Some greats already mentioned on this thread. Not sure these were covered though.

The Late Show (1977 - Art Carney/Lily Tomlin) - great homage to the potboiler Bogart detective films of the 40's. Not on Blu yet.

Big Wednesday (1978 - Jan Michael Vincent/Gary Busey) - John Milius' surfing opus and a real snapshot of what it was like growing up in Southern California during the Vietnam era. Some great surfing footage. Shame it's not on Blu yet.

Twilight's Last Gleaming (1977 - Burt Lancaster) - little seen film in the vein of Fail Safe, Seven Days in May, etc. On Blu from Olive Films.

It's just a coincidence that all three of these were made within a year of each other.

There are a lot of European (often non-English) films that are not very well known even in their own country but are nevertheless very good or better.

I can personally think of 3 such films

1. Blow Hot, Blow Cold aka Violenza al Sole (1968) directed by Florestano Vancini

2. Onkel Toms Hutte (the full 143 minute version) aka Uncle Toms Cabin (1965) directed by Geza von Radvanyi

3. Escapade in Russia aka Girl Seeks Father aka Devochynka Ishchet Otsa (1959) Directed by Lev Golub

A blast to watch, Shaw and Jones made a great team and the movie had a fantastic score by John Addison. Shout Factory needs to get ahold of this one.
Hear hear! One of my favorite pirate movies, and my love for Robert Shaw is undying. The one thing that bothers me about it is the super fluffy Little House on the Prairie style orchestral score. I firmly believe that if it weren't for that, it would have been a greater box office success, and better remembered today. Still tons of fun though.

Is Swashbuckler aka The Red Pirate? I recall seeing a pirate film with Robert Shaw and Genevieve Bujold where the latter jumps into the sea in the nude. There is also a little song by the Shaw character about a Quaker wife.

That is it. I didn't know about the alternate title. Genevieve is fierce and hot in this one, if you're a fan.

The Low Down (2000) directed by the incredibly underrated Jamie Thraves and starring the equally underrated Aidan Gillen. It's excellent almost anti-coming of age and it's cerebral, too.

Vampires Kiss starring Nic Cage and Jennifer Beals. Crazy movie!

Big Wednesday starring Gary Busey, William Katt and Jan Michael Vincent. Coming of age movie, set around the surfing community.

Some Kind of Wonderful. Teen movie starring Eric Stolz, Mary Stuart Masterson and Lea Thompson

Well, this is a bizarre list.

A Reflection of Fear (truly creepy psychodrama with Robert Shaw, Sally Kellerman & Sondra Locke)
Paris Trout (disturbing picture featuring Dennis Hopper's greatest performance)
Arizona Dream (Kusturica comedy with Johnny Depp & Faye Dunaway; the dinner scene is the funniest scene ever filmed)
Shoot the Moon (barring the ill-advised restaurant scene, a perfect portrait of a marriage gone awry; featuring Diane Keaton & Albert Finney)
Confessions (hugely entertaining & twisted Japanese revenge thriller)
Will You Love Me Tomorrow (moving BBC production inspired by the Mary Bell case)
Firstborn (confused but entertaining drama with Teri Garr & Peter Weller)
Dark Obsession (aka Diamond Skulls; starring Amanda Donohoe & Gabriel Byrne)
Where the Money Is (low-key heist comedy with fantastic chemistry between Paul Newman & Linda Fiorentino)
That Cold Day in the Park (love that Sandy Dennis, even as a nut; fine early Altman)
In the Spirit (New Age comedy with Elaine May & Marlo Thomas)
Another Happy Day (superb performance from Ellen Barkin)
Electric Dreams (80s schlock with the underrated Lenny Von Dohlen)
The Disappearance of Aimee (TV movie with Bette Davis and Faye Dunaway)
The Supernaturals (bad 80s horror flick with a dynamite cast: Nichelle Nichols! Maxwell Caulfield! Levar Burton! Maurice Gibb!)
This World, Then the Fireworks (Billy Zane, Gina Gershon & Sheryl Lee in a trashy Jim Thompson adaptation)
The Bad Seed (TV adaptation with Blair Brown that remains faithful to the novel)
Scream for Help (Michael Winner cheese that he never managed to top)
Crimes of Passion (Ken Russell's funniest picture)
A Dangerous Woman (underrated melodrama starring Debra Winger & Barbara Hershey)
Razorback (beautiful Gregory Harrison vs. a killer pig)
Storyville (James Spader in a Mark Frost-directed Southern thriller)
Nightmare on the Thirteenth Floor (TV horror with a great B-list cast and a surprisingly bleak ending)
The Trigger Effect (plays like an extended Twilight Zone episode with Elisabeth Shue & Kyle MacLachlan)
Compromising Positions (comic mystery with great chemistry between Raul Julia & Susan Sarandon)
The Applegates (Stockard Channing & Ed Begley Jr. as bugs, Dabney Coleman in drag)
The Cannon Movie Tales (starry productions of fairy tales shot in Israel; Hansel & Gretel with Cloris Leachman being the best of the lot)
Dying Room Only (another Cloris Leachman goody)
The Boneyard (Norman Fell & Phyllis Diller vs. zombies)
Home for the Holidays (Aaron Spelling slasher starring Sally Field, Jessica Walter & Julie Harris)
Mother Goose Rock 'n Rhyme (a truly wacky Shelley Duvall production; man, she was great)
Playroom (insane B-horror written by Jackie Earle Haley)
The Caller (strange Malcolm McDowell fare with an interesting yet unsuccessful finale)
Baxter (French comedy about a killer dog, from the point of view of said dog)

Thanks for the recommendation - I'm a big fan of Aidan Gillen, based on his roles in The Wire & Game of Thrones (two amazing shows), so have a lot of interest in seeing The Low Down. Unfortunately, this film seems tough to get ahold of....

Also agree that The Late Show (Art Carney/Lily Tomlin) is an amazing movie.

That Cold Day in the Park (late 1960's?!) is one of my favorite Robert Altman films; I even prefer it to some of his later, more popular work...

Here are some underrated, somewhat obscure films I'd recommend:

Straight Time - 1970's crime drama starring Dustin Hoffman & Gary Busey; extremely well-done.

The Border - another great drama, starring Jack Nicholson & Harvey Keitel.

The Pledge (2001) - disturbing & thought-provoking Jack Nicholson thriller...

Scarecrow (1973) - not the horror movie, but a decent drama starring Al Pacino & Gene Hackman as a pair of drifters.

The Thirteenth Floor - excellent 1990's sci-fi film that capitalized on the interest in "virtual reality" at the time...

Looking for Mr. Goodbar - though I'm sure a lot of folks have heard about this film, I'm not sure how many have actually seen this due to it's current unavailability on home video (except for VHS & Laserdisc?!) - it's never been released to DVD or Blu, possibly because of rights issues involving the music?!..In any case, excellent '70's drama, & based on a true story. One of Diane Keaton's best movies...

The Comfort of Strangers (199?) - disturbing & at the same time low-key film about a British couple vacationing in Italy, directed by Paul Schrader....based on the equally disturbing novel. This film deserves a better release that it's gotten, since all of the versions I've seen have been pan & scan, with sub-par PQ...

Forever Mine (1999) - another great Paul Schrader drama, starring the beautiful & underrated Gretchen Mol.

Busting

Really solid cop flick with Elliot Gould and Robert Blake from the underrated Peter Hyams. Has a great bloody shoot out scene towards the end too, if I remember correctly.
