"Batteries Not Included.
It’s a cute little 80s movie about some alien robots who took up residence in this old apartment complex and when the residents are threatened with eviction so the place could be torn down, the robots help the tenants and the tenants help the robot aliens. Anyways, I enjoyed it."
"Murder by Death.
Everyone always talks about clue but neglects this classic. They make a great double feature of murder mystery comedies.
Also Fatal Instinct. A terrific spoof, from when spoofs were good."
(That weird talking dino movie starring John Goodman)"
"Fly Away Home. Was obsessed with it and it is never mentioned. Was it a fever dream???"
"Secret Garden (1993)"
"Now and Then (1995)"
"Drop Dead Gorgeous. MOAST SMAERTEST."
Nathan Lane, Lee Evans, Christopher Walken in one of his best roles One of my childhood favorites"
"The Great Mouse Detective"
"Better off dead"

"Thank You for Smoking."
Just because it has a good rating and Oscar worthy does not make it a popular movie. "The Hurt Locker" has a 7.5 on IMDB as well, and won the Best Picture Oscar in 2009 but only grossed $14,700,000 at the box office. Not exactly a hit movie.

Well, I haven't heard of most of these and partly grew up in the era. So maybe most were not well advertised or quickly forgotten or even came out with big well-known blockbusters that eclipsed them.
