PS Abbey I loved "Overboard", very funny movie as was "Office Space"
I think instead of aclaim this thread should be what movies should be more popular then they are because a few of the movies that are listed are highly praised movies (United Flt 93, 28 days later) and a few are oscar nominees or winners or they won other awards as well aka Blade Runner and The Last of the Mohicans
Convince me. It's not just awards, but the public did not buy into these movies. That is what I'm getting at.
If you do convince me, I'll change the title.
28 Days Later did get some acclaim when it came out, but it didn't do well, and it did not get the respect it rightfully deserves. This is just my opinion, of course, but I think it deserves a place among the best horror films ever made (The Exorcist, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, etc.). Besides, I don't really care about what critics thought, or "national acclaim" or whatever.
Ah but the producers do! Especially box office.
the country did buy into these movies and they are highly priased. all ratings are out of 10 and are from imdb:
Team America 7.3/10 (26,780 votes)
United Flight 93 7.8/10 (9,557 votes)
World Trade Center 7.2/10 (2,925 votes)
The Red Violin 7.7/10 (8,714 votes)
Immortal Beloved 7.0/10 (5,032 votes)
Office Space 7.7/10 (37,551 votes)
Overboard 6.1/10 (6,773 votes)
Josie and the Pussycats 5.1/10 (5,912 votes)
28 Days Later 7.3/10 (34,563 votes)
Last of The Mohicans 7.6/10 (20,355 votes)
Blade Runner 8.3/10 (92,549 votes) #99 0n the imdb.com best 250 ever
Year of Living Dangerously 7.0/10 (4,360 votes)
now all of these films recived high praise (except Josie) as noted by their rankings. they are just outside on the list of the best 250 ever on imdb.com list that ranges from:
1. 9.1 The Godfather (1972) 173,296
250. 7.8 The Insider (1999) 37,251
and it's not the vote total that gives the ranking it's the average star total given to each movie. now they box office number aren't that high but they are highly praised movies otherwise they wouldn't be in the 7 range. i mean how many best oscar winners don't get that big of box office draws but in order for them to win they were highly aclaimed movies.
What motivates someone to plunk down their $8-11.50? That's the only thing that counts.
