Donnie Darko, if it isn't already.


Certainly overated.I wouldnt say that its seen as a dud now though.Like Shymalyan, its the directors subsequent work which may cause people to look back on it with less praise.Didnt the director make that critically derided film with The Rock and Sarah Michelle Gellar a few years later? Cant remember what it was called.


But who is it overrated by?


This is why I loathe the word "overrated" in this regard. It's basically meaningless as a criticism. All it means is a bunch of people loved/liked a film and someone else didn't. "Other people love this film...but I don't so it's overrated!" It's bollocks.

Guys, guys, guys - I thinky you've ALL misunderstood the point of the thread...

The title clearly asks what overated films - I think CB is talking about films that have eaten WAY too much food.

Also, fair play to you CB for completely ignoring the unrelated comments you've pretty much begged people to leave on record.

Thanks great_badir.There does seem to be a misunderstanding about what overated means.It doesnt necessarily mean that a film is absolute rubbish.For example, i really like Blade Runner but i do not think it is the absolute masterpiece that many make it out to be.On the other hand, i think the LOTR films are totally overated and i hate them with a passion.

And thanks great_badir for pointing out that there are trolls on here who seem intent on derailing threads with childish name calling and personal insults.It is best just to ignore them ( They know who they are ) which is why the block button is a great feature on this site.

Back to the topic on hand....i think Whistler mentioned The Hurt Locker earlier.I do think that this film is highly overated and certainly didnt deserve all the praise it got.However, from my point of view, its still a decent enough film and dont think its really seen as a dud.But thats just me.

With those examples you have failed to define overrated in this so-called context and have contradicted yourself. They're only overrated from your perspective. It's subjective, innit. If something doesn't live up to its hype it still just comes down to individual opinion. You hate LOTR, loads of others love it. Same with Blade Runner. You consider them overrated, but I can't imagine them becoming duds simply because you don't appreciate them the way others do. And this isn't trolling, by the way, I just don't really understand the thrust of the thread and how it seems to be anything other than just naming a few recent films you don't quite like. Imagining how those films may or may not be perceived down the line just seems so...pointless?

But hey, never mind, life's too short for this shite.

You do know he was taking the piss because you spelled 'overrated' wrong, right? Lovingly taking the piss, mind, not nastily.

I think your post is overated..sorry, OVERRATED.

And im ignoring certain posts because i have certain trolls on this site blocked so i cant see what they are posting.

Back on topic...would The Matrix ( which was deemed as a classic at the time) be held in less regard now because of the poor critical reception given out to the sequels, especially by fans of the original film? I myself always thought the original was overRated but do think it is still a decent action film.

But 'overrated' implies that the people who like it have got it wrong and it's actually not as good as they think it is - it's basically saying their opinion isn't as vaild as yours. I don't like Lord Of The Rings either but I wouldn't suggest my view is right and the people who like it have missed something. It's not only a meaningless phrase it's a rather arrogant one.
That's just in terms of films though - in real life, as we all know, the four most overrated things are champagne, lobster, anal sex and picnics.

Only if your a fucking idiot. If you let sequels or remakes ruin your enjoyment of the original films then you never really liked it that much in the first place.

This thread would be much better if you gave reasons why you think the films are overrated.

All four have been widely praised by critics (and, apart from Prometheus, have been up for major awards) but really aren't very good films - isn't that the definition of overrated?

as with everything it's subjective isn't it?...all I'm suggesting is that these films are highly praised but over time they won't be remembered (because they aren't actually good films). It's my opinion that they are not good films now but I believe that other people will feel the same way in the future

The title of this thread is what overrated films will be future duds. I believe these films are currently overrated and will be future duds....the point of a forum is to express your opinion, which I'm doing

The guy who started the thread suggests Iron Man 3 - who says that's overrated - certainly not me...It think it's underrated.. it is by far and away my favourite Marvel movie so far.

To each their own - if you want to argue about whether those movies are really overrated or not then please do - let me know your opinions on them...

But if you call something overrated you're doing the complete opposite of respecting someone else's opinion - you're saying their opinion is wrong. You seriously think in ten years time all the people who loved Zero Dark Thirty are gonna say 'You know what, the likes of Chud Monkey were right, it's a piece of shit. What idiots we were for liking it!'?

Lots of people, they will watch the trilogy thru in years to come and realise when they get to TDKR that is was just an inferior copy of TDK but nowhere near as good and in so many ways completely inferior and plain dreadful!. They will watch every seen with Alfred and Bruce in and just laugh at how unnecessary, overwritten , hammy and corny those particular scenes are! (they should be doing this now mind). Tom Hardy was wasted and the Bane character , apart from some amusing quips was completely short changed and underdeveloped.

So because you personally don't like a film everyone who does like it has simply got it wrong and one day they'll realise the truth? Jesus Christ.

I never once mentioned that I wanted to respect anyone's opinion.....I've not seen anyone respecting mine so far

I'd appreciate your thoughts on the movies not on the definition of a term - it's a movie forum after all

Taking things pretty personally aren't you? People are expressing their opinions on movies....it would be quite nice if you did the same....whether we agree on your opinions or not.

I personally think some movies are overrated by the general populace, critics and the movie industry as a whole and I believe in the future many people (but not all) will feel the same way. General consensus is that Zero Dark Thirty and The Impossible and great movies....my opinion is that they are not...I'm not forcing anyone to believe me, I just believe in the future the general populace, critics and the movie industry won't be quite so appreciative of those movies (I could be wrong, I could be right but none of us can predict the future... )

Well, if you're looking for a defination of overrated movie how about Phantom Menace?

Inital love turned to hate. Once people moved past thier annoyance of Jar-Jar they realised the rest of the movie wasn't up to much.

there's even a story about one guy who gave it a nice review and had it thrown back at him for years after.......

It's the only truely overreated movie I cna think of...and anything new or interesting to say about it was done a long time ago.

Lots of people, they will watch the trilogy thru in years to come and realise when they get to TDKR that is was just an inferior copy of TDK but nowhere near as good and in so many ways completely inferior and plain dreadful!. They will watch every seen with Alfred and Bruce in and just laugh at how unnecessary, overwritten , hammy and corny those particular scenes are! (they should be doing this now mind). Tom Hardy was wasted and the Bane character , apart from some amusing quips was completely short changed and underdeveloped.


So because you personally don't like a film everyone who does like it has simply got it wrong and one day they'll realise the truth? Jesus Christ.


yeh thats kind of the idea of the thread you silly.

Taking things pretty personally aren't you? People are expressing their opinions on movies....it would be quite nice if you did the same....whether we agree on your opinions or not.

I personally think some movies are overrated by the general populace, critics and the movie industry as a whole and I believe in the future many people (but not all) will feel the same way. General consensus is that Zero Dark Thirty and The Impossible and great movies....my opinion is that they are not...I'm not forcing anyone to believe me, I just believe in the future the general populace, critics and the movie industry won't be quite so appreciative of those movies (I could be wrong, I could be right but none of us can predict the future... )


Fanboys for you.

Donnie Darko, if it isn't already.


Certainly overated.I wouldnt say that its seen as a dud now though.Like Shymalyan, its the directors subsequent work which may cause people to look back on it with less praise.Didnt the director make that critically derided film with The Rock and Sarah Michelle Gellar a few years later? Cant remember what it was called.


But who is it overrated by?


Ha indeed...

Still I disagree with you about TDKR - it's actually my favourite of the three....but you know that's what these forums are for...to express differing opinions!

True, but when someone uses the term 'overrated' they're not expressing an opinion on the film, they're expressing an opinion on the people who like the film. And coming to the conclusion that the people who like it have got it wrong, in actual fact they've been fooled into believing the film was great and one day they'll realise the truth. It's laughably ridiculous, the height of arrogance and the type of meaningless critical thinking most people leave behind when they're about 12.
