everything Everywhere All At Once was such a surprise of a good movie, tbh. I went to watch it expecting some stupid comedy and found gold.”

Another one added, “The line about how they hated him for telling the truth, his name Dracula, was genuinely one of the funniest lines I've ever heard.” 

“What a bizarre movie Everything, Everywhere, All At Once was… Unexpectedly awesome, though,” one Redditor replied.

One user added, “From the moment I saw it was an A24 movie, I knew to expect another amazing movie considering they made Moonlight, and that's one of my favorite movies. I'm glad people who had your expectations got to see this movie because it's so good. Hopefully, that'll put you and any others onto watching more A24 movies since they are always brilliant and give exposure to actors and actresses who deserve more acknowledgment.”

4. Children of Men

One of the Redditors posted, “Children of men.”

Another replied, “John Taverner does good stuff.”

Another Redditor commented, “This is one of my favorite films. The long take shot during the battle is incredible.”

One user also exclaimed, “That's a movie I really want to rewatch because I watched it when it first came out and I think I was too young to really understand the value of the movie (I think I was like 11, maybe?). I think I can appreciate it more now as a big kid.”

One commenter also shared, “This movie speaks at many levels that an 11-year kid might not be able to understand yet. I've watched this movie several times, and every time it revealed something new to me. I love the music, how it's edited, the characters, the story, and all the little details that make it feel so real. And Clive Owen. He set a bar so high for himself in this movie that I can't enjoy him as much in other productions he played in.”

5. The Whale

The movie surrounds Charlie, who is a reclusive and unhealthy English teacher in Idaho who hides up in his flat and eats himself to death. He is trying to reconnect with his adolescent daughter for one final opportunity at atonement.

One Redditor shared, “The Whale. I had no expectations. I ugly cried, though.”

Another user replied, “There was one part where he was just cramming every bit of food in the apartment into his body, and it really hit me in the feels because I swear he was trying to kill himself in that scene, and having struggled with my mental health in the past, that scene shook me to my core.”

6. All Quiet on the Western Front

One user posted, “All quiet on the western front.”

Another user replied, “This was an underrated movie. It may be recency bias, but I'd rank it top 5 war movies I've seen and #1 for WW 1 movies. It was never unnecessarily gory but didn't hold back on the carnage. Felix did a phenomenal job at portraying both a scared boy and a resentful killer. The end scenes of them fighting to 11:00 hit it out of the park. From the trenches to the scavenging to the rural scenes, and the camera framing, etc. I see it as a masterpiece. Some didn't jive with the one-character method, but for me, I was taken to the war best by following one soldier through his hell. The scene that hit me hardest was him carrying his friend all the way to the medic for nothing. The blasé doc explains his sepsis and the indifference, the necessary apathy when at war. To anyone that hasn't seen it and appreciates war movies that don't just shoot 'em up scenes, this one hits. Edit: and that damned haunting tuba or whatever instrument that keeps repeating when shtf, chefs kiss.”

“How was this film underrated? it has 90% on most review websites and it has over 9 million views on the trailer,” One Redditor responded. 

7. Casablanca

“Casablanca. Had never seen it, and already knew a bunch of references to it and how it would end. But the damn movie still holds up. It's entertaining, romantic, high-stakes, full of suspense and drama, and historically fascinating. You may have to know a thing or two about World War II and Europe to understand it properly, but it's really a classic that deserves its reputation. I almost cried at the ‘Play La Marseillaise!' scene. So perfectly crafted and written,” posted one Redditor.

8. Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio

A commenter shared, “Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio. It was so beautifully made and was interesting to see such a strange take on the story.”

“Guillermo's inner monologue when making a movie: ‘Hey what if we took something everyone loves, and made it really creepy and weird?'” added one commenter. 

However, one of the users disagreed, “The original Carlo Collodi book is very disturbing and scary. Terror, torture, murder, etc.”

9. Little Miss Sunshine

One Redditor shared, “Little Miss Sunshine with my sister the other day.”

“I rewatched that recently. So good, and I love the soundtrack,” Another user replied.

“If you've never listened to the rest of DeVotchKa's music, I highly recommend you give it a go. One of my favorite bands, and amazing life if you get the chance,” a third commenter added. 

10. The Menu

One user posted, “The Menu.”

“That might have been my favorite scene. So very Gordon Ramsey-esque, which I appreciate,” another user added.

A fourth commenter shared, “I was put off by the horror tag, but my wife said I'd enjoy it, and she was right. Great film, and a really interesting look at the hospitality industry.”
