'North Country': Oscar no, pompous yes.
  • I haven't seen the film. This is CNN's review, and they may or may not be right about this particular film, but they have a good point when they say: "Around this time of year -- like a visit from the flu bug -- Hollywood is bitten by a severe case of B.O.B, 'Blatant Oscar Bid.'"

A Decade Of Underrated Movies
  • Worst list ever?
  • There are some terrific films on the list, but they aren't generally underrated at all. Any list of the "most underrated" has to start with "just what is the current rating" and/or "underrated by whom?"
  • Since he did not establish any kind of baseline, he ends up with some films on the list which are already rated high by everyone. Office Space is just out of the Top 250 of all time with a 7.7 at IMDb, and received 76% positive reviews. If it is substantially underrated, then its correct rating is as the best film ever made. My estimation is that it is rated just about where it should be - as one of the highest rated comedies of all-time. It's rated a half-point higher than There's Something About Mary, and a half-point lower than Duck Soup. If anything, that might make it a tad overrated!
  • Dead Man is about the same by both measurements. So who is underrating it? American Psycho is only a bit lower at 6.9 and 64%, and is highly respected by many analysts. Starship Troopers is also strong at 6.7, 60%. Dark Blue is 6.6, The Underneath is 6.4, Mr. Jealousy 6.2. All seem to be in approximately the right place.
  • I'm surprised he doesn't have Casablanca on the list.
  • You may feel that the other three films on the list are overrated if you believe they are good, because the general consensus is that they are not very good. Undefeated is rated 5.6, Josie and the Pussycats 5.3, The Brown Bunny 5.1. I'll let you draw your own conclusions about whether those films are truly good, and therefore overrated, or whether in some cases they may even be poor films, and thus actually overrated by posterity's assignment of mediocrity.
