I would definitely have to agree with you on that one!

Also, this does have a high rating on IMDb, but other websites I visited said that the Chumscrubber was pretty bad (like Hollywoodvideo.com, for example), but I think that so far Chumscrubber is my favorite film of 2006 on DVD right now.

Hellboy

I saw this film theatrically, and to this day, there is a certain scene I cannot talk about without choking up.  It is one of the most heartbreaking, unforgettable scenes I've seen.  Strangely enough, I saw this with my sister who absolutely hated it and still brings it up to this day as the sort of film she doesn't like.

Several films that I feel are not well known or appreciated:

Das Experiment - Starring Moritz Bleibtreu of "Run Lola Run" and "In July", this German film just kicks ass!

Late Marriage - Wonderful Israeli film starring Lior Ashkenaza of "Walk on Water".

The United States of Leland

And Now. . .Ladies & Gentlemen. . . - Beautiful film by Claude Lelouche starring Jeremy Irons and Patricia Kaas.

The Duellists - My favorite Ridley Scott film.

The Last of Sheila - Brilliant (classic, in my eyes) whodunit.

The Man From Elysian Fields - Excellent film, including a fine performance from Mick Jagger.

Open Hearts - My #1 film from several years ago, this emotionally harrowing film stars the now ubiquitous Nikolaj Lie Kaas.

Seducing Dr. Lewis - A charming Canadian film.

I really loved Hellboy. Ron Pearlman was born to play Hellboy, and the action was great. I am really hoping del Toro does the sequal first before the rumored Halo movie. I hate to say it, but Hellboy is in my top 20, and is one of my favorite dvds I have.

I just watched that film. Why, when there are dozens of other films I could have watched, did I sit through that mess of a movie?  I had read somewhere that it had its moments but I kept looking for them as I groaned my way through the inept script, acting and direction...yikes! I hope you were kidding.  Brendan Fraser is a true money hound.

I didn't see it as insulting to disabled people. . .I saw it as the story of a character who sympathized for a particular diabled person and impulsively committed an act.  As he soon tells his mother, he knows it was wrong.

That's the first good movie to be listed in awhile.  Since we are going Spanish language, how about the Devil's Backbone?  I really like that more than I thought I would.

Monkeybone... god, where to begin with that film that hasn't been said?

Not Another Teen Movie is underrated now-a-days.

Without Limits. Billy Crudup and Donald Sutherland.

Not only underated but un-produced on DVD in the UK. I think there's a VHS out but it's a great film sadly unseen over here.

There's a nice 1981 picture that was slipped out on dvd in August with very little notice.  It's Arthur Penn's Four Friends and was one of Siskel and Ebert's two thumbs up picks back in '81.  Then there are a pair of somewhat noirish pictures, Anthony LaPaglia and Mimi Rogers in Bulletproof Heart, which hasn't been released on dvd yet, and Nicholas Cage and Dennis Hopper in Red Rock West.  These are both good films.

I've never seen this except for the clips shown during Metallica's video for "One".  Will this movie ever get a DVD release?

Both The Insider and Punch-Drunk Love are underrated but in my opinion the most underrated film of all is Eyes Wide Shut. I really think that in 30 years people will say that it was a masterpiece.

I have to go with Tears of the sun. Everyone that I know are split between liking it and hating it. Bruce Willis actually played the role perfectly and Cole Hauser was just amazing as Red. The action was also great especially the huge firefight at the end. I know there are a couple of flaws in the film but I think the good outweighs the bad in this case.

Absolutely true. I just sold my theatrical version of "Eyes Wide Shut" on Ebay in anticipation of the new Unrated version finally making its way to DVD this year in region 1.

I just picked up Empire of the Sun at Best Buy for 5 bucks today. Deal.

And Aaron, just break down and get a region free player, it's worth it, really, you could have that uncut Eyes Wide Shut in your hands right now.
