What are some of your underrated movies?

My Underrated Movies List

It occurred to me yesterday; most of my friends have never seen this list of movies I am about to post. I feel that if you all want to lead long, happy, successful lives, you must follow my lead and watch these movies. Now, I know none of you are as perfect as I am when it comes to finding the unheard of movies that will make your heartstrings tingle with jaw-dropping music, adept writing and dynamic dialogue. Don't forget the dubious amounts of psychological thrill rides. A brief explanation will follow and please, feel free to add because I am always looking for new movies. No order either, except the last few as I have strong feelings toward them.

Be Kind Rewind: Feel good story. Fantastic Score. What more could you ask for? Oh, its funny, too.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels: I haven't met anyone who has seen this classic comedy. Steve Martin and Michael Caine: need I say more?

The Kingdom: This movie literally put me on the edge of my seat. I was on a date and completely ignored her the whole time. That's pretty normal though, now that I think about it.

3:10 to Yuma: I love this movie. I love the western feel and the story. Remake, sure, classic, probably not but you should still see it.

American Psycho: This movie is psychotic, but Bruce Wayne delivers in this.

Knights Tale: I know most people saw this after he died, but this movie makes me wanna fight dragons.

Equilibrium: Can't get away from Christian Bale and the "perfect society" that he learns is not so perfect.

28 Days Later: Scared the @*#$ out of me. The camera angles make it a completely different story. Danny Boyle knows what he is doing. And the score by John Murphy.....done!

25th Hour: Easily one of Edward Norton''s BEST roles...ever!

Sunshine: Danny Boyle + John Murphy + Cillian Murphy = one of the most epic movies I have ever seen. The score is beyond words. It really messes with your mind too. I absolutely love this movie. It is slowly creeping into my top 10 movies of all time.

Others: A Beautiful Mind, King Arthur, Stranger Than Fiction, Stir of Echoes, Starship Troopers, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Anything I miss?

Here is another dream of mine!

World of Dreams Part Deux

This is from two years ago, but it is the most vivid, real, unnerving and memorable dream I have had in my life. This one does not need a title for it would not do the psychotic of it justice. Sorry for the length. I hope you do read it.

It all started on a very beautiful afternoon in what looked to be an area near Cottonwood Heights in Salt Lake. The houses around were really nice. Everything was very new too, and you could tell because the trees were still small. Just a gorgeous day altogether. I was playing kickball with friends or family, this I do not remember. And all of a sudden I just booted this ball almost a mile. Not like Uncle Rico can throw a pigskin over the mountain. In the dream, this literally went over a mile. We were stunned! Of course I did it so I had to get it.

So as I made my trek down the street, the slop began to pick up a bit. I couldn't imagine this kind of hill being safe for little children to ride their bikes on! Who thought of this terrible idea!

Finally, I made it to the spot where the ball had landed. It was a church. Just a very normal church besides the fact that it was huge. I thought it might be a temple/church combo. But it was just a church. Little did I know it held much more.

So I went inside and noticed there was a huge ward party there and a girl I had dated years ago was in there too, along with an old high school buddy. When I saw the girl, she ran over to me and started kissing me. She said how much she missed me and wanted me back. I really didn't know what to say so I went off with my friend to talk about it. What came next actually makes me wonder how my brain could come up with such beauty.

We walked out the back door onto a concrete patio. I thought it weird a church had a patio, but what I saw after that took over my thoughts. The patio overlooked a canyon that was almost 5X the span of the widest part of the grand canyon. This thing was monumental. It was so deep that even the top layers that were touched by the sun were still dark. The immensity filled everything as far as I could see. It went off into both directions. How i didn't notice this on my drive up was very perplexing. The next stop for my eyes were the mountains. They were HUGE! I mean the size of these mountains made Mt. Everest look like the Appalachians. They stretched so far up I could not see the tops. A deep, heavy set purple eminated from them too. Purple mountains. Just like the song.

To top it off, even though it was day, I could see every star in the sky behind them. The Milky Way was a mesh of blue, purple, pink and white that stretched behind the canyons that were between the mountains. The true beauty of it, I feel I am not talented enough a write to describe it. But, go look at any time-lapse photos of the milky way and that will start to give you an idea.

So after I had witnessed this confusing artistry, I turned and saw my friend was gone. The door I came out was locked so went into another door. As soon as I was inside, I saw that it was just one long hallway. No other doors or windows. One door, all the way at the other end and the one I came in. I really had no place to go besides to the next door.

Walking closer I saw a nurse sitting next to a table that had a silver platter with a huge covering over it. She was not a sexy nurse (creepos) but just an old fashioned nurse from around the 50s era. Pretty, but a little weird.

As I made my way near her and to the door, she motioned with her head towards the door as if to ask me if I wanted through. I said I did and she lifted the covering on the tray to reveal a head. Not a human head, the head of a creature, almost wanting to be human. It had a pointed skull, almost like the point of a sword had gone through it but not protruded from the opposite side. It's eyes were red, skin an off white color as if it had taken the color of sour milk. The eyes just looked up at me.

And I woke.

Welcome to my world of dreams!

The world of Dreams

I think while I am on a writing hiatus till I catch up with all my jobs I have (3 part time jobs) I want to let everyone into my psychotic mind: I am posting some dreams. Some people think they have nightmares. That is a normal occurrence for me. Every night I have at least one "nightmare" but they don't really freak me out anymore. I'm like Stephen King without the talent. This one is my most recent. No title. Maybe Vampires and Divorce.

It was at an abandoned, very old, two-story farm house in the middle of who knows where. Whatever was growing there before, wasn't. There was just a large batch of forest that was the background to this paint-peeling box with windows. I began walking up to the house and could see that the lights were on in every room in the house. My first though was my family decided to waste energy. The stars were bright. I could not believe how vibrant the milky way was. It was a swirl of purple and blue mixed with dots of white.

As soon as I placed my foot on the first step of the stairs up to the deck, I felt the numerous hairs on my neck stand up. That's a lot of hair, too. Suddenly a rush came out of the door and slammed into me. I look around to see what it was and I see the dark blur go around the corner. Conveniently, there is an axe located just next to the steps. I grab it and sprint as fast as I can.

Without thinking, as soon as I turn the corner, I bring the axe up to strike. It just happens to be a vampire. An ugly one. Not the sparkly kind. Every tooth on his already bloody face is a fang. Each is so unnaturally sharp, he had to have taken his own tooth-file to sharpen them. His eyes are wide and dark. There are no whites to them, just the darkness of hell ready to burst forth in a fury of blood and violence. He sees me and lunges with uncanny speed. I guess I am much faster because I bring the axe down and remove his head. It was like cutting through warm butter. No sounds of bone just the sound of gurgling and death. Time to wake up.

More vampires on the roof.

There are at least 20 vampires starring down at me. They are not happy with what I have done. I guess they have friends now? I run into the forest at blazing speed. Who knows where I am going. I sure don't! I just run and stumble upon to my house again, yet it is vampire free. No lights, except in the living room. I rush in with my dripping axe and see my friend, sitting there. He looks as if he is about to turn into a vampire.

"She left me, Alex. She left me. Just decided that it was all done and would send me papers in the mail. She wanted to go to Europe and model. Just. . .left. How. . ." He trailed off, quietly.

I don't know what to do. I hear the screams of the dead reverberating through the forest. They are closer. An axe, a divorcee, and 20 vampires heading my way.

He looks up from the floor, tears streaming down his face.

"What do I do, Alex?"

Suddenly I feel selfish. Here is my best friend in the lowest moment of his life and all I can think about is saving the world from these blood-sucking vultures. That is selfish, right?

At this point I wake up. I don't shoot out of bed, just casually open my eyes and think, "What the hell?"
