My Underrated Films

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.

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.

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.

*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 slow in a brilliant way like 2001: A Space Odyssey. And this is the lowest rated movie at IMDb that I really liked (9 or 10/10), of all that I've seen.

The critics are a bit indifferent compared to the general audiences. So, not liking this movie due to its disturbing and unpleasant nature and for the pace being a bit slow are perfectly understandable. But still, this film is worth checking if you can handle sadism. It also has a bit of black humor to it.

This film has one of the best cinematic film scores I've heard. And it's written by the legendary Ennio Morricone (i.e. The Man with No Name Trilogy, including The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and Once Upon a Time in the West), who really should have won an Oscar for it.

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, Jefferson Airplane, and Dead Kennedys in the same movie?

A 57% 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.
