The Unappreciated Movie Thread

Race The Sun
Featuring Casey Affleck, Halle Berry, and James Belushi, this 1996 film is the (heavily-fictionalized) story of a team of Hawaiian high-schoolers who build a solar car and, against all odds, race in the World Solar Challenge in Australia. Definitely not the most original plot elements, but beautiful shots of Australia and a great soundtrack make this one for the whole family (or when there's nothing else on).

Clue
An all-star cast including Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, and Christopher Lloyd heads up this wacky adaptation of the board game. Mr. Boddy has been killed, now the rest of the secretive guests, along with the mysterious butler Wadsworth, must find out who the murderer is before (s)he strikes again! Also, this movie has more one-liners than any other movie, ever.

UHF
"Weird Al" Yankovic's big screen debut comes as George Newman, a daydreamer who takes over his uncle's TV station and turns it from the edge of shutdown to the most popular in town with shows like "Raul's Wild Kingdom", "Conan the Librarian", "Wheel of Fish", and, of course, "Stanley Spadowski's Clubhouse". Filled to the brim with Weird Al's signature brand of humor and hilarious sight gags.

    The Departed

    And interpid young cop searches his soul for the answers when he meets an unresistably cute doctor. They fall in love and prove that even in the gritty city of boston, love can shine through the darkest of clouds. An all star cast leads this dramatic musical set in 1930's boston. 5 stars.

    Dead and Buried.

    Great horror movie.

    Plus it has a guy getting stabbed in the eye with a syringe.

    Mr. Banballow was so badly maimed, he turned into a hideous monster, oozing and bleeding, snarling and growling like a beast---enraged and bent on revenge. He tracked down the kids responsible for the fire and killed them one by one----with a blowtorch. That wasn't enough for Banballow. He won't leave his inn or his memories, so there he waits....in ambush....

    Personally I put Equilibrium in the catagory of unappreciated movies. Its way up on my list of favorites and sure the likes of us know and appreciate it, but the general populace doesn't even know it exists.

    I just think the Big L is an awesome movie, in classic Coen Brothers form. I'm a big fan of their dry comedic style.

    Equilibrium is seriously about as badass as they come. Plus its got hot ass Christian Bale in it kicking ass but not being bothered with name taking.
