II think Tim Burton's 9 should have gotten more attention than it did. It was by no means excellent, but it was some cool shit.

I grew up with that movie. I've been watching it since before I can even remember. I have it on my hard drive now and still watch it all the time. I grew up with a lot of epic fantasy adventure movies like Krull, Clash of the Titans, Flash Gordon, Jason and the Argonauts, Jack the Giant Killer, the Sinbad movies, etc.

I only saw Krull for the first time a few years ago.

I guess I'm immune to the "you only like it cause you're a nostalgia fag" argument.

I just think it's a really solid fantasy flick.

Another underrated comedy is The Burbs

The mainstream doesn't seem to regard it as highly as the other Tom Hanks comedies of the 80's, like Big, Bachelor Party, and The Money Pit, but I prefer it over all of them.

Day Zero, it's a movie based on the columbine shootings, it was released in 2003, for anyone who's interested in finding it.

Isn't that great though? It just kept going, rarely slowing down, just a long fight without filler. :)

Better than having a bunch of cliche romance scenes forced in, but I still would've liked a few moments to breathe though.

Have you seen Hard Boiled btw?

Nope, not yet. I should watch it sometime.

Yes it is in Spanish, that adds more to the atmosphere so live with reading subtitles to enjoy a brilliant movie.

That is one of my favourite films of all time, but is it underrated though?

It has very good ratings on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes. The only bad rating I've seen for it was the one in my parent's TV guide (2/5 stars), but that reviewer is an idiot anyway.

Yeah, Pan's Labyrinth was pretty big. It's one of my favorite movies, but I don't know if I would call it underrated. The Devil's Backbone, on the other hand, might be.

That one was good. I've never seen American Pop, but I loved Wizards, which was also directed by Ralph Bakshi.

The Thin Red Line (1998)
In my opinion, one of the best war movies of all time. Extremely gritty. Does not chince on brutality, there's no fluff here. So shocking it'll make you cry. It's such a shame it came out after Saving Private Ryan, so it was totally over-looked. :(

I saw Taxi driver recently. I thought that was a great film, strange story line, and De niro plays a great psychopath. Also i don't feel like Collateral got as much attention as it should have. I think it was an amazing film, Tom Cruise and Micheal J. Fox actually worked really well together.

Gummo. It's one of my favorite movies. Everybody should watch it at least twice. It's on Youtube for free (although with a few scenes cut out) so there isn't much reason to not watch it. It's one of those movies that is much better the second time you watch it.

That reminds me.. Mysterious Skins.. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It's about a pretty fucked up subject, but it's great. One of the best movies that JGL has been in.

IMDb description: "A teenage hustler and a young man obsessed with alien abductions cross paths, together discovering a horrible, liberating truth."

I guess Sunshine was a bit underrated. Collateral was awesome.

I dunno about Taxi Driver, though. It was very good, but I'm sure it got plenty of attention. That improvised scene in front of the mirror is iconic, for sure.

That sounds a lot like They Live. Description: A drifter discovers a pair of sunglasses that allow him to wake up to the fact that aliens have taken over the Earth. Well the description doesn't sound similar at all, but it could be phrased similarly, it sounds like the plot does. :) Makes me think of Deep Impact btw, a movie that came out the same year as Armageddon, with pretty much the same plot, and a set of great actors, very similar. The only thing it didn't have was Bruce Willis. As a result it seems to be a bit of a forgotten gem.

That sounds a lot like They Live.

It doesn't actually have much to do with aliens.. The alien part is actually quite small. The netflix description is better.

"Gregg Araki's riveting drama, based on a novel by Scott Heim, brings together two unlikely heroes: a young man who works as a prostitute and another who's convinced he was once abducted by aliens. But it seems they have unspeakable tragedy in common."

It's a really great and really disturbing movie. Definitely worth watching.

The original, or the remake with Bruce Willis? The original is definitely a bit forgotten, the remake maybe a bit underrated. Both great movies!

I actually loved DreamWork's Antz (1998) despite my being completely terrified the first time I saw it. When I watched it again as a teenager, I noticed how brilliantly written it was! It's unfortunate that Disney-Pixar's A Bug's Life completely wiped it from the face of animation history. Don't get me wrong, the Pixar film is better and the characters are more memorable. But, since Antz was animated, yet also not meant for family audiences, it was hardly as successful as it could have been.

The Cat in the Hat

Starring Mike Myers as The Cat, it is a bit disturbing at times. Other times when Mike Myers is just having fun in the role, it can be quite hilarious. It is a movie that I enjoy watching from time to time.
