    anyone remember Nelvanna Productions animated feature..."Rock and Rule"?

    that was a cool flick - not really for the kiddies due to its subject matter, but a fun watch

    Laura (1944), Faust (1926), Nosferatu (1922) and M by Fritz Lang are all great oldies that most people don't know... amazing films though! Newer ones I would have to say Wasabi (french), The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe animated version... there are so many good films, but this is a good subject because it can recommend films to others that would have othewise never thought of a certain film. I know that my DVD collection has so many rare films (mostly oldies) and I always want to know of some good rare ones!

    A lot of foreign films would fall into this category.

    So Close (Chinese Charlie's Angels)
    Storm Riders (Chinese Super Hero Kung Fu)
    A Man(Sword?) Called Hero (Based on Chinese comics)
    Demon City Shinjuku (Japanimation)
    Wasabi (Can't go wrong with Jean Reno)
    and
    any foreign Jet Li movies except Hero. He's funny as hell. For some reason (language maybe), he never comes across as funny in American movies.

    "Kenny and Company" great coming of age film from 1976 - not on par with "Stand by Me" , but a really cool film for boys in the 12 thru 14 year range. If you're a 70s retro nut, you'll love this film. Anchor Bay is releasing a DVD this June - only boots available now.

    Also more known - but still vague is "White Zombie" 1932 with Bela Lugosi, creepy and cool and shot on the Dracula sets at Universal, but by a private production company. It has alot of German expressionists influence and a fun thing to watch if you can find a good quality copy.

    High Risk (1981) Starring: James Brolin, Lindsay Wagner, Clevon Little, James Coburn and Anthony Quinn.

    It is too bad this has yet to be released on DVD properly, just as a bargin bin title.

    One of my favorite unknown heist films is Grand Slam with Klaus Kinski. Also along these lines but perhaps a bit more known because they now have Criterion releases are Rififi and Le Circle Rouge. Look for these if you like heist films.

    Kenny and Company... wow, didn't know we had Don Coscarelli fans in here. Thats awesome. White Zombie was released by Roan, and has an exquisite transfer, even though its only a Laserdisc port. As for the rest of these movies, I have heard and own. Rock and Rule had an awesome 2 disc set released by Unearthed earlier this year. Covermee seems to like his silent films a lot. Can't blame him. I just watched the 2 disc Criterion dvd of M last night, and its never looked better. I'm just surprised that he didn't mention Dr. Caligari, or Der Golem.
    Kakihara1 stated that everyone seems to hate Existenz.. Blasphemy.. Cronenberg is god, and that movie ruled!
