Mainstream/Cult Criterion Titles

Some are out of print, some are well-deserved, but all are surprising in the best way.
  1. Robocop
    As it should be.
  2. The Rock
    Adult action movies aka R-Rated ones are mostly dead, at least on a blockbuster scale. Michael Bay made one and it was a summer tentpole pic that was a critical and financial success.
  3. Armageddon
    There's a commentary track with an infamous line by Ben Affleck questioning the logic of the plot and apparently, Michael Bay just told him to shut the fuck up.
  4. Hard Boiled
    John Woo made two influential Hong Kong shoot 'em ups. This is one of them.
  5. The Killer
    This is the other.
  6. Boyhood
    A classic from the day you saw it.
  7. Pan's Labrynth
    An amazing and beautiful movie that becomes more amazing and more beautiful with each viewing.
  8. All That Jazz
  9. Dazed & Confused
    This is American neo-realism in the form of a stoner comedy that you can drop in at any point and still know what's going on, even though it plays against conventions.
  10. Chasing Amy
    Almost 20 years old, it holds a mirror to liberal white dudes and most of it still holds up and is probably more relevant than ever.
  11. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
    Forest Gump 2: Electric Boogaloo
  12. A Bunch of Wes Anderson movies
    Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Darjeeling Limited
