Most overrated movie/actor. - Page 2

post #16 of 203
Overrated movie: Being John Malkovich. Turned it off (twice) before slogging though to the ending the next day. Not sure why I bothered.

Overrated Actor: When you disqualify ALL the celebrities and one-trick ponies masquerading as actors (such as Costner, Aniston, et al.), I think we're left with really only three true actors in the movies. Ed Norton, Nathan Lane, and Kevin Kline. I refuse to call any of these three overrated. All the rest I can live without.

I was about to name Tom Cruise for being overrated, but I liked Collateral, and have The Last Samaurai on the fixin-to-watch shelf.

I'd move it to the rather-watch-something-else shelf.

I'll raise you the entirety of the first two entries in the LOTR series, but particularly the first one. (Didn't see the third.)

The extended versions were much better, imo.

Was it that bad? I got it during a GOB sale for $3, along with around 20 other movies including Deathtrap and Spotless Mind. Of course, I have yet to touch any of those movies since buying them 3 months ago.

-10. I really liked that movie, it was what Shogun should have been had it been made into a PROPER film. But a piece of advice. Turn it off after the end of the last battle scene, because otherwise it WILL suck.

Overrated actor: Al Pacino. Esquire magazine once described his acting method as "bellowing his lines at the top of his lungs," and I haven't been able to look at him the same way since.

I have to say I enjoyed Braveheart,Shakespeare in Love,American Beauty,Schindlers List and Gladiator.

I totally dug Shakespeare in Love. Judi Dench worked hard for her oscar.

You mean it doesn't portray an accurate description of the Meiji Restoration?

I was almost going to put Pacino in as overrated, but I always look at him as the "before Scent of a Woman Al Pacino" (Godfathers I and II, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon) and the "after Scent of a Woman Al Pacino" (where he's basically played the same character over and over - though Heat was a good film, if a bit long).

Adaptation. I watched it a couple weeks ago, and I still don't feel right. And I'm with JBZ as to Pacino: I think Godfather II is one of the best movies of all time.
