    Definitely Once Upon a Time in the West. Great photography and great score. But sooooo boring. It felt like the whole movie was filmed in slo-mo.

  2. Jim says:

    I agree about Dunkirk and A Quiet Place. A friend raved about both — insomnia cures for sure. I’d also add to the list Moonrise Kingdom, The Village, Shutter Island, and The Black Swan.

    I have to agree with Black Panther.

    They have traditions for ascending to the throne, but a dude no one has ever met can show up after all is said and done and just be like, “Nah, do-over.” and everyone agrees?

    Why?

    There is a lot of really dumb moments in that movie.

    Dora Milaje were badass though.

    only problem i have with this list is personage1 input as it is stupid

    you mentioned jumpscares but that’s not a great argument as all horror movies have jumpscares and at least a quiet place only has a few.
    And when it does they are unexpected and build story.

    You also mentioned bird box which when it comes to storyline has more holes than than a wheel of swiss cheese.
