    Would be nice if people stopped hating on The Fountain it's a beautiful movie and everyone who's fallen victim to cancer would deeply appreciate it.

    Valhalla Rising is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I'm not the type to walk out of or not finish a movie. I did finish Valhalla Rising, but God it was miserable.

    The strange thing is that I think I have seen almost all of them, and yet none has left any strong memories of 'wow - that was great'. Moon had a massive plot flaw in it but it started well (very reminiscent of Silent Running), The Guard was somewhat gentle with the IRA, In Bruges was fresh so I would recommend that, The Fall seemed to put all its energy into making pretty images, and I think I saw Mary and Max and The Fountain, and The Life Aquatic, but none stayed with me. I might give The Grey a chance, and possibly Valhalla Rising (although that looks a bit grim).

    rapid clip flashes, even faster music, and a hyper speaker with an even faster constant pace. before i realized it my heart was beating 3x times faster than normal, and I stopped watching the video at approximately 6:16 before i blew up

    A nice review, but the guy is rushing too much, kinda choo-choo-train -
    I mean I have a feeling that hte speaker is in a great hurrry, like he is about to miss his train o plane..
    & the music irratatvely takes on the nerves. Why to be in such a hurry?
    Chill down a bit, man! :D

    Valhalla Rising is just overwhelmingly boring... one of the few movies I actually considered not watching til the end. It has 1 or 2 good fight scenes and that's it. The rest of the movie you're just waiting for something exciting to happen... and it never does.
    The Grey was way overexposed if you ask me. I saw commercials for it everywhere when it came out. It looked good but was decent at most. The ending was just... flat. I remember being left with "was that it? whaaaat..?".
    I haven't seen the other films so I can't comment on those, but from the looks of it... it seems like we have very different taste in movies :p

    Omg. Thank you for putting The Fall at #1!! I loved it, the beauty if it made me cry. This is a wonderful concept. I've seen and loved all but three of the movies and, of those, I've heard great things. Brilliant, please keep them coming!

    Valhalla Rising was terrible. I wish I could get the two hours I wasted back. There's virtually no dialouge and hence very little story and character development. Please don't watch this movie if you're looking to be entertained. I also found The Grey to be very disappointing. it was long and dull and they end the movie right before the big fight scene. The fact that these movies were recommended makes me really loose faith in WhatCulture.

    The Life Aquatic is not only the most underrated Wes Anderson movie, but one the most underrated and underappreciated EVER. Every line of the movie is pure gold and the music is as good as it gets. SO SO AMAZING.

    When a movie is not accessible, it deserves to be underrated. Most people don't want to watch movies with the "Yeah, its flawed, but..." feeling.

    Kind of amazing that Rotten Tomatoes has a 53 score for life aquatic. I guess at the time Wes Anderson didnt have the clout he has now? Cause seems like its pretty loved

    Moon is underrated and Avatar was part of what made 09 a great year for scifi? Damn man, making it really hard to take this list seriously right off the bat. Moon is a cult classic that everybody loves (how it could be called "underrated" by anybody is pretty hard to understand...) and Avatar is an unadulterated, pure, steaming massively expensive shit. Perhaps the poster boy of overrated movies that didnt age well at all and instantly revealed which critics were braindead partisan hacks.

    I've seen and liked all of these. I rarely watch movies more than once (especially lately) - but some of these I've watched several times: Moon, The Guard, In Bruges, and The Fall. It's *REALLY* a shame that The Guard grossed so little - it's easily in my Top 10 movies - it's a great film.

    I came back just to give you a thumbs down for Valhalla Rising. The first 20 mins were freaking awesome! Then it got really slow, boring and just weird. The boat scene was horrible, you could tell they were not even moving at all and it lasted waaaaay to long. Do yourself a favor and watch the 1st 20 mins and the last 15 and thank me later lol.

    The Fall and The Fountain, without question two of the most awe-inspiring cinematic experiences I have ever seen.
    I disagree, however, with the suggestion that The Fountain is unfocused. The exercise in making this film, I think, was challenging the correlation between multiple simultaneous story lines, each of which informs the main theme of searching for eternal life in contrasting yet identical narratives. Each narrative plays an essential role in supporting and informing the grand conflict, but at the same time, each is seeded by the necessity of the grand conflict. It's truly a mind-bending experience you just have to see for yourself.
