Weird/Strange Movies You Like?

Recommended Posts

Any movies you like that may be considered weird, strange, messed up to others? Which movies?

(Please no judging other people's likes)

One movie in particular that I recently watched and now consider a favorite of mine is The Danish Girl. A movie loosely based on Einar Wegener's determination on transitioning into a full woman named Lili Elbe after his/her wife asked him/her to pose for her latest artwork when the actress whom was intended to pose had canceled. Sometime afterward, as the days passed by Einar began to see himself/herself more and more as a woman than man; eventually after years of stress and doctors claiming Einar/Lili was mentally ill, he/she found a doctor to help Einar to officially transition to Lili with the help of Einar's wife.

I can't help it, not only is the story very interesting but I was always intrigued by men and women transitioning as well as their life before, during and after. Now I'm not saying I'm interested in seeing the procedure done, no thank you (I have a weak stomach when it comes to any kind of surgery). Just the person and their life itself. I guess you could say, taking a walk in their shoes. Why does this interest me? I have no clear idea, just that I want to understand other things.

Well I tend to really like a lot of Japanese movies, and Karen movies. One in particular that comes to mind that would be classified as messed up would be Battle Royal. I won't go into spoilers because it really is a good film, and something you just need to experience first hand from a fresh start. I am sure there are others I have seem but can't really place any at the moment. I am also far more of series person though I enjoy a movie if it clicks with me.

I tend to like Guillermo del Toro's films, which tend to be pretty surreal (favorites include: Pan's Labyrinth, The Devil's Backbone & the original Hellboy). There's been talk of him wanting to do a  live-action adaption of Naoki Urasawa's Monster for years.

One thing that's pretty messed up about my taste in  movies is that I actually prefer the American versions of The Ring (the first one anyway) and Let Me In (Let the Right One In)

I also liked the Ginger Snaps movies

Only the first one, not the sequel(s). I would probably need to rewatch it since it’s been awhile. 

How about ‘What Dreams May Come’ and ‘The Lovely Bones’?

Heard a lot of good things about Battle Royal. And that it helped inspire the battle royal trend in videogames today. 

Is it a Japanese film?

As for me, I enjoy watching old black and white movies. Not that I'm trying to be artsy or anything. I just feel there are old movies everyone should watch before they die. As not to miss out.

So I started with The Godfather and went from there. Citizen Kane, Rear Window, and so on. And recently I watched Psycho.
