    wtf was bob dillon a woman and a black guy at one point? Dumb arthouse shit. Oh lets make a movie about the life of Elvis and cast a chinese woman to play him because that makes sense.

    Bunraku with Josh Hartnett was a super strange and cheesy flick, but it was supposed to be. The cinematography and writing is overly exaggerated to give the feel of a traditional Bunraku playwright(Japanese puppet show), but it incorporates the cheesiness of 70s and 80s martial arts flicks(Yuen Wo Ping,Sammo Hung, Shaw Brothers, Akira Kurosawa,Sonny Chiba,Et cetera...). I think the Bunraku movie was pretty amazing, considering that it is a cinematic film playing out like a self-aware stage play.

    Ugh "The Fountain" - I wanted to like it, but it just dragged and repeated itself, I found it pompous and over-reaching

    Brick - the best indie noir detective movie nobody saw.
    Casshern - the best Japanese zen existential action movie since the matrix
    R-point and Gaurd post 506 both great
    Under suspicion - the best Morgan freeman Geene hackman film you missed

    No, no, not everything, you say. The Fountain is (sorry) a true fountain of melodramatic kitsch.

    Good call on In Bruges. I would also add a brilliant comedy and parody of musical biopics, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. It was well received by critics, but a box office bomb. It does turn up occasionally on cable, unlike pretty much every film in this list, so perhaps it's not quite underrated enough.

    I’m glad to see Valhalla Rising, what an intense film. Not every film deserves words, sometimes it’s a waste to hear them.
    For your Mads Mikelsen fix, watch Polar on Netflix, surprisingly good.

    Great list!
    Agree with every selection... and luckily, had viewed more than half of them already.
    Can't wait to try Mary and Max. Rewatch The Guard for the 30th time. And actually sit down for The Grey, in which you perfectly surmised my reason for not watching it in the first place!
    You win, Two Internets!

    Not sure if the movie Phone Booth (2002) counts as an underrated film. Its a great movie with superb acting, I gained a lot of respect for Colin Farrell as an actor after watching it.
