When there is a lot of hype about a movie, it often doesn’t live up to the audience’s expectations. On the other hand, sometimes, the marketing team doesn’t do a great job promoting a fantastic movie, and it ends up falling through the cracks. Here are 14 of the most mind-blowing films, according to the internet.
1. The Prestige (2006)
Someone said, “I only knew that it was about magicians. And a week or so before, I had seen The Illusionist. I loved both. And I thought it was funny how there were two movies about magicians in the 1800s at the same time, like how Armageddon and Deep Impact were in theaters around the same time back in the day.”
2. Palm Springs (2020)
Somebody shared, “My friend just turned in on and said “watch this” and wow. It’s become one of my most rewatchable movies. It hits me in the feels, though. But that’s what makes it a great movie to me.”
3. The Matrix (1999)
One user said, “Somehow walked into the wrong cinema and ended up mind-boggled from the opening scene to the last. Great experience!”
4. Sicario (2015)
“I watched it after seeing Prisoners (which also blew me away) and was looking to get into more of Villeneuve’s portfolio. I still feel Sicario is criminally underrated. I try to recommend it to everyone. The script, performances, cinematography, and tone are all just knocked out of the park,” someone explained.
5. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
“I lived in Tennessee and would go to Hastings to buy used movies. I bought it on a whim and was absolutely blown away,” a person shared.
6. The Usual Suspects (1995)
“I had never heard anything about it. A friend passed around a bowl of kind Humboldt County bud and popped the video cassette in. I was mind blown,” someone expressed.
7. Edge of Tomorrow (2004)
“We had a blast, were very entertained, and friends kept calling Tom Cruise ‘the chosen one’ during the ride home,” someone recounted.
8. Nobody (2021)
“Knew nothing about it, but watched it the other week because Bob Odenkirk was in it. Have watched it multiple times since,” a person stated.
9. Galaxy Quest (1999)
A user explained, “It was a last-second decision to see a movie while out with some friends. We just picked the movie that was about to start. I knew the premise of the movie but had not seen a trailer. Dang, it was way hilariously awesome watching it the first time in a theater.”
10. The Birdcage (1996)
“Just love Robin Williams, and it ended up being one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen,” someone reminisced.
11. The Fifth Element
“It’s a classic now, but it had the worst marketing I’ve ever seen for a film like that. If I remember correctly, the teaser trailer was just some lights in space and a giant number 5,” someone said.
12. Snowpiercer (2013)
“I think my cousin and I read maybe the logline and thought, “Yeah, let’s go.” We didn’t even see the trailer,” someone shared.
13. The Mummy (1999)
A user explained, “My parents took me at age eight and didn’t want to go; I thought it was a scary movie because I remember a clip of a hand coming out of the ground. Top five favorite movies to this day.”
14. Game Night (2018)
“I had never even seen a trailer for it, but I went to the movie theater one night to see whatever was playing, and there it was. Absolutely loved it; thought it was a great comedy,” a person said.
