5 Lesser Known Movies You Should See

Updated on March 15, 2011

1.) Ink

A film written, directed, and scored by Jamin Winans. It is a nice little flick that tells the tale of two opposing forces that visit humans in there sleep; The Storytellers, who bring you good dreams, and the Incubus, who bring you nightmares. It has very modest, yet unique visual effects, an original plot concept, and surprisingly great acting! It won't feel like an independent flick when you watch it. Spread this little gem around, lets help it go viral.

2.) The Stoning of Soraya M

First off, if you don't like reading subtitles, you may want to skip this one. Directed by Cyrus Nowrasteh, this movie is somewhat slow, and you might find it hard to sit through the dialogue which is condescending to women, but the thing that makes this movie worth watching is the fact that the events of it are existent in real life, and not uncommon in some areas of the world. The leading actress, Mozhan Marno delivers an extremely powerful performance. There is no action, no stunning graphics, no sex appeal, and no comedy, but it does have the one thing many modern flicks are lacking; a great emotion-provoking story.

3.) Stand and Deliver

Ok, ok, so this one is fairly well known, but still it's one that you need to see if you haven't yet. It's an older flick, but still a really great inspirational story about a "tough love" kind of teacher who transforms a class of societal rejects into math wizards. It's a wonderfully uplifting film for both teachers and students, showing that you can make your own future, regardless of what others think.

4.) Equilibrium

Great Movie! Storyline is not perfect, but this movie is pumped full of well choreographed fight scenes and lots of neat flashy special effects. It's a good "shoot 'em up" style flick with a not-so-bad storyline. Guns, martial arts, and sexy ladies, what more does a successful movie need?

5.) Red Dawn

Another older flick, with Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen. It's a fictional story where 1980's United States is invaded by the Soviet Union and Latin America. The story centers around a group of high school students who resist the invasion using crude guerrilla warfare tactics. I liked it a lot when I was in my rebellious teenage years, and still like watching it to see the late Swayze and co-star Sheen in their younger years.

These movies are all fairly different, you may love #1, and then hate #2, and blah blah blah, but I highly recommend all of them! They are great flix well worth the watch!
