    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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 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.

    +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 9 months 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.

    The Florida Project? I guess it's so overlooked that you didn't even mention it

    • Max Messmer
      Max Messmer 9 months ago

      "Praise and nominations by the oscars and golden globes"
      Ha! First of all, it's not getting nominationS (plural). It is getting ONE nomination and is being overlooked in every other category, so the film itself is not praised at all. Only Willem Defoe is. Also, the Oscars and Golden Globes weren't out by the time of this video. You can argue that he liked the other films more or that he didn't see The Florida Project, but you cannot possibly defend The Florida Project not being overlooked.

      It would be easy. He didn't even mention all of the great overlooked films, but he somehow had time to mention a lot of mediocre overlooked films.

    The killing of a sacred deer reminded me of Kubrick in a lot of ways. The way it was shot, the zooms, pans and tracking shots, the lighting and the music, it all was very Kubrick.

    Can anyone help me out finding the name of a movie? I only recall that Chris mentioned that he liked the cinematography, it was sort of an indie horror film and sadly the director has passed away before it's release. I remember wanting to watch it but now I can't find in anymore. Would be great is someone has a hint:)
