10. Collateral


Number 10 on our list is a crime thriller featuring the handsome Tom Cruise with Jamie Foxx in supporting lead. This 2004 released American thriller written by Stuart Beattie revolves around a contract killer – played by Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx when Tom makes Jamie his hostage in an exciting chase.

    Jeffrey, Congratulations on keeping the spirit of David Zou’s presumptuous shitty articles alive. I had no idea there was someone as lazy as David Zou, you proved me wrong. Fargo and Dragon Tattoo on this list? Everyone and their brain dead Terry Schiavo mother has seen Fargo and Dragon Tattoo. I have a great article idea. 10 Lazy blogs for schmucks: Taste of cinema surprisingly places in all 10 spots. You people would seem a little less retarded if did not make such stupid assumptions about your audience.

    Great list and great movies, but why tag on the ” You Probably Haven’t Seen” ? If you like movies and thrillers I bet that you have seen ALL of those movies. Its not like they are extremely unknown or rare….

      I think it’s likely a majority of people have missed out on some of these movies. I’ve seen about half on the list, and only Fargo (which is a bit too renowned for this category) is one that I think is absolutely fantastic. I’d have switched out some of the choices on here for sure.

  • Sean Pak

    Fargo doesn’t belong here. Not because it isn’t great but because it’s very well-known. The article itself says it was a hit. I can think of some other lesser known Coen brothers films that would be better choices.

    Also, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? Really? A super popular book series. The most well-known Swedish film ever. There are tons of excellent Swedish thrillers that aren’t well known. Missed the perfect opportunity to highlight one of those.

    Lastly, how about Asian thrillers? A whole bunch have been made there.

    All of these are great films, but the title is rubbish. 3/4th of these films are widely known, and have won major nominations, awards and acclaim.

    Frankly this article, seems like it was written by someone born in the late 90′s early 00′s who may not have the deepest well to pull titles from.

    Here’s a real list that pulls from over 4 decades of film, mixing sub-genres and there’s even a few hidden gems from popular directors on your list.

    “Repulsion” (1963)
    “The Laughing Policeman” (1973)
    “God Told Me To” (1976)
    “Black Sunday” (1977)
    “8 Million Ways to Die” (1986)
    “Dead Ringers” (1988)
    “Zero Effect”) (1998)
    “Ravenous” (1999)
    “Two Hands” (1999)
    “The Man Who Wasn’t There” (2000)
    “The 25th Hour”(2001)

    “Bug” (2006)

    Cut me a check and I’ll write you some thoughtful copy to accompany those titles.
