Oh... Hard one. Probably Witness, Indiana Jones, and Avengers.
But then there's my love for Disney movies both live action and animated...

That is the only musical I consider good. I went to a live showing that was a duet with Rocky Horror. I am a pretty straight laced guy, so it was fairly uncomfortable at first, but it ended up being a lot of fun. It was nice to go outside my comfort zone.

He used to tell me stories about his family in England and growing up. Red hair runs through the Lawrence family history.

He was indeed an interesting man over a cup of tea and bisquits.

Try to add some maybe not mentioned yet...

HORROR
WARNING: Content below might be disturbing ....


Cannibal Holocaust (1980): A proper story based film about a classic 70's era "Mondo" style shock documentary film crew goes looking for the cannibals of the Amazon... or is it fiction???

House of 1000 Corpses (2003) also qualifies as a "surreal" film, although its sequel does not:
The Devil's Rejects (2005): IN this one Robb brought on a famed documentary filmaker as director of cinematography.

Grindhouse (2007) was a special film project by Rob Rodriguez & Quentin Tarantino (2 avid 70's era film buffs). They wanted their 2 in one film replicate the old 70's era campy "grindhouse" theater experience, but this time it's all big budget production style! Grindhouses were theaters that played the wild B "Exploitation" flicks of the era. Exploitation flicks were always B films, so where to compensate for the low budget they'd "exploit" certain elements, er go over the top with things like sex, gore and comedy (the gore often being part of the comedic element). Beyond that the scene also had numerous different themes that were commonly exploited to drive up the extreme / entertainment (such as Blaxploitation, Nunsploitation, Naziploitation, Sexploitation [the porn of this era played in these theaters i.e. "Dirk Diggler"]).

Although critics somehow didn't connect with or appreciate their creative effort, in Grindhouse, the film they each made for it (Planet Terror & Death Proof) are each good standalone films (not their best but good), it was the total experience that should have been scored (when it was at theaters). The whole start to finish package was enough to run a drive in theater for the night, where it even included FAKE TRAILERS! Trailers for exploitation films where often the best part, all the crazy scenes smashed together typically with over the top narratives, which made for some fun for the many people that submitted fake trailers in the SXSW contest they had (which can be seen in youtube). The fake trailers were never released in the DVD/Bluray releases I ever heard about, so only the people that wwent to the theater got to see them in proper quality, but you can still see them in youtube:


Dawn of the Dead (1978) is the best zombie movie there ever was, or ever will be. That version there must be the theatrical release, as the proper versions are all much longer.

Poltergeist (1982): still one of the best! Modern big budget horror movies just dont catch this kind of authenticity!

The Shining (1980), of course!

The ABC's of Death (2010): This is a neat film / concept brought to you by Magnet Releases (a cool little indie film house doing many new releases each year). "The ABCs of Death is a 2012 independent anthology horror comedy film produced by international producers and directed by filmmakers from around the world. The film contains 26 different shorts, each by different directors spanning fifteen countries."

Creepshow (1982)!!! One of my other childhood favorites. In the Grindhouse fake trailers piece above, one the of the fake trailers used the OST from Creepshow, and it was bomb! Steven King! I'd like to honorably mention Pet Cemetery (and IT) as well. Loved that cat!

Evil Dead (1981) the one and only!

[EDITed out the trailer, someone already posted it above]
Last but not least, Videodrome (1983) is an old goodie I'll bet not too many of you have heard of. TV starts warping everybody's brains... a true story?!?!

The Texas Chain Saw films belong here too, but I better not embed anything else. I like part one of both runs of the film (R Lee Ermy in the first reboot was too perfect for that role lol!

Was surprised how many above are full length films up in youtube!
