    Most overrated movies

    The Godfather in my opinion.

    Have you read the Godfather? Did you prefer the book or the film?

    Personally i prefer the film, the performances and direction are excellent. Don't think it even slightly over-rated.

    Most over-rated film i'd say would be Anchorman. Its funny but its not that funny

    I didn't 'get' why Juno was so talked up.

    I know there is another one but I will have to come back

    Oh, and I thought Matrix was boring from the beginning - never bothered watching past the first 30 minutes (please don't kill me!)

    DOGMA!!!! all the slightly older (:?) people i know absolutely love it...and Im sure I see it in 'top 50' type programmes......OK so I watched it and fell asleep....I was trying to understand it but really couldnt...didnt make sense lol

    Godfather I and II are brilliant films, from all angles. Part III was poor though - Sofia Coppola's acting ruined it for me - worst casting decision in the history of cinema..?

    yea juno, and anything Jolie is in

    I haven't read it no, but I do agree acting and direction are excellent. In terms of movie making, it was made flawlessly, but I dunno, I think a movie has to keep your grip, and many many movies kept that hold on me longer. And yeah I agree with Anchorman, it was good, not great.

    Smeagol yea juno, and anything Jolie is in

    Hear, hear. Although Keria Knightley came up well with a bit of ronseal.

    The Godfather is not overrated. If you think that then you're overrating what's in your head. You think it's a brain, but it's actually quite obviously a sponge of some sort. An above-average sponge to be sure as it seems to have some power over your motor functions, but not very well-versed in what makes a movie good or not.

    Oh look, I'm all of a lather.

    Just me I think but I didn't really like Bedtime Stories.

    this is just going to be a thread to give people excuses to slate awesome movies.

    I though Matrix was **** too!!

    It's also a good thread to tell people that they're wrong.

    You're wrong.

    I think there's also a problem with building a film up so that it can never fail to be anything but 'overrated'. That's why some of the all-time greats will be mentioned.

    I hated American Beauty - it was just dull and no, it wasn't just that I didn't 'get' it

    Got to agree 100%

    I'd add "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", "A Brilliant Mind" and "Lost in Translation".

    Lost in Translation; definately.

    titanic, all 3 lord of the rings, crash( not the sexy creepy one), the curious case of benjam( god i'm even bored typing the title).

    There will be blood. It was very slow and the movie sound track was over dramatic.

    The entire soundtrack was a feeble knock-off of Threnody for the Victims. I hate the movie, and the obedient slime that praise it as some peice of art, more than words can express.

    Going back a bit

    The Others (Nicole Kidman)

    :thumbsup: well said!

    Yeah I'm a bit sensitive about movie sound tracks as they can ruin an entire movie if they use the wrong atmospheric, ambient effects. I'm currently enjoying

    mam mia it just gives fat housewives an excuse to cause a racket at the cinema. nonsense.

    Only thing I liked about Dogma was Salma Hayek

    All of the batman movies, due to being overhyped they have always disappointed me.

    The Original Blade Runner, I love that film, but it was spoilt by the dumb ass yanks wanted a voice over to explain the plot to them, so much better once they realised the directors dream and released the version without.

    Generally what bugs me is when they cast a "big name star" for a lead, when they are so wrong for the part, or at the insistence of the accountants they dumb down the film to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

    On that note, The Dark Knight, way overrated.

    Godfather. Amazing.

    On the other hand. V for Vendetta. Not so amazing. i.e. Overrated.

    The Mist

    I spent that entire film just wondering why people would react in that way and why someone didn't just give the religious bird a slap. Also predicted the ending from the moment Stephen King's name came up at the start.

    The problem with Dogma is it's not as clever or controversial as it likes to think it is. Ironically, George Carlin is in it and his jokes about religion are generally better than this film and say essentially the same.

    She got more than a slap mate...

    Zodiac. Worst. Film. Ever.

    Atonement is also amazingly bad, I nearly fell asleep after 5 minutes.

    Got to say though, Dogma is pretty good,

    No Country For Old Men - Seriously overrated.

    Anchorman, in fact Will Ferrell generally is pretty overrated
