    I just went to rewatch Body of Lies when I saw it's Rotten Tomatoes rating. It's a film I would rank in my top 30...yet it got absolutely wrecked by critics and audiences alike.

    https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/10009225-body_of_lies/

    Do you know of any movies like that?

    Why do you like them and why do you think they got a bad review?

    Being made prior to 9/11 I think maybe it seemed far fetched. Seeing it after only makes it eerily prophetic in many ways.

    13% on Rotten Tomatoes.

    100% in my book.

    Alien 3 definitely. Especially the director cut.

    I don't know if it necessarily is what you're talking about because it did get very good reviews but Jackie Brown is definitely overlooked. It's sandwiched between Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill in Tarantino's filmography so it's understandable but Jackie is great in its own right.

    One of the best date flicks ever. Unintentionally hilarious.

    Caveman. It was just one of those childhood movies that I liked. I recall one Saturday back in the early 90's, either '90 or '91, Caveman was on followed by Die Hard. How about that for a Saturday morning lineup.

    Cobra with Sylvester Stallone. Good choice.
