Top 10 Easiest Ways to Make a Movie Overrated
The Top Ten
Worry so much about the "hero" being woke that you forget to make a good movie.
With Wonder Woman 2017 still being undoubtedly the best (or at least most tolerable) thing to come out of this notorious trend so far - xandermartin98
I know I already have much lower choices on this list to vote for to be higher on this list, but people should not have a negative opinion on diversity, female empowerment (and empowerment in general) or different races than white. Maybe I was missing the point and you people actually honor these kinds of people who stand for that. Maybe not. But even I am aware of when things get SJW-pandering, like in Beauty and the Beast (2017) from the same director that gave us Teitard (I mean both the franchise and its whiny, edgy fandom of anti-egalitarianists).
Even though I loved Black panther,I know the real reason it got so much praise..aside from being AWESOME - Flutters-
LMAO while reading this. Great list by the way. Funny and true at the same time - Joeljohns249
good point - MRRANDOM
Â€śWhat do you MEAN, killing every white person on Earth is a bad idea?! â€ť - Kanye West- I mean- Killmonger, Black Panther - xandermartin98
Black Panther doesn't have a preachy message. It's been out for decades, created by the late, great Stan Lee who was white. - RobertWisdom
Wait, were we talking about Ralph Breaks the Internet with its overlying "men s*ck" message?
Combine with "give it a super-preachy moral/political message" (another item on this list) and you've got "Ralph Breaks the Internet".
Ironically, of Ready Player One's MANY horribly crippling problems, this one is actually far and away the worst, to put it LIGHTLY - xandermartin98
But this won't actually make it more overrated for anyone over 10
This should be #1.
Surprised this isn't Top 3 at least. - truckturner
As ridiculously beautiful as the film most certainly is indeed, I must say:
(cough, Spirited Away, cough)
Hate to say it, but Iron Giant as well - xandermartin98
AKA-Roma (and any other POS leftist fairy art house films out there)
-It ain't about being masculinity, I just see bad films as bad films, the movie was made for critics to love (I don't need a five minute opening scene of running water and dog crap to get a 'message'), also I don't like superhero movies FYI (A bit overrated if you ask me) - RustyNail
I respect your opinion, but Roma was the best film of 2018, and I would say the best Spanish language film since Pan's Labyrinth. I surmise you haven't seen it, so you don't really have any grounds for your "criticism".
I urge you to watch it (it's on Netflix), but if your masculinity is so frail that you can't even watch a movie without superheroes, that's cool too. - xPorkless
Cough cough disney - MRRANDOM
Example: The Emoji Movie. - MChkflaguard_Yt
YOUâ€™RE SO EDGY, THANOS
I LOVE IT (I LOVE IT)
JEAN GREY ALREADY BEAT YOU TO THE PUNCH, THOUGH (DISINTEGRATING CHARACTERS, I MEAN) - xandermartin98
Pretty sure that Titanic ticks both boxes - xandermartin98
I'm looking at you, almost everything ever made by a certain greedy mouse or any of his sub-divisions/acquisitions. - PerfectImpulseX
The Lilo & Stitch movies and Frozen were great though.
I'm also actually looking forward to Frozen 2 as well. - PerfectImpulseX
Didn't read far enough to get this voted. - errrr
Every Marvel movie is the same thing but just with a different plot and characters. - MemeTheKeem
Marvel always steals the spotlight - Neonco31
Because The Dark Knight was the movie Batman deserved...but not the movie that DC needed to make every single one of its other movies try to copy just for the pure sake of it - xandermartin98
Despite already being about memes, "Ralph Breaks the Internet" still spawned at least two obnoxious ones in itself: the "what kind of princess are you" scene and the pancake bunny.
Wouldn't that be any popular movie, I mean it is the audience that creates the memes, if a lot of people watched and enjoyed the movie there will be a lot of memes - germshep24
The easiest choices require the weakest wills - xandermartin98
Jesus black panther again! - MRRANDOM
Don't forget to do for it what "Hamilton" did for actual American history as far as casting
Even "better", make absolutely sure the remake appeals to "modern sensibilities" (euphemism for for being Tumblr-woke/totally SJW friendly), and make absolutely sure the audience is aware of it. Emma Watson's "Beauty and the Beast", anyone?
I'm looking at you, every live-action movie based on a animated Disney film...
Yeesh! - PerfectImpulseX
The Lifeless Lion King - xandermartin98
Often results in absolutely PHENOMENAL movies, however, such as (despite how obnoxiously overrated Radiohead itself is) Suspiria 2018 - xandermartin98
Disney being a repeat offender over the last couple years
Ralph Breaks the Internet, Zootopia, The Emoji Movie...
Not really, not many will go see it - germshep24
Four words: Ralph Breaks the Internet
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: Reflection and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: Detonation do this quite a bit but they are both still great movies though.
And yes, I know that they and the rest of the Nanoha movies take place in a different continuity from other Nanoha-related media but... - PerfectImpulseX
One of the easiest ways - darthvadern
A Christmas Story 24-Hour Marathon everyone. I mean, I respect A Christmas Story and all, but seriously?! A Christmas Story marathon every year?! - OnyxDash
It's a Wonderful Life, one of the most boring Christmas movies and yet is talked about being the best simply because no one licensed the movie making it essentially free to play on air, which Mr. Turner took to mean play on repeat every christmas for the best 5 decades - germshep24
The Lyrical Nanoha franchise isn't entirely a movie franchise per say but it has "gay coded"/LGBT characters and it's awesome. - PerfectImpulseX
I.e. a character who has no spouse or obvious love interest, yet something about them (like living up to a stereotype, their story "resembling" a "coming out" story, or being "too close" to a friend or even sibling of the same gender) screams "LGBTQ" to those who look for it. Examples: Shank and Yes from "Ralph Breaks the Internet", Pleakly from "Lilo & Stitch", Clawhouser from "Zootopia", or Elsa from "Frozen".
Ironically this actually sets BACK the LGBTQ movement
2016 Ghostbusters, anyone?
You mean like Space Jam?
Disney has be VERY bad about this over the last few years, with all their major outlets (animated movies, Marvel, and Star Wars).
Avengers: Endgame, enough said. - PerfectImpulseX
Oh yeah that super overrated movie Memento - xPorkless
This will make more people want to see the movie.
What is it about this woman? She just plays her "Friends" character over and over.
Diversity=genocide - Murphdog405
Face it, had "Brokeback Mountain" not featured a gay couple (ergo been seen as "groundbreaking"), it would've been long forgotten and decried as not Oscar-worthy. You know, like most drama romance films.
All it takes to make a cliche ridden romance flick the best thing ever(TM) is make both leads the same gender. Having a gay or lesbian couple in the background somewhere or as minor characters has the same effect.
The Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and Sailor Moon franchises say otherwise.
They both feature LGBT characters and they aren't too overrated at all (at least in my opinion).
However, to me, Steven Universe, The Loud House, and Adventure Time are all terrible shows though regardless of if they have LGBT characters or not. - PerfectImpulseX
"Wonder Woman 2017 stars a woman and was directed by a woman" was all I heard in the weeks leading up to that film's release.
Like an actor, director, writer, or producer. And even if none of that affects the movie at all.
Avengers: Infinity War/Avengers: Endgame, most final movies in YA novel-based franchises, and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: Reflection/Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: Detonation all are examples of this kind of tactic. - PerfectImpulseX
This can also apply to most of their original series as well. - PerfectImpulseX
Like a certain recent Disney flick?
Because apparently that alone makes a movie great. It overshadows any other good things about a film, and somehow negates any bad things.
Again, Avengers: Infinity War, enough said. - PerfectImpulseX
Okay, this usually is not a *deliberate* occurrence, but let's be honest. How many people saw "Alice Through the Looking Glass" solely because it was Alan Rickman's last film? How much praise and Oscar buzz would have surrounded "The Dark Knight" were it not for the untimely death of Heath Ledger? Can't think of any specific examples right now, but I'm sure there are some movies that got popular because they were some prominent director's last.
I AM well aware that it's a rather low-hanging (purple) fruit of an example,
but Josh Brolin as Thanos in Avengers 3 and 4, enough said - xandermartin98
Even if said views aren't actually in the movie itself
