101 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.

102 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.

103 Bridesmaids
104 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.

105 Shakespeare In Love
106 District 9
107 Mary Poppins
108 22 Jump Street
109 Gone with the Wind

I'm surprised that something this long and monotonous was recognized as one of the greatest movies of all time. Still a great movie though.

Never liked that movie. So boring. Tried to watch it once to understand " why? " but I don't get it. Where's the praise for that movie? Overrated.

It was an epic film and probably great for that time and definitely a classic yet still overrated.

110 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

The series is already overrated

Best Harry Potter movie ever without a doubt. - JustinDanger

111 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

This movie is great! It's one of my favorite childhood movies!

Time has not been kind to this film, just look at the sets!

It is no way true to the original book. Too much emphasis on songs, Oompa loompa songs sound like racist minstrel shows than the creative songs in the book, there are plot holes and it brings Charlie to the level of the bratty kids through the fizzy lifting drinks.

Uhh... I thought it was Charlie and the chocolate factory?!

112 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

It was so boring! Other than the occasional fights and that bit where the hunchback is in the strip club, its not interesting.

Predictable and pretentious. Id rather watch traffic go by. At least I would see an occasional bumper sticker with more depth, intelligence and meaning.

114 The Shining

I actually like the changes that Kubrick made. It's nothing like the book and that's ok. Adding the maze was a great metaphor and nice visual touch not to mention the added potential for tension. The problem is in the word potential. It's a horror movie! Build some tension and add some scares for gods sake! This movie is almost two and a half hours long. And for the most part nothing happens. When something does happen it's over before it can get scary. Seriously, the most frightening thing that happens to Jack is that he kisses a naked old woman.

It's not because this movie is boring or anything, it's just that almost everyone calls this "thing" a classic or a masterpiece. I mean, COME ON. The film completely destroys everything that was wonderful about the book. The acting is terrible. The wife and the kid is annoying, Jack Nicholson is terrific of course, but turning from a psychopath to an homicidal psychopath isn't what I call character develepmont. The rest of the movie is filled with shots of the hotel, creepy occurences that are neither discussed nor mentioned afterwards, a bad and confusing script and finally it ends with a close-up shot of a photograph that eventually leads to these secret messages or meanings that are supossedly hidden throughout this whole movie. Also even back then it wasn't well received (It was nominated for 2 Razzies)

This movie was great and the acting of Jack Nicholson in this movie was mind blowing,I admit that it isn't a very scary movie but it's a quite good movie to watch and people don't much about this movie about other movies - zxm

Not overrated at all. This was a game changer for the horror genre.

The stage musical is great, the movie is okay - Username123

Went on too long, and the plot shift in the second half was awkward.
