I see myself as a very big movie fan (especially horror movies) and I am always following up on the greatest movies and rating them.
I actually enjoy all categories of movies but my favorite categories are definitely comedies that can strengthen my laughter muscles and psychological thrillers that give you goose bumps all over the body. I recently watched Shutter Island with Leonardo De Caprio and it was truly a beautiful and well played movie, I really enjoy these kinds of movies with several twists and turns along the way.
I have noticed and you will probably agree with this, that if you are an avid movie watcher you slowly learn to predict the endings and twists of movies that are not very well written and very well played. Therefore I am really thrilled whenever a movie manages to surprise me and give me goose bumps.
Another movie I can really recommend is “Running Scared”, I had never heard about this action/thriller movie before one of my great buddies recommended it to me and I must tell you that I was really impressed. The movie has a very distinct style and effects that you rarely see and the story was really great and exciting, with the fear of spoiling the movie I will just go ahead and recommend you to check out this movie for yourself.
My ultimate favorite is still “Secret Window” with Johnny Depp. It is a psychological thriller and is a original Stephen King movie, Johnny Depp plays his very hard role perfectly and the twists in this movie are simply incredibly breath taking.
If you are leaning more towards the gangster genre of movies there is no doubt that “Training Day” with Denzel Washington is high up on the list. This movie depicts the lives of corrupt cops in the mean gang infested streets and Denzel is a great actor as always.
Speaking of Denzel Washington I can definitely recommend his movie “Déjà Vu”, it is part science fiction and part action and has some really cool twists and turns along the way. While we are in the science fiction genre or horror movies you have to make sure you check out “next” by Nicolas Cage, in this movie Nicolas Cage can see two minutes into the future and this leads to some very interesting situations and creates a great overall plot for the rest of the movie. Make sure to check out my recommendations, I am sure you will enjoy them.
