Top 10 Most Overrated Sci-Fi MoviesMontyPython
The Top Ten
Don't get me wrong, Guardians of the Galaxy was pretty good, but some are saying it is the best movie of the year...
It wasn't even the best Marvel movie of the year, Captain America: The Winter Soldier was much better. It's really overrated
I've never heard of this movie, anywhere, yet it gets so much praise here! Can't we praise movies that are more eminent throughout everybody? - Turkeyasylum
It's not even that good, the villain is lame, the CGI effects are decent, but not great, the story is just dumb, and most of the characters are half baked. Marvel fanboys/fangirls are just blind to any actual criticism against their beloved... thing - Empoperking
It was just okay.V 2 Comments
Matrix I, is good. It's the two sequels that let down the whole Matrix saga.
This is one of the greatest movies ever! - IronSabbathPriest
Bad movie, very bad movie. This wasn't science fiction, this was science fantasy, thanks to Kip Thorne and his fantasy theories, we are now seeing stupid stories coming into Sci-Fi. It's a very sad time for Science Fiction, the days of Asimov and Clarke are gone. If you really want a good Sci-Fi movie, there is nothing better than the original Forbidden Planet (I say original for they are writing a new Forbidden Planet now-dear god no! ), and the original The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951 version). We will never see movies like that again...so sad, so very sad.
Interstellar and overrated, no ways it's an ultra epic movie and people call it overrated, I only voted to get my point out - Toucan
If anything, this is underrated. It has no place on this list. - PositronWildhawk
The whole ending is a plot holeV 1 Comment
Another one of my favourite films. And the best Terminator film. - IronSabbathPriest
The movie is good and the best of all terminator
Am I the only one who likes salvation althought I don't think it's the best of the groupV 2 Comments
Most of the time, its just hard to follow and kind of confusing... Most movies should be leisurely or entertaining, but I don't want to have to think during them... - keycha1n
This movie would be okay if it were an hour shorter. It's so mediocre and by the end the slow motion effects and Cobb's love story were really Boring.
No. I love this movie.
I love movies that make me think.
I do not think this belongs on the list. But whatever.
Alien resurrection is overrated and that film is considered better than alien 3
Alien and Aliens are not overrated. Not even close! I guess our modern stupid superhero fans vote for these films cause they don't know anothing about REAL sci-fi
Hey, if I have no mistake, this list was already created by someone. Sto stealing ideas from other users!
Okay I found the other one just now. But again, when I typed in the idea for this list, NOTHING AT ALL came up. Don't blame me. - MontyPython
I understand how this could be sci-fi, but it's not that overrated. - Turkeyasylum
The entire Star Wars saga is overrated. No serious story, no serious acting, and the sci-fi is more fantasy than science fiction; The Force, you've got to be kidding me, sounds like some sort of New Age pyramid energy scam. Harrison Ford clowning around like an idiot. Nope, Star Wars sucks, and sucks bad.
I sat ill don't get why Star Wars is even popular anymore. The originals are good but the prequels ruin the entire series. They are so awful. And the new one is A New Hope fan fiction. It is good but incredibly overrated. No idea why it is second on top ten movie series of all time. Should be about 8th
This is an awesome film, but my favourite star wars film is Return Of The Jedi. - IronSabbathPriest
Whoever insulted PositronWildhawk is a pretentious douche! Seriously!V 7 Comments
Come on, Alien is as good as The Godfather, Fight Club, The Good The Bad & THe Ugly and some other classics. We must agree with real fact! This movie is a masterpiece!
What? This is probably the greatest science fiction movie ever made! How come it's overrated? Perfect story that inspired plenty of other movies
A really great movie. But more of a horror movie than a sci-fi. - IronSabbathPriest
Creator of this list has a very limited knowledges about Sci-Fi! Alien is a cult classic!
Did I say these movies were terrible? No. So stop jumping into conclusions. I study films. And according to IMDB, Alien is known as a Sci-Fi. So actually think before you post, kid. - MontyPython
I'm definitely a minority but 2010 is more interesting and the novel that this was made around the same time are superior, hell Star Trek The Motion Picture deserves more praise, that movies story kept me interested from beginning to end
Not terrible just feels like most of it was empty space for a stretched out plot
Most people who vote for this movie are those kinds of people who hate slow paced films...which believe me it is slow paced. But still a fine film. Not the best ever made, but is something that should be viewed at least once
Which thing are you referring to, there has been 3 so far.
This film isn't for everyone but its certainly not bad, it took me a few viewings for me to appreciate this film
Deserves zero praise. Unnecessary remake of A New Hope. And not a good one, it doesn't correct any mistakes the original had, it doesn't pull a dark twist to make itself unique. It made everything that was great about A New Hope into generic mediocre sci-fi, everything that was mediocre, bad and everything that was bad, terrible.
Not bad at all although I feel it overshadows the other films because all other star trek films are compared to this. There are minor issues such as Khan and Chekov knowing each other even thought they didn't meet, the reliant not noticing ceti alpha 6 was missing but these issues don't ruin the film, but do hamper it. I'll admit star trek 6 is my personal favorite, I felt the director nick meyer who also directed wrath of khan learned from this to make in my opinion a slightly better film. I agree that the motion picture is underrated too.
Also carol and David marcus were never in the show so if their so important were did they come from
Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe they (carol and David marcus)were introduced in a novel so I'm toldV 2 Comments
I actually couldn't finish it the first time around. I was that disinterested with it. I can watch it fully now but I still don't think it's brilliant like everyone says. - BKAllmighty
