    best robin williams quote EVER!

    "It's a cock! It's not a rocket, you sick fuck! It's a cock! Look. It's a cock and balls! A dick! Chorizo and the huevos! It's a big stiffy! It's a penis! Penis maximus! A willie! A weenie! Mr. Jiggle Daddy! The one-eyed wonder weasel! Don't you see that? It's Jimmy and the twins. Rumple Foreskin."

    ohh man. i thought unbreakable was total fucking shit, i was really excited for it, i mean a movie about comic books with bruce willis and samuel l jackson...but to me that followed by signs and the village just proved to me the sixth sense was a wonderful accident. i have only seen them once though...but i hated them both sooo much i doubt my opinion would change.

    death to smoochy is the shhhhhhit.

    also lgm i dont understand why so much hate for requiem and candy. i mean im no heroin addict but i think they both do a good job of showing the loss and desperate sacrifices associated with addiction. i mean as far as film quality/storyline of heroin movies i would say trainspotting>requiem>candy...but i dont see why you shit yourself over trainspotting and think the other 2 suck? they both have excellent performances in my opinion.

    Requiem is all visual style, and that's it. There's no characters or plot to speak of. Also, their pupils dilate. That is incorrect. I don't understand why in the hell they did that the opposite of what actually happens.

    Requiem is overrated if anything and LGM nailed it all style no real substance.

    Sara Goldfarb is a character. You see as far into her psyche as any recent movie character I can think of.

    seriously. i remember staying at my parent's last christmas and letting my dad watch requiem. i woke up christmas music to that unforgettable music at the end and walked out to the living room to see my dad in total shock at the movie. he was really impressed with her too.

    i wouldn't say it's underrated, most people i know enjoyed this movie. but it's definitely not overrated. i'm not saying it's the best movie that was ever made, but man, that movie shows some very realistic drug addicts. those were interesting characters and the movie had a plot i could enjoy. jennifer connolly hasn't done anything as an adult that even compares to her role in this movie. as a young woman who has been in a relationship with an addict and who has done drugs herself (but never gone ass to ass or anything, lol), i was able to relate and feel for her and harry's relationship.

    and maybe it's because i never heard of it before catching it on cable recently, but stalag 17 is definitely underrated. great movie that deserves more recognition.

    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.

    Hell yes to I <3 Huckabees!!!

    And a lot of Luc Besson productions are under-rated:

    Big Blue
    Nikita
    Leon
    B13
    Danny the Dog

    Good calls.

    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.

    Run Lola Run is not UNDERrated at all. When it came it was the darling foreign film, everyone who wanted to look like they were into film named this one. It is very gimicky, I personally think it is overrated.

    I can't stand Eyes Wide Shut. I think it is absoulutley horrible, talk about a movie with no moving characters or plot.

    Oldboy is not underrated. It is a great film & many people have acknowledged that. Some may say it is overrated, but not me. Love this flick.

    Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance is the underrated, superior film, 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.

    I didn't like Sympthy as much as old boy, it was still good though. I still have to watch Mrs. Vengence to finish the vengence trilogy.

    She clearly lost with reality before her addiction took hold. She believes her son has gone straight. She sits in her room isolated from the world, except the crazy bastard on TV, and when she gets the chance to join him in the TV she can't wait. She is a very tragic charcter to me at least.
