Because it's hard to dethrone a movie that's been in that spot for the last 13 years. Yes, I'm talking about Shawshank Redemption. But you're fucking high for even thinking Inception is underrated in any way. If anything, it's overrated for getting so much praise. Don't get me wrong, I loved the movie, but it's just not #1 material.
Out of all the movies I've watched so far (including at least half of the ones in the Top 250), Inception is the only one that struck me as perfect. There was just nothing out of place, not plotwise, nor in any other aspect of the making. Everything looked great. The actors synced, the effects looked real, the script seemed to naturally weave in all the questions you might wonder when watching, and the music... that's probably one of my favorite soundtracks as well. Even the fight in the tumbling-gravity looks real (which, coincidentally was filmed in a rotating room, I realized later). It's not a first impression either, I watched the movie shortly after it came out and my aw is lasting. There are plenty of great movies, but they all seem to err in some aspect. With this one, I haven't found that yet. If you could fill in the #1 spot with any title, which would it be? Which movie deserves it better than this one?
Hope ^ doesn't sound like fanaticism, hah, I would be surprised if it really reached the top of the list, people have different tastes and views after all, but IMO it does deserve it.
