I like to drink.  And I like movies.

What are the best movies to watch alone and drink?

Please explain your reasoning.

The Raid 2, 2½ hours of mindless, great action. The first film is good, but the sequal is just fucking brutal. Watching a bunch of Indonesians going ham is a great experience to watch.

Interstellar I think is a good movie to watch with some drink, though I usually skip the first third or so of the movie.  I skip ahead to when the Endurance takes off because up to then it's just boring exposition and plot-convenience, the actual story starts when they take off into space.  Still, I recommend it.

Haywire is another one that I like.  Gina Carano, Ewan Mcgregor.   It's a realistic spy movie like the Bourne movies, but with alot more style and pizzazz, with a cool, jazzy soundtrack.  I love it, but maybe it's just because really I'm a bigger fan of Gina Carano (for the obvious reasons).

I've discovered that Black Sea is a very good drinking movie, but maybe it's just because I really love submarines.  Jude Law playing a heavy Scottish accent, check it out, it's a really, really good movie.

One Hour Photo I just discovered not too long ago, but I've watched it many, many times in just the few months I've known it, it's a good drinking movie for me too.

And The Prestige, something about that movie just holds my attention for the full length of the movie, it can keep me drinking longer than most movies.

I've only watched Oblivion once before and it was in theaters, so I don't really know if it's a good drinking movie or not, but I highly suspect that it will be, I recently acquired it so I'll find out soon enough.  Tom Cruise and the very beautiful Olga Kurylenko in a very original recent scifi movie, great special effects and visuals.

Oblivion is a decent movie, nothing really stands out about it except the brilliant soundtrack that is composed (in part) by M83, the song in the ending credits kicks arse.

When I'm drinking I like films that aren't very plot heavy (as much as The Prestige is a great movie, it's just a film I prefer sober).

I'm gonna check out the ones you recommended though, since I'm getting hammered and all my mates have gone to bed so I don't have anything better to do really.

The new Mad Max is pretty good whilst drunk too, good mindless action and very linear plot.

Oh yeah man, I love the soundtrack to Oblivion, but I'm a big-time love of cinematic music in general, I have more movie soundtracks in my music collection than anything else.  I love the track "Starwaves" and the heavy percussion in "Radiation Zone" during the aerial chase scene.  And yeah, the end credit song is fantastic too.

Actually, I like plot-heavy movies to drink to, but then again, I love stories in general, I like to watch stuff that is mentally engaging and that moves me, the Prestige is definitely one of those kind of movies.  The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya is another one of those movies, but I try to avoid that one because it's just so damn good it's not the kind of movie that I want to watch too much, but it's difficult to do because I love it so much.  But that belongs on the anime board anyways.

Yeah I love OST:s too, listening to cinematic stuff makes you imagine so many scenes to fit the music in your head.

I too love mentally engaging movies - I just prefer "baby food" movies after a few pints, as it allows me to divert my focus whenever I feel like it without losing track of what's going on.

Almost all Bruce Lee movies. Kickass fighting scenes become even better.
