I've never met anyone who thought that 'The Blue Max' was underrated.

Half the people here are on the wrong thread.

The ending with Yamamoto is just pure class, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." Compare to the modern Hollywood cheese fest of Pearl Harbour where the Americans "win" at the end.

Plan 9 from Outer Space. Any Ed Wood films really.
They are so badly made that they are very enjoyable.

And when Bela Lugosi died half way through filming, didn't he hire his postman or something to play him for the rest of the film and keep his face hidden as much as possible
The film Ed Wood with Johnny Depp is great as well.

River Phoenix as well from memory, BBC used to show a film at 8 on a Sunday night, remember watching the Mosquito Coast and The River (Mel Gibson and Sissy Spacek farming along the Mississippi) around the same time.

You mean exactly how his father killed himself? He had gone through extensive tests with the fake company CRS too! They knew he would do this and exactly where!

Nah, wheeze, it is a weak part. Even worse though is the taxi water incident! If you can accept those events rather than believe in them it still makes great cinema.

I actually saw this in the cinema.

And, no, it's not underrated at all. It's bloody awful.

Casting Jagger. I don't what they were thinking.
