Most Overrated Movies

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

The Top Ten

1 Titanic

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

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.

Went to see the movie with my wife in the 1990's and, with all the other guys in the crowd rolling their eyes for 2 hrs, all cheered on the inside when this boat sank so we could get out of there.

"My Heart Will Go On" is one of the worst songs of the '90s.

Pocahontas in space! So original! - InsertNameHere

People didn't talk about the story, they talked about the visuals. It's Akira all over again..

I never cared about it either.

The only reason this movie is so successful is because of its 3D features. The movie itself is nothing special, it's just a gimmick. - BlipBlop65

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 Lion King

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

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

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

Think about it, mufasa is a complete JERK. And the fact Disney made hyenas evil that is so so STEROTYPICAL

All the jokes in it were lazy and the plot was weird. Other Disney classics are beautiful and classy and cute and teach kids kindness or bravery or optimism and in this film, the plot is really dark as it was based on Hamlet and the characters where not strong or original. I love Disney but this film is overrated.

5 The Hunger Games

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

Pretty good movie, but not a great one and definitely overrated. - bhopfan

Read all 3 books in high school. I will never understand why they have to make virtually every single YA book into movie series that always split the last book into 2 or 3 parts. - CanConSucks

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

Extremely boring - Dvafan2

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.

La La land was good but the ending ruined it - Toptenanimallovers

7 Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope

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

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

Made me want to go to sleep. at least it's shorter than "Empire Strikes Back".

The only overrated one is the force awakewns - Dvafan2

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

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

8 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

The WORST "vampire" movie EVER!

9 Black Panther Black Panther

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 movie gets over praised for what it means outside of the actual movies. Because it helps further representation. Disney themselves made this movie a movement and highly political where criticizing it became suicide for critics. This movie is factually the most overrated movie in history!

Below average marvel film that was hyped and pushed all the way to a best picture nomination out of critics' fear of looking racist. Pretty embarrassing moment for Hollywood in my opinion.

In fact most people liked this movie only because they were black. Also he isn't the first black superhero. What about blade, and falcon?

11 Forrest Gump

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

12 Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

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

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. - CrimsonShark

The worst movie in the series

I used to be a big fan of Star Wars, until The Last Jedi came out - Charmedyeti

13 Gravity

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

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

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

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.

14 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

Lol it's not overrated

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

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.

16 The Matrix

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

Why is this rated R?

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

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.

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

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

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

24 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

It's not as good as the original ones.

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.

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

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.

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.

30 Citizen Kane

This movie wasnt boring its not the best movie ever but it was intresting - Dvafan2

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.

It’s nothing special

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.

Best Harry Potter movie ever without a doubt. - JustinDanger

37 Monty Python and The Holy Grail

I have a serious grievance with this masterpiece being anywhere on this list... - truckturner

Sorry poor folks, I guess your humour has degraded far too much to enjoy the masterpiece that this movie is! The black knight, the rabbit monster... this movie had me in splits! Such genuine humour. - gaali121

This movie is hilarious

It was probably ok for its time but now it just seems like a mix of boring skits. If you are younger than 50 don't watch it.

38 The Lego Movie

Everything is awesome huh? Well not this crap lame piece of poop! - bigoof

Still don't understand why a lot of adults like this. This isn't a family movie, it's a kids movie. A terrible kids movie. - truckturner

If Everything is Awesome, does that make Hitler awesome? - TeamRocket747

The fanbase of this film is worse than the movie.

39 Grease

Overrated? This is suposed to be a adapted filmversion of the theatre-musical from 1972. And I think they succeeded to do that very well. Songs were adapted for 1978 and the soundtrack had that same year many songs that went number one in the charts all over the world. The story? well, it's a love story about a " nice " new girl ( Olivia Newton John ) in highschool who fells in love with a gang-leader ( John Travolta ) with a heart of gold but who is acting tough in front of his gang trying not to lose his face and feelings before them. So, what is overrated? The songs? The story? It's a movie / musical made for fun and entertainment. You don't have to look any further than that. You like it or you don't like it ( there's always pro and cons for everything in this world for " art " ) but it's certainly not an overrated movie. This is a classic / cult movie now for a good reason. You will never be able to re-make ( if they should try to do so and I'm not talking about Grease 2 here ) ...more

Grease? Overrated? This has to some stupid joke.

This is not overrated. It's more overlooked, and if you don't like the film, I can totally understand you. I myself had mixed feelings about it the first time I saw it. Some weeks passed by, and I just couldn't get it out of my head, and eventually I saw it again, and now I love it. Once you understand what the film is going for and what it's trying to say about depression, loneliness, struggling to connect on a deep level with other people and so on, then I think you will hopefully gain some appreciation.

I was creeped out by this movie. I probably missed some things. But I found it very disturbing and quite directionless. Not overrated though. But unexpectedly disturbing. Especially the oral sex scene. - JoLeKosovo

This film isn't overrated, if anything it's underrated.

Even though barely anyone knows what this movie is. - JakePlaid

41 Napoleon Dynamite

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.

Napoleon Dynamite has a certain style of humor to it. Some may like it some don't. I for one love it - KingFab

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

There's really no reason to like this movie. It's dull, bland, boring, and usually unfunny. I almost slept through this movie, something I don't do often in comedies! The characters are total idiots, the acting is terrible, the story is completely stupid, and the movie is filmed in the worst place possible. Any movie filmed in the country is boring in my experience! Anyway, don't watch this movie, because it truly is overrated.

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

Terrible crap - ikerevievs

THIS IS COMPLETE CRAP

43 The Secret Life of Pets

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

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

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

I think it's okay.

44 Django Unchained

Tarantino's best and most mature film to date. - truckturner

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

45 Zootopia

yes

Oh Disney, why did you make a movie for those Tumblr social justice brats?

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

People like you are the problem in this world. Gay marriage is in no way wrong, only non-humans would think it is. - Solacress

The time it took for this movie to become overrated was quicker than Frozen

46 American Beauty

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

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

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

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

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

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

47 Slumdog Millionaire

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

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

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

Well it wasn't awful movie but I still don't see anything special about it - Magnolia

48 Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas

This should be higher.The a amaded cartoon is much better.

The town is ugly, The Who’s are ugly, Jim Carry is as cringy as hell, the jokes aren’t funny, the message is half assed, and the original is so much better

Boy, did Cumberbatch do a better job than Jim Carrey. - bendyfazjazz234

49 Suicide Squad

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

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

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

How is this overrated if it got negative reviews, I say it's underrated

50 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

After the amazing accomplishments of the LOTR movies, The entire The Hobbit series totally sucked.

Wow, what a stinker. It was an embarrassment to the book.
