PostSubject: Little known movies with celebrity names in them   Tue Mar 05, 2013 1:21 am

Since I saw The Lovely Bones by Peter Jackson yesterday, I found it weird that a movie done by one of my favorite directors could escape me for so long, especially in these internet times.

So, what are other little known movies directed by, or starring, well known names.

"Meet The Feebles" is my favorite Peter Jackson flick. I can't believe the guy who made it and other personal faves like Brain Dead and Bad Taste now directs commercial fare like King Kong and LOTR.

It's mind boggeling for sure. And Sam Raimi of Evl Dead and Darkman fame now does Spiderman movies.

Speaking of Sam Raimi, here's an excellent little film he did in 2000 called "The Gift" starring Cate Blanchett and Katie Holmes.



Raimi also managed to get a truly creepy, effective performance out of Keanu "wooden" Reeves.

Great flick. And a great, totally gratuitous topless scene of Katie Holmes before she got that Scientology stank all over her.

Everybody's gotta start someplace. David S. Goyer, who wrote the last two "Dark Knight" movies, got his start working for Full Moon Studios on stuff like "Demonic Toys."

Agreed. It's a fantastic movie, and the Katie Holmes scene is just icing.

One I discovered the other day is Marissa Tomei in an uncredited role as a gym employee in the original Toxic Avenger. She was 20 at the time (!)

That was almost as shocking of a unexpected topless scene as Reese Witherspoon in the movie Twilight.

How about Brad Pitt in the great Cutting Class. Apparently he was also an extra in Less Than Zero too.

Daphne Zuniga has a brief part in one of my favorite no-budget horror movies - The Dorm That Dripped Blood (or as it was known for years from my bootleg copy "Pranks").

Titanics James Cameron directed Piranha 2.

Jen Aniston did Leprechaun, not physically, but was in the first movie.

Recently John Depp and that Delouise kid were in 21 JumpStreet.

And one of my all time fave's: Shakes The Clown and a brilliant cameo as Jerry the Mime no less by none other than Robin Williams.

I'm sure there are a zillion more.

Lots of really BAD movies being recommended here, I'm sure there are a few good ones out there as well. Very Happy

Duel is a fantastic suspense film, I saw it during the theatrical re-release in 1983 (it was originally shown on TV in the states, in theaters elsewhere in the world). It probably isn't very well known amongst the general public but it is widely discussed by film buffs.

Now that I see the big rig, the memory is jogged.

It was on the bill at the drive inn when we saw Omega Man.

How about Suck, the vampire movie with Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Alex Lifeson and Henry Rollins? Not a great film, but a lot of fun regardless.

How about Going Overboard with Adam Sandler? Sandler's first - and worst film (he did have small parts in TV acting beforehand). Billy Bob Thornton also had a bit part in it. Horrendous movie, but it fits the thread.
