Highly Underrated/Unknown Movies - Page 21

Just saw Killing Them Softly, it's actually a lot better than what the reviews had lead me to believe, also Rock and Rule, Electroma and Valhalla Rising.

I enjoyed it. Bitter, out of control James Gandolfini was worth the price of admission. "You want a tip?..."

The Guard was a good movie. Tongue-in-cheek with a sly wit. I actually saw this in a small theater in Southern California so it was released in the U.S. but to say it was a limited release would be to put it mildly.

One of my all-time favorite movie is Paris, Texas by Wim Wenders. Not sure if it really qualifies as Underrated/Unknown but it was released in 1984 and a lot of people I spoke with never heard of it.

Has Heathers been mentioned yet? So morbid, so funny.

I love my dead gay son!

Good movie. Loved the last line... "America's not a country, its just a business. Now fucking pay me."

Defending Your Life is a lot better than it's BO would indicate. While there are some massive directorial mistakes, Albert Brooks' easy touch with sad-sack comedy timing carries it through.

Before Sunrise is great, but I'm not sure I would call it unknown or underrated. it's an acknowledged classic.

Awesome movie. Have not seen it in a while, but I enjoyed it a lot every time I watched it.

Again, not sure how The Game is underrated or unknown. 100M BO and a critical darling. 

 

After Hours, underrated Scorsese. Shitty BO and mixed reviews, but a hell of a lot of fun.

Didn't like it the first time I saw it as a youngster, for some reason. Loved it when I watched it again a year ago. Rosanna Arquette is amazing in it

 

Two british shipwrecked movies

Paradise Lagoon (1957) also known as The Admirable Crichton

The Little Hut (1957)

 

TV someone might have missed

The Flame Trees of Thika (1981) (TV Mini-Series)

Danger UXB (1979)

Slings and Arrows (2003)

 

This one below only has 5.2 on IMDB, I really like it

Oh Heavenly Dog (1980)
