The Contenders: Page 5

81 Tom Jones

Easily one of the best comedies ever.

82 Iron Man

The first two are fine. The third one... Ugh.

Overrated and Gwyneth Paltrow was a big mistake for this movie.

Way too much action and not enough plot.

Iron Man 1 will always be a classic. Especially when you have such great small-part characters as Yinsen! - gaali121

83 Jurassic Park

I've never heard anyone say Jurassic Park is overrated! If anything, it deserves more praise, for its story is good, and its visuals still look amazing for the most part despite the movie being from 1993, which is more than can be said from today's pathetic CG fests.

Cgi in the film hasn't aged well people say it has because they grew up with the film

Overrated. But still enjoyable.

It was so boring. I hated it.

84 Lilo & Stitch
85 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.

86 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.

87 Fifty Shades of Grey

Without doubt the biggest waste of time and resources in movie history. This shallow pointless work of art should be at the top of this list. I've never before endured so much hype only to be so much confused after experiencing the show. Worst movie ever!

I'd vote this one, but the thing is, nobody thinks this movie is amazing. This movie is rightfully hated. - MasonOcker

It's A Movie? I Thought Is A Porno That Had A Song Sang By A Half Human Half Tree
And Another one Sang By A Barbie Doll That Can Talk

This should have made the main list. What a waste of time.

88 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.

Love Star Wars movies but this sucked. Way overrated.

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

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

89 A Clockwork Orange

One of the best movies ever made about how the society use it's power in a hypocrit way. How justice is injustice when politics and the power establishment tries to stay in power even against senseless criminality, sex, drugs and " rock and roll ". Many people didn't understood the message of this movie, just thinking that it was a movie just to show free violence.

I don't care about the "social message" it had to provide. The movie was disgusting to watch and hear. An absolute waste of time. "In your face" doesn't always mean great. Every other movie of Kubrick is better than this. - gaali121

I like this movie, but seeing it everywhere on "top 10 movie of all time" lists frustrates me...

Total trash. This is just exploitation cinema at its worst. A weak plot, cheap visuals and poor acting. Total garbage.

90 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.

Message to one and all who think this is overrated:
Citizen Kane came out 1941. I feel it to be still better than almost all (if not all) the movies released in 2016 and 17. The camera work is excellent. Minimalist, but great. The dialogue and screenplay are excellent. Ever seen that time lapse banter between Kane and his wife during breakfast? That's what I'm talking about. That still seems original, to this day. The character development of Kane, his stubborn self slowly coming out with age, and the payoff at the end... all this originality, at a time like that, is thoroughly deserving of praise to be called the greatest of all time (especially considering the time period). - gaali121

91 21 Jump Street

My favorite comedy movie ever - JustinDanger

Hey man, it was funny. Especially Channing Tatum. - gaali121

92 Caddyshack
93 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.

Ice Age is indeed superior to Rio, but not its pointlessly existent sequels.

94 The Artist

Absolutely not overrated. Deserves every bit of praise it has got. One of those rare examples of beauty in simplicity.
Not to forget Dujardin's magnificient act. - gaali121

95 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.

There are so many better thrillers than this one. How people find this "one of the best" is absolutely beyond me. Also, the job of the audience and critics is not to make movies, but to criticize (as is evident from the word "critic"). - gaali121

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 movie, but overrated beyond oblivion. Certainly not among the greatest movies of all time. "Manhunter" (1986), is by all means the best movie in the Lecter series - gaali121

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

Do you even realize how many movies have been made? This movie is in the top 50! That ain't enough? - gaali121

96 Furious 7
97 Ferris Bueller's Day Off

That movie is one of the best comedies ever made it was hilarious. Although it might be a bit overrated it was still a very good movie

Approaching Cult status

98 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

What is this doing here?

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

99 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.

100 Vertigo

Like almost every Alfred Hitchcock movie too overrated. All his movies had bad special effects and bad camera techniques and the lightning effects in all his movies were made like they were the work of some amateurs. The only thing is that a few movies had a really good script ( not many! ) and that's the only reason why he is so estimated with some movie fans. And as for " Vertigo ", this is one of his boring films that are too overrated. He is just one of the most directors of all time and besides " Vertigo " there are many other movies he made that are equally too overrated.

One of the greatest movies ever made. - BeatlesFan1964

Why this film is so popular, I have no idea. There was one good scene, and it was the scene that we've all seen or heard of before, the rest is just about him following her, and not going anywhere, and the stupidest ending ever that made no sense. What, may I ask, is good about that?!?! Hitchcock did this sort of thing with all of his films; he's just a useless hobo who can't direct. - PositronWildhawk

I love hitchcock, psycho, rear window, rope, dial m for murder are perfect movies, but vertigo is so boring, man I can believe this movie is so lovely, I hate this movie, boring to the beggining to end
