Holy s*** I didn't even know this one was panned by critics. How dare they. I loved that movie as a kid and still do.



Around the Network

Speed Racer (2007)
It still stands as the best anime live action Hollywood adaptation, and has some of the craziest visuals in any movie ever. As a childrens film, its campiness is welcome and it should've become a franchise.

Good call.  I love Speed Racer, but I remember it coming out about the same time as Iron Man, so it kind of got overlooked.



1. Shattered - with Tom Berenger and Bob Hoskins (1991). I loved the surprise ending and Hoskins character is great.

2. A Shock to the System (1990) - Michael Caine plays a devious office manager looking to quickly move up the corporate ladder.



I don´t know if these are underrated by critics, but they seem to be at least overlook by people.

Tideland (2005, a quirky movie directed by Terry Gilliam)
You Are My Sunshine ( 2005, South Korean melodrama directed by Park Jin-pyo)
Smiley Face (2007, high-art comedy directed by Gregg Araki)
The Triplets of Belleville (2003, animated film directed by Sylvain Chomet)
A Friend Is a Treasure/Who Finds a Friend Finds a Treasure (1981, horror movie directed by Sergio Corbucci)

I might have mentioned cube and cast away on the moon, but they were already mentioned.
Aaand I still managed to mention them again. They are good, both in their own way.

A. I. - Artificial Intelligence (2001, IMDb 7.1), my overall favourite movie. Spielberg and Kubrick, but still underrated.

Tales from Earthsea (2006, IMDb 6.5) - Studio Ghibli, Goro Miyazaki Anime, but still underrated.

Hellraiser (1987, IMDb 7.1) - Clive Barker. Best brutal horror movie with amazing special effects (no CGI junk), or Brain Dead (1990, IMDb 6.1) . Best horror movies were made in the 1980's.



I just watched In the Heart of the Sea.

Right now I have no idea why it was so panned by critics and flopped so hard, the movie got me hooked from start to finish, even Chris Hermsworth's acting was surprisingly really good.

In terms of underrated films I hear nothing about today, it's War Horse (2011)

It's a WW1 film, in a horse's perspective. What's not to love?
