I have to throw this one in....
Pulp Fiction...there, I said it! Pulp Fiction is totally overrated...
Too right, the fooking thing is backways or sideways or some crap.
If the story just ran normally from start to finish, everyone would think it was sh1te...
Superman (new one)
Burn After Reading
Inevitably the list will be endless with what somebody find good and somebody finds overrated. I loved all the Star Wars films, but I'm a Star Wars nerd...
Each to their own really!
Well to answer the question seriously, I think The Matrix is vastly over-rated beyond belief.
Yeah Burn After Reading is pants.
The Shawshank Redemption
The Godfather [Both Apocalypse Now and The Conversation are vastly supierior]
Edward Sccisorhands and almost everything else by Tim Burton [except Ed Wood]
The Big Lebowski [Oh Brother Where art Thous and Fargo are far better]
`do like some coen brothers films but
1./ fargo (yaaaaw!) and
2./ no country for old men ??. I think people liked fargo at the time just because it was coen brothers.
hated film 3./ something about mary. spunk in hair jokes is basically used when you arent able to write jokes and I am not a prude, - walked out of that film.
4./ clockwork orange (am I even allow to say that?)
5./ Eat the peach (liked coz it was made in ireland, god they were miserable times)
I hate this type of threads normally.
But I find El Topo fiercely overrated.
Lost in Translation...cept johansen in her skimpies...she pretty
While its not a bad film (starts off well and goes downhill). Its definitely not as good as everyone made it out to be. Some very poor acting in parts.
They should have stuck closer to the original. (Especially with the end)
I always thought the fact that Martin Scorsese won an oscar for this was a token gesture. He created much better films and didnt win an oscar for them when he should have (Goodfellas to name but one) and then they nominate Mark Wahlberg for an Oscar for best supporting actor . He was one of the reasons the film started to grate on me.
You could say the sam about many films such as Memento.
But that's the point of Memento, you're supposed to be as lost as he is!
Can't say I cared much for Pulp Fiction either, but then I'm not a Tarantino fan so that's probably why.
Have to agree with Crash. Can't believe that won an Oscar. Political correctness gone mad........
Pirates of the Caribbean....I don't know, maybe it was just Orlando Bloom, or maybe Keira Knightley, or maybe the whole obvious blockbuster-y-ness of it all, it really didn't do it for me
So many pet hates for overrated films
Donnie Darko,Fight Club,Fargo,American Beauty,The Departed,Sideways.
All critically acclaimed but I thought they were very average films .
Other films are just dreadful
I could list 100's of overrated films to be honest,certainly alot more than underrated ones.
first off, bieng over-rated does not mean i dislike a film...then again,
Juno. liked it, not oscar worthy.
Indy IV. rubbish
The prestige. crap ending
Godzilla (54) useless, not even as good as the 98 remake
The Matrix sequeals
the "Tremors" films
gangs of new york
