CJ de Mooi is apparently appearing/starring a film later this year according to the paean to his ego that is his website. I wonder if this will fall into the category of "hidden gems" or not.

>Red Rock West
A modern western starring Nicolas Cage. This is pretty close to a definition of a hidden gem with a great cast and a story that really takes you in and holds you.

It also has J. T. Walsh in it which really shouldn't have been left out of the poster.

Its a superhero parody that feels like a cross between Super and Hobo with a Shotgun minus all the gore.
That may sound like something that would barely pass the time but it stars Woody Harrelson in a role that is well suited to him and has its fair share of slapstick fights. Its fun and if 'super parody' was a genre of its own this would be the best.

A cook travels across America in a food-truck after quitting his job because his boss was a dick and a critic a fucking assclown. Despite the topic its a good lighthearted adventure film that might motivate you to cook something instead of living off ready meals.

>Jack Reacher
Tom Cruise has the mind of an infant so he made this with his own production company. Our hero Jack Reacher (played by Tom Cruise, naturally) is a reclusive war veteran and all around super-detective-cop who makes women's panties wet with a smile and can pound any guys ass into the pavement with his super army soldier skills.

>The Frighteners
A 90s ghost movie starring Michael J Fox. Fuck you.

>The Legend of 1900
Its kinda like Forest Gump only its about a piano playing guy who never leaves the ship he was probably born on. The film will make you pretty damn reflective if you happen to be a reclusive shell of a man who never leaves his comfort zone.

You forgot the pioneering shooting techniques required in order to properly reflect a 6'-6" Reacher with only a 5'-6" Cruise to hand without using an apple crate. I swear, at times it looks like the cast aren't even looking each other in the face.

Extreme Measures is a film I really enjoyed. With Hugh Grant, Gene Hackman and Sarah Jessica Parker, I can only assume it was meant as a serious big-budget thriller - but they didn't pull it off. What they did make seems like a charming low-budget B-movie, whose bad acting and ridiculous plot make it a thoroughly enjoyable unintentional comedy.

It reminded me of a Canadian version of Sightseers, feeling-wise, but not as good. Still worth a watch, though.

Possibly due to a lack of marketing, I'd never heard about this when it came out. An excessive offering from the Wachowskis, it's incredibly heavy on visual flair even if the story isn't anything new. They also seem to have just blatantly ripped off a classic post-apoc novel for certain bits of it, but it's worth watching just for the art direction.

Well this was a waste of time. The only good things to be said about it are it has Natalie Portman playing a stripper and a scene where Clive Owen and Jude Law have cybersex.

One of the best found-footage films I've seen in my time. Two friends decide to travel the world and do one of those video blog things, and something bad happens. Apparently the trailer is shit, so don't just go by that.

Starr Starry Night was pretty highly regarded on release but I only caught it last night having been a fan of the guy who did the soundtrack for years. I will have to check out some of the other films he has worked on.


Its a pretty sweet movie about a young girl dealing with the death of her grandfather. It has some nice visuals but they are really just a backdrop to how she is feeling.

While I remember, be sure to check out Perfume: The Story of a Murderer if you haven't already it has a great cast including the late Alan Rickman and in my opinion is the perfect movie.

Shame it got bad reviews from critics who thought they were watching a murder thriller when really the film has a highly existential touch to it.

I saw this on BBC2/4 and then went and grabbed a copy of the book. It was a very quick read, I got through the last three quarters over a single afternoon; I have to admit I found the style quite pulpy and any existentialist musings from the writer were laid on with a fucking trowel. Then again, it was written by a German, and they don't really do sublety. I'd still recommend the book if you're like me and always want to compare adaptations with their source material.

"Hidden Gem" might not be the right classification as, it's by Charlie Kaufman but it's not really deserving of its own thread. Really great film.

Yeah definitely an essential cult hit. I didn't take to the humour but it definitely made me take a look at myself in the mirror the first and second time I watched it.

I'd recommend Repo man if you like the Punk aesthetic or Ghost World if you liked the themes.

I've only ever seen it once but it stuck in my mind forever It was back in 2004 and was mildly hallucinating and suffering severe stomach cramps a few hours after a heavy judo session where I'd fucked up a black-belt's shit for the fist time. The general mish-mash of event of that day have left that film branded into my brain and I feel like watching it again would do it a disservice, much like re-reading Portnoy's Complaint.

Apropos of nothing very much at all, Oldboy (which I'd never seen before) popping up on channel 4 just I came up on some very, very good MDMA back in 2007 was a very similar experience.

I've never been able to tell with repo man if it is good or if it is crap (even though I actually bought it after seeing it). I've watched it through a few times, I guess it is a film that gets by on it's feeling and style rather than its plot. It hits all of the right emotional notes even if it is fairly crude in other respects.

I started reading Headhunters and was bored stiff by the end of the first chapter. Something about the narrator being an arrogant prick art dealer is all I remember.
