Oscars 2014: Best Original Score Eligibles

We’re almost done with our shortlists. By my count, there are only four left that are to come out, including this one. And another one is right behind this, and will be posted soon. The other two I’m sure will be coming this week.

This is just another way of doing the same thing.

The difference between the two is, when I say something is underrated, I’m saying it’s better than you think it’s going to be, and in most cases, a really good movie. In this case, I just think that people ought to see these movies, whatever they think about them. Some of these are going to be very divisive. Some people won’t like some of these movies. I’m not telling you you’re going to like them. I’m saying you need to see them. These movies deserve an audience.

So here are the most underseen films of 2014: (more…)
