We all know that film buff, the one who is always telling you about this great movie you haven’t seen but definitely need to because it’s the BEST.
Don’t be that guy.
Sometimes, though, we do discover total gems of movies that hardly anyone has heard of, and then we want to shout it from the rooftops – and if that’s the sort of flick you’re in the mood for today, we’ve got 9 undiscovered gems down below!
9. Stardust (2007)
“It seems relatively unknown and is quite a fun movie.
It’s like a newer, ultra British, steampunk Princess Bride.”
8. Big Night (1996)
“Stanley Tucci and Tony Shalhoub playing two Italian brothers working at a restaurant in the 50s.
Absolutely wonderful and raw and real— terrific actors, characters, cinematography, just all around a phenomenal movie”
7. The Ghost and the Darkness (1996)
“It’s essentially like JAWS but with lions.”
6. Reign Over Me (2007)
“F*ckin’ Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle in a dark drama.
Acting and plot are absolutely riveting.
Who woulda thought?”
5. Take Shelter (2011)
“Michael Shannon is incredible in this thriller movie.”
4. Mind Game (2004)
“An anime film unlike any other, and (in my humble opinion) one of the best animated films I’ve ever seen regardless of country.
Imagine if you put about five different styles of animation, the anarchic humor of the Looney Tunes, an explicit R-rating, and weirdly heavy ruminations on what it means to be alive/live a life into a blender, and you only have a slight idea of what you’re in for when you watch it.”
3. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (1990)
“Maybe the best example of amazing acting dwarfing the actual movie.”
2. Frailty (2001)
“It’s this great psychological film about this boy whose dad comes home one day and says he’s had a vision that God has tasked him with “destroying demons”.
So it’s basically a kid trying to deal with his dad going crazy and becoming a serial killer.”
1. Dead Man’s Shoes (2004)
“It’s a British film which sees a soldier return to his depressing home town where his younger brother was exploited and bullied by a gang of pathetic drug dealers.
It’s a masterpiece on how intimidation can be presented. Watch it”
I’m adding these to my list, how about you?
