    Eddie and the Cruisers, not saying it's a masterpiece by any means, but still underrated.

    Stir of Echos, didn't do much that I recall at the BO, but I thought it was pretty good.

    I love love love this movie, but I am rather certain most others would say 'hmmmm. o-kaaaaaaay.'

    And btw, you guys are giving me some ideas! I really hope I can find Last Night somewhere, sounds AWEsome.
    i love dancer in the dark!! it's wonderful and yes, it's over the top but it's also fantastically original. who else but lars von trier would mix tearjerker and musical?
    was it underrated though? i remember it got great reviews and was pretty popular, at least over here.


    and i agree about 'river's edge'. that movie's been completely forgotten and it's a shame

    Here was pretty much unheard of. I only found out about it through a friend who is another Bjork fan.

    Got another one - Shaun of the Dead, an absolutely brilliantly hilarious movie which is not at all ridiculous as the title would suggest. I heard it was quite popular in the UK, but here in the States it was more of an underground thing. Cannot emphasize enough the magnitude of how much I love this movie, I could (and have) watch it over and over again.

    I loved The Station Agent. Great performances and somehow it just got under my skin.

    Map of the Human Heart -- it came out in the early 90s. I just loved it.

    I LOVED Shaun of the Dead. It was SO good. I didn't realize that it was a flop here, most people I know saw it in theaters.

    Loved Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang with Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer. I thought it was hilarious, had to watch it a few times to catch all the one-liners.

    Just been shopping in my local Asda - Walmart to our US friends - bought a movie that went straight to video here - Last of the Dogmen with Tom Berenger and Barbara Hershey. I LOVE that film.

    I have to agree with who ever said Dogfight, the game and the thin red line
    also :
    -To die for (Ncole Kdman and a very young Joaquin Phoenix)
    -The beautiful country (Nick Nolte)
    -swimming with sharks (Kevin Spacey)
    -Hero (Dustin Hoffman, Andy Garcia, Geena Davis..I can't help it, I always laugh hysterically when i see this movie )
    -Nurse betty ( the only movie with Renee Zellweger that I actually like)
    -election ( Reese Witherspoon was just hilarious in this movie)
    -In the company of wolves ( a beautiful old movie by Neil Jordan, had an interesting take on little red riding hood)
    -Go!(Sara Polley,Katie Holmes)
