Potential Underrated Movies on My List

Hi All, I thought it would be fun to show you one of my lists potential underrated movies. These movies are actually just the “overflow” from my Netflix queue, and I keep them listed in a notepad document, which means that the Netflix queue has surpassed the 500 movie limit (for DVDs). I also have about 150 in the “Instant” queue. Obviously I will not be able to watch all of these in my lifetime, so I always try to watch the ones with the most potential first. Feel free to let me know if any on this list jump out at you as one(s) that you would recommend. ~ Eric
