king arthur needs the extended cut that should have been shown
Alien: Covenant is one of my favorite science fiction/horror films ever, so is Prometheus! Great acting, great stories, intriguing themes and conflicts, great action, great scores, not to mention that they're both some of the most visually stunning and beautiful looking films I've seen in my life! The horror elements in them are so chilling and so white knuckled, its insane. And Chris is right about its flaws, and its strengths, and like he said, the level and sheer amount of venomous hatred that this film got is not entirely deserved. Hell I have a brother that says that both Prometheus and Alien: Covenant are awful films, that they are garbage, that they ruin the original Alien which he says is one of the greatest films ever made. But here's the thing, he's admittedly never seen Prometheus, nor has he ever seen the original Alien at all, but he has seen/only watches purely negative reviews and videos on Prometheus and Alien: Covenant and purely positive reviews and videos for Alien. In fact I've seen a negative review from GeekyGlassesTV for Alien: Covenant where they start bringing up things that where never actually in the real movie, like how the Neomorph spores are the origin of the Xenomorph. They're not, there is nothing in the film that infers that connection, and there is no way you could reach that conclusion if you actually cared about getting the story right and telling the truth. It was a lie. Straight up lying about the film to make it look bad! Also, Angry Joe, "worse than Alien Resurrection and AVP Requiem", seriously? Not to mention that 50% of the thumbnails for negative reviews of Alien: Covenant are always just the critic face palming with the words "IT SUCKS!", which really shows you that they are looking at the film from an objective lens. I'm not saying you can't have a different opinion, but please make sure your thought process is clear and that your coming at it it from an objective and rational viewpoint. Don't just hop on the Bandwagon, don't just take other peoples word for it, go see these movies yourself, have an open mind, develop your own opinion about a film, and be independent!
you could let us know when a movie was "fine" and when it was "great" when talking about underrated films… with some text maybe
Damn, a lot of very bad movies in this video...
Is Chris doing one for 2018
2017 was an incredible year for movies.
Alien Covenant was the literal ship of fools, none of the human characters shouldn't have been doing anything more complicated than driving automated cars...
A Cure For Wellness
Please do a review for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs it may be the first A+ movie in 2018 😉
Yeah no, Personal Shopper was a piece of shit. The tonal shifts were annoying, the story was bland, and Kristen Stewart still can't act for her life, I don't know how she keeps getting work.
Check out skate kitchen very underrated
Guys you need to watch brigsby bear! Such a wholesome film
I wasn't sure if I should watch Alien: Covenant. After you said you "really liked Prometheus"....I'm never going to watch Covenant.
A Cure For Wellness was great. But don't get me started on Alien Covenant "you blow, I'll do the fingering." hahaha David is overrated too.
I thought 'A Cure for Wellness', 'Ghost in the Shell' and 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer' were all very good.
I look forward your review and to get Stuckmanized. PLEASE show names or posters of all the movies to see the names. Thks!!!
alien covenant...what a sad piece of shit
Ghost in the Shell live action is alright. Not bad
Alien convinent was good.
The killing of a sacred deer is the most underrated film of 2017.
OK. I panicked & thought people might actually think I thought MOVIE 43 was a work of genius. I was kidding. It was a joke. God help me, I'm so sorry!
Did you review PROMETHEUS? Because you might be able to explain it to me. As so many others have tried. Because I hated it. Not quite with a red hot passion, but pretty close.But I loved THE WITCH & SNOWPIERCER as you did. So maybe you could explain to me why the cream of Earths scientists in PROMETHEUS are so goddamn stupid.Love your stuff. Even when I disagree with it. For example MOVIE 43 was a work of genius. But I respect your opinion
Your "That was ok." Is how I felt about Jurasic World. Then Jurassic World 2 was (for me) fabulous! So I understood your reaction.
please review 'Elizabeth Harvest' (2018). i think Sebastian Gutierrez is overlooked as a writer and director. thanks
What about the last Jedi or mother
It comes at night would have been better had it had a different title and a different preview.
Thanks for all these interesting heads-ups about movies that went under the radar. I watched your best movies of 2017 and knew all of them and had seen at least 50%. I then watched your worst movies of 2017 and found that I'd not even heard of 80% of them (which probably makes sense). But this list is really intriguing; I've only seen a couple and you've piqued my interest. I'm a big fan of your reviews. All the best.
Short List:Under-rated: Blade Runner 2049Over-looked: AHA! OBVIOUSLY BLACK PANTHER!
I genuinely disliked Killing of a Sacred Deer. Sure it was artsy, had excellent cinematography and acting but on the surface the actual plot and ending was just awful.
can you please do a columbus spoiler review
Going to watch super dark times, taking your recommendation.
Hostiles. Everything about that film is underrated. It explores the 'aftermath' similar to Logan and Christian Bale was phenomenal.
I think the most underrated movie of the year was stronger with jake gyllenhall, this movie was so amazing with one of the best performances from jake, especially the scene in the car good lord, not really anybody is talking about, as one of the best it made me cry, smile, and feel thankful for what I had, it was just amazing and I can’t believe people don’t see that here
in the first part you didn't even talk about one movie you thought was that good/truly underrated. what's the point of talking bout "underrated" ones if don't have movies to mention you really liked/loved? to show that you sometimes, kinda disagree with critics?
Super dark times is one of the best films I've seen in years! I highly recommend it
Alien covenant just wasn't for me. It has some good stuff like David and Walter but everything else is just kinda bad.
Why does he look a lot like Chris Pratt??
Roman J Israel is the definition of a completely generic,mediocre film that gets by on the strength of it's lead performances. You take that away,it's a very inconsequential film. Sorry.Loved A Cure For Wellness,though.
MEGAN LEAVEY!! That film took me by surprise and had me crying tears of joy! I will champion this film to anyone.
Anime fan boys ruin every movie review. They should all die.
Just a big thank you for all your work. I find your reviews far more honest than most other critics. I very seldom disagree with your reviews, and even when I do, I realize it's more about personal taste. I love that you have added this extra insight into overlooked movies. Have seen most and agree entirely with your summarizations. When trolls simply hate on movies like Ghost in the Shell simply for the sake of it, or because they hate a particular franchise, it is so annoying, but then I turn to one of your honest reviews. You seem to understand the work that goes into movies and all involved and give them kudos, yet still thoughtfully review. The best movie reviewer on TVclip hands down. So Thank you Chris.
I didn't expect you picked A Silent Voice on your video and I gotta say, I FUCKING LOVE THIS MOVIE! It's so good it srsly deserves an award for best animated films of the year. I even got emotional throughout this movie
A dogs purpose. 33 percent on rotten tomatoes my foot.
the little hours?
i loved king arthur its just so energetic but not in a generic way. Bought that once it hit google play, really sucks that critics trashed it
I think Ghost in the Shell was just dated and the philosophical aspect was grossly dumbed down
I liked Ghost in the Shell.
I really wish someone could explain what makes a movie pretentious or thought-provoking. Like what about a movie puts it in one of the two categories.
King Arthur was good,by far the best on list however Covenant was Horrible,do people really wanna see Fastbender gay porn?cause that wat this movie felt like
Good selection of films. Bravo to Denzel & Roman J Israel. Would not see the Morgan Freeman movie. Personal Shopper was great. Only Living Boy In NY much better than average. Killing Of Sacred Deer was one of the strangest ever made.
I really didn't like okja
Devil’s Candy wasn’t even scary! Meyoeritz(?) Stories was fantastic! People probably thought that it was another shit Sandler comedy.Hmm maybe A Cure for Wellness ain’t bad.
very good mentions here chris, glad to see u aint box office obsessed like some people just to boost their views up ffs
Will you review The Florida Project??
I really loved Gifted. I picked it up from the red box, didn't know anything about it and had never heard of it before and it was really enjoyable. It's hard to find a good drama these days.
How do you spell the 2nd. one, with Dustin Hoffman and Ben Stiller ?
A ghost story, a real super boring movie. F-
John Cho is supremely underrated.
You should at the least pin the comment of people who take the time and effort to list the films you mention, since it's apparently a chore for you. Most youtube guys post a list in the description section, by the way, but I'm guessing you're too busy to do that for your audience. So, an alternative would be a pin--saves you the time and effort, and your fans and visitors would really appreciate it. Not that hard, really, and a win-win for you.
The Greatest Showman!! Definitely underrated by critics. You should review it.
Alright guys if you enjoy movie reviews or movie talk, head over to our podcast channel where we've recently named top upcoming movies of 2018!
Pretty good list although I'm surprised to hear that you were leaning more towards no when it came to "It Comes at Night". I loved it, I just felt the marketing was atrocious and turned moviegoers off a bit.The film was shot beautifully with very haunting sequences, most notably the red door. The characters felt real as did the entire concept of the film; I feel like not knowing what was infecting people or where it originated played well into this sense of realism as well. It was a great exploration of humanity or lack thereof upon the precipice of extinction.
The Foreigner was great. Spot on.
I fell to sleep during Alien Covenant and also loved it comes at knight
FUCK THAT KING ARTHUR WAS SOOOOO FUCKING BAD! U JUST WANNA GET BUTT FUCKED BY CHARLIE
Titles, please. On the screen, and underneath. Thank you.
Chris have you heard about the moist meter?
I liked the Foreigner
There are overrated movies, but there are no underrated movies.
Verónica, a Spanish horror film directed by Paco Plaza should be on this list, amazing movie.
Okja was a brilliant movie
1) Colossal2) The Lost City of Z3) Loving Vincent4) Battle of the Sexes5) American Made6) Hostiles
My Little Pony: The Movie ( 2017) is severely overlooked. Is it an amazing movie? No. But, it's still pretty good!
I watched The Killing Of A Sacred Deer with my parents and I just couldn't get over how strange and confusing it was. I guess it was okay, it is interesting, the acting is good but I don't think I'd watch it a second time.
It Comes At Night and The Killing of A Sacred Deer were amazing
I surprisingly liked Meyerowitz and the great dialogue even though i’m not usually a fan of Sandler. I could never watch killing of the sacred deer because the lobster traumatized me. I also loved Gifted, and enjoyed OKJA and to the bone. There should be an overrated films of the year as well.(I’d definitely put Ladybird on there. It was like a Hallmark movie only worse and actually boring unless I completely missed something. Maybe even Call Me By Your Name not because it’s not a good movie with decent visuals but b’c it’s a little shallow which only makes it good, not great.
I just watched Only The Brave last night and never remember seeing any talk about it. Did you see it, Chris? I'd be interested in hearing your take on it. I thought it was really moving and that the film did an amazing job of building characters.
I'm so glad you mentioned Columbus! That movie really stuck with me
Alien was retarded.
Hey Chris, let's collaborate on a found footage movie about the Loch Ness Monster! I want you to produce and star in it.
I think Valerian and the city of a thousand planets was pretty good.
A Ghost Story, waste of time and money boring movies that doesnt need to exist at all.
There was a lot of hate for A Cure for Wellness, but I liked it and much about it that was very cool.
Shot Caller!!!!!!!!! Review it!!!!! It’s better than the ratings which are about a 7.4/10
This is basically just like OH LOOK WAS GOOD FILM I WILL DESCRIBE WHAT CRITICS THOUGHT INSTEAD OF THE PLOT NOW
I’m really, really disappointed no one saw or talked about, On Body and Soul. Probably because it was a low key Hungarian indie film, but it’s very accessible on Netflix. It’s so moving and the cinematography and acting are unconventionally beautiful.
The Florida Project...?
I loved a lot of the movies you mentioned and there are definitely one's that are added to the list, but I was wondering if you could review the movie "My Friend Dahmer" because it sounds like a good storyline but has been getting mixed reviews
The Florida Project
Chris have you reviewed florida project yet?
Carlos Conesa Carbonell best movie of the year imo
He hasn't, right? And it's easily my favorite.
The Only Living Boy in New York is so fucking bad haha
+Chris Stuckmann Somebody else loved PROMETHEUS!?!? All I ever hear negativity about that movie, I fucking LOVED it, you can see something new & new connections every time you watch it. As far as the ALIEN lore goes, it’s my favorite, & it doesn’t even have any aliens(Xenomorphs) in it. That is an incredible feat in prequel storytelling. Covenant disappointed me, but it’s indications are very promising.
Chris watch suberbicon!
I don't understand why u can't review all the movies u see? to provide more content. As a critic isn't it important to give your opinion on every movie u watch instead of picking which ones to review
I loved Battle of the Sexes, but it seems no one else really saw it
The cure for welness was great
So after i watched this movie wit denziel washington was awsome he didnt stop being him
The My Little Pony movie is another example of an overlooked/underrated film of 2017. Critics trashed it because of the negative stigma the franchise has as being a "girl franchise" even though the current show it's based on has content that appeals to all ages and genders. Not to mention, it's in 2D when people complain about the dominance of CG-animated films.
