Movie recommendations

Boredom has struck and ive run out of old dvds to watch. Started with Fight Club, then Lock Stock n twoSmoking Barrels, Layer Cake, 3000 miles to Graceland, 7 Psychopaths, Rocknrolla etc. You probably get my genre. Suggestions are most welcome

Sounds like the John Wick trilogy would be a good fit……first one was great.

Some recent random movies I’ve enjoyed while on the indoor trainer: Baby Driver, Rush, Prey (on Hulu), and The Suicide Squad (the second one). I don’t particularly enjoy movies that are too heavy on dialogue while riding the bike, even on endurance rides.

@Ged17 Have you saw any of the Tarrantino films? Kill Bill 1&2, Reservoir Dogs etc.

Good movies I’ve recently watched while riding indoors include Weekend, The Great Silence, La Notte, A Woman Is A Woman, A Brighter Summer’s Day, High Plains Drifter, Alice In The Cities, Kind Hearts And Coronets, Journey To Italy, Nashville, The Tin Drum, Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia, Diabolique and Blow-up.

Once Upon a Time in London. Cracking British underworld film based on true events. Well worth a watch.

Prey is awesome movie

Sounds like we have similar on the bike taste. Looking at your list, have you seen In Bruges?

Most of the Marvel and DC movies are good for high distraction low dialogue high intensity intervals. If you like cheesy jokes and violence, The Boys and Peacemaker fit the bill. I second the John Wick recommendation. If you like that, Nobody, with Bob Odenkirk was good.

For those Z2 rides where you can stand dialogue, there are tons of good series on HBO and Netflix in the “gangster” genre. Peaky Blinders, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Succession…

I haven’t watched it yet, but the trailers for Bullet Train give off Tarantino/Ritchie kind of vibes.

The Gold on BBC iplayer is brilliant… 6 part true story of a robbery where the thieves stumbled upon 6 tonnes of gold by accident and how they managed to get it into the market.

I suggest Nobody and Driver. Don’t judge them based on the actors. Both pretty good “action” movies for the trainer.

There’s also a six part pod on the BBC Sounds app about John Palmer (the guy who smelted all the gold in Gold).

Some excellent suggestions. Many id forgotten

The Harder They Fall might be up your alley. A little different than what you list but has some good music and was really well done overall. Another recent-ish release would be Bullet Train - that one kept me glued to the screen the whole movie

If you like Guy Ritchie movies I’d recommend Man From U.N.C.L.E.

A little international espionage, some action, Elizabeth Debicki, what more could you ask for?

Yea, enjoyed bullet train, i need to do some downloading as no internet whr i train😢

Bullet Train was funny.

Fall (Netflix) - I could hardly watch it!, about a couple of lady’s climbing up a radio transmission tower.

2nd on Bullet Train.

Also Atomic Blond, Salt, Wanted, RRR (it’s bonkers and great!), Pacific Rim (who doesn’t like big robots putting the smack down on big monsters?)
