The Best Movie You've Never Seen


#1

Anyone see "Saint Ralph?"

The weird, pudgy dude at Blockbuster told me to rent it, and he looked like he really knew movies. So I did, and it was fan-freakin-tastic.

See it.


#2

I strongly encourage everyone to rent/buy the movie "Disco Godfather." A movie like this one comes but once in a lifetime.


#3

What's it about?


#4

Yeah, that looks pretty badass.


#5

"Falling Down" with Michael Douglas was a pretty good one I'm sure a lot of you haven't seen.


#6

Great fucking movie.

I'll had "The Power of One" to the list.. another great one that most people haven't heard of.


#7

Primer is a decent flick (sci-fi, time-travel).
I didn't know about it until I rented it earlier this week.


#8

Did that take place in Australia? I saw that and it was really good - but I read the book several years earlier and it was great.


#9

Boondock Saints and Equilirbium if you havent seen either of those they are great. Especially Boondock Saints... one of my all-time favorites.


#10

"The Power of One" was an awesome flick. Some cool boxing scenes in there...

Acogida, which "great fucking movie" were you referring to?


#11

I saw it.


#12

If this is the movie I am thinking about then "Put your weight on it, put your weight on it!!".


#13

If you watched the old Aeon Flux's then rent the new movie, it's great.

Godfather I and II

The Big Lebowski


#14

You really need to watch "Overnight", about the making of Boondock Saints. I hope it won't ruin Boondock Saints for you. It didn't for me.


#15

I second Boondock saints

Also poolhall junkies


#16

"The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover" from Peter Greenaway.
I also recommend "the baby of macon" and "the belly of an architect" from the same director.

Nobody makes movies like he does. It's pure visual poetry.


#17

'Closer' with Julia Robers, Clive Owen, Natalie Portman, and Jude law.


#18

"Shaun Of The Dead"


#19

"Funny Games" (German w/subtitles)
"Stratosphere Girl"
"The Professional"


#20

Falling Down. Definately one of my favorites. Not sure if I would classify it as a comedy, but I laughed the whole way through all the same.
