For me, I'd say it's Godzilla (2014), it's not the most underrated necessarily, but it gets far too much hate. Especially when compared to Shin Godzlila.

Shin Godzilla.  One of the most intelligently written and generally intelligent movies in recent years.  More believable than all. The fast and furious movies combined.

2004's THE ALAMO.  The best and most historically accurate Alamo movie ever made, but it flopped at the box office and was panned by critics.

The whole 50 Shades series. If you actually watch them, they are surprising deep and meanin... no wait, they do suck.

I have a few ghost stories in my collection that I thought deserved a bigger audience, including Below. An Irish horror comedy film called Grabbers was pretty good too.

GRABBERS was fantastic!

I saw a movie called KILL THE IRISHMAN (2011) which seems to have gone under the radar. Ray (the Punisher) Stevenson does a bang-up job as Cleveland gangster Danny Green! Recommended!

I saw KILL THE IRISHMAN on Netflix and really enjoyed it. I thought it did a really nice job of capturing the 1970s. Some critics thought it was basically a copy of GOODFELLAS, but I disagree (other than the fact that they are both mob movies).

A MIGHTY WIND recieved some pretty lukewarm reviews. I think it's a work of genius. far superior to the somewhat overrated BEST IN SHOW and in fact I think it's even better than SPINAL TAP. It's possibly my fav movie since 2000, period.

Most recently, I would have to say Lumberjack Man. I thought it was really entertaining, great kills and so funny.

I suffered through the 149 minute version of it in 1981: for me, the production stories about it are far more amazing than the movie itself.  Smile

Best Seller (1987) with Brian Dennehy and James Woods.



A truly astounding thriller with a cop (who is also a writer) coming face to face with his nemesis from long ago: his foe gives him info on a case which will not only bring down a bad guy but also give the writer his long-awaited best seller.

if I might bend the rules a bit Adrian Lyne as director did some really solid stuff: Unfaithful, Fatal attraction, Jacob's ladder, Indecent Proposal . I guess he works so infrequently people never really talk about him. He also doesn't tend to do heavy political stuff though I guess Jacobs Ladder kind of is.

What if more directors put energy into making ONE really good movie in the period of a few years instead of spreading out their 2 ideas over 15

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
