What movie do you love that most people never heard of or seen? Mine is a movie called "Evenhand". I first saw it on IFC, then ordered a copy from Amazon. It is about two policemen in a small Texas town. One is meek and kind while the other is hard. They form a unlikley friendship. It is more plot driven, with little violence. The writing is pretty good.

Here ya go.

“THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY”
Funniest movie ever!
“Take him the the helicopter!”
“Aiii yaiii, yaiii, yaiii, yaiii,!”
“I don’t want to talk about it!”
My son & nephew watched that time after time one summer and memorized most of the dialog.
“How did the Land Rover get in the tree?”
“I don’t want to talk about it!”
“Did you know that she has flowers on her panties?”
“So THAT”S how the Land Rover got in the tree!”
[not exactly what you are thinking]
“That’s a wait-a-minute bush! You must not mess with a wait-a-minute bush!”
I was always scouring the rental places for period films, foreign films, and anything that piqued my interest. For some reason, Oriental never appealed to me, but I liked the Bridge over the River Kwai.
“Brazil”. Anyone who says it’s a comedy is in denial.
Made for about 10K
all about computer engineers
What’s not to like?
Watch it with friends.
You will need to talk about it and see it twice.
When I saw this thread, I thought of “A Man Called Peter.” My all-time favorite western is “The Ballad of Cable Hogue.”
The Three Burials of Melquiades - Tommy Lee Jones, Barry Pepper and Dwight Yoakam
Snow Walker - Barry Pepper, Annabella Piugattuk, and James Cromwell
Luther - Joseph Fiennes, Peter Ustinov, and Bruno Ganz
Winter’s Bone - Jennifer Lawrence, John Hawkes, and Garret Dillahunt
Bloodworth - Val Kilmer, Kris Kristofferson, Dwight Yoakam, and Hilary Duff
Tomorrow - Robert Duvall, Olga Bellin, Sudie Bond, Peter Masterson, and Johnny Mask
Intruder in the Dust - David Brian, Claude Jarman Jr., Will Geer, and Juano Hernandez
A more current pick would be “Goodnight, Mr. Tom.”
Here is the trailer for PRIMER
Is that the movie where one guy dies as a shooting star —> “what a beautiful way to die”?
An epic classic!
“The Gods Must be Crazy”
Mpudi: [looking at Steyn in a suit] And why are you so beautiful?
Steyn: I’m going to the school to give her these.
Mpudi: You gonna look like that?
Steyn: Like what?
Mpudi: Like it’s a funeral. You’ve gotta smile and tell her she looks good.
Steyn: How are you an expert on women?
Mpudi: I got seven wives. How many you got?
Steyn: Why aren’t you at home with them?
Mpudi: I know how to marry them. Nobody knows how to live with them.
Steyn: So, what did you marry them for?
Mpudi: Someday I have to tell you the facts of life...
“Yessir that’s my baby”
Great movie. Classic Robards.
I’ll add “The Great Santini”. Duvall chews up the scenery, but it’s still a classic.
The Jacket with Adrian Brody.
My Aunt and Uncle knew him fairly well. When my Aunt joined her husband and Price for dinner, she chatted and was distracted. Eventually she smiled her delightful smile and asked “Well, Mr Price what do you do for work.” Price was gracious and depreciating and after about ten minutes it came to Auntie that this was Vincent Price. She blushed and stammered sweetly and it was all fine.
I agree, was fairly factual too. The Russian defenders at Brest threw a monkey wrench in Hitlers easy victory for that segment of the front.
In the initial invasion (Operation Barbarossa) of Russia, most all other defenses quickly collapsed and troops surrendered by the hundreds of thousands. But not at Brest, they literally fought to the last man.
Drama - Independence Day (not the spaceship movie)
Comedy - Bowfinger
Western - The Ox-Bow Incident
Foreign - Jean de Florette and Manon of the Spring
Horror - The Changeling (George C Scott)
Action - The Challenge (Scott Glenn)
Shall we Dance? (original in Japanese, american remake wasn’t that great)
La Femme Nikita (The remake with Brigette Fonda was almost a pure copy)
The sad thing is many people think the worst thing that can happen to them is their physical death.
"Death is like a covered bridge:
a small bit of darkness when crossing from light to Light."
The Odessa File, staring Jon Voight
I’ve always read that he was one of the nicest actors in Hollywood. Actually, pretty much all horror directors and actors alike have a reputation for being very nice, gracious people. Maybe they get to work off a lot of repressed hostility!
Since Hollywood hasn’t had an original thought in thirty years, an American company is re-making “Dragon Tattoo.” With Danial Craig.
Good, but I prefer the 1953 b/w film, "Martin Luther," with Niall MacGinnis as Luther. I went to Lutheran grade school, and we saw it every year at Reformation time. Now I am a Lutheran pastor, and I still think it's great.
The Sentinel (1977).
The Skeleton Key (2005).
Norwood ( 1970 )
Honky Tonk Freeway ( 1981 )
O.C. and Stiggs ( 1985 )
Erik the Viking (1989)
None of these could be considered great cinema by any stretch of the imagination but are offbeat, likable, and not done to death, before or after their release.
I love The Sacketts, which was made for television in the late 70’s starring Sam Elliott, Tom Selleck, Glenn Ford, Jeff Osterhage, and Ben Johnson.
Maybe they get to work off a lot of repressed hostility!
I saw “A Man Called Peter” a month or so back on DVD. At the end it included one of Peter Marshall’s sermons only in audio.
Hearing that sermon with him speaking in his Scottish lilt was spellbinding.
One of the great cult movies of all time. I have a VHS copy I got off the tube that I watch from time to time. Long live Ticklaw, Florida!!
I saw The Hill a couple of years ago and found it riveting. I think Sean Connery was trying to get away from his James Bond typecasting. Hard to forget James, but the movie was swell.
You mean, OJ Simpson was an astronaut before he went to prison? ;-)
Looks like the whole thing’s on YouTube.
In the Pianist, (based on true WW-2 story) Adrien Brody was great too, even if it was directed by the pervert Roman Polanski.
Bronson fan, huh? Then I recommend
Yes, that's the one. The beach ball alien scene was by far my most favorite of the whole movie. Remember it tapping it's foot?
“Rolling Thunder” - William Devane and a very young Tommy Lee Jones kick some border slime azz.
The Steel Helmet - Gene Evans and Korea
New movie: Javier Bardem is outstanding in “Bitiful”
Robert Duvall is out of character in “Assassination Tango” but handles it well.
Big Fish. Tall tales told by a father are an embarrassment to his adult son, but the stories turn out to be based on truth and the son understands their meaning as his father passes away.
The Miracle of Marcelleno also known as Marcelleno, Pan a Vino is a post WWII movie about an Italian orphan and a monestary.
It is about a little boy who wants to find his mom.
Makes me cry everytime.
The Pentagon Wars
His best movie, IMO. Hard to beat the supporting cast, too. Gene Hackman and Fred Thompson are always excellent.
I am glad you mentioned the 1953 “Martin Luther.” I haven’t seen it in years. I need to watch it again.
I am thankful for the Joseph Fiennes version of Luther because it helped stoke my daughter’s interest in Christian history and theology.
