Outsiders is a good movie even if you didn't read the book; it almost completely copies the book word for word. That was then, this is now is a good movie too. Cadillac records is pretty popular but still a good movie. Love and Basketball, if u haven't already seen it. if u watch inuyasha, they have some pretty good movies as well as bleach.
Movies are all subjective. One man's Oscar winner is another man's worst movie of the year. But these are some of the best under-rated movies that I recommend:
Changeling (horror) In Bruges (crime) Hot Fuzz (comedy) The Lives Of Others (spy thriller) The Hoax (insanity drama) The Informant! (comedy drama) The Last King Of Scotland (historical fiction) Temple Grandin (biography) Goodbye Solo (bromance drama) A Prophet (crime drama) Exit Through The Gift Shop (ingenious documentary) I Love You Phillip Morris (crime comedy) American History X (Neo-Nazi drama) Smoke (Brooklyn drama) SLC Punk! (mockumentary comedy drama) Lucky Number Slevin (action thriller) The Visitor (drama)
DAYDREAM NATION. Must watch, came out in 2010. To my understanding, it is an independent film, but great movie. It stares Kat Dennings, Josh Lucas, and Reece Thompson. It will keep your attention the whole time. Hope you like it! (:
