The Top Ten
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
It's FULL of plot holes and the troll thing really does feel rushed and that it was added to the film at the last moment. definitely overrated in my opinion.V 102 Comments
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.
Twilight is a bad movie, worse than this movie, but there is a ratio to the amount of fame it gets to how good it really is. In ratio wise, this movie got a lot more fame than twilight for being a bad movie while twilight didn't get as much fame for being a worse movie but the amount of fame it got for how bad it was less extreme than the fame and value of this movie, so there.
I know why people cry when they watch it. It's the saddest movie ever because people realized they wasted their cash on useless garbage like this.
Here's the story in barely 20 words.

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.
Even the guy who designed the aliens (Wayne Barlowe) was dissatisfied with the final product. Plus the weird cat people are horrifically inaccurate to what a real alien would look like.V 23 Comments
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

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
It's sad that Ledger's overrated portrayal as the joker encouraged several criminals to be like him. Those are probably the same losers that gave out death threats to people that said anything other than perfect about this movie. This movie is very overrated.V 31 Comments
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
This needs to be #1.
I can't believe you people think "Titanic" is overrated... - Celestius
Titanic sucks. It was boring as hell, had too much talking, no funny moments, and was just something for women to see with their boyfriends. END. OF. STORY. - greatesttop10s
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
While I'm sure this film is over-hyped by its fans, I wouldn't say its one of the most overrated movies. Now even the truly worst movies have fans(the existence of the police academy sequels and any baby genuises films are proof), but the truly worst films(apart from the dark knight rises and any Michael Bay movie) aren't too overrated to be called one of the most overrated movies. High school musical is not treated as a high pinnacle in film making. It's not highly loved for high-tech images, and it's not treated as intellectual nor clever by dumb pseudo-intellectuals(like the Nolanites). Plus, I don't recall high school musical fans giving out death threats to people for saying anything short of great about the movie(like the Nolanites and many twilight fans). Compared to several other films on this list, this film is rated too properly to be considered overrated. One other thing, you're wrong aman28. The other nine movies up here do deserve to be called overrated.V 18 Comments
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
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.
This is the best movie ever and it deserves to be overratedV 20 Comments
The thing with this movie is that it has a certain humor that only certain people will find funny. I honestly found it hilarious. There's nothing wrong with hating it, you just can't say the movie is bad.
I agree, I heard how funny this movie was and everyone I knew kept on quoting it so I decided I HAD to watch it, so when I finally did, I was so disappointed. the movie seemed really dull and not funny and I barely chuckled. - Cookz90
BORING! I had to switch to Vince beating his nuts in a slap-chop, id rather watch it than watch this bs. And every one is like napoleon Dynamite is so amazing, its really not, even stupider than Mamma-mia - theTwister
Top 10 comedy. If you don't get it you're dumb. - ColtIsGodV 17 Comments
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.
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. - Uner1996
Sadly the sequel is one of the best movies ever, and gets the same credit. This movie is ok, but nothing goodV 18 Comments
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!
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.
While it is often regarded as the best film ever it has multiple flaws. Significant Pacing issues that can make this film unimaginably boring, issues of repetive visuals that can also be a problem and the main theme about monolith providing evolution is not profound or interesting at all. And of course the film is incoherent at times. People might be bothered by the lack of dialogue or good characters other than Hal.
On the positive, this film focuses on humanity and its history, specifically its future some of it's themes are successful, the sense of isolation is quite established and it has an effective atmosphere on that regard. Hal is a good character, and it is a good horror film. The biggest positive of the film it how it succeeds to make you think about humanity as a whole and empathise with it.
Overall a good but extremely overrated by many film
Please. If the pacing bothered you enough to post that then go watch Armageddon. I am absolutely stunned by how many of you lack any intellect sufficient enough to prepare a bowl of cereal.
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.V 25 Comments
I think that the overrating aspect for this movie comes mainly from the media related to the hollywood executives politics ( they have to sell and make as much of money ) but the movie is actually very good ( not the best film ever made but nevertheless a very entertaining movie ). Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso was in my opinion a very good choise ( her performance is outstanding and she's a very beautiful actress ) and come on, this was the last time for Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia ( too bad she died a few weeks later [ I wish she didn't ] but closing her carreer in a same role that made her an icon couldn't been have better ). Overrated? Maybe. But the film is not bad at all and certainly worth to watch.
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.
Its one of the few movies that I stopped watching it
How did this crap become a classic? - RalphBob
The atmosphere was okay, but everything else just screams "college project".V 5 Comments
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.
It's not really that good of a movie. #DCCOMICSV 36 Comments
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 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.
I hated this movie. Merida is the worst Disney princess ever. She's a whiny spoiled brat... The plot is pretty much "mom and daughter have a bad relenship so daughter turns her mom into a bear" seriously... This movie is crap. We have Beutiful princess like belle and Mulan and then this...?V 11 Comments
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!
I think nostalgia is the only reason these movies are so beloved, if the very first Star Wars movie came out in the year 2015, I feel like the majority of the audience would be like "this is really stupid"
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.
Wow. Someone actually had the nerve to put this one here.V 10 Comments
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.
Why is this on this list? This movie is UNDERRATED more than anything, people rave over the overrated garbage that is frozen while this movie is MILES better, get this film off this list, any hype this film gets is deserved
Completely overrated, I agree. It is amusing, sure, but it's not that good. Disney has much, much better that doesn't get as much attention.V 6 Comments

This is a good movie but on the imdb top 250 its number 1. That is too much.
It was a good movie but certainly not the best of all time.
It doesn't deserve its crown of IMDb for starters. Many movies after that have far surpassed this dinosaur in terms of concept, creativity and richness. Its sitting on top purely because IMDb is rigging the poll and keeping it there.
This is one of the best movie of all times. Complicated and nuanced plot and phenomenal acting. I absolutely love this masterpiece
Extremely debatable if this is ACTUALLY the greatest movie of all time.V 18 Comments
It's a little bit chaotic ( too many characters ). The second movie was totally different and way much better. For once it seems that they learned from their mistakes. This one ; not that good and overrated. The second one ; good and strangely for some reasons underrated.
So bad the jokes are lame and boring characters 4/10
Just a horrible movie

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.
