Movies you think are overrated

Recommended Posts

Dunkirk 

 

It's a film about an event and not really about any one person or people. It's a made up of some vignettes of some people involved in this event but I didn't care for anyone. And I've seen this film on the big screen. It looks good.  But it's an action movie, with not much going on. For example, Saving Private Ryan has this story about saving one brother as the 3 other brothers have been KIA. So, there's a narrative there that's born out of the horrors of war. We're on this ride to save one life, as we've all ready lost 3 of the same family. So, it's starts off, kind of on the losing streak and this is the last hope of saving one soul. And this is carried by Hanks and his intriguing character. 

 

Dunkirk plays out like a high-level overview. You never really get close to any characters. They're all just participants in this massive event. 

 

And there's arguments that Nolan's films are all like this, with the exception of some Batman.

Overall, I think war movies are mostly overhyped and overrated. I mean there are some serious good ones out there but the genre itself is kind of overrated in my opinion.

Kill bill

 

If you take away all the pop culture references from that film it would probably be another crappy and forgettable 2000s action film.

I agree. I mean Kill Bill is theatrically good and it's pretty satisfying as a bloody, gorey action flick but other than that, I don't see much remarkable in it (aside from the pop-culture references you've mentioned). Maybe that's because I don't see much fun and eccentricity in martial arts movies. What really grinds my gears is some people treat it like Tarantino's ultimate masterpiece. I find to hard to believe when you have Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs in the picture.

The plot of reservoir dogs was literally taken from a ringo lam film called city on fire so i wouldnt exactly call it his masterpiece.

I don't like movies. I think there are too many because I often cannot view all of them.

Baby Driver. 

 

I think it's corny and predictable. Heck, I remember guessing one the lines in it. But people love it. I just couldn't take it seriously at all. 

I'm glad somebody said it, it's a stylish looking movie but the dialogue is indeed corny and the romance feels shoehorned in, the music concept on paper sounds good, but I think it relies on the ipod constantly playing as a crutch, despite good song choices it's too much of a good thing. Couldn't actually finish it, not because it's terrible but it just bored me. Overhyped because of the directors impressive record.

Ah! Someone agrees. And not just someone. Someone I respect a lot for their choice in films. 

 

I'm going to sound like a real snob but I reckon if I didn't know anything about cinema, I would enjoy it. I could see my young self probably thinking this was just an enjoyable film. I don't know how to verablise correctly how it rubbed me up the wrong way. But I found this video and he does a great job. Basically, the film is tonally all over the place.

The Dark Knight

Great movie, don’t get me wrong, just not as great as everyone makes it out to be. My main issue was the dialogue. While it was corny at times “I’m not the one wearing hockey pads”, I’m watching and thinking ‘who talks like that?’. “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain”. That line felt forced, as if they were trying to make it a memorable one. Also, having an unnecessary orchestra (or whatever) play over the top of the dialogue doesn’t make it grand.

 

Dark Knight Rises, Inception and Dunkirk come to mind too.

 

I just don’t see the big deal about Nolan movies.

Not a movie, but I never liked Mr. Robot.

 

It felt like a bad mix of Fight Club and Serial Experiments Lain.

Loved Baby Driver, I can't lie. I can understand why it wouldn't work for everyone though.

I 100% agree with you. Nolan is a mind games director. All he does is ramp up suspension and play with expectation. I liked Batman Begins and some of Dark Knight, but all in all, I'd say that trilogy was weak Batman material.

 

Forthe longest time, I avoided Inception because I have a minor dissociative disorder, and I get a lot of dream where I get stuck waking up into other dreams. I thought the movie would be one of the those movies that f*cks you up mentally. People were always talking it up making it seen like a movie you had to watch a dozen times to understand because it was a mindf*ck, and it was very dark, and very philosophical, and very this, and very that. When I finally sat down and watched Inception a couple years after the hype, I understood how everything was connected on the first pass, and I thought the movie was total Hollywood ass. There wasn't an ounce of profundity, and the dream-within-a-dream plotline literally only exists as a device for Nolan's need to play with cinematic expectation.

 

I haven't even watched Interstellar because again, it looks like Nolan is just using something that is potentially profound, and using it as just a device for doing magic tricks. Even not seeing Interstellar, I can tell you that Contact did that idea a million times better.
