Most Overrated Movie Series


The Top Ten

1 Star Wars

The newer Star Wars movies in particular are really overrated, The Force Awakens and Rogue One are the finest examples. As for The Last Jedi, it luckily got bashing (though still praise). Overall I think Disney should just cancel Star Wars, they have ruined it enough! Star Wars was good until Disney arrived! No hope for Episode IX. - darthvadern

The fact that people make a big deal about these movies and think they are beyond criticism - Dvafan2

Way to overrated

Uhhh... I don't think a lot of people would agree with this one. - BKAllmighty

4 Despicable Me

One word minions - Dvafan2

Yeah, things went south with 2015's 'Minions'. Too much of a good thing. - BKAllmighty

5 Transformers

People still watch these I watch the last knight and was confused - Dvafan2

6 The Dark Knight

Well, I understand that 'The Dark Knight Rises' isn't the perfect ending that everyone hoped for but 'Batman Begins' and 'The Dark Knight' are still terrific. - BKAllmighty

Not as perfect as people say it is - Dvafan2

Should be number 1.

7 Finding Nemo/Dory

14 Fifty Shades of Grey
15 Jurassic Park
16 The Hangover
17 Lord of the Rings Series
18 Harry Potter

I like Harry Potter but it should be number 1 - Gangem

Deserves to be on no. 1

Critics somehow LOVE these movies despite them being the equivalent of watching paint dry.
