Top Ten Movies that Aren't as Good or Bad as They are Commonly Thought to Be


The Top Ten

1 The Dark Knight

Honestly, this movie is awesome, especially when you compare it to the crappy superhero films that are made nowadays such as Batman vs Superman: YAWN of Justice. - TwilightKitsune

It is one of the best Superhero movies ever made but it in my opinion is not the best - MarvelExpertJK

I know, I know, APPARENTLY THIS IS THE BEST SUPERHERO MOVIE OF ALL TIME, but is it really? I mean I'm not saying it's bad but I'm saying its not the best superhero movie and at the least should be rated 8.6 on IMDb not 8.9, Like there are a lot of amazing movies that possibly are better then this one and are rated like an 8.2 like maybe the Avengers, Deadpool, LOGAN, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY?! And yes even Wonder Woman are in a lot of ways better then this movie. - MarvelExpertJK

This movie's overall significance comes from the fact that it introduced the world to a reality where a "superhero" movie could be serious, gritty, and grounded in a post-9/11 environment without losing the essence of the source material. A project like this had never been done before (while 'Batman Begins' really started this up, this film fully realized the potential) and without it the superhero world (both in films and on the pages of comics) might look very different today. This movie was like 'The Beatles' for modern superhero film-making. That can't be understated. - BKAllmighty

I wouldn't call this the best superhero movie of all time...Deadpool and/or Guardians of the Galaxy are much more deserving of that title. - WholeGrainNeko

It is the most predictable, boring movie that "made it" in world history. It influences those who are influence by stupidity.

2 Frozen

People just hate it because of how overhyped it was. - Misfire

The hate is just annoying now - PeeledBanana

That's so true. I know the fans of Frozen can be annoying at times. But, I'm usually okay with a fandom as long as the source material is good. - OnyxDash

I didn't like frozen but I got over it now it is every one else turn

It really isn't bad. It could've without the music, but that only takes up a quarter of the movie.

3 Hacksaw Ridge

It deserves high marks for being so firmly-based on a real man. It should be known that the film actually exempted certain true-life events to make Desmond Doss sound more believable as a war hero. The man was almost larger-than-life. - BKAllmighty

This and Saving Private Ryan are probably the greatest War movies - PeeledBanana

This movie was amazing I got so inspired and I just loved it so I watched it like 31 more times after I saw it in theaters I personally don't like war movies but my brother made me watch it best movie ever! recommended by everyone

This was crap. Nothing like the real war.

4 The Amazing Spider-Man

I like this movie more than most Spidey fans and I didn't hate the sequel either, the only Spider-Man movie I dislike is Spider-Man 3 - kanetheundertaker25

Now the sequel to this franchise wasn't very good, this movie itself is actually pretty good, and in my opinion should be rated much better. No it doesn not deserve anything above 8 but at least an 7.5 - MarvelExpertJK

What leads me to dislike the film is, primarily, it's blatant lack of originality. - BKAllmighty

Deserves the hate it gets as well. - DCfnaf

5 Beauty and the Beast (2017)

This movie is a complete crap. It is all the same and all the action in this movie is not all good. It is all crap

Oh my god, so many mixed reviews about this movie. I personally like it, but some others may feel a little differently...

Not really anything special about this. Other versions were much more well done. - Entranced98

It's not great as the animated film, but I still enjoyed it. - OnyxDash

6 The Fate of the Furious

Just a rubbish movie

One of the worst movies I have ever seen - VideoGamefan5

7 The Passion of the Christ

This thing is nothing more of a 2 hour long torture of Christ film that doesn't do what it was made to do : Make you love Christ even more. This film is so oversaturated with torture and shock elements it gets boring pretty quickly. - UltimateHybridX

This movie is realistic. This is what really happened. Every other Jesus movie is made in a way that families can watch but if you want to understand the full weight of CHrist's sacrifice than it is through this movie that you really see it. - GrimmShady

Yes I know another Mel Gibson movie, but come on he is really good at directing and this movie shows it all. Like I do agree it shouldn't be that much higher then 8.2 but really 7.6 is all you can give it, it being the second and the first highest grossing Rated-R film. - MarvelExpertJK

It's reaLLY good

8 Godfather II

It's an equal to the original film in basically every way. We get to witness Michael's transition from a man to a monster in this film and it is glorious. Getting to watch Robert DeNiro's Oscar-winning performance as the young immigrant, Vito, is a bonus. - BKAllmighty

Now I know the first Godfather actaully made sense since it was the first movie of the franchise. Now these Godfather movies are good with amazing acting from Al Pacinco (Please say that's how you spell his name) and a great Mafia movie but seriously an 9/10 on IMDB? I just think it shouldn't be that good for a sequel and strickly because it's more less the same. I think this movie should be rated at the max an 8.7/10 - MarvelExpertJK

9 The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Everyone says its bad, I found it good - VideoGamefan5

10 The Emoji Movie

To be honest, this movie wasn't Good at all but I think people overhate this WAY TOO MUCH, - VideoGamefan5

The Contenders

11 Punisher: War Zone

Underrated for sure, I do prefer the 2004 Punisher though. - kanetheundertaker25

No I'm not saying this movie deserves to be at like 8 or even 7 out of 10 but it literally is down at 6/10 and sooner or later will go down to like a 5.9/10 which is insane (in a bad way) Now I do think that The Punisher (2004) deserves to be higher then 6.5 but War Zone especially makes no sense and deserves at least the same with the 2004 Punisher - MarvelExpertJK

12 Boyhood

Not much to say but well done and well though and deserves at least an 8.1/10! - MarvelExpertJK

13 Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
14 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

It's not that bad to be honest. - Misfire

I know that I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this one but I really liked this movie. It's not a masterpiece or anything but it was still a good superhero movie. - Anonymousxcxc

The Amazing Atrocity 2 - PeeledBanana

15 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Most of the movies on this list don't deserve to be here, but I thought this movie was alright

16 Pixels
17 Suicide Squad

Gotta admit, the casting and special effects were pretty awesome. The factors that brought the movie down were poor editing, a lazy plot, and cutting out too many scenes, including most of the Joker's scenes.

Flawed yes. But its fun. Why can't we just enjoy the idiocy of it? I would say the same about the banality of James Bond: flawed, stupid, no bearing on anything but, like Suicide Squad, still very entertaining.

Eh. It wasn't the best, but it also wasn't THAT bad. It was at least decent.

Yeah, I can agree on that. It was crap, but it wasn't total crap. There were some things I did like about it. - OnyxDash

Um, deserves the hate it gets. Like seriously, so many flaws - DCfnaf

18 Transformers

The only good one.

19 Spider-Man 2

This remains as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time so why is it here? It's hard to find a person who DOESN'T absolutely love it. - BKAllmighty

It's not as good as more recent superhero movies and has flaws most people overlook, probably due to nostalgia. It's still a good movie just not as good as most remember - kanetheundertaker25

Just like the Amazing Spider-Man this move should have like a 7.5 or a 7.7 - MarvelExpertJK

I hated this movie because of Dr Octopus. Worst villian ever. And Toby sucked. Worst superhero movie.

20 Captain America: The First Avenger

I really liked this movie but I prefer The Winter Soldier - PeeledBanana

It is rated 6.7 not that much more to rate it but it at least deserves something like 7.2/10 - MarvelExpertJK

21 Justin Bieber Never Say Never
22 Spider-Man 3

It's alright for me. Just a bit disappointing. - Misfire

Does not deserve hate, it is awesome and better than many superhero movies nowadays, it is not even close to be as great as 1 or 2 but it is still good - Ale9991

It's no less silly than the other two movies. - Jackamalio

23 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

hate it - VideoGamefan5

24 Ice Age: The Meltdown
25 Twilight
26 Return of the Jedi

Underrated, it was a great conclusion to be considered the greatest movie trilogy - PeeledBanana

People hate this film? Why? I like this film. It's a great conclusion to a legendary trilogy. - OnyxDash

Might not be as good as the previous installments, but hey I really enjoyed it.

How do you hate this?! It is a work of art! George Lucas is incredible

27 Where the Dead Go to Die

It might be bad but I've seen much worse animated and live-action movies than it. - PerfectImpulseX

28 Transformers: Age of Extinction

Loved the first film, thought the third and fifth were okay, but this and the second film were utter crap. Really deserves the hate. - OnyxDash

I personally enjoyed it and thought it was decent. Like 6/10 decent. But whatever clunks your cowbell I guess. - Ultron123

At least something 6/10 or above - MarvelExpertJK

I loved it should have 7.5/10

29 The Lion King

I'm gonna get a lot of flack, but I don't really care...

The Lion King is overrated.

Is it bad? Definitely no. But honestly, I never really liked the film that much. The animation is great and does present a cinematic feel to it. Although Scar is an effective villain and some of the side characters like Timon, Pumbaa and Rafiqi are entertaining and likable, it doesn't help that Simba is a rather bland protagonist. And hate me if you want, but the only songs I really liked was "Circle of Life". Aside from "Be Prepared" Most of them just seem bland or annoying. And considering I actually watched this film for the first time as a teenager, I didn't feel too much for Mufasa's death :/. Yeah, this wasn't a childhood film for me, I lived that out with video games and Cartoon Network for the most part. - CrimsonShark

Glad to see that someone respects my opinion for once. You won't believe how so many die-hard, rabid Lion King fans on this site hate me simply just because I have a different opinion and had the right to have free speech as much as anyone else. They referred me as the "annoying TLK hater" or something like that when, despite my negative opinion on the film, I have a life outside and I don't sit on my butt here at all day. I'm not some evil-doer they think I am. I'm just an innocent person with a good heart.

TLK is so doggone overrated, it reeks. It's like it's fans can't take a different opinion that they want their precious favorite movie to overshadow everything else. It's like if all other movies are hated or forgotten because of TLK. It is just not fair. It is far from being the best like I've mentioned before, and there has got to be films out there that are better or people like more than this overrated mess.

Mistaken as the Best ever when it's far from it. There are better movies out there.

It's not the best movie of all time but in my opinion, it's the best animated one - PeeledBanana

This is my favorite animated movie of all time I'm glad it's number one on the "Top Ten Animated Movies of All Time" list on this site. - PeeledBanana

30 The Avengers

It doesn't hold up great in a post-endgame world, but at the time it was possibly the most ambitious movie ever created.

Although Iron Man and Guardians of the Galaxy are my favorite MCU films, this film is far away from being considered bad. It's the perfect movie crossover and truly revolutionized the same universe genre of film. - OnyxDash

The MCU has better movies than this one. I don't understand why some consider it the best.

I think it's the best MCU movie, but that's just me. - Jackamalio

31 Ghostbusters 2

It's not as good as the first installment but it is still pretty good and is definitely much better than the 2016 movie! - WatcheroftheSkies

32 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Really underrated sequel. I think people hated it because of the female lead, but I honestly didn't mind her as much. - OnyxDash

I liked it - PeeledBanana

33 Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
34 Alien: Covenant
35 Blues Brothers 2000
36 Power Rangers (2017)

Trash - RobertWisdom

37 The Lost World: Jurassic Park

I'd consider this one of the most underrated movies of all-time. I actually enjoy it more than the original 1993 film. - BKAllmighty

Way better than Jurassic Park III!

The first jurassic park was awesome the 3rd one was okay the 4th one jurassic world was the best but the 2nd one is crap

This is definitely underrated. Fortunately, the retrospective reception has been a lot more positive nowadays. People were expecting another Jurassic Park, but I think Steven Spielberg knew that wouldn't work. It's definitely more intense and fast-paced than the previous film, but it still clings onto the sense of adventure and wonder that made Jurassic Park so memorable. Not to mention the darker tone does work. The moral themes of this film are similar, albeit in a different way. And the dinosaurs are as fantastic as ever.

I could go on, but I'll say this; this is probably the most underrated sequel to a film ever and all because people were kind of expecting the same thing :/. - CrimsonShark

38 Finding Dory

I loved this film! I didn't think it would have so many haters. - Absolite

39 Captain America: Civil War

It's a great movie but The Winter soldier is better, if not the Best in the MCU!

40 Logan

This movie is awesome, way too awesome, best movie of the year so far, talking from an objective view, it's great in every aspect - Ale9991

41 Jaws 2
42 Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
43 Ghost in the Shell (2017)

I cannot believe all the crap people say about whitewashing in this movie. Scarlett Johansson did amazing as the major, and doesn't deserve to be hated on. DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER PEOPLE!

Did not deserve to bomb the box office!

44 The Matrix

The things that I didn't find amazing were the performances of Keanu Reeves & Carrie Ann Moss.

45 Rough Night

Just because it's raunchy and Undeservedly bombed the box office doesn't mean it's bad! The sisterly Bond is great though.

46 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

It's not that bad. I just don't understand why they had to put the "nuking the fridge" scene. - Misfire

It's very similar to all other Indiana Jones movies so I don't understand why it's so hated.

47 Gladiator

A great movie, but I wouldn't consider it a masterpiece. The plot is generic, I don't have a problem with it being sometimes historically inaccurate, but it would be great to see a Latin dubbed version of the film, while the soundtrack is one of the best things about this movie, but sometimes it sounds like Pirates of the Caribbean (Not even kidding! ), and Commodus is such a huge jerk! The film itself besides some flaws & plot holes, I still had a great time watching it! Score: 9/10

I thought Joaquin Phoenix was great, but his character was unlikable!

48 Guardians of the Galaxy

I think I'm one of the only people who isn't really into this movie. - Misfire

What? This movie deserves all the praise it gets!

49 Cars 2

It was a different Cars movie, sure, but I thought it was rather enjoyable in its own right. It's by no means the best animated film ever. It just wasn't as bad as everyone says it is.
