I have free movie channels for 3 months (DirectTv deal) so I have been watching a lot of movies that I never would have caught otherwise.

Have to say - pretty impressed overall. My favorites so far are It's Kind of a Funny Story and Janie Jones.

It's Kind of a Funny Story is a great story with interesting characters, a positive message, and a great sound track.

I searched on the movie bored for both to see if anyone had mentioned either, and nope. I am so glad I got to see them even if by accident.

On that note, any under the radar movies not discussed before anyone recommends?

Maybe you just don't get it, Dante.

It's the terror of knowing what this world is about. Watching some good friends scream, 'get me out!'

WOW! I am surprised you really didn't like it Dante. I even recorded it so the Boy could watch it too - and he really liked it. From what I can tell from your posts that I have read, I thought we had similar taste in movies.

ETA: LOL @ Smirk

I recommend Office Space. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0151804/

I saw a movie called 'Lake Mungo' on fear.net a while ago. Although not great-- it's better than the usual schlock hiding in there.

I downloaded a bunch of hand-held movies - I think Lake Mungo, among them. Will have to give it a try.

Among the bunch was one called "Home Movie" - sorta meh. But I didn't go to sleep so it had that going for it.

Anny, if you haven't seen it already, you might want to check out "World's Greatest Dad", with Robin Williams - it has the same vibey-vibe going on as ..Funny Story..., albeit a bit darker. It also uses Under Pressure - which, honestly, brings any movie up an extra 1/2 cookie in my book.
