    Shelter(2007), Prayers for Bobby. I guess those two are no wonder because, yeah, it has "gay" scenes and I wouldn't admire myself if it got overlooked by a lot of people, especially the second one since it didn't went on the cinema and it was premiered on TV instead.

    Asides from that The Help, Let The Right One In and City of God.

    That's all I remember now or think that is kinda overlooked.

    Just saw this on TV the other day, can't believe I've never seen it. Watch it. Now.

    Oldboy(actually, basically everything the director has done could qualify)
    I Saw the Devil
    Suspiria(people told me how "scary" movies like Blair Witch and Paranormal Activity were, I saw them and wasn't impressed at all, didn't come close to the atmosphere and horror this one did)

    Other movies that have been mentioned like Children of Men and Pan's Labyrinth are very good, but these were movies that were pretty highly acclaimed when they came out, too.

    The Raven? You mean that p.o.s. about Edgar Allen Poe that basically stole it's storyline from Castle... yeah there's a reason people don't talk about that film .

    I would say In Bruges. I've shown that film to so many people and the reaction has always been "OMFG how have I not heard about this film before now" It's the only film I've seen Colin Farrel in where I've NOT wanted to hit him, add in Brendon Gleeson, Raplh Fiennes and a RAZOR sharp script and there's no reason for anyone NOT to like this film. Unless you've got a problem with large amounts of swearing...

    My pick: Oldboy - Dude is locked up for years and years in a motel room, get let out one day, awesome fight scenes ensue
    What about the lion king :O?

    OT: Most of Paul Thomas Anderson’s (one of my favorite directors/screenwriters) movies are not well-known to the mainstream audience, note Hard Eight, Magnolia (one of my favorite movies) and Punch-Drunk Love (also one of my favorite movies). Synecdoche, New York by one of my other favorite filmmakers, Charlie Kaufman. It is one of the most ambitious, intelligent and well made movies I have ever seen, and it is a masterpiece. 25th Hour from 2002, directed by Spike Lee, a drama with an excellent ensemble with multiple nomination-worthy supporting performances and a (so far) career-best performance by Edward Norton as a man who has 25 hours of freedom before going to jail, a stunning drama with one of the best scenes I can remember. And at last, Sidney Lumet’s last film, Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, a superb crime drama about two brothers who plan to rob their parents’ jewelry store, and everything goes wrong. The movie then chronicles the 2 brothers and their father as they deal with the outcome.


    Just realized all the movies I mentioned are starring Philip Seymour Hoffman. No wonder he is my favorite actor.

    1941. Cracks my shit up and the cast list is amazing.

    Airplane. Really the only people that talk about it often are involved int he aviation industry. it needs a wider audience.
    Get a grip man! It's CHEESE!

    Agreed. Similar to Braveheart and Rob Roy....came out at almost same time but Rob Roy was completely overshadowed by Braveheart. Braveheart is an outstanding movie but, IMO, Rob Roy was better.

    I hated Drive

    Those awkward 5 minute silent stares between the two characters just annoyed me and were so uncomfortble and unrealistic. If someone looked at me like that I'd wonder wtf he was staring at. I found myself wanting to fast forward it a few times. The best thing for me that came out if that movie, was it's soundtrack

    Like you I did not like Drive. Drive was straight up boring. There I said it. The movie had its moments but certainly doesn't hold a candle to There Will Be Blood.

    Drive was a great movie, and I enjoyed every single moment of it. But sure, If you were expecting something like "Fast and the furious" you should probably have watched a different movie.

    Well, that's your opinion, but I thought it was very well done and certainly not boring. There Will Be Blood was great also.

    I actually tried to give it a try but I couldn't bear myself to watch it, it was just... so boring and nothing interesting was happening...

    I need to give it a try again though. :/
