Like Xanadon't I based my choice on rating here at listal. I compared my rating to the community's rating and here are the ones where the difference was biggest (i didn't include movies with a rating higher than 7.5 though)

(1) Mission: Impossible (Me: 9 You: 6.4)
(2) Batman Returns (Me: 9 You: 6.6)
(3) 8 Mile (Me: 8 You: 5.8)

Shutter Island and The Prestige?!? I'm sorry but this list doesn't make such sense to me. Like xanadon't and schwarzerabt justly pointed out before, an underrated movie is a movie that you consider good or great whereas most of the viewers consider it average or even bad. I think most of viewers consider Shutter Island and The Prestige as very good movies so I don't see how you can call them "underrated"...

Ok, I get u're sarcasm, so what do u want me to do in this matter, delete the list, delete those movies ? I didn't made this list only for a contest, u could also find here movies with low ratings that maybe are quite good... Btw, just a few did participate, so I could say that those movies are just provisory in the top, maybe after 50 participants the list would look totally different.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Jun 6 16:15
Hard list to make because under rated is so subjective -
but to me it means a movie that not many people saw or know about or a movie that was panned by the critics but I liked it.

My Ten:

1. Last Action Hero (Arnold's most under rated movie)
2. Quick Change (Bill Murray's most under rated movie)
3. The King Of Comedy (DeNiro's most under rated movie)
4. L.A. Story (one of several under rated Steve Martin movies)
5. Empire Of The Sun (Spielberg's most under rated movie.)
6. The Purple Rose Of Cairo (people don't seem to like movies where characters come off the screen, but as with last action hero - I loved this movie.)
7. The Perfect Storm (I thought it deserved the best picture Oscar over Gladiator)
8. The Brady Bunch Movie (One of my favorite TV to movie adaptions)
9. Troy (it was universally panned, but it's my favorite ancient times epic)
10. Spies Like Us (Stupid and silly but I enjoy it and can watch it over and over again.)

In defense of Shutter Island being seen as "underated"-- While what johan says is spot-on, the film was left off of countless movie critic's top 10 lists and was somehow also forgotten when the Academy Award nominations for best-picture came out. Sure, it was released early in the year, and the Academy's collective memories are often rather short. But still... Winter's Bone and The Fighter weren't near as good by just about any measure. So... in that sense I'd agree the film is in fact somewhat underrated. Maybe just not to as big of a degree as others.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Jun 22 9:10
@Coby, no seriously, I really enjoyed your comment and I thought it was a very good answer! Indeed, it is not your fault if some people don't get the meaning of 'underrated'. And indeed, it is a contest, you're not responsible for what the voters say.

@Xanadon't, I get your point, you can say that "Shutter Island" is SOMEWHAT underrated (I really emphasize the somewhat...) but is it one of the most underrated movies ever made ? No... and if I recall correctly the list deals with the MOST underrated movie, not the SOMEWHAT underrated.

But as a lot of people pointed out before, "underrated" is something very subjective. For example, I see "Rocky" on the list. This movie got the Best picture academy award back in 1977 (beating 'Taxi driver'....) but for some of us(that doesn't include me...), it is not enough recognition and the movie is still underrated.

"Underrated" to me means exactly what johanlefourbe pointed out: it's a movie that's really good when the majority failed to rate it high enough. Looking at "Shutter Island" (7.7 in Listal, 8.0 in IMDB) and "Prestige" (7.9 in Listal, 8.4 in IMDB), I think that's a high enough rating to be considered underrated. And I don't think not being nominated in the Academy doesn't really make a movie underrated because of the "Movies that don't deserve to win the Best Picture" argument.

So, I'm basing my list on those poor movies that really had it worse. At least, in my opinion.

1. War of the Worlds
2. Mars Attacks!
3. Event Horizon
4. Hills Have Eyes
5. King Kong
6. Election
-not underrated at all, in the March 1999 issue of Premiere Magazine, it was rated the best movie of the year by the critics.
7. Thin Red Line
8. Gosford Park
9. Sunshine
10. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

1. I remember seeing Tubby the Tuba when I was a little kid, but I can't really remember much about it.

2. I've seen The Lost Boys once because my mom suggested that I see it. For some reason, I didn't like it.

3. Sunshine, The Butterfly Effect, Lawn Dogs, The Town, Brothers, and Devil are NOT underrated, because from what I've read about and/or seen in trailers, they sound and/or look horrendous, so I passed them up. Sunshine is really inaccurate for the sake of entertaining the audience (the Sun does not work that way!). And as for Brothers, I felt like bashing everyone involved's brains in, except for the little girl who tells them off.

4. The Secret of N.I.M.H. and L.A. Story are certainly underrated. N.I.M.H. is one of the best animated movies out there, and Steve Martin didn't just star in L.A. Story, but wrote and directed it, too, and from what I could tell, it turned out great.

5. I have a few more suggestions for the underrated list: Little Shop of Horrors (1986), Kiki's Delivery Service, and Interstella 5555.

@Emily J., why do you always comment about movies that you haven't even seen? Just focus on the movies that you do actually know, otherwise your judgement won't be taken seriously.

And, by the way, 'L.A. Story' was not directed by Steve Martin so please do your homework...

@brawljeff, yeah, the fact that 'The Prestige' is on this list is really ridiculous but it is not Coby's fault. Apparently, the average Listal user has no idea how to assess if a movie is underrated or not...

I would go as far as saying that all the movies directed by Nolan (except for 'Memento') are actually really overrated, especially on this website.
Posted: 1 year, 1 month ago at Jun 15 13:14
@johanlefourbe Oh it wasn't an attack on Coby. This list is great! I mean the Prestige voters.

And I'm a huge Nolan fan, but Memento, Inception, Insomnia and especially Rises are indeed pretty overrated. Sorry, I know your favorite Nolan film is Memento. But I don't think movies with an IMDB 8+ rating deserve to have a spot on this list, except if underrated means unseen.

I don't get this.
Isn't underrated supposed to mean rated too low by audiences/critics?
Personally, I wouldn't class the Wizard Of Oz or Jurassic Park as under-rated; don't get me wrong, I love the films, but a lot of audiences/critics seem to love them films, so I don't think they're rated low enough to be under-rated.
Fantasia 2000 and the King Of Comedy; definitely under-rated.
