    I love both of these! I've never heard of most of the others. (Well, Princess Bride of course, and 12 Angry Men. But the rest? I'll be looking out for them!)

    Rigoletto

    It’s a beauty and the beast retelling except that it’s not a romance. It’s set in a small town during the Great Depression, and it’s a really good movie.

    That’s the only one I can think of off the top of my head.

    I think that we watch The Princess Bride about once a month. Hubby likes it, too, but hates it when I say all the lines along with the actors, lol.

    Im going to find some of those other movies, I’m on a mission.

    Love the Boondock Saints-!! It's a quirky one, but love the humour and actors in it. Hubs says it's too gruesome, but hmm.

    The Unbearable Lightness of Being with Daniel Day Lewis is one of my favorites. It's a tad odd in a way, but the movie I've been in love with since it came out..Sabina's hat.

    Tank Girl - another strange, but funny and quirky movie.

    Always - probably my favorite love story, albeit an odd one.

    The Benjamin Buttons movie, but I'm glitching on the title. :cool:

    Is Secondhand Lions obscure? That one was fun.

    Great Expectations, the original 1946 version.
    I've loved it since 1957 when I was 4 yrs. old and stood in front of the TV for three solid hours watching it.

    My mother had me translating for her as she barely understood a word they were saying.

    And it's in English~!!

    I know I’ve watched a TON of obscure movies.

    There's a much older version of Beauty and the Beast by Jean Cocteau called La Belle et la Bete.

    That's my favorite movie of all time.
