This week we've watched Fury Road, Master and Commander and Edge of Tomorrow. Recs of other well-crafted action movies with efficient stories? Bonus points if it's something that delivers the kind of physical opulence that Mad Max / M & C revels in.

You may have already seen 'em but these come to mind: Hot Fuzz, Attack the Block, Crank 1&2, Kingdom of Heaven Directors Cut, Kong Skull Island, Serenity, Akira, and Redline.

edit: also Dunkirk, 1917, Prometheus and Snowpiercer might fit the bill.

The other night I watched American Pop with some friends and while opinions were divided, we all agreed that, despite the fact that the film takes place mostly in the same place, the whole thing felt like an enormous journey. What are some other films that achieve a similar emotion?

Examples of movies where there's one character talking about something really outlandish and it's mostly dismissed by the other characters only to be revealed in the 3rd act that they were right? Or just any movie where there's a hard turn in the 3rd act into something very different. Examples: (obviously, spoilers follow): 10 Cloverfield Lane, From Dusk to Dawn (although the hard turn comes in the second act), Dude Where's My Car, A Serious Man (maybe?). I suppose Conspiracy Theory fits although it's obvious from the first minute how things will unfold later.

Also, is Mysterious Skin any good?

E: I should clarify that I'm not talking about movies where a character tries to convince people about something the audience is already aware of ala Jaws, Godzilla movies, disaster movies, where we know the scientist character who is being ignored is right. I'm more interested in movies that look skeptically at the doomsayer.

The Lodge on Hulu. I put this one off because it looked like another generic "haunted house" kind of movie to me (I try not to make these pre-judgements but I always fall victim to it).

It turned out to not be that at all.

It's very well down psychological horror with a lot of "look and feel" references to The Shining. I totally even missed the reference with the dog's name. The characters actually watch The Thing at one point and this movie is just about in the same class for the genre.

Highly recommended!

Dersu Uzala (1975) also comes to mind but it's more about rugged living than farming.

Pretty much all of them. Elle, Black Book, Basic Instinct, The Fourth Man, and Showgirls all rule. Flesh and Blood is not very good but it's interestingly weird. Hollow Man is also not great but you can see where there was a much better movie at some point in the process that got chopped up.
