People Shared The Most Unexpectedly Amazing Movies They've Ever Seen, And Damn, This Is A Good List

    From The Lego Movie to Edge of Tomorrow, there's a lot of good stuff on here.

    Sometimes...okay, maybe a lot of times, people go into movies with pretty low expectations (I know I certainly do). Whether it's because the trailer made it look bad or you just "heard bad things," not all movies have the same level of enthusiasm going for them when audiences head into the theater or sit down to stream.

    However, sometimes said movies actually really surprise people! So, when Reddit user u/Corn-G posed the question "What was the most unexpectedly amazing movie you've ever seen?" to the AskReddit community, well, I took notes. Here are the top-voted responses:
