A Few Movies You May Not Have Heard Of...

...But, You May Want To See.

Always happy to bring your attention to films that have caught the eyes of the Blog-o-Rama editorial staff, here are a few gems soon to be released that you may not have heard about.  Most of these are films that you will find only in theaters running art house films, although some definitely seem like they should be seen by more than a select few, such as our first film...


The Other Side of Paradise is a highly entertaining comedy about a girl named Rose who embarks on a journey of self-discovery on the way to her first gallery opening. Along the way, she picks up Alex, the newly single friend she’s always had feelings for, and her misfit younger brother Jamie, who recently was released from prison. On the road trip, the trio encounter off-the-wall characters and hilarious cameos that chew up the Texas countryside. In the end, the three must come to grips with their own issues of trust, abandonment, love, and ultimately hope.

Opens In Select Theaters On November 8, 2009
Up next we go from comedy to horror with...
The tagline for this film is: Love can be fleeting but its a memory that lasts a lifetime.  And that pretty much sums up this horror film, directed by Tyler Oliver and starring Carly Schroeder, Cody Linley, and Micah Alberti.
It's graduation weekend, and Sandy Channing, the popular class president of her small-town high school, should be enjoying the time of her life. But when her friends start disappearing, Sandy discovers they have unwittingly awakened the vengeful spirit of a girl they wronged long ago. Fighting for her sanity, Sandy must unlock a dark secret from her own past before it's too late.
Scaring It's Way Into Theaters On November 10, 2009
In the world of documentaries, we found what looks to be a profound film of how youth overcome the insipid boundaries of rascism promulgated by their parents in...
In 1997, Academy Award winning actor, Morgan Freeman, who lives in the Charleston, Mississippi community, offered to fund the first-ever integrated Senior Prom in the history of Charleston's one high school. His offer was ignored. In 2008, Morgan offered again... the East Tallahatchie County School Board accepted. In this town of 2,300 people, its high school of 415 black and white students has, to this day, always had separate proms: one black, one white prom. Our film follows the Charleston High senior class of 2008 preparing and attending their historic, first integrated prom, in the context of strong emotions, traditions, and conflict inherent in race relations in the community, and in the deep south. Some of the white parents maintained their whites-only prom.
Released on October 13, 2009
From documentary we go to our last film highlight in this post, which is a mockumentary on the highly competitive world of rock, paper, scissors in a film entitled...
The Flying Scissors is a feature-length mockumentary about the intense, grueling world of competitive "Rock, Paper, Scissors." The film delves into the lives and daily routines of a wide array of quirky characters who vie to be the best at this unorthodox sport. Each competitor must balance the nuances of their everyday life in hopes of becoming a "Rock, Paper, Scissors" champion.  The trailer is uproariously funny.

It opens on the same day as Disney's A CHRISTMAS CAROL, so this may be a perfect alternative to trying to crowd in past all the kiddies for a seat in the movie theater that weekend.
