I came across a movie today that I felt went under the radar.
That gave me an idea for a post.

What movies do you think never got the attention they deserved?
These don't have to be Oscar worthy movies.
Just something that grabs your attention and won't let go..
Cult classics fit this category.

I'll list a few of my favorites below.

the End with Burt Reynolds and dom Delouise. Funny #!
Scrooge the musical with Albert Finney. My fav version by far
Rosemary's Baby is best horror movie. I don't know if you would consider it overlooked.

Death at a Funeral (2007) is a pretty good film and made me chuckle the other weekend. Not to be mistaken with the tragedy that was the American remake, which I have been warned not to watch.

This is not an American movie but I watched this on Prime:
Padmaavat


I think it is a movie every American needs to watch. This movie was very controversial in India as some
have deemed it anti-muslim propaganda.

en.wikipedia.org...


With a production budget of ₹2.15 billion (US$31 million), Padmaavat is one of the most expensive Indian films ever made.[7][8][9] Initially scheduled for release on 1 December 2017, Padmaavat faced numerous controversies. Amid violent protests, its release was indefinitely delayed. In December, the Central Board of Film Certification approved the film with few changes, which includes the addition of multiple disclaimers and a change from its original title Padmavati.[10][11] Padmaavat was rescheduled for release on 25 January 2018 in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D formats, making it the first Indian film to be released in IMAX 3D.[12] Padmaavat received mixed reviews. Critics praised the visuals, the cinematography and Singh's portrayal of Khilji, but criticised its storyline, execution, length and adherence to regressive patriarchal mores.[13] Critics also disliked the portrayal of Khilji as a stereotypical evil Muslim king and Ratan Singh as the righteous Hindu king

The Man who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot was amazing. It got 50/50 reviews, but I laughed, I cried. It was perfect. (Except the Bigfoot costume, but he's a metaphor, so it's fine.)Trailer

I was an extra in "Odd Thomas" I liked it!

My cinematic taste tend to be a tad bizarre....



I'm in the opening scene of this good film.

Congo (1995), for Ernie Hudson's and Tim Curry's performances. I love those characters.

Bruce Campbell is a geriatric Elvis Presley.

JFK is an elderly black man in a wheelchair.

Together they fight a mummy.

- Bubba Ho Tep -



A self aware mockumentary about what it would be like to interview and interact with a horror movie style serial killer ala' Jason Vorhees / Michael Myers.

- Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon -



I'm not even a fan or horror movies but both of these remain on my "must own" list as movies I make every new friend watch with me at some point.

A few less obscure but still oft-neglected mentions: Dark City, The Boondock Saints, American Splendor, Southland Tales and War Inc.

All movies I've watched multiple times. Most are surreal or weird and, yes, I do have eccentric tastes so don't @ me.

The End was hilarious, Burt was always good in those roles. Drinking the sour milk after taking a handful of pills, then spitting it all out looks like Walt Disney threw up LOL. Bargaining with God when he was going drown himself in the ocean. Definitely a film subject they probably would not do today or it would catch some grief over it/

I don't think you can call no country for old men under appreciated.

It won best picture, director and writer...

You're right, I stand corrected.

This one is definitely underappreciated.
