Top 5 Best Movies That No One Know About

So there are so many occasions where I'll mention a movie that I like or have watched recently and people go......what movie? So I've decided to do an entry on it. So here are what I think are the Top 5 movies that nobody knows about.

1). Deathproof
- My # 3 movie of all time. I mention what my favorite movies are. I get to this one and people go....what movie is that? So I tell them. It's kind of hard to explain without giving too much away. All I will tell you is that it is Quentin Tarantino at his best. And nobody knows about! Watch it and you won't regret it. So damn good!

2). Warrior
- One of my new favorites and I've been telling everybody about it. This movie blew me away. I won't talk about it too much because this will be the third time that I've mentioned so far. But I can't help it. It is so good. And the reason that it's on this list is that either people don't about it and heard a little bit, but because it didn't have huge megastar actors in it, nobody saw it. Watch it and get blown away.

3) Win Win -
Heard about this one from some friends of mine. So I watched it and loved it. Actually did an entry on this one too. This well written, well casted movie flew right under the radar as well. But if you take the time to watch it, you'll be very pleased that you did. Love this movie!

4). Charlie Bartlett
- Heard about this one from a friend as well and again, I was very pleased. An unknown actor named Anton Yelchin stars in the title role and gives a fantastic performance. This movie is extremely funny but there is a lot of heart behind it. Watch it. It's well worth it.

5). Run Fatboy Run
- Saw a trailer for this one when it was coming out. Looked funny but didn't get too excited about it. Came across it one day, watched it and fell in love with this movie. This movie is similar to Charlie Bartlett in the sense that it is really funny but there are several moments that are very touching and emotional. I actually got teary eyed at the end of this one.

Honorable Mention - 500 Days of Summer
- The only reason it didn't make the list? More people know about it than the others. But I still hear about people who have never heard of it so I thought it was worth mentioning.

So there they are. The top 5 movies that I think nobody know about. If your looking for a new movie to watch and don't know what you want, seriously think about any one of these. These movies flew right under the radar and deserve much more attention. FYI- I have done an entry on every single one of these movies. For your information. So check em out! Yes indeed.

The Descendants

So I've been waiting to see this movie for a while. After the performance that Clooney gave in "Up In The Air", I couldn't wait to see this performance. So after watching it, I have to say, my overall rating is.....not bad but it was missing something.

The Descendants stars George Clooney as a father of 2 who inherited a rich amount of land in Hawaii. Along with his many cousins that a own a part as well, he and he alone has to decide what to do with the land. Either way, they will become very very rich. While all this is going on, his wife of many years, is in a coma from a terrible boating accident. He then decides to go retrieve his teenage daughter from a boarding school to have her home while all this is going on. His oldest daughter is played by Shailene Woodley who I think gives a breakout performance and should have been nominated for best supporting actress. She was awesome and what I think the best part of the movie. Now for twist, he discovers through his daughter no less, that his wife was cheating on him. So what do you do in that situation. You find out your wife has been cheating on you when she's in a coma. You have 2 daughters who are super emotional and you have to decide the fate a piece of historic Hawaiian land. It's no wonder why this movie won Best Adapted Screenplay and was nominated for Best Picture.

The Descendants is a great film. My only issue with it, is that it is super depressing and there are only a few moments of clarity. I guess that's what real life is, but I was hoping for a lighter undertone. But, The Descendants is still an amazing movie. It has a lot of emotion, some comedy and fantastic acting. Watching it is worth it, just know going in that your probably going to get a little sad. Good good stuff.....yes indeed.

So I did a quick review on Warrior in another entry and I mentioned that it is such a good movie, that it deserves it's own entry. So here it is. The movie, what I think, was the best movie of 2011. I am shocked that it only got nominated for 1 award. Probably one of the most underrated movies in a long time, an not too many people know about it.

Warrior stars Tom Hardy who is recently back from Iraq, crashes with estranged father and starts training at a MMA/boxing club. He puts a beating on the #1 middle weight in the world and gets enrolled into a world wide tournament for the best fighter in the world. While all this is going on, his brother, Joel Edgarton, is on the other side of the city trying to do what he can from losing his house. Edgarton works as a Physics teacher, trying to make ends meet to provide for his wife and 2 kids. He makes the decision to start fighting again to make extra money, buts ultimately gets suspended when the school finds out about it. So because of his new free time, he decides to fight full time and actually gets into the same tournament his brother is in. The 2 brothers are estranged themselves over some personal history with their parents and actually only have 1 conversation throughout the entire movie. They wind up facing each other in the tournament and......well you'll just have to watch to see what happens. But I will say this.....I've never seen a fight with so much emotion......ever.

Warrior is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Tom Hardy and Joel Edgarton give amazing performances and Nick Nolte plays their father and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. I can't believe that was the only award that this movie was nominated for. Warrior has a great story, and a fantastic cast. It's super intense and will probably make most people cry. If you haven't seen Warrior, go buy it because you'll wanna watch it over and over again. Yes Indeed.

Dave Song of the Month


I would dig a hole all the way to China
Unless of course I was there
Then I'd dig my way home
If by diggin’ I could steal... the wind from the sails
Of the greedy men who rule the world

Still you're my best friend
And after a good, good and me
Wake up and make love after a deep sleep
Where I was dreamingI was dreaming of a
Dream Girl

I was feeling like a creep
As I watched you asleep
Face down in the grass in the parkIn the middle of a hot afternoon
Your top was untied and I thought how nice
It'll be to follow the sweat down your spine

You're like my best friendAfter a good, good and me
Wake up and make love after a deep sleep
Where I was dreaming
I was dreaming of a
Dream Girl

Caught by a wave
My back to the ocean
It knocks me off my feet and
Just as I find my footing
Here you come again
Dream Girl

Dream Girl
