Okay, I've been meaning to make this thread for a while. This is for posting movies that you like, but are not very well known. So don't post shit like, Pirates of the Carribean. And if possible include the link to the IMDB. Example:

Big Trouble: This is a hilarious movie based on the novel by Dave Barry. It is the one movie that is extremely close to being just as good as the book. It has a great cast including: Stanley Tucci, DJ Qualls, Tim Allen, Jason Lee, and Jonny Knoxville. One of my favorite movies.

Got it? Good.

Heh, Big Trouble. I remember when its release was postponed because it was meant to come out around 9/11. It's a pretty funny movie, but then again I'm a HUGE fan of Jason Lee.

Let's see... my random recommendations:

Krippendorf's Tribe : When I first saw the previews for this movie, I thought it was simply going to be a waste of time. Later that year, I went on a cruise with my parents and it happened to be one of the movies that played on a loop on one of the movie channels. I sat down and watched it late at night and I really liked it. The story's about a widower with three children who is also a notable anthropologist. Prior to the film's story, he and his now-pasted on wife were given a huge grant to find a lost tribe in the south Pacific. Needless to say, the grant went to toward other things and no such tribe was found, thus our hero, Kripperdorf does the only thing he can to keep his ass out of jail: lie. He creates a completely ficticious tribe of natives in New Guinea and has his kids dress up and pretend to be them in homemade films, capturing the imaginations of the academic world.

Though the rating shows the film at a 4.5 out of 10, I think this film is thoroughly under-rated.

Then again I absolutely love Richard Dreyfuss, Lily Tomlin and Jenna Elfman.

Harold and Maude : This is one of those movies you just have to see for your own good. It really gives meaning to living life to its fullest and mocks the pillars of society. Pretty much a depressing young man meets an odd-ball elderly woman and she opens his eyes to the world and how much fun and life and beauty there is out there.

Orgazmo : One of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's earlier films that came out around the same time South Park started airing on television. The story and movie are pretty cheesy, but if you love Trey Parker or any of his work, it's well-worth checking out. Story follows a young Mormon elder on his mission in Hollywood who gets mixed up in the porn industry in order to pay off some of the expenses of his impending wedding in Salt Lake City. The film plays out like a bad porno with a story, but it's South Park-like humor the whole way.


I'll have more recs if anyone wants them later.
