Overrated and underrated movies

Title says it all.

Overrated for me are, off the top of my head: One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, The English Patient, The Batman trilogy from Nolan, anything from Quentin Tarantino, No Country for Old Men.

Underrated: Dogma, Barton Fink, Mr. Nobody, Her, The Best of Youth, the Apu trilogy.

One Flew Over The Cookoo's Nest is a brilliant movie mate!  What didn't you like about it? O.o

The English Patient is only great in the final 45 minutes (very great) and the rest is absolute turd.

One Flew over the Cuckoos nest? Blimey fella, I think that's actually underrated

Agree with probably everything on the lists bar Requiem. Shawshank is top of my list for overrated. People that have never seen rate it as their number one ffs.

Yep, I remember you liking Requiem, I just think it's over-pretentious, migraine-inducing tosh :ph34r:

Zoolander

Underrated

So in this thread: Underrated = Movies that have good ratings and were generally well received ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Here's a suggestion. The Bedroom Window. I accidentally stumbled on it while surfing on YouTube for bad movies, but this one is actually a terrific thriller. A movie that Alfred Hitchcock would be proud of.

I have two others in mind as well:

Sunset Limited (2011) - Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson discuss the meaning of life in an apartment. Sounds weird and pretentious, it's a great film though.
Midnight Run (1988) - an action comedy with Robert de Niro, it's fun and entertaining while not being too silly.

That one was great! And it has the good kind of Samuel L. Jackson in it, not the constantly shouting profanities and generally being the same character in every movie kind of Samuel L. Jackson.

If you like when Samuel L. Jackson is not Samuel L. Jackson, watch The Red Violin, if you haven't yet: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120802/

De niro and Grodin had great chemistry. Remember watching it as a teen, and wanting that belt.

@Topic

Yankee Zulu. If you like Gods must be Crazy or Stir Crazy, then Yankee Zulu is the movie for you.

Cousin Cousine (original French) is another of my favourite. Lovely romantic movie, with a lame Hollywood remake.
