The History of The Unloved

Roger Ebert was known as a champion for the unloved films of movie history. After all, he started a film festival built around overlooked films, and he loved talking about those movies that he felt were underappreciated by audiences and critics. Scout Tafoya has continued that tradition with his beloved series of video essays, running over six years and counting. We have assembled all of The Unloved into one portal. Pick your favorites by clicking on the title or the poster, share with your friends, and, most importantly, watch a few of these movies. They deserve your love. -- Brian Tallerico
