25 Spectacular Movies You Probably Haven’t Seen
Every once in a while, we need a bunch of good movie recommendations, and this is the exact list you need. Draw the curtain, sit down comfortably and pick one of these movies to watch, life can never be so wonderful.
The Man from Earth
This small-budget sci-fi gem is a master class of storytelling. An impromptu goodbye party for Professor John Oldman becomes a mysterious interrogation after the retiring scholar reveals to his colleagues he never ages and has walked the earth for 14,000 years. Unusual, engaging and thoughtful, this film stands proudly among the best science fiction films ever made.
The Brave One
A woman struggles to recover from a brutal attack by setting out on a mission for revenge. The film poses controversial questions to the soul rightness of conducting vengeance on those who impart their control and power on others. It will effect you not only during its screen time, but afterward during the postmortem you & your friends will most surely have.
David Fincher’s most underrated movie by far. Wealthy financier Nicholas Van Orton gets a strange birthday present from wayward brother Conrad: a live-action game that consumes his life. This multilayered, noirish descent into one man’s personal hell is also a surreal, metacinematic journey that, two years after the phenomenon Se7en, further demonstrated that director David Fincher was one of Hollywood’s true contemporary visionaries.
Forget about Fight Club, this is the best and most complex movie about multiple personality disorder. Stranded at a desolate Nevada motel during a nasty rainstorm, ten strangers become acquainted with each other when they realize that they’re being killed off one by one. The high suspense will make you sit on the edge of your seat from the opening credits to the very end.
“Broken Arrow” is the term used to describe a nuclear device that has been lost. In this movie, two nuclear missiles are stolen by rogue US pilot Deakins, but hot on his trail is his co-pilot Hale and a Park Ranger, Terry. The action takes place in Utah’s canyon country, it’s a high stakes game of cat and mouse. If you like other action-packed movies from John Woo like Face/Off and Mission Impossible 2, you will enjoy this one as well.
