Lists by rlhron
These films have either been overshadowed by other films, forgotten, failed at the box office, received bad reviews, rated too low on IMDB, have a small cult following, or are out-of-print.
When I'm in the mood for a certain type of film, I pull from this list.
The following genres make up the list: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Crime, Cult, Documentary, Drama, Epic, Horror, Musical, Noir, Romance, Sci-Fi, Sports, Suspense, War, Western, Silent and Foreign films in languages: Japanese, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Korean, Cantonese, Russian, Portuguese, Swedish, Maltese, Hindi, Somali and Dari.
Why are there so few films with females as the sole lead? This list shows how women can get top billing and the men are only in minor, supporting roles. The list would not have been complete without films like Million Dollar Baby and The Girl with the Pearl Earring even though the females either didn't receive top billing or were not the sole lead of the picture.
Have you seen all these movies?

My 2nd annual, pre-Oscar picks of the best films of the year.
In 1939, the "Golden Year of Hollywood", classics like Gone with the Wind, Stagecoach, The Wizard of Oz, Wuthering Heights, Midnight, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Of Mice & Men, Young Mr. Lincoln, Love Affair, Jesse James and many, many more great films were released, making that year the single greatest year in cinema history. But when it comes to the greatest decade, the 1970's would be the winner.
Starting in the midsixties, radical filmmakers like Robert Altman, Peter Bogdanovich, John Cassavetes, Brian De Palma, and others were being influenced by foreign art films and avant-garde techniques. By the early seventies, these directors had mastered their craft and helped usher in the greatest decade in cinema history. Listed here are the most notable films released in the 1970's.

These Directors were the masters of their craft and made some of the greatest films of all-time. In all honesty, anyone of them could be named the single greatest director of all-time but Chaplin made the top spot because he did it first and influenced so many other.
When I heard they were once again remaking Carrie, I was ready to pan it until I saw who they had picked for the lead role, Chloë Grace Moretz. In the near future Chloë will be named the "Most Beautiful Woman on the Planet". She will also earn the highest pay of any female, not only for her good looks but also for her acting talent. She may still be very young but Chloë has already made some really good films as the list below shows. As long as she has the right people around her and she makes good choices, her future is going to be hot!
Look out J Lo and Angelina, your replacement is coming.
