The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

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

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

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

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 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.

This movie is AWESOME! - BeatlesFan1964

A woman with a sword? Boring!

24 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

I like this movie but it's the most overrated family movie EVERR period.

Overrated is not always bad movie like this case it is good movie but very overrated and everyone give a credit more than it deserve - Thirdwind

25 Scarface

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

Seriously bores me to death.
One good bit in this movie and it's at the end with all the shooting.

Drags on and seriously one of the worst overrated movies I've ever seen

Okay this is little bit of overrated - zxm

This is the best movie ever! How is this even here?!

26 The Smurfs

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

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

They made a movie about this?

How is this overrated? It's garbage.

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 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!

29 E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial

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?

The game is even worse than the movie!

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.

30 The Notebook

I think this movie really doesn't belong in this list. It's a movie because of the story that you like or don't like, but the film itself is very well done. And the acting of Rachel McAdams is certainly not overrated.

Don't find it as good as others do but yea it's A BIT overrated since people treat it like God created it. - AlphaQ

31 Iron Man 3

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

Hey this movie was more overrated than The Avengers.

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

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

32 X2: X-Men United

Overrated garbage - Th3Zm0nst3r

33 Citizen Kane

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.

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.

Here's the thing about this movie. It's a great movie and I still consider Orson Welles to be brilliant. However, this movie was released in 1941. Time has passed and things have changed. Better movies have come out. People are still saying this is the best movie of all time, but it's not. It's great, but not the greatest. - MarianasPilots

I think its underrated cause it didn't got any oscar,any movie at this quality which doesn't got any oscar is clearly underrated - zxm

34 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.

35 Spider-Man 2

Oh, definitely! Far from terrible, but Mary Jane and Peter Parker were pretty damn bad in this film. Doc Ock turned good at the end of the film (unlike after 50 years of comics) and they turned a powerful storyline into something decent yet dull. Why are the newer movies hated again?

I liked this movie, but to be honest it's not as amazing as they say it is.

It's pretty good, but not one of the best superhero movies ever like people say.

This film is great I love it. - JustinDanger

39 Paranormal Activity

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. - VicarSlayer23

I hate all of these movies. All of them.

It wasn't scary AT ALL

sucks - nickisawesome
