Overrated films.

Post by Luminous on Wed Nov 16, 2011 8:07 pm

Which films do you think are overrated/receive too much praise from the majority of people?

I would say...
- Harry Potter saga (The books are as well...I'm not saying that the franchise is terrible at all, bur JK Rowling's not a great author and the films condensed too much imformation imo).
- Avatar. Beautiful film and all, but the plot reminds me of Pocohontas to a certain extent. It's still worth watching though.

Can't really think of any others atm.

Before anybody says Twilight, it's not overrated, it's more hated than loved.

Anyway...

Titanic (terrible film, far too long for a movie about a boat sinking).

That's all I can currently think of.

Lol, you made my day with that thought about Titantic. I've never really liked it either.

I'm being serious! The first 2 hours aren't really needed, and even then, the final hour is rather drawn out. The length and fact it takes so long for the boat to sink just takes all the emotion away from the actual disaster.

Yeah. I didn't shed a tear when that guy dies at the end.
In real life it wouldn't take that bloody long to sink one ship.
It's all good milking the idea, but if you're compromising the quality of the film by making it too long then...yeah. Try again.

I forgot Mama Mia!
I actually sat through all of that (at home) and it zombified my brain for some time...

Dan's list of Overrated films

Avatar
Step Brothers (HATE IT)
Batman Begins
The Dark Knight
Trainspotting (It's good but not as good as people make out)
The Wizard of Oz (HATE IT)


That's all I can think of atm. I don't think the Harry Potter films are overrated in relation to the books, those that have read the books tend to agree that the films have nothing on the books.

JK Rowling isn't a great author no, and I do believe that she went way to over the top with killing off her main characters, she seemed to get caught up in wanting Harry to be this super loner that has to fend for himself and can never have a family, which is displayed when even The Weasley's suffer a loss and Lupin (Who Harry also sees as a father figure) and Tonks also die leaving their son with no parents like Harry. But yeah what I was going to say was, she isn't great but she is good enough to make a good series that most people love to read.

She's better than that chick who wrote the Twilight saga at least! Smile

Never read Twilight; never will.

J.K Rowling is actually a good author, but only for her skills to tell a story and the dialogue she uses. Also she doesn't go overboard in description, which I like. The films were really good imo and still stand as one of my favourite film series of all time (behind Lord of the rings).

The batman films are amazing though, hands down.
I admit though, I hate and think W OF OZ is overrated and suckish.
