Most Overrated Movies on IMDb's Top 250


The Top Ten

1 The Dark Knight

Like it the first time because the Joker (overrated himself as he has no emotional depth, just laughs in every scene) but the second time; actually playing attention to the story, it was just plain silly.

I just didn't see what all the hype was about and Christian bale's character was rather boring!

A movie that is awesome but a disgrace for batman!...considering this to be one of the best movies of all time is ABSURD!

Ok let's see some of the dark knight flaws:

1)Little to no two face: Don't get me wrong, he wasn't suppose to be the main focus of the film or even some of them but he is one of the most complex and most interesting characters in batman history, and this movie didn't do him justice (no pun intended). And yes I know he is really good as Harvey Dent, but when he becomes two face, not only he becomes a "practically" different character, but his transformation from hero to villain (mentally) is kinda rushed

2)Christian Bale as batman: He doesn't blend in with the character very well and he is not that interesting in this movie particularly (if you want more of why Christian Bale doesn't really seem like a good casting choice for batman, check out Nostalgia Critic's:old vs new Batman vs the dark knight)

3) The batman voice: I know a lot of people have been making fun of this voice, but I needed to address it. This voice is just so silly, and it is really distracting ...more

2 The Dark Knight Rises

For this movie to be on IMDb's top 250 is favoritism at its worst.

The worst movie on imdb top 250.

Terrible film!

This movie sucks.

3 The Shawshank Redemption

It's a great movie, but I don't think it belongs in the top spot.

Very good movie, but kind surprising its on top. - zxm

Shouldn't even be on 250; its average movie, one time view only - dubbelvla

The fans of this film are the most annoying bastards on Earth. If you go onto reddit and say something bad about it, the Shawshank fanboys will jump down your throat.

4 Inception

Pretty good and fun to watch. But what is just listed a second ago is why Inception should not be the 13 greatest movie ever it is more of an action movie.

Good movie, but overrated by unintelligent morons.

Pretty good but not the 13th best movie ever.

The film is weird, but that don't make it a masterpiece.

5 Marvel's The Avengers

I just don't understand the overpowering popularity of this film. Yes, it is an entertaining summer popcorn movie with lots of action and special effects. But is it really of great quality that deserves to be compared to classic award-winners? I just don't see it.

This movie sucked. I hated this movie. A horrible film.

This movie sucks

This movie doesn't deserved to be in top 250 but its 7-12 years old cringey fandom just can not understand it.

6 American Beauty

The USA made much better films - Alexandr

I don't think this film is very good at all.

American Beauty is just pretentious, self important crap for creepy and sad middle-age men who never heard of the words "Jailbait" or "Statutory Rape".

7 The Matrix

Does anyone still care bout it no Kay then

8 Scarface

I think criminals gave most of the IMDb votes to this movie.

9 Interstellar

Christopher Nolan is the most overrated director on IMDb.

Christopher Nolan gets way too much credit from his fans.

10 Kill Bill: Volume 1

It's weird that many similar films made before this one aren't even placed that high on imdb. Not that they deserve to. This dumb movie don't deserve to either. I guess this one was placed higher than those similar films because this film had a blonde woman as the main character and those similar movies didn't.

The Contenders

11 Amelie

This Movie is really boring! For Sure it's an overrated movie

12 Saving Private Ryan
13 Pulp Fiction

This did not entertain me in the slightest.

The most overrated piece of useless trash I've ever seen - Alexandr

More like T.V. movie for me. Plain boring

14 Django Unchained

I'm really surprised that this is in the top 250. - PositronWildhawk

15 Fight Club

This should be no. 1. Stupid movie!

16 The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
17 Zootopia

Frozen deserved to be on the Top 250 more than this terrible Shark Tale rip-off aimed at furries. - PerfectImpulseX

Awful SJW Crap

18 Braveheart

One of the worst films on IMDb's Top 250.

19 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
20 La La Land

Its Not Bad But Its Overrated - VideoGamefan5
