Most Underrated 2016-2017 Films


The Top Ten

1 Alice Through the Looking Glass

It was good. Why do the critics hate it? It has Johnny Depp being great as the Hatter. - girlcool

2 Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

A awesome film. DC's 2 best super heroes battling it out. Plus Jessie Eisenberg's hilarious Lex Luthor. - girlcool

Overrated and bad and made me dislike DC. - darthvadern

This was an awful movie. - LordDovahkiin

3 The Emoji Movie

I think people should be quiet about it. Yes, we get it. You don't like the movie. You knew it was gonna be bad in the first place so there's no excuse for the constant complaining. - IronSabbathPriest

Troll detected. Sending hate comments... - Fullwalking2

My kids absolutely love this movie they thought that poop walking around so funny that they just laughed at poop

One of the worst animated movies of all time. Underrated and atrocious are different things.

4 Suicide Squad

Weak editing and questionable plot, but the rest of the film was awesome. Margot Robbie is best Harley Quinn and Jared Leto is a great Joker (even though Heath Ledger is still my personal favorite). - girlcool

This I kind of agree with - MegaSoulhero

5 Norm of the North

Underrated, agree, I almost even loved it, I hated the jokes but rest was great. - darthvadern

A enjoyably silly film. The plot may be nonsense, but it was a lot of fun. - girlcool

This movie sucked. - Fullwalking2

Yeah, no. - 445956

6 Pete's Dragon (2016)
7 Logan Lucky
8 The Comedian

Robert De Niro's underrated comedy film. Very witty and funny film. - girlcool

9 Keanu
10 American Honey

The Contenders

11 Smurfs: The Lost Village

This film is so adorable and fun! - girlcool

Much better than the live acton films. - 445956

12 Bad Moms
13 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
14 Justice League Dark
15 Finding Dory
16 La La Land

This movie has flaws but I liked it a TON more than people on this site. - Phillip873

Had its moments. Funny and beautiful songs.

17 Saban's Power Rangers

This film is so underrated. Sure, the Rangers don't go into their costumes till near the end, but the build-up for it was fantastic, the characters had actual personalities and some depth, Billy was the best Ranger, Rita was more threatening compared to her T.V. show counterpart, the tone was dark and cheesy but not to the point where it was overly cheesy/Michael Bay Transformers bad, nor overly grimdark like that godawful Power/Rangers fan film, the acting was really good, and the action at the end, while kinda fast, felt exciting and uplifting, wasn't like how in the 1997 Turbo Power Rangers movie where the Rangers changed into their suits, changed out again and then spent half the film on a boat.

It did have some flaws though, some jokes were cheap, the zords could have looked better, while I do like the suits, some of the helmets kinda barely look like the dinosaur/prehistoric beast they're supposed to resemble, and I do wish they went more into the lore of the Ranger ...more

18 Batman and Harley Quinn

The 2017 direct to DVD animated film. - girlcool

19 It Comes at Night
20 Split
21 Beauty and the Beast (2017)
22 Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Wasn't quite as good as the first, but as that was such a tough act to follow it's no shame to be beneath it.
This sequel was crazy, occasionally ludicrous, but very enjoyable as well. - SuperSonic17

23 Loving Vincent
24 Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates
25 Descendants 2
26 A Ghost Story

I know not a lot of people have heard about this but its definitely worth a watch. It's a very deep and thought provoking movie, if you have a short attention span or are used to movies where the plot is obvious, I don't recommend this for you

27 Yoga Hosers

Enjoyably eccentric. - girlcool

28 The Survivalist
29 Swiss Army Man
30 Despicable Me 3

This Despicable Me movie made the least amount of merchandise and and critics panned it, it didn't even make to the list, shows how underrated this is! - darthvadern

Very overrated

31 Ice Age: Collision Course

No everybody hates this movie just because a few bad jokes but the emoji movie however is unforgivable - ikerevievs


32 My Little Pony: The Movie

Wrong version, this is the 1986 version, not the 2017 version. Though the latter sucked (this is from a casual MLP fan who was disappointed).

33 Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising
34 Rough Night

Why the hate?

35 The Red Turtle
36 The Secret Life of Pets


37 Trolls
38 Spider-Man: Homecoming
39 The Handmaiden
40 It
41 Cars 3
42 Kung Fu Panda 3
43 The Lego Batman Movie
44 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
45 Sing
46 Hampstead
