Doesn't seem very underrated.

This movie was her high point really and has disappeared into minor exposure since. Not that I'm complaining about that.

Juno doesn't qualify for the concept of this thread really as it was well-reviewed / rated at the time....

I think that anything above about 55 or so on metacritic should be the exclusion bar for not being "under-rated"

Juno for example got 81 which is a very high score for a movie.
Just before she made the much better and little known Hard Candy

Agree with poster above that Event Horizons bad reviews are shocking and far play to whoever mentioned "13th Warrior" man what a forgotten gem

Also underrated is anything Ryan Gosling done before he became a.sex symbol like " Lars and the Real Girl" or " Believer "

Michael Cimino's Heaven's Gate. A great film that was slated by critics.

Bad guys doing bad **** on a train, and our hero, the ridiculously named Casey Ryback, saving the day.

What's not to love?

Have you see the more recent ones on the low rent channels ?

He uses body doubles for EVERYTHING he can get away with. If you can't see his face it isn't him.

To be fair he's a big fat pensioner.

Great cast, Bill Murray is excellent.

I think the movie might have got a bit of a backlash critically due to high expectations because it was Wes Anderson's next movie after The Royal Tenenbaums, which had been a big hit.

Great soundtrack also.
I love that movie, I’m pretty sure they set out to make the worst produced movie ever, the sets, the continuity, rubbish. It works because of the crapness for me.

I thought this was great. Sandler was very good. And, not to sound too wanky, I thought the cinematography was brilliant.

Not to mention of that reality show where he is with a sheriffs dept. doing busts. He clearly struggles to even get out of the police car.

Silent Hill, fantastic atmosphere. The second one is worth a watch too if only to see Russell Howard on fire

Seagal is a weird fcuker if you read up about him

Prone to making a lot of sh1t up and the odd bit of multiple sexual harassment also

The only watchable flick with him was that one on the ship where he killed a guy by making a bomb out of a half-dozen eggs in a microwave

The Shawshank Redemption.

(Am I doing this right?)

But seriously, I have learned not to pay too much attention to horror movie review aggregates. A horror movie can be flawed in many ways and yet still be really good, it's a peculiar genre in that respect.

Also, I've noticed a general trend regarding review scores on the main sites (IMDB, Rotton tomatoes, etc) in line with new culture especially in the past year. If a movie ticks all the woke boxes, it will be highly rated. Might be a ****e movie though.
So these aggregate scores are less reliable these days, in my opinion.
