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 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.

Good, but I have too admit it is pretty bland. - Jessicarabbit

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.

It is pretty good, but come on guys. - Jessicarabbit

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

You couldn't even tell what was going on during the cornucopia scene because the camera was out 99% of the time.

5 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!

6 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

7 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

Everyone hates this movie - ParkerFang

9 The Matrix

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

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

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

Maybe it was over hyped for me but I really didn't enjoy it much.

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.

It's Bambi with Fart Jokes and Flaming homo bad guys
It's a pseudo coming of age story- let's be real Simba doesn't really grow as a person like other mains have in Disney movies (Pinocchio, Beauty and the Beast (Beast)): He just found out he was lied to.
Scar as the "child who hasn't grown up arc" is interesting admittedly but it comes from nothing, he's a dark, Maleficent like Jackass and then all of a sudden he's all silly. And don't tell me he's the embodiement of lacking responsibility, because again, that comes out of nowhere. There was no indication that he would have been unfit for a king until he became won. Before that he was just unlucky. I just don't buy it.
Simba is a tool and boring as hell, all his dialoge is 90's one-liners "And I've got the bump to prove it"
But the worst of all is it's pretentiousness. It's not a coming of age story, it's a revenge fantasy. Take away the royal responsibilities and it's about showing up to you're high school reunion, ...more

11 2001: A Space Odyssey

Let's face it. This movie is amazing. Don't forget that this film came out in 1968 ( shooting began in 1967 ). We didn't land on the moon yet! No CGI to recreate space is also one of the main reasons to concider this movie a masterpiece. Most people talk about the story and his strange ending. What's not to understand? It shows astronauts on a mission where a computer is taking over. The ending shows the meaningless of humans in a infinite space, that humans are still ignorant as it was in the beginning ( also the beginning of the movie when cavemen discover something they don't understand ). This is a classic for a good reason and certainly not overrated!

Congratulations to Stanley Kubrick for making a movie that helps people fall asleep such as myself. He should have named it 2001: A Snore Odyssey.

The best movie opening sequence transition of all time by leaps and bounds. The best. The use of classical themes, the visuality of outer space is unparalleled to this day. No blue or green screens no computers! Star Wars visuals are a joke compared to this movie 9 years later. If the moon landing was faked (it wasn't ) they got the right guy to do it.

12 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.

This movie was alright, hardly any singing and not a stupid princess marries prince story like every other Disney movie. But not oscar-worthy.

I can't believe that they nominated Jesse Eisenberg at the Oscars for this movie. This actor is so annoying to hear ( Always speaking too fast like he's on meth in every movie he does ).

16 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

17 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.

18 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.

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.

Yeah, I watched it in 3D. And it was the most boring movie I ever watched in the theaters. There was no plot and critics just sucked up to the wasted talent of two admittedly great actors (more Clooney than Bullock, though, and he was only in for less than half the movie).

Superbly boring. One of the most sleep-inducing movies ever made. - gaali121

20 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.

21 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

23 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"?

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.

24 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.

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

This is a MASTERPIECE! AFI has this ranked #2 to only Citizen Kane. It is written and directed like an Italian opera. This is "the" best thing to come out of Hollywood in the last 40 years. Even if you don't like it, you have to appreciate what great movie it is. Godfather should be nowhere near this list. Anyone who cannot appreciate this movie knows nothing about films. Sorry if Fast & Furious 6 is your limits of taste.

I agree here. This movie just help influence the way criminal thug life would be redefined. It was a very good film but not spectacular. I think that Angels With Dirty Faces was better because it did not glorify gangster life. It showed how doing the wrong things had consequences. You do not find that here with the Godfather.

Too overrated, I can't stand it. I wonder how really this film can appeal to so may people when it deals just with mafia and gangsters. Is mafia and gangsters the essence of cinema? I think that there was and still is too much propaganda for The Godfather. It's certainly not a masterpiece! What's going on with people's minds?

30 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.

32 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!

33 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.

Gosh, people. Yes this film was overrated, but it wasn't bad. - Drawbox

37 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 thought it was okay, but Kevin Hart's character was hilarious! - Elijah_Cook

38 The Fast and the Furious

"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

So overrated. Period. Throw anything with cars and boys will love it to death.

Maybe ok for kids but all those so Obvious CGI effects made this film unreal. Can't believe that they made so many follow-ups for such an overrated movie.

39 The Smurfs

It can't be overrated if no-one thought it was good in the first place

It's not really overrated because people hate the live action versions. The only smurfs movie I hate is the second one.

They made a movie about this?

How is this overrated? It's garbage.

40 Despicable Me 2

Overrated, Annoying the hype is everywhere! From curtains, to clothing, to stuffed animals, IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE.

I'm 18 years old girl and I really like this movie. I don't think it is overrated at all. This movie can be watched over and over again which is that what I do with this one and the first one only skipping little parts of it but watch most of it again. In fact I've been wanting to get minion or minion thing for a long time now and I will get it soon since where I live which is Canada has these things and since my birthday is coming up in 2 and a half week I can ask my parents to get them to me as part of a gift basket present. Having said that really liked the movie and is not overrated at all. - LucyLu18

Honestly it wasn't that good, but I would watch this ANY day over "minions" - Phillip873

Off The list Now! Its Great!

Despicable me 1 was tolarable, but this one, adding almost no important storyline to the franchise, coming before the even worse " Minions" movie, was just so much to take. - alimarashian

41 Les Miserables (2012)

This should have stayed a book. But instead we got big name actors singing like animals getting skinned alive - ArpstaAmy333

43 Iron Man 3

I didn't find the film really awesome as how everyone said. I will give it 6/10.

Slightly better than Iron Man 2. But still the movie is bad.

Hey this movie was more overrated than The Avengers.

The climax was like someone set fire to a bee farm. - gaali121

44 The Wizard of Oz

This is a classic! As I said with Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, this movie is FAR from being overrated. This movie is even arguably better than The Godfather.

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

45 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 was made for it's time.

If you watch the anime "Perfect Blue" first, you'll see where Aronofsky gets his shots and ideas from. - gaali121

46 E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial

The game is even worse than the movie!

Really forgettable. First time seeing it I found it very hard to believe it was "The film that moved America" because it was so boring. I hardly even remember what happens and maybe that is for the best. How can something so boring be one of the most critically acclaimed movies of its time?

I watched the 1st part. I really didn't pay attention to the 2nd part - michaelthecritic

Another superbly overrated movie. Still cannot get the "deep meaning" or "emotions" in this one.
Spielberg's a great director, but he definitely knew how to cash in. - gaali121

47 Fight Club

Clearly those who dislike this movie are too stupid to understand it. It's a masterpiece and should be commemorated for being amazing.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who thought this movie was stupid, just had a cool name

Too much violence for nothing. Pure sensationalism. What a bore!

It's a great mind twisting movie,but movies like shutter island,memento,the prestige should get same rating as this movie cause they are more mind twisting than this movie,I think they are better than this movie - zxm

49 Jurassic World

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 clich├ęd. Please don't hurt me. - Swellow

50 Citizen Kane

I can't believe that this movie is still concidered as the greatest movie of all time. I love the work of Orson Welles but this movie is definitively not his best. By far are his movies like for instance " A touch of evil ", " The lady from Shangai " way much better. The latter two movies are even better in camera work and techniques, not to mention the story and the script. Why " Citizen Kane " is so overrated is really beyond me 'cause if you watch all the work that Orson Welles has done then this one is not that great. It's just a good movie that you will watch once or twice, but that's about it. It's certainly not his best and even some non-Orson Welles at that time were better. Too overrated for sure.

How the hell is this not number 1? So many people consider this to be the best movie of all time, and it has aged very poorly. What was once revolutionary is now just a movie with basic film techniques, terrible acting (except from Orson Welles), and a plot that is downright BORING.

How anybody compares this to the Godfather is beyond any form of reason.

Here's the thing about this movie. It's a great movie and I still consider Orson Welles to be brilliant. However, this movie was released in 1941. Time has passed and things have changed. Better movies have come out. People are still saying this is the best movie of all time, but it's not. It's great, but not the greatest.

Message to one and all who think this is overrated:
Citizen Kane came out 1941. I feel it to be still better than almost all (if not all) the movies released in 2016 and 17. The camera work is excellent. Minimalist, but great. The dialogue and screenplay are excellent. Ever seen that time lapse banter between Kane and his wife during breakfast? That's what I'm talking about. That still seems original, to this day. The character development of Kane, his stubborn self slowly coming out with age, and the payoff at the end... all this originality, at a time like that, is thoroughly deserving of praise to be called the greatest of all time (especially considering the time period). - gaali121
