Underrated movies/books

Sat Mar 08, 2014 12:45 am

There are so many popular movies and books out there that people are just instantly drawn to but what happens to the movies that you see advertise but don't hear much about? The books that look interesting but you'd still never read them unless they are recommended? Got a book or movie that's underrated? Tell us here so we can be apart of something not everyone is apart of!

The Wake trilogy by Lisa McMann is amazing and I never hear anything about it. It's a series of 3 books (Wake, Fade, and Gone) about a girl who has the ability to travel through people's dreams and she has to choose between dying from it or living alone for the rest of her life and that's a pretty crappy explanation of them but they're a lot better than they sound. I haven't read them since 8th grade but I remember them being pretty great and very underrated.

I remember thinking the movie Stardust was totally underrated and hilarious.

I cannot find anyone in the Jeeves fandom nowadays. The Jeeves books are a series of novels and short stories by P.G Wodehouse and they take place in about the 1920s to 1940s era. They're about a young member of the aristocracy and his genius valet and they are absolutely hilarious. There's also a television adaption called Jeeves and Wooster featuring Laurie and Fry that was filmed in the 90s. There are several stories that are problematic that I choose to skip over, but the rest of the universe is really just fun and make great light reading.

I also recently finished Marvel's Agent Carter and I'm astonished that there aren't more viewers. It's a shame the show was canceled.

    • I loved those books, but almost no one has even heard of them.

      There are honestly so many books I love that nobody has ever heard of. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. The Darkest Powers and The Darkness Rising trilogies by Kelley Armstrong. The Golden Compass trilogy. Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend.
