    Maybe more of a thursday/friday thread but wth...

    What film do you recommend - ones that are not renown, perhaps international but ones that you have felt deserve greater acclamation...

    For me it's 'the wailing', 'svaha', and 'pans labyrinth'. All international films but wonderful if you're a fan of fantasy/suspense/mild horror.

    Any recommendations?

    Geena Davis is so good in that one. 10 from me on IMDb btw, from back in the day. :)

    I'd add "Jeepers Creepers". Still gets me! Classic horror. Has a huge fan-base, at least.

    Samuel L Jackson is pretty good as well. "I'm always frank and earnest with women. Uh, in New York I'm Frank, and Chicago I'm Ernest.".

    Geena's best role IMO.

    Dark City.

    Classic Alex Proyas's film, the guy who made 'The Crow'.

    Very underrated movie. The Matrix reused many of the same sets/stages at the same production studio a year later.
    Arguably a far superior movie to The Matrix, and yet, almost nobody remembers it, because it didn't have Keanu Reeves in it.

    I think "It" was super underrated, to be honest. "District 9" too.
    Also, King Kong which is one of my favorite movies was extremely underrated.

    Every IM’er has to watch Middle Men (2009).
    It’s a movie about the first porn site that charged money for porn.

    That's one of my all-time favorites!

    Also adding to the list, I'd say:
    - Cube
    - Her
    - Candyman
    - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II

    We have same taste. Long Kiss Goodnight is really underrated.
    I just love Jeepers Creepers, watched 3 parts of it just 1 month ago. 3rd film is semi-shit though.

    Nightcrawler is the best movie about business/entrepreneurship in the last decade, in my opinion.
