I decided to put a little list together of movies that a lot of people have not seen, but I believe people should. Some are better known than others, but I believe every single on in this list is worth your couple of hours.
The Boondock Saints
This movie is a little on the violent side, a lot in the funny side, mostly in the smart side and all about good action. The score is unreal, the acting is great and the story makes you say “man I wan to do that.” This movie was never released in Theaters in the US, but became a cult classic. Some people are into this movie so much that they have tattoos that are related to the movie.
Some movies make you think about how you live your life, this one is one of them. Even though it is a SCI-FI/Action film it really touches on what society can become… or has society already gotten there? Watch the movie where the gun kata first appeared.
City of God
If your mental pictures of poverty all come from sponsor a kid commercials it is time you take another look. City of God is a movie that will show you a reality that as a society we don’t want to face. This movie is even more relevant after Katrina, because while some people think that poverty and “third world” problems are so far away, the disaster showed how close to us poverty really is.
So what are you waiting for, go rent these movies or add them to your netflix list.
