I just finished The Island (1980) with Michael Caine on HBO this morning(thank you final paper for keeping me up all night) . I probably never would have seen this since its not on DVD and this probably would have been the only airing ever knowing HBO who can't ever air are really good movie more than once. What a badass movie I must say. I was blown away by everything in this film even the now cheesy 80s pirate radiing music. Here is the wiki I'm a little too tired to type up a summary, but I will say that the my favorite parts were his being brainwashed by the pirates and their raids on coke dealer and coast guard. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Island_(1980_film) So, it got me thinking what are some great "rare" movie can we recommend to each other. I'm not talking about the usual staple of comic movies, modern popular cult movies like Bubba Ho-Tep or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, or even the usual staple of scifi/horror films. I want to hear about those great films that aren't necessarily cult-status or even have a mass appeal, but great nonetheless people would actuallymight not know about like The Dunwich Horror or maybe even Thursday. Edit: please forgive errors as I've had no sleep.
