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...

Vantage Point
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!

Why not? Let me guess - because it insists upon itself?

heh.

Well to answer the question seriously, I think The Matrix is vastly over-rated beyond belief.

`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.

The Departed.

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
Chicago,Juno,Napoleon Dynamite.
I could list 100's of overrated films to be honest,certainly alot more than underrated ones.
