Before Sunrise/Before Sunset. Like most Linklatter movies, it’s a LOT of dialogue, but they’re very well written and fascinating.

I like The Fall directed by Tarsem.  It is visually stunning.  The main character is a little girl who is adorable.

Sherrybaby comes to mind.  It’s an independent movie starring Maggie Gyllenhal that no one seems to have heard of. 

From Dusk Til Dawn — Clooney in a horror movie!

Also, Oldboy, which I wouldn’t say is underrated, just not well known.

Life as a house

The Island

Playing by heart

All really great movies with tons of known actors but didn’t really get any hype!

I recommend them all. They cover the genres too: Life as a house is drama, The Island is sci-fi and Playing by heart is drama/chick flicky

I’m obsessed with almost everything Kevin Smith does. (original) clerks, mall rats, chasing amy. Dogma too but that was actually semi-popular for a minute.

I think it’s awesome that Lord of the Rings became so popular…I was a big nerd when I was little for liking it.  =)

 

Movies that are more obscure…um…Harold and Maude is a good one that I love.  What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.  Better Off Dead.  Those might be popular, though, I don’t know.

@hotchildinthecity:  LOVED Oldboy. They’re doing an American remake soon, which will probably be not as good.

Cop Out–FI and I liked it a lot, but I know some people hated it. What’s not to love about Tracy Morgan and Bruce Willis in a buddy-cop comedy?

Paul–I barely even remember being advertised, but I really enjoyed it. Seth Rogen plays an alien who has to get back to his home planet.

“It’s complicated”. For some reason, I love this movie, and most people I know just don’t. Also, “Big Fish”.

Departures.  Japanese movie that came out a few years ago, and it’s wonderful.

@Crindy:  I heard about the remake and cringed.  The only thing that made me sadder was the idea of Kristen Stewart in a remake of Martyrs *vom*

I thought Cop Out was hilarious.
