Top 10 Most Overrated Movies of All TimeMany won't agree at first, I know this. But watch one of these films again and think.
this is a list that people put a random famous movie, call it trash, and say why it should not be famous, I understand why avatar, the Lego movie and the force awakens are on here, but brave and Jurassic world are already unpopular. also, quit saying star wars is trash, it is one of the best movies EVER.
I get why this movie is high on this list, but this movie is not nearly as overrated today as it was when it first came out. Unlike many overrated movies that should be higher on this list than Avatar(The Dark Knight, Joker, Forrest Gump, Django Unchained, any Avengers film, any Star Wars film), Avatar's hype was not because of any overrated characters. Does anyone think that Jake Sully, Neytiri, or Grace are among the greatest characters ever? The CGI was the only reason Avatar got so overrated. The CGI could of made any film huge, regardless of how bad the plot is. Howard the Duck and Battlefield Earth would of been very huge if they had Avatar level CGI before Avatar. Avatar was the most overrated film 10 years ago, but the hype that surrounded Avatar had already died down. It's probably because nowadays, even terrible movies can have major CGI.
This is a movie you have to see in 3D. It's just lost without it. The non-3D (let us call it flat) version of the movie just lacks a lot of the visual thrill of the 3D version, and if you only saw the flat version it would be easy to think this movie overrated. My only objection to the movie was the blatant rip-off of the artwork of Roger Dean. Absolutely no credit given to him, just as Cameron did to H.R. Giger in Aliens, yet those familiar with Roger Dean's artwork will recognize it immediately in this movie.
Avatar is one of the most overrated movies ever with an unoriginal plot and really annoying and boring characters. Critics only really praised the film because the impressive visuals that overshadowed their judgement of the rest of the movie. The message the film sends is so clichéd and it was brought up by something really stupid that the humans did to Earth so that they can just attack other innocent beings throughout the galaxy to get what they want. The film also relies heavily on CGI making the Na'vi not look so very good in appearance and the action scenes were not very good, especially the battle at the end which was resolved poorly.
Start with Kate Winslet's faux California accent in a character who should have sounded barely different from a London socialite. Next, accept for a moment that a cosseted aristocrat of 1912 was a secret sex fiend (entirely plausible). Would she not have heretofore been tuned into the gossip of all the horrors that befell easy girls? I'm not saying she wouldn't have jumped a low-born drifter, but not without wildly mixed feelings before, during and especially after.
Now the laws of physics and physiology. The water outside is cold enough to put rime ice on Jack's failing body. But inside the ship, apparently it warms to the temperature of a cool swimming pool. Prolonged dunking only brings hypothermia under an open sky.
Nothing about this movie is original. The story of poor boy-rich girl has been done hundreds of times before, the dialogue is so sappy and cheesy, and the movie is way too long. By the time the ship sinks, I'm rooting for these characters to die. Kinda weird how a movie can win a million Oscars including Best Picture, but not even be NOMINATED for SCREENPLAY? there is a good reason why it wasn't nominated for Screenplay, because the screenplay was horrible! The only good thing about this movie was the costumes and set design, it deserved to win for that, nothing else though. The score is bland, the story is bland, the acting is bland, it's just bland. Not deserving of any praise, whatsoever. Yet, Pearl Harbor was panned for these same reasons, yet Titanic gets showered with awards despite being on the same level of blandness.
I liked this movie but aside from the two main characters, all of them are just hateable. There's this unnecessary villain who framed Jack for robbery and trapped him in the titanic which results them (Jack and Rose) to get trapped in the Titanic. Also, wanna know who's the most hateable characters in the movie? The entire crew of the movie! These bastards are the reason why half of the people had to die. First off, they let the women and children go and then trap some people on the hallways. We all understand that people die during the faithful day of the titanic sank. But there should be a better explanation on why people died, not because the crew refused to pick up the people who are trapped in the water at first sight. This isn't a bad movie and it did hit me in an emotional level, but it's the unnecessary sub-plot involving a villain that ruined this movie from unleashing its full potential.
This should be number 1. Its story just adds something that never really happened to a very sad event. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, or and war film, is sadder. A few thousand people died in the Titanic. Millions of people died in wars, and while I do stay away from war movies for being too depressing, they are still historically accurate. So stop saying this is the saddest movie ever when Schindler's List, The Green Mile, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, and the Shawshank Redemption exist.
I generally didn't like Frozen. Me and my parents were the only ones in the whole cinema when we watched it, it had a very bland setting and all the characters weren't very entertaining. At first I thought it was going to be good because it was already released in other countries, they said it was a good movie at first. I liked it up into I realised how lame it was. What was I thinking when I liked it? I don't even want to mention the annoying fanbase. They throw tantrums at anyone who doesn't like Frozen, they get mad if you don't like the same things that they do. It's disgusting. It's like minions all over again.
Frozen is basically the "Call of Duty" of movies.
I mean, this film was loved and worshiped by so many people in a period of time, then suddenly a massive group of haters showed up and either side won't shut up ever since. This comparison is because similarly, the Call of Duty series also experienced a megaton of fanboy worship and blatant hate.
My conclusion is this; Frozen is overrated, but also overhated at the same time, like Call of Duty. It does have its legitimate praise, though I do think it has its problems and I think the film could have been better personally.
Frozen is like The Last Jedi. It subverts everything you love about a Disney movie and flushes it down the toilet. The songs feel like a sugar coated candy cane and the characters are bland and can be summed up in a few words. Elsa: Antihero. Anna: Annoying. Hans: Bland. Kristoff: Gay. Olaf: Idiotic. Overall, it just makes you want to go home turn on the Lion King, and get some earmuffs before you head to the frozen segments of Disneyland, because believe me every girl is belting out Let It Go and you wish they had stuck with Maelstrom. Suck a disgrace.
Why is Deadpool on this list? That movie was FANTASTIC! Frozen was just an example of a Disney failure. Awful movie. I couldn't think of one good thing to say about it. Soke people might say "It's a good movie. You just don't like it because it's popular". That is totally untrue and here are a few reasons why:
1) The songs weren't well written in the slightest nor did they sound good.
2) The plot twist was fairly predictable.
3) Olaf and Sven didn't do anything for the movie. Olaf wasn't funny and Sven didn't do anything.
4) A princess born with freezing powers? Don't tell me that isn't stupid.
5) What kind of cruel, awful parents lock their child in a room for years? That's abuse!
6) Nothing about this movie was funny. It was really cringy.
7) The story was not good.
8) Anna and Elsa's parents dying was not original at all.
9) Hans was obnoxious.
10) Everything that happened to them seemed so convenient.
I loved Black Panther. I also love what the movie did, and continues to do, for the Black community. It will always be legendary for that. I also loved the movie's villain. But… I feel like we never really got a sense of who Black Panther was. When you consider the other Marvel character intro movies, we got a lot better background stories into who they were.
I think a lot of people forget that it's not top ten worst movies but simply overrated. Black Panther was hyped up so much for me, to the point that watching it felt like a letdown. I still enjoyed the movie it just wasn't AS good and some other marvel movies
People were called racist for not liking this movie. If most people either hate a movie or think that it's overrated, the main characters being black won't be the reason. If someone wasn't going to like a movie because of the ethnicity of the main characters, then they wouldn't watch the movie at all. Also, wouldn't it be a different form of racism to praise a movie because the main characters are black? That would be overrating the film.
This film is good. It was enjoyable. But not $1 Billion box office, most critically successful MCU film, Golden Globe nominated, Oscar buzz good. Seriously, this is the Marvel movie that gets all that praise? The two films that came between it (Thor Ragnorok and Avengers Infinity War) were both much better. And honestly, like with Get Out, this film wouldn't have done anywhere near as well as is did if it wasn't for the representation. But the soundtrack and costumes were good.
The Lion King is undoubtedly a great animation, but I do think it's overrated compared to some other Disney animations which are less revered than this one, but just as good.
First and foremost, this movie is heavily influenced by Bambi, yet Bambi is nowhere near as acclaimed as this movie. I just watched Bambi(1942) for the fist time last week, and I was amazed by how much influence that movie had on the Lion King, specially the ending, but I don't see people citing Bambi as the greatest Disney animation of all time, even though it's just as good as The Lion King.
Also, if we compare The Lion King to some other Disney animations like Snow White, Pinocchio and Aladdin, it could be argued that those movies are just as good, if not better than The Lion King.
Don't get me wrong, I love The Lion King, but I just think it gets way too much praise, while some other Disney movies are very underrated compared to this one. I mean, TLK has a 8.5/10 rating on IMDB, while ...more
Okay, I'll be honest, I never watched it as a kid. The first time I did was during my mid-teen years, during a point where I was starting to get into media entertainment more deeper than my earlier ages. The Lion King unfortunately didn't impress me that much, compared to other animated films I found superior, especially Toy Story and Up.
To me, The Lion King is the most overrated animated film out there. Yes, it has standout moments and there are things I could genuinely praise, such as the score, the film's scope and Scar. The songs were a hit-and-miss for me ("Circle of Life" is epic and I could listen to that any day, and then I heavily despise "I Just Can't Wait to be King"). Also, Simba is a pretty bland protagonist, which is a shame, considering other characters, such as Scar, Timon and Pumbaa have more interesting personalities than him.
The film as a whole was pretty alright, I'd say, at parts a bit too goofy for my taste, but that's opinion.
Smaller problems would be that it seemed pretty weird to me how Simba would sing a fun song about how he wants his dad to die. Also I couldn't really buy the whole "Scar is a bad ruler" thing because the movie made it look like there just happened to be a drought and people blamed it on him.
What really bothers me that I can't comprehend what it wants to tell me.
Be nice to everyone except hyienas because yes?
Your birth determines who you'll be in life and there's no way of having an impact on your destiny on your own?
If you're stronger than others you can take everything you want and they'll just have to live with it?
I don't get it. Who thought of this? The movie basically promotes fascism. If that were intentional it would be an ethical problem, but I'll assume it wasn't, this way it's bad writing.
All the jokes in it were lazy and the plot was weird. Other Disney classics are beautiful and classy and cute and teach kids kindness or bravery or optimism and in this film, the plot is really dark as it was based on Hamlet and the characters where not strong or original. I love Disney but this film is overrated.
Anyone who thinks that Twilight is more overrated than this should (Insert Disturbing Content Here) That movie is actually underrated compared to this in fact Twilight is underrated because it is hated so much. Heath's performance is fine but it isn't Joker like, Jack Nicholson made a better Joker. Christian Bale's growls are unbearable. The movie has a dull atmosphere and takes itself too seriously. Burton's Batman was dark but it was fun. This is just kinda boring. The Dark Knight is a fine film but best superhero movie ever, that is just exaggerated. The best superhero movie is and always be The Avengers.
The irony of this film is that it received so much hype for things that it wasn't: Dark, gritty, unpredictable, intellectual, realistic, ground breaking, philosophical, a work of art. What were the fans of this movie on when they saw this movie? People that claim this is a dark superhero movie had clearly never seen The Crow, Sin City, the Blade films, nor The Punisher. Due to those films alone, this film was not ground breaking. The film was not unpredictable nor intellectual, which was why the Jokster survived throughout the movie, getting away with much more than he should have. The many stupid moments made this film too comical to be gritty. Plus, the Jokster's pseudo-philosophy made the film come off as more stupid. I can't believe Heath Ledger won an Oscar for that role. What's even worse was that Ledger put too much energy into a villain that would of been killed quickly without plot armor. This overrated movie played a role in a actor's death. This movie is a work of ...more
I'm not gonna lie... this is a good comic book movie in my opinion. It's just good. Heath Ledger's performance is amazing, but don't think it's Oscar worthy (I just respect the fact that he put so much effort), the action sequences are a tad better than "Batman begins" and in many respects, it's a relatively fun movie to watch. However, there are some really big issues (in my opinion) that I think a lot of people ignore because of the film's hype and only. For example, Bruce Wayne is not as interesting as he was in "Batman begins". I just didn't feel that much about him and I feel that this is due to the fact that the writers focused much more on Joker's character than they should've had. And the same goes for everyone else in the movie. From Lucious Fox, to Rachel Daws, to Harvey Dent etc., all the characters felt kinda bland to me. Also, Maggie Gyllenhaal's performance as Rachel Daws was just terrible. She was just kind of a role model than an actual character and could've given a ...more
A lame movie that's only popular because of batman and Nolan fanboys, batman fanboys will admit their are bad batman films but their are so many of these fans that they get overhyped anyway, Nolan fanboys will just call anything Christofer Nolan makes a masterpiece, he could literally make a movie about the Cheetos guy sitting on a couch for an hour watching T.V. and Nolan fanboys will still call it a masterpiece, look fanboys, I think this is a terrible movie, but don't just get mad about it because everyone has an opinion, and just remember, whatever you think about any movie, there are always people out there who's opinion about the movie is the complete opposite of yours, and for this movie I am one of those people
This is the most absolutely horrendously STUPID film I've ever seen in my life! The director has as much talent as a leech with a hot rock in its face. He can't tell whether anyone is following a script, which must have been written in the alien language of Zyxxyzzy before being poorly translated into a dialect that they didn't understand. The acting itself is all very basic and uninspired; not putting a thought into how serious or silly it sounded, making every second of this film more dull than Vertigo. Everything about this film lacks any sense of quality, and that's why I loathe it to infinity.
I love this movie. But when you have this win Best Picture over Pulp Fiction, that's when I cross the line. While I love Forrest Gump more than Quentin Tarantino's magnum opus, Pulp Fiction is clearly the much better film. But nonetheless, I think this film gets enough praise and I still love it to this day.
The movie in and of itself is rather boring, there was nothing spectacular about it, but there was nothing horrendous about it. What makes this painfully overrated is the fact that it swept the 1995 academy awards, robbing the Oscars from pure perfect films like Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction.
The movie itself is bad enough as it is, but the fact that it beat spectacular films, such as Pulp Fiction and Shawshank, at the Oscars, and is remembered as one of the best movies of all time is mind boggling, and ultimately makes it one of the worst movies of all time.
Outstanding performances, awesome use of colors and lightning but...boring as hell. Showtunes sounding like outdated forties / fifties musicals, dancing that tries to look ( and not succeeded ) like a Fred Astaire / Ginger Rogers movie. In my opinion, a movie that was not oscar-worthy.
The plot of this film moves too slowly to hold any attention. It gets to the point of, ok guys just get to the sex already. It's like waiting for the sex scene that never comes. I'm assuming it was to boring to watch till the end. Thank goodness it didn't win the Oscar.
On my first viewing I thought it was amazing. On my second viewing...was kinda boring. The flashy spectacle and melodramatic relationship between Mia and Sebastian only were made for a one time view I guess. A wanna be "Singing in the rain" (But kinda nice try thou) The visuals, music and cast are splendid. As for the pacing and memorable elements. Not really, by moments it seemed like the film was of "art cinema" genre cause it lost me a couple times during the 1st half. They just rushed into the dancing bits and music-romantic moments the whole first half and they neglected the element of relatability and connection (this by not having a great script that matches the visuals and music). In short the movie was ok. But is, all in, a lot of noise and little substance. The ending was really good thou. But still, the development into getting there felt (and was) really slobby. Overrated indeed.
Can't believe the critics gave this movie a higher rating than Hidden Figures.
This is one list where Star Wars should be at #1. I get why Avatar, Forrest Gump, and Twilight are high on this list, but the love toward those movies is very different from Star Wars. Most of Twilight's extreme love had gone out the door, most of Forrest Gump's love was from the many big actions of a mentally challenged character, and there wasn't much love around Avatar outside of the special effects. There's ridiculous love and praise toward Luke, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Kenobi, and several other major Star Wars characters, except Jar Jar Binks. Who gives a bunch of praise to Neytiri or Jake Sully? Star Wars is the most overrated movie and series EVER.
It is sickening that this overrated pile of a series is treated like it's the best thing ever made when it isn't. I think the only franchise that had received even more stupid, ridiculous hype is that stupid, overrated video series, call of duty. It wouldn't surprise me if much of the fandom of star wars and call of duty are the same. Both dumb franchises have war, a bunch of explosions, overrated weapons, overrated soldier characters, and they both get brought up too much in circumstances that have nothing to do with either stupid series. Both franchises are like cancer, which should also go away, but can't. Now that wouldn't mean that the fandom of both franchises is completely the same, since many call of duty fans mainly adore call of duty because it's very violent. Dumb costumes, over-used catchphrases, an overrated theme song, and those reasons I mentioned earlier is why star wars is the most overrated movie series ever. At least the makers of star wars doesn't release an entry ...more
Finding someone else who doesn't like Star Wars is one of the most difficult things I've ever tried, it's like half the Earth loves Star Wars, and I never understood why, it's really lame, the whole I am your father thing wasn't as cool to me as everyone claimed it is, they were like "oh my god that's one of the best movie twists ever! " But honestly it wasn't that cool to me, and this movie at times is REALLY boring, even the action wasn't that interesting, and all the space Battles weren't cool either mostly because the effects are REALLY dated, also why do all the fans think these movies are perfect? Literally everyone I talk to who says Star Wars is awesome says the original trilogy was completely flawless, did they just choose to ignore any problems the movies had? I just don't like Star Wars and maybe one day I'll finally meet someone who agrees with me
It's a good movie. But people call this flawless and the greatest movie of all time. For the record, not every movie is perfect. Frozen has its flaws (the villain? ), but it's still a great movie. This one is treated like God made it. But if Lucas didn't make this, then where would special effects be now? This is good, but not as good as everyone says. You have to understand that it's been almost forty years since this movie was released, and there are better movies out there. The Force Awakens was much cooler than this, although it felt the same as this one.
It deserves to be number 1 for an overrated movies or rather a worthless, and trash movies of all time. It's basically a teenage girl having a problem on her suitors on who she will pick plus they changed the view of what the vampires and werewolves really are. In my childhood I usually feared this kind of creatures because they are very scary and they are portrayed as a ferocious monsters until thisty movie showed up and it ruin everything. Kudos Stephanie Meyer for adding a worthless novel this century has.
All this movie had was female oriented smut, and the biggest cliche that all females want to happen, to have all their troubles taken away by a muscular man. It's ironic that girls get mad at boys for wanting a girl who is hot, when they just want a guy that muscular and handsome. These movies were the number 1 thing me and all boys across the world dreaded every year they came out, if they remake twilight and 5 more of these movies come out, I will blow my brains out
1. Underrated on the internet.
2. Werewolves are supposed to be humans that shape-shift into a wolf and guess what they are related to a dog and the werewolves are more werewolf than the vampires. Sorry that they aren't Count Dracula.
3.Female stuff is attacked. More and more.
I watched The Raggy Dolls when I was little (sadly only 5 episodes, on a video tape. Never shown re-runs in the 1990s) Maybe The Twilight Vampires should be thrown into the reject bin ahahaahaha.
Vampires made imperfectly.
Why are girls obsessed with movies about these dudes that they think are attractive fall in love with some girl? Like, wouldn't that make them angrier? Cause I think all the girls who watch these movies would much rather want to marry the dudes in these movies themselves instead of watching some random chick marry them
I read the book before watching the movie and I can say I was very disappointed. The characters were bland and uninteresting, Jennifer Lawrence, although she is a brilliant actress, was like a statue in this movie, barely showing emotion and making a character who is very likeable in the books, a bland and boring character that could've been killed off and I wouldn't have cared. The way the movie went about explaining certain aspects could've been done a lot better (e.g. show don't tell) the characters were uninteresting robots that I didn't care at all for. The sequels are a lot better however, I feel like Francis Lawrence did a much better job.
Such shaky camera and the characters are dull, stiff, and simple. I mean Katniss is very boring and has no personality it drives me crazy. The plot is very ridiculous and has lots of holes, it is super predictable and it is just not very interesting, Plus all the good characters die such as rue, cinna, finnick, and prim! Peeta is such a burden, he is a sissy and he needed katniss to save his ass. This movie is so bland it's just a girl with a bow and arrow who survived poverty and all of a sudden become super special, then saves the day! Such a cliche dystopian novel. Very Pathetic.
My general sentiment after seeing this movie was, "who cares? " I could not find one original thought or plot point in the entire film. What did this story about a dystopian society bring to the table that each and every other book or movie with a similar premise has not already covered? I found the characters mostly stiff and one-dimensional, so it wasn't even engrossing on a personal level. I was completely shocked to find out how well-repected this series is.
No action in the first half, seldom action in the second half (like 30 seconds of action every dozen minutes or so), and the action wasn't even good. The fighting was mild, the camera was too shaky, and most of the fighting was off-screen. If you're going to make a movie about teens killing each other, maybe you can have you can have for than five minutes on-screen of teens killing each other.
I'm not a fan of old movies.
Creepy and strange!
I honestly just can't understand people's thoughts here.
As a Star Wars fan, I've found episode 5 one of the worst films of the trilogy, mostly due to a lack of memorable moments, sloppy lightsaber fights, and boring battles.
The movie may have been good back when it came out in 1980, but nowadays I can't help to notice how badly it has aged. The special effects are mediocre, the film's storyline feels dated, etc...
Putting all this aside, I don't discourage anyone from watching the film, it may appeal to you but surely doesn't to me.
Star Wars is the most overrated media franchise of all time (This includes Video Games, T.V. Shows, Animation and Films), and this coming from a long-time fan. Honestly, I think there's better Space-Based franchises and better sequels than Episode V. Not saying this is bad at all, in fact this is better than A New Hope, but I honestly don't think its as grand as so many people make it out to be.
Furthermore, the Star Wars franchise has staggered itself several times after the Original Trilogy. While I personally like the Prequels, I know they're flawed in many ways. The Sequel Trilogy is honestly mediocre. And in a very unpopular opinion, I prefer the tie-in materials, mostly from the Expanded Universe over any of the films.
Why are people so dumb. The movie had not as impressive special effects, it reminded me I was watching a movie. The acting wasn't that good, and made me yawn now or then. The movie was just 2 hours and 4 minutes of stufff happening instead of an emotinal rolar coaster. And most importantly, its spoiled as heck. The No scene was so predictable because it was spoiled by everything. Han turning to stone was preditable because of how everyhting spoils it. Its litterly the most predictable film ever.
The old Star Wars movies are terrible and boring. Terrible acting, cheesy crap like soldiers that can't shoot despite having an advance armor which doesn't protect them from anything. Bad choreography and terrible use of puppets. Terrible cheesy deaths for characters and lame character names.
This movie has scenes that don't make any sense and are there because Peele wanted to show the weirdness. But instead it's just confusing.
You knew the '' surprising plot twist'' after 5 minutes. We've seen that story many times before.
Good but overrated.
Haven't seen it
There's really no reason to like this movie. It's dull, bland, boring, and usually unfunny. I almost slept through this movie, something I don't do often in comedies! The characters are total idiots, the acting is terrible, the story is completely stupid, and the movie is filmed in the worst place possible. Any movie filmed in the country is boring in my experience! Anyway, don't watch this movie, because it truly is overrated.
I cannot sit through this movie to save my life! It is the most boring and annoying ass of a movie. I can't stand this punk, every time he is on screen I want to beat the hell out of him. The characters piss me off and the story is absolutely horrible and even the ending at the talent show is nothing amazing.
This movie is crap, plain and simple!
The thing with this movie is that it has a certain humor that only certain people will find funny. I honestly found it hilarious. There's nothing wrong with hating it, you just can't say the movie is bad.
I agree, I heard how funny this movie was and everyone I knew kept on quoting it so I decided I HAD to watch it, so when I finally did, I was so disappointed. the movie seemed really dull and not funny and I barely chuckled.
I only see the horror in the ending. The found-footage genre has to go. Yes, films like REC are good found-footage horror, but this is just bland. The end could do with some red eyes and a demonic smile in the background, then a jumpscare and then a static with screams in the background. May be a little cliche, but I find it ok.
SO STUPID! Found footage type of movies are the most annoying things ever! They try to make it realistic when actually it is just the most stressful and hardest thing to watch. This movie is the worst
Was better on the big screen this movie totally sucked its basically a home movie were nothing interesting happens.
The atmosphere was okay, but everything else just screams "college project".
Let's face it, the sequel is ripping off the first. They make you like only toothless, that's why all the other dragons are ugly and fat.
Toothless is cute, but Shrek and especially Kung Fu Panda are better franchises. By far.
This movie is just okay but it is not the best movie I have ever seen nor the worst.
Cliche after cliche. Everything is so predictable and boring!
This movie is mostly overhyped because of the series that it's part of. There are dinosaur movies on the syfy channel that are marvelous compared to this junk of a movie. If this film wasn't part of the jurassic park series, nor had the word JURASSIC in its title, most of the fans of this stupid movie wouldn't care for it.
This film should be called Jurassic Garbage. Walking with Dinosaurs 3D is better than this overrated piece of Jurassic Garbage. Many of the fans of this movie must be on dope.
What? I'm confused... What is going on... what. It's not near bad. Not amazing though
The movie is okay
Is there any film that's regarded more as being something that's intelligent or complex when it isn't? It's much better than the sequels, but that's not saying much, since the sequels felt more like eye candy to cgi fanatics than a story that tried to come off as complex and intelligent. The latest pseudo-intellectual entry to this series showed that people that died outside of the Matrix can get brought back to life. I guess that means that any dead human in the series, not just the one, can come back now, because let's not have any movie series end at this point.
This movie is the most overrated in history, and I'm gonna tell you why. Blade did the bullet dodging, marble pillars with armed men behind them, trench coats and sunglasses one year before the matrix. The acting in the matrix sucks, the plot is idiotic, and it tries so hard to be smart but isn't. But, I will give it this, the special effects are decent. Not great, but they stand the test of time. The best part of the whole movie was when Keanu Reeves does Bruce Lee's signature nose flick. The reason I say Keanu Reeves is because it was unscripted. So, I've listed out the reasons I hate the Matrix. So you can't pass me off as unintelligent because I have my reasons.
The only thing going for this movie is the CGI effects that were ahead of it's time. Other than that: the acting is crap, the story is boring, it's been parodied and copied so many times it ruins it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, there's a huge lack of character development, and the monotony from the aforementioned acting is taken straight out of an M. Night Shyamalan movie.
I love this movie for its esthetics only. Worth a 10 stars just for them. The look of the film. The clothes. The original and outstanding action scenes. The genius of the visual effects. This movie was groundbreaking, that's why it copied so many time but always to a lesser degree than the original. I still gave no idea what it's about but the visual make it a classic.
All of these have such slow build up. The commercials always promise that, "the last 15 minutes will scar you for life." It's true because I'm scarred for wasting my money.
I hate all of these movies. All of them.
Boring and a lot of horror movie cliches.
Overrated all off them
This nearly destroyed the Franchise.
A lot of Problems with this movie have been overused. The Main problem is that they aren't the worst things this movie has done.
My problem with Rey doing things like wielding a lightsaber successfully against Kylo Ren and using a Mind trick after hearing about the force, is that these things are literally the only things that her character is there for. She has no real steady Character Development in the entire movie.
The "Rehash of a new hope argument", while valid, has two problems: 1) it's overused, and 2) It isn't nearly as much of a problem as the terrible writing and incoherent plot.
This comment might sound narrow minded but I am honestly not a huge fan of most of the Star Wars movies and shows outside the original trilogy. Not all of it is bad I'm just not a huge fan of most of it.
SCREW STAR WARS.
I am SO SICK of this franchise of movies. This series should've just stayed as a trilogy and they could've moved on with their lives. But then from Phantom Menace onwards, it was complete garbage. Fight me all you want, but these movies have a lack of character development, poor and unoriginal writing, and only exist so the stupid masses will pay them money as they obsess over the action and whatnot.
I think this movie was more about the hype than the movie itself. Film wasn't bad but it's pretty mediocre and only designed to be watched when everyone is crazy about it. I think JJ knew that this movie will get overrated thanks to the hype so he made the movie specifically for people with "hypes".
I have to heavily disagree with moth critics on this one. Gravity is one of the most boring films I've ever seen, which is a real shame as I wanted to see what made this film so attention-grabbing.
Sandra Bullock honestly isn't that good; most of the film consists of her thumping around in space whilst mumbling nonsense and screaming for life throughout the majority of the film's run-time. George Clooney could have provided more depth, but nope, he's offed about halfway through anyway. I know these two are competent actors, and that disappoints me rather more.
Not only do I think this movie is overrated, but it's also one of my least favorite movies of all time. Almost nothing happened. There was no character development, innovation, emotion or humor. Its visuals were good but not enough to save it.
Watching Gravity is the equivalent of watching fireworks. It's cool, but ultimately I don't want to watch two hours worth of it.
Don't believe the comments of people who say that the critics who found this film overrated, boring and bad in acting all were wrong! They were right ( for once ). This movie is boring. Sandra Bullock is very bad ( she is screaming all the time and it sounds like she has an orgasm instead of fear ) and the special " action " effects are so predictable that it gives no " viewers effect " at all in matter of being surprised.
I do not get the praise behind this film at all. The big issue with Gravity is that it felt like they spent most of the production into the CGI and special effects and that's it. While I do think George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are great actors, this is probably one of their worst performances I have seen from both actors.
Get ready for my rant, I guess: Personally, I'm so sick of Marvel. I got so tired of hearing about this movie and while I wasn't surprised, frustrated when I heard this movie was being put back in theatres. Why? Why, how, WHY was it three HOURS?! That's as long as the Hobbit, which is not good at all! I never found ANY Marvel movie I enjoyed really, except the first one slightly. It gave me a migraine to k ow that this movie exists, watching the trailers, reading the comments, watching the reviews...I'm sorry, but this movie and the whole Marvel series needs to end. Remember, this is just my opinion, and I respect your opinion. Thank you.
Slow and boring. The first half is mostly unnecessary scenes. Captain Marvel isn't in it as much as I expected her to be and can take on Thanos by herself without every other female character posing with her mid-battle. Only reason I could understand their rules of time travel was because I've watched the episode of the Flash where Wells explains Flashpoint. They also broke their own rules of time travel with the old Steve Rogers scene. People are basically just saying it's brilliant because it's an MCU film.
How many more villains are going to keep destroying planets or galaxies in this overrated series? It's more annoying in The Avengers series than it is in the Dragon Ball series. Villains doing those things in either series don't seem to mean much, since the heroes could just use the powerful macguffins to bring everyone and everything back. Given that fact, no good character that died is going to stay dead.
Infinity War was brilliant. Endgame tho... They clearly lost their balls on this one. Just fan service, that's it. IW's ending was fantastic, but of course, the good guys had to win. Plus, the final battle isn't even well staged.
I don't like calling things "overrated". So I will just say that I personally don't like this movie as much as most people. Watched it three times and I still don't get the hype. The story felt rushed and didn't draw me in. I couldn't get behind the narrative of the movie. Maximus is a bland character, which made it really hard to sympathise with him. And Russell Crowe had better roles in his life. The only aspect that really stood out to me was Joaquin Phoenix as Commodus, it's a shame that Crowe got an Oscar for this movie but he didn't. All in all Gladiator is an enjoyable little action flick, but not the timeless classic it's supposed to be.
The lighting in this movie is unbearable and it makes everything look fake. Did they render Rome in microsoft paint? Generally the movie just feels incomplete and lackluster.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Russell shouldn't play victims. He is better off playing villains and leaders. Give me Master and Commander any day.
Overrated. Russel was miscast.
People didn't brag nearly as much about that star wars story, which is surprising since the film had the words 'star wars' in its title, and many fans of star wars would praise a film just for that reason. Maybe a number of fans of that series are starting to come to their senses. Anyway, the third avengers film was given major popstar-level praise from its fans. Fans were treating the film like it was their reason for living. It is officially the most overrated film of 2018. At least it's better than those twilight films.
I am so sick of all of those Avengers movies! Why can't we have a Salad Fingers movie? Or a Danganronpa movie? Hell even another MLP movie?! Why 21 Avengers movies?! Salad Fingers, Danganronpa, and MLP are far better than Avengers. I love Stan Lee, but the movies are too annoying. I'd rather stick to the old animated Avengers.
This is the whole reason I am on this list, I saw it my siblings all say it is the best thing ever, I think it is ok, but not better than the Captain America civil war movie. Look at the list top ten best movies of all time, IT IS RANKED 12 FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!
It's not surprising that this film got on the list less than 5 days after the film came out in theaters.
