Despite its very long runtime (3 hours and 44 minutes), there isn't a dull or boring moment. It's one of the very few movies where I like to stand up and cheer.

Avatar (2009)
Many people hate it as much as others like it. So yes, it counts. Yeah, the plot is similar to Dances with Wolves (It's been a very long time since I last watched it, but I remember it for being decent than great) and Pocahontas (that movie was weak). But this movie is more about the experience than storytelling. I hate to sound biased, but I'm even looking foward to see what James Cameron has in store for the sequels. And I even enjoyed it more than The Hurt Locker. There, I said it.

If you haven't seen this film, don't be turned off by its higher-than-it-should-be ratings at IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes; it's better than it sounds. I'm pretty sure video game fans will like this. Go watch this movie if you haven't already. Trust me, you won't regret it.

Snowpiercer (2013)
I think one of the reasons why IMDb is giving it a lower rating is because of the hype, as critics really liked it. This movie has a real exciting climax.

Enchanted (2007)
The musical numbers are catchy. And Amy Adams is just charming. It's also one of those movies that puts me in a good mood.

The Mission (1986)
This film has one of the best cinematic film scores I've heard. And it's written by the legendary Ennio Morricone, who really should have won an Oscar for it.

Malcolm X (1992)
Denzel Washington delivers a great performance as a famous Civil Rights activist. He really should won an Oscar for his portrayal.

*sigh* This is one of those movies where IMDb disagrees with Rotten Tomatoes. Anyways, I thought the film was a fascinating experience. Scarlett Johansson, one of my favorite beautiful actresses, is sexy and her performance is spellbinding. The music is pretty haunting. And the editing, visuals, the atmosphere, and cinematography are excellent. There's even little dialogue, which does make the film a bit slow-paced. But it's what makes the film work.

As for the people who don't like this movie, I honestly don't know where are they coming from. Some even say the film is laughable. What?! What's so laughable about it? What are they seeing that I'm not seeing?

I can understand why some people wouldn't like this movie. But I've become of those people that likes it, and thinks it deserves more recognition. Plus, it has already grown on me after a few days of watching it.

I like Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro's performances, the creatively uncomfortable atmosphere, and I love the soundtrack. Just how can you go wrong with The Rolling Stones and Jefferson Airplane in the same movie?

Spaceballs (1987)
A 54% at Rotten Tomatoes? Are you nuts? If that movie had something like an 83% or higher, that would have been more accurate and acceptable.

Anyways, this movie is hilarious and a great spoof of Star Wars. It's better and enjoyable than the ratings make it out to be. It's really worth checking out if you haven't seen it.

Ratatouille is far from underrated in my opinion. I don't think any of the Pixar films are underrated because they're all well-known and well-liked.
Nice to see Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Mission, Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Enchanted and (clears throat) THE IRON GIANT on this list!
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Nov 23 14:28
One of the reasons why I have Ratatouille on the list is because it's not that much talked about compared to the Toy Story films, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Wall-E, and Up. Plus, they're the ones that are widely considered Pixar's best, even more so than Ratatouille.

Requiem For A Dream is in no way underrated.It is somewhat of an unknown,indie film. Your typical American viewer has not heard of it, and if they watched it, they would be like "HUH?" It an excellent Aronofsky film.. really quite brilliant.I own this film,but I suffer from acute clinical depression,and it so depressing that I can only watch it on a good day!Ratatouille is not underrated.If anything,maybe people get grossed out by the whole rat preparing food thing! :) Did not bother me a bit.I LOVED IT! THEN,lastly,The Thin Red Line is another one that the large majority of people have not heard of.It got lost in the plethera of war films. It was a beautiful film, but coming from the brilliant director Terrance Malick, it is no wonder. A really good film of his is called Badlands. Bye!

Heat is never underrated to begin with. It has appeared on nearly everybody's favourite action crime drama's lists.

Avatar is overrated. That movie was so boring. Not to mention, a deliberate rip-off of "Ferngully."
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Nov 1 13:07
I am sorry to hear that. But saying that Avatar is a "deliberate rip-off" of Ferngully (and also Dances with Wolves and Pocahontas) is a bit too subjective if you ask me. Plus, I hardly find the nearly 3-hour film boring. IMO, Avatar is more about the experience than storytelling. And it's also more like mutual understanding vs. brute force than humans are bad, but nature is good.
