    Since someone started a threat of great flicks, I thought I start a thread on the most overrated movies that I have seen in the last 10 years..

    ..I'll start out with one that I actually hated.. I thought it was sappy, self-congratulatory, all the white characters were one dimensional ditzes...and gave the audience a false superiority complex..It was actually one that the "evolved" Howard cried while watching...fucking pussy...and wouldn't you know this was one of Beth-Ho's favorites...

    just to clarify... do you mean overrated as far as reviews go or as far as promotional dollars spent in terms of how good a movie is?

    Dark, completely un-super, boring, dark, noisy, plotless, pitifully acted and voiced by the lead, graceless, tedious, dark, and dark. Awful bloody movie. Criminally overrated.

    Oh yeah, this too. What a piece of crap! Utter borefest, endless tedium, plot cribbed and written in crayon. Even the effects were terrifically overrated.

    I saw the coming attractions for this flick which usually highlights the best scenes...but when I saw that it was ..1. black and white...a silent flick..and about the 1920s...that was three strikes for me...no way was I going to see this shit...
