Top List of Overrated Movies Ever

We clearly understand that our rating will face a lot of criticism. Surely you may accuse us of being subjective, or perhaps that we have a personal dislike for the actors or story-lines shown in these films. However, if you drop your personal assessments, you will see that we argued for each position in our rating list. The film’s mission does not lie in its huge budget or multi-billion-dollar box office. After all, the main goal of cinema is to tell really inspiring stories, and not those that seem so only thanks to the good job of actors, cameramen, directors or other participants in the filming process. Isn’t that right?
Below you will see the 8 most overrated movies in cinematic history. Of course, these are great films that are worth spending two or more hours of your free time watching them. But should not expect from them as much as various cinema critics promise in their immoderately enthusiastic reviews, and not expect from these movies for what cinema-academies have awarded the film creators with many awards.

8. Star Wars
Even though the franchise has millions of fans who can’t imagine their lives without this cinematic universe, we place Star Wars in the eighth position of our rating. The argument is the trivial and simple storyline of this iconic inter-galactic story. There is the bad guy called Darth Vader and the good guys with the lightsabers who are trying their best to stop the scoundrel in a black outfit. Special attention deserves a funny Jedi mentor named Yoda after looking at him a smile involuntarily appears on your face.

7. Black Swan
Natalie Portman, along with Mila Kunis, was superbly prepared for the film. The actresses took ballet lessons and convincingly performance the stories of their characters. But what else is outstanding in Black Swan besides the amazing acting duo of two the Hollywood beauties? The plot of this movie is almost the same as the low-budget horror movies, during watching which you yet in the middle of the film, know what the ending will be.

6. American Pie
Do you really think this film is one of the best comedies of the last thirty years? If you are 12 years old, it may be so, but people who can think will hardly agree with you. The low-grade and sometimes vulgar humour that is present in this movie places American Pie in sixth place in our ranking list. Strangely, why this film is so popular that as many as 3 sequels to this story have made later. However, it is worth acknowledging the truth that the movie is really funny in some moments.

5. Citizen Kane
Surely you have already been told that you must watch this film. If you haven’t done it yet, then you have absolutely nothing lost, on the contrary, only saved your time. Firstly, it is too long and boring. This movie story lasts three hours, but there are too few events and almost no intrigue in it. Secondly, at the end of 2020, the work with the camera, the makeup of the actors and the scenery does not look as convincing as it did during the release of Citizen Kane. So you better watch something more modern and relevant than this three-hour black & white story.

4. Birdman
One of the most overrated Hollywood movies in the last few years. Yes, of course, Michael Keaton is a great actor, what he again demonstrated in this comedy. Yes, there is no doubt that the camera work was also done at the top level. But how is this movie better than hundreds of other similar films made in the last decade? Did Birdman deserve to get an Oscar? Oh yeah, we have slightly forgotten how “objective” the Academy might be. Leonardo DiCaprio will not let us lie.

3. Scarface
We adore Al Pacino and admire his acting talent. But why did this particular gangster classic become so popular? Maybe Scarface more violent and dynamic than other similar films of that era, plus the Al Pacino factor influenced the film’s popularity? Still, Scarface is an overrated movie, just watch Godfather, to be sure of this.

2. Avatar
If it weren’t for the amazing visual effects and the star cast that was assembled in Avatar it would be another boring movie about how love can overcome various difficulties. The storyline as well as the characters’ actions in many situations are predictable and are characteristic of other Hollywood movies. Did you ever think about anything other than a cool picture after watching that multimillion-dollar blockbuster? Has this film changed your worldview at least a little bit and will you quote the main characters in your everyday life? The answers to these questions are obvious, so Avatar is rightly ranked second in our list of the most overrated movies.

1. Titanic
Of course, the shipwreck and the scenery give a powerful impression. The performance of the protagonists is amazing too. But the plot? It’s a banal story of a girl who got bored of her aristocratic life with a rich husband and decided to have fun with a poor guy who happened to be on Titanic. Even if it was a cute poor guy like Leo DiCaprio. Don’t you think that’s a trivial idea?
