Wasn't expecting legitimacy
I was watching this flick in a hotel room on HBO early in the morning and thought that it was some sort of parody at early 90s B comedies. Then I thought "there is no way that this is actually an early 90s comedy. They are beating me over the head with plaid and rollerblades and other 90s clichés." The I realized Seth Green and Jack Black were in it and I realized that it must in fact be a parody. WRONG! 1993 baby. This movie is so campy, but is so damn entertaining. It's like one of those songs that no one wants to admit they love, yet everyone loves it. Like "I Saw the Sign" or something. Check out this flick at the very least to see Green and Black early in their careers.
Cidade de Deus (2002)
The greatest foreign film I've seen
When a friend recommended I watch this movie, I wasn't all that excited. Subtitles? Call me when the dubbed version comes out. Against my will I watched this Brazilian flick anyway and was pleasantly surprised. The cinematography alone in this movie is worth watching it. Even if you are not interested in violence, Brazil, or (gasp!) subtitles, the camera angles, lighting, and innovative use of handy cams are stunning. The movie has a real documentary feeling to it and features characters that you actually care about. There was not one death that occurred in this movie that came as a relief. I was actually emotionally attached to all of them. (Even the ones that may have deserved a violent death.) To top it all off, the story is extremely complicated and in-depth but is told so well that it is never confusing. Go buy this movie, it's too epic for a rental!
