    Default Most Overrated Movie.

    what's the most overrated movie?

    NOTE: these are not all bad movies, they're just movies that are not as good as a lot of people seem to think.

    I would vote for Titanic.. but I believe most people now realize how corny that movie was.. and it's not regarded highly. I want to vote for Juno.. I thought it was pretty good.. but it's no masterpiece.. How come "Donnie Darko" is not in there?

    I agree with the English Patient nod. I personally thought it was a piece of crap.

    With only six specific movies to choose from, how can the answer be anything but "other"?

    Out of the ones in the poll, I picked Garden State. It came out when I was in High School and everyone thought it was so deep. I think a lot of people thought that it was so indie and liking it would make them hip.

    Why in the fuck would you even put Fight Club and Reservoir Dogs on here? Jesus Christ, you have worse taste in movies than your fucking namesake.

    Of the choices, the boondock saints by far. I feel like gouging out my eyeballs whenever some zit faced teenager claims it's one of the greatest movies ever made.

    Juno and Fight Club were excellent movies.
    Why were they added?

    And both are hardly overrated.

    Napoleon Dynamite- it was funny, but COME ON SERIOUSLY??? FUCCCCK

    Sideways- i feel like people saw it and thought "well i dont really know...but it got great reviews to it MUST be exceptional" bullshit. it was trite and pretentious.

    fight club is an excellent film, and an even better book. one of the only film adaptations that didnt royally fuck up, even though they seriously altered the plot line. i understand though that it has become a "token" favorite film. but it shouldnt take away its merit just because a large percentage of people are dumbasses who will cling to any semblance of pop culture that they think will garner them acceptance.

    same goes for resevoir dogs more or less. tarantino has become hugely successful largely because a lot of people are stupid. but, most people who LOVEEEEE tarantino hated death proof because it was "boring and they just talked a lot" tarantino is a master at dialog, if you can't appreciate his subtle mastery in death proof you probably only like him because he is SO IN RIGHT NOW.

    Fight Club ans Reservior Dogs shouldn't be on this list.

    Juno was a decent movie but Oscar nominations are a bit much.

    I'm sure legions of lemming high school girls are going to start talking like juno too.

    Napoleon Dynamite is fucking unwatchable, that should have been on there. My brother and I overrided my sister's recommendation of it after like 25 minutes. No discussion, just "Okay, we're turning this the fuck off."

    Fight Club is one of the best movies ever made. Reservoir Dogs is in the top 100, and for the limitations of the budget and what it was trying to be it is pretty much perfect. Seriously, perfect. Except for this one part where Harvey Keitel fails to light a cigarette but pretends he's smoking anyway.

    Borat was great, but people quoting it was almost as bad as the Austin Powers ages.

    Oh, and the book is not better than the movie in Fight Club's case. The book's great, and the differences are really interesting, but that movie executed the twist of the story brilliantly, with a constantly excellent combination of score, cinematography, acting, and editing. It's like Trainspotting--the material was just too easy to make into a better movie if a really talented director got his hands on it.

    What part? If it was in the bathroom right after he got back to the meeting spot I think it was intentional. Keitel's character was so cool and calculated on the surface that his failure to operate a cig was the lone indication he was panicked internally. IMO.
