  • What's your favorite film that isn't too popular?

    Labyrinth has come up in these forums a few times and I bought it for my son (ok, actually for me) last year.

    BraveHeart was popular when it was released, but I don't hear much talk about it anymore. Excellent film. I remember when it came out, lots of people talked about how violent it was, but watching it now, it doesn't seem that violent compared to other films. I guess society is becoming more desensitized? Eh, that's a discussion for the Sandbox...

    So, what's your favorite film that a lot of people here might not have seen?

        Memento.

        Most people I talk to have not heard of it, original story for sure.

            Watching Memento damaged my brain.

              Arlington Road with Jeff Bridges and a creepy Tim Robbins. Great story about the terrorist next door...and probably one of the best endings for a suspense/thriller movie.

                    Memento was awesome. For comedy i liked Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy, but it was probably only good if you had read the book.

                      I think Snatch may be my all-time favorite movie... not sure if it "isn't too popular" though (??)

                      Red Dawn is an oldie but goodie... definitely shaped my adolescence... as the wall was still up, the concept of a russian invastion wasn't TOTALLY preposterous - we'd run around the woods w/ our pellet-guns, swiss-army and "rambo" knives, stashing canned goods and other "survival gear" :icon_lol: you know, just in case....

                      edit: random trivia - Red Dawn was the very first Movie to receive a PG-13 rating.

                        seven samurai! that movie is beyond classic
                        and aliens is my fav action movie
                        as far as horror ...i think carpenters "the thing" (i cant get enough of wilford brimley!)
                        then the last would be willow..... the best adventure movie ever (though pretty popular in its time)

                          Memento and Arlington Road are good ones too.

                              Equilibrium was actually a pretty good movie. i liked the firefight scenes. Super stylized hollywood firefights really well done imho.

                              Way of the Gun: Movie about 2 criminals kidnapping a pregnant surragote mother to ransom the fetus. Great firefight scenes there, very realistic in my opinion. Simple things like bullet strikes before shot being fired, muzzle flashes followed by bullet strikes followed by noise. Simple things...

                              "Better off dead and cool, then alive and uncool" A quote (I think) from another favourite movie.
