      The luster of edgy Nolan batman movies has significantly worn off, most people now see them as the pretentious tryhard "THIS AIN'T YOUR DADDY'S BATMAN, THIS IS REAL KINO" type shit they've always been.

    • 4 weeks ago

      The issue is that the performances (well one performance really) is the only thing that elevate them above 6/10 capeshit movies.
      The plot(s) are all pretty basic and/or moronic and the batsuit looks like fricking garbage, add to this that the movies are le edgy dark bamham and you've got 3 pretty annoying movies.
      Heath Ledgers performance as The Funnyman is the best part and Tom Hardy as Beefcake is so bad it's good, but nothing else really stands out about the films.
      Nolan is, and always was, the most mediocre director.

      That's one hundred percent why Lebowski is there. People go in expecting a traditional movie and think 'that's it?' when it's over, but it's actually about The Dude's philosophy, which is why it ends when it shows that his philosophy remains intact after everything that happens. I think it was Nostalgia Critic that put it that way.

This is probably way worse for people who consider themselves critics of whatever medium they are talking about. I'm sure deep down he knows it's a good movie but he just can't let himself enjoy it because it would mean he's just like everyone else.

      I really miss this era of James. He actually had well thought out points, and was clearly making content he was invested in. It was very comfy, even if it wasn't peak AVGN. Honestly though, I kinda prefer this more chill content to how overblown AVGN gets.

    Citizen Kane is post-overrated at this point. It's not underrated, it's just gone beyond overrated into some sort of new territory.
    Citizen Kane is a genuinely brilliant movie. Not just for the camera work or the technical stuff, but for its story. It's engaging, it's exciting. It's a great movie. The original tag line on the posters was "everybody's talking about it! It's terrific!" yet you would never believe that from hearing how people talk about it.
    Eventually the praise became so intense that it was placed on a pedestal even it couldn't live up to. It became overrated. People talk about Citizen Kane like its an impenetrable art film that couldn't be understood by the common man, and needed hours upon hours of analysis.
    Yet by now, so many people have said it's overrated that it's not even a contrarian take anymore. The rest of the movies on this list might make some people angry, but saying Citizen Kane is overrated is now the common mans opinion. Everybody thinks Citizen Kane is overrated, you're not special.
    The result is, every so often people watch Citizen Kane for the first time, they're shocked to discover it's actually great. The acting is all top-notch. It definitely deserved its reputation, it deserved to be a critical darling.
    So... what is it? It's not overrated, it's not underrated, and it's not perfectly rated where it should be either. It's an enigma.

    Is it fair to call something overrated if it was historically important and significant at the time of release?

    Yeah, some of these movies might not be great now but a lot of that is due to either the amount of movies that have been influenced by it and/or ripped off or just pop culture spoiling it. I imagine if you never saw the big lebowski before and your exposure is seeing people quote and meme it a ton it's probably not gonna be that enjoyable or something like sixth sense which somewhat hinges on it's twist but literally everyone knows the twist whether they saw it or not.

      I would say that if a movie hinges on you not knowing the twist, it's not a good movie. A well-written movie with a twist will still be enjoyable on a rewatch. In fact a well-written twist movie is often more enjoyable when rewatching since you can now apply the context of the twist to everything you are seeing and notice things you didn't before.

    The Dark Knight is capeshit trash for midwits, he is absolutely right on that one.
    I also agree with A Christmas Story (it's pleasant, but nothing incredible) and Titanic (the spectacle is good, but holy frick is that love story completely uninteresting). Maybe The Sixth Sense although I don't think many people nowadays would call it a masterpiece, just a good movie. Donnie Darko is just okay but also it's not even THAT popular.
    Rest I disagree with. Like The Matrix is not a film I personally adore, but I completely understand it's popularity and why so many people think it's a 10/10. Same with The Godfather Part II even if I myself prefer the first one, and also believe that Once Upon A Time in America is overall a better mafia film.

        I like Burton's Batman films.
        My issue with The Dark Knight is it's overall approach. It's so fricking serious. And maybe it could've worked if the film was stylish, but it wasn't. Every time I see people compare The Dark Knight to Mann's Heat I am shocked. Nolan's movie is utterly drab and styleless, I genuinely have no idea what people see in that generic bullshit. Only thing it has going for itself is Ledgers performance and some decent stunt work / practical effect use.

            I am genuinely baffled by the acclaim of The Dark Knight. I literally see no difference between it and some of the more serious MCU films. It looks like a tailor made studio product, yet people constantly say how fricking cool and innovative Nolan was by making a "serious" comic book movie, an "auteur blockbuster". Maybe I'm fricking blind or crazy.

      La Dolce Vita and Amarcord are better Fellini films but 8 1/2 is his most fundamental one.

          It's where he perfected his overall "stream" style. Where the events just flow, with things getting progressively more surreal, and any semblance of plot just sorta disappearing. This is something that became very influential in the long term. But I can see why someone would dislike the style, or specifically the way it was used in 8 1/2 considering that movie was very much Fellini self-reflecting. Amarcord is similar and also autobiographical, but has broader appeal because it's not specifically focused on the filmmaking process as a subject matter.

            I see. I understand the boldness and inventiveness of it, the meta-commentary and so on. The problem is that the concept doesn't work, because as a viewer you will construct a narrative out of an anti-narrative to a certain extent. But that's all intellectual. The movie itself is a drag. It's funny that a hack like Tarantino then would utilize this to pretty good effect in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

              I thought 8 1/2 was very engaging because the subject matter is interesting to me. Try La Dolce Vita or Amarcord, I think these are also incredible films and you might like them more because of broader appeal.
              Neorealist Fellini is also pretty good, Nights of Cabiria, La Strada. He has a lot of stuff worth watching but the three masterpiece of his for me are still La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2 and Amarcord.

                I've seen all the ones you named except Amarcord. I'll watch it some time. I love La Strada. I think it's a perfect film.

    Not with Citizen Kane, even his reasoning tells me he had some pretty weak film professors. The rest are legitimately overrated in the grand scheme of this art form.

      Citizen Kane was routinely called the best movie ever made. That's grounds on its own for being called overrated.

          There is no greatest movie. The category doesn't make any sense. It's film reviewer mental detritus that shouldn't be given any attention. Art isn't a democracy and you don't get to vote on what's best. Citizen Kane may belong, likely does belong, in a conversation about what makes film great art and what qualities define that. Calling it le best ever! is overrated by default before any other comment can be made.

            When people talk about cinema such a category inevitably appears. Yes, there's no "objective" best film ever, but there are films that attract the most amount of fans among the people generally interested in cinema as an artform. And while it's not "objective" it is still interesting to study what films attract the most people. The voting process by which CK usually got the first place wasn't actually people asking what specific movie you ("you" being usually a film critic or a filmmaker) think is the best film of all time.
            Instead various critics and filmmakers provided their personal top 10s of favorite movies, and Citizen Kane managed to appear the most amount of times in such lists.

              Yes, the question comes up because people make favourites lists and then we use the process to make a vote. All that tells us is that Citizen Kane is recognized as being special or particular. It would be very difficult to say that x is the most interesting or appealing movie, though. This changes quite a lot, depending on the group, depending on the nation state, etc. And when people say x is the best movie ever made, they don't mean "x is the best movie ever made as compiled by a numbered list of favourite movies blah blah blah". As I said, these particular movies give us a way to talk about what makes film great art. There's no singular peak to that mountain, and even if we believed there were one or could be one, it wouldn't be discovered or scaled democratically.

    No. Because American Beauty, Gravity and Crash are omitted. He's just another nobody looking for clicks.

    Yes except Godfather 2. It’s true kino levels above everything else on the list. But nothing is more overrated than Dark Knight. Heaths performance was fine but it wouldn’t have been as big if they didn’t kill him first. Bale is both the worst Batman with that voice and the worst Wayne with that stupid ass lisp.

    >overrated movie list
    Let’s be honest and just start calling them ‘salty b***h’s insecurity list’. Your idea on how something is rated is completely relative, the only way you can even have a list like this is if you hold a vendetta against your idea of the public over something being less fun than you thought

    This list feels outdated now. We live in a post-George Floyd world where it's not okay to express film bro opinions like "Pulp Fiction is the greatest movie ever made" anymore.

    When I was 20 a local theatre showed classics every week. I didn't expect anything from Citizen Kane but it was my favourite by far.

      The vast majority of movies pre-70s have really substandard pacing and blocking by modern standards, so when you see one that's actually good, it really stands out.

    most of these were successful because they not "overrated" but both popular with people and people liked to pay for them. while other may don't like this does make them "overrated "
    except donnie darko which was more popular than people were actual willing to pay for it and even worse with the sequel
