I'm a firm believer that we all vote with our money, especially when it comes to movies, which is why I'm confused when I hear about people saying they are sick of particular genres but don't stop paying to go see them. That said, I myself don't have much of a problem with sequels and adaptations but at the same time I also like putting my voting money into films that have an original script so that it helps in encouraging Hollywood to put more effort in keeping original scripts alive. I do this by buying the physical copies as a gift, or treating them to watching it in theaters, and if I'm being cheap then I'll at least recommend it to some people who would probably like it and buy it. Anyway, back to the original point of this thread. I'd like to hear some of your recent favorite movies that aren't direct adaptations of movies, comics, books, or sequels/prequels. I'll start with a somewhat recent favorite of mine which is Inglorious Basterds. Django was also pretty good but I liked Inglorious a bit more.
