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

Movie Memories Update

Can you hear me now? Yes, indeedy

My heartfelt thanks go out to legendary San Antonio-based radio personality and good friend Sonny Melendrez, the nicest guy I know and one of the finest keynote speakers in the U.S., for having me on his radio show Sunday morning.

I had the honor of serving as sidekick and movie guy on Sonny's top-rated San Antonio radio show a few years back. Now Sonny is back on the air with the all new "Sonny Melendrez Show" Sundays at 11 a.m. on San Antonio's 930 AM The Answer.  You can listen live by going to the station's website.

Sonny and I had a great time on his new show Sunday morning.  It was like old times, but fresh and new.

What, you missed it?  What if I said you didn't, not really?

Sonny, always on the cutting edge of radio and technology, archives his weekly shows as podcasts.  If you're in the mood to have some fun and find out how yours truly slowly morphed from a shy guy afraid to even raise his hand in class in high school to a nationally known film critic, public speaker and comedian, click on this link to hear the podcast.
