    Tbh I don't think Citizen Kane has been surpassed. It's certainly overrated with every other person parroting it's the best film ever - but it is one of the best films.
    Timeless classic for me.
    Casablanca is a film I enjoyed but can live without. Kane is a different thing.

    On a serious note- Romero's Living Dead series.

    I think they're great movies and I was quite entertained a few times when I first watched them, but I can't understand how some people find them as a pinnacle of cinematography in depicting complexity of human relationships.

    Not saying I totally disagree, but that wasn't exactly what I meant when I compared the two. Disregarding the actual films themselves, I would imagine much like Citizen Kane, Casablanca has probably influenced a modern work that you couldn't live without.

    I have a habit of poorly communicating ideas, so please don't take it personally. :ok:

    I'll say an underrated masterpiece is Freddy Got Fingered

    That film is so ahead if it's time it's an anti Sandler movie before Sandler got shit.

    Another underrated film is JASON X
    p29363_p_v8_aa-435x623.jpg

    easily the best Friday the 13th movie
    And yet it's inexplicably the second most hated.
    I mean it's the first one with Jason being Jason and no MPAA mandateded cuts every five minutes

    I mean yeah its the dumbest one in the franchise. Jason goes to space and becomes a cyborg, fights an android. Plays a VR game. All of this is the best thing to happen to the franchise and I wish more people could see that.
