A thread on the AO Forum got me thinking about all of the obscure movies I've seen. Most of them I saw as a child/teen. But I still love'em today! Well, most of them.
Green Card (1991) - This is probably the least obscure of the group, but I've never met anyone in real life who's seen it. Have you? I love this movie.
It's about a woman (Andie MacDowell) who helps a friend out by marrying another man (Gerard Depardieu) so he can get his Green Card. This is *not* your ordinary RomCom. It's sweet and sad and wonderful. (and very tame by today's standards--if you can call them standards) Also? The soundtrack includes Enya. Need I say more?
Krull (1983) - This B movie combines bad 80s hair, terrible humor, atrocious special effects and even worse acting. Are you sold yet? Even so, it's still one of my favorites. Mr. N and I have seen it dozens of times. There's something strangely endearing about it. If you want a good laugh, this is your movie! Just for fun, here's the Amazon description:
In a fantasy adventure, set in a world peopled by creatures of myth and magic, a prince embarks on a quest to find the magical Glaive and then rescues his young bride. Colwyn (Ken Marshall) is the leader of a mythical sword-and-sorcery group in pursuit of "the Beast" that has kidnaped his fiance, Lyssa (Lysette Anthony).Sounds pretty great, right?
White Dwarf (1995) - Does anyone else remember this Made for TV Movie? I loved this one. I'll admit, I haven't seen it since I was young, but I'd love to get my hands on it again! But since the VHS is almost $90 on Amazon, I'll be waiting a while to purchase it.
Crossing Delancey (1988) - This is another sweet romance. Without all the crap you get nowadays. (They just don't leave anything to the imagination anymore!) It's a story about a pickle-man who falls in love with his friend's granddaughter. It has a few strange moments, but that's what makes it sweet. And strange.
Harold and Maude (1971) - This is the only one on the list that I saw first as an adult. My dear friend was a HUGE Cat Stevens fan at the time and she found this movie, who's whole soundtrack was Cat Stevens! It *is* odd--an old, old, OLD woman and a very young man fall in love. Can't say it's one of my favorites, but I did see it!
The Night They Saved Christmas (1984) - Jaclyn Smith in a Christmas Sweater having hot cocoa with Santa Claus? Elves with mutton chops bigger than Texas? Enough said.
What obscure movies have you seen? Have you seen any from my list?
