movies that i don't think get enough shine are Bubba Ho-Tep. I saw this at the Toronto film festival and found it hilariously creative. Doberman is a cool french movie with lots of guns. My buddy had to order it from Thailand. Ricky Oh, the Story Of Ricky was a great find at Jumbo Video. Ricky is a damn superhero if i've ever seen one. And Tiger Cage 2 was the goodness. I caught this on Kung Fu Friday @ the Royal Theatre in Toronto. Hope you guys have a chance to check some of these out.

Mystery of Chessboxing is such a bad ass kung fu film. So very hard to find though...

Dr. Strangelove. This is a pretty well known film but I find too many kids that dont know about it. Personally, one of my all time favorites

In the Mouth of Madness. also a pretty well known film but good none the less. I love this movie.

holy mountain


"The Holy Mountain was Alexandro Jodorowsky's dizzying elegy to the sex, drugs and spiritual awakening of the late 1960s and early 1970s — a suitably bizarre follow-up to his El Topo (1971). Fascinating, The Holy Mountain is beautifully shot and designed, and it suggests what might have resulted if Luis Buñuel, Michelangelo Antonioni, and George Romero had all dropped acid and made a movie together. A Christ-like vagrant and thief wanders through a perverse and unfriendly land until he encounters an enlightened one, who gathers the thief and six of the world's most powerful individuals for a spiritual pilgrimage. If that description sounds a bit sketchy, well, narrative isn't this film's strongest suit. But if you want to see the conquest of Mexico re-enacted by reptiles, soldiers shoot innocent people as birds fly from their wounds, and a wizard turn feces into gold, this is the movie for you."

Mean Streets......... One of the best performances given by Dinero, and of course it was directed by, the great, Scorsese. Most movie heads should know about this, but I do find that many people don't. A must see.

Also, Serpico....... This movie proves that Pachino is the man. Filmed in between the Godfather and Godfather Pt 2.

Be easy,

Broken Vessels (1999)

Synopsis: The story of two emergency medical technicians, Tom, an earnest and seemingly innocent young man from Pennsylvania who has moved to Los Angeles where he lands this intense and challenging job; and Jimmy, his unflappable and reliable veteran partner, who is seriously reckless and desperate. For both men, the thrill in "life-saving" is surpassed only by their thirst for a heroin-induced delirium. Their journey turns into an experiment into pushing the limits and it quickly evolves into a journey through the drug underworld as they careen off the edge and out of control.

George Washington

I would also say that most current moviegoers probably aren't familiar with Days of Heaven or Badlands, though they might have seen the thin red line.

Miller's Crossing, since it hasn't been on DVD until now. Even though many people are familiar with other Coen bros. flicks, this is one of their very best and I doubt most people are too familiar with it.

Also, I doubt too many people have Glengarry Glenross on their radar, which they should. It's got Al Pacino, Jack Lemon, Ed Harris, ALan Arkin and Kevin Spacey spittin David Mamet dialouge.

It's all relative though. In some groups these movies are very known, but in others they are very well known, so it just depends on your level of involvement.
