I recommend you to see movies like Boyhood and Jodorowsky's Dune whenever you can, and also Locke and Life Itself, they're already on my top 10 of 2014 so far.

You pretty much said everything about the new Muppet movie that i felt, except with more charisma than myself haha. I still have no idea why they chose Ricky Gervais though, is he more popular in the US? oh and i agree that there's too many people and not enough Muppets! :)

Dogtooth (Kynodontas)

Dogtooth (Kynodontas)

(2010)
8 hours ago via Flixster

Dogtooth pushes the boundaries somewhat but stands on the shoulders of films like The Idiots and more obviously Salo but I don't think Giorgos Lanthimos is in any danger of being murdered any time soon. Dogtooth works on many levels, makes a lot of statements and asks a lot of question. It's a dark comedy but it's pretty light on laughs to be honest and although it says a lot, it's a little bit like being told the same joke over and over again, or at least it is until the last thrilling 15 minutes when Utopia's flaws are revealed. It's a great film and it is beautifully filmed. Lanthimos is definitely a director to keep an eye out for, that's for sure.

Funny Games

Funny Games

(1998)
8 hours ago via Flixster

Funny Games is a terrifying film and somewhat of a poke in the eye and a two fingered salute to Hollywood. Funny Games is not a particularly original story, that's kind of the point, it's been done many a time before but not quite like this. The beginning sequence music (the only part of the film with music) suggests that there is a much darker side to this film but you have no idea how dark it really is going to get. This is pure horror but this isn't a horror film in the sense that it's all blood and guts, you actually never see any of the violence, Peter and Paul are actually more frightening when you don't see them. It's really questioning how far is too far, both as a film and also as a society. We all know there are some real sick people out there, there are some real sick films out there too, Haneke is suggesting that the media should take some responsibility for this. A bit contradictory? That's where it gets clever, the interaction with the audience from one of the bad guys shouldn't have worked but it does, and quite brilliantly at that. For example, Paul says the line "We're not up to feature film length yet" at exactly the 95-minute mark of the movie. He also rewinds the film when the film starts to go down a familiar 'Hollywood' style road and continues the film with even more cruelty and brutality. Often awkward to watch but at the same time technically brilliant (not many directors film 10 minute takes). Funny Games is a breath of fresh air and a kick in the ass to modern cinema. My kind of film. I suggest those of you interested should watch this one first before the remake!

Carnage

Carnage

(2011)
8 hours ago via Flixster

Carnage isn't half as witty or clever as it thinks it is. It's melodramatic, white 50 something (starring 40 somethings) middle-class rubbish. It's mildly amusing but the 'it's funny cos it's true' aspect doesn't ring true here at all because it's not that funny and not that true. The idea is basic, the story is basic, it's based on a theatrical play with only 4 actors, I get that side of the 'basics', but I'm afraid I just found the intelligence and comedy just that little too 'basic' as well. I'm glad the Hamster survived though. I expect more from Polanski but the performances were good considering. If there is anything worse than the worst of Woody Allen, it's people attempting to be like Woody Allen.

Cyrus

Cyrus

(2010)
9 hours ago via Flixster

Cyrus's post-production is totally misleading. I'm guessing many people were disappointed that instead of getting a low-brow dumb comedy they actually got something tender and quite lovely. It's more drama than comedy, it's that cringe factor that confuses the mind that it is something funny when really it's just uncomfortably odd. Not laugh out loud funny just an oddity one can enjoy or not as the case may be. I found it to be a very pleasant surprise, as I was expecting a stupid Step-Brothers type comedy, with very few laughs. I may not have got the laughs but I thought it was brilliant writing. How a film can have a grown up man boy as the central character and still be really romantic is down to the good script and good performances.

Prince Avalanche

Prince Avalanche

(2013)
9 hours ago via Flixster

Prince Avalanche is David Gordon Green doing what he does best; mild comedy, daydream drama. I don't really like his brash (stoner, if you will) comedies and I feel much more comfortable with Danny McBride being producer rather than being in front of the camera. So it's a remake of sorts, nothing wrong with that just as long as you check out the source material. David Gordon Green, Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch have added enough of themselves for them to claim this as their own, this being the first film (maybe with the exception of The 40 year old Virgin) where Rudd has actually been successfully funny with his ad-libbing. The story is dreamlike, slow paced, melancholic and refreshing. As toned down as the comedy was I found myself laughing quite a lot. Prince Avalanche is a tickle, a breath of fresh air and relaxing one at that.
