Overrated Movies

My over-rated movies lists would look very similar to Premiere's 20 Most Overrated Movies list. Chicago, Clerks, Jules and Jim, Nashville, Easy Rider... all check, right up until 2001: A Space Odyssey.


Any list of overrated movies that does not include Titanic, which won 11 Oscars, is incomplete and null and void.

Good to see Mystic River on there, though.

I really like "Jules and Jim" and I think "Nashville" is one of the best films ever made. I hate "Forrest Gump" and "A Beautiful Mind," though. Can't even be friends with Gump lovers.

remember when American Beauty was edgy?

The fact that Harold and Maude isn't mentioned tells me that this is being done by a younger crowd. They go after the so called "cult" classics, but they somehow forget to talk about that film.
Bah, I say. Bah!

11?! holy crap that's an even better point than the one about 2001ASO.
