Most Overrated MoviesMany won't agree at first I know this. But watch one of these films again and think.
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.
I am not saying that Avatar was a bad movie. I just do not understand how a live-action version of Ferngully (let's be honest, that is what it is) can garner such acclaim and become the biggest most-successful film of all time. It was entertaining. That is as far as I would go. I find the overabundence of CGI a little distracting and the storyline common. Why was this nominated for so many awards while truly brilliant and challenging and original films were overlooked?
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.
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.
I hate to say it, but while the lion king is a decent movie it's extremely overrated. Not even a super good movie. It had quite a few flaws and it's shocking just how high it was on the top ten movies list
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 to slow 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.
I believe it is way OVERHATED on this site! I personally loved it and if you ask why read my post!
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.
Just another Marvel superhero movie. I never understood why it stands out and is considered to be an award winning masterpiece.
I loved Black Panther and especially the social themes in it. I thought the acting was solid, the culture it showed was beautiful, and the villain is better than most Marvel movies.
That being said, a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes? Really? I loved what the movie was and what it stood for, but this is a Marvel movie. It was a huge stride in the right direction for representation, but outside of its social implications, it's not Oscar-worthy. It's simply a far-above-average Marvel movie
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.
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.
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.
Forrest Gump is so extremely overrated. It's decent, yes, and I can appreciate it for being a good movie, but it's honestly boring and it's extraordinary that it's number one on the best movies of all time list
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.
The reason why I love Star Wars, is because of the prequels, and TV shows. But the sequels in my opinion were horrible. It is highly overatted, and it is so rare to find somebody to actully not like it. The scenes seem so old, and the backround always seem so fake. The scenes barley have any msuic, but who cares, because they aren't heartfelt or emotinol at all. The fight scenes are not as good because they were so old. And the scene with the I am your father thing, is so spoiled worldwide, that a litteral 3 year ols knows it without watching the movie, or even not hearing about it.
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.
This movie is classic! Shame on whoever put it here! And while the special effects aren't perfect when viewed today, they look great for a 77-year-old movie!
Watch this movie, play " Pipers at the gate of dawn " by Pink Floyd and smoke a certain substance and you will be the happiest person.
I love this movie! It was funny, sad, and scary at the same time. But we are all entitled to our own opinion.
What?!? This is a classic!
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
Lmao this is not overrated. Most horror movies, even those that have been rated well, have been very cliche and cringy. This is one of the most incredible suspense/horror films, created by one of the most genius directors, Jordan Peele. There were so many key details and it's fun to go watch videos on YouTube explaining hidden meanings...not overrated at all.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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".
People like this movie because it has fantastic animation, likable characters, A good message, and, let's face it, Toothless is adorable.
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.
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
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.
This is a really great movie, and is in my top 20 movies of all time. But boy its overatted. The fact that its on the top 3 in the best movies list, is sickening, and even more is that it's the 4th best movie, ranked by imbd I blieve, which is a major website that ranks movies. Whats so special about this? People just say that "Oh it's so dark!" Litterly bruh, the darkness is the same as Batman Begins, and whi cares about the darkness. Its not as emotinal or thrilling as other movies such as avengers endgame and infinity war. It doesn't make sense why this is loved so much! Bruh.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
It starts off like a bad student film, doesn't know what to do with the middle and just explodes at the end. Technically the last 25 minutes were extremely well done but we needed the previous hour to engage with the character and we just didn't have any of the character ark that we needed. As a result how are we supposed to care about these people. Maybe you did but I didn't.
Best thing about this film was Clint Mansell's score.
The most overrated drug-movie of all time. It's an ok film but it's so exagerated in every aspect of drug - taking. A example is the mother who takes dietpills of the amphetaminetype and goes bananas. It's like she is overdosing of methamphetamine.
And even the latter don't give such effects like she's showing in the clinic. A dopamine antagonist and some benzodiazepines would immediately stop the exagerated effects that are shown in this movie. The heroin effects are also way over the top. Can't they seek help in a methadon program? Or get some valiums to stop the withdrawn for a moment? Even alcohol works sometimes at this moments. My point is that everything in this movie is exagerated and not very realistic. It's just a moral seeking movie and too overrated to be called a top-movie that treats about drugs.
Oh thank you, I am not alone in this. I thought this movie was terribly overrated. Wouldn't even say it was a good movie.
It was made for it's time.
I don't get the hell why would such a crap show could win an Oscar for Best Animated Feature. It was so horrible, the story was a huge mess and the mother daughter relationship was nothing at sense. The characters don't even link to each other and the animation was horrible (seriously Pixar? ). Even the bear scene doesn't make any sense to that
The academy should go right up to Disney and take that Oscar back! This film sucked! Merida, who is supposed to be "brave," came out was whiny and annoying for me. She whines about being a princess, whines about getting married, whines about her mom choosing her fate(she's really not, she wants the best for you,) whines when she gets turned into a bear, etc. If you want a brave princess, go watch Mulan, who isn't whiny and selfish.
Since this movie came out I have been complaining about its lack of luster. First of all, the title is completely misleading. What exactly makes Merida "brave"? I must have missed it when I was forced to watch her be a complete selfish brat for the entire movie.
I hated this movie. Merida is the worst Disney princess ever. She's a whiny spoiled brat... The plot is pretty much "mom and daughter have a bad relenship so daughter turns her mom into a bear" seriously... This movie is crap. We have Beutiful princess like belle and Mulan and then this...?
I can't believe that this movie is still concidered as the greatest movie of all time. I love the work of Orson Welles but this movie is definitively not his best. By far are his movies like for instance " A touch of evil ", " The lady from Shangai " way much better. The latter two movies are even better in camera work and techniques, not to mention the story and the script. Why " Citizen Kane " is so overrated is really beyond me 'cause if you watch all the work that Orson Welles has done then this one is not that great. It's just a good movie that you will watch once or twice, but that's about it. It's certainly not his best and even some non-Orson Welles at that time were better. Too overrated for sure.
Its incredibly boring, with an unlikable main character. During last Summer, I watched as many classic movies as possible, and I was excited to get to this one. I hated it. I usually don't get bored with movies, like 12 Angry Men is one of my favorite movies, and it has little to no action, but Citizen Kane is downright boring. There was not one scene where I was excited, or interested, and I ended up turning it off with 30 minutes left.
I understand why someone thinks that Citizen Kane is overrated, and its because they thought that it was either boring or too praised. The reason why Citizen Kane is considered to be one of the great films ever made is because of its execution. I do agree on this statement, and there are films that I prefer more than this movie since it's my own personal taste that I have in movies.
How the hell is this not number 1? So many people consider this to be the best movie of all time, and it has aged very poorly. What was once revolutionary is now just a movie with basic film techniques, terrible acting (except from Orson Welles), and a plot that is downright BORING.
How anybody compares this to the Godfather is beyond any form of reason.
