    3 Billboards for sure is underrated and overhated. It’s a really good movie about complex and often unlikable characters. People wanted simple brain dead moralizing about how racism is wrong and that makes me groan everytime I think about it. I hate how so many people watch movies today. They want hand holding garbage.

    That’s literally it. Plus, the movie not being about racism at all but rather about misplaced anger and empathy was something people didn’t even notice. I once saw a video on YouTube claiming that Three Billboards was the wrong way to discuss racism when that was never what the movie attempted to do. You literally can’t make this shit up.

    The Favourite should’ve swept the year. A lot of attention is just for Colman’s performance and the script but it was honestly a masterpiece. Every single part- acting , directing, screenplay, cinematography, editing, costumes, score and production design were perfect!

    Chicago >>> all the other 2002 girlies 💋

    The Two Towers should have won in my opinion. It was an ACHIEVEMENT, not a movie

    Yeah, both The Two Towers and The Pianist were leagues ahead of Chicago.

    I agree, though I still would’ve given directing, cinematography and production design to Roma.

    Also as an answer to the original question : The King’s Speech.
    Regardless on your opinion on the monarchy or who you think should’ve won, the film was an instant classic. It’s a really great film that simply lacked the avant-garde of The Social Network, Inception and Black Swan.

    I also think Birdman is severely underrated. I think it’s by far one of the greatest pieces of film-making of the last decade.

    The Artist.

    Yeah I said it. Nothing else nominated deserved to win except films that didn’t even make it close. The best films were Melancholia or Take Shelter. Young Adult and We Need to Talk About Kevin are also great but of course, neither came close.
    No, not The Tree of Life because it is just a collage, it really annoys me when people compare it to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Clearly they need to rewatch both.

    This 100% the performances in that film were incredible too.

    The Lion in Winter is really only ever remembered for Katharine Hepburn’s performance, but the movie itself is actually incredible. Its laugh-out loud hilarious at times, but also heartbreaking in others, and overall it’s technically well-done. Btw, that shouldve been Anthony Hopkins first Oscar nomination, like 25 years earlier than The Silence of the Lambs.

    Anne of the Thousand Days is just a really entertaining movie that I greatly enjoyed. I don’t know how people think it’s boring. Definitely worthy of a nomination.

    People don’t hate on Broadcast News, and it’s not like it’s even forgotten about, but I still think it’s underrated. One of the best of all time.

    Forrest Gump is a classic and its haters can live a life without joy.

    Titanic will obviously always be remembered, and I do think it is still respected although over the years people have pointed to L.A. Confidential, but it needs to be pointed out how much of a masterpiece, a monumental triumph, it is. Its like LotR scale (or 1/3, but you know what I mean).

    Shakespeare in Love is a brilliant movie. Sure, not as good as Saving Private Ryan, but still awesome.

    Finding Neverland is such a good, nice, easy watch and it’s so touching. Stop being cynical and just love these types of movies for what they are.

    Crash is good. Maybe even great. Just because it won over something better doesn’t strip it of that.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is like Forrest Gump with a twist. It’s awesome! Get over yourselves!

    Avatar is more than a video game. It is an achievement a la Titanic. Sorry not sorry.

    The Blind Side: Read Finding Neverland.

    The Artist: Read Finding Neverland.

    The Help: Read Finding Neverland.

    Silver Linings Playbook: Read Finding Neverland.

    The Wolf of Wall Street: Read Finding Neverland.

    The Imitation Game: Read Finding Neverland.

    Spotlight is fantastic and I don’t understand how it has been so hated over the recent years.

    Bridge of Spies is just a classic-type movie and it’s so nice to watch.

    Brooklyn is sooooo underrated, easily top 5 of the year (and that is saying something because I LOVED 2015).

    The Martian: ditto Brooklyn.

    Room is great so yeah.

    I’ve gotten lazy. Here are others:

    Hacksaw Ridge, Hidden Figures, La La Land, The Shape of Water, Green Book, Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody, A Star Is Born, Vice, 1917, Ford v Ferrari, Little Women, Marriage Story, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Mank, The Trial of the Chicago 7.

    Sorry it’s so long but anyway I wanted to say two things.

    One: I realized a lot of mine are crowdpleasing movies that aren’t about something super important. I think we need to start appreciating those movies more. 12 Years a Slave and Nomadland are more powerful, but those movies aren’t automatically worse because of that (bad examples because these are two of the best of the decade but you get my point). If they are still showing something fundamentally human and making you feel something and entertaining you, they’re good.

    Two: it’s so refreshing to see no arguing or hating and everybody just letting everyone else say their opinion and stuff. I like to see it and I commend everyone on this topic!

    In addition to this, hurt locker is very good and Bigelow deserved the director win.

    I think Mudbound was underrated.  The ensemble’s acting and the cinematography were particularly outstanding, and I’m still annoyed the film didn’t receive a best picture nomination.

    It’s underrated for sure. Would’ve liked to see Carey Mulligan and Jason Mitchell (not Clarke, he’s lowkey the worst in the movie) nominated alongside Blige
