Ok we've had a gazillion and one posts about great movies, but how about movies you thought were overrated. Movies that everyone but you seems to love. Here are a few of mine.

The Usual Suspects: Haven't seen this in a while, but I remember being bored. The twist at the end was predictable, it was a simple process of elimination, and using an inductive process to figure the conventions of surprising revealations. More than that, the film was boring and lacking in any real style. Bryan Singer went on to direct the similarly bland X men.

Fight Club: Saw this the other day and it's not very good. It might be really far out when you're fourteen, but it's ideas are so jumbled and unoriginal. Yet I see it's tame banal quotes are used as signatures by pubescents across the www. There are a few interesting moments, but it's a very commercial and shallow exploration of postmodernism. It's self defeating by the mere fact that it stars Brad Pitt.

Virtually any hollywood comedy: Especially the movies of Sandler Schneider and Stiller. They rarely raise more than a smirk. Even Jim Carey's films are crap, except for a few of his less comedic roles.

I agree with all of the above.
But I really like Fight Club, the book.

The Goonies
Sin City (I actually fell asleep too soon to judge, but..)
Edward Scissorhands
American Psycho
Requiem for a Dream (I did LIKE it, I didn't LOVE it)

The Lord of the Rings. So boring.

Oh, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was boring too.

hehe it's about drugs, AWESOME!

and what the hell is up with Pirates of the Caribbean? That movie was mediocre at best.

Napolean Dynamite.... I finally broke down and watched this the other night to see what the big deal was. Everyone is always quoting it and wearing those stupid vote for pedro shirts. I didnt laugh once and I was completely shocked at how dumb it was. :shock:

The ring!! Everyone was telling me how scary this movie was for a year and when I finally watched it, I thought it was a comedy. The little mermaid scared me more than this movie.

Alien-again, all this hype about the horror; there is no horror!

The recent star wars movies were absolutely horrible. I could've stayed home and just played a video game instead of wasting my money on that garbage.

Seven--Another overrated "psychological thriller"

The royal shi tenbaums--Boring, pretentious, DULL!!!

Donnie Crapo--Ok, there is some kind of meaning to this movie? However, the meaning/plot twist is more out there than the meaning to a movie like Eraserhead or Lost highway!

I think I was the last person on this planet to watch Pulp Fiction when it came out. Hired it and almost turned it off after 20mins cuz I was so bored. Everyone one overrated it to the hilt and I was expecting so much more.

Spiderman movies... boring.

BLASPHEMY !!!!

I can't remember ever seeing a funny american comedy. Ever. But apart from that I can't really remember seeing a film I hated. Oh hang on - anything that Hugh Grant has been in. Especially 'Love Fucking Actually'.

Hmm...but thinking about it, Batman 4 (the one with George Clooney) was pretty awfull. Oh and 'Blair Witch 2', and 'The Exorcist - the beginning' were mildly terrible.

Any psudeo-intellectual backlash against such films as Alien, Seven and Fight Club will be deleted and I will lobby Rev to have the member banned for life. :p

Tee hee...yeah, that was pretty dreadful. Another John Travolta film - Battlefield Earth. God, that was crap.

Jaws 3D anyone? Jaws4, with Michael Caine? Any film with Steven Segal?

Axel, I couldn't agree more with your choices.

Reticent, I couldn't disagree more with your choices.

I don't watch nearly as many movies as i used to watch. I've gotten to the point where it takes a lot to compel me to rent a movie, much less go to a theatre and end up getting into psychological pissing matches with the chatty little teen morons in front of me. So, 90% of movies that come out i won't even see because i already know i won't like them. However, of the ones i've seen and was disappointed by, here they are in no particular order...

Man on Fire Tony Scott who, improbably, directed one of the greatest movies of all time (True Romance) ends up with this utter inanity. I couldn't believe how ridiculously horrible this movie was. As i was watching it i actually got so fed up i stood up and urinated all over my television screen just to put the movie in it's place.

Kingdom of Heaven Who the hell cares about Orlando Bloom? He is possibly the biggest sissy i've ever seen on screen. Am i seriously to believe that he's going to lead God's armies into Jerusalem? This movie was so boring and pointless i almost couldn't believe it. One minute they're going to Jerusalem, then Orlando gets a farm and has laughing children all around him (which i guess means he's a good guy...the bad guy, in case you're a complete moron, is the one with the goatee and the one who unneccessarily hassles our hero in every scene :roll:). Liam Neeson is his father, then he isn't his father...god, what a yawn. I just turned it off after about an hour and then vomitted on it.

The Core I don't know what possessed me to rent this in the first place, but here's the premise. A bunch of idiots have to drill in a "mole" to the center of the earth to somehow stop it from spinning off it's axis or something. Yeah, real plausible.

Spiderman If there is a lamer superhero than spiderman, i've never met him. And Sam Raimi sucks by the way. Evil Dead sucked. I don't know why people go on about this guy like he has talent or something.

Obviously anything with Adam Sandler, Will Ferrel, or any of those other hollywood icons who are supposedly funny.
