Are you the apple that fell off the beaten track? Do normal over-used stories with the same mundane characters bore you? Well then all you have to do is add these movies to your Movie Library and you’ll be good to go.
Here is a list of movies which never got the limelight they required, but sure as hell were worth a watch.
- The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Not as good as the original, but David Fincher seemed to pull it off. In fact, we’d suggest that you watch both the English and Swedish versions of the psychological thriller.
2. Tomboy (2011)
Considering the fact that Tomboy was attending to the sensitive subject of transgendered folk and that it did it well, somehow the Hollywood front almost dismissed the drama movie. With very little talk and marketing surrounding the movie, it wouldn’t be surprising if it drifted past your radar.
A terrifying sci-fi thriller in which two astronauts (Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster) wake up in an abandoned spacecraft with no idea of who they are or how they got there, and quickly realize they are not alone.
4. Take This Waltz
Take This Waltz fits into the list as less of a movie that is as underrated as it is under-viewed, and often dismissed. Reminiscent of a candy floss romantic drama, the movie actually does a really good job of treating a delicate subject well and with a gentle manner of storytelling.
5. A Goofy Movie
This animated film explores fatherhood in all the right ways. Goofy just wants to be part of his son’s life, but his son being a teenager is pushing him away and lying to him. But still all Goofy wants is to be a part of his life and not be shut out. It’s easy to see Goofy’s side and that Max isn’t being fair. On the other hand though, everyone has been a teenager and understands how important becoming independent are and what those years of your life are like.
6. Vanilla Sky
It’s true, Vanilla Sky largely drew a lot of negative reception with the critics and most reviewers. We’re sure some of you who’ve seen the film know that this fantasy drama is truly a work of art.
7. Silent Hill (2006)
Adapted from the Japanese gaming franchise and directed by Christophe Gans, the film doesn’t really require you to be a big fan of the franchise.
8. Killing Them Softly (2012)
Killing Them Softly is a neo-noir crime film directed by Andrew Dominik, that starred Brad Pitt but somehow still fell short of what you would call widespread acclaim. The film is an amazing story of the underworld, and Brad Pitt’s performance is one to stand by.
9. 50 Dead Men Walking (2008)
50 Dead Men Walking is a crime thriller which is kind of like a more Irish version of The Departed. The story follows a badass young guy (played by Jim Sturgess) who infiltrates the IRA for the British Police.
10. Session 9 (2001)
Session 9 is one of those psychological horror stories that stays with you. Unsettling on many levels Session 9 is sure to leave with a strange after taste.
