My Overrated Films

People who added this item 2307  Average listal rating (1370 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.5 
1. Happy Feet (2006)
I thought this was a mean, unfunny and uncute piece of schlock. It's a poor plot executed horribly.

2. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
I thought this film was incredibly boring. It may look nice, and I did find the HAL storyline very interesting and engaging, however, this film was a snoozer. It could've cut an hour easily.

3. Transformers (2007)
This was a loud and obnoxious ear and eye rape that I felt was sucking my intelligence as I watched it. I can understand if you like it, if you just want to see expensive CGI explosions, but I don't find that entertaining.

4. Iron Man (2008)
I was very confused by the plot, and I couldn't gravitate towards Tony Stark's character at all.

People who added this item 5824  Average listal rating (4041 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 8.5 
5. Gladiator (2000)
Kind of boring, it's a story that I've seen done many other times and done better. It's way too long and the characters aren't engaging.
garfield2710's rating:

People who added this item 479  Average listal rating (295 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.3 
6. Murder on the Orient Express (1974)
This movie is incredibly dull. The mystery twist ending is good, but that came from the original novel. I could hardly understand what these people were saying through those accents.

People who added this item 3093  Average listal rating (2031 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.7 
7. The Usual Suspects (1995)
The twist ending might have been good, but that's not a good enough reason to save the rest of this movie. It's confusing, unengaging and dull.
garfield2710's rating:

People who added this item 2690  Average listal rating (1751 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating 6.2 
8. Superman Returns (2006)
This movie was just boring. The action was unintersting, I wasn't impressed by the acting, and the story wasn't well written.
garfield2710's rating:

People who added this item 1576  Average listal rating (1019 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.4 
9. Salt (2010)
I can enjoy over-the-top action stunts, but this goes beyond that and gets just plain goofy. The film seems needlessly complicated, and I did not have an emotional response to any of these characters.
garfield2710's rating:

People who added this item 4470  Average listal rating (3042 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.9 
10. Avatar (2009)
This film is okay, and it looks nice, but it's a story that's been done so many times in films like Pocahontas (a film I didn't like) and Dances with Wolves. Another film released earlier that used the idea for this movie much more effictively and originally was Battle for Terra.
garfield2710's rating:

People who added this item 5685  Average listal rating (3758 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.9 
11. E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
Again, this one is just okay, however, I couldn't get engaged in the story or the characters very well, and I don't believe it deserves status as a classic.
garfield2710's rating:

People who added this item 3222  Average listal rating (2068 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 8.1 
12. The Wizard of Oz (1939)
Before you all jump down my throat, I don't hate this movie. I really like this movie, however, I don't believe it deserves the AFI's spot in Top 100 films, and I certainly don't think it's a brilliant film that deserves it's status as a classic.

This are movies that, for whatever reason, I find overrated. These aren't necesarily movies I hate, these are just ones I find overrated.

as for happy feet- i hated it. and i really dont see why everybody loves it so much

...How could you not understand the storyline in Iron Man?

The Usual Suspects is one of the best films ever made, you're just a perfectionist.
Posted: 1 year, 4 months ago at Dec 19 16:31
Umm, when it comes to films, not really. I've given a lot of films 10/10 even though I don't consider them "perfect". There is no such thing as the perfect film. The reason I put the Usual Suspects on this list, and I still stand behind it, is because the only thing I remember about this film was the twist ending. I don't remember any of the the characters other than the villain or the middle of the film. If the only good thing I can say about a film is a twist ending, that's not a good sign. But again, you're entitled to your own opinion.

I don't think Superman Returns is overrated. That movie gets a lot of hate.

2001: A Space Odyssey is really overrated, not to mention how pretentious it is. Some great choices here...

Really? Happy Feet is overrated? I understand some of these like Avatar, Gladiator, even Transformers. But Happy Feet? o.O
