Post What were the most underrated films of 2019? Most overrated?
What 2019 films should have enjoyed more love/hype/success than they got? Which received more than what they deserved?

Well most overrated is clearly The Irishman. It's a good movie and all, but was hyped up to be Scorsese's magnum opus and ended up being like his 17th best film.

Underrated is Crawl. Quentin Tarantino's favorite of the year, dismissed as a silly sci-fi channel movie, review embargo even though the reviews ended up really good, etc... Nobody did Crawl any favors and it's amazing that it even made it close to $40M.

This. And it pains me typing this, but Avengers was a big letdown too. I envy everyone who was able to love it.

How is Once upon a time in Hollywood under rated? It was loved by critics and audience alike, had great BO and have been a continuous big player in awards circuit. What else is required to be called highly-rated?

Charlie's Angels. People who've never seen it all talk shit but people who've seen it generally like it. Fucking bandwagoners.

Idk about overrated.
