Nestadious's Staff Picks

Dark Days
A very moving and entertaining film about hum-bums living in a abandoned subway system, it's a great movie about down and out people still getting by and having a decent shelter to live in. Features a kick-ass soundtrack by DJ shadow.
Also recommended is the documentary on how they made the film, found in the special features.

From Beyond
A movie based on an H.P. Lovecraft story that actually retains the creepiness of a H.P. Lovecraft story. If you like weird horror movies, awesome special effects pre-CG era, then this little gem is a sure fire hit.

A fantastic cinematic experience that explores the beauty of Iceland combined with live Sigur Ros music. Follows the journey of Sigur Ros as they do a free tour across Iceland. Beautiful, moving music to the max.

Red Dawn
The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming! Awesome horribly hilarious movie about Russia/Cuba invading America. Watch as the 8 students calling themselves the Wolverines kick some commie ass! And starring top-notch stars such as Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen!

Treasure of the Sierra Madre
What is the one thing more powerful than love? Greed. In this classic movie starring all-time favorite Humphrey Bogart, 3 strangers hear about an untouched gold mine. There they fight off the horrible rebels, each other, and eventually themselves.

What happens when you mix one part epic storyline, 2 parts bad ass metal, and 1 part Seinfeld? Hilarity. Just a note: I hated metal music until I saw this show. I still hate metal music, but DETHKLOK RULES!!!!!!!!

National Geographic's Taboo series
Well, the title kind of explains the idea. Taboo is a series that covers such taboo subjects as:
Drugs, Voodoo, Marriage, Witchcraft, Sexuality, and much much more!

The Rockers
What do you get when you cross awesome Reggae music with a pretty standard plot? A pretty cool movie featuring Jamaican landscape with some Ire Vibrations. Featuring music by Burning Spear, Peter Tosh, Abyssinians, Bunny Wailer, Third World, Gregory Isaacs and Jacob Miller and the Inner Circle.
