The Top Ten

1
Cast Away
It tells a small story in a grand fashion. A man stranded on a remote desert island, fighting to survive while also coping with the fear of never being able to return as well as the overpowering sense of isolation.
It's simple, yet so captivating and emotionally wrenching. It has almost as much heart and soul as Forrest Gump and it is truly one of the finest movies ever made.
Yeah this movie is definitely underrated. I mean, it's not as if it received critical acclaim and was nominated for 2 Oscar's including Best Actor. It's not as if it's still a ver popular movie and is quite iconic... I don't think people understand the meaning of the word underrated..
What an outstanding choice! This movie shows what a great actor Tom Hanks is. The story of survival is incredible, with a heartbreaking love story thrown in. Considering the lack of dialogue in the film, it really holds your interest. Well done!

2 The Lost World: Jurassic Park
I really don't understand the dislike people have for this one. I personally prefer it over the original. It feels more wild, has more action and suspense, spends more time in the thick of the plot, and gives more screen time to the most enjoyable character from the first film, Dr. Ian Malcolm. The supporting cast does the job well, also.

Even more gore then all the movies combined (So far)

3Memento
This is a well-known and acclaimed movie. It is by few means considered underrated. That is like saying The Shawshank Redemption is underrated because it didn't make much money at the box office. My pick for most underrated movie is The Prestige, also directed by Christopher Nolan. It is a film about rival magicians in turn of the century London. Sounds boring? It is actually a dark and twisty tale that has a plot twist that is shoved in your face throughout the movie and you never notice it, like a magic trick.
Underrated? I thought it gained a lot of respect! Which it deserved if you ask me. Good film

4Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
People don't talk about this movie as much.
This movie is fantastic.

5I Dreamed of Africa

6Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
I really don't understand how Star Wars movies are on this list. Not underrated in the least bit. Movies like Cast Away, Memento, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, Catch Me If You Can, and Full Metal Jacket.. Belong on this list.

12Spider-Man 3
Honestly, it's to finally see Venom in a Spider-Man movie, this film was alright.
^ Meant to say it's finally nice to see Venom in a Spider-Man movie.
This movie sucks a

13The Godfather Part III
Offcourse most underrated movie ever.

14Dangerous Game

15The Fox and the Hound

16The Lion King 2 - Simba's Pride
Why is it that this movie can find no love among the critics? It truly hurts to see this underrated masterpiece so unfairly bashed and hated when it does not deserve it in the slightest. For I feel that, with this as a definite contributed, The Lion King Trilogy is superior to The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. If the first film were equal to Felliwship of the Ring, and The Lion King 1 1/2 was equal to The Two Towers, then Simba's Pride is absolutely worthy of being named the equal for The Return of the King.

It truly baffles me as to how criminally underrated The Lion King II is. Not once have I ever managed to find a single person who shared my standpoint for the film. My standpoint being that it is, in fact, as good as the original film down to the animation, story and songs. Why is this film shown no mercy, especially among critics? Surely there must be just one out there who shares my opinion?

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride is a Walt Disney masterpiece, and it brings me great depression and sadness to know that there are few whom those will listen to to share these feelings with.
I agree that it's underrated (never even shown in theaters), but it's not true that you are the only one that will ever enjoy it much. It is my favorite movie, although not quite as well done as the original Lion King, it, in my opinion has a more interesting storyline.
I really enjoyed this film and don't quite understand why it's so disliked and underrated. I know it doesn't hold up when compared to the first one but taken for what it is it's really well done and a lot of fun. The songs are catchy, the plot is interesting, and the characters are great. I really enjoyed it from start to finish and am proud to have the Blu-Ray on my shelf next to the original Lion King.
Totally agree
This movie is amazing! It's not quite as good as the first but it is still a great movie

17Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
This I'd my personal favorite Star Wars movie. Better than Empire strikes back in my opinion.
This is my favorite of the star wars movies. Why does episode 5 get all the fame?!
It was so disappointing to see that the first two Star Wars films got so much love and attention while the sixth one, which is my favorite, got called the weakest of the trilogy just because some people thought the Ewoks were "too cutesy" or some crap like that. Give SW6 a chance! The emotional fight between Luke and Vader is amazing and Lando flying the Falcon into the Death Star II's core was really fun to watch!

18The Great Mouse Detective

19Lara Croft: Tomb Raider
Quite fun actually deserved better

20Citizen Kane
