82 Rio

Why do so many people love this movie anyway? It uses the exact same plot that you've heard in every single movie before. Seriously. The story line is uninteresting and horribly cliche, the characters aren't memorable, and I just HATE hearing it everywhere I go! I hate how it seems to get so much more critical acclaim than Ice Age! Ice Age was a MUCH better movie than Rio! Plus the jokes in Rio were horribly forced. Barely any of them made me laugh. Not to mention the fact that people use Rio in more animash's instead of Ice Age. Seriously, this movie is just horribly overrated. I hate how people say that its the greatest animated film of 2011 and that people who don't like it don't know a good movie. No, I think I'd know a good movie, considering the fact that this movie was far too predictable and forgettable. The only thing good about it was the animation and music. That's it. It uses every single tired cliche and everything. Ice Age deserved much better attention than THIS boring ...more

What the heck? This movies is not overrated at all. I'm 18 years old girl and I really liked this movie. This movie can be watched over and over again which is exactly what I do only I skip little parts but watch most of it again. Get this off the list because it is a great and fantastic movie and not overrated at all. - LucyLu18

None of you know what overrated means.

THIS MOVIE IS UNDERRATED!

83 The Artist
84 The Silence of the Lambs

It's not overrated. If it is, too bad. It's one of the best movies ever. You make a four star movie, and then tell me about it, and I'll watch. I'll tell the world yours is overrated if I wanted to.

Silence of the Lambs does not age well. Besides the obvious (Hopkins' exceptional acting), the film has many holes; even for it's time-period. Hopkins is a strong actor, in a very mediocre film. The last scene pretty much would never ever happen. It's a film w/ an embarrassing lack of realism.

Good story, good acting good everything. This movie received to many major oscar rewards then it deserved. - preachinpreach

Its not a very overrated movie,it isn't even on top 10 movies of all time lists - zxm

85 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).

Its not overrated IMDB but on rotten tomatoes and metacritics - zxm

86 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

That Empire Strikes Back is in number 15 and this in 85 says a lot about moviegoers... and its not particularly a flattering thing.

Star Wars is the most overstated movie in history. It's just dumb crap and lifesavers. George Lucas movies are the worst

Politically correct crap

SCREW STAR WARS.

I am SO SICK of this franchise of movies. This series should've just stayed as a trilogy and they could've moved on with their lives. But then from Phantom Menace onwards, it was complete garbage. Fight me all you want, but these movies have a lack of character development, poor and unoriginal writing, and only exist so the stupid masses will pay them money as they obsess over the action and whatnot. - DCfnaf

87 Toy Story

How is toy story on this list? It is the best Disney Pixar movie ever made. Whoever who are you are a load of crap, and also, you think titanic is overrated, yeah right (sarcasm)

Finally someone who agrees with me!

89 Bridesmaids
90 Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice
91 Transformers

Please forgive me for putting this trilogy on the list. I usually don't bash anything, but let's face it: the Transformers series is not that great. Yes, it's the first time Transformers goes live action and I know it made a huge amount of money and it has your all-time favorite stars, but they're just robots for crying out loud! It's just a movie series that are made to sell toys. If you like the movie series, especially particularly, I respect your opinion. It's those stupid people and fantards who can't let the movies go, along with the haters. The critics who panned the films are not the problem at all. It only gets an academy award for best picture if it's worth it! In other words, just let it go.

Not really sure if the Transformers franchise can be considered overrated because anyone with even half a brain will realise immediately that these movies are poorly acted poorly written crap by the no-talent hack Michael Bay.

This movie made me realize that the Cartoons that I loved as a kid, really were not as good as I remember.

Loved this one. The other 3 were terrible.

92 The Karate Kid

Does not belong here. Great movie, not a classic but who's saying that?

My favorite movie ever if you think its overrated you have a terrible taste in movies. - JustinDanger

This movie not here in mind. This movie here in heart.

93 Free Willy

To tell you the truth, this movie is nothing special. It's the same story we've seen a million times before. A young boy finds a creature and befriends it.

And plus, the young boy in this movie is an ass! He's horrible to his stepparents and he's just down right unlikable.

94 The Wolf of Wall Street

I love the work of Martin Scorsese but this is one of his " not so good " movies. Actor Matthew McConaughey was a mistake for this movie. Overrated.

95 District 9
96 Crash

Such an humiliating movie from a really good cast. The writing is a complete joke and the emotional scenes are so forced and so contrived it has me on the floor laughin my ass off. Anyone who thinks this movie I better than Brokeback Mountain is a dips--t.

Brokeback fan...feeling the need to make a derogatory remark about another just because of their taste in film says more about the person writing the comment than the actual film!
Crash, by the way, is a great film - not the greatest film ever but nevertheless, still great.

97 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.

Great movie. Yes. Greatest movie of all time. No. -

It is not the greatest movie, it's still good, but it's reputation as the "greatest movie of all time" is really laughable as time went on.

98 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

Best Harry Potter movie ever without a doubt. - JustinDanger

The series is already overrated

99 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

So Overrated Its Here Twice! - VideoGamefan5

I think that the overrating aspect for this movie comes mainly from the media related to the hollywood executives politics ( they have to sell and make as much of money ) but the movie is actually very good ( not the best film ever made but nevertheless a very entertaining movie ). Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso was in my opinion a very good choise ( her performance is outstanding and she's a very beautiful actress ) and come on, this was the last time for Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia ( too bad she died a few weeks later [ I wish she didn't ] but closing her carreer in a same role that made her an icon couldn't been have better ). Overrated? Maybe. But the film is not bad at all and certainly worth to watch.

100 I Am Legend

Its more of underrated - zxm

NO! WHY DO PEOPLE HATE WILL SMITH SO MUCH! HIS ACTING WAS AMAZING IN THIS MOVIE! THERE ARE ALSO SAD, TEAR JERKING SCENES
