Having recently seen The Curious Case of Benjamin Button at an advanced screening I can certainly add it to this thread. Totally undeserving of the hype/critical acclaim.

Eric Roth clearly didn't learn from his mistakes in Forest Gump.

What's the most overhyped film you've ever seen?

You know, either one that is celebrated as a classic that you just don't agree with or maybe a blockbuster thats success baffles you.

I think this deserves a mention:




Was it over hyped?  it was a very nice film but hyped?  I must have missed that.

Juno


I didn't mind Juno but I did find it a bit hard to see why it was getting so much attention.  It was alright but nothing more.  Good soundtrack though, and anyone who can get Shadowcat, J Jonah Jameson and Elektra into the same film deserves a round of applause.

I will nominate Heat.



I fuckin' hated juno, it's like the entire script was written by ned flanders.
fucking wannabe indie wank.

What annoyed me the most, apart from the dialogue was that I listened to the hype to watch the fucking thing.

I know the sequels aren't considered all that great, but I thought the first POTC was an overhyped and overrated mess of a film

I dunno, the main thing of POTC was the word of mouth and strong reviews.  It was a surprise hit rather than a AAAhyped to the nines we will make it a hit whether yuo like it or not like the sequels.  still if you didn't like thats your fault for not having a sense of humour

The Titanic, no doubt. Overhyped, overplayed and overrated.

Nah, it's not that I don't have a sense of humour, I just got sick of Johnny Depp babbling on nonsensically for 2 hours.

I can't remember The Prodigy in Event Horizon  What track was it?



Funky Shit is the closing track over the credits, not really a part of the film, but still, it fits well.


I've seen Event Horizon a long time back, and you know I like it, BUT WHAT THE FUCK WAS FUNKY SHIT DOING AT THE END?


Is a brillent track from the Fat of the Land album.
it has a beastie boy sample on it.

I'll stand alongside you on that one brother. A thouroughly decent and classy Superhero film with a great villian, but Bale's Batman is dull as ditchwater. I went in thinking my life was about to change after all the things I'd read about it..!

I still think Batman Begins is better (IMO). Dont get me wrong it's still a good film & Ledger is excellent , but for me that was about it.

Honestly...

Gone with the wind: Very long and quite dull

The Godfather: don't get me wrong, a very good film, but is it really the best one ever?

Donnie Darko: Moody teenager who sulks and poses and mumbles who falls in love with girl (director scratches head) "not very original is it?"  "Ahh... just throw a man in a rabbit suit in there....."

Thing is I don't remember there being much 'hype' surrounding it. So is it really relevant, or just an opportunity to have a cheap dig?

No hype? No hype?

Once the 'This is Sparta' was released, it blew out of proportion, poeple were wanting to see it for it visuals and everyone was qouting it. There was a huge hype before it.

Thankyou for that, it made my day! Although, next time, post a picture of Dilios, yeah?

I agree with Spengler...it's a fantastic film.

My vote goes to Team America. It was hyped up as being the funniest film ever, and it was a stinking pile of crap. What a waste of my time
