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!

An Extremely INCREDIBLE movie But Way Too Overrated - VideoGamefan5

2 The Dark Knight Rises

The worst movie on imdb top 250.

Terrible film!

3 Scarface
4 The Shawshank Redemption

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

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

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

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.

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.

6 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

7 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

0 out of 10

8 Django Unchained

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

9 American Beauty

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

10 Citizen Kane

Worst ending ever..Rosebud is negligible.

The Newcomers

? Green Mile
? Gladiator

The Contenders

11 Amelie

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

12 How to Train Your Dragon
13 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.

14 The Matrix

Does anyone still care bout it no Kay then

15 Zootopia

Awful SJW Crap

16 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.

17 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
18 Black Swan
19 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.

20 La La Land

Its Not Bad But Its Overrated - VideoGamefan5
