41Les Miserables (2012)

This should have stayed a book. But instead we got big name actors singing like animals getting skinned alive - ArpstaAmy333

I just hate Musicals in movies. I don't know why. I...just hate it.

42The Godfather

This is a MASTERPIECE! AFI has this ranked #2 to only Citizen Kane. It is written and directed like an Italian opera. This is "the" best thing to come out of Hollywood in the last 40 years. Even if you don't like it, you have to appreciate what great movie it is. Godfather should be nowhere near this list. Anyone who cannot appreciate this movie knows nothing about films. Sorry if Fast & Furious 6 is your limits of taste.

I agree here. This movie just help influence the way criminal thug life would be redefined. It was a very good film but not spectacular. I think that Angels With Dirty Faces was better because it did not glorify gangster life. It showed how doing the wrong things had consequences. You do not find that here with the Godfather.

Too overrated, I can't stand it. I wonder how really this film can appeal to so may people when it deals just with mafia and gangsters. Is mafia and gangsters the essence of cinema? I think that there was and still is too much propaganda for The Godfather. It's certainly not a masterpiece! What's going on with people's minds?

Sorry this is amazing

44Django Unchained

Like every Tarantino movie, a lack of originality. It's just a copy of the many Italian westerns made in the sixties.

This movie is incredible. This movie has everything you really want for just good old fashion entertainment. Because when you think about the plot, it's very simple but genius.

This movie isn't as good as everyone claims it to be

45E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial

Really forgettable. First time seeing it I found it very hard to believe it was "The film that moved America" because it was so boring. I hardly even remember what happens and maybe that is for the best. How can something so boring be one of the most critically acclaimed movies of its time?

The game is even worse than the movie!

Must I mention the awful Atari 2600 game

Yeah, I found it pretty boring. I guess I see why people like it, but I don't.

47Sunset Boulevard

I had heard a long time how great this movie is but it is so boring. Norma Desmund is a totally overrated character. I barely was able to stay up watching it.

This is a great movie.billy wilder is the best I think its underrated I had never heard of it when I saw it

48American Hustle

I love Amy Adams and Christian Bale in this movie but I hated Jennifer Lawrence with her annoying voice and terrible accent ( it's her natural voice ). The movie was ok the first hour but after that it becomes a little boring, confused and not very realistic.

This got sooo much hype before it came out because of it's top-notch cast, but frankly it wasn't that good. The story was only okay, although the acting was pretty good. That has nothing to do with the movie though, it just had good actors...

Whatchable because of Amy Adams. But if she was not in the movie it would be very doubtful.

This movie was so much fun. Bradley Cooper was awesome! - BeatlesFan1964

49The Amazing Spider-Man

The Lizard is by far the worst developed villain ever put in a Spider-Man movie, he's working on cross-species genetics to try and regrow his arm, while also doing it because they think it can provide the cure for Norman Osborne who is dying, we never see Norman Osborne, not even once, they just keep telling Dr. Connors that he's dying. And they expect us to care about him. And plus, his big goal in this movie was regrowing his arm, so after that happens and he turns into the Lizard, the script has no idea what to do with him. So they just have him hide in the sewer and concoct the most idiotic plan a villain could have, turn all of New York into lizard creatures...WHERE DID THIS COME FROM!?! Seriously, he turns into the lizard, gets voices in his head JUST LIKE NORMAN OSBORNE IN THE FIRST SPIDER-MAN MOVIE, and randomly decides to turn the city into lizards

THE SPIDERMAN TRILOGY was fantastic and spiderman 3 underrated while the reboot amazing spiderman was mediocre and too overrated while amazing spiderman 2 was okay its still way too overrated while spiderman 3 is underrated.

As a Spider-Man fan, this film is such a disappointment. the film suffers with a poorly written script making the protagonist unlikable and the antagonist bland, poor pacing with scenes and unfunny jokes going for too long or important scenes going by in a flash, characters being featured for barely half the film until disappearing from the picture entirely, and trying and failing to hide the flaws of the film with slight references to the comic for the fans of the original source material. by the way, the sequel makes Spider-Man 3(2007) look like Spider-man 2(2004) in comparison - HensilFilms

50Dumb and Dumber

This is childish comedy made for even dumber idiots. Typical American crap.

This movie is intentionally dumb, sure it's funny, but it's not the best comedy ever. - BeatlesFan1964

This movie is actually UNDERRATED!

51Sin City

I didn't have as much of a problem with actors. The movie itself is just the dumbest thing you could possibly write. The camerawork is great though. But the story... Wait a minute, there's a story here? I thought it just guys who smoked too many cigarettes and Japanese ninja goddess Sonic carhops beating the snot out of people. Very artistic, as long as it's in black and white.

Really really boring movie, too much narrating

Why does everybody love this movie it sucks the story is confusing this should be number 1

Can't stand the acting. And Brittany Murphy - please go away with half of the narrators

52The Dark Knight Rises

Just because "the dark knight" is a good movie, do not mean that "the dark knight rises" is a good one. The movie has so many plot holes! And Bane is not scary at all! - hurrhurrman

The movie is boring and gives Batman more punishment than any others. It is a total disgrace to Batman because in the hole, he takes advice from pedophiles.

I dislike the overly dark tone. Batman should be dark but it should also have a sense of fun, which this doesn't.

Overrated for sure! No where near as good as the first two.

53Fifty Shades of Grey

This should have made the main list. What a waste of time.

It's A Movie? I Thought Is A Porno That Had A Song Sang By A Half Human Half Tree
And Another one Sang By A Barbie Doll That Can Talk

Its was one of the most popular movies when it was released,so I think its overrated,cause it shouldn't have got that much of attention - zxm

55Cars

As a huge racing fan, I used to like this movie when it came out (I was about 8 years old) and I hate it now. Never even watched the second one. The whole series just gives racing a bad name. I didn't realize that then because I was young and ignorant, but I realize it now. - mister83

Why do a lot of people hate this movie? It's actually a good movie. It's just the second one that's not as good as this one.

56Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
57The English Patient

Possibly the longest, most boring, self indulgent piece of crap I've ever had the misfortune of watching. 2.7 hours of my life that I'll never get back.

Why does this need to win 9 Academy Awards

59Fight Club

Clearly those who dislike this movie are too stupid to understand it. It's a masterpiece and should be commemorated for being amazing.

If Brad Pitt is in it, then, it must be bad because he is simply not a good actor.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who thought this movie was stupid, just had a cool name

Too much violence for nothing. Pure sensationalism. What a bore!

60Man of Steel

Man Of Steel is UNDER-RATED! If anything every other Superman is over-rated --- even I and II! I've always felt that if Superman were real, people would fear him. come on, the fact that he is an alien alone would be a very, very big deal in real life. How would prize-winning journalist Lois Lane NOT know Superman is Clark Kent minus glasses in real life? The villain, Xod, was realistic too. He simply had a job to do. No real villains ever view themselves as villains. People were simply upset that it was so different than any other Superman story and the fact he kills Xod. And they just don't get it! SOMEONE FINALLY GOT THIS STORY SPOT-ON RIGHT! the best Superman Movie ever and the most realistic by far! Man Of Steel has "Made Before It's Time" written all over it. It will age well and become a mainstay on under-rated lists by 2030. Mark my words!

Overrated without a doubt. I'm a big fan of Amy Adams but she is the worst Lois Lane in history ( not her performance ). She should at least have changed her hairstyle and changed her color of her hair. The movie itself was too slow at some moments or too long and intense at moments ( the combination of action and drama were poorly made up ).

I'm not sure how this one's overrated. It's got a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it's really more underrated and true to Superman law.

This movie was bad, but most people don't like it so it isn't overrated.
