Pleasantville (Cool light but thought-provoking movie, very clever.)

The Red Violin (Very well done 'artsy' film with Samuel L. Jackson. Really draws you in.)

The Right Stuff (It makes you want to be an astronaut.)

Yellowbeard (One of the weirdest, goofiest movies I've ever seen. Absolutely hilarious.)

The In-Laws (The original, not the new one.) (One of the weirdest, goofiest movies I've ever seen. Absolutely hilarious.)

Those are some less common movies that will keep you busy for a while.

Nzoner's suggestion is a good one. I also really enjoyed The Red Violin which Rainman listed.

A few others:

Box of Moonlight - Odd black comedy with Sam Rockwell.
Croupier
Long Good Friday - great British gangster flick.

Like Kung Fu?

I just watched a great movie called Warriors of Heaven and Earth.

Good plot, interesting characters, and not too much cheesy over the top Kung Fu.

Not Crouching Tiger quality, but pretty good. More on the level of Iron Monkey, without the unrealistic-Fu.

Galaxy Quest rocked, Matrix didn't understand and Shawshank too depressing.

I'm more of an 80's fan when it comes to movies.

Immediate Family, Goonies, Teen Witch, the Shrunk the Kids series, Lost Boys, Fright Night, Polterguiest, Silver Bullet, Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Ghost Busters, Flash Dance.

Stuff like that. :)

WTF?!


No kidding! That movie was roundly panned by the critics for it's contrived plot devices, extraneous and poorly managed secondary characters and overwrought sense of melencholy.


Caught from Behind #3 is a much better example of the genre. The motivation of the protaganist is more believible for a post industrial audience. The use of flashback sequences adds to the overall development of the romantic relationship, not merely an end unto itself. The final resolution of the protaganist's internal conflict is resolved in a way innopposite to what one would normally expect.

Play Misty for Me

Nice,I first saw that at an Eastwood double bill at the drive-in,the 2nd feature was The Beguiled,another one that should be added to the list.

In no particular order:

Shawshank Redemption

LOTR Trilogy
Godfather
Raiders of the Lost Ark

Play Misty for Me is just a creepy movie.

The Beguiled is a great movie also. I was just trying to get a Clint movie that wasn't "The Man with No Name" or "Dirty Harry".

Other good Clint Movies:

The Eiger Sanction
Where Eagles Dare
Coogan's Bluff

I agree,both are favorite Eastwood movies of mine,not quite in the horror genre but creepy enough to make one a little uncomfortable.

I would agree. It had a very climactic ending, too.

If it isn't Evil Dead or Star Wars, it's not even worth my time.

There is no list, just a small pool of greatness at the top.
