Spaghetti Westerns are loosely defined as low-budget Western films made by a European, especially an Italian, film company.
- Captain Apache (1971) Starring Lee Van Cleef without his signature moustache and featuring a groovy theme.
- Billy the Kid vs. Dracula (1966) Not nearly as unwatchable as you may have heard... begging for a big studio remake.
- A Bullet for the General (1966) Starring two of my very favorite Spaghetti Western legends, Gian Maria Volonté and Klaus Kinski.
- Django (1966) The original starring Franco Nero and directed by Sergio Corbucci.
- Django Unchained (2012)
- Death Rides A Horse (1967) Starring Lee Van Cleef in full bad-a** mode. Nuff Said.
- Djano, Kill (1967) The official "sequel" to 1966's Django without any of the creative forces behind the original, and a protagonist who is never called "Django." Despite these inconsistencies, it does star Tomas Milian, and is a trippy Spaghetti Western worth viewing.
- Four Rode Out (1970) A terrible genre movie with little redeeming value--truth is, I couldn't watch the whole thing.
- God's Gun (1976) Starring Lee Van Cleef (with his moustache restored) as twins, Jack Palance and Leif Garret.
- If You Meet Sartana Pray for Your Death (1968) Starring Gianni Garko (think a stiffer Franco Nero) and Klaus Kinski.
- Keoma the Avenger (1976) Starring Franco Nero and William Berger.
- Navajo Joe (1966) Starring a very young Burt Reynolds without his signature mustache.
- Run, Man, Run (1968) Starring Tomas Milian.
- They Call Him Cemetery (1971) Starring Gianni Garko and American actor William Berger.
Kaiju is a Japanese word that literally translates to "strange creature." Kaiju films usually showcase monsters of any form attacking a major Japanese city or engaging another (or multiple) monsters in battle.
- Gamera: The Giant Monster (1965)
- Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (1994)
- The Valley of Gwangi (1969) Starring Ray Harryhausen's creatures, with visuals that clearly inspired some of Spielberg's Jurassic Park: The Lost World.
A documentary film is a nonfictional motion picture intended to document some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction or maintaining a historical record.
Other Cool Stuff
- Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Secret Flame (2010) A Chinese historical mystery directed by Hark Tsui with subtitles: a visually sumptuous and entertaining film experience featuring a charismatic performance by Andy Lau in the lead role.
- Detective Dee: The Rise of the Sea Dragon (2013) A prequel to Mystery of the Secret Flame once gain directed by Hark Tsui.
- Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012) A very expensive (and thoroughly entertaining) B-movie. Secret: if it's a "comic book movie", don't go into the experience expecting Shakespeare.
- Grabbers (2012) Cthulhu-esque horror.
- In the Mouth of Madness (1995) Cthulhu-esque horror by genre master John Carpenter.
- John Carter (2012)
- The Lair of the White Worm (1988)
- The Lone Ranger (1956) Starring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels, two were very under appreciated actors whose work in these roles is timeless.
- Painted Skin 2: Resurrection (2012)
- The Road (2009) Based on the novel of the same name; starring Viggo Mortensen. Depressing, stylistic and haunting.
- Smoke (1995)
- Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam (2010)
- Vengeance (2009)
