In other words, what are your favorite movies that didn't make it big in the box office? Explain why you like these movies. A lot of time some fantastic movies and independent films don't get much recognition at the box office. A couple of my favorites are The Hours, because it had a very haunting story and showed how inter-connected our lives can be. Not to mention I've always liked the writing of Virginia Woolf. I also like The Station Agent which is an independent film and one of my favorite movies. It shows how this one person had a purpose in life even though he felt at first that he didn't. So, go ahead and share some of your favorites!

Unspeakable, Dusk til Dawn, Flight Plan, Cry Wolf, Darkman, Vampire Journals, Wolves of Wallstreet, Arachnia, Postman, Lost Voyage, and I am sure there are more just we have so many and yet not sure about how they did. You can see the type of movies that we like by this list.

I love the Hours too. My sleeper is Oscar. It is a comedy starring Sly Stallone. Yes a comedy. Maybe that is why it didn't do well at the box office.Stallone plays a gangter in the late 20's early 30's who is trying to go straight. It is a screwball comedy.And Sly is great in it.

I would say that Pan's Labyrinth didn't make it *huge* at the box office, but it won 3 Academy Awards. It is a spectacular film that is incredibly three dimensional and with beautiful cinematography.
