Most Overrated Movies


  • 2018 2017 2016 2015 Customizer

    @Vance:

    My vote for the most overrated movie ever is a three way tie between all 3 of the new star wars movies made after Revenge of the Jedi.  GARBAGE.

    I would say that they were not as good as the originals, but then again that is pretty much the consensus.

    Some parts (and characters) are like “George, come on… really? That is the best you could come up with?” Other aspects were very good, including much of the story.

    Overall a bit of a let down, but still very important and I would say good films.

    I agree with you, if you have 20 years to plan for a sequal and the best you can do is The Phantom Menace you failed.

    True. When I heard they were coming out, I got very excited. I knew I would watch them at the cinema then own them myself. Instead after seeing  them, I decided I was not buying them on DVD.
    I hate those disappointments.

    There are still some very memorable moments, and personally I would not dismiss them out of hand… but they did not live up to their predecessors.

    I follow this very closely, and my understanding is not that people think the story or characters will be poor, but that PJ is overextending the original work into something it is not. Sort of a “butter scraped over too much bread” scenario. Some aspects of what I have seen in the newest preview have concerned me… plus the fact that most of the theaters will likely be showing the film at 48fps instead of the classic film rate, which makes it look like you are watching daytime soap operas.

    Overall I am optimistic, but it sure has the potential to be overrated. But I really hope it isn’t.

    I think you mean too much butter scraped over too little bread. 🙂

    Regardless, it can’t be as bad as the cartoon/semi-real LOTR movies from the 80’s lol…

    Well, yes, perhaps that is better. But Bilbo’s quote works just as well if we assume the original story is the butter and PJs movie the script/film.
    Either way… you get it.

    Tru dat.
