Required Viewing: B-movies, oldies, unknowns

Post your recommendations for good flicks. Not blockbusters, or obvious ones like Citizen Kane, but the under dogs that most people might otherwise not know to watch. Post a movie poster to get the folks buzzin'!


My recommendation: Who Killed the electric car?

A documentary about the invention, innovation, production, and eventual destruction and cover up of the electric car industry. Another green motivation to keep you on your bike until the electric car comes back.

It took me a few minutes to "re-find" it....lost that link with computer change over move it seems.

Free Movies (public domain)
http://www.jonhs.net/freemovies/index.php

There was another free movie site too.....not as much and not as well designed, but it did have a number. I don't remember enough about it to try to find it now though.


A few other fun similar links.


Bee-Line TV (streamed international TV)
http://www.beelinetv.com/


Free Old-Time Radio

You're probably thinking of Archive.org.

I'm pretty sure he was referring to my 1st link. I remember Danno commenting about it when I posted it last year some time.


My additions to the B movie list (both great satire movies):

Amazon Women On The Moon


Mars Attacks!

Oh, well, Archive.org's movie section has a lot of cool stuff too, then.

I got Plan 9 From Outer Space there once. Definitely a must see.

Tremors was great, but the sequel's.....that I saw.....were really bad.


One of the best movies of all time..............and still relevant, IMHO.



'The Day The Earth Stood Still'

A double-feature..

Plan 9 From Outer Space (Sci-Fi so bad it's almost a spoof of itself)

followed by...

Ed Wood (A Johnny Depp movie about Ed Wood, the Writer/Producer/Director of Plan 9 Martin Landau got an Academy Award for his role, playing an aging Bela Lugosi.)
