    Disagree with most on the list OP. To help gauge your taste levels, what do you rate highly?

    nah just thought cos i needed an avatar and this out at the time

    I'll give you, star wars, titanic (may as well through in avatar), munich, the wire and to a lesser extent blade runner and the dark knight( great film but if ledger hadn't died it wouldn't have got the same accolades and neither would he) but you have to be mental not to love clerks, rasing arizona and especially the big lebowski.

    clerks (although other jay & silent bob films were good) & raising arizona fell asleep watching.
    big lebowski was ok just not as good as what everyone thought

    I loved Clerks, but probably because I used to work in a video shop when I was younger, and so I got alot of the jokes from my own experience.

    Gotta agree with The Road, utter drivel.

    Did you discover Clerks after having already viewed some of his other movies?

    like I said mental:-D

    I'll throw curb your enthusiasm and seinfield into the mix. I think it's a crying shame that larry david gets seasson after season of his contrived crap and yet arrested development only got 3.

    Up in air, transformers, avatar, titanic, gran torino, million dollar baby, glee, ashes to ashes, doctor who, braveheart, rocky, rambo, fellowship of the ring.,the west wing, six feet under, dexter, all soaps, spider-man, evil dead, big brother, x factor, britain's got talent, chris moyles

    LOTR - all 3

    paranormal activity!

    only agree with Bladerunner (i simply dont get whats good about it), and The Wire (i just couldnt get in to it). other than that, i really like everything i've seen in the OP

    I would probably say the LOTR trilogy are the most overrated movies of all time.

    Inglorious Basterds. Was good for about the first 10 minutes, then it turned crap.

    I'll throw one in that will probably get me some abuse - Magnolia

    There were people creaming themselves in another thread on here for the Blu-ray and I just don't get why. I'm a fan of Tom Cruise but this film in my eyes was utter garbage. Defo in my top ten worst films of all time.

    Banned

    Iron Man
    The Godfather
    Glee
    The Hangover ( funny but not as amazing as everyone says)
    THE HURTLOCKER ( How the f.... is this now labelled the best war film ever. No character exploration, predictable story line and defuse after defuse, yawn after yawn. Seen it all before thank you.)
    Heroes
    The Incredibles
    The boy in striped pj's.


    Shows/Films I like

    Lost (amazing show)
    Prison break (only on the 1st series)
    UP
    I am Legend
    Irobot
    Pursuit of happiness (bit of a trend :-) )
    Toy story's ( Looks like the third is going to be just as good imdb.com/tit…435 )
    Shawshank Redemption
    Apocalypto
    Wall-e

    So you like cartoons and Will Smith. You should check out Shark Tale.

    think i seen it after jay & silent bob and dogma

    donnie darko! I cannot stand these "ultra clever" films that all the critics claim as brilliant because they are terrified of appearing stupid by saying none of it made any sense.

    if a film needs to be explained to the audience in great depth after viewing it all seems a bit pointless imho.

    blair witch project-drivel!
    paranormal activity-utter drivel!

    oh and the office! ricky gervais just isnt funny!

    Strongly disagree with this. Movies don't have to make obvious sense to be brilliant. Donnie Darko works if you don't try and understand it or if you do. So much more to movies than linear narrative, just ask David Lynch.

    Withnail and I. Most overrated film ever! (and not funny...there, i said it! :-D )

    Shawshank Redemption

    It's good but definitely over rated.

    INB4 THE HATE.

    Eastenders
    Coronation Street
    Emmerdale

    I am Legend - so disappointing

    Is it because its ultra clever and you just dont get it but afraid to look stupid? :-D

    You've just lost any credibility you might have had.

    How dare you put Topgun in that list!!!! Whats next, Gladiator?

    Totally agree. One of those films that i watched once, thought was enjoyable and have never been able to sit through again.

    Was this ever highly rated? I remember everyone thing it was a bit mediocre when it came out

    left out all soaps and daytime tv (just the few times i have caught this drivel that they call entertainment) cause did not think i would have to include them.

    Topgun is so cheesy and awful. I don't see how anyone can think it's good. Strikes me as a chick flick really.

    Inbetweeners now that is another program that is overrated.
