So, yesterday dealt with the most overrated films of the year, today we’ll be dealing with the most underrated films of the year.
Since tomorrow I’ll be talking about the most underseen films of the year, I’m going to have to specify just exactly what I’m talking about when I say underrated. And that is — I’m not basing it on how many people saw the films, but rather — the general reception they got. Some films either got mixed reviews and were generally ignored by people or tossed aside as what they appear to be, or they were enjoyed, but no one really sat down and said, “You know what — that’s actually a really great movie.” Or, in certain cases, films were compared to other films in the filmmaker’s filmography, and might have been thought of well, but they weren’t really truly considered for what they were. And I’ll try to specify with each film as I go along.
Generally, the idea here is — here are 15 films from 2013 that are films that are actually either a lot better than people are giving them credit for, or are films that are actually gonna be ones that really hold up as being real quality films from this year that not enough people are giving proper dues to at the present time.
