Most Overrated Movies on IMDb's Top 250


The Top TenXW

1The Dark Knight

I'm not really sure this should beat out Citizen Kane on the Top 250, let alone be the 2nd or 3rd on the damn list! - ArchAces

Like it the first time because the Joker (overrated himself as he has no emotional depth, just laughs in every scene) but the second time; actually playing attention to the story, it was just plain silly.

I just didn't see what all the hype was about and Christian bale's character was rather boring!

A movie that is awesome but a disgrace for batman!...considering this to be one of the best movies of all time is ABSURD!

2Pulp Fiction

This did not entertain me in the slightest.

The most overrated piece of useless trash I've ever seen - Alexandr

3Marvel's The Avengers

I just don't understand the overpowering popularity of this film. Yes, it is an entertaining summer popcorn movie with lots of action and special effects. But is it really of great quality that deserves to be compared to classic award-winners? I just don't see it.

Feel like watching Transformers: Dark Of The Moon twin brother. Too much CGI for me sometimes makes any recent film include this one cheap and crap.

4The Shawshank Redemption

It's a great movie, but I don't think it belongs in the top spot.

That's Your OWN Opinion They Have Rights To Put It In The Top Spot - VideoGamefan5

5The Dark Knight RisesV2 Comments
6Django Unchained

I'm really surprised that this is in the top 250. - PositronWildhawk


This Movie is really boring! For Sure it's an overrated movie

8Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Sweet fairytale but not pure brilliance - Alexandr

Not the best in the trilogy and certainly not even Top 100 film, let alone Top 10.

9The Matrix

Does anyone still care bout it no Kay then

10American Beauty

I don't think this film is very good at all.

The Contenders

11Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

Pretty good and fun to watch. But what is just listed a second ago is why Inception should not be the 13 greatest movie ever it is more of an action movie.

Pretty good but not the 13th best movie ever.

Good movie, but overrated by unintelligent morons.

13The Godfather

I bet you all the same people who say Godfather is overrated have seen all Adam Sandler movies and rated half of them 10/10 - farckashkun
