Most overrated films of all time

Postby TAMATER » Mon Jun 14, 2010 5:27 pm

ET
How To Train Your Dragon
Shrek 1 (though deserves most acclaim)
Any classic disney movie, especially Snow White (out-ranks pixar a lot)
Slumdog Millionare (looks good though)
The Iron Giant (pretty good movie, but still overrated.)
Spider-man 2 (not as good as people say it is)
Any Judd Apatow movie

Sorry if my opinion is quite different from yours... Anyway I'm excited to see what other people feel are the most overrated films.

Slumdog Millionare won Best Picture instead of The Dark Knight so I hate that movie. Also I totally agree with you on Spider-Man 2. I didn't even think it was good.

Twilight. Just... Twilight.

There isn't anything good about that, seriously.

Also I love HTTYD but I do agree it's getting a bit... overhyped lately.

Oh, yes. How could I forget the Twilight movies! Twilight and New Moon were probably some of the worst movies of the decade, yet they both won at least 5 MTV Awards, including Best Movie, each.

Some of the Star Wars movies are overrated, but Episodes 4-6 are classics!
Pulp Fiction (I've never seen it but it seems overrated.)

Congrats IncredigirlViginia! Finally, someone who thinks that HTTYD is overrated!

Twilight definetly. SOUL CRUSHINGLY DEPRESSING AND OVERDRAMATIC.

Ugggh, there's no way to describe how much I hate those movies. I'm a nice guy most of the time, but I deliberately went out of my way to be an asswhole about the movies in front of these pricks in my class.

Avatar is definetly overrated. Nothing besides 3-D garbage.

Also, Marmaduke was beginning to whore out before release date. So were the Hannah Montanna and Jonas Brothers movies. Blech.

Twilight/New Moon
Avatar
The Dark Knight
Sherlock Holmes
Gladiator
Goodfellas
Fight Club

That's my opinion , (just because they're overrated doesn't automatically make them bad btw, just praised too much, e.g. Goodfellas, still a sick movie tho :D.)

In response to this, check out my underrated Movies also :) on the forum page.

The Dark Knight wasn't even nominated.

Oh, for me: Slumdog and The Hurt Locker. Do not even get me started on the latter.[/i]

haha, everybody really seems to think Twilight is overrated :lol:

The only movie I can think of that's really overrated is The Hangover. I mean, it was funny, but everybody talks about it like it was the best movie ever, and really, it isn't.

I agree with the consensus here; Twilight, How To Train Your Dragon and The Hangover are all very overrated films. The first just reminds me of how both modern novels and films are going down the toilet rapidly, the second, though good, has poor character development and is hypocritical, and the third, though funny, just really wasn't THAT funny.

I think The Dark Knight is a bit overrated too, because without Heath Ledger's amazing performance it wouldn't have been an amazing movie. I watch it just to see him in action, and that's about it.

@Everyone saying HTTYD is overrated: I honestly think that the movie deserves every ounce of praise it's getting, because of two reasons. 1) It's a good film by Dreamworks that doesn't rely on pop culture references or crude humor. 2) It's very hard to find a great movie in this day and age. This is the first movie of the new year that I can actually say I fully enjoyed.

I agree, Basil, that Dreamworks should get a pat on the back for improving their standards with this movie, but just because it's an improvement on their part doesn't mean that, in comparison with all movies released this year or generally I think it's worthy of not being criticised at all. It's got many good points about it, but there are also some negative points that are being missed simply because it's a Dreamworks film that doesn't have pop culture references. If you see what I mean? I probably worded that really badly. :lol:

Anyway, each to their own. I do like it overall, but at the same time, I do think it's overrated. You're right though that this year so far hasn't been great movie-wise.
