Finder's Fee-moral flick involving four buddies, a poker game, and lottery tickets.

Sukiyaki Western Django-Stylized Japanese "Western" loosely based on the Heike/Genji fued in pre-fuedal Japan, directed by Takeshi Miike

Poolhall Junkies-partially funded by, starring, and directed by Mars Callahan. Some good cameos, good "hustle" moments.

The Sunset Limited-philisophical flick about two guys arguing the existance of God, based on a book by Cormac McCarthy.

Suicide Kings-Strong cast, mob/ransom plot

1. Grandmas Boy - this is one of the funiiest movies ever. If you like video games and pot humor and bathroom humor, this is for you!

2. I love you Phillip Morris - This is the Gay comedy(literally) with Jim Carrey and Ewan Mcgregor, allegedly based on a true story. I laughed my butt off many times during this flick

3. Booty Call, this is the movie from the early 90's with Jamie Foxx, this movie is hilarious and I have probably watched it too many times LOL

4. The Spirit, I actually found this movie to be incredibly entertaining and the visuals rock.

5.All about the Benjamins - this movie has Mike Epps at the pinnacle of hir career, Ice Cube and him play off each other so well in this movie, and Eva Mendes is in it too

4.

Thanks. I caught 5 minutes of it at a comic book store a long time ago. I bought it 20 minutes later. I am a huge fan of it.

I guess it was commercially successful in Europe. They didnt want to spend more money promoting it in America so they just put it out without promotion.

The Darjeeling Limited - Wes Andersons best work, in my opinion, and Owen Wilsons best performance.

Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang - Robert Downey, Jr. at his best, and Val Kilmers best work in the last decade.

Harsh Times - really loved Christian Bale in this role...and overall a very effective movie from start to finish that I find myself watching quite often.

The Fall - Tarsem put together a visually stunning film here, but anyone familiar with his work knew that would be the case. It was the performance of Catinca Untaru that was so innocent, genuine and brilliant rolled into the simple yet elegant story that made this film work for me.

Bronson - Tom Hardy is amazing in this film. This performance told me he would be the next great actor, and he seems to be making good on that so far. Brilliant, brutal, funny and dark all at the same time.

Excellent list. I love all 5 of those movies.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 7:15:12 AM PST
Sukiyaki Western Django woul dhave been on my list had you not already mentioned it.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 7:17:43 AM PST

The Hudsucker Proxy - Whenever I bring up this movie it seems like nobody has seen it. Come on people, it's freakin Coen brothers and it's amazing.

Stardust - This movie gives me the same kind of feelings as The Princess Bride and that's about as high as praise can get for this fantasy romantic comedy.

Cecil B. Demented - A film geeks stupid fun movie and the last time I remember seeing Stephen Dorff.

Matchstick Men - Every once in a while Nic Cage knocks it out of the park, this is one of those rare times

The Salton Sea - A great little film noir-ish story of revenge.

Black Snake Moan - I'd go into why it's great but I know to get you all to see it I just have to mention Christina Ricci gets all naked.

I know it's 6, F off.

The scene about the midget race war, is worth the price of admission alone, referring to In Bruges

The Fall is an amazing movie, everyone should go see it.

Some I really like have already been mentioned

Thank You for Smoking
Poolhall Junkies

A couple of others I really like.....
Idiocracy - Directed by Mike Judge (Office Space) Shows what would happen to the world if only the dumbest people procreated....Brawndo - The Thirst Mutilator
Snatch - not sure if is not well received (everyone seems to love Pitt in it) It's a story about a stolen Diamond and a boxing promoter and the London criminal world.

The Darjeeling Limited is such a beautiful and sad movie. Love it.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 7:25:21 AM PST
Snatch I think was pretty watched. At least I don't think I know anyone who hasn't seen it in my circle of friends.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is underrated IMO.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 7:28:15 AM PST
The Salton Sea is an excellent example of method acting from the entire cast.

Time Bandits: Terry Gilliam flick with midgets in a ship travelling through time. I guess this has a cult following but I never really hear anyone mention it.

The Good, the Bad, and the Weird: Korean Western based on the Eastwood movie. One of the funnest action films I've seen.

Dear Zachary - this is literally the saddest movie I have ever seen. Its a documentary too. It needs to be seen but it is seriously depressing.

The Raid: Redemption - Holy crap. Best action evarrrr
