Default Overrated/Underrated Movies

Not necessarily bad movies, but are there any films others consider "masterpieces" or "classics" that you can't quite agree with? Or maybe films you think deserve more recognition?

I don't think there's already a thread like this, if there is, I'm sorry! :3

Oh this is easy!!!!

"Dirty Fiing Dancing"!!!!!!!

The plot is weak, the music's utter rubbish and it's BORING AS HELL! The only thing it DID inspire in me was the urge to turn it off!!

Omg I love that movie! & the music, haha! But probably because I grew up with it, my mom corrupted me. More nostalgia effect than anything. ;p Thanks for replying!

Haha I actually understand. ;p If I hadn't seen it until recently, I might not have been that impressed, it's not exactly my kind of movie either, but I was brainwashed into it at a young age. xD

I agree with Meet The Parents! I haven't seen it in its entirety in years but I remember I wasn't too impressed by it.

Only seen it with the sound off (in work) but Avatar looks terrible. Pretty colours and not much else.

Ohh yes, Avatar. The first half is alright but it just gets worse as it goes. I can't sit through it most of the time.

I think some of the Pixar movies are kinda overrated, especially The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Cars. I just didn't enjoy them that much.

Avatar was... well, I have to admit that the CGI was amazing.

Problem is, I've seen that story in a bunch of other places, so it wasn't original.

I loved Ratatouille

Avatar was like a CGI Fern Gully for grown ups.

Clerks was a big let down after already seeing Mallrats and a few other Kevin Smith films.

p.s. It's a sailboat
