300 is overrated.
Forrest Gump is underrated for what it is. Nobody gets the messages. It's gotten the wrong reaction.
Kind of nominated for Best Retired User.

Underrated:

1. Requiem for a Dream
2. A Clockwork Orange
3. Garden State
4. Clerks (as wellas every other Smith film)
5. Pulp Fiction (I realise a lot of people have saw it, but there's tons of people who couldn't even tell you what it is).


I really don't know many overrated movies. I don't get to see many movies, and the ones I see are usually a little unknown. I don't get to see many of the really popular ones.

But I will say "Ghost Rider". I liked it for the most part, Nicholas Cage was great in it, and it was okay, but it just bored me. I usually watch movies all the way through. No exception. But this one made me just stop watching.

Garden State and Pulp Fiction are two of the more overrated films in existence. Pulp Fiction isn't a patch on Reservoir Dogs, there's barely any story and it's a mish mash of three different stories tacked together poorly.

Garden State is the indie kids wet dream and is nothing original. The only reaso it got made is because Zack Braff was big on TV at the time.

Clerks is the most overrated film in history. It's only good fort showing what no money can make you in the film world, but it's pretty boring and generally not that funny.

The only Kevin Smith movie that is underrated is Mallrats as it gets so much stick when it's easily the best of any of his films in that universe.

How can you say these films are underrated? People who know nothing about films rave on about them all the time.

To other people. A Clockwork Orange, Saving Private Ryan and The Shawshank Redemption are three of the most critically acclaimed films of all time. They are anything but underrated.

So is Kiki's Delivery Service, maybe I'm a bit biased towards this movie, since it's my favorite movie of all time, a little childhood regression kind of thing.

Spritied Away is OVERRATED.
And Fight Club is UNDERRATED.
Howl's Moving Castle deserves it's fame/hype.
^^^all great movies though. glad to see someone into Hayao Miyazaki movies.
#21
I always find it strange that Fight Club gets poor reviews in TV magazines when it's on but got good critical reviews.

I know! I bought this "Guide to DVD's 2007" Book and it gave Fight Club a turkey which is the equivalent of a half star. But on IMDB.com it is #30 on the top 250 movies.
I don't know if you could classify it as overrated or underrated.
#23
Underrated:

Spawn (John leguizamo makes the entire movie worthwhile. The other guys are meh, but John Leguizamo makes it top class.)
Bill and Ted's Excellent adventure
The Producers (Not nearly enough people have seen it)

Overrated:
Star Wars original trilogy (I love them, but the new ones make them look like fancy crap in storm trooper uniforms)

how are movies like clerks, shawshank, requiem, and garden state underrated? dont a lot of people love them already?

im pretty sure people are just posting their fav and leat fav movies...
#26
Underrated (i.e. among my friends as they assume it would be terrible but it's actually quite good or just nobody talks about them):

Crank

O Brother Where Art Thou

The Protector

Don't be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood

Equilibrium


Overrated:
All of Quentin Tarantino's movies (I used to love them, but I've come to realize how shitty they are.. especially kill bill 1/2)

Taxi Driver (God that movie was so boring... what I watched of Mean Streets was pretty bad too... and the Departed was good but not as great as everybody says... so Martin Scorsese isn't doing too great... although Goodfellas and Casino I love)

A Clockwork Orange (Proof that mindless violence sells... yes, there's a message thrown in there, but it's mainly lost within the raping and beating and bad music)

Trainspotting (Proof that drugs in movies automatically make people think it's good. After watching, I scratched the disk up and returned it to blockbuster to get a replacement movie for free.. despite getting this one as a free rental from my rewards card)

The entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy (There are only so many times I can watch Sam and Frodo about to kiss before I want to throw up)
#27

Battle Royale
The Killing Fields
