The Best Movies You've Never Heard Of

<< Back to Speaking Topics List

Astronaut220rWhat do “El Norte,” “The Astronaut
Farmer,” and “The Weather Man” have in common?

They are extremely engaging movies you may
never have heard of … until now.  And that's just the tip of the iceberg of cinematic gems that for one reason or another never attracted a mass audience following.

In this PowerPoint and film clip presentation lasting a little over an hour, we'll fill up your Netflix or movie channel "want to see" list with a dozen or more great movies you may have missed.

Here's what Movie Memories fan Sandra Barr emailed to us after enjoying the "Best Movies You've Never Heard Of" presentation:

Dear Larry,

I have seen you a few times in class
at Richland at the Emeritus Program. On one occasion you introduced us to the
Ten Best Movies You've Never Seen. One of those movies was the Astronaut
Farmer. I was finally able to get it to the top of my Netflix List and saw it
last week.

I don't remember the last time I cried and then laughed out loud and
then cried and laughed at the same time for as extended a period of time as I
did throughout The Astronaut Farmer. I thank you for introducing me to this
outstanding movie.

To think I might have missed it is incomprehensible! You
have done a very fine deed by making us aware of these movies that somehow
never made it to the front pages of the Entertainment Sections! Thank you so
much!

Sandra Barr

What, you're shocked?

Me, too.  I can remember when a half gallon of Blue Bell was $2.99, or on sale for 3-for-$5.  That's at least a dollar less than what they're getting for a pint now.  If my math is right, there are four pints in a half gallon.  Shouldn't a pint be about $2.25?  Of course not.  That would make too much sense, and, apparently, way too little cents.

What, that's not what shocked you?  Must be the Halloween candy.  The best bargain in town this week has to be leftover Halloween candy.  One of those giant gut-buster bags of bite-sized morsels such as BabyRuths, Whoppers, KitKats and Butterfingers, my personal favorite, are marked down to half-price now.  That means only 25 or 30 bucks a bag.
