Movies you think are great but are underrated
The Big Lebowski.
Recently I discovered some great movies made by Darren Aronofsky. I strongly recommend you to watch those movies. You ‘ll not regret.
@nowscreamlouder, I agree, A Scanner Darkly is really good.
Death Proof is one of my favorite underrated movies, also Jackie Brown. Both Tarantino movies dwarfed by Pulp Fiction and Reservoir dogs.
In Bruges is an amazing movie that not enough people have seen, and O Brother, Where Art Thou?
I could go on forever but they are the main ones.
@rotsen, I really enjoyed those movies and I really didnt expect to. The screenplay is just so well written!
The Diving Bell and The Butterfly, Ashes and Snow, Waking Life, Mystic River, Nostalghia, Cinema Paradiso, Les Choristes
Se7en, the ending makes us question the weight of our actions. Like the old saying “you will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger,” the entire film sets up the idea that ultimately, our decisions themselves hold the consequences.
Plus it’s got Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, and the very wonderful Kevin Spacey. Check it out if you haven’t seen it.
Many great films already mentioned, add this to the list:
Plenty of good movies mentioned. I’ll just chuck in a couple of foreign films:
FYI full list of my favs: http://www.imdb.com/list/KkPQIsN5UdY/
I can’t believe no one has mentioned my favorite:
Lastly, Black Dynamite – very funny take on black-sploitation movies of the early 70′s
I am terrible at explaining movies so I’ll give the imbd link. this movie is good sober but I would love to watch it on acid.
anything by the coen brothers is fucking brilliant, amazing, and funny!
big lebowski and raising arizona were already mentioned.
burn after reading (brad pitt is hillarious! until he gets his dome popped by george clooney ;) )
Plus one of the greatest movies ever created was Twelve Angry Men!!
@jshmedler, Ah a real connoisseur! Twelve Angry Men all time favorit!
- North by Northwest
Actually everything that is not mainstream.
I really enjoyed The Man From Earth. I can’t say much because I’d spoil the story for you. The movie is pretty much a conversation between a group of friends about the life of one of them. It’s kind of psychological and would be good to watch while high.
I have came across this list lately: http://www.cinemablend.com/new/You-Missed-It-Most-Unfairly-Overlooked-Movies-Of-The-Decade-16012.html/
The thirteenth floor (1999)
Gattaca, definitely. Great movie that gives potential insight into the future but was received poorly in the box office and review-wise.
@rotsen, Have you seen Before Midnight yet?
That makes about 5 or so ( didn’t count) RICHARD LINKLATER films mentioned on this thread. I don’t think Slackers or Dazed and Confused are though.
I would say ‘My Dinner With Andre’….amazingly enjoyable movie which totally breaks away from your classic, expected film narrative. It’s also quite philosophical.
Loads of good ones mentioned. My fave has to be Oldboy. South Korean film about a guy imprisoned in a room with no explanation as to why. Finally after 15 years he is released and left to try and discover who locked him up and why. A dark, twisted vengeance film.
