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.

    • https://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/forbrn.pdf Where did you come up with those false figures?
    • At the same time the NBA is talking about having west coast games start early so people on the east cost can watch
    • We have an education lottery in this state, and are still ranked in the 40's out of 51 in public education. Teachers still pay for the majority of their own school supplies, and are among the lowest paid in the country. When they legalized casino/slot machine gambling in SC, the areas that had them turned into complete shitholes or were already shitholes and the problems were exacerbated by the presence of a casino. The areas of Mississippi with riverboat gambling are also shitholes, and the economies around them are depressed while still dependent on the riverboats.  I've never been to Vegas, but friends tell me that it's one of the most depressing places on earth once you leave the casino properties.  I don't think it should be criminalized, but I also don't think it should be something we should promote as a positive, and/or pretend like there are positives that outweigh or nullify the negatives.
