So, I’m getting over the “feeling sorry” for myself state and facing the reality of the recovery ahead for my ruptured Achilles. I’ll be in a cast for a minimum of 3 months and likely a soft walking cast for another 2-3 months after that. I’m hoping that after 9 months, I’ll be walking and jogging normally but may take at least one year.
I’ve been told by a few guys that I should take advantage of this time to build up my upper body. I told them:
No need. I’m built already.🙂
Anyways, I thought it would be a great way to begin a new week by asking a question to get everyone involved. I’ll be working most of the week at home since I won’t (or shouldn’t) be driving. While I will honor most of my travel arrangements and still have a bunch of work to do, I have a feeling I’ll have a lot more time for movies.
I’ve already asked for your list of movies that most influenced you and fav chick flicks. But today, I’d like you to contribute at least 3 films that are amongst your favorites that maybe the average folk may not know of (No Blockbusters or Award winners). So, your list of “Best Unknown (Lesser Known) Films”…
Here’s a few of my recommendations for you:
- The Big Blue ( or Le Grande Blue) – first American film by filmmaker Luc Besson about childhood friends that grow up to be rivals in the sport of Diving. This film nearly made me want to puruse Dolphin Training as a life calling.
- The Prestige – Starring Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, and Michael Caine. About two rival magicians and the secrets of their tricks. One of those films I could see again and again and surpised how few people saw this film.
- Dark City – Need to have a Sci-Fi nomination for you. I first saw Kiefer Sutherland in this film before he was known as the agent who shot everyone in sight. I can’t even describe the film but it’s good.
Okay, your turn.
