Most Overrated Movies on IMDb's Top 250


The Top Ten

1 The Dark Knight The Dark Knight

I'm not really sure this should beat out Citizen Kane on the Top 250, let alone be the 2nd or 3rd on the damn list! - ArchAces

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!

4 Marvel's The Avengers 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.

Feel like watching Transformers: Dark Of The Moon twin brother. Too much CGI for me sometimes makes any recent film include this one cheap and crap.

5 The Shawshank Redemption 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

6 Scarface Scarface
7 Django Unchained Django Unchained

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

8 Amelie Amelie

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

9 The Matrix The Matrix

Does anyone still care bout it no Kay then

10 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

The Contenders

11 American Beauty American Beauty

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

12 Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Sweet fairytale but not pure brilliance - Alexandr

Not the best in the trilogy and certainly not even Top 100 film, let alone Top 10.

13 Inception 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.

Pretty good but not the 13th best movie ever.

Good movie, but overrated by unintelligent morons.

14 Saving Private Ryan Saving Private Ryan
15 The Godfather The Godfather

I bet you all the same people who say Godfather is overrated have seen all Adam Sandler movies and rated half of them 10/10 - farckashkun

This movie was great but far not the greatest ever - Alexandr

I fell asleep in the first half hour. BORING

17 The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
18 Kill Bill: Volume 1 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.

19 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
20 Fight Club Fight Club
