There are a lot of overrated movies in my opinion, just as there are a lot of underrated movies. I've got five that in my own opinion are completely overrated.
Honestly name a James Cameron Movie after Terminator 2: Judgement Day (a film that until Mad Max Fury Road was the best action movie ever made) and it's overrated, his work has GONE WAY downhill. However I put this one up there because this is one of the highest grossing movies of all time. What is it? Its a fucking chick flick, don't pretend like this is some cinematic masterpiece, it is and always will be a big budget chick-flick.
This movie not only got best special effects the year the far superior in special effects film PACIFIC RIM was released but its got no real draw beyond, oh pretty. On top of that, my understanding is that the amount of damage sandra bullock causes trying to return to earth to the point where it'd have been fifty years before we could do more space exploration, we would have been better off if she and clooneys characters just resigned themselves to dying in space. If your supposed to be happy ending fucks over all but two characters out of the human race then the fact is ITS NOT A FUCKING HAPPY ENDING.
3. Full Metal Jacket
Now don't get me wrong I LIKE Full Metal Jacket and only half of this movie is overrated. The first half of the movie and the second half of the movie are almost like two separate films in the way that they are SO different but they are not only different but the first half is MUCH better than the second half. The second half is good, the first half is a masterpiece. So this movie is only partially overrated.
And to its credit the second half does have this scene
