For maximum effect, don't look it up, just watch it...
Sounds like there's a series on Netflix now, so not that obscure anymore I guess...
Die Welle / The Wave
I actually don't remember much about this one, but it just came to mind from that era too, ha...
Heres a few guilty pleasure movies I like to watch at least once a year. Deep Cover is probably one of the most underrated films of all time. Its directed by Bill Duke who was the bald black guy in Predator and Commando. Great acting by both Fishburn and Golblum. The Way Way Back is a recent coming of age movie that I really liked. What's not to like about Zombie? There's an underwater scene where a Zombie attacks a girl an a friggen shark! Lots of crusty goey zombies that are disgusting...I love it!
Quoted from TheLaw:
Io think Romper Stomper is a bit overrated.
Chopper is a hilarious watch; possibly the only time Eric Bana has been interesting.
The young kid " Babs " in Romper Stomper was my next door neighbour . Eric Bana was hilarious in his first movies and on TV over here I think he got a bit more serious once he got to Hollywood .
Not that old but think it fits the somewhat obscure part, and as it is almost that time of year...
Haha, we watch it every year, along with the ref. Dennis Leary as a thief stuck holding a dysfunctional family hostage
Only seen once years ago but remember it was funny as hell ( but I could have been drunk )
HA, forgot about the REF. Actually met Dennis once just after that movie came out, we were at the airport in Ireland. We were renting a car at the next booth, shook his hand and said your a funny mother F...r . He laughed. We respected his time and did not bother him for an autograph.
Just watched joysticks ( on you tube) after seeing it on this thread . I really liked it , think a cross between Revenge of the Nerds and Caddyshack set in an arcade . Maybe not as good as those two but it's very fun and silly and the boobs don't hurt . If you liked it listen to the podcast about it , very entertaining .
fear of a black hat . nobody wants to watch it , but when you do, you laugh your ass off.
Hollywood Shuffle is GREAT! I have watched that about a million times. It is just packed with really funny stuff. Good social commentary stuffed in there too, but in completely hilarious ways.
Batty Batty Batty!
Another good one is Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, its a bit sillier but still pretty funny.
Sidney Lumet & Sean Connery were involved together in a number of movies. This is my favourite:
Speaking of Sean Connery, it doesn’t appear that Zardoz has been mentioned. Not sure if it’s obscure enough ( my wife had never heard of it) , but it’s awesome!
As flashbak.com says: “John Boorman’s Zardoz is a genuinely quirky movie, a trip into a future that seems ruled by perpetually stoned set decorators.” It’s set in a post-apocalyptic Ireland...Connery wasn’t much in demand at the time. So James Bond did away with the fussy cocktails, priapic cars and other adolescent seduction techniques honed in sticky carpeted casinos, strapped on a red leather posing pouch buckled to matching bandoliers with ample room for a few dozen vials of amyl nitrate and found like-minded people in an out-of-town S&M fetish club under the auspices of a perverted flying god-rock.
How about obscure and timeless cinematic themes: unrequited love, broken friendships, black market racketeers and post war Vienna all filmed in glorious black and white. Did I mention the soundtrack? The best zither music you can imagine.
The Third Man is a masterpiece! But, I’d dare say ‘obscure’ only among those unfamiliar with the noir genre.
To go with my current profile picture, and the Christmas spirit....
It's real aardvark fur!
I figure increased amount of movie watching is going on lately. I really appreciate this thread. I watched many movies listed here I had not seen yet that was enjoyed for the most part.
I have been on a Charles Bronson kick lately. I think most people know of Death Wish as the most popular Bronson movie, but some of the others are pretty good too. They are not technically great movies, but they have a 70s/80s action charm that I like.
10 to midnight
Not Bronson, but more Golan Globus / The Canon Group movies that I enjoy.
Quoted from LTG:

Kinjite.... Wow.... I usually like gritty movies but the subject was pretty vile. I guess it sets you up to really look forward to the baddie's final death blow.
Tonight's trashy Golan & Globus / The Cannon Group movie is Hospital Massacre aka X-Ray. Have not seen it before.
Saw this recently on TCM:
Vincent Price and Peter Lorre play undertakers who haven't had much business in a while, so need to "Create" some business on their own.
Unfortunately, they pick a perspective client (played by Basil Rathbone) that has an odd ailment. As funny as Price and Lorre are in this film, Basil Rathbone is hilarious! And Boris Karloff does some of his funniest work ever in this movie.
