* ''Film/TheElementOfCrime'': [[Creator/LarsVonTrier Lars von Trier's]] debut movie, a dark, DeliberatelyMonochrome, [[PsychologicalThriller psychological crime thriller]] which simultaneously {{Homage}}s and [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructs]] FilmNoir, set in the [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] CrapsackWorld of post-WorldWarII, [[SceneryGorn destroyed beyond recognition Germany]], with elements of DieselPunk and MindScrew, shot in a style that is essentially GermanExpressionism turned {{up to eleven}}. The result is [[UpToEleven darker than]] ''Film/BladeRunner''. One of the most neglected films of TheEighties.

* ''Film/TheFall''. I can't even fathom how the director pulled this movie off with ''no CGI whatsoever''. Just about any scene in the film could be framed and put in an art museum. It's ''that'' beautiful. Then you take into account that shooting took 4 years, over 20 countries, and the film becomes a miracle.

* The films of James Gunn. Though often a critically well-received writer and director, his films always seem to end up falling through the cracks or get screwed by the studio with no advertising or because his films aren't very mainstream.\\

* ''Wish Upon a Star'', an underrated 1996 film that aired several times on Disney Channel throughout the late 1990s, and puts a 1990s spin on the FreakyFridayFlip trope. Starring [[Series/GreysAnatomy Katherine Heigl]] and [[Franchise/{{Halloween}} Danielle Harris]] as two sisters who magically swap bodies after a titular WishUponAStar comes true, they first use it to sabotage each other in school before learning to appreciate and help out each other.

It's a funny film with tons of heart as the characters mature.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Film/Heartbreakers}}'' made money at the Box Office but it's hardly remembered. A real shame because it features three great performances from actors PlayingAgainstType (Sigourney Weaver as a conning seductress, Jennifer Love Hewitt as her abrasive daughter and Jason Lee as the OnlySaneMan in the cast). It's a genuinely funny movie with a fun story, great gags and a great deconstruction of AllMenArePerverts.
* ''Film/ARoyalNightOut'' is a fun 'what if' scenario about Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret going out to celebrate on VE Night. It's not exactly historically accurate but the RuleOfFunny is in full swing. Picture how much funny it is when the resident HardDrinkingPartyGirl is the ''princess'' (and the familiar stumbling home at dawn to disapproving parents happens at ''Buckingham Palace''). Also features some genuine SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments regarding the recreation of the VE celebrations - and some stellar performances from Sarah Gadon, Jack Reynor and ''especially'' Bel Powley.

* A few Hitchcock films that are in need of more love, ''Film/{{Lifeboat}}'' and ''Theatre/{{Rope}}''.

* ''Film/NorthByNorthwest''. Plenty of people know ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' and ''Film/TheBirds'', but since [=NbN=] wasn't so much a horror / suspense / thriller as an action / adventure / spy parody / comedy / suspense amalgam (put together ''seamlessly,'' I might add), and since most people aren't willing to hunt it down, it ends up quite neglected, except by film aficionados, and film students.
** Perhaps in need of even more love, ''Film/{{Lifeboat}}'' and ''Theatre/{{Rope}}''.

* ''Film/SonOfTheMask'' gained a considerable notoriety for its {{sequelitis}} and [[SpecialEffectFailure poor special effects]], but it works fine as a standalone film as well as a love letter to Creator/TexAvery and other golden age cartoonists, and there's a ''ton'' of moments that are ActuallyPrettyFunny.

And how could we forget about Alan Cumming's performance as Loki?

* ''Film/TheThinRedLine''. Specifically, the 1998 one, directed by Creator/TerrenceMalick. Though it did make back nearly half it's budget, the reason it is on here is because it's [[DuelingMovies main competitor]], ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'', is more well known, and considered by some to be the better film. While it did get modest reviews, and was nominated for several UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s, it won none, losing some to the aforementioned ''Saving Private Ryan''. Some consider it to be Malick's MagnumOpus. The film takes the trope WarIsHell UpToEleven, and often adds philosophical narrations based around said trope. It also features an AllStarCast, who all give outstanding performances. Though it could be a few minutes too long, if you want a war film that will have you moved, riveted, [[TakeAThirdOption or both]], this is for you.

* ''Film/{{Roxanne}}'', a hysterically funny and cute romantic comedy from the late 80s. It's a surprisingly good modernized retelling of the play ''CyranoDeBergerac'', starring SteveMartin and DarylHannah. It was nominated for a Golden Globe for Martin's leading role, and is described by critics to this day as one of his funniest performances ever.
