The Contenders: Page 7

121 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.

122 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I consider Spider-Man 2 to be overrated instead of the amazing version. This movie was hated by people saying this is worse than the first amazing spiderman so I don't consider this overrated.

I like this. It's not that overrated since not many people like it. - AlphaQ

This Movie Actually Is Overrated, Because People Said It Was Better Than Spider-Man 3 When It Wasnt - VideoGamefan5

This movie was praized by fans because : "It is the best Spider-Man movie sice Spider-Man 2" When in reality it is worse than Spider Man 3.
Bad villians, poor edition and an awful ending.

123 The Avengers

Not let's be clear, overrated doesn't mean that something is bad yet everyone seems to enjoy it. It simply means that something is given more credit than it deserves. And let's face it, The Avengers is completely over-rated. We have been waiting for this for awhile, yet it gives off too much of an "America $%&# Yeah" sort of feel to it.

Lets be honest the movies on here are here simply because we hate it but are probably not THAT bad movies, well they are pretty bad but the ratio of hype to actual value isn't that different, this had so much hype, and ratio wise its pretty overrated because I think it doesn't have much actually good artistic value in it, just explosions, special effects taken form every other marvel movie already made and put together, at least they are good actors

This movie isn't bad but it's definitely not as good as people say. The story is literally bad guy (but a cool one) does something bad, the avengers assemble and catch the bad guy who obviously has a plan, then they fight against each other and bad guy escapes, attacks the city and they beat him. That's it. Maybe it does have some cool effects and actors are pretty good. But, really, what's so special about it. The plot is weak and there is no character development. I watched it multiple times and still can't see what's so good about it.

Gay ass film.

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

126 The Avengers: Age of Ultron

What an unfairly underrated film. Actually, The Avengers (and I mean the whole saga owned by Disney) is unfairly underrated as a whole!

127 Mean Girls

So many people rate this as razor sharp satire, underpinned by a genuinely commendable moral message. However, I have never seen a film so middle of the road before. The humour never goes beyond the obvious, and every 'witty' comment made can be seen a mile off. And as for the moral message that everyone champions - well yes, I suppose it is commendable, but the delivery is without passion and has been done before with more heart and originality. Not a terrible film, but undeserved of its high praise.

I don't think that this movie belongs in the most overrated movies list. Many films of the genre ( highschool / girl problems ) aren't that good and this one was really standing out. Besides that, all the characters were very well played ( especially Rachel McAdams and Lacey Chabert ). If it's overrated ( and I think it deserves to be overrated ) it's because the movie is very good.

I don't object to dumb comedy but this is a dumb comedy masquerading as something more than it really is. It's pretending to be insightful social commentary and it just is nothing of the sort. Having lived in Africa for 15 years I don't understand why Cady Heron has an American accent.

Just because many people like it or talk about it ( in a good way ) doesn't mean that this movie is overrated. If a film is good it's normal that the movie has a lot of fans for it. Overrated isn't based on like or dislike ratings. Overrated means that a film is concidered as good when in fact almost no one like the movie. " Mean Girls " is not an overrated movie because it is really good and very well performed by the actors and actresses. Saying that this is dumb ( like one comment says ) because he can't understand why Cady has an American accent after living in Africa for 15 years is " the " dumb comment. Her parents who are Americans moved to Africa where she was homeschooled by American teachers there. Speaking ( with her family and teacher[s] ) and learning in your native language doesn't change your accent just because you're living outside the USA! Plus, it's suposed to be a comedy, not an intelectual insightful sociologic movie. Not overrated!

128 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.

We all though this is an overrated movie but when this movie was slammed by Birdman then we all knew there is an MORE overrated movie than this one - zxm

Incredibly overrated. I personally disliked this movie.

131 Black Swan
132 Dirty Dancing

Too overrated, bad acting, boring story. It's supposed to be a story of the early sixties and nothing matches with that era. Oldies combined with new music (? ), clothes that looks like 80's outfits, haircuts no one had in the 60's. I hate when they make movies of a certain era and where details like clothes, music and so on aren't well done. Just for that movies like this one doesn't deserve the attention of being appreciated or get the cult-status like it has now. A bad movie wich many people do like and for that reason way too overrated.

Sure, it's a good movie, but no way deserving of its Academy Award.

Good movie. Should it have won the Oscar? No. - BeatlesFan1964

This movie took oscar over inception so,I think its little bit of overrated,though its good but inception was better - zxm
