Everyone likes some movies that most people never heard of, so come on, out with yours!

 I really like "Quatermass and the pit", of 5 million years to earth as it was called in america. Damned intelligent, well thought out movie even if tewo of the main characters (the professor and the hardheaded military guy) are a little stereotypical. If I could trust the movie biz not to rape it over I'd want a remake.


"The Majin trilogy" Japanese horror and samurai movies, a trilogy centering around an ancient Japanese god called Majin. Almost done more like samurai and sandals style filsm rather than horror/monster, each has some good giant monster action with pretty believable filming given that the monster, Majin, is "only" about 30 feet tall and is often represented by life sized props. Decent stories and acting help make these little movies some real hidden treasures.

"Moon Zero Two: A good effort at a fairly hardish SF movie sadly marred by some idiot's decision that it had to be done up as "the first space western". Ignore some of the more ridiculous elements and it's a good SF movie.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I always liked the early Dan Akroyd comedy DOCTOR DETROIT.
And an ultra-cheap, low budget martial arts spoof called NINJA BACHELOR PARTY.

DEATH LAID AN EGG, a crazy surreal giallo starring Gina Lollobrigida and Ewa Aulin set on a commercial chicken farm (!).  Mindblowing in its weirdness.  It may never be released in the US due to rights issues.

Antonio Margheriti [Anthony M Dawson]'s crazy Vietnam flick Tiger Joe with David Warbeck and Tony King. If anyone wants a copy, it's available from www.impactvideo.co.za.

You got it, man!  I have the entire trilogy under the title The Daimajin Trilogy
and it's a beautifully remastered print of all 3 movies, complete with the music by Akira Ifukube.   Great attention to historical detail too!

Also, these were very violent films for their time..Daimajin is cold and unwavering as he carries out his actions, and that fixed stare on his face makes it even more unsettling. I get a little uneasy when I see him.  But that's the idea  Smile

I don't know whether any of my favorites are that obscure, but here are some that are probably more obscure than the others. Thus, in alphabetical order . . .

"The Bounty"
As far as I know the last of the theatrical films made about the incident of the Mutiny on the "Bounty," and probably the most historically accurate.

"Bugsy Malone"
Before there was "High School Musical," there was . . .

"Color of Money"
The sequel to "The Hustler," and the role for which Paul Newman won his Academy Award.

"In Search of the Castaways"
"A thousand thrills and Hayley Mills"

"Zulu Dawn"
The prequel to "Zulu"

Nuts In May, it's only a short film about a husband and wife that go camping but I think it's one of the best films ever made. Funny, sad, light hearted, and deep at the same time



And an ultra-cheap, low budget martial arts spoof called NINJA BACHELOR PARTY.
isn't this the film made by Bill Hicks and his friends? didn't know it was finished. there's clips of it on a Bill hicks documentary I've got (if it's the same film you're talking about)

The title rings a bell, but I'm not sure what it's about.

I do remember a "Blackboard Jungle however, about a schoolteacher in a rough, run down high school, akin to The Principal with Jim Belushi in some ways while both remain fairly separate films.

Some other little knowns:

Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things

Deranged about Ed  Gein, and one of Tom Savini's first FX jobs.

Return From The Past  A little anthology movie narrated by John Carradine, with Lon Chaney Jr. in one of the stories.

Targets Peter Bogdanovich's first film. Starring Boris Karloff.  It was on AMC a few days ago.

Daughter Of The Mind with Ray Milland in a great psychological thriller. Also gets on AMC now and then.

Roadhouse 66 with a young Judge Reinhold and Willem Dafoe as a pair of drifters in mid 60's Arizona. Lots of classic cars in this one!

\

A brilliant criminal decides to pull a heist and steal some gems from a jewelry store. Things get complicated and a lot of personal stories are told.

I'm an animal lover, donate to animal shelters and feed strays, and there was a scene in a diner where a hunchbacked man is feeding a cat. A cabbie comes in order coffee, sneers at the cat and brags about how he runs strays over whenever he can. The hunchback, without a word, comes around the counter, grabs him and physically throws him out. Loved it.

Interesting...I'll have to look for it. Sounds like a good movie.

Same with me, man, animal lover. Dances With Wolves always breaks my heart when Two Socks is just standing there with the bullets whizzing by him until he gets hit.  Always hard to watch.  I also have 2 cats too, and ones's 11 and one's 12.  I love em' to death and it'll be a hard day when they finally pass on.
