Star Wars is the most overstated movie in history. It's just dumb crap and lifesavers. George Lucas movies are the worst
I shall destroy everyone who hates this movie because it was pure perfection.
The majority of people who said this was the best movie of 2015 are probably just blind Star Wars fanboysV1 Comment
I actually like the changes that Kubrick made. It's nothing like the book and that's ok. Adding the maze was a great metaphor and nice visual touch not to mention the added potential for tension. The problem is in the word potential. It's a horror movie! Build some tension and add some scares for gods sake! This movie is almost two and a half hours long. And for the most part nothing happens. When something does happen it's over before it can get scary. Seriously, the most frightening thing that happens to Jack is that he kisses a naked old woman.
It's not because this movie is boring or anything, it's just that almost everyone calls this "thing" a classic or a masterpiece. I mean, COME ON. The film completely destroys everything that was wonderful about the book. The acting is terrible. The wife and the kid is annoying, Jack Nicholson is terrific of course, but turning from a psychopath to an homicidal psychopath isn't what I call character develepmont. The rest of the movie is filled with shots of the hotel, creepy occurences that are neither discussed nor mentioned afterwards, a bad and confusing script and finally it ends with a close-up shot of a photograph that eventually leads to these secret messages or meanings that are supossedly hidden throughout this whole movie. Also even back then it wasn't well received (It was nominated for 2 Razzies)
This movie was great and the acting of Jack Nicholson in this movie was mind blowing,I admit that it isn't a very scary movie but it's a quite good movie to watch and people don't much about this movie about other movies - zxm
Not overrated at all. This was a game changer for the horror genre.V1 Comment
The stage musical is great, the movie is okay - Username123
Went on too long, and the plot shift in the second half was awkward.
This is underrated, not overrated.
How is this overratedit was panned by critics and audiences alike
After flopping in Asia it was sent to America.....the rest is History - preachinpreach
Somehow Ang Lee manages to make his fight scenes fights look both unbelieveable and boring.V1 Comment
I'd say it's a bit overrated, but Kevin Smith improved this with Mallrats and Chasing Amy. - BeatlesFan1964
Lord Of The Rings And Anything Relating To It Is Awesome
Noo this is part of the best movie trilogy ever made
The entire series is overrated.

Overrated, Annoying the hype is everywhere! From curtains, to clothing, to stuffed animals, IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE.
I'm 18 years old girl and I really like this movie. I don't think it is overrated at all. This movie can be watched over and over again which is that what I do with this one and the first one only skipping little parts of it but watch most of it again. In fact I've been wanting to get minion or minion thing for a long time now and I will get it soon since where I live which is Canada has these things and since my birthday is coming up in 2 and a half week I can ask my parents to get them to me as part of a gift basket present. Having said that really liked the movie and is not overrated at all. - LucyLu18
Despicable me 1 was tolarable, but this one, adding almost no important storyline to the franchise, coming before the even worse " Minions" movie, was just so much to take. - alimarashianV3 Comments
I can't believe that this movie is still concidered as the greatest movie of all time. I love the work of Orson Welles but this movie is definitively not his best. By far are his movies like for instance " A touch of evil ", " The lady from Shangai " way much better. The latter two movies are even better in camera work and techniques, not to mention the story and the script. Why " Citizen Kane " is so overrated is really beyond me 'cause if you watch all the work that Orson Welles has done then this one is not that great. It's just a good movie that you will watch once or twice, but that's about it. It's certainly not his best and even some non-Orson Welles at that time were better. Too overrated for sure.
How the hell is this not number 1? So many people consider this to be the best movie of all time, and it has aged very poorly. What was once revolutionary is now just a movie with basic film techniques, terrible acting (except from Orson Welles), and a plot that is downright BORING.
How anybody compares this to the Godfather is beyond any form of reason.
Great movie. Yes. Greatest movie of all time. No. -
It is not the greatest movie, it's still good, but it's reputation as the "greatest movie of all time" is really laughable as time went on.V4 Comments
NO! WHY DO PEOPLE HATE WILL SMITH SO MUCH! HIS ACTING WAS AMAZING IN THIS MOVIE! THERE ARE ALSO SAD, TEAR JERKING SCENESV1 Comment
Not a bad movie, but come on, seriously not even top 20 war movie. Liked the movie, just hated the hype. Perfect example of a good-yet-overrated movie.
This movie has nothing to it. I wanted to kill myself during the longest, most boring movie I have ever watched.
This movie is underrated if anything, people just hate it because it's not as good as the original trilogy. But really, is that even possible?
Go to any Star Wars discussion and see how many people sight phantom menace as the best in the series because very few if any will say that I don't think it's the best but a lot of Star Wars fans hate it so it shouldn't be on the list - Gamer4life
I don't think this movie is underrated or overrated. It's just bad. My least favorite Star Wars movie, definitely.
