Random unknown movie recommendations

Posted by   + Show Post
I was just responding in another post about cadence, and it reminded me of the movie Cadence. I don't think many people know about it, but it is an excellent movie that I highly recommend to everyone - not an appropriate family movie. Stars Charlie Sheen and Martin Sheen and the acting is outstanding, I was truly moved by the movie and think about it often. I watched it with my father and it was sort of a bonding moment for us.

Does anyone else have any recommendations for under seen movies they can share? I love to watch well made movies that go unnoticed by the mainstream. Cadence is worth your time. Come back and tell us what you think if anyone watches it.

Election is another interesting movie

And if you want to go older, "Bob Roberts." So funny.

I'm confusing my movies again. I don't know this one. I like Amy Adams, putting this on my growing list here.

Quoting TugBoatMama:

 Somewhat. They start out as just a couple of hacks trying to make a buck and they learn that they know nothing about biohazards or laws regarding disposal of human decomp. But the business begins to grow and the main characters begin to come into thier own. It was pretty good.


Quoting LauraKW:

Cool, does it delve into the crime scene cleaning aspect much? I've always thought that job intriguing.


Quoting TugBoatMama:


 She started a Crime Scene cleaning business after she got to thinking about how stagnant her life had become.



Quoting LauraKW:

Was that about a woman who had wealthy friends and she cleaned houses?



Quoting TugBoatMama:



 I liked Sunshine Cleaning. Emily Blunt and Amy Adams have wonderful chemistry here.

I remember the title, don't remember the movie...

Quoting momtoscott:

 If you were a band geek in high school, Brassed Off is a great movie.

 Stars Ewan McGregor, set in Margaret Thatcher's Britain, coal miners who also have a brass band...Score is full of great British wind band classics.  It came out in the mid 1990s.

Shattered Glass - was that about a disgraced journalist? Starred Anakin Skywalker aka Hayden Christianson? :0)

Quoting ashellbell:

Saved, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Shattered Glass, Fanboys, Hot Rod (if you like dumb comedy).

It's got Jenna Malone, Macauly Culkin, Mandy Moore and Susan Sarandon's daughter (can't remember her name). All of them are high school students at a religious school. Jenna Malone has a boyfriend who comes out as gay to her and she has sex with him trying to 'heal' him and ends up pregnant. She tries to hide it from her super religious friend (Mandy Moore) and has to deal with becoming a single teenage mother. Macauly Culkin is Mandy Moore's handicapped brother and SS's daughter is a Jewish delinquent who is int he school as a last resort from being expelled from other schools.
