Are you trying to say that, while a lot of people think mother! is just another weird and pretentious film (from a weird and pretentious filmmaker), you think it's actually a smart metaphor for the world itself? A metaphor which shows how the human race gets more intrusive and corrupted with each generation, the futility of God trying to save them through His son, and that, eventually, Mother Nature will strike back on humans with a wrathful vengeance.

Hands down, Glass (2019). In my humble case it lived up to 19 years of expectations easily, even surpassing original Unbreakable (2000) a bit as a deconstruction/reconstruction of a genre. Since latter faced the same fate of being super underrated back in 2000, I am pretty sure movie will became a staple cult classic in the following years, not to mention I'm also pretty sure it might actually predict certain social and political changes in the real world, as cult classics tend to do.

While your list seems okay, there are also so many other movies with a rating under 7. Do you have any other criteria?

No, I picked the well-known movies or movies from well-known directors. And I wanted diversity in the genres in the list. There are a lot of action/marvel movies in the list, so I picked the best ones.
Feel free to suggest movies/changes.

I think they are good picks, but it’s really hard to remove something from the list. Most movies of my list have more votes than these picks.
I added Us instead of Minions. For the other picks I don’t see movies on the list that are less.

Are you kidding?  The Tree of Life is one of the worst movies ever made.  Complete and absolute pretentious garbage.

From your list my favorite is Captain America: The First Avenger, one of my favorite comic book films.
Venom is the other good movie I gave a good rating, but in the case of the rest I've seen, I think they are correctly appreciated, and some are even overrated with their medium score as they deserve worst.

Some suggestion from films with less than 7.0 that I rated with an 8 are:
Murder on the Orient Express (2017)
Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)
The Old Man & the Gun (2018)
All is Lost (2013)
Miss Bala (2011)
Albert Nobbs (2011)
The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)     (2017)

You gotta be kidding me? Not one of the films listed were "Underrated". Just about every one of them were over-hyped garbage. Underwhelming, yes, Under-performing, definitely, Underrated, No way.

I might not agree that every single movie on the list is underrated, but in my humble opinion there are easily at least 10 movies there which do qualify as such. 

Especially Glass (2019). I can almost literally fight people for this movie, especially since people who mostly tell they think it's lame also recall it erroneously which signifies they never even tried to pay attention. It might sound overly dramatic, but if you can't even recall what you saw what gives you the right to criticize?.. Then again, what we might expect from several generations who grew up with Gene Siskel as a top film critic, a guy whose review of The Terminator (1984) broadcast on national TV suggests he misunderstood plot to such an extent he thought that titular antagonist and Kyle Reese were from another planet (!) rather than the future.

With all due respect to Siskel as a film critic, why he even attempted the review if he was that disinterested in the movie or maybe never even saw it fully?.. Moreover, why people complain about the movies that way even now?..

This is my first post here and I'm probably breaking the rules, but I would like to add my personal pick for underrated film of the 2010s: "Doctor Sleep" (2019).  The average rating is 7.5, so it does not technically fit the criteria to be considered "underrated".  However, I feel that anything less than an 8.5 rating is a major snub and IMO just wrong.  I rated it 9 stars because it was nearly perfect for me and I rarely give 10 star ratings.  Anyone else feel this one deserves some more love??

Karen, this poll has already gone live, so the only way your pick could be added would be if the poll author added it and re-pushed the poll.
But on Poll Suggestions that have not gone live, your input is always welcome!
If you's like, you can check out some of my current suggestion, just waiting for input:

BTW, I have not seen Doctor Sleep myself, but I know what it's like to really like a movie that everyone else seems to poo-poo.  :)

Thanks NarniaisAwesome.  I wasn't asking for Doctor Sleep to be added to the poll, just wanted to mention as a comment to see if anyone here is also a fan.  This is my favorite movie of the past year or two and it deserves some love!  Thanks for explaining to me, as I am a newbie!! Happy to be here. :))

Hi Karen Luna,

Welcome to the IMDb Poll Message board.

So long as you are respectfully commenting on a live poll or suggesting choices for a poll suggestion you are not breaking any rules. Please feel free to comment on other polls.

I realize that you are not suggesting that Doctor Sleep (2019) be added to this poll. However, if you were there are two primary issues that would have prevented the author of this poll from adding Doctor Sleep .
  1. Polls are limited to 35 choices. Once a poll goes live choices cannot be added to a poll if it already has 35 choices. This poll already has 35 choices.
  2. Doctor Sleep has a rating of 7.5. For a film to be eligible for this poll it cannot have a rating above 7.0
Again, welcome. I hope to read additional comments from you in the future.

I didnt see my own pick in the list, so I will say it here - the remake of Suspiria (2018).
I wasnt sure that I would enjoy the movie, but I didnt think it would be bad either, because while I dislike the original with passion, I do think that it had an interesting premise and that it was quite interesting, if not likeable to me, visually, so I thought it couldnt be worse than that.
However, the remake took me completely by surprise, and I loved every moment of it. Not only it was a remake that improved on the original in every way, in my opinion, but it actually Felt like the fever dream everybody claims the original was. The only criticism I could give it is that the soundtrack choice at some points felt as not matching the visuals, but all in al Thom Yorke did an excellent job as well as a first time score composer.
One of my two favorite movies of 2018, with the other one being The House That Jack Built.
