As a compliment to the Over-hyped movie thread, how about some movies that you feel were under-hyped or under-appreciated?
Perhaps people (and critics) blasted it unfairly (in you opinion), or maybe it's a film that wasn't a big hit, but those who have seen it really like it.
Or maybe it's just a movie you like and nobody else does.
Leon (international uncut version) - While the American verion (The Professional) was good, the uncut version was quite a bit better. Gary Oldman is over the top, Jean Reno is probably at his best, and Natalie Portman shines in her first role. Reno is Leon, an assassin who takes Mathilda (Portman) under his wing and trains her after her family is murdered by a crooked cop (Oldman).
The new Leon anniversary DVD is the uncut version I believe.
Ghost World - This was on quite a few critics "Best of" lists when it was released, but few people saw it. It's a comedy starring Scarlet Johansen and Thora Birch, based on the indie comic. It's pretty hard to describe, but I'll try. After Rebecca and Enid graduate high school, neither really has a plan for life other than getting jobs and moving out. Their friendship strains as Enid drags her feet and meets a new friend (Steve Buscemi).
Hey, it's not the best description, but its a start.
Daredevil: Director's Cut - This didn't recieve too much attention when it was released a few months ago, but the new cut makes it a much better movie, adding nearly 30 minutes in a subplot about Matt defending an innocent man, played by Coolio (yes, Coolio). There are also a few other cuts and additions here and there, like more Bullseye, and a longer fight with the Kingpin, plus the cutting of the pointless Matt and Elektra sex scene.
Apt Pupil - Brian Singer directed thriller, based on a Stephen King short story about a high school kid (Brad Renfro) that discovers one of his neighbors (Ian McKellen) is a Nazi war criminal. Best Buy has it in their bargain racks for $6.
Enemy at the Gates - The critical World War II battle of Stalingrad between the Germans and Russians is the backdrop for a game of cat and mouse played by a Russian and German sniper (Jude Law and Ed Harris). While based on a true story, it is heavily dramatized (some people even say much of it never even happened!).
Rules of Engagement - Tommy Lee Jones defends Samuel L Jackson, who is accused of opening fire on an unarmed crowd during an embassy evacuation if the Middle East. Great performances by both Jones and Jackson. Both a war movie and a legal thriller.
