181 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.

182 Tinker Bell

Response : I wrote " not really overrated ". Meaning that this movie is not that bad but also not exeptional and therefor rated for what it is. Fun and entertaining for little kids ( and they don't rate a movie. They like to watch it or they are bored and Tinker Bell is known to be liked by kids exept for a few percentage maybe. ). So, critics and ratings has to come from adults. The problem is, can you really as an adult saying that this is overrated or underrated? You can say it's overrated but what if almost every kid is saying that they like it? Are you right or are they right? What I mean is that you only can really rate this kind of movies based on the reaction and succes from the category of age this film was made for. If adult critics are saying that this is overrated ( but knowing that kids like this movie ) are you really gonna forbid or not let them watch this movie to them? Sure, you can rate this movie as an adult for its techniques, script etc...but do you really think ...more

What does "Nobody except critic from people of that category of age" mean? Sure, it's the strongest installment of the Disney Fairies franchise, but why the heck are you saying that something's not overrated if it's made for little kids? You didn't say whether it's perfectly rated or underrated, so... I'm quite perplexed. - The Ultimate Daredevil, not a fan of Disney Fairies

Not really overrated. Those kind of movies are made for very little kids ( from 10 months till 5 years old ). Nobody expect critic from people of that category of age. For them it's very funny and outstanding entertaiment. Even I as an adult don't think that this is bad movie.

So bad This Should be 7

183 Rear Window

Good actors, good actresses ( with Grace Kelly in her prime ) but the script of the movie is actually so-so ( once you know that a neighbour is a killer it becomes very predictable ). But even so, it's very entertaining and certainly watchable. The main reason why this movie is overrated is because of the poor techniques of lightning used in this movie. The story is supposed to happen during a very hot summer and you don't get a feeling of that ( warm sunlight, shadows, contrasts etc... ). A lot of film-fantasy is taken away ( the feeling that you're part of the movie as a watcher looking through or outside that window ) just because of the lack of that " summer feeling ". You are just watching the acting skills of the actors and actresses, follow the story but you will never get the feeling of being part of the movie or the story. In other words, it's a very good movie but it has no soul.

James Stewart was good, but c'mon people, it's not the best movie. It's not even close. - booklover1

It's an ok film. I just that he is in the stupid apartment for the whole damn time. Seriously, he can still walk, go out and get some fresh air!

184 The Phantom of the Opera

If this is the 1925 Lon Chaney one your an idiot! That is the greatest horror film ever

185 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part I

It's just... So many... Argh I can't say it. But the point is, it's so tiring to watch this movie

186 Perfect Blue

What's so Overrated about that film?

187 Shrek

Everyone's all like ' Shrek is an amazing must-see! ' But I didn't find it as great as other Dreamworks movies, and hated the part about Fiona and the bluebird. I actually hate Fiona because of that scene. The sequels and stuff are better than the original, which is rare, but true!

It got overrated because of that Shrek is love shrek is life crap - whodafuqisthisguy

I get bored of it after 2007! Like seriously, there's too many sequels and spin offs it's awful!

Doesn't belong here. Don't judge it because of the sequels and hype.

188 Spirited Away V 4 Comments
189 Skyfall V 1 Comment
190 The Avengers: Age of Ultron

What an unfairly underrated film. Actually, The Avengers (and I mean the whole saga owned by Disney) is unfairly underrated as a whole!

191 V for Vendetta

One of the worst movies ever made! The plot is ridiculous and Natalie Portman CAN NOT ACT!

192 Groundhog Day

I'm sorry but Bill Murray just bothers me, I don't know why, I just can't stand that guy.

Really repetitive (obviously) but in a boring way. - jkilpin

193 Up

You sick heartless human being.

194 Lara Croft - Tomb Raider
195 Hard Candy

Dull and pretentious 'Death And The Maiden' knock-off, consisting of half-assed one liners, dull sarcasm and obnoxiously heavy-handed morality play "dialogue" (which the critics though was "daring" and "intelligent"). If you've seen 'Freeway, Sluth, Audition or the aforementioned D&TM then you've already seen what this movie tried to do done a hundred times better. - Tromeo

This is one of the best movies ever made about pedophil / revenge. Ellen Page at her best! I recommend this movie for everybody who didn't saw this. Definitively not overrated but very good.

196 Beauty and the Beast
197 Piranha (2011)
198 The Birds

So someone also reaches to the classic movies,anyway its not an overrated movie - zxm

This movie is one of the greatest films ever! Jack Nicholson is a genius in it.
