    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

    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.

    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.

  • Colin Searle

    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!

  • Dan Cole
    Dan Cole 6 months ago

    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.

    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.

    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

  • Andrew Gechter
    Andrew Gechter 10 months ago

    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?

    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.

    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 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

  • theunpossiblefile

    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.

    Meyoeritz(?) Stories was fantastic! People probably thought that it was another shit Sandler comedy.
    Hmm maybe A Cure for Wellness ain’t bad.

  • Enzo Rocha

    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.

  • Jaimi Cameron

    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.

    My Little Pony: The Movie ( 2017) is severely overlooked. Is it an amazing movie? No. But, it's still pretty good!

  • Alexandria Hill

    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.

  • Gustav Viking

    It Comes At Night and The Killing of A Sacred Deer were amazing

  • Yasemin BAHAR
    Yasemin BAHAR Year ago

    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.

  • Nick Mau

  • Omar García
    Omar García Year ago

    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.

  • Kristian David Torres Bautista

    The Florida Project...?

  • Sarah Sultan

  • Von Solo the Oldest Millennial

    +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.

  • Raphael Marquez
    Raphael Marquez Year ago

    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.
