    Life Aquatic is a piece of crap.

    Life Aquatic has moments that just kill me...a couple of backstabbing colleagues in the explorers club running down Bill Murray's character who just stands behind them giving them this look...it just always makes me laugh out loud. His way of acquiring needed equipment is pretty funny as well. As is Bud Cort's small but surprising role.

    I've always wanted to see moon but never got the chance I always thought it was really interesting even as young as I was

    Life Aquatic has a deserving score. It's terrible.
    You forgot to mention that you have to want to watch it again for it to get good.

    Kinda offended that you wouldn't include asian and indian movies. Which actually command the largest audience

  • DeepFried Wat3rMel0n

    How about Bronson? Fucking hell, how about Children of Men, arguably one of the best films ever made? Christ, even the assassination of jesse james which was completely overshadowed, or the australian masterpiece the proposition? or half nelson or lars and the real girl, both containing some of ryan goslings finest works? or zodiac? the 2000s were incredible for movies.

    The Game with Michael Douglas. I was shocked how good this movie was considering I had never heard of it prior to watching it. GlenGarry Glen Ross is another mega sleeper. If you love good dialogue, then you'll love it.

    Kingdom of Heaven (Directors Cut), hidden from audiences this version of the movie was far superior and imo a classic.

    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.

  • Sara Martine Johansen

    I really don't get the loud techno background music, I made me stop watching even the video it self is really interesting

    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 :)

  • Bryan Strange

    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
