OT: Most over-rated movies!
« on: July 11, 2006, 08:34:59 pm »
I was thinkin about it and god...there are a lot of extremely over-rated movies out there...so just for shits and giggles I'm curious to see what you all think...

What is in your opinion the most over-rated movie ever!

Mine?  A Beautiful Mind....now don't get me wrong...it was a good film.  But EXTREMELY over-rated...

'Jerry McGuire'.

I think I'm the only person on the planet who thought this movie sucked.

No del I didn't like 'Jerry McQuire' either..crap from start to finish


Cold Mountain  & The New World after all the hype two of the most boring and poorly acted films I have ever had the displeasure to shell out cash for.  Nick and I actually walked out of The New World  about two thirds through.

God Vic, we walked out of the New World too... my whole family, I honestly believe it was one of the worst movies I've seen, and I've seen a lot of bad ones...

I tend to think all of Quentin Tarentino's movies are overrated... I enjoy them, but they aren't as hot shit as everybody says

Hi guys...I loved 'A New World'.   ;D  I even have the DVD and the soundtrack.  Critics loved the movie as well.  I'd never seen a Terrance Malick movie before, but my mood was right when I saw it.  Lush cinematography, massive walls of gorgeous music and a non-linear story.  Many critics said people who preferred straight-forward narratives would not like Malick's work.  Apparently his 'Thin Red Line' was the same.

 :) I so agree with Vik on this one - Cold Mountain was horrible - about 3/4th of the way through, my sister and I looked at each other
and said " is this guy(Jude Law) ever going to get back to his girl (Nicole Kidman) - it was so plodding and slow, couldn't wait for it to be over -
I see a lot of movies, but that one just about did me in for length and lack of action........zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz :D

Now I love Thin Red Line.

I also feel Quentin Tarentino is highly overrated.  The only thing he's directed so far that I can honestly say I enjoyed was an episode of CSI.

Thems fightin words....Jerry MaGuire is one of my all time favorites...one of the few that I can actually stand Cruise in...that and Minority Report and thats more of a Spielberg thing...

Never saw Cold Mountain and I agree with The New World...boring as hell!  Talking about long and self-important...couldn't sit through it either...
