Second Look: Smashed, Buffalo Soldiers, Killing Them Softly And More (Episode 3)


With so many films releasing each year, it’s impossible to catch them all. No matter how many movies you see, there are always a handful that manage to get by. You pledge to catch them at a later date, or maybe when they hit Blu-Ray, but we all know how it goes. You never get around to watching them and as more and more time passes, they get completely forgotten. It’s a shame, too, because there really are so many great movies that get overlooked each and every year and unfortunately, don’t achieve the mainstream success that they deserve.

Here at We Got This Covered, we’re hoping to remedy this problem by starting a new web show titled Second Look, where each week we’ll suggest several great movies that you might not have seen yet. On the last episode, we presented you with Haywire, The Bling Ring, You’re Next, Sound Of My Voice and Your Sister’s Sister. This week, we take a look at Smashed, Buffalo Soldiers, Shadow Dancer, Killing Them Softly and 25th Hour.

Like the last episode, all five films featured here come from various genres and are all quite different. From an underrated crime thriller with some strong political undertones to a searing drama featuring one of Ed Norton’s best performances, and everything in between, at least one of these overlooked gems should be up your alley and we do hope that you’re able to find something worth watching.

So, without further ado, we present to you the third episode of Second Look!
