    Super Mario Brothers. I'm one of only a very few people in the world, I think, that actually likes the movie.

    Moai: I agree with you on that one.

    ChristianWeeks: I was planning on starting an Underrated movies thread myself, but never came around to do it.

    Here's some more of my underrated list:
    1. Popeye
    2. Star Wars Episode One: To all of those who hate this obviously never seen F-Zero GP Legend, but I'm saving that for another time.
    3. Resident Evil (The First one)
    4. Bugs Bunny Superstar: Even though this is a documentary, this is a documentary done right.
    5. Batman and Robin (1966)
    6. Appleseed (Masamune Shirow anime): I personnally think that this is better than Ghost in the Shell.

    yeah,i don't get why people keep bitching about this one. it was better than the rest of the prequels, and i prefer jarjar to killer robots slipping on oil puddles,thank you. (but WHYtf did they kill off darth maul?!)
    only one that comes to my mind right now: The adventures of baron Munchhausen (terry gilliam). awesome film.

    Dead Alive (aka Braindead in the U.S.) great Australian zombie flick. Over the top violence and black comedy

    Boondock Saints

    Mallrats (this may be more nostalgia than anything, great 90s Kevin Smith comedy)

    Gandhi (like a 3 hour movie, fairly historically accurate, and Ben Kingsley looks EXACTLY like Gandhi)

    Straight Edge Ryan: If you liked Dead Alive, you should check out Peter Jackson's other pre-Tolkien films such as Bad Taste and the Frighteners.

    Sidharth: Serenity got mostly rave reviews so it technically isn't underrated, but that's your choice, not mine.

    eight legged freaks/arac attack
    if you liked the mummy,this one has a similar kind of humour and horror.
    i mean,if you have a tarantula as big as a tank attack a trailer,you can't help but laugh.
    seriously fun movie.

    Most of Miyazaki's films that preceded Spirited Away (which has gotten a lot of well deserved attention) merit a lot more acclaim (in the states at least). Especially Kiki's delivery service, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.

    Let's see... to name a few off the top of my head.
    -Fido: saw this recently. It's about a kid with a pet zombie. it's pretty fucking hilarious. Shame that there are so few good zombie flicks... and half of the good ones seems to be comedies (shaun of the dead). Fucking Romero, what happened to your movie making chops?
    -Network: If you haven't seen this, you're missing out. Great cast, great acting and very prophetic.
    -Groundhog day: This is more than just a comedy. It has a great message in it.
    -Sword of Doom: This is one of the best samurai movies I've seen.

    Here's one CGI film that I think is the Best CGI movie ever, but didn't get the attention it deserved: Ark. It was made by the same people behind Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, only with an original cast of characters and an epic fight scene involving giant robots at the end.

    I don't know whether I just have really low standards or what, but I liked all of the above movies that I've seen so far. More:

    Kung Fu Hustle - It gets pretty good reviews, but there just aren't enough people over here who've actually seen the movie.
    The Matrix: Reloaded - Sure it wasn't as deep as the first one, but the action scenes were pretty great.
    A View To A Kill - Seriously, Christopher Walken is actually an awesome Bond villian.

    Smokin' Aces. I dunno, it had a weird plot. The movie had a pretty colorful cast of characters though, I think that's why I liked it. :|

    I'd recommend Primer.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390384/

    It's a movie about the complexities of time travel, it's quite clever in that everything make sense even though it may take a few viewings to realise what is really going on. There are websites with information and times lines to help.

    Flash Gordon......?

    Great soundtrack, lots of shouting from Brian Blessed and some random American football player with a great early '80s haircut.

    You love it!

    I can't remember how well recieved this movie was when it first came out but as far as I'm concerned Mouse Hunt (with the guy that played Timone from The Lion King) was perhaps the most underrated comedy of the last fifteen years. That movie is friggin' brilliant.

    Also, as a fan of animation I feel that I should at least mention Prince of Egypt. It really bums me out that Dreamworks never got really deep into traditionally animated movies, they probably could have taken Disney Down a few more pegs if they had kept at it.

    P.S. I Love You is a decent movie.
    It was my girlfriends choice that night and i was expecting the same old shit, but was pleasantly surprised by it. Much better than your average 'chick-flick' if that is how it would be classified.

    So if your mrs is choosing and you are dreading the choice, steer towards P.S. I Love You, coz its actually not half bad.

    Hmmm... not too sure about the whole chick-flick thang!

    A great, yet widely derided, Arnie movie from the '80s is Commando. This film is full of awesome quotes from the big man, including:

    "You know I said I'd kill you last...? I lied"

    "What did you do with Sal?" "I let him go."

    and the great line at the end of the movie when Arnie's just thrown a pipe through Bennett, pinning him to the boiler:

    "Let off some steam, Bennett!"

    Awesome stuff...
