    Your favorite underappreciated movie

    Got in this discussion with some friends tonight.

    I have 3 of them:

    Big Fish
    The Iron Giant
    Bottle Rocket


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Big Fish is not a bad choice. What is the standard of underappreciated? Small box office?

    What, are you 12? Just kidding. Bottle Rocket is good, and I have kids, so can appreciate Iron Giant. One of my favorites that fits this category is "Where the Buffalo Roam".

    It's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas before "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas".

    good call. Bill Murray as the good doctor. It covers a lot more of Hunter's work as well.

    true but bill murray is not even close in this role once you watch fear and loathing. depp nailed that role, much like he does most all of the ones he chooses, and benicio is the perfect compliment. usually when you read a book, then they make a movie out of it, you are left disappointed by the movie. fear and loathing is the exact opposite-the movie only enhanced the book.

    I was going to put Memento on my list. Fantastic movie. I think Donnie Darko is also a great movie that kind of flew under the radar.

    As long as we're talking about Bill Murray, I'm going to throw out "The Life Aquatic" as my favorite underappreciated movie. Murray was flat out awesome in that. Very understated and subtle. The cast was great. Visually very cool. And the music was fantastic. (David Bowie FTW)
