Okay Hallows, now I won't be able to picture "the Criz" without imagining his head as one of those rubber dog dumps that people hide their keys under. Hahaha!

I feel the same way, oddly, when I see new shows pop up on Nickelodean.  These shows explain why kids today are dumb.

The Quartermass Xperiment seems pretty underrated. It was actually a very good film for the time it was brought out.

I really liked Waterworld.  Kevin Costner did a good job and the idea of dirt being more coveted than gold was interesting.

Battlefield Earth.  Let the howls begin.  It was cheesy and silly and John Travolta in platforms was a sight to behold, but I loved it.  I found myself cheering when the humans rose up against the aliens.

Snakes on a Plane.  The special effects were well done and I just love Samuel L Jackson.  'Nuff said.

Starship Troopers.  This is one of my faves.  But I love Verhoeven's movies anyway.

Escape From New York/LA.  John Carpenter is a favourite in our house and these two were pure escapist nonsense.

Oof...I didn't know it was possible to like Battlefield Earth.  I can't truly judge it since I've never seen the entire thing, but the parts I've seen were so bad that it baffled me.

As for Escape from New York, I don't think it's underrated, rather it's well regarded by many people.  But L. A. is underrated for sure.  It's not at good as the first, but it's over the top enough to be entertaining.  I mean, it's got Kurt Russell surfing with Peter Fonda through an L. A. street!

Mystery Men- Vastly underrated in my opinion.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie- Decent enough kids flick.
Return to Oz- Shame it wasn't a bigger hit.
Little Nicky- Downright hilarious.

I LOVE this movie!  Sure, it has it's flaws but it's more faithful to the Baum books than the Judy garland version.  I love the dark take on Oz that the director had.  I'd like to see another Oz movie that tempers the darkness with  lightheartedness.

Take this for what it's worth:

Sci-Fi Channel has an upcoming remake/re-imagining of the Wizard of Oz, called Tin Man.  It stars Alan Cumming as Scarecrow, Richard Dreyfuss as the Wizard, and Zooey Deschanel (Elf), as Dorothy.

It's a science fiction type remake.  I heard it's a miniseries though, so it's probably gonna be like, 6 hours long.

"House of Dracula"  -It's considered by many to be the low point of the classic Universal horror era.  I love this movie and all of its over-the-top monster madness.  With Dracula, the Wolf Man, Frankenstein's monster, A Jekyll/Hyde type mad scientist, and a hunchback all in the same movie how can you go wrong?  The only thing that would have made it better is if Bela Lugosi had played Dracula.  John Carradine is still great though.  This one is always a lot of fun to watch and is probably my second favorite Universal horror flick just below "Bride of Frankenstein."

I also think the entire spaghetti western genre is WAY underrated!

 Has anyone ever seen IMPULSE with William Shatner? aka WANNA RIDE,LITTLE GIRL? Bill plays a real creepy scumbag psycho. It has weird child molester overtones...so mebbe that's why it doesn't get too much air play.

The Shat goes WAAAY over the top (more than usual) in this one! His performance makes this a real classick! I saw it only once...in the seventies at the movie theater! In-friggin-credible!

Since I've been on a Kubrick kick lately, I'll say Eyes Wide Shut.  Hated it my first time with it but with more viewings, I've found it to be much much more than just a skin flick.  Fantastic film that a lot of people just don't talk about enough.

Also, RC, Impulse looks great!  Might have to search that one out.
