Over the past 10 or 20 years, I’ve seen about 1000 to 2000 movies. Mainly from when I was a teenager until I went to college. After that, I only watch them occasionally.

The following are some of the movies I watched rather long ago that I liked. But I didn’t watch them the year they were released.

  • One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest
  • Once Upon a Time in America
  • Paris,Texas
  • Apocalypse Now
  • Terms of Endearment
  • The World According to Garp
  • Wild at Heart
  • Blue Velvet
  • 37°2 le matin ※1
  • Stranger Than Paradise
  • Children of a Lesser God
  • A Clockwork Orange
  • Angel Heart
  • Amadeus
  • Dallas Buyers Club
  • Before Sunrise
  • Million Dollar Baby
  • Green Book
  • Pixote – A Lei Do Mais Fraco
  • Christiane F. – Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo

※1 It’s worth it just to see the video of beatrice dalle. beatrice dalle in Night on Earth had a strong presence, but the video of her debut film 37°2 le matin is still valuable.

However, I don’t know if I still think these movies are good now. This is because I have recently seen movies that I used to think were good, and I was disappointed.

I don’t know if this is a change in my own sensibilities, or if it’s simply because the movies themselves were made a long time ago, so they seem old.

The following are some of the movies I’ve seen in the last year or two that I thought were good. The list includes some movies I’ve seen before.

  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
  • Wind River
  • Joker
  • Pulp Fiction
  • American Beauty

P.S. Thu, 3 June 2021
Movies that I kind of liked are added as needed.

I listed a few movies, but I think there are really more. The following are the movies that I remembered since they are not in the list above.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
  • The Master
  • Drive ※2
  • Bleeder ※3
  • L’Avenir
  • In Bruges
  • The Girl on the Train
  • Clouds of Sils Maria
  • Three Days in September
  • V for Vendetta
  • Teströl és lélekröl

※2 Not the sound effects, but the music selection is nowhere near as good. It would be a great film if the music matched the visuals.

※3 This film is directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, the same director as Drive. It’s a good movie, but for some reason, it’s not rated well on IMDb and not rated yet on Rotten Tomatoes. why?

Of course, these are some of the movies I remembered.
I watch movies but not many TV dramas. I only watch them when I feel like it. In that way of watching, what I liked recently was

  • Line of Duty

The following are some of the movies I’ve watched recently. After watching this drama, I have trouble finding other dramas interesting for some reason.

Postscript to Postscript Tue, 8 June 2021

I’ve watched six or seven TV dramas since I saw Line of Duty, and I finally found one I wanted to watch.
It was

  • TRUE DETECTIVE (Season 1)

This was a good match for me. However, Season 2 and Season 3 are not as good as Season 1. Season 1 of TRUE DETECTIVE is excellent, especially the script by Nic Pizzolatto. In addition, the acting and presence of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson is outstanding.
The opening image and music are also very good, expressing the image of this drama.
