Just saw Johnny Suede (how's I miss that one?).
Name some little known Indy films that ended up being really good!

way better than I thought it'd be      Mon Feb 18, 2008 11:55 pm Reply with quote

I just saw He Was A Quiet Man with Christian Slater, not sure if this was direct to DVD or what, but it was pretty damn good for a movie that I hadnt heard a lick about. It makes me wonder how much quality stuff gets brushed under the rug into days mainstream only market.

Independent Films      Tue Feb 19, 2008 12:41 pm Reply with quote

The problem with a lot of independent films is that their subject matter does not appeal to large audiences. Often, the plot is something that's of social importance like racism, hatred of homosexuals, or some other societal evil. Unfortunately, the big box office hits are mostly the same old, same old with fantastic special effects, car crashes, teenage love affairs, or blood and gore.

But once in a while, there is an independent film that achieves both quality film-making (outstanding script, acting, costuming, etc.) and also is quite entertaining. Those are the jewels that sometimes still don't, unfortunately, get mass released.

Very True, its almost like the mainstream are the completley brainwashed individuals who loose their mind when they find out the Whopper has been discontinued.

The Grand is by far the best independent movie to hit the screen this year and right behind that I'd have to put my eggs on Sex and Death 101. Honestly I knew the Grand was gonna be classic from the moment I caught wind of it, but Sex and Death was the real shocker, such a perfect date movie. My wife loves this flick, and all I do is throw a few impression of the lead dude(forget his name) at her and its off to the races. At anyrate, check theese for sure...lol!

These may not be indy films but i just saw that new Highschool Reunion edition of Heathers which never disappoints. I saw the Cottage which I am absolutely obsesses with. Also a movie which I think is gonna be one of those cult classics that people wont recognize til its 5 yrs old, its called Just Add Water. If you havenít seen this one see it...itís funny. Also saw a completely original concept for the first time in like forever, The Tatooist everybit as good as it is original.
