Most Underrated Movies of 2016


The Top Ten

1 The Finest Hours
2 Sing Street
3 Hardcore Henry

This is awesome! Barely anyone knows about this movie. It's super underrated too. 10/10 - AlphaQ

4 Eddie the Eagle
5 Allegiant

I don't know why so many people hate this movie, the plot was interesting, the acting was good and had an interesting atmosphere. To me, it kind of felt like a science fiction Attack On Titan but focuses more on the government. - Seventies-Music-Fan

I didn't like this too much...4/10 - AlphaQ

6 Hail, Caesar
7 Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

I would put this one my most overrated movies of 2016, you had two big names with Michelle Yeoh and Donnie Yen and still the director decided not to let them have cool fight scenes by insisting on putting in too much terrible wire fu. The most anticipated movie because of how awesome Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon was, this movie pretty much failed on every level to make a martial arts epic, The worst part of all was that it was directed by the legendary director behind: Drunken Master, Iron Monkey, Magnificent Butcher, Buddhist Fist, and put the likes of Donnie Yen, Jackie Chan, and Wu Jing into the martial Arts spotlight - germshep24

27 The Neon Demon


28 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
29 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
30 The Brothers Grimsby
31 Ice Age: Collision Course
32 Ghostbusters

I'm mostly giving this movie a mention because of how the hatred for this movie feels way too overblown.

I know Sony haven't had the best business practice and I know this is a pretty unnecessary remake of a beloved comedy, but for the love of good if you say anything positive about this movie people act like you've committed murder.
I mean Fifty Shades of Grey didn't get the absurd amount of abuse and venom that this movie seems to have garnered, and that movie was actively harmful and offensive. And no, don't try to paint the haters as completely innocent in order to simplify the conflict, because quite frankly both sides are in the wrong here. Sony for trying to capitalise off the sexist backlash and paint those who had legitimate criticisms with the film as a sexist, and the haters for resorting to all this sight unseen hatred and chastising anyone who liked the movie. Even though a lot of the haters didn't even see the movie before judging. At the end of the day the ...more
