    It can be movies from this past year or just any you've seen.

    I'll start...

    Overrated: I'm going to get murdered for saying this but one of the most overrated films I've seen is "Inception." Now, that is not to say that the film was bad; it just didn't impact me as it seemed to have on many people.

    Underrated: Young Adult. I guess I favor the dry and sarcastic humor. I really loved this movie and I think it's completely underrated.

    I've always thought titanic was overrated. maybe it's cause my mom showed it to me when i was young and i vaguely remembered the ending the next time i watched it.

    On the other hand I really liked the curious case of benjamin button while others thought it was boring. Also I find little miss sunshine a little underrated.

    Underrated: Jeepers Creepers is actually really good, or at least the first half is. The second half is really bad unfortunately. Also Return of the Sith is really not that bad, people just lump it in with the first two which are bad.

    Overrated: There are lots of bad James Bond films and they should have stopped making them by now. Batman Begins was pretty silly as well. He is dressed up as a giant bat, why try to make such a serious film? At the end of the day he is still a man dressed as a bat which is inherently silly.

    I'd like to add Skyfall and Moonrise Kingdom to the overrated list. I did enjoy Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox, though.

    Oh yeah The Wicker Man is great. The first time I finished watching that I just pressed play again straight away. Makes you a bit scared of morris dancers though.

    As a Welshman, Morris dancing has always terrified me.

    overrated: probably the Fast & THe Furious movies. I'll be honest, sitting in the parkinglot afterward and watching people make asses of themselves in minivans and hacked-up Civics is more entertaining than the movies.

    underrated: Cats Don't Dance, The Majestic, Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day, Mr. Wrong (w/ Ellen DeGeneres), My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Somewhere In Time

    Overrated:

    I'd have to say Avatar, since that one made so money, and it was a rip-off of so many other movies.

    Underrated:

    Anything that I like that nobody else does.
