The same as the "Book bin", but for movies.

I'd start with one of my recent favorites:

Death Note (japanese anime series)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXvkYp2Gd3k

This is the story of a bright high school student, who one day lays his hands on a "Death Note" which somehow fell from the sky. The Death Note has an attached instruction manual, which states that if someone's name is written in the book, that person will die. The student tries it in an experiment and it works. The rest of the story is about his way to become the new "God" of this rotten world - and about the myriad ways how a well-intended spiritual quest can go wrong because of the Ego.

Exceptionally good stuff.

(After you watched the first 26 episodes, I recommend to stop there. The rest is not bad, but unnecessary.)
 

Trippy glass for trippy people.

"Death note" is pure awesome. I must have watched it 5 times through varying in subtitles and overdubs, as I love the original japanese but really love L's american voice over. Light's is a bit goofy and his character is far superior in japanese. Also it has the greatest soundtrack ever and really beautiful animation.

"Monster" is without a doubt the most epic manga/anime I've seen EVER. It's a good 75 episodes strong and it will have you flickering between beauty and depravity in a way which really highlights the 2 opposites. It's such an amazing and very complete story.

Then there's a series that may be very much appreciated by fellow nexians called "mushishi". It's a collection of short stories based on a travelling healer that deals in the study of supernatural spirits who take form in the shape of various small being neither living or dead. It's THE most beautiful anime and the animation is second to none. Here's a link to my favourite episode on youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOb0Iz5fjr0

It's all short stories so it's ok to watch them in the wrong order. I'm usually very fussy that I watched everything chronologically but it doesn't matter too much this this.

But yeah Mushishi... WATCH IT!!! If you can buy the DVD's or at least get a torrent of the full quality files because the scenery is breath taking. It's amzing how much effort is put into a landscape that you only see for a few short seconds.

Also are you aware this threads called "music bin"? Smile

Yeah, I fixed it (Music bin -> Movie bin).

Thanks for the tips, I didn't know either Monster or Mushishi. I'll surely check them out (that's why I created this thread - to get recommendations from you more knowledgeable guys/girls out there). Smile

My next recommended movie:

Serial Experiments: Lain
http://www.youtube.com/w...;index=0&playnext=1

I can't really describe what this movie is about. It's deeply spiritual, that's for sure.

Check out the first episode (see link above), after the first episode, you will know whether this is for you.

I may watch through some of that today.

...ok, 1 more anime to recommend. Have you seen Claymore? It's like a middle ages set fantasy about female warriors who kill monsters using big swords. Smile I realise I've just made it sound quite cheesey, but it's actually pretty damn good.

"Grave of the firefly" and "Paprika" also Smile

I know, too much anime. But I do love it Smile

Grave of the Firefly: yes, I've seen that. Epic but very very sad. My wife asked me to never show her such movies again, so shaken she was.

Paprika: YES, that's awesome! When the scientist guy is marching on top of that... "ego-mass", with every part of his world singing that scary song... a perfect visualization of being completely lost in the dream of ego.

Two others (both of the beautiful, heart-touching kind which Japanese anime artists became so good at):

Haibane Renmei
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22McP9WVeTo

Last Exile
http://www.youtube.com/w...;index=0&playnext=1

and if we are at anime, we can't possibly forget the grandmaster Hayao Miyazaki:

Spirited Away
http://www.youtube.com/w...yQ0zcM&feature=fvst

My Neighbor Totoro
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roiTC-LATgM

Howl's Moving Castle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57r9jjqzJJk
(sorry for the lame voice on the trailer, I couldn't find a better version)

and the rest...

The other day I saw Precious. A story of a girl in a very grim situation, and how she slowly begins to rise out.

The harrowing experience should awaken in the viewer a sense of compassion. Unfortunately, if it came to reaching out to someone like Precious in real life, I'm afraid my good intentions would shrivel and wither. I can only be astonished at the real life compassionate saints that deal with people like Precious on a daily basis, and despair at those who slip through the cracks of hope into a life you wouldn't accept for an insect.

Yeah, grave of the firefly really rips your guts out, but I think the message is very important.

I'll have to check out "haibane renmei" and "last exile" also.

We should rename this thread "anime bin" Smile

OK, enough anime.

Back to classics. Here are two of the most moving, emotional films I encountered up to now:

Cinema Paradiso
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMgTCtSxOHE

This is the greatest movie, ever. At least for those of us, who can let ourselves be grabbed by the depths of emotion. If you liked Titanic, definitely check this out (not because Titanic was a particularly good film, but because if Titanic managed to grab you then this WILL, oh my God, it WILL.)

The Big Blue
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAIi2YUtoW4

Can't speak much about this. Just watch it at least once in your life.

SLING BLADE

Runtime: 2 hrs 37 mins

Genre: Drama

After catching his mother and her boyfriend "in flagrante delicto" and dispatching both of them with a farm implement known as a sling blade, a simpleminded 11-year-old boy is sent to a mental hospital where he spends the next 25 years. Upon his release, the emotionally and mentally stunted man-child returns to his Arkansas hometown and takes a job in a local garage, only to have the past inexorably repeat itself. An indie-film triumph, adapted by star-writer-director Thornton from his 1993 short, "Some Folks Call It a Sling Blade." Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best Actor--Billy Bob Thornton. Academy Awards: Best Adapted Screenplay.

“The most important thing in illness is never to lose heart.” -Nikolai Lenin

Quote:

Rex and Saskia are on holiday, a young couple in love. They stop at a busy service station and Saskia disappears. Rex dedicates the next three years trying to find her. Then he receives some postcards from her abductor, who promises to reveal what has happened to Saskia. The abductor, Raymond Lemorne, is a chilling character to whom Rex is drawn by his intense desire to learn the truth behind his lovers disappearance. The truth is more sinister than he dared imagine.
