10 Movies you may have missed Empty 10 Movies you may have missed

Often times throughout the years smaller movies fall through the cracks and are overshadowed by the marketing blitzes of blockbusters, in this top ten we are going to fill in those cracks with suggestions for movies that if you haven’t seen you should. So if you are reading this, stop by your local blockbuster or update you Netflix queue and check out these diamonds in the rough.


#10:
Cannibal Holocaust
Ahh, the late 70's an age of exploration for the film industry. Cannibal Holocaust follows an anthropologist as he seeks out group of documentarians into the jungle. The results are at times very disturbing and viewer discretion is highly advised. But, I'm guessing that that appeals to a large number of you.


#9:
Zombie Strippers
If you have a yearning for the horror B movies of the 80's you do not want to miss this one. With some incredibly awful yet hilarious lines such as "I like knives" and "Smoking is so f*cking cool." This movie runs a perfect balance of recognizing itself for what it is and what it is not.


#8:
Teeth
An Entertaining if not terrifying story about a case of Vagina Dentata, that’s right think about that one for a little bit.



#7:
The Machinist
Despite Christian Bale acting like a complete tool one thing that has to be handed to him is his commitment to a role. For his role in The Machinist Bale dropped his weight to below 100 pounds and looked like he was on his death bed. The machinist follows a man who has not slept in a year and as a result begins to think he has lost the remains of his own sanity.


#6:
City of Ember
This great little movie actually played out more like a traditional role playing game in plot. Set in a post apocalyptic world where the population lives underground and subsists from a massive electrical generator that is ages old and about to run out of power. The characters set off to solve the mystery of a mysterious box and to find out if the true outside world is really as bad as generations have been told.


#5:
Reign over me
This is probably one of my top 20 movies of all time, its a widely ignored film that had very solid acting performances both from Don Cheadle and Adam Sandler. This movie also proved that Sandler didn't have to belt out zany one liners to entertain. Centered on a 9/11 widow who is stuck in an indefinite rut and psychosis and the old college friend who both end up learning about themselves in the process of letting go.


#4:
The Man from Earth
Following a Scholar's retiring party his colleagues begin to question his perpetual youth and to find that he claims to be an immortal that has walked to earth for 14,000 years. As an indie flick expect a no frills affair with a strictly dialogue driven film.


#3:
Sunshine
Danny Boyle proves with this film that he is capable of handling a mish mash of genres, combining sci-fi with elements of horror and a healthy dose of social commentary. Sunshine follows a crew of scientists on their quest to restart a dying sun with a bomb the size of Manhattan strapped to the front of their ship. Sounds awesome, right? It is.


#2:
The Fountain
This had to be one of the most mentally rewarding film experiences I've ever had. In the same vein as 'Pi' With a story that seems tangled and at first glance makes no sense at all, my recommendation is to watch it with a friend and then discuss what you think the story is. Forget 'The Wrestler' and even forget 'Requiem for a Dream' Darren Aronofsky's best film to date.


#1:
Oldboy
An absolutely fantastic gritty dare I say epic? Oldboy covers an alcoholic nobody who is for unknown reasons is imprisoned for 15 years and upon once again mysterious release sets about to find out who and why. This movie has one of THE best fight scenes ever laid to celluloid see the video below. On top of great fight scenes a mystery to be solved it also has a great twist at its gruesome conclusion. This twist blows the pants off of Bruce Willis being dead.

I've wanted to see The Machinist, but City of Ember didn't look all that good. Might read the book.

I saw City of Ember, and it's really different from the book.
Still good though.

I heard some guys talking about it in my Statistics class.
Still not all that disturbing.

Apparently it's funny, but I've never really been into that type of thing.

I think once you've seen genital mutilation videos on meta cafe... a movie like that just isn't effective. Whatever

There was a movie called 'Hard Candy' with Ellen Page which had a scene in it that literally made me sweat. It was awful.

AS for the fountain... aside from the music, I thought it was absolute artistic nonsense. Maybe I just didn't 'get' it? I do like Requiem.

Stuff like that isn't really all that disturbing to me. At least when I hear about it. I've never watched it.

It's strange, seeing it in films and whatnot and there's nothing. But reading some recent articles on cracked that include crotch-withering diseases and I couldn't walk afterwards. Maybe because I know they're real or something.

Yeah... they're real alright, and pretty damn disturbing at that. I mean... if seeing some guy drive a nail through one of his testicles doesn't desensitize you to graphic violence, I don't know what does. pale

I loved Sunshine.

Would have been better if they left out the whole other captain thing and more focused on the whole "omg mission rawr" stuff since it felt really like "woooooow"
