Apparently because I’m supposed to have good taste in movies or something. I don’t necessarily believe that because I can find good in almost every movie I see, but yeah, here’s a masterpost of movies you should watch because they’re all pretty good, if not great.
Bold ones are highly recommended; bold and italics mean we might have a problem if you don’t watch this movie.
Movies designed to frighten or disturb the viewer, with more gore than thrillers.
Films that primarily use suspense, tension and excitement to elicit a reaction in the viewer. Often overlaps with horror, but with less gore.
A very specific type of filmmaking, used most commonly in horror, in which the film is presented as if the events on tape “actually happened” and were discovered on tapes or in files left behind by missing or dead protagonists.
Films that focus mostly on in-depth character development as opposed to elaborate action sequences or shocking viewers. These films are often nominated for Academy Awards.
Movies that put the heroes in situations where they face incredible odds and must physically fight their way out. Lots of explosions. Lots.

The Filmography of Quentin Tarantino:
Tarantino films are a genre to themselves. They’re even better if you watch them in the order they came out. (I will go ahead and say that I haven’t seen either Kill Bill movie yet, but if they’re like his other movies, they are fantastic.) This list does not include Jackie Brown or Grindhouse, due to those not being solely Tarantino.
So Bad They’re Good:
Just trust me. I haven’t seen all of these, either, but my friends and family swear by them.
Movies I’ve missed in other categories.
Bicycle Thieves (Ladri di biciclette)
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Nowhere in Africa (Nirgwendo in Afrika)
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End
