Same goes with Kill Bill, at least when it first came out. Volume 1 only became popular among the High School crowd when it came out on dvd 7 months after its theatrical release because they were too lazy to watch it on the big screen and didn’t even know who Tarantino was. I still think it can be considered underrated, due to the fact that most people who like it only do because it has a lot of blood, and can’t appreciate it for the work of art that it is. If you don’t even know who Sergio Leone is or can’t name one song from the film, then you’re not a true Kill Bill fan. Kill Bill was made for a specific audience, and it takes a certain type of person to see how great it really is.
[quote]it’s often refered to as the best one (which it is) and on imdb in the top 250 it’s the highest of the trilogy I think, not that imdb is the audience but the audience votes[/quote]
That may be so, but I’ve rarely heard any SW fans in real life say that Empire is their favorite movie. More often than not, they’ll pick A New Hope or Jedi (some even Sith), so I was basing my argument on that. Just because it is so perfect, I’d say it’s underrated no matter what, because there will be a percentage who doesn’t like it as much as the others who says it sucks just because it doesn’t have as much action in it.
