The Contenders: Page 4

61 The English Patient

Possibly the longest, most boring, self indulgent piece of crap I've ever had the misfortune of watching. 2.7 hours of my life that I'll never get back.

Why does this need to win 9 Academy Awards

62 Whiplash
63 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

I agree with the other person get this off the list! I'm 18 years old girl and I really liked this movie. It is fun and entertaining and can be watched over and over again which is exactly what I do sometimes only I skip little parts of it but most of it I will watch again. Also I've been wanting to get a minion toy or a minion so that I can have it as an souvenir ( although it won't count as that if I get from where I live which is Canada which I know I can since I already saw many of that). - LucyLu18

I can't stand all the publicity this thing got. It's a decent movie, but after a while, it gets repetitive and predictable. I liked it the first time I watched it, but every time after, it got a little more stale. It was meant just to appeal to kids with those yellow things, and have a cheesy message.

It's a good movie! It's just the Minions that are really annoying. Seriously, you see them everywhere. Literally. Everywhere you look. The plots for the movies are good, but some of the jokes are irritating. (The bathroom jokes mostly)

Minions are creepy overrated wheirdos, like Oloaf!
I really, really, do not like it!

65 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.

This movie was bad, but most people don't like it so it isn't overrated.

66 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

67 Monty Python and The Holy Grail

It was probably ok for its time but now it just seems like a mix of boring skits. If you are younger than 50 don't watch it.

Not that funny and DEFINITELY NOT the funniest movie ever

This movie is hilarious

This was quite possibly the worst movie I have ever attempted to watch. I could not even make it through the entire movie.

68 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

69 Alien

Are you kidding? This is one of the best movie ever made in the SF-Horror genre. And Sigourney Weaver ( in fact all the actors and actresses ) gives an outstanding performance. This movie is a classic and it's becoming a cult movie. Doesn't belong on this list for not one bit! Get this movie OUT OF HERE!

It's not overrated, there were very few movies of this kind when this was created. - zxm

This is a fantastic film! - BeatlesFan1964

70 Hotel Transylvania

It's a little bit chaotic ( too many characters ). The second movie was totally different and way much better. For once it seems that they learned from their mistakes. This one ; not that good and overrated. The second one ; good and strangely for some reasons underrated.

So bad the jokes are lame and boring characters 4/10

Just a horrible movie

WHY IS HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA - ANIMAT'S REVIEWS SO POORLY RECEIVED FOR AN ELECTRICDRAGON505 VIDEO?! HE WAS RIGHT, ESPECIALLY ON THE ONE-DIMENSIONAL CHARACTERS>:(

71 Interstellar

Movies like this, Inception, and Gravity get labeled as some of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time. Modern sci-fi movies like these are just awful and overrated. Interstellar is incredibly boring and unrealistic (as it's presented as completely possible), Gravity is the same, and Inception is just okay/above average.

The plot twist at the end is absolutely stupid

Its overrated,little bit of,cause people though it would be next inception,but I have to agree still it was a mind blowing legendary from nolan - zxm

72 The Shawshank Redemption

This is a good movie but on the imdb top 250 its number 1. That is too much.
It was a good movie but certainly not the best of all time.

It doesn't deserve its crown of IMDb for starters. Many movies after that have far surpassed this dinosaur in terms of concept, creativity and richness. Its sitting on top purely because IMDb is rigging the poll and keeping it there.

This Movie Is The Best Prison Break Movie Of All Time The One Thing I can't Understand Is Why Do Both Guys Look Just As They Were 20 Years Before? Apart From That It Was Great

Great movie, but definitely not the greatest. - naFrovivuS

Decent

74 Tom Jones

Easily one of the best comedies ever.

75 Pulp Fiction

Tim Burton is far more over-rated than Quentin Tarantino. What really pisses me off is we're at 58 and still no Burton movies. Without Nicholson and Keaton's amazing acting, 1989's Batman is garbage. Watch it again now that you're all grown up and see for yourself.

Just look at the movies " Kiss me deadly " from Robert Aldrich and " The killing " from Stanley Kubrick and you will see that there is no originality in " Pulp fiction ". Tarantino just copied the story and style from this movies! After the succes of Pulp fiction critics were saying that this was groundbreaking in history of movie and many people believed that ( mostly kids or people without any knowledge ) but in fact this was all wrong. A movie that is ok and entertaining but way too overrated for it's originality!

Even the scene with the dance contest at the diner with the seats made of cars is copied! Comes from an Elvis Presley movie " Speedway " ( a diner with seats made out of cars where's a contest ).

This is my favorite film. - BeatlesFan1964

76 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

Pretty much all of the fanbase for this movie now just consists of all the Frozen haters

77 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?

This film is great I love it. - JustinDanger

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

This is one of the best superhero movies that deserves the praise. - VicarSlayer23

78 Taken

How many times is the hero shot at, but the bullets all miss? Tripe.

79 Lilo & Stitch
80 Jean Luc Godards: Breathless

I don't think this is overrated. This movie was really groundbreaking and unique ( even now ). Every aspect of filmmaking was different. It's not a fantasy when they called this genre "nouvelle vague " ( aka. new wave. The idea came from the new music trend from Brazil " Bossa Nova " ). You have to understand French to really appreciate this kind of movies ( some words or expressions can not be translated in subtitles ). This movies are more a state of mind rather than a coventional story but that's the point in all movies from Jean Luc Godard.
