A list of usually over-hyped or just very popular movies that many would disregard just for that fact, but that I really, really enjoyed!

I would have liked to include movies from the 30's, but even the most popular one isn't that widely known (from my 9s and 10s which don't include Fleming's movies)

I definitely agree with twelve angry men, that movie was awesome. Twelve angry men gave me a love of ambiguous endings.

Haha we have the same taste dude!

I love(or at least like) all of what I've seen from this list as well. Mainstream movies aren't always awful.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 5 23:05
I have seen 90% of the above films and I enjoyed them greatly, and by the way who cares the rating.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 5 23:37
^^ So have i, i also loved them all.

I'll be honest,
while I still think that The Dark Knight is incredibly overrated,
I still love the hell outta that movie.

Thank you all for the votes and comments, it's a very honest list

I would shoot myself in the head before I would watch Inglourious Basterds or Watchmen ever again. Other than those two, this list isn't so bad. ;-P

You got nice tastes.
