21 2001: A Space Odyssey

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

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

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

This movie really shouldn't be on this list. in my opinion, "2001: A space odyssey" is ' outstanding. The fact, that it was produced in the late 60s and still looks futuristic to this date, the incredible visuals, backed up with Strauß' music which make them feel even more epic, the socio-critical traits in the plot.. and I don't think I even need to go in detail with Hal9000..

Not to mention that it really set a milestone in movie history, revolutionized Sci-Fi movies and inspired countless directors.. and yes it was highly praised and considered a classic and everything, but it's definitely well deserved and from all of the classics there are I'm actually pretty sure it's one of ones, that havn't been watched as much.

22 Django Unchained

This movie is incredible. This movie has everything you really want for just good old fashion entertainment. Because when you think about the plot, it's very simple but genius.

Like every Tarantino movie, a lack of originality. It's just a copy of the many Italian westerns made in the sixties.

This movie isn't as good as everyone claims it to be

Quite honestly, any movie by Tarintino should be on this list! He's an awful director with "NO" imagination or vision. Like Oliver Stone with Platoon, he made it on the map early with Resivoir Dogs... Ever since then he has directed nothing but garbage. You can throw Spike Lee in this catagory also. Lee, Stone, Tarintino all all a collection of talentless idiots!

23 American Beauty

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 " (? ).

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.

UH! Utterly atrocious quirky that has hateful characters and condones lifestyle choices (stalking underage women, drug taking) that makes this film anger inducing to the extreme. The best part is when Spacey is shot in the head, to be honest. - Mrveteran

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

24 Kill Bill - Volume One

The fights (with the exception of the one at the beginning) are pretty lackluster and for a movie that gets endless amounts of praise for it's originality, it doesn't seem very original; especially when one considers the fact that it's made up almost entirely of other movies. This would be fine had it done the other movies justice, but.. Well, lets just say I'm calling it overrated for a reason.

Quentin Tarantino likes to make movies about girls who kill people in impossible ways. It's very genius, if you don't actually think about it.

I am a pretty big Tarantino fan but I really don't see the love for wither of the Kill Bill movies. They're not fun, I find them off-putting and completely lacking in the intelligent, razor-sharp dialogue of films like Pulp Fiction or Dogs. Dunno, guys. Not too much of fan of these ones.

A woman with a sword? Boring!

25 The Social Network

I can't believe that they nominated Jesse Eisenberg at the Oscars for this movie. This actor is so annoying to hear ( Always speaking too fast like he's on meth in every movie he does ). The movie itself didn't give something new or revealing. It was too slow and after the movie you will ask yourself " what's the point? ". OVERRATED!

I like this movie because Andrew Garfield

I like this movie but the fact it got a nomination for Jesse Eisenberg as the Best Leading Actor made me laugh. He ruined this film - trashy acting. - Alexandr

A movie about facebook. Seriously? - Himalayansalt

26 How to Train Your Dragon

People like this movie because it has fantastic animation, likable characters, A good message, and, let's face it, Toothless is adorable.

Well...this movie doesn't seem to be as overrated as Frozen. - xXLittleQueensXx

I don't get why people liked it so much!

Overrated, but it deserves it. It's an amazing movie

27 Requiem for a Dream

It starts off like a bad student film, doesn't know what to do with the middle and just explodes at the end. Technically the last 25 minutes were extremely well done but we needed the previous hour to engage with the character and we just didn't have any of the character ark that we needed. As a result how are we supposed to care about these people. Maybe you did but I didn't.

Best thing about this film was Clint Mansell's score.

It is well made but it shoves the moral down the viewers throat

It was made for it's time.

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.

28 Justin Bieber: Never Say Never

Don't people have to think a movie was good in the first place in order for it to be classified as "overrated"?

I can say never whatever I want! As for the movie, all I can say is, "NEVER create this movie about a boy that has a voice of a woman and dance around like a female latino dancer again"! Plus, don't get started Katy Perry either!

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.

WHY DID THIS GUY GET HIS OWN MOVIE?!

29 The Lego Movie

I just want to throw Legos at everyone who insists this is the greatest animated movie ever, complains about how it didn't get nominated for an Oscar, or sings that stupid song at me.

This movie is vastly overrated. It's nothing but a 100-minute Lego commercial.

It may not be a "great" movie, but compared to a lot of the animated crap their making I rally liked it and had fun watching it. - LostInAParadox

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

30 The Fast and the Furious

"The Fast and the Furious" movies are some of the most overrated films of all time. I really don't understand how these movies draw so much revenue when they're the same as any other generic, forgettable action movie. These movies don't have any plot, no character development, and don't give us any reason to care for the characters. I hope this franchise comes to an end soon. - rapaddict97

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

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

31 Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope

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.

A good movie. When it came out I remember that this movie was very entertaining and the special effects were amazing to watch on the big screen. The problem came afterwards when the movie became such a succes ( for a good reason ) and people became obsessed with it ( especcialy after the first trilogy ). I don't think that this movie is overrated but it's the all " Star wars concept " that in time became overrated by fanatics.

No Star Wars Movie is Overrated. They are seven of the best movies ever made.

32 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

In my opinion, this film was mediocre at best. The acting was subpar, the action scenes were okay, but what really broke the camel's back was the character development, or lack thereof. I couldn't really care about these characters, because we know nothing about these characters. I feel like people only liked the film because it's a Star Wars film. Personally, I think it's overrated. - MasonOcker

FINALLY, this is higher on the list - VideoGamefan5

This Movie Was So Boring

Really disappointing - VideoGamefan5

33 The Smurfs

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

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

They made a movie about this?

How is this overrated? It's garbage.

34 Despicable Me 2

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

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

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

Off The list Now! Its Great!

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

35 Divergent

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

THIS IS COMPLETE CRAP

36 Iron Man 3

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

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

Hey this movie was more overrated than The Avengers.

Iron Man 1: Great
Iron Man 2: Okay
Iron Man 3: Disappointing and misleading.

37 X2: X-Men United

Fantastic film!

Overrated garbage - Th3Zm0nst3r

Underrated its actually great - VideoGamefan5

38 E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial

The game is even worse than the movie!

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

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

Yeah, I found it pretty boring. I guess I see why people like it, but I don't.

39 The Godfather

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

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

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

The Godfather? More like The Borefather!
