The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Come on, I enjoyed that JUST as much as I did the first one.

Eh, know that was a while ago, but not really sure what I was thinking of then.
I got round to watching "Ravenous" finally. That's one I'll need to hunt and buy. Kind of reminded me of those old Troma movies.

Ravenous was really good.  I rented in on a whim without any expectations and was surprised at how good the actual movie was in spite of the outlandish storyline.

WHAT?!? Troma?!? Troma makes artless s**t and is proud of it, Ravenous was a well crafted, well acted, well written peice of art. Just because the cannibalistic theme is presented in a humorous ways doesn't mean it compares with Troma flicks.

Sorry man, you can't help what it reminds you of I suppose, but that blew my mind. Last time I checked a Best Buy out they had Ravenous available for $5.99.

I always thought the much-maligned Six Days, Seven Nights was a decent comedy.

I finally got around to seeing Domino, and I thought it was pretty dreadful. It started off very well, but fell apart big time in the end. Does every Tony Scott have to end with the Altman equivalent to a shoot-out (other than Top Gun and Man on Fire I guess)?

Maverick. A hugely entertaining, pitch perfect, comedy western. I don't think anyone in it puts a foot wrong.

Also Assassins. The Stallone film. Never seems to get a mention anywhere. Always overlooked. 'Chit chat'.

Both Richard Donner films. (Only just thought of that after I'd posted the above). Coincidence?

Domino was pretty bad.  I don't know many people that really liked it, but it does seem to be the younger people on this board that enjoyed it.  I'm glad I didn't see it in theaters.  The trailer, though, was pretty enjoyable when it came out.

I thought Domino was great, I was dosing off a little though in the middle though, so I probably missed the bad parts.

Thought I'd revive this for a spot of fun.

After Hours (1985)
Scorsese's forgotten masterpiece. As he himself puts it, it is an independent picture, backed by the studio. Just funny. A nightmare as you feel for the protagonist and just can't imagine what else could go wrong for him.
Paul Hacket (Griffin Dunne) is a word processor. One evening after work, he goes to a coffee shop with his favourite book. There he meets Marcy (Rosanna Arquette), she lives in SoHo. He goes home, calls her right away and she invites him over. The nightmare-ish odyssey begins... Eccentric roomates to crazed mob chasing him in an ice cream truck, this is the worst night of Paul's life.

Even better than After Hours is Scorsese's other 'comedy' King of Comedy. Kind of like Taxi Driver lite.

I was going to mention it, but I haven't seen it yet. I can't find the DVD anywhere, so that doesn't help matters...

having read this thread I went and bought Ravenous which I enjoyed. Now I'm gonna go order Malcolm X cos it seems I missed that one.

my suggestion for an underrated film would be 'Very Bad Things'

Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story: One of my favorite movies of 2006. It got great reviews from critics, but it made barely any money and most people haven't even heard of it. Steve Coogan is the best comedian alive and this film proves it.

I agree.  I thought it was an excellent film.

I'd like to add Deep Rising to the list. Guilty pleasure. Pure fun.

October Sky - I absolutely adore this movie. I'm still stumped as to how this didn't receive any attention at the awards season. Brilliant uplifting film. Please do yourself a favour and see this movie.
