Lists by jakeshill2
This is a list of personal favorites I would recommend to everyone (especially film buffs like myself!)- sort of a movie bucket list if you will. There's a little of everything: silents, classics, cult favorites, foreign language, award winning, etc. I consider these all to be seriously great (i.e. well-made and influential as well as entertaining) films that are worth watching at least once if not over and over again. This list will continue to be updated, there are tons of great movies I just haven't gotten around to watching yet. Suggestions are always appreciated!
Good films you've probably never seen/heard of because they are often overlooked/forgotten and underrated. I feel that all these movies are either virtually unknown to most or deserve a higher rating than they currently have (meaning although they may have a rating under 7.0, they are still worth a look).
Fans of (often times B-grade) horror and sci-fi will have to agree these films boast the greatest (sometimes cheesy) special effects and performances that make them cult classics. These movies are essential, whether or not you choose to take them seriously. I'm a huge fan of Hammer horror productions, Roger Corman's early work, 50s and 60s creature features, an avid viewer of TCM underground, and love to seek out the "best of the worst". I'll update as soon as I find another gem and in the meantime would love some recommendations!
Also includes made-for-TV movies.
