Not a one by Steven Seagall ? I like all of his !
No offence mate, but Steven Seagal films shouldn't be anywhere near a sentient adult's top ten films. :beer3:

Many great movies are great for standout reasons whether it be screenplay, performance, repainting genre... And because so few films are able to attain an outstanding quality or uniqueness, many of the same will appear on favorite lists because they’re, well, obvious.

So rather than submitting a Top 10, which would probably only be a variation on what’s already been offered, here's 10 films I think are highly underrated.

1. Nightcrawler
2. Uncut Gems
3. Searching for Sugar Man
4. Limitless
5. In Bruges
6. Papillon (original)
7. Pumping Iron
8. The Machinist
9. Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmakers Apocalypse
10. Looper

And so many more.
