Top 10 Movies People Call the Best Movie of a Year but Aren't

This list is not opinionated, it's specifically saying a movie is the most overrated in the year it came out in

The Top Ten

1 Forrest Gump

Pulp Fiction and sawshank are better.

2 Titanic

Sappy romance movie. Look, I believe this film has a brilliant cast. But I'm sorry Cameron, I have to go against this movie. You put in a brilliant cast, but this is, just, not the movie for the brilliant cast. And one last thing, how is Titanic preferred over Life is Beautiful? - jack2244

You should have put Zootopia and Frozen here - christangrant

3 The Empire Strikes Back

I'm going to put it this way. I love this movie. It is one of my favorite movies. But even then, I don't believe it's the best movie of 1980. Yes, I just disagreed with The Empire Strikes Back being the best movie of 1980. Fight me, but I have found a movie I prefer over it. Wondering what that is? Raging Bull - jack2244

4 Fight Club

I apologize that I added this. I could argue whether The Matrix or Fight Club could get the fourth spot any day. I could even say American Beauty is a possibility for #4. But today, I'm going with Fight Club. I even could've gone with South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. Now I love these movies I just mentioned above, but I prefer The Green Mile over all of them. - jack2244

5 Star Wars

Wait, your kidding. I just read this was the best movie of 1977? Okay, this isn't an exaggeration. It is a good movie, but sometimes I find it as a hit-and-miss. I preferred Close Encounters of the Third Kind over Star Wars. I even preferred A Bridge Too Far over both of them combined. - jack2244

6 The Maltese Falcon

Okay, you might think I'm joking on this item but I have read some articles claiming The Maltese Falcon to be the best 1941 movie. I honestly think it's a big exaggeration. And I'm pretty sure I don't need to explain what I find superior to the movie. - jack2244

7 The Wizard of Oz

Again, I love this movie, but even then I prefer Gone with the Wind, Gunga Din, Stagecoach and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington - jack2244

8 Frozen
9 Beauty and the Beast

I respect your opinion but I prefer Terminator 2: Judgment Day and The Silence of the Lambs - jack2244

10 Edward Scissorhands

Wait, this awful film (no offense if you like it) is actually preferred over Goodfellas? A film, with an actor I surprisingly dislike, is preferred over Scorsese's classic and rewatchable gangster movie. - jack2244

The Contenders

11 The Dark Knight Rises

Sorry Nolan fanboys, but Marvel's 'Avengers Assemble' was the better movie. Honestly this movie is merely OK. - SuperSonic17

12 The Lion King
13 The Avengers
14 Zootopia
15 Jurassic Park

Again, a movie I absolutely love, and I mean love when I say it. Even then, I prefer the sad and disturbing but classic Schindler's List. Heh, surprising because they are both Spielberg movies. Either way, they are fantastic movies and some of Spielberg's crowning achievements. - jack2244

16 Chicago
17 The Fox and the Hound
18 Oliver & Company
19 Justin Bieber: Never Say Never

Nobody even called it the best movie of any year - jack2244

20 Suicide Squad
21 Sleeping Beauty

For those who follow me then you know that I dislike this film. I'm sorry, I just found it really boring and almost all of the characters are bland and forgettable. No really if you ask someone who is the most memorable character in the movie it would be Maleficent (who I found to be the only good character in the movie). Now don't get me wrong I'm not hating fans of this film for I am in a small minority but how the heck is this so popular other than the fact that it was made by Disney? - Anonymousxcxc

22 The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
23 Avengers: Age of Ultron
24 Deadpool
25 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
26 Minions
27 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
28 Jurassic Park 3
29 Jurassic World
30 Revenge of the Sith
31 Aladdin
32 The Angry Birds Movie
33 Trolls
