Layer Cake is an excellent movie as well.


That would be Nick CAVE, rather than Nick Drake. Although the vibe is kind of Nick Drakey too though, w/ all the staring at the sunsets bits.

Hahaha, that's who I meant, I just wasn't thinking. I love both, but they are two totally different people.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

"The Thin Man" movies are definite classics

"Dr. Strangelove"

"Once Upon a Time in the West" - Bronson at his best, and Henry Fonda as the villian


Not exatly way under the radar but still some good films not everyone has seen

According to imdb, Rounders opened on 2,176 screens and grossed about $8.5 million on its opening weekend and well over $100 million in total.

Poolhall Junkies opened on 179 screens and grossed $1.9 million during its entire 4 week run in theaters.


Well now they got some pretty big cult followings, and a lot of people have seen both. Same with Snatch and Lock, Stock. Just saw those 2 again recently, and thought Snatch was actually better, they're pretty much the same movies but Brad Pitt/Jason Statham as the main actors clinches it for me, rather than the other guys in Lock, Stock.

Definitely a classic. Made me remember The Magnificent Seven and The Dirty Dozen. All three are worth watching.

These two movies seem to have more of a internet following than real life following so...


The Boondock Saints- Fight scenes are pretty good. Dialogue is witty and funny at times. It's worth a watch.


Donnie Darko- Black Comedy/Satire. Some people blow this movie way out of proportion. The truth is, it's a good movie, just not a great/excellent movie.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.
