The Shawshank Redemption is one of my favorite movies...easy to forget it was a Stephen King story.
Mars Attacks was under-rated... I though it was hilarious.
Same goes for Zoolander.
The Matrix is another of my all time favorite movies. I think when people bash it, it's just Sour Grapes. Brilliant concept, plot, special effects... flawless continuity which is rare in a sci fi film that isn't directed by James Cameron!
Which brings me to my recommendations- If you haven't seen The Abyss, SEE IT NOW! Excellent all around!
For a good laugh ( a REALLY, REALLY good laugh) you MUST see Robin William Live On Broadway! I know, I know, it's not really a MOVIE... but it's easily the best Stand-Up comedy routine I've ever seen. A word of warning- it's downright raunchy in parts... definitely NOT for the kiddies. Anyway, you can find it on the Kazaa network easily. If you don't LYAO I'll take a photo of myself eating a bowl of worms and let Plastic post it on Squirrel World!
There are plenty of others I'd like to recommend (and a few to warn about... Reign of Fire :thumbdown: ) but I don't feel like it right now.
