Top 10 Underrated Movies to Watch in 2019

You probably don’t need to know about the release of famous movies or sequels of those because you have those release dates engraved in your brain.

Once those movies are released, the hype around them dies down. Maybe because of unmet expectations of fans or they just phase out. While you wait for another release of a well-known movie, there are great movies that you can be watching as you patiently await the release of that movie.

Most movie watchers usually miss out on great movies because they are underrated and as a result think that it’s not worth watching. However, you may spend a lot of money to get that one underrated movie that doesn’t deserve being underrated.

So, if you have had enough of Toy Story Spider-Man sequels, here’s a recap of some top underrated movies in this. Don’t miss out these amazing ten underrated movies you can watch in 2019.

Alita: Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel is the anime movie co-written by the same person who wrote ‘Avatar,’ James Cameron. This movie was delayed for a long while, but when it was finally released, some found it hard to get used to the robot’s giant eyes.

The movie is based around the story of a robot that was found without a body, but Dr. Ido acted out by Christoph Waltz rebuilds her. The movie has a lot going on when you watch it, but the effects and storyline are very great and keep you hooked throughout. The studio is quite buoyed by the response it has garnered from film critics and the worldwide box office collection. The sequels are certainly on the cards.

Fast Color

Fast Color was released a week before the release date of the Avengers: Endgame. Because the hype around the Avengers was high, Fast Color didn’t get the publicity it deserved. The movie is focused on the story of Ruth, acted out by Mbatha-Raw. She plays a fugitive who the scientists want to capture because of her powers.

She has the power to cause seismic events when she has seizures. When she gets home, another similar woman awaits her, including her mother and daughter. Some may find it similar to ‘The Darkest Minds,’ but this overlooked movie is worth the watch.

Fighting with my family

Fighting with my family is one of those WWE fighting classics that has a distracting cameo of the producer, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.  Despite this, Florence Pugh, who plays Paige in the movie, covers that mistake with her great talent.

With some great WWE action and some comedy here and there, this movie is the perfect choice for you. It is based around the story of Paige, a WWE superstar, and the kooky Knights that wrestle to stay out of trouble by avoiding addiction and crime.

Sarah Wood, co-writer with Edugeeksclub dissertation help, has reviewed this movie for some top movie sites. In her words, ‘’I loved this movie in-and-out.’ It’s a pleasant break from the sci-fi’s and superhero movies that have been talk of the town for almost a year now. A funny family oozing with confidence to make it big in WWE, people’s fav Dwayne in a cameo, the cool British flavor it has, more than made up for the small budget. It doesn’t get better.’’

Greta

Greta’s main character is acted out by Isabelle Huppert, a seasoned French actor that is just purely amazing to watch. She first appears to be an elderly matron who loses her handbags often when she is actually a maniac that sets traps for unsuspecting young women.

However, Frances then finds out the real intentions and crafty stalking habits of Greta. When Greta gets aggravated and starts to rage, she is a great scene to watch.

The movie begins with Becky at the peak of her addiction and often has an awful lot to say backstage.

The movie portrays her changing for the worst and then quickly reforms. The movie shows you the turmoil and storm raging inside Becky’s head and then shows her beautiful reformation.

High flying bird

High Flying bird is a Netflix movie and because of that, it’s hard to tell how underrated it is.
