1. The Lady from Shanghai (1947)


If you like any of Orson Welles films then you should see this one. It's a really entertaining film-noir with an interesting ending.

5. King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962)


It's cheesy as hell and it has dated special effects, but it's still really fun to watch.

9. Klute (1971)


Despite the fact that this movie won an Oscar and is in the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, I still think this movie belongs on the list because besides that I don't hear many people talk about this movie. This is a unique thriller with excellent performances from Donald Sutherland and Jane Fonda.

20. The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Br... (1975)


Gene Wilder's most underrated movie. If you found movies like Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles funny then you should give this movie a chance.

If you are a Dustin Hoffman fan, you owe it to yourself to see this movie. It is a brilliant character study film that has his most overlooked performance in his career.

40. Strange Brew (1983)


While this movie is pretty well-known in Canada, I still think it's overlooked and it's probably one of the funniest movies to come from Canada.

If you liked Deliverance or Excalibur, then you must watch this movie since it's John Boorman's most underrated film.

Scarecrow is an amazing film with exceptional performances from Gene Hackman and Al Pacino. It is so underated.

The original verions of The Taking of Pelhan One Two Three and Assault On Pecinct 13 are brilliant action movies.

I agree that Assault On Precinct 13 is one of Carpenter's best action films but Big Trouble in Little China has got everything for me so it just tips it.

I also agree with you on Prom Night. It's a very entertaining slasher. There is so much tension in the scenes towards the end, with the disco music blaring in the background. It works so well!

Nice List!
