Movies People Love But I Don't Care For

I will continually add to the list. I am not saying these movies are horrible (with a few exceptions), they are just overrated in my opinion.

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
After Peter Parker is bitten by a genetically altered spider, he gains newfound, spider-like powers and ventures out to solve the mystery of his parent's mysterious death. (136 mins.)
Director: Marc Webb
“ This is one of those exceptions. Even if we ignore the fact that the remake was needless, it is still a downright boring movie with no climax or emotion. But everyone went freaking wild over it and I don't see why. I didn't see it in 3D so maybe that was it (if a gimmick like 3D is what makes a movie good then that is just sad). I honestly can't recommend ever watching it, it depresses me that this is the new spiderman. ” - philjones602

Avatar (2009)

A paraplegic marine dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission becomes torn between following his orders and protecting the world he feels is his home. (162 mins.)
Director: James Cameron
“ Again, it's the 3D issue. I was wowed in the movies because yes, the 3D was great. Other than that it was boring and I have yet to make it through a home viewing without turning it off. Worth renting and watching, but don't go into it with unrealistic expectations. ” - philjones602

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
Rescued from the outrageous neglect of his aunt and uncle, a young boy with a great destiny proves his worth while attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. (152 mins.)
Director: Chris Columbus
“ Really it's the first 5 movies I think are overrated. They are for people who have read the books...I think movies should be accessible for people who haven't read the books too, but still does the book justice. I get bored with all of them, until the last three movies. I personally LOVE the The Deathly Hallows Movies, and I still still think the entire series is an accomplishment, just overrated. Still worth watching. ” - philjones602
 
4.
Midnight in Paris (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
While on a trip to Paris with his fiance's family, a nostalgic screenwriter finds himself mysteriously going back to the 1920s everyday at midnight. (94 mins.)
Director: Woody Allen
“ I don't really see the appeal to this movie. Everyone loved it and I just couldn't get into it mainly because I didn't care for the characters. They were all selfish. I had no connection to them and no emotion. This was critically acclaimed and loved by the audience, so maybe I had too high of expectations, but I personally just couldn't get into it at all. ” - philjones602
