About

Digging deep into cinema history…these are the films forgotten by time.  The ones you won’t find in that red refrigerator they have in the McDonalds parking lot.  Welcome to the world of Forgotten Films.

Now, truth be told, there’s no such thing as a “forgotten film.”  Every movie out there has its fans, or even just people have the experience of watching it tucked back in a cobweb covered corner of their brain.  I just try to do my part to dust off some of those cobwebs.

I’m no great expert on film…I just love watching movies and talking to others about movies. My reviews tend to be short and sweet…after all, the whole point of movies is that YOU watch them. I just hope my reviews interest you enough to check out the films for yourself…both the good ones and the bad ones. And when you do check these films out, please comment and make me feel like someone out there likes me. I’m insecure, what can I say.

  1. Congratulations Forgotten Films! Your blog wins one of Cineroulade’s five inaugural 2012 “Double-Plus Fantabulous” Awards for blogging. You get a gold star, a wink, & a link! Keep up the good work!

  2. I’m glad I stumbled on this site. I, too, am a fan of little-known films and stuff that isn’t your mainstream blockbuster fare. Congrats on having such an awesome topic, and awesome site!

        • I would disagree. The great majority of the films I review are streaming on Netflix. I admit, their selection of new releases on streaming is not huge…but that’s not what I’m looking for either.

          Netflix, Legal uploads on YouTube, and my local library are my main places to go for movies.

          • When I say Netflix’s selection, I am referring to their streaming selection. I’m not going to take the time to try to remember all the times they didn’t have the movie I wanted, but a recent example was Errol Morris’s Tabloid. I guess I may be too demanding wanting them to have every movie I want. It sounds like for you they are just one of many sources that combine to give you the selection you want. If you do it that way, it can be a great resource. Either way, Fandor has a plethora of movies Netflix doesn’t, so definitely a nice add to the mix if you are like me and lazy to go hunt down physical copies of movies at the library. Perhaps the best option for online viewing is to have both.

    • Hmmm, I don’t if I’d consider “Benji” to be forgotten. Probably because I still have such vivid memories associated with that name. However, I might consider one of the follow-ups, like “Oh Heavenly Dog” which stared Benji with Chevy Chase.
