1. Omfg. I loved this movie growing up. I was the right age when it came out and its just a fun, hilarious adventure with a great cast of characters. This and Drop Dead Fred are movies that I still really love as an adult.

  2. Murder by Death. Very funny satire. A lot like the movie "Clue" but came out earlier. Like a LOT earlier. Great cast with David Niven, Elsa Lancaster, Truman Capote, Peter Falk, Peter Sellers, Maggie Smith.

  3. Ladyhawke with Rutger Hauer, Michelle Pfifer, and Matthew Broderick. Really good action/romance movie

  4. Dude, I was at work, and I asked my coworkers if they had seen or heard of it, because I had watched it over the weekend and was blown away.

  5. "The kid gets it all. Just plant us in the damn garden..with the stupid lion" will always be my favorite end quote to a movie. It perfectly encapsulated the whole thing. That is a favorite movie with a perfect cast.

  6. I love the first three quarters of that movie. Along with Heathers and True Romance, it cements Christian Slater as icon in my mind.

  7. “Well that was borderline treasonous, and a disgrace to our nation and its proud and storied history. My father didn't kick the Nazis'... and the puck drops!”

  8. I have an affinity for intense scenes where two people are talking to each other, often while seated across from each other.

  9. Safety Not Guaranteed. Tabloid team set out to punk a guy who posted a personal ad seeking a time travel partner. My introduction to Aubrey Plaza.

  10. I hate being old. 80% of the movies listed here were very popular in their time but are now considered "lesser-known".

  11. My uncle worked in the animation studio that did this movie. I felt really bad when coco came out and blew up compared to this movie.

  12. Dude I loved that movie! I wish more people knew about it. It’s like an earlier Coco except more of a fairytale theme. The details are kind of fuzzy since I last watched a while ago,

  13. “I’m like the terminator. You’re like Sarah Connor but before she could do chin ups.” I die of laughter every time I hear that line.

  14. I think in NZ/AUS it’s got a pretty decent rep but everyone should absolutely watch this. “Fawkner is cauc.. cauc Asian. We’ll they’ve got that wrong cos you’re obviously white”

  15. For sure. If you liked Jojo Rabbit go see it. Another Taika Waititi film. Funny and fairly lighthearted. Sam Neil and the kid from Deadpool 2 whose name escapes me.

  16. It doesn’t suffer from the sequels - no one remembers them. Tremors is probably the greatest B-movie ever made.

  17. Kingdom of Heaven Director's Cut. It's a fantastic Ridley Scott period piece. The studios made him butcher it for theatrical release and it's just too short with too much character backstory and motivation cut out. So reviews were harsh and it flopped in the box office. But the Directors cut is every bit as good as Gladiator. Great performances from Eva Green, Orlando Bloom, Jeremy Irons, list could go on. An excellent role from Edward Norton as well tho you never see his face.

  18. The directors cut is a masterpiece compared to the theatrical. It’s almost a different movie. It’s the only one i recommend to people. If you have Seen the theatrical version, do yourself a favor and search out this version you won’t be disappointed

  19. Time bandits. Ultra low budget Terry Gilliam film with Sean Connery, John Cleese and Ian Holm among others.

  20. This is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's fun, it's heart warming, it's sad, it's funny and charming. If you haven't seen it, watch it now!

  21. If I had a nickel for every time Rachel McAdam's was in a movie involving a literal time traveler, Id have 5 nickels.

  22. “Are you kidding me?! A man in a really nice camper wants to put our… song on the radio! Gimme a pen, I’m signing, you’re signing, we’re all signing”

  23. Miller’s Crossing. Peak Coen brothers gangster flick with Gabriel Byrne, Marcia Gay Harden and John Turturro. Outstanding film.

  24. Drop Dead Gorgeous. Absolutely stacked cast, witty dialogue, the perfect dark comedy that happens to take place in my home state!

  25. Loved "The Nice Guys" Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling as 70's?ish PI's and is an insanely good comedy. I usually watch that and "War on Everyone" as kinda like a double feature. That's a similarly very underrated movie Alex Skarsgard and Michael Pena as very dirty cops, and while not placed in the same time period as the movie above the cars, the general aesthetic, costumes, and vibe do pair really well.

  26. This is seriously a good movie. I saw this movie as a kid and still think about it 20+ years later.

  27. True Romance is my favorite movie and i don't think it gets enough credit. It's got an amazing cast of stars before-they-were-anybody. The script is well written. It's beautifully shot.

  28. One of my all time favorites and one I suggest to anyone looking for an interesting film. Everyone plays their role flawlessly. Lots of cameos. It’s perfect.

  29. Oh hell yeah! And it has what may be the best scene in a movie, ever! Yup, in the caravan, Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken.. Perfection!

  30. I heard good things about this when it came out and I resisted watching it because it didn't really seem like my cup of tea. I eventually relented (can't remember why) and I was sooo impressed with it. Daniel Craig and Channing Tatum were so good in it. And I'd just like to say that Channing Tatum doesn't get enough credit on how good of an actor he actually is.

  31. Waiting, 2005. It's a comedy about a restaurant called shenanigans, like an apple bees. It's an exaggeration of what it's like working in a restaurant, but as a food service worker myself it's not too far off. Very crude humor, highly recommend.

  32. Mystery Team. One of the funniest movies I've ever seen, with a lot of people who are now household names - Donald Glover, Aubrey Plaza, Bobby Moynihan, Ellie Kemper, Jon Daly.

  33. Cop Land with Sylvester Stallone and Harvey Keitel and Method Man and various other big names including Robert De Niro and Robert Patrick.

  34. Whenever someone asks me for a movie recommendation I try to get them to watch In Bruges, but I do such a bad job describing it because I can’t even figure out what genre it is. Even describing it as a comedic action drama feels inadequate. It’s so so good.

  35. It's brilliant. Have you seen Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang? If you like In Bruges, you'll probably like it. Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer. Funny as hell.

  36. It was so different than what was marketed in a good way - I was so pleasantly surprised and so blown away by it. Still one of my favorite movies.

  37. Mystery Men. Watched it the other week, still holds up. Amazing cast, good jokes, a seemingly original take on the super-hero genre, and free if you've got prime.

  38. People always group All-star by Smash mouth with Shrek in their heads because it got re used for that movie. The mystery men are literally in the music video! All star is representative of mystery men, not Shrek.

  39. I first watched it when I was younger because my dad told me that Kel Mitchell was in it. I can turn invisible but only when nobody is looking. One of my favourite films.

  40. The Island (2006) - A Michael Bay film not reliant on explosions, exploring ethics in medicine, starring Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson with a supporting cast of Sean Bean, Djimon Hounsou and Steve Buscemi.

  41. Out Of Sight. The same team behind the remake of Ocean's Eleven, and with a very similar vibe. What makes it, is the on-screen chemistry between George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez. Also the trivia tidbit that Michael Keaton plays Ray Nicolette, the same charachter he played in Jackie Brown; both that and Out Of Sight are based on Elmore Leonard novels. Highly recommended.

  42. Wind River. Power, atmospheric and great acting by Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner. Cinematography gorgeous too.
