The Contenders: Page 9

161 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!

162 The Phantom of the Opera

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

163 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part I

It's just... So many... Argh I can't say it. But the point is, it's so tiring to watch this movie

164 Perfect Blue

What's so Overrated about that film?

165 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

166 Shrek

Everyone's all like ' Shrek is an amazing must-see! ' But I didn't find it as great as other Dreamworks movies, and hated the part about Fiona and the bluebird. I actually hate Fiona because of that scene. The sequels and stuff are better than the original, which is rare, but true!

It got overrated because of that Shrek is love shrek is life crap - whodafuqisthisguy

I get bored of it after 2007! Like seriously, there's too many sequels and spin offs it's awful!

Doesn't belong here. Don't judge it because of the sequels and hype.

170 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!

171 Mad Max: Fury Road

Has no plot, one of the worst films ever made

Not bad at all. Not as good as the Original Mad Max but to concider this as " overrated " is an exagerated statement.

172 Furious 7
173 V for Vendetta

One of the worst movies ever made! The plot is ridiculous and Natalie Portman CAN NOT ACT!

174 Groundhog Day

I'm sorry but Bill Murray just bothers me, I don't know why, I just can't stand that guy.

Really repetitive (obviously) but in a boring way. - jkilpin

175 Up

You sick heartless human being.

176 Lara Croft - Tomb Raider
177 Hard Candy

Dull and pretentious 'Death And The Maiden' knock-off, consisting of half-assed one liners, dull sarcasm and obnoxiously heavy-handed morality play "dialogue" (which the critics though was "daring" and "intelligent"). If you've seen 'Freeway, Sluth, Audition or the aforementioned D&TM then you've already seen what this movie tried to do done a hundred times better. - Tromeo

This is one of the best movies ever made about pedophil / revenge. Ellen Page at her best! I recommend this movie for everybody who didn't saw this. Definitively not overrated but very good.

178 Beauty and the Beast
179 Sleeping Beauty

An awesome villainess and some beautiful backgrounds can't save the film from its slow pacing and dull leads. Sleeping Beauty puts me to sleep faster than a spinning wheel prick!
