42 La La Land

On my first viewing I thought it was amazing. On my second viewing...was kinda boring. The flashy spectacle and melodramatic relationship between Mia and Sebastian only were made for a one time view I guess. A wanna be "Singing in the rain" (But kinda nice try thou) The visuals, music and cast are splendid. As for the pacing and memorable elements. Not really, by moments it seemed like the film was of "art cinema" genre cause it lost me a couple times during the 1st half. They just rushed into the dancing bits and music-romantic moments the whole first half and they neglected the element of relatability and connection (this by not having a great script that matches the visuals and music). In short the movie was ok. But is, all in, a lot of noise and little substance. The ending was really good thou. But still, the development into getting there felt (and was) really slobby. Overrated indeed.

Outstanding performances, awesome use of colors and lightning but...boring as hell. Showtunes sounding like outdated forties / fifties musicals, dancing that tries to look ( and not succeeded ) like a Fred Astaire / Ginger Rogers movie. In my opinion, a movie that was not oscar-worthy.

Can't believe the critics gave this movie a higher rating than Hidden Figures.

What do people see in this movie other than its just a musical essentially. - htoutlaws2012

Nominated for Best Screenplay. Enough said.

43 The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring

Lord Of The Rings And Anything Relating To It Is Awesome

Noo this is part of the best movie trilogy ever made

Finally Something I Agree With - BeatlesFan1964

44 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.

46 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.

47 Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump is a great movie, but it is a little too overrated by many critics. Now, I do not hate the film, I myself like it, Robert Zemeckis is a good director (Back to the Future). It is a fun and cheerful drama with an entertaining performance by Tom Hanks. However, I was not happy with the fact that this movie won the Best Picture Oscar for 1994 over The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction. In all honesty, Pulp Fiction should've won the Best Picture Award because of many reasons. One, it has much better writing than Forrest Gump's sappy and sentimental script. Two, the non-linear, intertwining stories are marvels of cinema and revolutionized film-making. Three, an AMAZING ensemble cast: John Travolta, Samuel. L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames. Even the small roles played by Christopher Walken and Harvey Keitel are unforgettable; that clearly shows how superior PF was to FG. Fourth, direction, Zemickis's FG was very predictable and he did a little bit of a ...more

This is the most absolutely horrendously STUPID film I've ever seen in my life! The director has as much talent as a leech with a hot rock in its face. He can't tell whether anyone is following a script, which must have been written in the alien language of Zyxxyzzy before being poorly translated into a dialect that they didn't understand. The acting itself is all very basic and uninspired; not putting a thought into how serious or silly it sounded, making every second of this film more dull than Vertigo. Everything about this film lacks any sense of quality, and that's why I loathe it to infinity.

I'm a big fan of Sally Field ( in fact the only good thing in this movie ) but it's almost a pity that she did this stupid movie. And that cheap philosophy line about life is like a chocolate box really annoys me!

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 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

If Brad Pitt is in it, then, it must be bad because he is simply not a good actor.

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

50 Gladiator

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Russell shouldn't play victims. He is better off playing villains and leaders. Give me Master and Commander any day.

Really overrated, seen better movies about Romans, and less predictable ones too

It's a great movie,like I said overrting means that things get more rating that that deserve and this movie deserves the rating - zxm

51 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

52 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

53 Goodfellas
54 Troy

I don't think troy is overrated at all

Agreed.. Can say the same about Johnny depp

Its not a overrated movie,its only rated 7.2 on IMDB - zxm

No good! Never seen a Brad Pitt movie that was worth watching!

55 How to Train Your Dragon 2
56 Sin City

I didn't have as much of a problem with actors. The movie itself is just the dumbest thing you could possibly write. The camerawork is great though. But the story... Wait a minute, there's a story here? I thought it just guys who smoked too many cigarettes and Japanese ninja goddess Sonic carhops beating the snot out of people. Very artistic, as long as it's in black and white.

Really really boring movie, too much narrating

Why does everybody love this movie it sucks the story is confusing this should be number 1

Just to see Carla Cugino naked and the amazing ass of ever Mendez is entertaining enough for me to watch this not best movie of all time but also not the worst movie ever.

57 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

58 Sunset Boulevard

I had heard a long time how great this movie is but it is so boring. Norma Desmund is a totally overrated character. I barely was able to stay up watching it.

This is a great movie.billy wilder is the best I think its underrated I had never heard of it when I saw it

59 Magnolia

Absolutely hated this ridiculously, boring, weird movie.

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

60 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.
