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.
