Most Overrated Movies

preachinpreach
Many won't agree at first I know this. But watch one of these films again and think.

The Top Ten

1 Titanic

They met, had sex, boat sank, he died, she died. There is the whole movie in ten words.

Start with Kate Winslet's faux California accent in a character who should have sounded barely different from a London socialite. Next, accept for a moment that a cosseted aristocrat of 1912 was a secret sex fiend (entirely plausible). Would she not have heretofore been tuned into the gossip of all the horrors that befell easy girls? I'm not saying she wouldn't have jumped a low-born drifter, but not without wildly mixed feelings before, during and especially after.

Now the laws of physics and physiology. The water outside is cold enough to put rime ice on Jack's failing body. But inside the ship, apparently it warms to the temperature of a cool swimming pool. Prolonged dunking only brings hypothermia under an open sky.

Nothing about this movie is original. The story of poor boy-rich girl has been done hundreds of times before, the dialogue is so sappy and cheesy, and the movie is way too long. By the time the ship sinks, I'm rooting for these characters to die. Kinda weird how a movie can win a million Oscars including Best Picture, but not even be NOMINATED for SCREENPLAY? there is a good reason why it wasn't nominated for Screenplay, because the screenplay was horrible! The only good thing about this movie was the costumes and set design, it deserved to win for that, nothing else though. The score is bland, the story is bland, the acting is bland, it's just bland. Not deserving of any praise, whatsoever. Yet, Pearl Harbor was panned for these same reasons, yet Titanic gets showered with awards despite being on the same level of blandness.

This movie sucks!

Pocahontas in space! So original! - InsertNameHere

I am not saying that Avatar was a bad movie. I just do not understand how a live-action version of Ferngully (let's be honest, that is what it is) can garner such acclaim and become the biggest most-successful film of all time. It was entertaining. That is as far as I would go. I find the overabundence of CGI a little distracting and the storyline common. Why was this nominated for so many awards while truly brilliant and challenging and original films were overlooked?

I saw the movie. It wasn't great. Good, not bad, but not great. There're some good action scenes, directing skills and CGI, yet story and general tone and prevention of boring people wasn't very worked on. A 7.9/10 by IMBb is understandable, I'd give it a 6.9/10, yet does it really deserve a 2.8 BILLION dollar box office success? I mean, good movies don't get this much credit, yet Avatar is the MOST MONEY-MAKING MOVIE OF ALL TIME! Some of my favourite movies like The Shawshank Redemption, The Return of the King and Die Hard were great, yet they got a 58 Million, 376 Million and 366 million. And all of those movies got WAY higher ratings, Redemption even scoring highest on the top 250 on IMDb, LOTr getting 9th and and Die hard only scoring 8.2/10, but, better movies deserve more recognition.

Found the story plot-less and unoriginal. I wouldn't say it's is a bad film but it's very overrated.

3 Frozen

Frozen is an okay movie, but people talk about it like Jesus Christ wrote it or something. The songs, characters, and plot are very bland compared to the other classic Disney films and it doesn't deserve all the hype.

When a movie made from Disney is worse than "Tangled" and "Tinker Bell", it's one of the worst movies ever.

One time, I was at the theater, and I saw the trailer for this movie. I thought it would be a good movie. I WAS WRONG! When it came out, it wasn't such a big deal. I thought it would just be one of those lackluster movies nobody cared about, but NO! Almost every little girl in the world was infected with Idina Menzel's song "Let it go." The songs COMPLETELY SUCKED, Elsa is an anti-hero who runs away from all possibilities and opportunities, Olaf is dumb thanks to his song "In Summer," which was dumb because HE IS A SNOWMAN! They will melt in summer. The villain was blander than steak without seasoning, and Anna is just annoying. There were only THREE things about this movie that was good. They were Kristof, Sven, and the animation. The WORST thing about this movie was the song, "Let it Go," which I think is worse than any ...more

By the way people were acting over it, I thought Frozen was going to be the best movie of the year... Maybe decade. But it turned out not to even be a classic. Disney has far better movies. Whoever says 'Frozen is better than the Lion King' is full of crap. It doesn't even make the top 30 of Disney's best movies. All my life, I've never seen a movie more overrated. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

4 The Hunger Games

It was great but everyone was calling it the best movie ever and its not. - DrRyAn

My general sentiment after seeing this movie was, "who cares? " I could not find one original thought or plot point in the entire film. What did this story about a dystopian society bring to the table that each and every other book or movie with a similar premise has not already covered? I found the characters mostly stiff and one-dimensional, so it wasn't even engrossing on a personal level. I was completely shocked to find out how well-repected this series is.

Such shaky camera and the characters are dull, stiff, and simple. I mean Katniss is very boring and has no personality it drives me crazy. The plot is very ridiculous and has lots of holes, it is super predictable and it is just not very interesting, Plus all the good characters die such as rue, cinna, finnick, and prim! Peeta is such a burden, he is a sissy and he needed katniss to save his ass. This movie is so bland it's just a girl with a bow and arrow who survived poverty and all of a sudden become super special, then saves the day! Such a cliche dystopian novel. Very Pathetic. - missyweirdo

I honestly liked this movie - toptendudes

5 Twilight

Twilight, taking every cliche and wrapping it up into one big movie SERIES. Top 3 should be the entire movie series, not just number 1.

How is it overrated if everyone hates it? It couldn't be rated any lower. I can't name a single person who likes it.

ruined the whole concept of vampires and werewolves. they turned lycans to dogs and vampires to chandeliers

All this movie had was female oriented smut, and the biggest cliche that all females want to happen, to have all their troubles taken away by a muscular man. It's ironic that girls get mad at boys for wanting a girl who is hot, when they just want a guy that muscular and handsome. These movies were the number 1 thing me and all boys across the world dreaded every year they came out, if they remake twilight and 5 more of these movies come out, I will blow my brains out

This list is a better love story than Twilight

6 La La Land

On my first viewing I thought it was amazing. On my second viewing...was kinda boring. The flashy spectacle and melodramatic relationship between Mia and Sebastian only were made for a one time view I guess. A wanna be "Singing in the rain" (But kinda nice try thou) The visuals, music and cast are splendid. As for the pacing and memorable elements. Not really, by moments it seemed like the film was of "art cinema" genre cause it lost me a couple times during the 1st half. They just rushed into the dancing bits and music-romantic moments the whole first half and they neglected the element of relatability and connection (this by not having a great script that matches the visuals and music). In short the movie was ok. But is, all in, a lot of noise and little substance. The ending was really good thou. But still, the development into getting there felt (and was) really slobby. Overrated indeed.

Outstanding performances, awesome use of colors and lightning but...boring as hell. Showtunes sounding like outdated forties / fifties musicals, dancing that tries to look ( and not succeeded ) like a Fred Astaire / Ginger Rogers movie. In my opinion, a movie that was not oscar-worthy.

Can't believe the critics gave this movie a higher rating than Hidden Figures.

What do people see in this movie other than its just a musical essentially. - htoutlaws2012

You know this movie sucks when you can't remember a single bloody song in it!

7 The Lion King

Who put this here? It may be overrated, but for a very, VERY GOOD reason.

If it's overrated for a good reason, then it isn't overrated, it's just highly rated. - djh101

I like this movie but it's the most overrated family movie EVERR period.

Before everyone goes nuts over nostalgia, just watch the movie again. See how more boring, mediocre, and over-dramatic it is. Then comment.

Okay, I'll be honest, I never watched it as a kid. The first time I did was during my mid-teen years, during a point where I was starting to get into media entertainment more deeper than my earlier ages. The Lion King unfortunately didn't impress me that much, compared to other animated films I found superior, especially Toy Story and Up.

To me, The Lion King is the most overrated animated film out there. Yes, it has standout moments and there are things I could genuinely praise, such as the score, the film's scope and Scar. The songs were a hit-and-miss for me ("Circle of Life" is epic and I could listen to that any day, and then I heavily despise "I Just Can't Wait to be King"). Also, Simba is a pretty bland protagonist, which is a shame, considering other characters, such as Scar, Timon and Pumbaa have more interesting personalities than him. - CrimsonShark

8 High School Musical

This movie sucks. Seriously. The other nine movies up here don't deserve to be called overrated while this abomination continues to exist. Putting Silence of the Lambs and American Beauty on the same list as High School Musical is basically comparing Zach Efron and Ashley Tisdale's acting to that of Keivn Spacey and Anthony Hopkins. Whoever made this list should be ashamed. - aman28

No one says high school musical is a great movie, people are always insulting it and claiming how it should never of been made. The same with twilight. I swear you don't know what overrated means. Its something that everyone rates high but really is terrible. Napoleon Dynamite is a good example. Twilight and high school musical are not.

"No one" LOTS of people say it's great. Just like Frozen. Kids and young teens all over love it. I like it, or used to. - iiKyodaiKickz

9 Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

Wow. Someone actually had the nerve to put this one here.

WHAT?!?!? This movie is not even close to being overrated!

Even though (for that time) the special and practical effects were magnificient this movie isn't about special effects or soldiers shooting straight. The scene between Vader and Luke is enough to shoot this movie up to greatness, if you know the story. That really was something special. - gaali121

10 The Matrix

Aww, come on now. What's so bad about Neo? You have a problem?! Why hate?

This movie is the most overrated in history, and I'm gonna tell you why. Blade did the bullet dodging, marble pillars with armed men behind them, trench coats and sunglasses one year before the matrix. The acting in the matrix sucks, the plot is idiotic, and it tries so hard to be smart but isn't. But, I will give it this, the special effects are decent. Not great, but they stand the test of time. The best part of the whole movie was when Keanu Reeves does Bruce Lee's signature nose flick. The reason I say Keanu Reeves is because it was unscripted. So, I've listed out the reasons I hate the Matrix. So you can't pass me off as unintelligent because I have my reasons.

Well the acting isn't that good since they have the same facial expression the whole time but imma give The Matrix 9/10 - AlphaQ

If visual effects makes a movie great, then Mars Needs Mom is a great movie.

This is actually an incredible movie - toptendudes

11 Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump is a great movie, but it is a little too overrated by many critics. Now, I do not hate the film, I myself like it, Robert Zemeckis is a good director (Back to the Future). It is a fun and cheerful drama with an entertaining performance by Tom Hanks. However, I was not happy with the fact that this movie won the Best Picture Oscar for 1994 over The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction. In all honesty, Pulp Fiction should've won the Best Picture Award because of many reasons. One, it has much better writing than Forrest Gump's sappy and sentimental script. Two, the non-linear, intertwining stories are marvels of cinema and revolutionized film-making. Three, an AMAZING ensemble cast: John Travolta, Samuel. L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames. Even the small roles played by Christopher Walken and Harvey Keitel are unforgettable; that clearly shows how superior PF was to FG. Fourth, direction, Zemickis's FG was very predictable and he did a little bit of a ...more

I'm a big fan of Sally Field ( in fact the only good thing in this movie ) but it's almost a pity that she did this stupid movie. And that cheap philosophy line about life is like a chocolate box really annoys me!

This is the most absolutely horrendously STUPID film I've ever seen in my life! The director has as much talent as a leech with a hot rock in its face. He can't tell whether anyone is following a script, which must have been written in the alien language of Zyxxyzzy before being poorly translated into a dialect that they didn't understand. The acting itself is all very basic and uninspired; not putting a thought into how serious or silly it sounded, making every second of this film more dull than Vertigo. Everything about this film lacks any sense of quality, and that's why I loathe it to infinity.

Worst movie ever!

13 The Dark Knight

The irony of this film is that it received so much hype for things that it wasn't: Dark, gritty, unpredictable, intellectual, realistic, ground breaking, philosophical, a work of art. What were the fans of this movie on when they saw this movie? People that claim this is a dark superhero movie had clearly never seen The Crow, Sin City, the Blade films, nor The Punisher. Due to those films alone, this film was not ground breaking. The film was not unpredictable nor intellectual, which was why the Jokster survived throughout the movie, getting away with much more than he should have. The many stupid moments made this film too comical to be gritty. Plus, the Jokster's pseudo-philosophy made the film come off as more stupid. I can't believe Heath Ledger won an Oscar for that role. What's even worse was that Ledger put too much energy into a villain that would of been killed quickly without plot armor. This overrated movie played a role in a actor's death. This movie is a work of ...more

I'm not gonna lie... this is a good comic book movie in my opinion. It's just good. Heath Ledger's performance is amazing, but don't think it's Oscar worthy (I just respect the fact that he put so much effort), the action sequences are a tad better than "Batman begins" and in many respects, it's a relatively fun movie to watch. However, there are some really big issues (in my opinion) that I think a lot of people ignore because of the film's hype and only. For example, Bruce Wayne is not as interesting as he was in "Batman begins". I just didn't feel that much about him and I feel that this is due to the fact that the writers focused much more on Joker's character than they should've had. And the same goes for everyone else in the movie. From Lucious Fox, to Rachel Daws, to Harvey Dent etc., all the characters felt kinda bland to me. Also, Maggie Gyllenhaal's performance as Rachel Daws was just terrible. She was just kind of a role model than an actual character and could've given a ...more

I find The Dark Knight to be an... Okay film. However, it's all the praise it gets that made me hate it. The big problem I have with it is how seriously it takes itself. They have a story about a man who fights crime dressed up as a BAT, yet they make it as if they're producing Shakespeare. Burton's Batman was dark, like Batman should be, but Burton acknowledged the surrealness of the story, and he made it so it was fun, enjoyable, and dark, just like a Batman movie should be. That's why Burton's Batman remains one of my favorite movies of all time. Another big problem I have with the film, aside from Bale's performance, is Heath Ledger. He was a partially enjoyable character, but he was NOT the Joker. He was an everyday criminal. The Joker is supposed to be both fun, creepy, insane, and hilarious. Ledger only got the insane part down, the rest he completely defenestrated. If I wanted a good Joker, I'd watch Mark Hammil, or Jack Nicholson. And, if I wanted to enjoy Batman, I'd watch ...more

For many others, like me, who think Tim Burton's Batman had too much caricature, Nolan's toning down was a huge sigh of relief. - gaali121

16 Brave

I don't get the hell why would such a crap show could win an Oscar for Best Animated Feature. It was so horrible, the story was a huge mess and the mother daughter relationship was nothing at sense. The characters don't even link to each other and the animation was horrible (seriously Pixar? ). Even the bear scene doesn't make any sense to that

I don't even get why would anyone like that show or it win an Oscar. The story was a huge mess and the animation is damm awful (seriously Pixar after The Incredibles? ) even Rise Of The Guardians and Wreck it Ralph is heck better in animation quality

The academy should go right up to Disney and take that Oscar back! This film sucked! Merida, who is supposed to be "brave," came out was whiny and annoying for me. She whines about being a princess, whines about getting married, whines about her mom choosing her fate(she's really not, she wants the best for you,) whines when she gets turned into a bear, etc. If you want a brave princess, go watch Mulan, who isn't whiny and selfish.

It just wasn’t Pixar, and only so much of it was great

17 The Avengers

Not let's be clear, overrated doesn't mean that something is bad yet everyone seems to enjoy it. It simply means that something is given more credit than it deserves. And let's face it, The Avengers is completely over-rated. We have been waiting for this for awhile, yet it gives off too much of an "America $%&# Yeah" sort of feel to it.

Lets be honest the movies on here are here simply because we hate it but are probably not THAT bad movies, well they are pretty bad but the ratio of hype to actual value isn't that different, this had so much hype, and ratio wise its pretty overrated because I think it doesn't have much actually good artistic value in it, just explosions, special effects taken form every other marvel movie already made and put together, at least they are good actors

This movie isn't bad but it's definitely not as good as people say. The story is literally bad guy (but a cool one) does something bad, the avengers assemble and catch the bad guy who obviously has a plan, then they fight against each other and bad guy escapes, attacks the city and they beat him. That's it. Maybe it does have some cool effects and actors are pretty good. But, really, what's so special about it. The plot is weak and there is no character development. I watched it multiple times and still can't see what's so good about it.

Biggest piece of trash I have ever seen. The movie is more overrated than Titanic. A childish CGI movie with no risks. Terrible plot, boring dialogue, cringy humour and boring actions.Loki sucked and Captain America is a clown.I can't imagine an adult thinking this is the best movie of all time. Only kids like this. Most overrated movie ever!

21 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

In my opinion, this film was mediocre at best. The acting was subpar, the action scenes were okay, but what really broke the camel's back was the character development, or lack thereof. I couldn't really care about these characters, because we know nothing about these characters. I feel like people only liked the film because it's a Star Wars film. Personally, I think it's overrated. - MasonOcker

Not only was it not as good as most say, it was worse than any Star Wars movie not called Phantom Menace. The movie came out at a time when everyone was crying racism over every little thing. Hollywood felt it was their job to attack what they felt was racism all over this country. So what does Rogue One do? Make all the bad guys in the movie white men, and make all the good guys in the movie a complete hodgepodge of different ethnicity and gender... just as long as it was no white men.

24 Zootopia

While this movie isn't terrible per say it unfortunately tends hammer the message down your throat, as a result it comes off as very preachy and a bit annoying. What also doesn't help when it come's to how overrated it is, is that there's a gay couple (look it up it's sadly been confirmed) and we all know how much people love campaigning for gay rights and $&@!. And how people lose their minds if someone says something negative about gays. Even though gay marriage is disgusting and wrong and gays are sub human. (they aren't even real people) these are just one of few reasons why it's overrated hopefully overtime more and more people will see it's glaring flaws because while it's not a terrible movie it could have been better.

25 Tangled

The characters are annoying at best and completely unlikable at worst. The entire plot is stupid - it has too many implausible actions and twists, the magic just happens to work in a forced, convenient way (this includes being a deus ex machina), and the whole plot could've been avoided if it weren't for the villain's contrived idiocy. The songs weren't great either, and saying that the good animation redeems the film is like saying that the nice graphics redeem Sonic 2006.

This is one of the best animated films ever. The characters, the songs and dare I say, the story, are all great. I do not understand how anyone can find anything in this to dislike. Inside out is a terrible animated movie.

Not overrated at all my favorite Disney movie ever its great any one who thinks the plot is stupid does not understand. A great plot is was a fantastic set up also Frozen's plot was hard to understand. - JustinDanger

26 Gravity

Don't believe the comments of people who say that the critics who found this film overrated, boring and bad in acting all were wrong! They were right ( for once ). This movie is boring. Sandra Bullock is very bad ( she is screaming all the time and it sounds like she has an orgasm instead of fear ) and the special " action " effects are so predictable that it gives no " viewers effect " at all in matter of being surprised.

I do not get the praise behind this film at all. The big issue with Gravity is that it felt like they spent most of the production into the CGI and special effects and that's it. While I do think George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are great actors, this is probably one of their worst performances I have seen from both actors. - SteamedSpaghet

No plot, humor, or character development (or characters for that matter) and critics loved it because of the effects? I agree with critics on almost every movie but I am truly baffled at the praise this movie is receiving.

I have to heavily disagree with moth critics on this one. Gravity is one of the most boring films I've ever seen, which is a real shame as I wanted to see what made this film so attention-grabbing.

Sandra Bullock honestly isn't that good; most of the film consists of her thumping around in space whilst mumbling nonsense and screaming for life throughout the majority of the film's run-time. George Clooney could have provided more depth, but nope, he's offed about halfway through anyway. I know these two are competent actors, and that disappoints me rather more. - CrimsonShark

27 Justin Bieber: Never Say Never

Don't people have to think a movie was good in the first place in order for it to be classified as "overrated"?

I can say never whatever I want! As for the movie, all I can say is, "NEVER create this movie about a boy that has a voice of a woman and dance around like a female latino dancer again"! Plus, don't get started Katy Perry either!

For a movie to be classified as overrated, it must have critical and audience acclaim. While critics didn't really mind this movie, but it also has an average rating of 1.6 on IMDB, and nearly all of the votes are from people who haven't even seen the movie. That is why it isn't even included in IMDB's Bottom 100, despite the fact that it could easily take the number one spot.

"The Fast and the Furious" movies are some of the most overrated films of all time. I really don't understand how these movies draw so much revenue when they're the same as any other generic, forgettable action movie. These movies don't have any plot, no character development, and don't give us any reason to care for the characters. I hope this franchise comes to an end soon. - rapaddict97

33 Requiem for a Dream

It starts off like a bad student film, doesn't know what to do with the middle and just explodes at the end. Technically the last 25 minutes were extremely well done but we needed the previous hour to engage with the character and we just didn't have any of the character ark that we needed. As a result how are we supposed to care about these people. Maybe you did but I didn't.

Best thing about this film was Clint Mansell's score.

It is well made but it shoves the moral down the viewers throat

It is sickening that this overrated pile of a series is treated like it's the best thing ever made when it isn't.

It wouldn't surprise me if much of the fandom of star wars and call of duty are the same. Both dumb franchises have war, a bunch of explosions, overrated weapons, overrated soldier characters, and they both get brought up too much in circumstances that have nothing to do with either stupid series. Both franchises are like cancer, which should also go away, but can't. Now that wouldn't mean that the fandom of both franchises is completely the same, since many call of duty fans mainly adore call of duty because it's very violent. Dumb costumes, over-used catchphrases, an overrated theme song, and those reasons I mentioned earlier is why star wars is the most overrated movie series ever. At least the makers of star wars doesn't release an entry ...more

Finding someone else who doesn't like Star Wars is one of the most difficult things I've ever tried, it's like half the Earth loves Star Wars, and I never understood why, it's really lame, the whole I am your father thing wasn't as cool to me as everyone claimed it is, they were like "oh my god that's one of the best movie twists ever! " But honestly it wasn't that cool to me, and this movie at times is REALLY boring, even the action wasn't that interesting, and all the space Battles weren't cool either mostly because the effects are REALLY dated, also why do all the fans think these movies are perfect? Literally everyone I talk to who says Star Wars is awesome says the original trilogy was completely flawless, did they just choose to ignore any problems the movies had? I just don't like Star Wars and maybe one day I'll finally meet someone who agrees with me

*The "I am your father" scene was in Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, not this one. Carry on. - MasonOcker

It's a good movie. But people call this flawless and the greatest movie of all time. For the record, not every movie is perfect. Frozen has its flaws (the villain? ), but it's still a great movie. This one is treated like God made it. But if Lucas didn't make this, then where would special effects be now? This is good, but not as good as everyone says. You have to understand that it's been almost forty years since this movie was released, and there are better movies out there. The Force Awakens was much cooler than this, although it felt the same as this one.

To say that half the Earth loves star wars would be giving the series more ridiculous credit. There are many people that like twilight, avatar, coca-cola, soccer, and american football. That don't mean at least half the world likes those things. Much of the world would of felt sick of hearing about twilight and avatar when those movies came out. If you wanna find someone that doesn't like star wars, go to your search engine, and then type star wars with the words ''sucks'' or ''is terrible'' or ''is stupid'' and you'll find people that hate it. The fans of star wars give way too many comparisons between star wars and other sci-fi movies. Its fans treat star wars like it started science fiction, even though star trek and 2001: A Space Odyssey came out a decade earlier. The story called 20,000 Leagues under the Sea came out several decades before any of those things. Forbidden Planet used major visual effects 2 decades before star wars. A bunch of things blowing up on screen was done on ...more

I never understood the hype. It really wasn't that great. It wasn't different from any other superhero movie. When it came out, it seemed like everyone WORSHIPPED this movie! I guess I'm not a fan of overrated hype...

Thank goodness I am not alone! I thought I was the only one who thought this film was kind of offbeat! I don't care about any dislikes. I have my own opinions! - BoltMarksman

No matter how much dislikes I got on this comment but I have said it before and saying this again this movie is a plain boring movie with so much overrated,and deadpool isn't even like that the movie represented - zxm

The most boring and overrated movie of this year.plain actions,hero saves heroine at the end,like 4 or 5 other movies and got 8.5 on IMDB - zxm

38 Scarface

To gaali121, the violence is not the reason why there are people that know this film is overrated. People can love Nip/Tuck and think that Scarface is overrated. People can love American Horror Story or even the Law and Order shows and think that Scarface is overrated. The main people that would think that Scarface is entertaining are either drug users or people that became criminals because of this overrated tripe. Those people are probably the main users of that dumb, over-used catchphrase, and it was probably the last phrase some of them used before they got blown away by either drug runners or cops. If you think that violence and a bunch of cursing is all a movie needs to be a masterpiece, then several movies made for the Syfy channel are wonderful works of art.

Well if people chose to do drugs or become criminals after watching this movie, then they're nothing but stupid. Movies like these do not glorify crime by any means. That is the biggest misconception people tend to have. - gaali121

This should be in the top 10 part of this list. Plus, this film's fanbase is among the worst.

It's a great movie. It's supposed to be entertaining. And entertain you, it does. Those who were not entertained by this movie, well, I guess you can't take in on-screen violence - gaali121

How can a movie be good if it has no character devellopement

This movie is honestly so similar to the hunger games that you could watch this movie instead to save time. Overrated garbage

Terrible crap - ikerevievs

THIS IS COMPLETE CRAP

41 Despicable Me

I agree with the other person get this off the list! I'm 18 years old girl and I really liked this movie. It is fun and entertaining and can be watched over and over again which is exactly what I do sometimes only I skip little parts of it but most of it I will watch again. Also I've been wanting to get a minion toy or a minion so that I can have it as an souvenir ( although it won't count as that if I get from where I live which is Canada which I know I can since I already saw many of that). - LucyLu18

I can't stand all the publicity this thing got. It's a decent movie, but after a while, it gets repetitive and predictable. I liked it the first time I watched it, but every time after, it got a little more stale. It was meant just to appeal to kids with those yellow things, and have a cheesy message.

It's a good movie! It's just the Minions that are really annoying. Seriously, you see them everywhere. Literally. Everywhere you look. The plots for the movies are good, but some of the jokes are irritating. (The bathroom jokes mostly)

I'm in it for the memes (not the 'it's so fluffy I'm gonna die' memes because those are annoying) - wheelers-

42 Kill Bill - Volume One

The fights (with the exception of the one at the beginning) are pretty lackluster and for a movie that gets endless amounts of praise for it's originality, it doesn't seem very original; especially when one considers the fact that it's made up almost entirely of other movies. This would be fine had it done the other movies justice, but.. Well, lets just say I'm calling it overrated for a reason.

Quentin Tarantino likes to make movies about girls who kill people in impossible ways. It's very genius, if you don't actually think about it.

I am a pretty big Tarantino fan but I really don't see the love for wither of the Kill Bill movies. They're not fun, I find them off-putting and completely lacking in the intelligent, razor-sharp dialogue of films like Pulp Fiction or Dogs. Dunno, guys. Not too much of fan of these ones.

A woman with a sword? Boring!

43 Django Unchained

This movie is incredible. This movie has everything you really want for just good old fashion entertainment. Because when you think about the plot, it's very simple but genius.

Like every Tarantino movie, a lack of originality. It's just a copy of the many Italian westerns made in the sixties.

This movie isn't as good as everyone claims it to be

Quite honestly, any movie by Tarintino should be on this list! He's an awful director with "NO" imagination or vision. Like Oliver Stone with Platoon, he made it on the map early with Resivoir Dogs... Ever since then he has directed nothing but garbage. You can throw Spike Lee in this catagory also. Lee, Stone, Tarintino all all a collection of talentless idiots!

44 Suicide Squad

The people defending the movie says stupid although they never met then and it's just a movie and also it's a bunch of people who hate the movie so if someone says everyone says the movie sucks then you are stupid is very stupid although there could be someone who is stupid but everyone...WHY. It's like saying that the people who like porn are stupid although I like to say that's true but no it's like a professor who is very smart and wise but watches porn and also goes to people saying my little pony fans are annoying is also stupid if you say a all the fans of any kind of thing are stupid or even smart then you have to be embarrassed with your self.

I don't know how this can be considered overrated considered it's been butchered by audiences and critics alike

I don't get why there used to be such a Suicide Squad hype, I found it simply boring and really nothing special at all - Organ

45 American Beauty

I mean, come on, a guy who's filming plastic bags in the wind and we're supposed to say " Wow, what a great movie " (? ).

You singled out the plastic bag in the whole movie. And I'm supposed to say "Wow, what a great analysis " (? ). - gaali121

Worst movie ever to win the Best Picture Oscar. there are not many movies out there that infuriate me as much as this one. Not a single character worth caring about, and a stupid script, bad acting, and boring as hell. No sane, intelligent human being would think this was a good film.

That would be "Forrest Gump" you're talking about, man. Because "American Beauty" is a great piece of cinema. - gaali121

Excellent movie. It does not take itself seriously. People fail to realize that. Has to be watched in a certain frame of mind. - gaali121

Great film. Before I saw it, I hated it due to it beating The Matrix for Best Picture. After I saw the movie, I was so wrong. This movie is terrific. - BeatlesFan1964

46 Jurassic World

This movie is mostly overhyped because of the series that it's part of. There are dinosaur movies on the syfy channel that are marvelous compared to this junk of a movie. If this film wasn't part of the jurassic park series, nor had the word JURASSIC in its title, most of the fans of this stupid movie wouldn't care for it.

What? I'm confused... What is going on... what. It's not near bad. Not amazing though

The movie is okay

I'm sorry, but I didn't like this. Found it very clichéd. Please don't hurt me. - Swellow

Its very annoying how they highlight poverty in India as if it does not exist in the rest of the world. Oh and boo hoo poor so called minority being bullied by the big bad majority.

I don't know a more undeserving Academy Award winner. Just terrible, how someone can like this is beyond me.

OK, it wasn't the worst ever but it won too many Oscars. American Academy Awards became real FLOP - Alexandr

It got way too many awards. Bs story. It could have been a Bollywood movie.

49 The Hangover

Oh good god. Why do people consider this one of the greatest comedies ever made? Yeah, the sequels suck, but why does THIS movie get respect. The plot is like every other movie like this, the characters are not memorable and it's NOT FUNNY!

Hangover 1 is NOT Over-rated. Stop judging it based on the sequels

It is seriously unfunny for a comedy movie.

This was actually a masterpiece that needs an Oscar as well as my favorite movie. - AlphaQ

50 The Secret Life of Pets

Toy story with pets, and most of the actual funny parts in the trailer. But of course people loved it because cute animals. It's no way horrible (decent animation/voice acting) but seriously Illumination Animation made this movie for the sole purpose of profit, not creativity. But it's not the most overrated of all time, I just thought it should be higher - Phillip873

Too many toys, played the trailer too much in the Theater, bad acting, illumination makes this movie like a god, rips off toy story 3 times, stupid minion Easter eggs, horrible fanbase, do I have to say more, this movie is trash!

This is a toy story ripoff coming from the studio who made minions and sing...And it's lower than SHREK - Himalayansalt

I think it's okay.
