Title: Really Good Movies Almost No One Has Ever Heard Of
Post by Rat Man on Sep 22nd, 2022 at 3:49pm
     Here's a 1983 movie with Christopher Walken that I'll bet most of you never heard of.  Brainstorm.  It's about a scientist who discovers a way to record human experiences.  Sight, sound, taste, smell, touch, the works. Any experience.  I won't give more than that away but if you like SciFi movies this is one you should catch.  I can't believe it wasn't more popular than it was.

   I don't know what else to say.  Watch it.
   Do you know of any other really good movies that never got noticed?

Rat Man..you are really tempting me to hijack your thread with some horrible movies. (that I enjoy for how bad they are).

There was a film with Harrison Ford that I thought was well done, but I've never heard it mentioned before, ans it certainly isn't one of his better known films, "The Mosquito Coast". He plays a scientist that becomes obsessed with using his invention to introduce the novelty of ice to tribes in the wild that have little contact with modern man. It's fun to watch him slowly lose it throughout the movie.

A swiss tragicomedy from 2006: late bloomers (german: die herbstzeitlosen). It's about four grannies, who decide to open a lingerie boutique in a small rural village. A really funny movie, but still containing its fair share of tragedy and food for thought.

   Threads get hijacked on a regular basis here.  I wouldn't take it personally.

I love horror movies and one that not many seem to know about is The Shrine. It's well worth a watch. It has sort of a twist ending that was very satisfying from a horror point of view.

I also enjoyed Occulus for a similar reason. You never quite seem to know if what you are seeing is really what is happening.

    Saving Silverman is a REALLY funny movie with a great cast.  It should have been a cult classic.  Instead it remains obscure.  If you want to LYAO watch it.

Saving Silverman is one of my and my high-school friends favorites. It's great.
