Hey! Here’s ten movies that I felt were slightly underrated, didn’t get the respect they deserved, were slightly underappreciated, didn’t make the money they should have, or were thought of too negatively.
Rotten Tomatoes: 67%
Box Office: only 100 Million on a 50 million budget
Fun, exciting, scary, and well acted, this is one great time at the movies.
2. War for the Planet of the Apes
Box office: 490.7 million (compared to its predecessor Dawn 710.6 million)
Incredibly beautiful to look at, moving, poignant and surprisingly one of the more relevant movies to our current times.
3. The Lost City of Z
Box Office: 17 million
A terrific adaptation, great production design, acting from Pattinson and even from the usually not so great Hunnam, and an engrossing emotional story.
4. The Lego Batman Movie
Oscar nominations: 0
Boss Baby Oscar Nominations:
5. The Wall
Rotten Tomatoes: 66%
Box Office: 4.5 million
A simple story, but an Incredibly tense cat and mouse thriller that feels authentic and scary.
6. Alien: Covenant
Box Office: 240 million (compared to Prometheus’ 403 million)
Rotten Tomatoes: 68%
I loved Prometheus, but Alien Covenant is a return to form for the franchise, a smart, horrifying sequel.
7. Annabelle: Creation
Rotten Tomatoes: 69%
How could a sequel to an almost poor horror film be so incredibly terrifying and surprisingly good? Do not skip this film.
8. I Don’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore
Funny and entertaining while being smart, feels like a good 90’s crime/action thriller. Should be on many more top of the year lists, it’s hard to gauge its popularity when it’s a Netflix release but the buzz feels low, and this is a film I want more of, so I’ll champion it.
Rotten Tomatoes: 27%
Bright isn’t that great, but it’s fun and entertaining and deserves a higher rating than 27%
10. Free Fire
Rotten Tomatoes: 68%
Box Office: 7 million
Wickedly entertaining with a smart script, deserves better on all accounts.
