Absolut, by the dictionary definition of "underrated", every single movie in the history of man is underrated, because you can find at least a handful of people that will consider any movie you can think of to be underrated. That's not the practical meaning of the word.
If that's your argument, then let's just post the IMDB top 250 movies list in here.
I also never indicated that sales are a reflection of quality or importance, both of which are not directly related to whether a film is underrated or overrated. (I actually said they were subjective, so basically, the opposite of your assertion.) A horrible film can be underrated, or overrated.
I agree that awards are arbitrary, but what other criteria do you insist should be used, then; or is your argument that anything/everything can be underrated and/or overrated, and therefore, anything can make the list?
I maintain that the commonplace meaning of the word is not strictly its dictionary definition. Hell, Merriam-Webster lists the first meaning of the word "gay" as "a : happily excited : merry <in a gay mood>", but let's be real; the vast majority of English-speaking people think of an entirely different definition when someone uses that word, don't they?
Rams bet status: honored. Bradford still sucks.
RedAlice is right.
