As movie goers can see these days we live in a time that is being dominated by the comic book stories. Not only are these movies being made with 4-7+ titles a year, they’re actually huge blockbuster successes, for the most part anyways.

With that being said few can argue that Marvel is the top dog right now, with huge titles like Iron Man and Avengers dominating the box office, as well as other Marvel names like Spider-Man and the X-Men showing no sign of slowing down. For those who don’t know Spider-Man and X-men are Marvel creations, they’re not being made by Marvel Studios directly. Spider-Man is currently a Sony Picture property while the X-men and Fantastic Four belong to 20th Century Fox.

Title: The Virgin Suicides
Year: 1999
Whose In It?: Kirsten Dunst, James Woods, Kathleen Turner
What The Heck Is It?: Sofia Coppola’s debut venture into directing sees her take the helm of a dark satire featuring the Lisbon family. The family matriarch (Turner) is a woman of extraordinary faith, and the head of the house (Woods) is a teacher. All seems normal for the Lisbon’s and their five daughters. That is until the youngest Cecilia attempts to kill herself. It is this moment that sets the remainder of the film in motion.

Sometimes we watch a great film and we want to share it with all our friends, well friends I have fifty for you here! Fifty films you may not have seen yet, but you should. They run the gambit of decades, genres, and narratives! These are the films after which you’ll feel cool talking to your friends about, wanting them to share in this joke, or secret however you view the film. In some cases the film was just too obscure, or understated. Others just failed for some reason or another either way, they’re on our list! So enjoy!

Film Snob Reviews is run by two people. William, and of course Phoenix. We can both have the same taste in films, but then again, we both have found our differing opinions and have accepted each others’ “guilty pleasure films.” This will be our chance to give you a suggestion. Need a movie to rent this weekend? A movie night with some friends? A comfort movie after a breakup because that heart of yours is broken? No matter what the reason may be, these are all films that come from OUR suggestion boxes. Whether you watch them or not is up to you. Whether you like them or not, is something we won’t generally criticize, to each his own.

These are our Snob Suggestions…
