If you like any of Orson Welles films then you should see this one. It's a really entertaining film-noir with an interesting ending.

Dracula (1958)


I actually prefer this one over the 1931 version.

This has three great stories based on Edgar Allen Poe stories for the price of one.

Very good movie about Helen Keller's early years.

It's cheesy as hell and it has dated special effects, but it's still really fun to watch.

Help! (1965)


Very goofy, but funny. If you like The Beatles then you will like this movie.

The Swimmer (1968)


This movie should've been a classic by now. It had everything it needed to be considered one.

A very unusual horror movie that lives up to it's title.

Very entertaining movie about a guy who thinks he's Sherlock Holmes. This is also the movie that the band They Might Be Giants got their name from.

Despite the fact that this movie won an Oscar and is in the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, I still think this movie belongs on the list because besides that I don't hear many people talk about this movie. This is a unique thriller with excellent performances from Donald Sutherland and Jane Fonda.

The Requiem for a Dream of the 70's.

This is the best disaster movie ever made. It has a great cast and like the title says, it truly is an adventure.

Coffy (1973)


This is possibly the best blaxplotation movie ever made.

Scarecrow (1973)


Can't go wrong with Gene Hackman and Al Pacino.

Vincent Price is very twisted in this one.

moviewatcher122's rating:


Dated, but it's entertaining and it's one of the earliest buddy cop movies in existence.

moviewatcher122's rating:
People who added this item 60 Average listal rating (38 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.1


Classic movie that portrays gambling addiction like no other movie has and James Caan is great as always.

moviewatcher122's rating:
People who added this item 75 Average listal rating (43 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 6.9


Another awesome blaxploitation movie with some great action scenes.

Even though I hate football, I still think this is a very well-made movie with an awesome performance from Burt Reynolds.
moviewatcher122's rating:


Cool Clint Eastwood movie with humor that is still funny to this day in my opinion.

moviewatcher122's rating:


Can't believe I saw the remake before I saw this one.
moviewatcher122's rating:


Gene Wilder's most underrated movie. If you found movies like Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles funny then you should give this movie a chance.

moviewatcher122's rating:
People who added this item 531 Average listal rating (365 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.4


Probably John Carpenter's best action film.

Silent Movie (1976)


A very funny movie about a film crew trying to make a silent film in the 70's. Hilarity ensues.

moviewatcher122's rating:
People who added this item 98 Average listal rating (55 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.3
The Front (1977)


Although it's more of a drama than a comedy, I still thought it was very good for it's time.

moviewatcher122's rating:

Very dark revenge movie, but it's a really good one and it's just really effective.

Hilarious movie written by the guys behind Airplane!

The Japanese know how to make weird movies.

This movie is pretty different compared to Richard Pryor's other movies. He can play 3 different characters very well in this movie.

People who added this item 145 Average listal rating (72 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.4
Straight Time (1978)


If you are a Dustin Hoffman fan, you owe it to yourself to see this movie. It is a brilliant character study film that has his most overlooked performance in his career.

moviewatcher122's rating:
People who added this item 38 Average listal rating (27 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.2


Really funny dark comedy with Burt Reynolds and Dom Deluise as the crazy mental patient. Burt Reynolds also does a good job behind the camera as well.

Coma (1978)


The screenplay for this movie was written by Michael Crichton and it shows especially near the second half of this movie. It's a really tense and suspenseful thriller with lots of interesting ideas and Michael Douglas has a supporting role in this movie and even back then he was just as good of an actor as he is now.

This movie has Gregory Peck as a Nazi and Laurence Olivier as a Nazi hunter. That's all you need to know.

Foul Play (1978)


Chevy Chase's first movie is a comedy-thriller that mixes humor and suspense very well.

Don't let the cheesy title fool you. This is a clever and funny Dracula spoof.

Wish Richard Pryor was in more good movies like this.

Bill Murray is very convincing as Hunter S. Thompson.

It's no The Deer Hunter, but it's still an underrated war movie and Christopher Walken is great as always.

It's far from Al Pacino's best movie, but it is a really well done movie that is still as shocking as it was back then.

Prom Night (1980)


Entertaining slasher which is better than credited for.

One of the best cop movies with a different performance from Paul Newman.

Death Hunt (1981)


It's Lee Marvin on a manhunt against Charles Bronson in the middle of snowy Canada and a movie with that just has to be good, right? Well this movie wouldn't be on this list if that wasn't the case.

Barry Levinson's directing debut is a good movie that is set in the 50's.

Tex (1982)


One of those movies that is just as good as the book it was adapted from.

The Toy (1982)


Richard Donner's most underrated and unfairly hated movie.

Strange Brew (1983)


While this movie is pretty well-known in Canada, I still think it's overlooked and it's probably one of the funniest movies to come from Canada.

Bad Boys (1983)


Really underrated prison movie with a great early performance from Sean Penn.

Brainstorm (1983)


Very good movie with a very interesting premise and a rare leading role for Christopher Walken.

Funny Steve Martin movie with entertaining gags.

Another good Steve Martin movie with funny gags.

A huge list of unseen gems that I think are good. While not all of these movies may be "great", but some of them are hence why great is in the title instead of good. As some of them are too good to be just labeled as good.
