The Ninja Captain's Underrated Treasures Blogfest!
You're so hard on us!
This is a thinkin' blogfest.
And now, my brain hurts. :(
But, in a good way! :)
Everyone has a favorite movie or band that no one else has ever heard about. For whatever reason, they remain undiscovered and underrated. Now is your chance to tell the world about this obscure treasure!
Today, September 22, post about your favorite unknown –
MOVIE – BAND/ARTIST – TV SHOW – BOOK
Post about one or all four – dealer’s choice!
Here we go!
MOVIE - Zorro, The Gay Blade (1981)
In 1840's Mexico, wealthy landowner Don Diego Vega learns of his late father's secret as Zorro, the masked folk hero, and Vega adopts his new persona. But when Vega is incapacitated by an injury, he asks Ramon, his very gay, long-lost twin brother (now calling himself 'Bunny'), to replace him as the caped hero, who makes some drastic changes to his Zorro persona.
This is one of my favorite movies growing up and these days, no one's even heard of it. I quote lines from this movie to my family all the time. Even watching it now, I would be cracking up because the cast is so brilliant.
It's worth the watch.
BAND/ARTIST - So...honestly, I racked my brain and couldn't come up with any band/artists that I'm listening to that the whole world isn't listening to.
My current favorite is Thirty Seconds to Mars.
They're certainly not underrated.
TV SHOW - Arrow (2012)
After having being lost at sea and presumed dead, the spoiled son of a millionaire returns to cleanse his hometown from crime as a vigilante with superhuman capabilities.
I know this show is gaining immense popularity, mostly due to the lead actor, Stephen Amell (who is AWESOME), but it can't hurt to give it a little push. Strong characters. Good story. AMAZING action scenes. Lots of tension ... of all kinds. Family drama. Flashbacks extraordinaire. Bare Naked Man Chests. This show has it all.
And, its only getting better.
It's also going to have its first spin-off. The Flash begins this fall.
True, Alex, it's not exactly Blood, Boobs and Carnage. (2 out of 3 ain't bad) But, it's close. :)
BOOK - There are a million books that are completely underrated treasures. I've got a whole list of them on the Pay It Forward book list. Go check them out! Feel free to add a few of your own!
Thank you, Alex, for throwing another great Blogfest party!
