Top 10 Highly Overrated Things About/From Certain Movies

Please note that this doesn't always mean "bad", per se

The Top Ten

1 The Minions from Despicable Me

I wish the series focused on gru more

When THESE things are seriously able to completely replace your ACTUAL so-called main character (Gru),
you KNOW that your film series has got some AWFULLY serious writing issues to say the least - xandermartin98

2 Titanic's generic and cliched "romantic heartbreak" plot

This film is pretty corny

The film's theme song being arguably the cheesiest Celine Dion love ballad ever made doesn't help either - xandermartin98

3 (Disney's) Frozen's soundtrack and character cast

Especially "Let It Go"

At one point, you'd better believe that Let It Go was actually THE most overplayed of the Christmas songs
(as for the movie itself, it's honestly a pretty decent film on its own merits but horrifically bad by Classic Disney standards) - xandermartin98

4 Avengers: Infinity War's portrayal of Thanos

Memes aside, he's great and all (and easily one of live-action film's all-time greatest achivements in CGI graphic design for sure) but not exactly up to par with the Dark Knight Joker (who, by the way, is also about as overrated as movie villains get, just for the record) - xandermartin98

5 How sad of a movie Toy Story 3 actually is

This might be subjective, sure, but come ON; haven't you EVER seen Schindler's List, Shawshank Redemption or WALL-E, just to name a few? (Also, this film was actually kind of weak when compared to its predecessors, to be honest) - xandermartin98

Shawshank Redemption wasn't really that sad. Sure, Brooks commits suicide and it was emotional, and a couple of other death scenes, but overall Toy Story 3 was more sad than Shawshank if you ask me - darthvadern

6 The titular main protagonist of Shrek

"I love Shrek so much, I have all the merchandise and movies. I pray to him every night" - xandermartin98

7 Star Wars Episode V's "Darth Father" plot twist

Maybe it's just that I saw the prequels before the original just because chronologically it is so, people should kinda get over the whole vader twist. One twist does not automatically make a movie better than the others - darthvadern

If you know at least a reasonable lick of German, you can clearly see that it's even in his NAME for crying out loud - xandermartin98

8 The jokes in Austin Powers

(insert cliche sex joke here)

(insert pop-culture/television-trope gag there)

(remind viewer every ten seconds or so that the film is a blatant ripoff of James Bond)

(? )

(profit) - xandermartin98

9 How much better the first Michael Bay Transformers movie actually was overall than the rest of its series

Don't be fooled by the hype; it's still INCREDIBLY lame and mediocre outside of a few specific action scenes - xandermartin98

It was terrible
Like all the other Bay movies other than his first movie - iliekpiez

Third was better, and I even think the second one was a bit more enjoyable than the original - darthvadern

Dark of the Moon was best

10 How bad Batman & Robin actually is overall

"A Bat...Credit Card? They gave him a Bat...CREDIT CARD?! " - xandermartin98

The Contenders

11 The Intelligence of the Writing and Directing of Mulholland Drive
12 The Conjuring Storyline Scariness
13 Incredibles 2's Storyline and Appeal
14 Avengers: Infinity War's Twist Ending

This is what Marvel did to get billions of dollars more and even more money from and to Fortnite.

More like anti-twist ending if you ask me - xandermartin98

15 Troll 2's "so bad it's good" appeal

Creedence and Arnold aside, So Bad It's Horrible is a WAY better term for THIS film overall
(go watch The Room and Freddy Got Fingered if you want a REAL "so bad it's good" movie) - xandermartin98

16 Fight Club’s “split personality” plot twist
17 Black Panther 2018’s anti-racism message

Having a anti-racism message is good though - Kuro

Whoever put this on the list is a racist and sexist. Otherwise, why else would any anti-racism message be on this list?!?! You don't call me or other people the N word if we were black!

18 The Terminator Quote: "I'll Be Back."
19 The Dark Knight’s portrayal of the Joker

I liked Two-Face almost just as much, honestly - xandermartin98

20 Sausage Piano scene from Freddy Got Fingered

One if the few choices on this list I actually agree with. Scratch that, it could be replaced by THE OVERALL MOVIE! People are just jealous and hateful to put Harry Potter-related things instead of Twilight-related things. This list has a clear answer to why it could have been better.

21 Rey from Star Wars Episode VII

In a way she is a bland Mary Sue, and in Episode VIII she wasn't a Mary Sue, but she ignored Kylo Ren - darthvadern

22 Keanu Reeves’ acting performance as Neo in The Matrix
23 Samuel Jackson’s character (Jules) in Pulp Fiction
24 The jokes in Monty Python and The Holy Grail

They are hilarious. - iliekpiez

25 The Dark Knight Rises’ portrayal of Bane
26 “Here’s Johnny” scene from The Shining
27 Quicksilver’s death scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron
28 The Room’s “so bad it’s good” appeal
29 Wonder Woman 2018’s portrayal of Wonder Woman
30 Freddy Krueger from Nightmare On Elm Street
31 Michael Myers from Halloween
32 The titular main protagonist(s) of the James Bond series
33 Lola Bunny from Space Jam
34 The theme song from Space Jam
35 Wall-E’s Green Aesop
36 The Incredibles’ Syndrome identity twist
37 The soundtrack and especially storyline of The Lion King
38 The pop-culture sight gags in Ready Player One
39 Star Wars Episode III’s Anakin vs Kenobi lightsaber duel
40 Boba Fett from Star Wars Episode VI
41 Darth Maul from Star Wars Episode I
42 Darth Vader from Star Wars Episode IV
43 Large Marge scene from Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure
44 The storyline of The Lord of The Rings
45 Arnold Schwarzenegger's Acting Performance as the T-800 in the Terminator
46 The Dark Knight Portrayal of Batman
47 Suicide Squad’s Portrayal of the Joker and Harley Quinn
48 The Storyline and Character Cast of Harry Potter
49 Lotso Twist from Toy Story 3
50 Avengers: Infinity War's Cgi Effects

Jaw-dropping on Thanos himself; lame mostly everywhere else - xandermartin98
