The Contenders: Page 3

41 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.

THIS is the most revolutionary? The real game changer was the wizard of Oz. That brought colour. That aged well. It felt like a movie today kinda. This aged badly. I cannot stand Susan! "Oh Charlie" "Charlie please...". Shut up!

42 The Amazing Spider-Man

The Lizard is by far the worst developed villain ever put in a Spider-Man movie, he's working on cross-species genetics to try and regrow his arm, while also doing it because they think it can provide the cure for Norman Osborne who is dying, we never see Norman Osborne, not even once, they just keep telling Dr. Connors that he's dying. And they expect us to care about him. And plus, his big goal in this movie was regrowing his arm, so after that happens and he turns into the Lizard, the script has no idea what to do with him. So they just have him hide in the sewer and concoct the most idiotic plan a villain could have, turn all of New York into lizard creatures...WHERE DID THIS COME FROM!?! Seriously, he turns into the lizard, gets voices in his head JUST LIKE NORMAN OSBORNE IN THE FIRST SPIDER-MAN MOVIE, and randomly decides to turn the city into lizards

THE SPIDERMAN TRILOGY was fantastic and spiderman 3 underrated while the reboot amazing spiderman was mediocre and too overrated while amazing spiderman 2 was okay its still way too overrated while spiderman 3 is underrated.

As a Spider-Man fan, this film is such a disappointment. the film suffers with a poorly written script making the protagonist unlikable and the antagonist bland, poor pacing with scenes and unfunny jokes going for too long or important scenes going by in a flash, characters being featured for barely half the film until disappearing from the picture entirely, and trying and failing to hide the flaws of the film with slight references to the comic for the fans of the original source material. by the way, the sequel makes Spider-Man 3(2007) look like Spider-man 2(2004) in comparison - HensilFilms

It's not overrated its underrated

43 Fight Club

Clearly those who dislike this movie are too stupid to understand it. It's a masterpiece and should be commemorated for being amazing.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who thought this movie was stupid, just had a cool name

Too much violence for nothing. Pure sensationalism. What a bore!

It's a great mind twisting movie,but movies like shutter island,memento,the prestige should get same rating as this movie cause they are more mind twisting than this movie,I think they are better than this movie - zxm

45 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

The series is already overrated

Best Harry Potter movie ever without a doubt. - JustinDanger

46 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.

47 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

48 American Hustle

I love Amy Adams and Christian Bale in this movie but I hated Jennifer Lawrence with her annoying voice and terrible accent ( it's her natural voice ). The movie was ok the first hour but after that it becomes a little boring, confused and not very realistic.

This got sooo much hype before it came out because of it's top-notch cast, but frankly it wasn't that good. The story was only okay, although the acting was pretty good. That has nothing to do with the movie though, it just had good actors...

Whatchable because of Amy Adams. But if she was not in the movie it would be very doubtful.

Nothing against Jennifer Lawerence, but she ruined the movie for me.

49 How to Train Your Dragon 2

This movie is garbage. From now on, it shall be known as How to Kill your Dragon 2, because it is dead to me.

50 Zootopia

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.

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

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

It's just a preachy Shark Tale rip-off aimed at furries. - PerfectImpulseX

51 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

52 Cars

As a huge racing fan, I used to like this movie when it came out (I was about 8 years old) and I hate it now. Never even watched the second one. The whole series just gives racing a bad name. I didn't realize that then because I was young and ignorant, but I realize it now. - mister83

Why do a lot of people hate this movie? It's actually a good movie. It's just the second one that's not as good as this one.

This Is The Only Word To Describe This Movie:
Cliche

53 Magnolia

Excellent movie. Especially Tom Cruise's performance. - BeatlesFan1964

Absolutely hated this ridiculously, boring, weird movie.

Wasted 3 hours of my life...really boring movie

54 Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
55 Whiplash
56 The Dark Knight Rises

Just because "the dark knight" is a good movie, do not mean that "the dark knight rises" is a good one. The movie has so many plot holes! And Bane is not scary at all! - hurrhurrman

I dislike the overly dark tone. Batman should be dark but it should also have a sense of fun, which this doesn't.

The movie is boring and gives Batman more punishment than any others. It is a total disgrace to Batman because in the hole, he takes advice from pedophiles.

Yawn

57 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

58 Beauty and the Beast (2017)

Love this movie

Terrible. - 445956

59 Man of Steel

Overrated without a doubt. I'm a big fan of Amy Adams but she is the worst Lois Lane in history ( not her performance ). She should at least have changed her hairstyle and changed her color of her hair. The movie itself was too slow at some moments or too long and intense at moments ( the combination of action and drama were poorly made up ).

Man Of Steel is UNDER-RATED! If anything every other Superman is over-rated --- even I and II! I've always felt that if Superman were real, people would fear him. come on, the fact that he is an alien alone would be a very, very big deal in real life. How would prize-winning journalist Lois Lane NOT know Superman is Clark Kent minus glasses in real life? The villain, Xod, was realistic too. He simply had a job to do. No real villains ever view themselves as villains. People were simply upset that it was so different than any other Superman story and the fact he kills Xod. And they just don't get it! SOMEONE FINALLY GOT THIS STORY SPOT-ON RIGHT! the best Superman Movie ever and the most realistic by far! Man Of Steel has "Made Before It's Time" written all over it. It will age well and become a mainstay on under-rated lists by 2030. Mark my words!

I'm not sure how this one's overrated. It's got a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it's really more underrated and true to Superman law.

Okay, let's be nice,man of steel is good movie, terrible fan-base though

60 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Not so bad. It's a little bit slow at some moments but it's still a watchable good movie. I'm not a fan of Jim Carrey but to my surprise his acting skills for drama / serious roles were amazing.

Underrated! - BeatlesFan1964
