    Default Most Underrated Movie

    I wanted to make this a poll, but the list I was compiling in my head become more "movies I really like that no one else seems to give a fuck about" but yeaaaah...

    I should clarify that by underrated I don't mean not well-received, or not critically acclaimed, I mostly mean a film that is fucking awesome but most people don't appreciate it, because it is too complex/abstract/whatever. I feel like these are the kinds of movies that people who do like them absolutely LOVE, and everyone else is ambivalent, or hates....

    may I propose:
    Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man


    Gus van Sant's My Own Private Idaho


    and Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.


    Thoughts? ohhh and hopefully suggestions of most excellent movies that I have never heard of...

    Life Aquatic is for sure on my top movies list, anything with bill murray, dafoe, wes, seu jorge singing bowie, psychedelic colors, and what I consider marvelous cinematography is top notch in my book.

    The scene towards the end with the jaguar shark and staralfur, I almost fucking died it was so epically magical.

    there are so many moments that are just very, very funny, and some that are beautifully sad, Murray did a terrific job

    this movie is probably on the top of my "underrated list"



    seriously guys, if you havent seen it, don't judge it by the poster, the script is deliciously witty and the ensemble cast is knockout, we have tim curry (yay!), christopher lloyd, martin mull, michael mckean, madeline kahn, leslie ann warren, god this movie is so funny

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a masterpiece. There. I said it. I know some of you will agree. I really don't think it should be here though cause It's not that underated like the other two you posted.

    On the other hand, years ago when Tom Cruise was totally acceptable and Cameron Crowe did his thing, I think this movie was amazing (and I know everyone is going to say the original is much better, but I happen to like both of them because they are visually so different).

    ehh I didnt really prefer abre los ojos, the ending seemed much more contrived to me. and though tom cruise is well tom cruise, he is undeniably an amazing actor. his performance in VS is stellar.

    this is one of the funniest moments in cinematic history

    haha That might be one of the weirdest moments too.
    What made the movie so special to me was not only it was visually stunning, but the soundtrack is amazing also. Cameron Crowe is the man.

    well she's no prize actress, but I thought she was damn sexxxy.

    requiem is underrated because people dont like to be made sad, in a similar vain, Candy, its hard to say which movie kills me more...I just watched candy a few weeks ago, and I haven't seen requiem for a year or so..



    on a lighter note, SURVIVE STYLE FIVE PLUS!!!!!, I've never met anyone who has seen this movie, but everyone I make watch it loves it. It's brilliant...

    I own this flick & i agree with you. Even my old roommate, who used to gasp when he'd come in to find me watching an asian movie, sat down in the middle of this one & was laughing his ass off. Bird dad! hahaha

    MONDAY & Unlucky Monkey are other exceptional japanese pics that not many people have seen.

    I'm not sure how we're defining "underrated movies" here. Are they ones that critics didn't like that many people love, ones that many people have seen but didn't like or ones that not many people have seen but were warmly received by critics.

    Either way, I'm going to throw Luc Besson's LE GRAND BLEU into the ring




    as well as, I HEART HUCKABEES




    MADE deserves a mention too.

    Not a big fan of Danny the Dog, though I've only seen it as Unleashed. is there any difference?

    B13 is great. I'm also a sucker for the TAXI movies (not the American one)


    oh, and also, his most recent "Angel-A", was quite underrated, imo.

    I don't think that there was much of a difference, they just changed the name for American audiences so that it sounded more action-y. I hated the way that Leon had the soul sucked out of it and was turned into The Professional for American audiences.

    Haven't even heard of Angel-A but I will def be checking it out.
