The Best Movie That Never Caught On
I love this movie because it brings superheros back down to earth from the over computer animated films we have now. It was very artfully produced. I think it just missed the target market because it's a quieter movie, less action than expected in most superhero films.
best movie quote ever too:
"I bet my dad can beat up your dad"

I didnt like the movie, because of the Samuel L Jackson idiot. I hate his acting, his face, his ... Face.

The number one movie for me under this category would be Children of Men. If you haven't seen it I recommend it and try to pay attention to the shots. They are brilliant. Then afterwards look for the making of the film. It puts things into perspective.
After that one there are a bunch of films I believe don't get the recognition that they deserve.
Off the top of my head though...
The City of Lost Children

with all of you on the ones mentioned ... 'Unbreakable' was terrific for me it's one of those films that I can just watch anytime but Val Kilmer being mentioned reminded me of his movie with Robert Downey Jr ... 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' ... I thought it was hilarious and a good thriller at the same time ... one more ... John Cusack in 'Identity' small thriller but packs a punch both of these films were well written and very well acted by all ....... fav moment in 'Unbreakable' when the dad and the kid look at each other and then they get more 'stuff' to put on the weight bar to see how much the dad can really lift

Old-ish Brit comedy..
It's a comedy first but I guess does fall into the category of *cringe* romantic comedy. I cringe because I usually hate those kinds of films. But this one's just cynical and bizarre enough for me to love it. It has plenty of familiar faces in it (mostly if you're a Brit) but I'd never heard of it when I saw it and no one I've shown it to since has either. It's a little gem in my book.

Children of Men - I might watch it again - I like seeing good ones more than once, you always miss things the first time around
City of Lost Children - looks awesomely creepy
That's a lot of movies to have on top of your head, hehe.
I guess I have a good amount to discover.
After seeing the trailers I'd say about half of those I wouldn't dare watch alone.
AND until I see the rest I still think Unbreakable is my tops for this category. ;)

I had to think about which movie Eastern Promises was...then I remembered the steam room scene haha. I thought the movie was so dull up until that point, and my husband was really loving it up until that point. He kept saying..."Is this necessary?"
Grosse Point Blank was great. I like almost all John Cusak (sp?) movie. Did not like 1408 because I couldn't get over how much he looked like fat Elvis in it.
Haven't seen a lot of your list, I'll have to look them up on IMDB.
Also, Half-Nelson was really good. It made me feel this odd mix of depressed and hopeful.

LMAO @ "Fat Elvis"
Now that you mention it he does kinda look like fat Elvis.

I checked them out. Very interesting choices. I'm adding some of these to my personal "to watch list".
District 9 - alien conspiracies can be interesting if well made, I'd watch it

>.I thought the movie was so dull up until that point,
Then don't watch Solaris. You might hang yourself.
Yeah, Cusack is definitely
I'm a fan of story telling and realism, so I tend to like films like Half-Nelson. They don't need to be over the top or endless action and excitement.
