Do you ever watch a movie and think to yourself, “More people should be talking about this movie!” Throughout this article, I’m going to introduce you to movies you probably haven’t seen, that will have you asking this same question.
Here is a list of the 10 most underrated movies of all time listed from good, to great, to freaking fantastic.
10. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure
Referred to as the original Wayne’s World, the Bill & Ted series are some of the goofiest movies you will ever see. In the first movie of the series, we follow Bill and Ted (a young and insanely cute Keanu Reeves) as they travel throughout time meeting great philosophers like Socrates and Napoleon. There is a third one coming out with the boys as full-grown men, so make sure to watch this series before the third one comes out in theaters.
9. Get Shorty
This movie, staring John Travolta, follows a mobster who has a dream of making movies, mostly based on his own life. Not only is it freaking hilarious, but it also includes the added benefit of Danny Devito.
8. The Goofy Movie
When referring to Disney movies, The Goofy Movie is definitely underrated and one that should be talked about more. My boyfriend suggested we watch it a couple nights ago, and after fighting him on the fact that I genuinely believed it would not be good, I was mesmerized throughout the whole movie. Though you may also have your doubts, it is a movie worth seeing.
Beginners is the perfect movie to watch when you are feeling down and need a good cry. The only difference between this and a movie like The Notebook (not to put down the Notebook; that movie is aces), is that Beginners will create something for you to take away from it. And even though you will feel all the feels during this movie, you get experience it while witnessing a sexy as hell yet soft Ewan McGregor. What’s better than that!
6. Nocturnal Animals
Nocturnal Animals, though was nominated for best adapted screenplay, never made the cut for the best film of 2016… which I think is BS. Nocturnal Animals introduces a woman, played by Amy Adams, who goes through the pain she had left her fiance with. Not only is the overall story heartbreaking and leave you in a state of shock, but the artwork is something to take into consideration when watching this film. Also Jake Gyllenhaal… That’s all I gotta say.
When watching the movie Se7en, we follow an overly angry and kind of annoying Brad Pitt, while accompanied by the soothing voice Morgan Freeman. The movie is action-packed and filled with crude moments, leaving you asking yourself, “Could someone actually do something like that?” Added Bonus: You’ll finally know where the vine “What’s in the fucking box?” came from.
4. Inglorious Bastards
Inglorious Basterds, a Quentin Tarantino directed film, depicts a fictional revenge story from the Jewish perspective. Not only is it gratifying as hell to watch, but it’ll have you laughing throughout the whole film. The majority of people have strayed away from this movie because of the obscene amount of violence in the film, but it is definitely a movie that is worth seeing!
The idea that someone would fall in love with their computer is weird enough, but it’s even weirder to believe that you genuinely feel hope and pure emotion for that relationship. “Her”, staring Joaquin Phoenix, takes us on a journey through love, loss and acceptance through the magical world of film. Plus the added bonus of being brought into a futuristic world without robots trying to kill us for once is pretty damn cool.
2. American Beauty
American Beauty, in my personal opinion, is one of the best movies ever made. If you haven’t seen this film, it’s on Netflix so you have no excuse. Go watch it. American Beauty displays people and their needs to feel beautiful and important in the world. It is definitely bizarre to say the least and will have you walk away feeling like a different person. Watching American Beauty is definitely a movie you should put on your bucket list
1. Cape Fear
Coming in at number one, Cape Fear is a movie you should watch as many times as you can as long as you’re living. This comedy/drama/thriller staring Robert Dinero, Nick Nolte, Jessica Lange and Juliette Lewis, will have you so shook, you’ll have to pause the movie and ask, “Did that really just happen?” The amazing writing, acting and cinematography will have you hypnotized and contemplating for weeks.
