146 Schindler's List

Not anywhere as good as 'Escape from Sobibor' for a holocaust movie. EFS is sad one moment and very encouraging and entertaining the next moment, like when an elderly Jew is very excited saying 'we are killing the Nazis'. And the scene where the pistol fails to shoot a man but releases a bullet when pointed to the ground, selecting someone to die with, etc.

Just another " morality " movie to show us the eternally " we suffered so much " Jewish attitude. I think they have to stop their self- pitty seeking attention. Don't get me wrong, I think that Jewish people did suffered in the history of mankind but I think that it is now exagerated to seeking all this attention for something that is over. They are doing very well now in the world. Besides, in my oppinion, black people did suffered even more because they were taking away from their homeland for slavery, their names were changed and after generations all this men and women don't even know their origins.
Their souls were litteraly taken away from them. So, I think that movies like this one are beginning to get boring for the all-public and just because some elite people will Always trying to sell us pitty and saying that the movie is good ( it's so Obvious )makes movies like that genre very overrated. And after all " Schindler's list " was not a great movie. It did get just many ...more

It was good but overrated as a movie got too much on IMDB - zxm

This movie get heaps of praise for two reasons. The subject matter and the fact that it is B&W. It's not even well shot B&W. Liam Neeson is terrible in the titular role. The scene where he breaks down and cries at the end should have been emotionally charged but it's just cringe worthy. I can't take Spielberg's bookending his movies with modern day scenes. We don't need it put into context. He did it with Saving Private Ryan and he does it here with the colour scenes at the beginning and the end. It makes the whole thing feel like a play.

Ralph Feinnes is great. The one good thing about an otherwise terrible movie.

147 Borat

Typical Jewish humor ( they think that they can make fun of everyone but when you make fun of Jewish people they're suddenly offended ). Like all Sacha Baron Cohen movies, stupid racist jokes.

This movie just blows, everyone thought it was so funny, but it sucked the big one, would be on my list of top ten worst movies of all time behind Dracula 3000

At least dracula 3000 was funny

148 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

I understand this movie was the first full-length animated movie, but seriously? The majority of this movie is filler-deer and bluebirds running around and singing are okay, but not for 90 minutes! Plus, Snow White's voice sounds like a chipmunk harmonizing with nails on chalkboard. And she's ugly! Seriously, if she were the fairest in the land, she and the Wicked Witch would have to be the only two women in the entire kingdom! (Actually, that would explain a lot... )

This movie is just plain stupid. The characters are boring and Snow white was not beautiful...

149 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

150 Space Odyssey

Never understood why this movie is so downgraded by most of the people. This is a great movie and I don't think that the script is boring. Wasn't overrated at the time it came out and is still not overrated. This movie just doesn't belong here. It feels not right on this list.

I will never get this film. I think Kubrick lost his mind on this one. Critics say it's in there top 10 well it's in mine bottom 10.

When this came out it was new light for movie people. Now looking back....overrated - preachinpreach

151 Chocolate
152 Inherit the Wind

Great classic! Based on a true story too!

153 Good Will Hunting

Launched the careers of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, but I still don't know how.

154 The Little Mermaid

This only being 110 on this list makes me wonder if people understand what the word overrated means. Frozen at number five but this being so low? Frozen gets a ton of hate and barely has half of the fan base and praise The Little Mermaid does. TLM is incredibly loved (Mainly for nostalgia from most people) but I find this movie extremely unwatchable and doesn't hold up to the praise it gets whatsoever. The movie is boring and lagging with annoying side characters, a horrible moral, plain animation, mixed messages the whole way through, terrible humor, Hand don't even get me started on the awful main characters Ariel and Eric, two of the worst characters Disney has made. The only thing that I thought was okay was the songs, but even then the songs are horribly overrated and doesn't hold up to the praise they get. Honestly this whole list is pretty bad and it seems people don't understand what overrated means. The Little Mermaid should at least be in the top ten. - EllaInTheRankings

Despite the great musical numbers and fantastic villainess Ursula, the movie falls short with its heroine Ariel. She whines and complains throughout the whole movie: "I want legs! I want a prince! But is it worth my voice?!? FML! " Curse you, Hans Christian Andersen...

The anti-feminist portrayal towards Princess Ariel shows exactly why The Little Mermaid is overrated. I have always preferred Big Hero 6.

155 Spirited Away

I loved this movie

What? This was a great movie!

This movie creeps me out - Username123

NOT GOOD - AdoofusHitmanler

156 Close Encounters of the Third Kind
157 Mystic River

Interesting story, great acting. Who put this on here and what didn't you like?

Who put this here,this movie is UNDERRATED - zxm

158 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

My sister is a Harry potter fan! So, a long time a ago she started the book and wanted to see the movie. We both ended up not liking it! First off, it's the worst acting I've ever seen! I know there young and all, but that's no excuse to me! The special effects are cheesy, annoying soundtrack, and just plain awful!

Why the heck I this on here? This is my favorite childhood movie ever. It gives me nostalgia, and it's extremely creative. Plus, nobody talks about it EVER.

This is underrated because it's the only film in the trilogy that is truly close to the book.

Wasnt good as the part 3,little bit of overrated - zxm

159 The Boondock Saints

7.2 would be good, 7.9 is kinda overrating. but out of IMDB this movie is not overrated. - zxm

160 The Breakfast Club

There were many good movies in the 80's but why this one is becoming a cult classic is beyond me. All the characters in this movie are bad and poor in acting. The script is one of the most boring scripts of all time. If you never saw this movie, don't bother, you will miss nothing special in your life and you can easely skip this stupid movie.

There's only one thing that's good in the movie. The song by the " Simple minds " ( Don't you forget about me ).

It's got a unforgettable song in it, there's 80's icon Molly Ringwald in it ( but not her best performance ) and some good one-liners in it, but the movie itself is boring and certainly not that good to be concidered as a cult-classic.

This is an overrated film. - BeatlesFan1964
