In the recent thread “Quickly review the last four movies you’ve seen,” RealityChuck throws off a comment about a movie I’d never heard of before, Cashback, in a way that totally intrigued me – I not only added it to my Netflix queue, I put it at the top.
It’s a great freaking movie. Not a fancy, complicated, profound movie – but an entertaining and engrossing movie with a nice mix of characters that had me smiling throughout. And I never would have come across it in a million years if RealityChuck hadn’t just seen it.
So – let’s recommend some really cool movies that not everyone has already heard about.
My pick (other than Cashback) is The Dead Girl, a mystery, kind of – a drama, anyway – about a girl who gets killed, and some of the people whose lives intersected with hers or with other people’s. That sounds a bit cryptic, but the thing about unexpected delights is going into them without, um, expectations, right?
