Underrated Movie #290 ~ Blackfish

This documentary examines the life of performing killer whales and specifically of the whale “Tilikum” — who has caused the deaths of several people while in captivity — and questions the safety and humaneness of confining these intelligent creatures. (Netflix) Warning: Gut-wrenching and sometimes difficult to watch. My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars. And do your own research. Don’t just listen to this one side and think you’ve heard it all. Hear the other side as well in the YouTube video below. Note that BOTH sides of this issue are probably good at making propaganda.

About Underrated Movies
My name is Eric and I created this blog for the simple reason that I love to find hidden gems that go under the radar. So you can get an idea of my tastes, my favorite all-time movies include (among many others) Aliens (plural), Braveheart, The Shawshank Redemption, Field of Dreams, Misery, Mississippi Burning, The Untouchables, Die Hard, and Superman: The Movie. I have a massive list of over 250 underrated, under-appreciated, and/or overlooked movies, and I am always on the lookout for more. I will occasionally update this blog with a new selection. Each entry has links to the Internet Movie Database, a top critic’s review of the movie, Netflix, a link to the trailer, and a link to purchase and/or watch the movie instantly on Amazon. I would earn a small commission if you buy on Amazon after clicking my link, so consider making a purchase if you enjoy this blog.

    • Glad you liked it. Oddly, there’s probably another side to this story. These documentary makers are good at propaganda, and tugging on the heart strings, and showing only what they want you to see while making it appear like you’re hearing both sides equally. But the other side of the story would also do the same thing with their own propaganda.

      Here’s some propaganda from the other side:
