Underrated Movie #286 ~ Outbreak

Outbreak
As Army virologist Sam Daniels (Dustin Hoffman) strives to thwart a global biological meltdown in the form of a killer virus that has infested a California community, he must also battle those (Morgan Freeman and Donald Sutherland) who claim that the only way to stop the disease is to firebomb the town. (Netflix) 6.5 out of 10 on Imdb? Wrong. My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars.

Underrated Movie #285 ~ Two Lovers

Two Lovers
After his engagement falls through, troubled Leonard Kraditor juggles the affections of Michelle Rausch, his beautiful but self-destructive neighbor, and Sandra Cohen, the attractive, sensible daughter of his father’s business associate. (Netflix) Just about every one of director James Gray’s movies go overlooked. He’s also got two others on my list: The Yards, Underrated Movie #41, and We Own the Night, Underrated Movie #137. My Rating of Two Lovers: 4 out of 5 Stars.

Must See Thriller ~ Prisoners

Prisoners
This is a new category: new movies I’ve seen that get two huge thumbs up, but aren’t necessarily “underrated” or “overlooked.” If you like psychological and action thrillers, then you must see this… right now. When his 6-year-old daughter is abducted and the investigation stalls, carpenter Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) tracks down the culprit himself. But his vigilante action pits him against the case’s lead detective (Jake Gyllenhaal) and puts his own sanity at risk. (Netflix) My Rating: 5.5 out of 5 Stars.

Underrated Movie #284 ~ Modern Romance

Modern Romance
Writer-director Albert Brooks offers his take on “modern” romance (80’s style), following the efforts of hopeless neurotic Robert Cole (Brooks) to find and keep a woman’s love — particularly when he alternately woos and discards bank executive Mary Harvard (Kathryn Harrold). Kathryn may be the most patient girlfriend in the world, which could make her his perfect match. But will Robert make up his mind before it’s too late? (Netflix) My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars.

Underrated Movie #283 ~ View from the Top

View From the Top
A small-town girl’s dreams of becoming a flight attendant hit some turbulence when she encounters a catty colleague, a frisky pilot and a crazy instructor. Fortunately, she has an “experienced” friend who shows her the ropes. (Netflix) My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars. No, this isn’t The Shawshank Redemption, and it’s not going to change your life. But it doesn’t deserve the 5.1 rating it has on IMDb. Thus, it’s underrated. And Mike Myers is hilarious.
