Top 10 Most Underrated Theatrical Movies of All Time


The Top Ten

1 The Fox and the Hound
2 Charlotte's Web (1973)
3 The Rescuers

I found it very great although the sequel is better - darthvadern

4 Oliver & Company

I watched a bit of it but I did not like it very much at all to be honest - darthvadern

5 The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Ew.I have an opposite opinion.The effects on this movie look prehistoric compared to the original. - DapperPickle

This is with no doubt the most underrated threatical movie of all time! This is actully better than the original in my opinion. The enviroment was great, the scene where the lab falls into the water is a classic scene, the enviroment is beautiful! it's set in a jungle, I love jungles! The end where the T-Rex is running in the city is hilarious, but I dislike that the swedish man died in the movie. - darthvadern

You have to be trolling - VideoGamefan5

6 The Good Dinosaur

Um no - iliekpiez

Thank you so much for adding this! It's a great movie and I can't believe some people think it's worse than Brave and Cars 2! - PeeledBanana

Wow! Not only is this movie a masterpiece by Pixar, it recieves almost no credit whatsoever, which is suprising, the characters are likeable, Arlo is very similar to me, I'm not so brave and get easly scared of somethings, the T-Rex's are so good looking, they are SO impressive, and don't get me started on the beautiful enviroment, this is probably the the pixar movie wtih the best enviroment, hifggh moutnains, reminds me so much of Norway, not to mention the animation is EVEN MORE impressive, the water looks so reallistic! In my opinion, this movie deserves much more credit that it get's! - darthvadern

Overrated - VideoGamefan5

7 Gordy
8 Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey
9 Star Wars - Episode I, the Phantom Menace

The hate for this film is why I hate the Star Wars fandom. Hate a child, hate comedy character, hate dark title (Phantom menace). You are all just pathetic 10 year old boys.

No no - iliekpiez

I liked it better than Rogue One and Attack of the Clones. - PeeledBanana

People are so ungrateful! This bought back Star Wars after 16 years! 16 YEARS! This is the backstory of Anakin Skywalker and yes he was so darn annoying but Jake Lloyd did his best, what do you expect from a young boy, I understand Hayden's hate, but Jake Lloyd's hate is pointless! People also seem to ignore the fact that Jar Jar Binks was NOT pointless, he showed Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon gungan city so that they could use a gungan sub so they could get to Amidala, do you see it!? Let's not forget thatr Darth Maul and Qui-Gon Jinn only appeared in this movie! Darth Maul had his amazing lightsaber duel at the end and it had a great song in it; Duel fo the Fates! - darthvadern

10 The Aristocats


The Contenders

11 Brave

Nope - iliekpiez

It was a very good tomboy protagonist film, and pretty funny at times... - EliHbk

It wasn't horrible but it was a little below Pixar standards. - PeeledBanana

Ok, this movie didn't suck bad like everyone said it did, but for Pixar it wasn't that great - Phillip873

12 Spider-Man 3

I just watched this movie yesterday, it's certainly not as good as the original, but close it is! It is actually my second favorite Spider-Man movie, which I know many people won't agree on me, but if there's one thing VideoGamefan5 will agree with me then itäs the fact that is much better than The Amazing Spider-Man 2. You can see my remix my thoughts on the rest of the movies too, the best part of the movie is the fact that it has three villains, Venom, Sandman and Harry Osborn, the good thing is that all the villains are great so that's one reason it's a masterpiece, and the story is great too, and this is something many won't agree with me, but the dance scene on the street was hilarious! - darthvadern

It's really underrated. - TheFourthWorld

Oh dear - iliekpiez

Better than both amazing spider-man movies - VideoGamefan5

13 The Powerpuff Girls Movie

I can agree - iliekpiez

Underrated movie - VideoGamefan5

I love the Powerpuffs and this film was good. - Drawbox

14 Beauty and the Beast (2017)
15 Minions

Wot - iliekpiez

Underrated? , are YOU SERIOUS? , this movie is so overrated, and is only made to make money, - VideoGamefan5

Not overrated anymore, more like overHATED, which has also turned it into underrated. - darthvadern

It's actually overrated because when it came out, it had products everywhere & it's the second highest grossing animated movie

It Was Decent In My Opinion, Please Don't Get Mad At Me - JPK

16 Cars 2

Honestly underrated, more "international" and interesting then the first. IT'S ACTUALLY BETTER! Why, because not everybody is a NASCAR fan or even a CAR FAN! - Maddox121

Worst Pixar film but I still like it. - PeeledBanana

After the really good Cars from 2006, came the masterpeice called Cars 2 from 2011, this is the only pixar movie that has got so much hate! Why's it so bad? It's great! Though I can agree it was kinda political, it was cool too! This is like James Bond of Cars! We have an interesting plot, a subplot, and Proffesor Zündapp is a great villian! All the gadget's the spy cars have are so interesting! And I actully quite liked Mater as the protanogist, because he fit's as a spy (unlike lightning mcqueen). It's so action-filled too! And considering most users here are above 10? It's really suprising that it get's a lot of hate because of the great action! - darthvadern

No offense but why do you use the word "political" when arguing these claims. This movie has barely anything (if anything at all) to do with politics - Phillip873

Though I sort of like this, it is NOT a masterpiece - VideoGamefan5

17 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

No thank you - iliekpiez

I am going to get a lot of hate for this, but am I seriously the only one here that adore this movie with a passion, I'm sorry but this movie is a masterpiece, Electro was awesomne, and the romance was done great, Harry Osborn was a really memorable character too, it has some really emotional moments and the action scenes were great, and I must say that the fights with Electro were so good! - darthvadern

What an atrocity. - ClimaxDome

People don't like this for a reason, it's a crappy over-dramatic superhero movie - VideoGamefan5

18 Star Wars - Episode II, Attack of the Clones

This movie deserves to be shamed upon - iliekpiez

If you just ignore the romance parts and the Tatooine part, this is better than stupid Force Awakens which brainwashed a whole colony of teens, but anyway, this movie is great and has amazing moments, the Obi-Wan vs. Jango Fett fight, it so good and fits in the movie so well! Obi-Wan chasing Jango Fett in the asteroid belt was exciting, and don't get me started on Count Dooku, he is played by one of the greatest actors of all time! Sir Chrstopher Lee! Why does everyone hate Dooku, if it's because Darth Maul wasn't in it, then I'm sorry, but then you have terrible reasons to dislike something, that's like saying Coco will be terrible beacsue The Shawshank Redemption was a masterpiece, you see? - darthvadern

Even though it's the worst Star Wars movie in the series, it's still meh. - PeeledBanana

Truly awful! Truly terrible! - MegaSoulhero

Don't vote for it, vote for a movie you think is underrated and then comment on this one. - PeeledBanana

19 The Princess and the Frog
20 Despicable Me 3 Despicable Me 3

Overrated - iliekpiez

No no no - iliekpiez

No, this is overrated. Products were everywhere & it made some good money at the box office

It sure made some good money at the box office, but nobody even talk about it. - darthvadern

It Was Good In My Opinion - JPK

21 A Bug's Life

This was the second Pixar movie to be released, and it is a beautiful masterpiece, but it still dosen't recieve any credit whatsoever, why? It's a beautiful moive, I'm glad it didn't recieve any hate, but it deserves more credit still! The cahracters are SO likeable, Flik, The Queen, Dot, Atta, you name them, they are all likeable, and the best of them is Hopper, he's so darn cool and scary at the same time. He is hitelr of bug's! He wants to get all the ants in line and he treats them like jews! - darthvadern

So you think a villain from a pixar kids movie being similar to a mad man is a good thing? - VideoGamefan5

22 Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

It's the best of the original trilogy in my opinion - darthvadern

I liked it better than the prequels and rogue one - VideoGamefan5

23 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I actually like this. - TheFourthWorld

Why all the hate?! It's a great movie, and NOT the worst of the franschie, The Last Crusade is! But anyway, this brought back Indiana Jones after 19 years! There's almost no bad things about this movie: this is the third best Indiana Jones movie, the setting is great! Having russians as villians was great! The main antanogist is great at sword fighting, and I did NOT expect it to have aliens! Here's my ranking on the Indiana Jones movies:

1: Raider's of the Lost Ark (10/10, masterpiece)
2: The Temple of Doom (9/10, awesomne)
3: The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (9/10, amazing)
4: The Last Crusade (6/10, good) - darthvadern

To be honest The Last Crusade was actually the best - ClimaxDome

I like it - PeeledBanana

24 Brother Bear
25 Bambi

Overrated. - ClimaxDome

@PeeledBanana This movie is still overrated. It's always brought up and people only mention the death of Bambi's mother. - ClimaxDome

26 Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The best Captain America movie - darthvadern

The best in the MCU

27 The Emoji Movie

Please revert my eyes back to it's factory setting

A troll wouldn't have put this on here.
