Ravenous.

Fucking right, I JUST downloaded that movie cuz I hadn't seen it in forever, I still haven't watched it.  I think it is by far one of the most underrated movie because it's almost always completely overlooked.

And for the record, the best movies ever made are a tie between A Clockwork Orange and Aliens (not Alien).

The soundtrack to Ravenous alone makes it worth watching.

I know, I was looking for it on torrents a few days ago and couldn't find it.  I had it at one point years ago.

Dude, Alien blows loads all over Aliens.

Aliens has no imagination. It's "lets scare the kids by putting 100000000 aliens in the movie", totally over done.

Alien is subtle and terrifying.

A agree that Alien is a spectacular movie but I think Aliens is better because it is just as scary, has better characters, way better SFX which were some of the best of the good old days before CGI ruined the illusion of being IN the movie, more memorable scenes and quotes, and some of the best execution of action and suspense thanks to James Cameron.  And I think Ridley Scott had a fluke with Alien (and maybe Blade Runner).  Yeah, Aliens is fucking better.  One of the few sequels that can do that.

The only sequels that were better (in my very humble opinion) have been Mad Max II & The Empire Strikes Back.

But if you think Aliens > Alien, then fair enough.

eXistenZ! I actually saw that in this local indie theater here. Crazy fucking cool.

Children of Men.

Add Spiderman 2 and X-Men 2 to that list.

Existenz is spectacular and another overlooked and underrated movie.  It supposedly got shit because the assholes who marketed it compared it to The Matrix which is absolutely retarded as they are nothing alike.  I don't know what kinda drugs they were on but according to that logic you could compare those two movies to The Neverending Story because they all take place in a fantasy world.  Not to mention Existenz is far superior to The Matrix.  IMO Cronenberg is a genius and can do no wrong.....well, except for that borefest Eastern Promises.  He pushed the envelope from Shivers to A History Of Violence and then that came out of left field.  I'll just try to forget that Cronenberg made it, like I forgot about wtf Eastern Promises was about. 

And FUCK Children Of Men.  WTF.  The reason why I hated it so much was because of how awesome it was, building this tension and waiting for the pay off....THEN THE FUCKING CREDITS ROLL.  I saw it with my ex and we were both like, WTF was that and were pretty fucking pissed.  Actually we had the same reaction to Broken Flowers.  I think she yelled at the screen on that one, hah.

The second star wars movie was, and still is, the best
Loaded-Gun.com - I don't know what the hell they are talking about or why they are even there. They don't make serious points and they don't joke, but they still manage to make a lot of posts somehow.

I am shocked that I am the first to give it up for the Big Lebowski.
I'd also mentioned Repo Man and They Live as under-appreciated.

This thread confuses me.  Especially since half the movies listed so far weren't made in the 20th century.

Big Lebowski was one of the best comedies ever made.  I was very impressed with Burn After Reading also.  The same convoluted type of story and almost as good as Big Lebowski.  There Will Be Blood was fantastic.  The whole thing about which was better movie of the year, that or No Country For Old Men was interesting because I think TWBB was much better than NCFOM.  I was very let down by it.  Don't get me wrong, it was great, but there was so much hype and the movie just didn't live up to something like Fargo.

Oh, I'm gonna say great movies of the 20th and 21st century.  I'm going to try and list some overlooked movie than some obvious ones, like every tarantino movie for example, do I even have to mention those?

Metal: A Headbanger's Journey     
Dawn Of The Dead
Martin
Donnie Darko
Full Metal Jacket
In Bruges
Frailty
Ghost Dog - The Way of the Samurai
In the Mouth of Madness
Vanilla Sky (This seems to be a love or hate, and yeah I know it's a remake and I don't care to see the original because I enjoyed this one so much)
Being John Malkovich
Adaptation (The whole concept of the movie was fucking brilliant, and it seems a lot of people didn't understand it)
Office Space
Superbad (I would have to vote this as the funniest movie I've ever seen, I was fucking dying through the whole thing)
