Most Overrated MoviesMany won't agree at first I know this. But watch one of these films again and think.
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.
While the CGI and 3D is spectacular, because of the plot, which is a cliche of cliches, it doesn't deserve the recognition it deserves.
This is a movie you have to see in 3D. It's just lost without it. The non-3D (let us call it flat) version of the movie just lacks a lot of the visual thrill of the 3D version, and if you only saw the flat version it would be easy to think this movie overrated. My only objection to the movie was the blatant rip-off of the artwork of Roger Dean. Absolutely no credit given to him, just as Cameron did to H.R. Giger in Aliens, yet those familiar with Roger Dean's artwork will recognize it immediately in this movie.
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.
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.
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.
This should be number 1. Its story just adds something that never really happened to a very sad event. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, or and war film, is sadder. A few thousand people died in the Titanic. Millions of people died in wars, and while I do stay away from war movies for being too depressing, they are still historically accurate. So stop saying this is the saddest movie ever when Schindler's List, The Green Mile, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, and the Shawshank Redemption exist.
I generally didn't like Frozen. Me and my parents were the only ones in the whole cinema when we watched it, it had a very bland setting and all the characters weren't very entertaining. At first I thought it was going to be good because it was already released in other countries, they said it was a good movie at first. I liked it up into I realised how lame it was. What was I thinking when I liked it? I don't even want to mention the annoying fanbase. They throw tantrums at anyone who doesn't like Frozen, they get mad if you don't like the same things that they do. It's disgusting. It's like minions all over again.
It's overrated for the amount of cash it earned and that annoying let it go song. Otherwise its not bad. Frozen 2 on the other hand was better but kids who grew up by now did not like it cause the nostalgia of a kid is hard to meet again.
Frozen is basically the "Call of Duty" of movies.
I mean, this film was loved and worshiped by so many people in a period of time, then suddenly a massive group of haters showed up and either side won't shut up ever since. This comparison is because similarly, the Call of Duty series also experienced a megaton of fanboy worship and blatant hate.
My conclusion is this; Frozen is overrated, but also overhated at the same time, like Call of Duty. It does have its legitimate praise, though I do think it has its problems and I think the film could have been better personally.
Why is Deadpool on this list? That movie was FANTASTIC! Frozen was just an example of a Disney failure. Awful movie. I couldn't think of one good thing to say about it. Soke people might say "It's a good movie. You just don't like it because it's popular". That is totally untrue and here are a few reasons why:
1) The songs weren't well written in the slightest nor did they sound good.
2) The plot twist was fairly predictable.
3) Olaf and Sven didn't do anything for the movie. Olaf wasn't funny and Sven didn't do anything.
4) A princess born with freezing powers? Don't tell me that isn't stupid.
5) What kind of cruel, awful parents lock their child in a room for years? That's abuse!
6) Nothing about this movie was funny. It was really cringy.
7) The story was not good.
8) Anna and Elsa's parents dying was not original at all.
9) Hans was obnoxious.
10) Everything that happened to them seemed so convenient.
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.
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
I hate to say it, but while the lion king is a decent movie it's extremely overrated. Not even a super good movie. It had quite a few flaws and it's shocking just how high it was on the top ten movies list
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
Just another Marvel superhero movie. I never understood why it stands out and is considered to be an award winning masterpiece.
This is mid-tier MCU. The dialogue can be cringey at times definitely. The "what are those" joke comes to mind and then Tchalla is coming back pissed at Killmonger the latter is just like "S'up" when he should be fearing for his life that the guy he supposedly killed is alive and after his life. Also the visuals take a major downgrade especially during the final battle. These are like horribly rendered PS2 graphics when Tchalla & Killmonger are battling on the vibranium mine train. It didn't deserve to be nominated for Best Picture when The Dark Knight freakin didn't
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.
This film is good. It was enjoyable. But not $1 Billion box office, most critically successful MCU film, Golden Globe nominated, Oscar buzz good. Seriously, this is the Marvel movie that gets all that praise? The two films that came between it (Thor Ragnorok and Avengers Infinity War) were both much better. And honestly, like with Get Out, this film wouldn't have done anywhere near as well as is did if it wasn't for the representation. But the soundtrack and costumes were good.
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.
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.
I believe it is way OVERHATED on this site! I personally loved it and if you ask why read my post!
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.
Jlaw wow I am sure if she was in a movie called" I am jlaw ", It would still be the best movie and she would have got the oscar for it because H'wood was obsessed with her.
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.
1. Underrated on the internet.
2. Werewolves are supposed to be humans that shape-shift into a wolf and guess what they are related to a dog and the werewolves are more werewolf than the vampires. Sorry that they aren't Count Dracula.
3.Female stuff is attacked. More and more.
I watched The Raggy Dolls when I was little (sadly only 5 episodes, on a video tape. Never shown re-runs in the 1990s) Maybe The Twilight Vampires should be thrown into the reject bin ahahaahaha.
Vampires made imperfectly.
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
I still hate hollywood for allowing this to happen. can't even watch any off the leads in anything else before hating them for twilight. will never take any off them seriously ever.
The movie itself is bad enough as it is, but the fact that it beat spectacular films, such as Pulp Fiction and Shawshank, at the Oscars, and is remembered as one of the best movies of all time is mind boggling, and ultimately makes it one of the worst movies of all time.
The movie in and of itself is rather boring, there was nothing spectacular about it, but there was nothing horrendous about it. What makes this painfully overrated is the fact that it swept the 1995 academy awards, robbing the Oscars from pure perfect films like Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction.
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.
Forrest Gump is so extremely overrated. It's decent, yes, and I can appreciate it for being a good movie, but it's honestly boring and it's extraordinary that it's number one on the best movies of all time list
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
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
It's a good movie. But people call this flawless and the greatest movie of all time. For the record, not every movie is perfect. Frozen has its flaws (the villain? ), but it's still a great movie. This one is treated like God made it. But if Lucas didn't make this, then where would special effects be now? This is good, but not as good as everyone says. You have to understand that it's been almost forty years since this movie was released, and there are better movies out there. The Force Awakens was much cooler than this, although it felt the same as this one.
To 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
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.
It was great until people decided to make cash graps with movies and T.V. shows
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.
You knew the '' surprising plot twist'' after 5 minutes. We've seen that story many times before.
Man this movie is overrated as fk, yeah the movie has a social commentary but that's all, as a horror movie is just boring
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.
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!
Good movie, but not as good as everyone says it is. The one good special effect I can think of is the lightsabers. Those are awesome. I can not follow the plot, the acting was okay-ish, but for some reason, people think it's a sin if I tell them I'm not a giant Star Wars fan.
Sad to see Pixar fanboys voting this up this movie is better than incredibles up both incredibly overrated movies which are far lower than this movie
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.
Toothless is cute, but Shrek and especially Kung Fu Panda are better franchises. By far.
All of these have such slow build up. The commercials always promise that, "the last 15 minutes will scar you for life." It's true because I'm scarred for wasting my money.
I hate all of these movies. All of them.
Boring and a lot of horror movie cliches.
Overrated all off them
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.
It wasn't bad, it was actually a very good movie, but when I first watched it I thought it could be one of my favourite movies ever. Let's just say it wasn't even close
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.
I personally like watching this movie every once in a while. Not because it's a great movie or anything but because it's fun to watch dumb stuff sometimes. This movie is extremely cheesy, cringy and predictable but also sort of charming. Anyway, I'll get to the point: I don't think this movie should be on this list because I've never heard ANYONE describe this movie as great or amazing or legendary or whatever so I don't think it deserves to be on a list for "overrated movies" because it clearly isn't. It's exactly what most people say about it: corny & cringy
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.
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
The movie is okay
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
Was better on the big screen this movie totally sucked its basically a home movie were nothing interesting happens.
The atmosphere was okay, but everything else just screams "college project".
As a huge racing fan, I used to like this movie when it came out (I was about 8 years old) and I hate it now. Never even watched the second one. The whole series just gives racing a bad name. I didn't realize that then because I was young and ignorant, but I realize it now.
Why do a lot of people hate this movie? It's actually a good movie. It's just the second one that's not as good as this one.
It's stupid. It's cliche. It's just plain stupid and didn't need to exist. Thank god, Ratatouille came out the next year and we got great films from Pixar afterward. (Until Cars 2 came out, of course.)
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.
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.
Don't believe the comments of people who say that the critics who found this film overrated, boring and bad in acting all were wrong! They were right ( for once ). This movie is boring. Sandra Bullock is very bad ( she is screaming all the time and it sounds like she has an orgasm instead of fear ) and the special " action " effects are so predictable that it gives no " viewers effect " at all in matter of being surprised.
I do not get the praise behind this film at all. The big issue with Gravity is that it felt like they spent most of the production into the CGI and special effects and that's it. While I do think George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are great actors, this is probably one of their worst performances I have seen from both actors.
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.
Its incredibly boring, with an unlikable main character. During last Summer, I watched as many classic movies as possible, and I was excited to get to this one. I hated it. I usually don't get bored with movies, like 12 Angry Men is one of my favorite movies, and it has little to no action, but Citizen Kane is downright boring. There was not one scene where I was excited, or interested, and I ended up turning it off with 30 minutes left.
I understand why someone thinks that Citizen Kane is overrated, and its because they thought that it was either boring or too praised. The reason why Citizen Kane is considered to be one of the great films ever made is because of its execution. I do agree on this statement, and there are films that I prefer more than this movie since it's my own personal taste that I have in movies.
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.
I don't like calling things "overrated". So I will just say that I personally don't like this movie as much as most people. Watched it three times and I still don't get the hype. The story felt rushed and didn't draw me in. I couldn't get behind the narrative of the movie. Maximus is a bland character, which made it really hard to sympathise with him. And Russell Crowe had better roles in his life. The only aspect that really stood out to me was Joaquin Phoenix as Commodus, it's a shame that Crowe got an Oscar for this movie but he didn't. All in all Gladiator is an enjoyable little action flick, but not the timeless classic it's supposed to be.
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.
Overrated. Russel was miscast.
This is a good movie, but it's overrated. I love all scenes with the joker because of the amazing acting. The joker is why I love this movie. But I didn't finish the movie because by the time I got to the "Why so serious" scene, I realized any scene without the Joker just isn't worth watching. I've also never really been a batman fan so that's another reason I think the movie is overrated.
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 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 was made for it's time.
