SO THERE'S A SHIT-TON OF MOVIES OUT THERE, AND IT'S OFTEN HARD TO WEED OUT THE GEMS AMIDST THE SEA OF SHIT. With that in mind, I thought I'd bring back one of those movie suggestion threads we used to do every so often. Theme of this one? Films you think are hype but that aren't all that well known. LEMME KICK OFF WITH... I'm not sure how much of an impact 'Bone Tomahawk' has made on the horror scene online; I know a bunch of folk were raving about it on 4chan for a bit, but outside of that I've not really seen it mentioned too often. Hoping I'm wrong on that, though, cos this is probably one of my favourite horror movies of 2015. It's a slow-burner, focused more on building a sense of dread than cheap scares, but when it gets going it really doesn't hold a lot back. Unlike a lot of horror films it also spends a lot of time developing and fleshing out its cast. Which means you actually give a shit about them when it all starts going horribly for them. War documentaries often use a familiar similar formula to one another, which is why 'Armadillo' is genuinely refreshing. It follows the deployment of a group of Danish soldiers in Afghanistan and does a lot of things differently, ditching protracted interviews and an attempt to build a narrative around the events it documents. Instead it aims to place the viewer as close to the events as possible, to create an authentic experience rather than a story. The film-makers go to great lengths to maintain as invisible a presence as possible, giving the entire film this quasi-omniscient feeling. When the bullets start flying its also an incredibly visceral experience, managing to capture the proper experience of a modern firefight rather than the mythologised version we so often see instead. The greatest of all Cold War satires. Probably the finest film Stanley Kubrick made. Damn thing's over half a century old now and its still funnier than the vast majority of the shite that passes for comedy these days. Earn some movie nerd cred and check it out if you haven't already. I kinda thought that more people had seen this one, but it turns out plebs who ought to know better (LOOKING AT YOU @Kooriryu AND @Xnijmai) have not. Hence its inclusion. I know Edgar Wright is seen as the king of modern British genre-comedy (and rightly so), but Joe Cornish definitely deserves a title for this film. It's also the film that put John Boyega of Star Wars fame on the map. CHECK IT OOT. * * * That's me for now, but if you have any suggestions of your own throw them up and tell us why.
