I feel that sometimes too when I am watching any film. If you watch a film when your heart isn't in it, you will just sit there and nod off. It has to be the right moment when you really want to watch a film.
This movie didn't do well in the box office but I think the sales on VHS were pretty good. Loved this movie since I was about ten years old. It does what it sets out to do... have fun.
I don't know if this one is underrated because there are so many people that don't know of this film. It's one of my favorite movies. A must see for Star Wars fans but you don't have to be one to enjoy this film. Very funny and has heart.
Identity doesn't live up to the others in terms of action sure, but I think its good from a story standpoint.
I gave it a solid 9/10, that's one up from the brilliant '28 Days Later'. Seriously underated in my honest opinion.
Yes.... Your spot on Sir....!!!
Even though you know whats coming, my neck hair always stands on end!!! Being chased by a load of bloody thirsty zombies, what a way to spend an evenings viewing!?? :-SS
I adore Sunshine. Its by far my favourite Dnany Boyle film and tragic that it barely dented the box office.
I have really tried with Blade Runner (must have seen it about 5 times) as everyone goes on about how good it is but I just find incredibly dull. Have to say I find that with most Ridley Scott films. Dont really see why hes so feted. His films are good but for me never beyond 8/10. Thelma and Louise his best I would give that a 9.
Most underrated film? Got to be Escape to Victory. Genius and possibly the best film ever made.
As i know, Mathieu Amalric is the villain, right? (didn't google it :P)
EDIT: lol, that was Gary Oldman.
And story is what matters in film!
I own a copy of moon e excellent film, echo's of 2001 and silent running. Also enjoyed source code by the same director.
I think it's gets unfairly criticized, I've read the book by Alex Garvan back to front and the film does stray away from the source material at times, but it's still a very good release. I think DiCaprio is better here than the VERY OVERRATED Titanic actually. It just has all the necessary ingredients to make a very entertaining few hours spent, and it has the lovely French actress Virginie Ledoyen for good measure. I just feel it simply doesn't get the recognition it deserves

I think this movie is one of Fincher's masterpieces - one that gets lost in the shuffle of his other brilliant works like The Social Network, Fight Club, Se7en, and most recently The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo... but I absolutely the love The Game - as it feels like a modern day Alfred Hitchcock movie, where you take an ordinary man, and turn his world completely upside down..... not to mention, it had one of the best uses of the song "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane ever in a film..

This is another film that sorta gets lost in the shuffle - one i recently discovered a couple years ago, and i was shocked at how many people hadn't seen this movie, or had no clue what i was talking about when i asked them if they had seen it... once again, Michael Douglas does an excellent job portraying a man who just one decides he's had enough crap - and just wants to "go home"... a brilliant, and often forgotten about piece of 90s cinema...
as a child, i grew up not really caring for Michael Douglas at first - but watching these 2 films, now that i am older have given me new respect for the man, as he's become one of my favorite actors.
i think you mean Eastern Promises
it was nominated for 3 Golden Globes... Best Picture, Best Original Score and Best Actor
it was only nominated for 1 Academy Award... Best Actor
I've asked so many people after I first watch this enjoyable thriller if they liked it. And they said 'no'. This makes no sense to me as he recieved good reviews, decent box office numbers (Better than the superior Memento) and terrific performances from Pacino and Williams.
Yes, that is it: Eastern Promises! Good film; Viggo was great. Really gritty fight scene in the turkish bath, too.
It is seen as a "guilty pleasure" by many, but I will shout it loud and proud that this films is awesome. I've loved it since I was little and Will Smith is brilliant as usual. The plot is interesting and always keeps you engorged, and the film carries a what would you do and is it right or wrong mentality to it that is uncommon to its genre.
Totally agree, I also grew up loving ut! I still can't understand all the hate. It's not a bad film.
Keach is one of those actors who's career missed the boat. Possibly that could be connected to his bust for possession of cocaine back in 1983, I don't know. But The Squeeze is hugely underrated, and shows how good Keach could be. This film has that gritty feel that only british films and tv shows of the 1970's could have.
I agree as well. I actually own this movie! I didn't know that it got alot of hate.
Watchmen is my bloody bible, and I hate to see the film version smashed. But, it happens. Usually the people who add negative criticism haven't read the graphic novel. The film handled the ending better too in my opinion, when
and my favorite
BUT to offensive for mainstream, guess thats why it never got alot of attention.
