I LOVED Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I really felt the emotions and I thought the CG was fantastic!
Let's just say that if all the corpses were to stand up at once, we'd have one hell of a population problem

Me too. I had been waiting a while to see this, and was so stoked to see it show up on Netflix. The story was perhaps a bit simpler than I had expected, but the key scenes were definitely effective. Plus, Joe Swanberg is way less creepy in movies he doesn't direct.

Her (2013)

I'm going to have a hard time writing about this movie because I don't think that I could possibly do it justice.

In short: This is a perfect, beautiful little movie about love and technology and relationships... Relationships between two people... And our cultural relationship with technology... A non-dystopic near future that is beautiful and transhuman...

So many things to love about this movie - The writing, the warm glow of the direction, the characters - Acting by Joaquin, Scarlet, Amy Adams... The costumes, the world-building, the beautiful and melancholy music - I just loved, loved, loved this movie...

I also loved how it touched on technology - We're in the near-future but it's not a dirty dystopia - Sure, we're still plugged into our devices, but it's not about how technology is taking over - It's about our relationship with technology (both literally and figuratively in the movie) and it also explores the philosophy of AI & Turing... Touched on some very interesting science fiction themes and has a very well-done conversation with the audience...

I know that was a really mushy review but honestly, I loved loved loved this movie - I definitely recommend it, especially for science fiction-lovers who were intrigued by its premise.

I'm not gonna put really well-known movies because chances are, most people here have seen them. I think all of them are available on Netflix.

Exam - A really intense and unpredictable thriller about 8 people locked in a room who are trying to find the answer to a question they don't know in order to get a prestigious job. The scope is limited to just the one room, and a lot of the thrills come from the dialogue and characters' interactions. It's of my favorite thrillers.

The Den - Probably one of the scariest movies I've ever seen, which might be because it hits so close to home in my generation. The Den takes place entirely on a laptop, and it's about a woman who witnesses a murder on a chat roulette site. It goes off the deep end a little bit at the end, but it's still a really effective and memorable movie.

Absentia - This one is directed by Mike Flanagan, who directed Oculus, so if you liked that, you'll probably like Absentia. It's about a widow whose husband went missing 9 years ago, and he suddenly comes back, claiming that a monster in a nearby tunnel is responsible for his absence. Absentia is a good example of what's come to be known as "quiet horror", where not much really happens, but the dark themes make up most of the scares.

Pontypool - A zombie movie with a really bizarre twist. Pontypool isn't particularly scary, but it's definitely original and quiet intense. This takes place entirely inside a radio station, so a lot of the action is only heard over a speaker and not actually shown in the movie until the last act. It starts out very slowly, but you definitely want to stick out the first half. The movie takes a 180 and becomes really intense very quickly, so the slow start is worth it.

Grand Piano - Out of all of Elijah Wood's movies (except Lord of the Rings, obviously), this is my favorite of his. Grand Piano is about a famous pianist who has to play a nearly impossible piece without messing up or else he'll get shot in front of a huge audience. You're going to have to suspend your disbelief quite a few times throughout, so if you're looking for realism, skip this one. Grand Piano is perfectly over-the-top while not being too campy. It's suspenseful, unpredictable, and really fun to watch.

Let Us Prey (2014)
Thought I'd recommend this one since it appears few people have seen it.
I thought is was quite special and original.
If you don't know what to watch, give it a go.
