Good list. Some I haven't seen. Shivers and Stroszek are a couple of my favorites. Shivers specifically is one of a handful of truly great horror movies ever made.

Just off the top of my head, I'd add these two:

ecx.images-amazon.com

I don't think this movie was released on VHS or DVD until 2005 or so, and even after that it fell in and out of print. Incredibly depressing and amazing, with an ending that people who need movies to "end" with everything wrapped up in a bow will hate.

The fact that this movie is called a "comedy" on its promotional posters is completely baffling to me. I think it's one of the most depressing movies I've ever seen about addiction of any kind, gambling or otherwise.

ecx.images-amazon.com

Another great movie it seems like no one's ever seen. My favorite boxing movie ever.
 
2013-06-05 02:12:55 PM
Seen the documentary on swingers.  Even think I saw it in the theater.

"Parents" is obscure?

The "Up" series is obscure?  Huh?  Its one of the most aclaimed projects in film history.

I've seen all of them but numbers 4, 5 and, thank Satan, 9.

You want obscure? Try De Illusionist. It has some of the funniest scenes I've ever seen, if you don't mind seeing them in a nearly silent Dutch surrealist film.

Saw it.  Good premise and looks good, but I think it needed one more draft.

Also, the gun kata is retarded.  Going up against a Grammaton Cleric?  Lay down and aim for his legs.  They don't move, and you won't get hit.  I wasn't impressed with the pistol slap fight at the end, but that's just me.

Let's see here:

Hearts and Minds - saw that while in college just after it came out. Anyone who didn't know we were "sold a bill of goods" about Vietnam at the time wasn't paying attention.

Stroszek - saw that at the local art house and not long afterward saw "Aguirre" and then "Fitzcarraldo" as part of the same series. Can't say as I remember all that much about them, except the woman in Aguirre was pretty hot.

Myra Breckinridge - actually thought that was pretty funny, didn't know I was supposed to take it seriously.

I must have watched "Parents" a couple of dozen times back when they played in on cable. I think it's some of Randy Quaid's best work.

I stumbled across a good movie on Netflix a couple of months ago called "Safety Not Guaranteed". It's was a surprisingly good film. I highly recommend it.

Yeah, that's a particularly good docu, but I was predisposed to dislike McNamara since I had grown up watching him dissemble on the news every night.

Ages (early 80s) ago when I was living in rural NC after college, there was a local TV station that somehow had a stack of movies from Australia. They used to put them on after midnight (about the time I got home from work) as time-fillers and I wish I knew the names of half of them. Some of them were pretty good, and it's where I learned such words as "wanker." One I do remember:

Forbidden Zone was a crazy film to watch. Imagine an old black and white Looney Tunes or Disney cartoon from the 1930s or 40s where things weren't so politically correct. Then make it darker, throw in Danny Elfman as Satan and providing the soundtrack, Hervé Villechaize as a king, and a topless princess prancing around.

Your blog sucks is loaded with camp, NTTAWWT.  Feh.

I'll throw out a few titles and bend over:

The Unheard Music (a film about music you may not have heard of should be on a list of films you may not have heard of. Oh, the irony!)
Malcolm (aussie film about an aspie talked into a heist, awesome soundtrack-Penguin Café Orchestra)
The Loved One (cult film you should have heard of, but may not have, so I'd recommend a little catch up, um kay?)
I am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang (classic film, on the National Film Registry that I find many have not heard of.  Mentioning it here as a public service announcement.  Last shot/line one of most famous in cinema.)
Mud (in theaters right now and deserves mention)

What about the full cut of Eric Von Strohheim's "Greed" ? Now that's a movie you'll never see.

Thought the list was going to be about lost movies though I do have to say, as a schlubby redheaded dude if I went the Myra B route and ended up as Racquel Welch, I'd consider that a trade up.

Stroczek is one of Herzog's best and weirdest. Parents is also highly weird and enjoyable. And if you have no desire to see any of the #-up series, I don't even want to know you.
 
2013-06-05 04:18:59 PM
My list:

1) Shooter - a Mark Wahlberg flick that should've been more well-known but didn't catch on.
2) Tears of the Sun - should've been a more popular movie but didn't catch the right wave either.  Bruce Willis in Africa, enough said.
3) Fog of War - someone else recommended it, definitely informative and eye-opening.
4) Equilibrium - good concept, decently polished, worth a Netflix viewing, but not a first-run theatre viewing.

Maybe Baby is truly dreadful. One of perhaps half a dozen films I had to turn off.

Check out Son of Rambow. I probably loved it because the kid was maybe 2 or 3 years younger than me, living in provincial England, and the period detail is spot on, but it's rare that films about kids get it so right.

I saw that on the big screen at a revival. I agree it's beautiful...one of the very few studio features shot under only natural light, I believe.

I_Love_Cheesecake: Apparently, Stroszek is what Joy Division's Ian Curtis saw the night he committed suicide. I don't blame him.

This is an incredible film:

Apparently the dancing chicken scene is where he killed himself.

Bathia_Mapes: wiseolddude: Myra Breckinridge  Saw that one, but don't really remember anything about it.

I remember it being a pretty f*cking awful movie, but then again, I've never been a Gore Vidal fan either.


I've seen Myra and it's awful, but since it's of the self-absorbed variety it's even worse the usual dreck.

I haven't seen any of those, so I guess they're technically correct.


Rapmaster2000: I've never seen The Godfather, Blade Runner, or any of the Spidermans.  People seem to love those.


Once worked with a girl who had never seen a Star Trek, Star Wars, James Bond or Indiana Jones movie. Seems to me it would be a lot of work to actually avoid seeing those movies.

Whatthefark: I must have watched "Parents" a couple of dozen times back when they played in on cable. I think it's some of Randy Quaid's best work.

I stumbled across a good movie on Netflix a couple of months ago called "Safety Not Guaranteed". It's was a surprisingly good film. I highly recommend it.


The Duplass brothers do good work. Jeff Who Lives at Home was great as well.

I have a friend who has never seen Star Wars and refuses to do so now since she's seen Spaceballs and figures that it's pretty much the same thing.

What's really obscure are the other "Up" series. There are several that are around the 21-28 stage now.

There's one in Japan, one in the US, one in South Africa, one that started in the USSR and straddled the breakup. I saw the "age 14 in the USSR" show on TV (it was pretty good), and one of the Japanese series is on Amazon, but on the whole, they're almost impossible to find.

I'll throw another one into the mix, "Employee of the Month". Not the Jessica Simpson movie, this one stars Matt Dillon and Christina Applegate. The ending is great, but Jenna Fischer's callgirl scene is hilarious. Hearing little Pam Beasly say nasty things is just too much.

The "Up" series is obscure?  Huh?  Its one of the most aclaimed projects in film history.


Zactly.
Also, I've seen Forbidden Zone multiple times and it's not good.  On any level.  Unless you're 15 years old.

OH MY GOD!  PARENTS!  I so remember that movie!

csb:

We used to get MESSED UP in high school and hang out at a buddy's house (his dad had a huge movie collection and a liquor cabinet...).  Parents disturbed the hell out of us when I mentioned something we had missed:  His dad was a coroner at the time and they had a large floor freezer with unmarked meats wrapped in white butcher paper!  After that, we (seriously) refused to eat anything out of that freezer unless we saw what store it came from.

This film was nearly destroyed, before the producer (I think) found the last copy. It's one of two movies that have played Canne twice.

Off that list, I saw:

Shivers has the benefit of having Lynn Lowry in it and being done by Cronenberg before he got all serious on us. All three are highly recommended, but Shivers more than the others.

I've seen Parents, and not only have I seen Forbidden Zone more times than I can count, I've seen it on the big screen... twice! It's a weird movie classic.

An obscure film I would recommend would be American Pop. I think More American Graffiti has some good qualities as well.

"The Duellists" is a darn good movie. I came across it in some list of "Top xxx most realistic sword fighting movies".

It's always seems hard to define "little known movies", since, technically, you could list a bunch of wacky foreign films, obscure black and white movies, or one-off indies.

A couple of others that I *think* aren't really well-viewed that I like, but could be somewhat forgotten based on box-office alone:

Runaway Train (1985)
Legend of 1900 (1998)
Fandango (1985) ***this is one is iffy on the 'unknown' factor, but it's really well shot and editted, and has some interesting performances from some well-known actors before they became well-known, and a ridiculous parachuting sequence that is way too long that doesn't feel like the rest of the movie.

Is that like Garth Brooks and his Chris Gaines project? He did the soundtrack, but never made the movie.
I assume that's the same for this Highlander 2 soundtrack, since they never made a sequel to Highlander.


Actually he did.  Had a friend who worked on it.  Premise was Gaines is killed and clues to who the murderer is are in the cd track notes.

It's never seen the light of day.  Not even a workprint or a vhs copy.  That's pretty impressive.

Should have been the case with Dwight Yokum's South of Heaven, West of Hell.

Only movie I can think of which has never leaked to any degree is Jerry Lewis' The Day the Clown Died.  I know Harry Sherer said he saw a work print at someone's house in LA in the 70s, but that's the last screening I've heard of.

I'm expecting Jerry's estate will end up releasing it after he dies.

I sound fat: Seems like "The Big Lebowski" should be on a list of best movies I havent seen.  I mean, judging from the reaction i get when I admit that in public.


Never watch it.  Any joy you might have from finally watching it will dull in comparison to the jollies you'll get from people exalting it's virtues to you.

This goes with any cult film you've never seen.  It can never live up to the hype of someone who saw it at the perfect time and place.

Can anyone tell me the name of a movie (I think it was never released in US so it was a Russian word) about this guy from Russia who gets a small device from his friend and jumps to a desert alien world where they put a translator device up his nose and they fly around in a smallish ship?  They need a specific part to jump back to the Russian's dimension or whatever so they go looking in an underground complex like a mine or something?

Ahh I found it.. Apparently not that obscure Kin-Dza-Dza: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091341/

Anyway, that would be my nomination.

Myra Breckinridge: Read the book by Gore Vidal. Haven't seen the movie. On my movie bucket list.

Parents: Saw it when it came out. It's sort of a cult horror comedy based on vegetaria propaganda equating eating meat to cannibalism.

Forbidden Zone:  I have the movie but I haven't watched the MST3K version yet. There's a parody of it in the "Boring" episode of The Young Ones. That's how hip it is. And one of the actors is Herve Villachaisse, the dwarf from "Fantasy Island". Could it be more cult?

As for the Up series, I did see one episode at last, many years ago.

So of the Movies I Have Never Seen list, I average about one third. About par for the course for lists of things I haven't seen, but low for lists of things I don't know. I know a Hell of a lot more than reporters, humourists, and op-ed writers think I know.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!

You don't want to know what I know. (A lot of people complain when I tell them.)

One item you can add to most people's list of movies they have not seen:

PRACTICALLY EVERYTHING THAT JOHN WATERS EVER MADE.

I have watched quite a few of his movies, including the more commercial, less low-budget and shock value movies such as Pecker and that musical they made into a musical, Hairspray. I've seen some of the very early stuff which was really underground, and have intentionally avoided a lot of the real gross-out stuff.

All in all I like John Waters. He's smart, funny, carries his queenliness lightly and does one of the best Simpsons commentaries of all. Simpsons commentaries are the best. They are as entertaining, informative and fun as the shows and sometimes more so. The Simpsons people really understand how to do commentaries. Some people have made good movies or TV shows without a clue what a commentary is or could be.

The guys from South Park do decent commentaries but they are only five minutes long. This is rare if not unique. They just don't have a lot they want to rehash. Seeing as some of their shows are still being animated during the broadcast (like that Space Ghost Coast to Coast "live" episode) they may simply have enough on their hands without doing a making of video.

I have mixed feelings about that movie. On the one hand, the script stinks out loud, and the acting isn't much better.

On the other hand, the visuals are stunning. Not in the "ZOMG CGI" way that's popular these days but in terms of the beauty of the cinematography, landscapes, choice of color palette, lighting, etc. I saw it in the theatre and enjoyed the experience, but I'd never in a million years put it on a list of all-time best movies.

Probably more like "Top ten movies you haven't seen (because they really suck)".

Hey, it's some jackoff's "Top Ten" list, so it's probably shiat like every other "Top Ten" list.

Anyway, if your stupid blog won't display anything at all without javascript, then I am guessing having javascript turned off saved me from wasting my time.
