The Most Underrated Movies of 2015


Miss You Already like a fire in a chain restaurant. The film around her is good, welcoming fare, the kind that snobs always underestimate. But then Collette, playing a vain patient bereft at losing her hair and her ability to wear 7-inch Louboutins, enters the frame to give an Oscar-caliber performance in a movie that Oscar voters probably will avoid watching until 2019 when they're stuck home with the flu." —Amy Nicholson; Credit: Nick Wall">Miss You Already

"Toni Collette rages through Catherine Hardwicke's cancer weepie Miss You Already like a fire in a chain restaurant. The film around her is good, welcoming fare, the kind that snobs always underestimate. But then Collette, playing a vain patient bereft at losing her hair and her ability to wear 7-inch Louboutins, enters the frame to give an Oscar-caliber performance in a movie that Oscar voters probably will avoid watching until 2019 when they're stuck home with the flu." —Amy Nicholson; Credit: Nick Wall

There are several different ways of defining “underrated.” Did reviewers not give a certain movie its fair shake, or did a critical darling simply fall through the box-office cracks? Whatever the reason may be, here are more than 20 movies from 2015 that deserve a second (or, if you've yet to see them, first) look. Though hindsight and the inexorable march of time may reveal why some of these didn't succeed as they might have, one burning question remains unanswered: Seriously, why did so few people like Blackhat? —Michael Nordine
