The Contenders: Page 6

101 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.

102 District 9
103 Mary Poppins
104 22 Jump Street
105 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.

106 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.

107 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

The series is already overrated

Best Harry Potter movie ever without a doubt. - JustinDanger

108 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?!

109 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

110 300

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.

111 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.

112 Into the Woods

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

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

113 Spider-Man 3

This is underrated, not overrated.

How is this overratedit was panned by critics and audiences alike

114 Mulan
115 Catch-22
116 Brooklyn
117 Million Dollar Baby
118 Clerks

I'd say it's a bit overrated, but Kevin Smith improved this with Mallrats and Chasing Amy. - BeatlesFan1964

119 Despicable Me 2

Overrated, Annoying the hype is everywhere! From curtains, to clothing, to stuffed animals, IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE.

I'm 18 years old girl and I really like this movie. I don't think it is overrated at all. This movie can be watched over and over again which is that what I do with this one and the first one only skipping little parts of it but watch most of it again. In fact I've been wanting to get minion or minion thing for a long time now and I will get it soon since where I live which is Canada has these things and since my birthday is coming up in 2 and a half week I can ask my parents to get them to me as part of a gift basket present. Having said that really liked the movie and is not overrated at all. - LucyLu18

Despicable me 1 was tolarable, but this one, adding almost no important storyline to the franchise, coming before the even worse " Minions" movie, was just so much to take. - alimarashian

120 Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

After flopping in Asia it was sent to America.....the rest is History - preachinpreach

Somehow Ang Lee manages to make his fight scenes fights look both unbelieveable and boring.
