“50 Best Movies That You’ve Never Seen.”

I’m pointing this one out solely because I’ve seen four or five or so movies on this list – and, yeah, I liked all of them. Although Idiocracy wasn’t quite as good as its buzz gives it credit for.  But The Ref more than makes up for it: it’s a family holiday favorite…

    Idiocracy annoyed me, but I agree with The Ref. I saw about 4 on the list, but I have to give major props to Layer Cake. It reminded me of why I like Guy Ritchie and got me geared up for the Daniel Craig era as Bond before Casino Royale.

  • xander says:

    I’ve seen 8 of the films. I recommend “Moon”, “Perfect Blue” and “Primer”

  • Donald says:

    please tell me you have seen Bubba Ho-Tep!!!

    I’ve seen 7, Highly recommend Primer

  • BigGator5 says:

    Shockingly enough, I’ve only seen two of these movies.

  • Spegen says:

    Seen a few, a couple more seemed worth a rent. Most did not appeal to me.

  • HeartbreakRidge says:

    Layer Cake is pretty damn good

    I’ve seen most of “Ghost Dog”, and that’s it. Need to watch it again, come to think…

  • JeffV says:

    I agree with Donald, I don’t want to oversell it, but Bubba Ho-Tep should be a must see. Ghost Dog is very good. I’m not sure Iron Giant should be on the list, since I was under the impression everyone had seen it. Idiocracy is odd in that is not so much a good film, but still must be seen by everyone.

      Donald: of course I’ve seen Bubba Ho-Tep. Ghost Dog, too. JeffV: Iron Giant is only ubiquitous among male geeks. It’s also perfect for destruction-testing a person’s claim that he doesn’t cry during movies.

    I’m surprised to learn that “Fly Away Home” is a movie people haven’t seen. It is a great example of the family movie done right. I remember watching it with my kids and liking it alot.

  • Stu-22 says:

    Bubba Ho-Tep is a must-see classic. Bruce Campbell as fat old Elvis teaming up with black JFK to battle a mummy in a nursing home? ‘Nuff said.

    And 24-Hour Party People is another on that list that I’d give thumbs-up to. Yeah, about a 1980s-90s UK record label (New Order, Joy Division, that lot), but loopy, goofy and off-kilter enough to be charming and amusing, even if you don’t remember or care much about the music.

    Eeesh, I’ve seen a lot of these. Which means I’m a goob who needs to get out more, I think–or just a well-rounded former film student. And ‘Happy, Texas’ should be on this list.
