    Any there any movies you watched that you though deserved more credit somehow? Or they didn't get enough recognition for either the story line or the acting?

    A couple for me are below. Alot of people I ask seemed to not have seen the first one especially:


    A Time To Kill - Matthew McConaugheny, Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson
    A Time to Kill (1996) - IMDb
    Amazing acting on all parts, they seemed to fit perfect. The plot and ending is eye opening and deals with racism. Very difficult to watch what happened to the little girl though and her suffering. And ticks ya off about many things including the KKK.

    Alive - Ethan Hawke
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alive_(1993_film)
    Based on a true story. Intense all the way through. I couldn't even imagine or know what I would do unless in the situation.

    Dune (1984) really got slammed by critics.
    Punch Drunk Love, I liked.
    Lost in Translation I thought was fab.
