I take care of the the disabled (primarily the mentally disabled), and I work the nocturnal shift, meaning that for something like seven hours of each shift, everyone's asleep. During this time, I do a couple hours of cleaning and preparing for the morning, and will have various situations that need to be dealt with throughout the night, but I'm left with a lot of free time. I don't want to fall asleep, because I may be needed, for anything from needing to make a client's bed for them to a medical emergency. I've ended up watching movies on my laptop a lot, but I'm quickly running out of things I want to watch. Any suggestions for good movies? Some of the movies I've brought to work so far that I've enjoyed have been Silver Linings Playbook, Pulp Fiction, Clerks, Clerks 2, Dogma, Limitless, Paranoid Park, Spun and A Scanner Darkly.

Has The Pit changed since I stopped browsing regularly? Because you guys are all being really helpful and not arguing with each other, and I just don't remember this ever happening. Thanks for all the suggestions everyone, I'm looking forward to my next few shifts thanks to you.

I would highly recommend it, I saw that clip on UG actually and had to watch the movie. It might not be a movie for everyone but I loved it . Content aside, the cinematography is actually phenomenal in its brilliant incorporation of a myriad of techniques.

Requiem For a Dream is a great movie, but I never intend to watch it again. I consider myself to be a very empathetic person, and as a result, I just find myself depressed after watching the ending of the movie... I mean, artistically, it's an achievement, it's a climax of misery, it's so well done, but I just don't want to see it again.

Yeah, the misery I felt during was a lot more genuine than it is with most other depressing films.

I watched Devil's Own recently, that was good. This is a bit feminine of me but I loved Safety Not Guaranteed, it's quite... charming. Also in a much opposite light, Bronson is one of the funniest films I've ever seen (may have been situational)
I eat bananas vigorously

BUTTS.

To the pit because i don't feel like doing real life.

You should totally watch Ikiru if you aren't bored with black and white movies.

Are you into watching TV at all? That can be engaging. Why not watch some seasons of shows you might like?

I'm definitely not a movie-buff, so TV is pretty much the only suggestion I can give, aside from echoing others here.


I suggest:

How I Met Your Mother
Two 1/2 Men (Early episodes. Stop around season 2)
Big Bang Theory
Community
Parks and Rec
Hannibal
Game of Thrones
Doctor Who
Lost
Arrested Development
Firefly
Fringe
Children's Hospital
NTSF:SD:SUV
Eagle Heart
The Office (US and UK)
Saturday Night Live


And if you're into cartoons/animated shows:

Adventure Time
Regular Show
The Amazing World of Gumball
Star Wars: the Clone Wars (Both series)
Venture Bros.
American Dad
Bob's Burgers
The Simpsons (Earlier episodes)
The "Road To..." episodes of Family Guy, or really any Brian and Stewie-centric episodes
Metalocalypse


I'm more of a comedy-guy, but I included some must-watches in there too. Sorry if these don't really work. It's all I got, suggestion-wise.

man, I'm so sad I made this thread now after seeing those shake shack burgers. I would buy an extra just to fuck it while I eat its siblings. then i'd eat that one too.

I dunno if you're into it, but foreign cinema can be good here because there's usually a whole catalogue of good films you've never seen. Though finding good rips can be a bit of a hassle.

I'm going through everything Takeshi Kitano has done and I'm also trying to get through a long list of japanese animated films (previously I had only really watched ghibli/miyazaki stuff)

Also, I suggest going through a tv series every once in a while to shake things up between endless movies. If you've got internet, you could also try debates/discussions like TED talks on youtube, if you're into that sort of thing. You could also put some turn-based strategy games on your laptop as you can take your time with them, so they shouldn't really take up your whole attention.

If I were in your position, I'd also read books and graphic novels too, as just sitting and watching can get tedious. You could also try doing something creative with that free time, like drawing, writing music, wood carving, etc. I personally practice origami when I have shifts doing nothing (sometimes when I need extra cash, I do late night reception shifts at A&E, which is pretty dull on weekdays)
O.K.

I'll probably get a few seasons of a show or two as well. I'll also probably end up bringing books as soon as I figure out what I want to read. As far a hobby, I've been meaning to find something to do, but the problem is that it has to be something that wouldn't suffer from being interrupted, because I never know how many times my clients are going to need me throughout the night. I was thinking about maybe taking the time to work out a bit, but at 2 AM, it's a little hard to get yourself to start doing some sit-ups.

This. Some of my favourites are Chinese and Norwegian films- There are some great historical epics from China and Norway makes really good black comedies.

I actually like the idea of writing during my shifts; it's probably the quietest time I have all day. Turn-based games are a good idea as well, but I feel I spend too much time gaming already, so I should probably limit that.
