21 American Sniper
22 The Hangover

Oh good god. Why do people consider this one of the greatest comedies ever made? Yeah, the sequels suck, but why does THIS movie get respect. The plot is like every other movie like this, the characters are not memorable and it's NOT FUNNY!

Hangover 1 is NOT Over-rated. Stop judging it based on the sequels

It is seriously unfunny for a comedy movie.

This was actually a masterpiece that needs an Oscar as well as my favorite movie. - AlphaQ

24 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.

How dare you put my favorite movie on here with all these other crap movies. 2001
is the greatest movie ever made.

25 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

26 The Wizard of Oz

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.

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.

Movies weren't as good as today people we have heaps of technology! Technology is all u people do now

27 Les Miserables (2012)

This should have stayed a book. But instead we got big name actors singing like animals getting skinned alive - ArpstaAmy333

Just one word "Awful"

I just hate Musicals in movies. I don't know why. I...just hate it.

28 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.

29 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!

30 Gravity

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.

Yeah, I watched it in 3D. And it was the most boring movie I ever watched in the theaters. There was no plot and critics just sucked up to the wasted talent of two admittedly great actors (more Clooney than Bullock, though, and he was only in for less than half the movie).

I liked it, but 9 is better. - Extractinator04

31 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

32 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.

33 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

It got way too many awards. Bs story. It could have been a Bollywood movie.

34 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.

35 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!

36 Scarface

This should be in the top 10 part of this list. Plus, this film's fanbase is among the worst.

This movie is a joke and Al Pacino's performance has a lot to do with it being a joke.

Okay this is little bit of overrated - zxm

How can a movie be good if it has no character devellopement

37 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.

38 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

39 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.

And people say The Avengers is overrated.
