    underrated movies

    In keeping with the movie theme,what are some movies that you feel are underrated.Here are a few of mine

    Copland (Stallone actually shows he can act)
    Millers Crossing (love the Coen bro's)
    Quick Change(Bill Murray comedy from the 90's)
    Phantasm (overlooked when it comes to classic horror movies)
    Rounders(just watched it again)-Teddy KGB

    One of the most insane fight sequences ever.

    Joe the King (not many movies choke me up, but this one gets me every time).

    Euro Trip and Sex Drive (two straight-to-cable comedies that I found infinitely funnier and more entertaining than over-hyped snoozefests like Hot Tub Time Machine, Knocked Up, etc.).

    The Substitute (just as entertaining on the 12th viewing as on the first; career performances by Ernie Hudson, Tom Berenger and Marc Anthony ).

    "I've come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum."

    Hahaha. Best line ever.




    For me, it's Starship Troopers.

    I watched it again on TV the other night for the millionth time. It is so beyond stupid that it's brilliant. Dina Meyer is an "F-Puppet".

    LOL. All that's missing is the crowd chanting for a "defeated" Hulkster to "come back to life" and vanquish his opponent.

    Another really under-appreciated flick is Bread and Chocolate. It's one of my favorite movies in any genre.

    Barry Lyndon
    The Man Who Wasn't There
    The Return (2003)
    Before The Devil Knows You're Dead
    Top Secret

    just 5 of hundreds..

    I think even Amadeus, while well known, is not appreciated well - the movie is absolutely perfect, can't change anything to make it better.

A bit dated, but still a classic peter Sellers performance. Britt Ekland, as Gina Romantica (LOL!) isn't too bad on the eyes, either.

    Phenomenally funny flick. The songs are particularly hysterical. Also, who knew Jenna Fisher had such an insane body?

    This one kills me every time:

    I'm a major fan of the late Robert Altman's work. I think The Player is brilliant, especially his eight minute opening tracking shot.

    +1 on Mr. Brooks.

    GREAT movie, really surprising role from Costner, and William Hurt plays his part perfectly. even Dane Cook is good in this movie, and that's saying a lot.

    haven't seen Slevin and didn't particularly care for The Kingdom, but Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is awesome. one of Val Kilmer's best roles ever.


    speaking of Val Kilmer, i've always liked 'The Ghost and the Darkness'
