    [Movies] Great movies that nobody seems to talk about?

    I don't know why, but I got to thinking about Pan's Labyrinth today. For some reason, nobody ever seems to talk about it, yet I actually consider it among one of the better, unique movies I've ever seen. It's definitely strange, and DEFINITELY not a "feel-good" movie, but it just really left an impression on me, for some reason.

    What are some other great, but often-overlooked movies? Something that either never got much exposure, or that "everyone's heard about, but nobody's ever seen"?

    Requiem for a Dream is very overlooked. If/When I mention it when talking to friends almost nobody seem to heard about it. And if they did they have not seen it.

    I really liked the movie "Moon," but no one seems to have heard of it... it's part Castaway, part 2001: A space odyssey.

    "Mr. Nobody" is one of my favorites. I don't know that many people who've seen it without me forcing them to.

    Blood In Blood Out. The acting is really cheesy at times but It's a really good movie. I only know one other person that has seen it or even heard about it.

    Oh and, The Station Agent. It's the movie that launch Peter Dinklage's career, awesome little indie film.

    Some more known, but still not talked about so much movies -

    Training Day. One of my personal favorites, this movie is remembered by most as "the one where Denzel Washington won an oscar." But the writing in this movie is freaking awesome. Very deep themes. All the actors do very well, and the pacing is excellent.

    Children of Men. Nobody ever seems to mention this, but its probably the best movie I've ever seen. Everything about it is amazing.

    Some lesser known movies few people have heard of -

    Drive. Great movie. Would recommend it to anyone.

    The Road. A few of you may have seen this, but its still not talked about as much as it should be. Very well made film.

    I watched it when it first came out, because i love 30 Seconds to Mars. The movie is great and deserves more attention.

    I'm guessing most people haven't heard of a movie called Hesher. Best movie I've seen in a really long time.
    When a man lies, he murders some part of the world.
    These are the pale deaths which men miscall their lives.
    All this I cannot bear to witness any longer.

    you didn't like galaxy quest, that movie is great! I also only found brick to be just ok, like its just a noir movie in color and in high school.

    My pick: Oldboy - Dude is locked up for years and years in a motel room, get let out one day, awesome fight scenes ensue
