Top Ten Most Overrated Movies Based On Books


The Top Ten

1 Twilight

I have a friend who likes the books (by the way, BURN THEM WITH FIRE TOO) and even she agrees the movies suck.

Twilight is awful in every way. How you can compare this to anything above bad is beyond me.

A moody, entitled girl with no emotions (Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart) goes to a rainy town where she meets a pervert vampire (Robert Pattison, playing Edward) and a stupid wherewolf who takes his shirt off a lot in order to attract teenage girls (Jacob Black, being played by Taylor Laughtner. Nothing special - ToptenPizza

2 The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Even more nauseating than the first one. - ToptenPizza

Would not cause disgust, boredom only

3 Frozen

It was based off the snow queen, and it wasn't horrible but after a while it got boring, but the fanbase kept pushing and pushing it, until it became overrated. The only reason people like it is because the lack of "prince saves princess". - ToptenPizza

This should be like number 1! A year or more has past and people are still crazy about it. - SamuiNeko

I hated this movie so much

This should go to number 2. - Tux

4 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 V 2 Comments
5 I Know What You Did Last Summer

4 kids slashing each other! How original! Worst slasher film ever. - ToptenPizza

6 Alice In Wonderland
7 How the Grinch Stole Christmas

A good Christmas tale, but other than that it's pretty bland. - ToptenPizza

Sure, Jim Carrey has some funny lines in there, but the voice is annoying,the whos are terrifying, they extend the run time while trying to keep the moral intact, which is very hard to do, so anyone short of Disney could barely do it. If you have any real taste, just watch the original 26 minute T.V. special.Thatone was well-animated, kept the moral intact, had a great song in it, and was overall a better use of your Christmas time.

8 Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

I hate Twilight, but the movies do have an excuse because the books are terrible... Being a staunch Percy Jackson fan, this movie made me want to jump from my balcony

I wonder if they had a cheap budget for this film because it absolutely sucked.

I hated that they stopped the movies before Nico Di Angelo and the Romans...then it would been better

9 The Fault In Our Stars

I don't see anything wrong with this one. - RockFashionista
