    Most Underrated / Overrated Movies In Your Opinion?

    Watching Magnolia right now with Cruise, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Reilly guy from Stepbrothers, etc. Overrated movie somewhat, but goddamn Tom Cruise tore up that scene where he's at his fathers deathbed! Any movie with acting that good can't be overrated


    Most Overrated to me:

    There Will Be Blood

    That is the most boring and pointless fu k in g movie that I've ever seen. Just unwatchable shit. Horrible! Then after all that bs it ends with a guy getting beat to death with a bowling pin on a bowling lane inside a mansion? Who comes up with this stupid shit? Daniel Day Lewis is great, but that movie was horseshit!

    Directed by same dude from Magnolia. I didn't know that. I guess if you can have frogs raining all over LA then why not beat a retard to death with a bowling pin. He reminds me of Terrance Mann. The guy that directed The Thin Red Line. Great camera work and meaningful dialogue, but all over the place at the same time

    Most Underrated:

    Have to think it over.

    Donnie Brasco


    Probably Johnny Depps best work and my fav of Pacino's roles. Pacino dumped his loud ass arrogant winner at the game of life personna and got inside of a low level Mafia murderer and yet made him sympathetic as hell. The guy killed like 25 people in real life, but you sympathize with the dude when Pacino gets done with him. Thats the real life mob life too. If it was all glamorous with mansions then everyone would be doing it

    You won't be disappointed in this one. Best role of Stephen Dorff's life and Harvey Keitel is his usual self
    No wasted scenes. A revenge flick that keeps moving from beginning to end

    Fury


    That scene with the worlds last working Tiger tank was cool, but even that ended up stupid. German Tiger tanks had a tremendous range advantage on Allied and Russian tanks so why come charging out of cover into a short range fight while outnumbered? Stupid. Then the end. A whole goddamn German company is dumb enough to get wiped out by a disabled tank? That movie sucked

    A comedy but also social commentary that is becoming more true every day! Our educational system is broken. You should see all the books that little Ukrainian kids have to haul around on a school day.

    Dunkirk


    Boring movie. They even made dogfights with Spitfires and Messerschmidts seem boring somehow. Only the Stuka attacks in the beginning were worth watching. They could've taken 30 minutes out and nobody would've cared

    naturally these are opinions. imo very underrated the original Bonnie and Clyde. garnered a ton of Oscar nominations but won only two minor. funny, well written, well acted and exciting. when I was a kid a young kid I watched this move in the movie house. this was a time before the audience was treated to up close and in you face violence/blood. it was a complete shock when they showed a man being shot in the face right in your face and up close. today that is nothing back then it was shocking.

    and Faye D oh my.

    I've been to the museum with their shot up car. My God they took like 125 rounds or something? Literally turned both of them and the car into swiss cheese

    Funny thing is she was like 4'11 and he was 5'4 or something. Faye Dunaway is way taller then both of them

    I'll give you an old comedy that I thought was hilarious, but it never went anywhere


    Underrated:

    What Planet Are You From


    Gary Shandling, Annette Benning, Greg Kinnear, Ben Kingsley, and John Goodman. Alien (Gary Shandling) sent to Earth to get a Earth woman pregnant so they can take over from within. Hilarious! Every time he gets near a woman his dick starts making this loud vibrating noise Sad Shandling died so fast. He was hilarious

    Lol some of the tourettes syndrome lines from Norton in Motherless Brooklyn were pretty good, solid flick

    Yeah man, like Fidels said watch 25th Hour. Morbid, but great flick.

    Love Norton as well, arguably best ever imo.
