    Ill go first. American Hustle. Now, while I think the plot is well designed, the performances are stellar and cinematically it is beautiful it just feels over stylized and pretentious. Maybe I am watching it wrong though. Maybe it's meant to just play in the background.

    I definitely found Chicago overrated. In fact it in some ways reminded me of American Hustle in that is was over stylized and pretentious.

    I thought it was okay, but wouldn't watch again.

    The Avenger movies were all shit imo, and most of the recent Marvel ones except Deadpool, Homecoming and Logan.

    Justice League, Aquaman and WW were all shit. Not even close to being as good as the Nolan trilogy. Hope they make a good Flash movie.

    I agree, looked great, good acting, but might be the dullest subject matter I've watched for a long time.

    And I watch some shit

    In recent years

    Black Panther - did not give a shit about anyone
    Thor Ragnarok - Your're fucking kidding me
    It - you can kiss my arse with your big shaky clown head
    John Wick 2 - Couldn't get past the 40 minute mark
    Drive - who's gonna driver you hooooome, tonight? You can fucking walk
    Moneyball - boy that was interesting
    Django Unchained - would have preferred to sit through 2 1/2 hours of the opening mountain views
    Conjuring and all of the shit that followed it
    Gone Girl - wish she'd never showed up in the first place

    Get Out. It was ok but I didn't think it deserved all the praise it got. I liked the trailer for the guy's new film though so I'm looking forward to watching that one.

    Baby Driver. The way people raved about this I was expecting something on the level of Heat. Turned out it was some of the dumbest shit I've seen in a long time.

    John Wick. Didn't get what the hype about that movie was at all. Keanue Reeves cannot act.

    {<doc}really!? Then again that movie was like a defining movie of my childhood so maybe I'm biased.

    While I think the MCU is in so many ways overrated I have to credit Iron Man with creating the overall defining tone of film in general for an entire decade. I like WW a lot.

    I never heard of it but perhaps I shouldn't check it out.

    I really like the surreal experience of natural born killers I really liked the editing. I found it disturbing. Never saw American Me and I found Inception and Black Panther to be overrated too.

    LOL! Agreed. Although their are a couple scenes where that one chick looks like she might be the hottest chick of all time.

    Pretty much agree with that entire list except for Drive, as I havn't seen it. Gone girl though I LOVED that film. The soundtrack and viewing experience is intense.

    IDK what JW2 of DH3 are.

    Are you kidding me!?

    I love those ones but I can definitely see Inception and Pulp Fiction being on peoples lists. I do think Inception is overrated though.

    {<doc} I'll agree with American Pie.

    John Wick was just mindless entertainment but it wasn't bad. Baby Driver I never heard of and I though Get Out was good but overrated as well.

    You are. It needed an hour cut from it -like all the "Forrest was pivotal to this moment in history, too" bloat

    I felt like it was the catalyst for me to learn about a bunch of those things as a kid and to connect with my parents as they told me about it. It was cheesy though but I felt it pulled it off.
