The Most Overrated Movies in the History of Cinema

What’s the most overrated movie you’ve ever seen?  Buzzfeed asked its readers for their suggestions.

Here are some highlights:

1.  “Avatar”,  2009.  “Beautiful visuals but forgettable story.”

2.  “The Notebook”,  2004.  “I don’t understand people who prefer Noah to Lon.  Lon was everything.”

3.  “Forrest Gump”,  1994.  “Good boy who does what he’s told gets accolades and fame, while the girl who overcomes trauma and gets into radical politics dies of AIDS.  Great message!”

4.  “La La Land”,  2016.  “None of the songs resonated or stuck with me, and the whole storyline was boring.”

5.  “Gravity”,  2013.  “As I call it: Sandra Bullock Falls for Two Hours.”

6.  “Frozen”,  2013.  “There are so many other better, similar Disney movies.  It’s, like, a 7 out of 10, not a 10 out of 10.”

7.  “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”,  1986.  “The characters are all extremely unlikable.  A friend of mine described it as being ‘extremely smug,’ which is a great description.”

8.  “Titanic”,  1997.  “It’s just a bloated, drawn-out love story whose ending was never going to be a surprise.”

9.  “The Dark Knight”,  2008.  “Nothing about it makes sense if you think more than two seconds about it.”

10.  “The Shawshank Redemption”,  1994.  “It’s a good film, but it’s the Coldplay of cinema.  If you tell me your favorite film is ‘The Shawshank Redemption’, I’m going to immediately wish I wasn’t having a conversation about cinema with you.”
