Add most of the Disney Pixar Movies.

GWH to a small extent
He Got Game
Dangerous Minds
Lord of the Flies (old)
Natural Born Killers

I'm not saying it's bad, I like it too, but it is WAY overrated. Currently, it is #2 on the IMDB top 250 and it is not even close to that.

I think it's overrated as well. A lot of people call it one of the best films ever made, I think it's good but not THAT good.


"The Fifth Element" is the perfect sf-action film to me. I'd call it more a guilty pleasure than underrated though.

Obviously, if Shawshank is #2. It effectively proves my point though, the general public is in love with this movie when really, it is just a pretty good movie. Not great a movie. Not even close.

Shawshank is a great movie.

Scarface is so overrated though. I cant watch that movie because it is so boring.

Memento is very underrated.
