    You people are horrible at research. Moon was universally praised and almost everyone that is into Sci-Fi saw it. Underrated =! Under performing financially. And Moon did really well financially for what it was.

    So according to WhatCulture, a women playing Bob Dillon is the most recognisable. These twats are embarrassing.

    *Moon* is a homage to a specific 1960 novella, "Rogue Moon" by Algis Budrys. If you like that era SF you need to read it, though it might feel ponderous to today's fan. It is a very cinematic tale - I could "watch" it in all its 60s glory as I read it. *Moon* has Sam Rockwell, which is an advantage, but "Rogue Moon" explores the morality more.

    What horse sh*t. “The fountain” was beautifully shot, but the story was crap. You can’t enjoy the beautiful shots, because you’re to distracted by trying to follow the story which makes no sense. You’re better off watching a documentary on discovery channel

    I really liked RockNRolla, I think it has better acting than both Lock Stock and Snatch (though its tough to rival Brad Pitt from that) and had all the same ludicrous story lines converging to a gigantic cluster f that you expect from Guy Richie.

    Ugh. The animation in Life Aquatic wasn’t cgi, for crying out loud. It was stop motion. By Henry Selick, contemporary master of the medium. Jeez.

    -Life Aquatic is one of my favorite movies... I would watch from whatever scene it would be.
    -Mary and Max is a very emotional animation. Intense and simple.
    -I had a hard time to understand The Fountain. But really like. I don't know why, honestly.
    The others I didn't had the chance to watch yet. But they are now on my list.

    In Bruges was HUGE!!! What qualifies as "underrated", because in my books, an Oscar nomination, Golden Globe win and many other awards don't place a movie in an underrated category. The Fountain, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful movies ever made :)

    I'm not sure how you can compile this list and miss out The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and The Proposition. Both are outstanding and criminally underrated.

    Deff gonna check out the rest of this list.
    I've already seen Moon, The Fountain, In Bruges (the grey maybe), The Fall. And I all liked them and thought they were special. So The rest on here is probably in that league.
    Heared about Life Aquatic a lot. Cheers!

  • Manuel Ricardo Garcia Arango

    The Road (2009) with Viggo Mortensen should be at the top. Besides, it's not really far from what the next generation will have to endure with the environmental degradation baby boomers and an assorted group of idiots want to sweep under the rug

  • Hunter wolfe

    The hunt 2013, Ink 2009,127 hours, the road 2009 and Blue ruin 2014 are all underrated imo

    No. No. No, I learned to never trust lists made by former, present or current media or film studies students. Because the ridiculous movie snobbery is just too much. I've paid for hours of films I wound up sleeping through because of the terrible mind numbingly dull, subtitled and pretententious wank merely I was conned into by hipster mongs. And now any 1001 books or films I apparently must see before I die but just make me want to die sooner so I don't have to keep watching or pretending it's "great". Definitely anything "underrated, extraordinary, gorgeous /insert false hyperbolic word of choice" by Jules or "strong FEMALE CHARACTERS SO IT MUST BE GREAT!!!! By anyone "identifying as a toxic feminist" fastest route to " yeah, not gonna watch them" I watched most of this list already. Not falling for your lies this time.

    First of all, quotability does not make a film good. Otherwise Napoleon dynamite would make this list over Steve Zissou. How about Sunshine, the 2007 sci-fi/horror flick. Now, Event Horizon was about 80% horror and 20% scifi (and also came out in 1997), This movie is more like half and half and was largely overlooked when it came out and for years everyone confused it with the Fiennes/Weiss historical drama of 1999 of the same title.
