Underrated films or films that surprised you.

Captain America. I had kind of grown accustomed to the paper thin plots and cheesy jokes in Marvel movies. They were basically all flash and no substance. However I was surprised with how much I enjoyed Captain America.

Blood of Heroes (The Salute of the Jugger) 1989 movie about a brutal blood sport set in a post apocalyptic setting. Amazing.

They Live. Underated sci-fi film, and could be even more relevant nowadays. Plus, Rowdy Roddy Piper...

'This Means War' of this past year REALLY surprised me. I turned it on for noise but ended up going credits to credits. Not a great movie, but a lot better than I expected.

Beasts of the Southern Wild isn't underrated though. Considering how small it was originally, it really blew up. And it got the critical success it deserved.

I think I was more surprised with that one than thinking it was underrated.

I'd never heard of it really, until this chick at work that I talk movies/tv with was telling me about it. It sounded crazy, but interesting.

I had tears in my eyes at one point.

Beautifully shot, and very surprising film for me.

    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
    • Smaller and slower. I'd prefer Howard but this guy could be more likely after our first pick
