Why?: Open Your Eyes is the Spanish sci-fi thriller movie that Vanilla Sky was based on. If you havent seen either watch this one to see what all the hype is about, and if you have already watched Vanilla Sky, watch Open Your Eyes because Penelope Cruz is sooo hot in it and there is no Cameron Diaz.

Recommended by Lindsay
Why?:  This is a great movie to catch for free because it works well on a rainy/lazy day. Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman in a taught dramatic thriller? You just can’t say no.

Charade (1963)
Recommended by Jess
Why?: Ahem,  Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn! This film is a fun and funny mystery that you will fall in love with. 

Recommended by Rob
Why?: This movie is endearing, sweet, and often hilarious. Watch it for a little offbeat fun and see if your not quoting lines by the end.

Recommended by Will
Why?: Master Stanley Kubrick gives us one of the funniest movies of all time. Dr. Strangelove becomes an instant classic.

Recommended by Lindsay
Why?: This one might not be for everyone, but it’s about a killer turkey, and well, that’s fucking awesome. It’s low budget and outrageous but infinitely quotable/hysterical if you give it the opportunity. 

Recommended by Jessica
Why?: Stranger Than Fiction is a slower pace for wild funnyman Will Ferrell but he is a perfect match in this really enjoyable comedy.

Recommended by Marc
Why?: Check out what all the gross, offensive B-movie fun is all about with The Toxic Avenger and Class of Nuke ’em High.
