Top 10 Most Overrated Theatrical Movies of All TimeWe talked about the best and worst movies released in theaters, now let's talk about the ones that get more praise than they deserve.
The Top Ten
I hate Titanic! I'm not saying it's a god awful film, but it just didn't do anything for me. I don't care about the love story between the two main characters. I think Leonardo DiCaprio is a great actor, but honestly this isn't his best performance. He's had much better performances! A majority of the film is so boring! The movie is over three hours long and nothing interesting happens until the very end when the boat sinks! And even during that climactic part, I don't care that the characters are dying! It's not emotional! I just realized! Rogue One is kind of similar to Titanic! It's a movie with bland characters and an ending that we all saw coming and I don't even care that the characters die! Titanic is a pretty overrated movie. But I'd still rather watch this than those terrible animated Titanic films! - MegaSoulhero
Can't disagree with this at all I mean everyone says this is his best work well go watch the Departed that well make you forget about this film all together. - htoutlaws2012
I love titanic! I'm really sad about the ending but the one thing I would rather say about this movie is...jack didn't have to die!
Personally its just not that amazing, its nowhere near as good or bad as people claim it to be in my opinion - VideoGamefan5
Celine Dion's song (one of the best songs ever made) was better than the actual film...interesting... - DCfnaf
If Emma Watson gets nominated for best actress at the Oscars next year, something is seriously wrong! This was a Razzie worthy performance! I don't know why the keep casting her in movies! I don't hate this film, but I'm aware that a lot of people love it to the point of even saying that it's better than the original. Whenever I hear someone say that, I laugh hysterically. Why would they remake something that didn't need to be remade? This is one of the most unnecessary movies ever! The scenes that were inspired by the original lacked the charm that the original scenes had! Such as when Beast told Belle to leave the west wing, it wasn't as powerful! And as much as I love Evermore, I preferred when the Beast let out a roar in the original because it was more impactful! They also added new scenes that were mostly filler! There are things to like about the film, but there are also things to hate about it! Emma Watson is a terrible actress and a terrible singer! Speaking of people who ...more - MegaSoulhero
Absolutely no need for a remake, if I wanted to I watch it in its original classic format not this Emma Watson crap, now I fear for things like Aladdin, and the Lion King possibilities. - htoutlaws2012
This is overhated and overrated at the same time. It's not great, but how is it worse than movies like "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul"? - DCfnaf
Overhyped like rouge One - Randomator
Jake Paul sucks - PeeledBanana
I'm not defending jake paul but what does that have to do with this movie? - VideoGamefan5
I didn't add this MegaSoulHero, just letting you know. Either way, I do think this is very overrated. The musical numbers were unmemorable and only appeared at like...the beginning of the movie and the very end. Mia was an annoying brat and Sebastian was stupid and couldn't sing. Then there's the stupid as hell story. I have to spoil the ending: Basically some person working on a musical CONVENIENTLY showed up at Mia's play that *ahem* no one was attending *ahem*. She invited her to audition for their play, and when she gets there...they have nothing. I'm not even joking. This moron INVITED HER OVER to audition for something they didn't have. Who wrote this crappy movie? Then they say that they want MIA to come up with a story. So what you're saying is that WRITERS for a musical are asking a RANDOM ACTRESS that they DON'T KNOW to write a story FOR THEM?!?!?!? Oh, and it gets better. Conveniently enough, they actually had a setting for this play: Paris, France. Well oh my lord, Mia's ...more - DCfnaf
I like this movie, but it's overrated. When this came out, people praised it and said it was better than TFA. Yeah! No! It's not! Rogue One is mainly fanservice! They add a bunch of references to appeal to the fanboys! It gets annoying real fast! Even though the CGI can be really awesome at times, the CG on Leia and Tarkin are some of the worst I've seen in recent years! The pacing is very sloppy in the first half! It's just them going from planet to planet! It gets very confusing! The worst part of the movie would have to be the characters! They are so uninteresting! The characters are supposed to be the best part of any Star Wars film! That's what makes the movies worth watching! And when the characters died, I didn't even care! However, one thing that I absolutely loved about this movie was the Darth Vader scene at the end! That was fantastic! That is one of the best scenes in any Star Wars film! This movie is okay, but not something that I would watch over and over again. It's ...more - MegaSoulhero
Very overrated as a matter in fact, then they said Star Wars VII some say they had great distain well here's my distain on Rouge One it is totally useless at the wrong year, and the wrong time. - htoutlaws2012
MegaSoulHero basically summed up my gripes with this movie is his comment, so I'll keep my criticisms brief: The characters are awful, the story is predictable and lazy, there's obvious fanservice involved, and the CGI was poor. Overall a mediocre film and HIGHLY undeserving of its insane praise. - DCfnaf
Trash - VideoGamefan5
Chirrut and K2SO were the only characters I liked - VideoGamefan5
Jennifer Lawrence is the worst actress ever! And that's all you need to know. Oh, you want more? Okay then. When you make a movie adaptation of a book, it tends to be bad. And this was no exception. However, it managed to get good reviews. It has an 84% on Rotten Tomatoes. There is literally nothing in this movie that I would call amazing! Okay, maybe a few things, but for the most part, I was underwhelmed! I never read the books, but I still found the movie to be incredibly predictable! Some of the acting was okay, but as usual, Jennifer Lawrence gives the worst performance out of everyone! When has she ever given a good performance? Never! Jennifer Lawrence sucks and so does this movie! - MegaSoulhero
I was not that huge into the books, but I knew of the story, and I never wanted to see any Hunger Game movies even if its Jennifer Lawrence. - htoutlaws2012
After reading the books, I really looked forward to the movies. Jennifer Lawrence made it suck.
I have never seen this movie. - PeeledBanana
Seriously? This needs to be #1. This is a white boy's fantasy about saving the native Americans. The only "Special" thing about it is that he wowed everyone with 3D Special Effects that weren't worth the extra money people paid to see it that way. It's a ripoff of several other movies, all of which are better than this piece of drek. Can we just postpone the sequels indefinitely?
Rocky Horror Picture Show is the worst musical I've ever seen. I know a lot of people on this website have a strong hatred for La La Land for reasons, but regardless of what you think of that masterpiece, at least it had a story! This movie is just a bunch of random nonsense with cringe-worthy scenes and annoying musical numbers! The only reason why this movie is so popular is because of audience participation! In the original stage production, they made it so that the audience could do things at certain times which makes them part of the show! That sounds fun! As for this movie version, it had the longest theatrical release ever! That's because there were special midnight showings in which people would bring props and dress up in costume and they would dance to the songs! Again, that sounds like it would make the film worth watching despite how bad it is! But I watched this movie all alone on a laptop for a school assignment! And I felt like I was being tortured! Awful movie! - MegaSoulhero
This looks dumb based on that picture. - DCfnaf
Steaming pile of $h! t - PeeledBanana
The Dark Knight should've won - PeeledBanana
The Oscars are rigged! It's so obvious! I mean, why else did Moonlight win an Oscar this year? But the fact that Forrest Gump won while competing against the Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction is a crime! Forrest Gump sucks! I watched in History class when I was in high school, and it was terrible! This movie pretty much teaches people that even if you're not very bright, you can still be successful through luck! People actually tried their hardest and worked very hard to get where they are now! Forrest became famous due to dumb luck! Tom Hanks did a great job for what he was supposed to do since he's always a great actor, but anyone could've played this character! I didn't like this character at all! Very irritating! Clearly I don't like this movie, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't like it. I still don't think this deserves the praise that it gets. - MegaSoulhero
This is very overrated as a movie in general, there are several better movies. Also, THANK YOU for having them exclude Frozen. - DCfnaf
Unfortunately, admin decided to take out the "Excluding Frozen" part of the title - MegaSoulhero
There are way better movies that should be higher than Forrest Gump on the best movies of all time list like Jaws & Goodfellas.
This deserved best picture. - PeeledBanana
No idea how this franchise lasted as long as it did. All of the movies are stupid! They're nothing but car chases with very little story! The car chases aren't even that great! Baby Driver had much better car chases! They felt more real than the ones in this franchise! That's because every single car stunt in Baby Driver was real! It was a much better movie than all of the Fast and Furious movies combined! And yeah, I watched F8 of the Furious, I hated that movie! Every single movie in this franchise feels like the same! Every character is forgettable! Why are there 8 of these movies? And there's gonna be a ninth one! Stop making these movies! They are awful! - MegaSoulhero
Can we kill off the films now there overdone, and need to die off since Paul Walker died. - htoutlaws2012
Watch Baby Driver instead, that actually TELLS A STORY. - DCfnaf
Finally, someone who agrees this is oversaturated - VideoGamefan5
Basically, this entire franchise is terrible. I'm aware people hate the sequels, but for some reason, people seem to really like the first movie. But I'm gonna be honest, I didn't like this movie! I remember watching this movie in a theater when it first came out. I was 9 years old and even back then I hated it! I'm turning 20 in October by the way. Anyway, I remember every kid at my school talking about how good the movie was and I was the only one talking about how terrible it was! Even to this day a lot of people like it! Yes, it's the best one in the franchise, but that's not saying much considering the sequels are absolute garbage! Michael Bay's Transformers movies all feel like the same! Bland characters, weak stories, and an overuse of CGI! It looks like an absolute mess! I've been boycotting these movies after the third one! I started to just wait and watch the movies online to see how bad they are so I won't have to spend money on these terrible movies! Since Michael Bay is ...more - MegaSoulhero
Now hold up the first one was the only one that's acceptable as good while the others are not very good in fact we should of just had the second movie, and that's it not this change cast crap each film. - htoutlaws2012
Ain't no way ain't no how is this movie overrated! This movie is so underrated! The first one was a great film! The second one sucked. The third one was better, and the fourth one was not as good as the third, seriously it didn't deserve all the hate it got! And I haven't seen the fifth one, but I'm hoping for the best
Every movie in this series was honestly awful. - DCfnaf
This was good but the sequels suck - PeeledBanana
"Honey, you mean Hunk-ules". Lines like that are what make me question how Disney ever thought releasing something as stupid as this would be a good idea. This movie is not good. The only thing I like about this movie is the song Go the Distance. But other than that, this movie is terrible! Hercules is a very generic character and a Superman ripoff, Megara is very bland and uninteresting, Phil is very annoying, and Hades I guess is pretty cool. This movie does a very poor job at humor! There was only one joke I laughed at involving Hades, and that was it! The changes they made to the story of Hercules are painful! And what's with the gospel music in a movie about Ancient Greece? There are so many things that don't make sense! When Hercules becomes a hero, apparently they made action figures of him even though action figures weren't invented until 1964! Also, Hades is the ruler of the underworld so when Pain and Panic lied to him about Hercules being dead, why didn't he just check to ...more - MegaSoulhero
Call me crazy, but this is more underrated in the sense that yes the story was not true to the mythology realm it was just being kid friendly with comedy action adventure value in it which was not that bad of a mix. - htoutlaws2012
This is underrated, not overrated
Why does everyone find this overrated, personally, its underrated at most - VideoGamefan5
It's not a great movie, just has an oh-so-timely message without which it would have quickly been ignored and forgotten like it truly deserved.
Its overrated but it's a great movie - VideoGamefan5
Ok, I know it's not THAT overrated anymore, but the fans were crazy during 2016 to early 2017. - darthvadern
How is this not on the list? Overrated in every way - Randomator
A movie no one likes isn't overrated. - DCfnaf
Some people on this site like it, though I respect their opinions - VideoGamefan5
Why isn't this in the top 10?
A very overhyped cash grab - VideoGamefan5
The Little Mermaid is a good film. It has excellent animation and a very awesome soundtrack! Everything about it is basically great! Except for one thing! ARIEL! She's the only thing that's keeping me from considering the Little Mermaid as one of the best Disney films! I did a whole rant about her in a post if you want to read it. But anyway, Ariel is a pretty big problem and pretty much everything bad that happens in the film is her fault! She gives up everything to be with a human she doesn't even know! She makes a deal with Ursula of all sea creatures and gives up her voice! She nearly gets a bunch of people killed by disobeying her father! And I'm the end, she gets rewarded by getting to keep her legs and she doesn't learn a lesson! And yeah! This movie has no lesson! If you disobey your father and nearly get people killed, you still get what you want? That's not how life works! The ending really infuriated me. This movie doesn't deserve the praise it gets and Ariel is the worst ...more - MegaSoulhero
I actually in a way agree with this one since I'm a male, and I would always see this, and while good it is very overplayed. No wonder All dogs go to heaven was vastly underrated compared to this movie. - htoutlaws2012
Avengers 2: Age of Ultron is way better than this, it had a lot of connection towards the original, great story, good humour, I might buy the Avengers 1 and 2 boxset if they still sell them. The original was not as good as Age of Ultron, but this movie plain sucked, so bad it is in the top 5 worst movies ever and the worst sequel ever made besides The Thinning 2. Both The Thinning movies are the worst. Endgame was not that much better, but still disappointed. IRON MAN DIES! Ha ha! Movie spoiled.
How is this not here? This movie SUCKED - B1ueNew
That wolf looks fake as hell!
Should be in the top 10
Underrated if anything, the reviews say otherwise it wasn't highly rated like in the 60's% range. I'm not saying its great I would not say overrated per say. - htoutlaws2012
Had good reviews though it's crappy
I just like it... The Lego Movie was WAY better - PeeledBanana
SUper overrated - VideoGamefan5
I think it's decent and all, but the franchise went downhill so fast!
I absolutely loved T2, but this was great as well. This film just didn't age well.
Not a bad movie. To be honest, I have mixed feelings for Christopher Nolan.
Proof Tarantino went downhill.
It's decent but too much flaws!
The logic is messed up!
While I think it's great, it hasn't really aged well. But the musical score & dialogue is outstanding!
The same with Prometheus!
Disappointing, not really bad - VideoGamefan5
It's really bad actually!
