    Default Favorite Offbeat Movies

    What movie do you love that wasn't necessarily a blockbuster smash, but you found well done and almost have to watch when you find it on cable..

    I'll start with one of my all time faves... Gross Pointe Blank.

    "Gonzaga is a special place, with special people!" - Dan Dickau #21

    You can't make a half sandwich. If it's not half of a whole sandwich, it's just a small sandwich.

    Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot...

    Funny. Before I hit the click for the thread, that was the movie I had in mind to name. Extremely funny, extremely raw - weird mix, totally my type of movie.

    Inglorious #######s: QT's most underrated film.
