Sometimes we recommend a movie or forcefully find ourselves watching a movie that we don’t like at all, a movie that looks really boring. If it can often end in a long dull moment, then on the contrary it comes as an excellent surprise. We bring you a small, totally subjective list of movies that, like that, made us feel like boring and that in the end were really great, somewhat like these movies that sounded bad but were great.
1- The breakfast club
Why does it look boring? Because it’s just the story of a few high school students who have nothing to do with each other and find themselves stuck all day Saturday. He said like that, he doesn’t break bricks.
Why is it actually good? Because it is really very well written and well acted, it has been a movie for a generation and we also recommend the movie Ferris Bueller from the same outlet.
2. There will be blood
Why does it look boring? Because it actually lasts 150 minutes and talks about a not necessarily nice guy who settles down in a small town where the only occupation is to go to church to make a fortune there by exploiting oil.
Why is it actually good? Because he’s one of the best directors in the world already, and what’s more, the story begins (gently) as it intensifies. And there’s also Daniel Day-Lewis, the man who has won more Oscars than his predecessors.
Why does it look boring? Because it’s the story of a lonely man who falls in love with the voice of an artificial intelligence. No kidding, that’s the story.
Why is it actually good? Since he’s so influential, he’s somewhat original and (not really surprising) Joaquin Phoenix plays very well.
4. Others’ lives
Why does it look boring? Because it tells the story of a man who works in German intelligence who watches over a wealthy couple in Berlin by listening to everything they say to each other. It’s mostly a guy in the attic listening to other people while typing on a typewriter basically.
Why is it actually good? Bah because the story is great at the end, we get attached to the character and understand why he strays from his mission more and more. I can’t say everything either, otherwise it would spoil the movie, but it’s great.
5. BV’s Odyssey
Why does it look boring? Because he’s just a kid who finds himself in the middle of the ocean on a small boat with a tiger. And he doesn’t meet anyone else, just a tiger.
Why is it actually good? Because not only is the story more awesome than it looks, but the movie is amazing visually, like you’re liking the groom’s clothes in the wedding scene you imagine before you sleep
6. The Strategist
Why does it look boring? Because it’s the true story of a man who began wanting to revolutionize the world of baseball by selecting players based on accurate stats about their skills rather than their rankings or fame. Admit it, it was said so, it’s pretty boring.
Why is it actually good? Because it’s really addictive, even if it’s about a sport whose rules and stats we don’t understand, well, it’s honestly done pretty well and we’re going down in history pretty quickly.
7. 12 angry men
Why does it look boring? Because it is behind closed doors in a courtroom where jurors are trying to determine whether the accused in the trial they have just seen is guilty or innocent. Not Avengers what or what
Why is it actually good? Because from the start we’re caught up in it and don’t give up on the story, even if it’s an old black and white movie (which isn’t an excuse not to watch one).
8. Into the wild
Why does it look boring? Because it’s only about a guy walking long distances for the rest of his life because he’s tired of working out. (Summary).
Why is it actually good? Since it’s a little deeper than that, it’s well filmed, sitting on a bus at some point. Personally, I didn’t like it any more, but you have to believe most people loved it when it looked boring like a morning at the DIY store.
9. Man from Earth
Why does it look boring? Because it was filmed with little means in an empty house as it revolves around a group of teachers saying goodbye to one of their departing classmates. But before leaving, he confesses to them that he is several thousand years old and they spend an hour discussing to see if he is not talking nonsense.
Why is it actually good? Actually, the movie is great, it is well written and very smart but when I talk to people they tell me it looks boring.
10. The Tree of Life (But Watch Out, It Splits)
Why does it look boring? Because it’s about family (I think) a lot of little scenes of life and things that have nothing to do with it accumulate. And there’s also thirty minutes with dinosaurs at the beginning of the movie, but I don’t know why.
Why is it actually good? It depends on the people, some hate it, but I personally found it cool, not like my great colleague Louise verbally in the movie. It’s hard to advise you.
11. Swiss Army Man
Why does it look boring? Because it is the story of a man who finds himself on a desert island with a corpse, and to get out of it he uses the corpse of (Daniel Radcliffe) who has a lot of powers. Like, he can fart loudly for the other to use like jet-skiing. This scene already exists.
Why is it actually good? Because it obviously won’t appeal to everyone, but it’s not boring, it’s a very deep movie about loneliness, depression, friendship, love and all the people who loved this movie share an unseen and unbreakable bond with them.
Why does it look boring? Because it’s the story of a lonely man on the moon with his robot and controlling a company’s production. On paper, it feels like a movie about a totally lonely factory night watchman. on the moon.
Why is it actually good? Because it’s really very well laid out, but I can’t tell you why, it goes on for an hour and twenty at the same time, so if I tell you too much about it, it ruins the whole movie. No kidding if you love SF watch the moon.
