Overrated Film
Titanic is the most overrated film that I have seen. The directing is inconsistent, the acting is mediocre and the love story is very poor. The onyl redeeming feature is seeing the ship sink. How it won Oscars is beyond me

Underrated Film
There are a lot of great silent films that are now greatly overrated. I have had the pleasure of seeing such titles as
Birth of a Nation
Broken Blossoms
The Big Parade
The General
These are all fantastic films. Yet they are barely recognised today. Silent films should be seen for how marvellous they really are. Modern viewers would get a shock to see these titles, as they are often much better than anything produced now.

A Beautiful Mind, Matrix and Titanic were very overrated, as were Chicago and Shrek[both charming, but hardly of 'best picture' caliber]. Underrated.. Hmm. Triplets of Belleville, Haiku Tunnel, Shadow of the Vampire and Ed Wood.
Kill Bill got very little acclaim except for its high violence level, but even if you hated the movie, you had to admit it deserved recognition for costumes and sound editing at least. Oh, Elle Driver <3.<3

The Mighty Quinn is underrated.  It's Denzel Washington's best film.  His accent comes and goes, but the movie is as nearly perfect as Hollywood films get.

Titanic, is definately over-rated. I saw it 4 times, when I was impressionable, now I have a more sensible choice in films!

Fear and Loathing? Underated? NEVER! Unknown, perhaps, but not underated.

"We were driving through Nevada, in the middle of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold."  laff

Best movie opening ever.

Well most of the people I've heard reactions from said something like: It was ok but a bit too strange. Maybe it's not underrated in terms of reviews, that I don't know anything about. It's just how I felt considering how people around me reacted to it.

Too strange? Losers. wink
I know nothing of revierws, but everyone who I know who has seen it (all four of them) think it's great.
I have no idea what critics have said of it. I don't care too much.

Pirates of the Carribean is an overrated movie.  I have heard good things about this movie since it came out, but after seeing it, I can say it's not a good movie.

Did we really need the main charcters to go to the secret pirate island, escape from the secret pirate island, then return to the secret pirate island again?  No, I don't think so.  If they would have condensed a little the film would have only been boring.  Instead it was both boring and drawn out.   sleep

The only reason it made a lot of money was because people had to go see it two or three times to figure out just what the hell was going on.

In fact, the movie was pretty easy to understand.

Or maybe I'm just too intelligent.   laff
