Most Overrated Movies

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

The Top Ten

1 Avatar Avatar Product Image

I get why this movie is high on this list, but this movie is not nearly as overrated today as it was when it first came out. Unlike many overrated movies that should be higher on this list than Avatar(The Dark Knight, Joker, Forrest Gump, Django Unchained, any Avengers film, any Star Wars film), Avatar's hype was not because of any overrated characters. Does anyone think that Jake Sully, Neytiri, or Grace are among the greatest characters ever? The CGI was the only reason Avatar got so overrated. The CGI could of made any film huge, regardless of how bad the plot is. Howard the Duck and Battlefield Earth would of been very huge if they had Avatar level CGI before Avatar. Avatar was the most overrated film 10 years ago, but the hype that surrounded Avatar had already died down. It's probably because nowadays, even terrible movies can have major CGI.

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.

I my goodness I hate all of you. This is one of the GREATEST SCI FI MOVIES OF ALL TIME! It has romance, drama, war and Sigourny Weaver! What more could I want from a movie? (Besides Harrison Ford. Hey-ho we all make mistakes)

Avatar is one of the most overrated movies ever with an unoriginal plot and really annoying and boring characters. Critics only really praised the film because the impressive visuals that overshadowed their judgement of the rest of the movie. The message the film sends is so clichéd and it was brought up by something really stupid that the humans did to Earth so that they can just attack other innocent beings throughout the galaxy to get what they want. The film also relies heavily on CGI making the Na'vi not look so very good in appearance and the action scenes were not very good, especially the battle at the end which was resolved poorly.

2 Titanic Titanic Product Image

I liked this movie but aside from the two main characters, all of them are just hateable. There's this unnecessary villain who framed Jack for robbery and trapped him in the titanic which results them (Jack and Rose) to get trapped in the Titanic. Also, wanna know who's the most hateable characters in the movie? The entire crew of the movie! These bastards are the reason why half of the people had to die. First off, they let the women and children go and then trap some people on the hallways. We all understand that people die during the faithful day of the titanic sank. But there should be a better explanation on why people died, not because the crew refused to pick up the people who are trapped in the water at first sight. This isn't a bad movie and it did hit me in an emotional level, but it's the unnecessary sub-plot involving a villain that ruined this movie from unleashing its full potential.

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.

Ugh, there's no such thing as Jack in Titanic. I have already stated that I hate DiCaprio because of this film and I really hate this piece of crap film. James could've stick ONLY to Sci-Fi films, not Love Stories like this garbage! Titenic (Lol. I know, it's "Titanic") is supposed to be a biography of a ship that was supposed to travel from Europe to America (correct me if I'm wrong) but got sunk by an iceberg, not a "Love Story" about an unknown young man who came out of nowhere and a woman who they both met and "fell in love with each other".

Or wait... Maybe Jack came from somewhere... Maybe he came from the future of 2020 A.D. where Judgment Day was still occurring... Maybe he's a new Terminator? Who knows? Perhaps... Terminator: Titanic?!

Oh God!

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.

3 Frozen Frozen Product Image

It's the most overrated Disney movie ever. Besides the animation (which is amazing like always) this movie is nothing special. Everybody loves this movie and talks about it. Why? I don't know because Elsa's ice powers is cool. Actually many people think that it's overrated too, but I think that it's 5 year old kids who love this movie so much. These kids will never know Beauty and the Beast or Aladdin (or The Emperor's New Groove which I sooo underrated) Their favorite character will be Elsa (maybe already is) and they will sing L et It Go seeing Elsa as their role model. But if you think about it Elsa is not a great character at all. She turns her back to Anna and runs away and in the end she ends up in prison and runs away from there to. Why? Because she's a bad role model who doesn't have any personality but just her COOL ICE POWERS. You may say that she has suffered a lot but Anna did to and unlike Elsa she had no idea what was happening. She was all alone, she had no one. They ...more

Frozen is very overrated, especially because of that song Let it Go, but Frozen should not be that high on this list. As overrated as Frozen is, at least nostalgia had nothing to do with the hype that surrounded Frozen. I can't say that about the several films on this list that should be much higher on this list.

It’s a decent movie for sure. Not as good as some other Disney movies, but still an enjoyable film to watch. However, from the way people talked about it you would think that the gods of every religion joined together, descended to Disney’s HQ and gifted this movie to them for the good of all mankind.

IT IS A GREAT MOVIE... but it caused over a whole year of constant suffering, hearing let it go and do you want a build a snowman EVERYWHERE. I don't think this movie should be forgotten and it should be a remember Disney movie, but damn, people act like it's the best movie ever. The songs are really good, but that's what people seem to go so crazy about. The songs should add to the movie, but not define it entirely. I just think the hyper love people have for this movie needs to be taken down a notch. Something a lot of people probably don't notice that they should which makes the movie even better is that there are a lot of pretty good metaphors.

4 Black Panther Black Panther Product Image

There are many great superhero movies that deserve an Oscar way more than black panther. Not to be racist, but to me it was just another good marvel origin story. It's definitely a good movie, perhaps I could even consider it a great movie but in comparison to other MCU flicks like Captain America: The Winter Soldier or infinity war and endgame or even Far From Home(amazing spider-man indeed), this movie falls short.

I loved Black Panther and especially the social themes in it. I thought the acting was solid, the culture it showed was beautiful, and the villain is better than most Marvel movies.

That being said, a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes? Really? I loved what the movie was and what it stood for, but this is a Marvel movie. It was a huge stride in the right direction for representation, but outside of its social implications, it's not Oscar-worthy. It's simply a far-above-average Marvel movie

People were called racist for not liking this movie. If most people either hate a movie or think that it's overrated, the main characters being black won't be the reason. If someone wasn't going to like a movie because of the ethnicity of the main characters, then they wouldn't watch the movie at all. Also, wouldn't it be a different form of racism to praise a movie because the main characters are black? That would be overrating the film.

People went nuts when this movie dropped below 100% on Rotten Tomatoes BEFORE THE MOVIE WAS EVEN RELEASED. All because "muh black cast." That's literally the only reason this movie was so hyped. Nobody outside of black racists who don't even watch comic book movies actually thinks it's the best Marvel movie. It wasn't even the best of the year it was released.

5 La La Land La La Land Product Image

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.

The plot of this film moves to slow to hold any attention. It gets to the point of ok guys just get to the sex already. It's like waiting for the sex scene that never comes. I'm assuming it was to boring to watch till the end. Thank goodness it didn't win the oscar.

I love musicals but was so disappointed by this movie, especially after all the hype it received

6 The Hunger Games The Hunger Games Product Image

I read the book before watching the movie and I can say I was very disappointed. The characters were bland and uninteresting, Jennifer Lawrence, although she is a brilliant actress, was like a statue in this movie, barely showing emotion and making a character who is very likeable in the books, a bland and boring character that could've been killed off and I wouldn't have cared. The way the movie went about explaining certain aspects could've been done a lot better (e.g. show don't tell) the characters were uninteresting robots that I didn't care at all for. The sequels are a lot better however, I feel like Francis Lawrence did a much better job.

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.

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.

No action in the first half, seldom action in the second half (like 30 seconds of action every dozen minutes or so), and the action wasn't even good. The fighting was mild, the camera was too shaky, and most of the fighting was off-screen. If you're going to make a movie about teens killing each other, maybe you can have you can have for than five minutes on-screen of teens killing each other.

7 The Lion King The Lion King Product Image

The film as a whole was pretty alright, I'd say, at parts a bit too goofy for my taste, but that's opinion.
Smaller problems would be that it seemed pretty weird to me how Simba would sing a fun song about how he wants his dad to die. Also I couldn't really buy the whole "Scar is a bad ruler" thing because the movie made it look like there just happened to be a drought and people blamed it on him.
What really bothers me that I can't comprehend what it wants to tell me.
Be nice to everyone except hyienas because yes?
Your birth determines who you'll be in life and there's no way of having an impact on your destiny on your own?
If you're stronger than others you can take everything you want and they'll just have to live with it?
I don't get it. Who thought of this? The movie basically promotes fascism. If that were intentional it would be an ethical problem, but I'll assume it wasn't, this way it's bad writing.

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.

The Lion King is undoubtedly a great animation, but I do think it's overrated compared to some other Disney animations which are less revered than this one, but just as good.

First and foremost, this movie is heavily influenced by Bambi, yet Bambi is nowhere near as acclaimed as this movie. I just watched Bambi(1942) for the fist time last week, and I was amazed by how much influence that movie had on the Lion King, specially the ending, but I don't see people citing Bambi as the greatest Disney animation of all time, even though it's just as good as The Lion King.

Also, if we compare The Lion King to some other Disney animations like Snow White, Pinocchio and Aladdin, it could be argued that those movies are just as good, if not better than The Lion King.

Don't get me wrong, I love The Lion King, but I just think it gets way too much praise, while some other Disney movies are very underrated compared to this one. I mean, TLK has a 8.5/10 rating on IMDB, while ...more

1. It copied "Hamlet" and "Kimba the White Lion". / 2. When Simba sang 'I just can't wait to be king' it was like he didn't care about his father Mufasa anymore. / I respect others' opinions though. I would rate it 4 and a half/10.

8 Twilight Twilight Product Image

It deserves to be number 1 for an overrated movies or rather a worthless, and trash movies of all time. It's basically a teenage girl having a problem on her suitors on who she will pick plus they changed the view of what the vampires and werewolves really are. In my childhood I usually feared this kind of creatures because they are very scary and they are portrayed as a ferocious monsters until thisty movie showed up and it ruin everything. Kudos Stephanie Meyer for adding a worthless novel this century has.

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

Why are girls obsessed with movies about these dudes that they think are attractive fall in love with some girl? Like, wouldn't that make them angrier? Cause I think all the girls who watch these movies would much rather want to marry the dudes in these movies themselves instead of watching some random chick marry them

To all teen girls out there! If u breakup with your boyfriend, start thinking of committing suicide or try hooking up with the most idiotic, self-absorbed boy around. This is the message of twilight. I am losing my faith in the new generation with these things being taught to kids today

9 Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope Product Image

To RogerMcBaloney, it is dumb to assume that if someone thinks Star Wars is overrated, he doesn't like science fiction. A person can say that Star Wars is overrated and be a fan of Star Trek, E.T., or Crash Bandicoot, which are all Sci-Fi stories. Star Wars is not that good, and many of its fans exaggerate its overall impact. It didn't jump start movie franchises. 007 did. For the many Star Wars fans to think that the series started the 'chosen one' kind of character, the dark looking villain with the villainous accent, old characters with great intelligence and wisdom, or a major plot twist, those fans unintentionally admitted that they never seen Dracula, the Captain Nemo films, nor seen nor read any story from Greek Mythology. Did Star Wars push the boundaries of special effects? Yes, but so did Forbidden Planet. The main reason Star Wars received so much attention is the same reason Independence Day and Armageddon did. A bunch of stuff blows up. Star Wars wasn't even the first ...more

It is sickening that this overrated pile of a series is treated like it's the best thing ever made when it isn't. I think the only franchise that had received even more stupid, ridiculous hype is that stupid, overrated video series, call of duty. 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

I don't see how you could compare Star Wars, a movie, and Call Of Duty, a video game. The only thing that I agree with you about is that Call Of Duty is overrated, at least most of the games in the franchise. Now, I get that you might not like Science-Fiction, but seriously you need to chill. I bet you never even saw any of the Star Wars movies. Bet you only hate on things because you think it makes you cool. None of the reasons you gave have any credibility whatsoever.

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.

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.

10 The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Product Image

Anyone who thinks that Twilight is more overrated than this should (Insert Disturbing Content Here) That movie is actually underrated compared to this in fact Twilight is underrated because it is hated so much. Heath's performance is fine but it isn't Joker like, Jack Nicholson made a better Joker. Christian Bale's growls are unbearable. The movie has a dull atmosphere and takes itself too seriously. Burton's Batman was dark but it was fun. This is just kinda boring. The Dark Knight is a fine film but best superhero movie ever, that is just exaggerated. The best superhero movie is and always be The Avengers.

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 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

The main problem with this list is that all the people who like these movies are gonna dislike all the negative comments about the movie, why? Can you just let people have their opinion instead of just trying to convince them to like the movie, cause I hate this movie but I haven't met someone who agrees with me, they all say this movie is awesome and it really gets on my nerves, people even say it's better then the avengers, HOW IS IT BETTER THAN THE AVENGERS? And what's really stupid is that Avengers is higher up on this list but in reality The Dark Knight is WAY more overrated

We're aloud to have our own opinions too, and I'm aloud to dislike your comment. You didn't even give good reasons, get lost.

The Contenders

11 Get Out Get Out Product Image

Lmao this is not overrated. Most horror movies, even those that have been rated well, have been very cliche and cringy. This is one of the most incredible suspense/horror films, created by one of the most genius directors, Jordan Peele. There were so many key details and it's fun to go watch videos on YouTube explaining hidden meanings...not overrated at all.

This movie has scenes that don't make any sense and are there because Peele wanted to show the weirdness. But instead it's just confusing.

Pretty good, but not the best horror movie

Haven't seen it

12 Forrest Gump Forrest Gump Product Image

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.

I love this movie. But when you have this win Best Picture over Pulp Fiction, that's when I cross the line. While I love Forrest Gump more than Quentin Tarantino's magnum opus, Pulp Fiction is clearly the much better film. But nonetheless, I think this film gets enough praise and I still love it to this day.

Thank you! Someone else has some sense after all. the basic gist of the plot is Gomer Pyle as a melodrama, which has GOT to be the single stupidest story premise I've ever heard in my life!
(honestly, what was the Academy smoking when they declared Best Picture Of The Year what would turn out to be the worst picture of the DECADE? )

I don't know which movie is the worst... Forrest Gump, Steel Magnolias or Field of Dreams... but I think I'll go with Forrest Gump which is full of sentimental drivel.

13 The Wizard of Oz The Wizard of Oz Product Image

This movie is classic! Shame on whoever put it here! And while the special effects aren't perfect when viewed today, they look great for a 77-year-old movie!

Watch this movie, play " Pipers at the gate of dawn " by Pink Floyd and smoke a certain substance and you will be the happiest person.

I love this movie! It was funny, sad, and scary at the same time. But we are all entitled to our own opinion.

Movies weren't as good as today people we have heaps of technology! Technology is all u people do now

14 How to Train Your Dragon How to Train Your Dragon Product Image


People like this movie because it has fantastic animation, likable characters, A good message, and, let's face it, Toothless is adorable.

Let's face it, the sequel is ripping off the first. They make you like only toothless, that's why all the other dragons are ugly and fat.

This movie is just okay but it is not the best movie I have ever seen nor the worst.

15 Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back Product Image

Star Wars is the most overrated media franchise of all time (This includes Video Games, T.V. Shows, Animation and Films), and this coming from a long-time fan. Honestly, I think there's better Space-Based franchises and better sequels than Episode V. Not saying this is bad at all, in fact this is better than A New Hope, but I honestly don't think its as grand as so many people make it out to be.

Furthermore, the Star Wars franchise has staggered itself several times after the Original Trilogy. While I personally like the Prequels, I know they're flawed in many ways. The Sequel Trilogy is honestly mediocre. And in a very unpopular opinion, I prefer the tie-in materials, mostly from the Expanded Universe over any of the films.

The old Star Wars movies are terrible and boring. Terrible acting, cheesy crap like soldiers that can't shoot despite having an advance armor which doesn't protect them from anything. Bad choreography and terrible use of puppets. Terrible cheesy deaths for characters and lame character names.

The worst movie ever! I can't believe I wasted my time watching this series - the plot isn't even fit enough! Have you guys even tried watching a Kid's anime? trust me you'll be doing yourself a favor by not watching this move ever! MOST OVERRATED MOVIE/SERIES EVER!

Yep, I'll just call this movie the worst movie ever made without any reason because I clearly have heard of The Room or any so bad it's good movies but I like to delude myself.

Many movies were inspired by Star Wars. Many set the bar high. Star Wars does not reach those heights. And Empire Strikes Back trades off the childish appeal of the original to be dull. Yet so many are drooling over it!

16 The Matrix The Matrix Product Image

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

The only thing going for this movie is the CGI effects that were ahead of it's time. Other than that: the acting is crap, the story is boring, it's been parodied and copied so many times it ruins it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, there's a huge lack of character development, and the monotony from the aforementioned acting is taken straight out of an M. Night Shyamalan movie.

I love this movie for its esthetics only. Worth a 10 stars just for them. The look of the film. The clothes. The original and outstanding action scenes. The genius of the visual effects. This movie was groundbreaking, that's why it copied so many time but always to a lesser degree than the original. I still gave no idea what it's about but the visual make it a classic.

When this movie came out it was concidered as a top film. I think that it is still a great movie. The problem is that it was such a succes and that it made a box-office beyond their expectations ( so, a lot of money ) that they decided to make a second and a third one with more special effects that weren't that good. The first Matrix movie is great, the second and the third one not that good and really overrated.

17 The Blair Witch Project The Blair Witch Project Product Image

I only see the horror in the ending. The found-footage genre has to go. Yes, films like REC are good found-footage horror, but this is just bland. The end could do with some red eyes and a demonic smile in the background, then a jumpscare and then a static with screams in the background. May be a little cliche, but I find it ok.

SO STUPID! Found footage type of movies are the most annoying things ever! They try to make it realistic when actually it is just the most stressful and hardest thing to watch. This movie is the worst

Nothing happens u a girl crying, and then u see bump her head at the end and u see some sticks shapes as people. 2nd ones better

The atmosphere was okay, but everything else just screams "college project".

18 Gravity Gravity Product Image

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.

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.

Not only do I think this movie is overrated, but it's also one of my least favorite movies of all time. Almost nothing happened. There was no character development, innovation, emotion or humor. Its visuals were good but not enough to save it.

Watching Gravity is the equivalent of watching fireworks. It's cool, but ultimately I don't want to watch two hours worth of it.

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.

19 Jurassic World Jurassic World Product Image

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.

This film should be called Jurassic Garbage. Walking with Dinosaurs 3D is better than this overrated piece of Jurassic Garbage. Many of the fans of this movie must be on dope.

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

Lmao, Jurassic World overrated? What retard put this on here

20 Gladiator Gladiator Product Image

The lighting in this movie is unbearable and it makes everything look fake. Did they render Rome in microsoft paint? Generally the movie just feels incomplete and lackluster.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Russell shouldn't play victims. He is better off playing villains and leaders. Give me Master and Commander any day.

Really overrated, seen better movies about Romans, and less predictable ones too

What is this doing here?

21 High School Musical High School Musical Product Image

The movie’s just okay, not the best musical, sort of overrated, and the worst thing is that it ripped off my favourite movie ever, Grease.

All the characters are two-dimensional copies of every teen movie archetype ever. The characters' only personality is their stereotype. Plus, the plot is as unoriginal as every stereotypical white girl. The fan base needs to grow up and watch better written films rather than obsessing over how "hot" Zac Efron is. Honestly, he's one of the gayest characters in this movie only second to that blonde guy who wears pink and berets.

The movie sucked. It surrounds a bunch of dumb ass teenagers waiting for a callback for a school musical. That's it. But for some reason, my generation thinks it's the best thing to ever be made. Say one bad thing against it and you'll get crucified. This movie was probably one of the worst movies I've ever seen in my entire life and I don't understand how it's even taken seriously and not seen as a joke.

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.

22 Requiem for a Dream Requiem for a Dream Product Image

The most overrated drug-movie of all time. It's an ok film but it's so exagerated in every aspect of drug - taking. A example is the mother who takes dietpills of the amphetaminetype and goes bananas. It's like she is overdosing of methamphetamine.
And even the latter don't give such effects like she's showing in the clinic. A dopamine antagonist and some benzodiazepines would immediately stop the exagerated effects that are shown in this movie. The heroin effects are also way over the top. Can't they seek help in a methadon program? Or get some valiums to stop the withdrawn for a moment? Even alcohol works sometimes at this moments. My point is that everything in this movie is exagerated and not very realistic. It's just a moral seeking movie and too overrated to be called a top-movie that treats about drugs.

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.

Oh thank you, I am not alone in this. I thought this movie was terribly overrated. Wouldn't even say it was a good movie.

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

23 Brave Brave Product Image

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.

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

Since this movie came out I have been complaining about its lack of luster. First of all, the title is completely misleading. What exactly makes Merida "brave"? I must have missed it when I was forced to watch her be a complete selfish brat for the entire movie.

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

24 Halloween (1978) Halloween (1978) Product Image

Not the best horror movie, it's not scary, the side characters aren't interesting, and the kills are unrealistic and fast.

25 A Clockwork Orange A Clockwork Orange Product Image

One of the best movies ever made about how the society use it's power in a hypocrit way. How justice is injustice when politics and the power establishment tries to stay in power even against senseless criminality, sex, drugs and " rock and roll ". Many people didn't understood the message of this movie, just thinking that it was a movie just to show free violence.

Total trash. This is just exploitation cinema at its worst. A weak plot, cheap visuals and poor acting. Total garbage.

So there's social commentary about the government's involvement, yet that only comes in at the last half.

I like this movie, but seeing it everywhere on "top 10 movie of all time" lists frustrates me...
