The Contenders: Page 9

161 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

162 Chocolate
163 Inherit the Wind

Great classic! Based on a true story too!

164 Good Will Hunting

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

165 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.

166 Spirited Away

I loved this movie

What? This was a great movie!

This movie creeps me out - Username123

167 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.

168 Close Encounters of the Third Kind
169 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

170 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

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.

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!

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

This movie sucks. I definitely wish that they would kill this already. - davidis4god

171 The Boondock Saints

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

172 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

175 Furious 7
176 Grease

Overrated? This is suposed to be a adapted filmversion of the theatre-musical from 1972. And I think they succeeded to do that very well. Songs were adapted for 1978 and the soundtrack had that same year many songs that went number one in the charts all over the world. The story? well, it's a love story about a " nice " new girl ( Olivia Newton John ) in highschool who fells in love with a gang-leader ( John Travolta ) with a heart of gold but who is acting tough in front of his gang trying not to lose his face and feelings before them. So, what is overrated? The songs? The story? It's a movie / musical made for fun and entertainment. You don't have to look any further than that. You like it or you don't like it ( there's always pro and cons for everything in this world for " art " ) but it's certainly not an overrated movie. This is a classic / cult movie now for a good reason. You will never be able to re-make ( if they should try to do so and I'm not talking about Grease 2 here ) ...more

Grease? Overrated? This has to some stupid joke.

177 Transformers: The Last Knight
178 Tinker Bell

Response : I wrote " not really overrated ". Meaning that this movie is not that bad but also not exeptional and therefor rated for what it is. Fun and entertaining for little kids ( and they don't rate a movie. They like to watch it or they are bored and Tinker Bell is known to be liked by kids exept for a few percentage maybe. ). So, critics and ratings has to come from adults. The problem is, can you really as an adult saying that this is overrated or underrated? You can say it's overrated but what if almost every kid is saying that they like it? Are you right or are they right? What I mean is that you only can really rate this kind of movies based on the reaction and succes from the category of age this film was made for. If adult critics are saying that this is overrated ( but knowing that kids like this movie ) are you really gonna forbid or not let them watch this movie to them? Sure, you can rate this movie as an adult for its techniques, script etc...but do you really think ...more

What does "Nobody except critic from people of that category of age" mean? Sure, it's the strongest installment of the Disney Fairies franchise, but why the heck are you saying that something's not overrated if it's made for little kids? You didn't say whether it's perfectly rated or underrated, so... I'm quite perplexed. - The Ultimate Daredevil, not a fan of Disney Fairies

Not really overrated. Those kind of movies are made for very little kids ( from 10 months till 5 years old ). Nobody expect critic from people of that category of age. For them it's very funny and outstanding entertaiment. Even I as an adult don't think that this is bad movie.

So bad This Should be 7

179 Rear Window

Good actors, good actresses ( with Grace Kelly in her prime ) but the script of the movie is actually so-so ( once you know that a neighbour is a killer it becomes very predictable ). But even so, it's very entertaining and certainly watchable. The main reason why this movie is overrated is because of the poor techniques of lightning used in this movie. The story is supposed to happen during a very hot summer and you don't get a feeling of that ( warm sunlight, shadows, contrasts etc... ). A lot of film-fantasy is taken away ( the feeling that you're part of the movie as a watcher looking through or outside that window ) just because of the lack of that " summer feeling ". You are just watching the acting skills of the actors and actresses, follow the story but you will never get the feeling of being part of the movie or the story. In other words, it's a very good movie but it has no soul.

James Stewart was good, but c'mon people, it's not the best movie. It's not even close. - booklover1

It's an ok film. I just that he is in the stupid apartment for the whole damn time. Seriously, he can still walk, go out and get some fresh air!

180 The Phantom of the Opera

If this is the 1925 Lon Chaney one your an idiot! That is the greatest horror film ever
