Well, I almost got out of it after a short time but I'm glad I stayed with it. It's on Tubi, "In the Forest" is the name and it's supposed to be horror and I suppose it is, as in horrible, the movie that is. But I hung in there thinking ,"No movie can be this bad.". I was wrong, it went from bad to much worse and so bad that for the last 30 minutes or so I was laughing at how bad it was. Characters following the storyline and doing absolutely stupid, ridiculous things that no one would ever in their right mind do. But anything to keep the horrible going to fill the allotted time. I would have used an alias so as not to be connected to it.

Watch it and be astounded at just how bad a movie can be. There are movies lower than B movies and this is one of them. That is it's value. It's actually hilarious.

FWIW, it took me 4 movies that didn't make the cut to get me to this one; they weren't quite bad enough it seems, but they were pretty bad.

Oppenheimer.  Finally, a movie without exploding cars, cartoon super beings or pink dolls.  While the movie is quite long (about three hours), I found myself completely engrossed and the long time didn’t matter. 

Older films:

Hero.  Starring Jet Li, this is an excellent martial arts film with an interesting story line.

A Night to Remember.  This 1958 black and white British telling of the Titanic story puts James Cameron’s overblown story to shame.

La Belle et la Bête (Beauty and the Beast).  It was directed by Jean Cocteau in 1946.  Unlike Disney’s musical animated take (which I did enjoy, by the way) this French version is closer to the true tale and visually beautiful for its time.

To Kill a Mockingbird.  Of the movies I have seen where I read the book first, this came closest to the source material.  Gregory Peck easily deserved his best actor Oscar as Atticus Finch.

Schindler’s List.  For me, this was Steven Spielberg’s finest film (and that’s something considering his other absolutely amazing films).  Just be prepared to be mentally drained if you haven’t already seen it.

There are so many others and, obviously, these choices are completely subjective but each left an impression on me.

Hayao Miyazaki's movie Spirited Away

If you have Prime Video, The Expanse, all 6 seasons. Excellent science fiction, with plausible science.

Also The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel. Hilarious, with sparkling dialog.

(If you can find it) Killing Eve (series) - a sort of cat-and-mouse game with Sandra Oh hunting deadly-but-charming assasin Jodie Comer.

I'd highly recommend "Inception" if you haven't seen it already. It's a mind-bending thriller with a fantastic plot and mind-blowing visuals. Christopher Nolan did an incredible job, and it's a movie that leaves you thinking long after it's over. And here, you can find movies playing in theaters now. I hope that helps!
