Since we are having the best of worst of, might as well start a most overrated movies…Ill start

Godfather (I know I know, but it insists upon itself…lol)
No Country for Old Men
Million Dollar Baby
Rosemarys Baby
Training Day
Forrest Gump
The Matrix
Scarface

What say you?

Blade Runner
The Usual Suspects
Pulp Fiction Reservoir Dogs
Fight Club

Forrest Gump
Star Wars (pick one… or all)
Batman (the first one with Michael Keaton)
Iron Man (I fuckin’ LOVED that film, but it was definitely over-hyped)

Forrest Gump
Million Dollar Baby
The Hangover (People over hyped it, funny but not the funniest thing I have ever seen).

With regards to the Hangover, the first time I saw it I totally thought it was overhyped, but I watched it a second and third time and the movie was the fucking tits…maybe watch it again.

Oh and another overrated movie…Jerry Maguire, show me the stupid

The Godfather series
Reservoir dogs
Raging bull
The Wrestler
AVATAR
EDIT: There will be blood
Lawrence or Arabia…

Wow Raging Bull? I agree with you with regards to the Godfather.

Clash of the Titans (original)
Conan (3 good scenes)
The Breakfast Club (waa waa waa, stfu)

I lol’ed hard…

And I loved the Wrestler, blasphemy.

Any Star Wars
Any Jurassic Park
Any Lord of the Rings
Anything with Leonardo DiCaprio

Most of Steven Spielberg’s stuff
Everything from Michael Bay (except the Rock perhaps)
Most Dream Works feature animation films

I do not consider Matrix a trilogy.

I can’t believe what some guys wrote, so far:
Blade Runner!!?! was quite the flop, so hardly “overrated” and easily one of the top sci fi films ever.
Star Wars?!?!? the series changed pop culture forever

Without a doubt, Avatar. Strip out the 3D and you basically have a rip-off of Dances wth Wolves.

Almost every recent Best Picture winner has been way overrated. i.e. Slumdog Millionaire

HAHA, I don’t know, I guess I just “got” what they were trying to say.

I thought it was well done, and a good commentary.

Maybe I’m weird?

Thanks, I was impressed by the pic myself.

SPOILER

The movie was really really sad. The man kept making the same stupid decisions over and over. He was his own worst enemy and ruined every good thing that ever happened to him (outside of his career, which got fucked up too.) And as he got older and really started to figure out that your life isn’t defined by partying on weekends, and what you do for a living, but by HOW you live your life and being a better person, he STILL can’t make the right choices.

The open ended ending was irrelevant. Dead or alive, he had already lost everything he ever had, ruined anything good in his life, and any hope of finding love and happiness was gone.

WTF…was this sent over to the Taliban. Did this replace Waterboarding. Why would someone watch that. The only 2 people I know of that should see movies like this are Bill Gate and Oprah. Because they are so rich and happy they need this kind of shyt to bring them down to earth so they won’t spend all day diving into there money pit and paying kids to run around town and hit the lesser rich over the head with ripe oranges.

The Big Lebowski
Napoleon Dynamite
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
