Copycat. It's a great 90's thriller with Sigourney Weaver and Holly Hunter about a serial killer copying the murders of famous serial killers like Dahmer, Bundy, and the Boston strangler.

The Fountain (I honestly don't care what anyone says, I love this movie and think it's one of the best meditations of death and acceptance in any medium)
All That Jazz (I know it was nominated for several big awards for its time, but I think it's slipped far too much off the radar nowadays)
Hulk (I can actually understand why some weren't fond of this, but I still think it's quite good)
Ghostbusters 2 (This one I never understood the disdain for. It's not as good as the first by any means, but still very good and fun in its own right).

Predator (It's a classic among Sci-Fi fans and it should be on AFI's list of 100 Thrills but unfortunately, it's not)

Batman Returns (Most misunderstood Batman film, keeps the fanbase and audiences divided. When it's actually one of the best of the series, up their with The Dark Knight, Batman Begins and Batman '89)

Lust Caution--a wonderful romantic spy thriller that, aside from some leering notices for its sexual content, came and went in the U.S.

Memento Mori--a superb coming-of-age horror story. One of the first Korean commercial films to depict lesbian characters

Millennium Mambo--not really underrated, but considering its quality it should have gotten as much attention as Three Times and Flight of the Red Balloon

Pi - The first movie Aronofsky directed turns out to be one of his best.
The Conversation - the movie mostly never get mentioned when talking about Francis Ford Coppola's best movie.
Letters from Iwo Jima - It's a great war movie and I like that it focused on the event of Battle of Iwo Jima from the Japanese side.
Fanny och Alexander (Fanny and Alexander) - I love this movie.
Paths of Glory - For me it was Kubrick's first masterpiece.
