I know Bill Murray said it's the best script he has ever read.

To bad about Phenomenon cause I thought it was a wonderful explaination of how people would really act when confronted with something they didn't understand. Big names? Travolta, Forrest Whitiker. Robert Duvall, Kyra Sedgwick.

Now I truly dislike Kyra Sedgwick but she was really great in that show. Yes that means I didn't like The Closer. I rarely will continue watching a program that spends more time on the characters personal lives/problems.

Star Trek 2: Wrath of Khan

I know its popular movie, but from a film making point of view, I really think the screenwriting (theme, story arc, dialog, and characters) is really underrated, (because of its sci-fi genre).

Its a tight script and a solid movie from start to finish, which is why its so memorable among fans. It has more quotable moments than all the other Trek films combined. It almost single handily made the Trek movie franchise, and they have been trying to copy aspects of this film of it ever since.



BTW, the same could be said of the original Karate Kid.

Great movie and the soundtrack was AMAZING......and I am about as far from a Neil Young fan as you can possibly be. Plus Gibby Haynes and Iggy Pop have cameos!

I think you're overstating a bit. There was lots of flash about this show and it was one of the most popular of the "Kirk" movies. And boy wasn't that Savik something in those early days??

Love that movie.

You know what pisses me off? There were no more Remo Williams movies, EVEN THOUGH IT CLEARLY STATES "The Adventure Begins". I was so amped for a string of really bad, cold war propaganda, B-rate action films.

No one's mentioned Big Trouble Little China yet?

Wall-E and Apocolypto stand as the two best films made in a decade, IMO.

Hurt Locker's up there. Gone Baby Gone can never have enough said about it.

Hurt Locker won Best Picture at the Oscars. I think that disqualifies it as underrated.

Gone Baby Gone I agree with 100%. Wall-E was great.

Yeah, but Hurt Locker was also the lowest grossing Best Picture nom or winner of all-time. It's underrated, IMO.

So, yeah Zeb, what now?

I thought about BTILC, but I'm not sure it's really overrated. I don't know of anyone who doesn't love it.

Both. Ghost world is a fantastic movie. Thora Birch can't act, but it kinda works in this one. Buscemi - as usual - hold the entire thing together.

Damn straight on Birch NOT being an actress. But, it fit the role so well, it was perfect. I'm too lazy to look it up, but whom ever directed that deserves props.

Don't worry, Zeb; Pehawk's wrong. Hurt Locker's not underrated. Unless Pehawk doesn't know the definition of the word. However, half the people in this thread have mentioned at least one film that is way too popular to be underrated, so...

When it won, it's all anybody could talk about. Maybe it's the most underrated Best Picture winner of all time, but as far as being a good movie, it got the accolades it deserved.

Awfully hard to call a movie that won an oscar for best picture underrated but: The Departed.

Great, great, great movie, imo. And unlike a lot of great movie's its also really entertaining. I dont think it gets enough love from movie fans as it deserves. Should be right up there with the all time greats.

I know its appreciated, but it should be one of the all time classics, which makes it underrated.

I don't know, do you consider a Pagani Zonda sports car underrated because only a handful of people own one compared to 911 Turbos or Ferraris? Sales aren't really related to whether something is underrated or overrated, it's about how many people know about it and like it/think it's great.

Not even close to being a fair comparison, Roland. First of all, the Zonda was limited production. It would be the equivalent of Hurt Locker only being shown in like 100 theaters nationwide. Also, the Zonda is a lot more costly than a 911 turbo and a lot of Ferarris. Make an apples to apples comparison next time, arsebag.

Oh, for Christ's sake; then Rolls Royces compared to 911s, whatever.

<random easily available but super expensive sports car that sells far fewer models each year than Porsche does>

Does that work for you? Also, no need to resort to name-calling in the lounge.

Also, price was also an intentional point. Porsche brings in a ton more money than Pagani does as a company. How about Lotus, then? Cheaper cars AND way less annual income for the company than Porsche. Similar to the way less viewers/money angle Pe brought up for Hurt Locker.

Jesus.

Why are they arguing over criteria?
Movies are (literally) in the eyes of the beholder.

Last Action Hero. (Arnold Schwarzenegger, campy action-comedy that I really enjoy.)

Def one of my favorites.

The Long Kiss Goodnight (Geena Davis)
Top Secret (Val Kilmer)
The Score (Ed Norton, Robert DeNiro)
The Professional (Jean Reno)
Ronin (Robert DeNiro, Jean Reno)


Yes! Top Secret! There's a lot of people out there who don't know that movie. That's a classic! One of my favorite comedies.

Neek!!!

Most people haven't seen Dead Man, and it's a damn shame.


Great movie and the soundtrack was AMAZING......and I am about as far from a Neil Young fan as you can possibly be. Plus Gibby Haynes and Iggy Pop have cameos!


The scene with Billy Bob Thornton talking about the sun going out cracked me up. And if we're talking about Jarmusch, how about Broken Flowers?

Life of Pi. Even though Ang won best director, this movie was underhyped and is a very enjoyable movie.
