The 12 Most Underrated Movies of 2016

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for movie fans who feel pathologically inclined to categorize the best cinematic works in nice, neat lists. Last week on The Dan Cave, we gazed into our crystal balls at all the fantastic films coming our way in 2017, and soon we’ll be celebrating the best of the best of 2017. However, before we get too deep into handing out golden statues and laurel crowns, I wanted to take a moment to shine a light on those marvelous movies that flew under the radar this year. Those that we feel were misunderstood or underappreciated.

It’s easy (and a lot of fun) to heap accolades on super popular, well received films like Captain America: Civil War or Deadpool, but there are so many other amazing films that are deserving of your time and attention as well. So this holiday season, get ready to eat your body weight in popcorn and curl up with the films on this list: the most underrated movies of 2016 that you need to see!

Which of these is your favorite? What would you add to this list? Let me know in the comments below.
