Shame on you for not seeing these 2 in the theater as I did. I blame you for no sequels due to dismal box offices. What were you doing opening weekend that was so important? Don't remember? Exactly.

1. Equilibrium

2. Live, Die, Repeat

Dark City - Director's Cut

Totally underrated. Was completely overshadowed by the Matrix when it came out

Not a movie, but just started on “The Expanse” and I don’t know why I haven’t heard more about this show.

You’re dating yourself with Equilibrium. Also it’s trash sorry.

It's fucking GREAT isn't it? The only probably is the main guy is kind of a shitty actor, but all the supporting actors are really good.

Jason Strathairn's charcter is a personal favorite, as is Peter Outerbridge

Not only underrated, but one of the greatest movies ever made. Rockwell should have got an oscar

I don't know if it's necessarily considered sci-fi (it kinda is?), but Coherence is criminally underrated.

A lot of the effects were pretty bad even for it's time.  However I loved the movie anyway and will always remember how cool it was when they were wandering the desolute ruins of D.C.

The Time Trap... kind of cheaply made, but a great premise.

Yeah, I remember seeing that in theaters. Great concept and Keifer Sutherland gasping character was clutch.

Those alien things were creepy. It's like the move explored living in a simulation before living in a simulation was cool.
