What’s a movie you love that you swear no one ever talks about like the world has forgotten it?

  1. I just assumed no one would say this since I've never found anyone that knew what I was talking about. I still have a copy of it on VHS even..

  2. I loooved this movie when I was little. I was always renting it from the library and watch it before bed lol. I know a lot of kids thought it could be scary but the characters were fun-loving and sweet. I wanted them to be my friends.

  3. Apparently during the production some dumbass studio exec couldn't understand the title, and that's why there's a literal mine included in the movie. Awesome movie, and a great exploration of how the 'badguys' are people with feelings and lives of their own.

  4. Love this movie. Recently was watching one of those vanity fair career timeline videos with Jeff Daniels, and he spoke about filming The Squid And The Whale. He has sexy scenes with Anna in that, which is cringy and awkward bc of the age gap (among other things), but was doubly awkward for the actors since Jeff had previously played her dad in Fly Away Home. Lots of jokes in between sexy scenes to cope with the awkwardness.

  5. I loved this book and movie so much, it reminds of my mom, who grew up in England during ww2 and loved it before I did. I tried to pass it on to my daughter but she doesn’t find it as charming as I or my mom did. The Secret Garden has a special place in my heart.

  6. Funny story with this one. I studied the book at school, so I had read the book a lot. That year for my birthday the movie came out around the same time. I have a fractured family structure so none of them really talk to each other. For some reason nearly every family member decided that they wanted to take me to a screening of the film. So I saw the film nearly 7 times in the matter of two weeks.

  7. This is one of my all-time favorites and I feel like not a whole lot of people in my age group agree haha. The music is lovely, and it has a bit of a haunting feeling on top of innocence. It also portrays mental health very well for its time

  8. Kate : It's Christmas and we skate. I have the flu and we skate. I have a boyfriend in London that I never see. I skate every day for you, so that you can play Dr. Frankenstein with this guy. I show up every morning for seven months so that you can give him two days to go off whoring in New York City?

  9. So one of the best memories of my teen years was watching this movie on HBO with my best friend Johnny at his house in the summer of 1984. We probably watched it a dozen times that season, to the point that everyone was a hoser and needed to take off, eh. I should add that we lived near Niagara Falls NY so we encountered Canadians frequently so it was even funnier to us, especially considering the use of eh was heavily en vogue then. We were 14, so it didn't take much to entertain us.

  10. I showed my kids that movie (12 and 15 at the time) and that scene when the cook farts during silent operation, my daughter legitimately pissed herself laughing and my son was in pain from laughing so hard.

  11. YES! Watched this again recently. My favourite part is when Nathan Lane gets shot out of the chimney and comes back into the house and they can only speak to each other in grunts and mimes because they're so distraught.

  12. That, The Rescuers, and An American Tail were three movies I watched all the time as a kid. I haven’t thought about those in a very long time, but I guess it’s probably why I like mice and rats so much

  13. The Fall. It is so beautiful, and just not what I expected, and is just so different. Discovered the lovely Lee Pace in this movie, and the breathtaking scenes i cant even describe. Made me also really like watching Tarsem Singh movies, but this is the best. The effects being practical effects are mind-boggling. Also, I suggest reading about it. It is really interesting how it was made, like a lot of the young actresses lines were improvised. I can't wait until my kiddo is older and would be interested in sitting down and watching this with me.

  14. The Court Jester. I've never met anyone outside of my family who has even heard of it. It's really old so I understand why, but It's a shame more people haven't seen it.

  15. If you have a chance, check out the book! It is absolutely beautiful. There's so much lyricality to the actual words that you miss out on in the movie. Although my favorite line is intact:

  16. I take every opportunity I can to use the quote, “you know what this place needs? An oversized poster of Atlantic City. Oh wait! There’s one!”

  17. ...what am I going to say? "I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How've you been?"

  18. "A thousand innocent people get killed every day, but you detonate a millionaire's pet and you're marked for life."

  19. I love that movie. It's a movie about life that somehow got that magic, akin to My Neighbor Totoro or Porco Rosso.

  20. Do you ever have that dream where you're standing at the top of a pyramid wearing nothing but godlike, flowing robes, and there's a bunch of naked women throwing tiny pickles at you?

  21. That is a fantastic movie; I feel like it should be required viewing in schools, because holy shit does it encourage critical thinking.

  22. I talk about it all the time. I write for indie games and the "Thank God we invented the whatever device" concept has stopped lazy writing on more than one occasion!

  23. Our copy of Home Alone on VHS had a trailer for Death Becomes Her. It always scared the shit out of me because, if I remember this correctly, the trailer shows a woman with a giant hole in her midsection from a cannonball.

  24. I love this movie! I showed it to my husband when we were dating. He still loves to shout "The morgue?! She'll be FURIOUS!"

  25. Pump Up the Volume. Introduced me to the band The Pixies. It sort of had a premonition that young people were going to be have this method of mass communication with one another in ways that circumvented parental oversight. It just got the medium really really wrong.

  26. Balto! Which I could have sworn was massively popular!! When people started talking about The Swan Princess again randomly, I assumed Balto would be next as they were two of my favorites as a kid. Yet when I mentioned it to my friends and such, no one recalled it.

  27. I used to be able to quote this whole movie as a kid. Never understood why he got made fun of for being part wolf. I thought it was pretty bad ass.

  28. Great film! This was the first film I came across Tobey Maguire in and I always associate him with this ahead of even Spider-Man.

  29. This and the Birdcage are some of the best feel good movies ever!!!! God, Patrick Swayze (RIP😭), Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo were all so wonderful in this. I absolutely still adore To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar.

  30. I just can NOT understand why this movie isn't universally loved. Robin Williams and Edward Norton playing completely against-type in such a hilarious way. Catherine Keener is excellent. Danny Davito and Harvey Fierstein are perfectly cast and perfectly hilarious.

  31. Major Payne: Boy, I am two seconds from being on you like white on rice in a glass of milk on a paper plate in a snowstorm. I'm gonna put my foot so far up your ass, the water on my knee will quench your thirst.

  32. Pete's Dragon, and James and the Giant Peach. My all time favorite movies growing up, but when I mention them people act like they don't know what I'm talking about. Also Cats Don't Dance

  33. What Dreams May Come. Haven't seen it since I was a kid but I used to love that movie. Don't remember much now tho.

  34. A Fish Called Wanda. I don't know anyone irl, under the age of 40, that knows this movie! It's one of the funniest movies ever. My favorite Kevin Kline movie, hand down!

  35. Let me just correct a few things, okay? Aristotle was not Belgian, the principle of Buddhism is not "every man for himself", and the London Underground is not a political movement.

  36. Zathura 100% If you haven't seen it, it's like Jumanji but in space, it's made by the same creator, if you have seen it, tell me im not alone

  37. I loved Zathura growing up. It was the first movie I saw Kristin Stewert in and that nostalgia stopped me from hating her for Twilight.

  38. Aside from one instance on Reddit, I’ve never heard a single person talk about the 2005 movie Robots. It’s got adult jokes that kids won’t catch, a lot of humor, and Robin Williams.

  39. It’s surprising since it’s got a pretty all star cast, Ewan McGregor, Robin Williams, Halle Berry, Amanda Bynes, and Mel Brooks to name a few

  40. Short Circuit, literally everyone that I talk to has never watched it, or heard of it. It's sad too, because I love that movie so much.

  41. "What if you don't catch it? What if it goes out and melts down a busload of nuns? How would you like to write the headline on that one?"

  42. The Birdcage is comedy royalty in my mind. I mean, Robin Williams, Nathan Lane, Diane Weist, Gene Hackman, Calista Flockhart, Christine Baranski and Hank Azaria!

  43. Drop Dead Fred "That's not how the pigeons do it!!" "Cobwebs" Absolutely fell in love with Rik Myall from the very first time I saw that movie!!

  44. I was literally an adult before I realized this movie wasn’t made for children, I must have watched it a hundred times as a kid. It hits very differently but equally poignantly as an adult IMO.

  45. An African comedian opened one of the very first comedy shows I ever went to and he had a line that was something like, "we have to deal with famine, wild animals, Coke bottles falling out of the sky..."
