Last "Great" Movie You Saw

This is mostly because I recently saw a "great" movie; Imposter, a docu-drama I jerked off over last month in the Last Film You Watched thread.

 

Basically, when was the last time you saw a movie for the first time and absolutely, ten out of ten, loved it, and what was the movie in question?

I may take flak for this but I LOVED Prometheus. So much so that I bought the bluray and I never buy blurays. All the extra footage and behind the scenes is worth is. I think a majority of people didn't like it is because they were maybe expecting a direct Alien prequel instead of an extension of the Alienverse and the rumored connection to the Blade Runnerverse. That's not a spoiler by the way, just speculation.

 

Also, it left a bunch of unanswered questions and most people these days want everything handed to 'em. I love films that make me think. I watched that film over a month ago and I'm still searching the fanboy forums for interesting takes on the movie. Everyone has their own conclusion and I think that's awesome.

 

I won't deny that there are problems with it, but not enough to ruin the immersion. Easy 10/10 for me.

Since I just recently watched Donnie Brasco for the first time, Donnie Brasco. Great sh*t.

 

One of the most underrated movies of the 90's for sure, such an awesome cast aswell.

 

For me it would be The Raid, seriously as stated it is the best action movie in years, oh and make you sure you buy/download the unrated version just far more gore :lol

I think the last film I watched that left me silent at the end was Super. That was months ago. Normally after a film I'm all "yeah cool I'll see what else is on", after Super I just sat there as the credits rolled, then found the remote and rewound 10 minutes and watched the end again.

You see, I'm easily pleased when It comes to movie's and I thought the last 3 I went to the cinema to see were all great, Dark Knight Rises, Dredd and Looper really really enjoyed them all, also on f'n VHS!! I finally watched The Untouchables and again loved it. Sort of rekindled my man crush on Sean Connery. But usully with movies I cant watch them again without leaving it for a long while, but I'd watch each of those again now I I could.

 

Super is so great, best £5 I ever spent. 'HEY, DON'T BUTT!'

I loved the telescopic coffee-mug-bong, but I got really excited when you see all the different "elevators" near the end, not to mention the ending itself was great.

 

Spoilers containing specific elements from the film I enjoyed contained within -:

An added mention to Thor's death too; you could see it coming, but it was still pretty damn sweet. In fact, the entire premise was brilliantly realised, with the little touches (office pool whiteboard, recognisable monsters from well known games and films, the reason for why it's being done, THE F'N MERMAN, etc) showing both a respect for what has come before, but also a touch of genius in the writing).

The Avengers. I dont really like super hero films but that was just so wicked on such a huge scale, I couldnt not like it.

 

And The Shrine. I really liked that too. I'd never heard of it before and I've never heard of anybody speak of it, but I watched it and thought it was cool, and the statue who's face follows people is creepy as f*ck!
