    What are some of the best movies of the last 10 years that are awesome, but somewhat under the radar.....my choices

    Ghostdog:Way of the Samurai-Wu-Tang meets Samurai meets Sopranos
    Narc-most intense view of drugs/cops I have ever seen...Detroit looks like the 5th level of hell even more than usual......
    Sexy Beast-great British gangster flick, Ben Kingsley is the scariest asshole you will ever see
    The Pledge-Jack Nicholson vs. a serial killer in the Nevada high country
    Meet Wally Sparks-funny as shit Rodney Dangerfield flick

    Sexy Beast was brilliant, so I agree, if you haven't seen it, go rent it now.

    Two of my favorite under-the-radar flicks that immediately come to mind are:

    Bound - The Wachowski Bros. first film. Everything about this movie is superb, the editing, camera angles, storytelling, dialog ... it's all just awesome. The lesbian sex scene with Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly is a bonus.

    Irreversible - Italian film starring Monica Bellucci, very disturbing and powerful if you can stomach the violence. Backwards storytelling is crucial to the power of the film, but is kind of off-putting now since it's been done in so many other films.

    -SLC Punk has some great lines in it.
    -Anything by Kevin Smith
    -The Game
    -Memento
    -South Park

    "Things to do in Denver when your dead" was a great one.

    Also "Brotherhood of the wolf" is a must watch in surround sound.
     
  9. Millers Crossing- Awesome Coen Brothers Gangster Flick
    City of God- It has subtitles, but still a great movie
    Beautiful Girls- Great movie that I avoided seeing for a couple years as I thought it was going to be a chick flick
    Delicatessen- Hilarious French movie involving cannibalism
     
  10. VprHis

    VprHis Get off my lawn, you hooligans!

    Cannibal, the Musical

    Goes in the 'stupid humor' category.
    Early work by the creators of South Park. Cartman's voice even puts in a cameo. Watch while your humor gland has been stimulated by the chemical of your choice (although sleep deprivation works quite well :) )

    I loved "Garden State"...Of course I have watched a lot of non-traditional romance films lately. Another good one is "Stateside", I'd watch it just for Rachael Leigh Cook though. :lol:
