HOLY HELL YES

Because it's a huge cult favorite. It is very noticed and recognized and even has a very nice criterion release.

Another good one for Terry Gilliam fans is The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen

Yep I've got that three disc original DVD release with the nice slipcase. That's a movie that I'd like to upgrade to Blu Ray.

I used to work in a movie theater and we could take the posters when they were done with them or not used. I grabbed the poster for The Salton Sea since it looked awesome and throught "I need to actually see this movie if I'm to put up the poster." Glad I did.

I don't know, man. I think Equilibrium has a pretty strong following. I loved Thank You For Smoking, though. Great movie.

Its sort of becoming a cult classic, I suppose. It certainly wasnt for a couple years though.

Equilibrium is that movie all my friends loved that I just couldn't enjoy.

The Raid: Redemption is fantastic. Trope De Elite is worth a look as well.

I love the scene where they go to buy some ice from the guy with the spear-gun.

I am right there with you man. It didn't help that everyone was billing it to me as "The Matrix Killer."

Yeah I wanted to put Equilibrium with The Warriors and even Donnie Darko but all these seem to have some cult following at least.

The Matrix Killer was called The Matrix Reloaded. That killed the franchise.

Considering I really liked three of teh five on your list it appears I need to watch In Bruges and Equillibrium.

Also, need to watch Sukiyaki Western Django at some point.

I hated The Cell, basically the reason I haven't seen it.

Indeed it did!

Sukiyaki was... something else. I'm a fan of Japanese media and even I thought it was a little too Japanese for me to get into. It was just downright weird at points. Of course the weirdest parts were the bits in the middle with Tarrantino.

In Bruges has some amazing dialogue and is kinda funny. Also dark, but def worth watching.

Equilibrium has amazing shooting scenes. Also a kinda neat story about a totalitarian govt that controls peoples emotions.

That Emu Kid says:
I liked Black Snake Moan, but Christina Ricci wasn't hot naked in that movie, she was depressing naked. There's a difference.

The Fall is Tarsem's only good movie as far as I'm concerned. I haven't actually seen Mirror Mirror but I can assume.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 7:49:22 AM PST
the japanese actors/actresses speak the whole movie in english, but you can watch it in japanese with English sub. I thought it was pretty cool that they were dedicated enough with the "tale" to do the dialogue in English. Miike said he wanted it to feel more "western" than eastern, so he wanted English to be spoken. Some lines get a little lost in translation, but a quality flick still remains, imo.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 7:49:51 AM PST
True but the people who haven't seen it don't know that and it will get them to watch the movie.

Well now they know, thanks a lot you oversized bird.

Not sure how obscure these actually are, but:

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou - one my favorite movies and a fantastic soundtrack.
Ong Bak - it's popular here on the VGF but most normal folks probably wouldn't know it.
Lucky Number Slevin - this might be really well-known and I just don't realize it.
I'd like to steal Layer Cake from Foge's list...actually his whole list looks good, I still need to see In Bruges sometime.
