There can't really be an order.
features only movies I've seen at least twice
In my opinion, most movies described as "overrated" just don't match the author's taste. If a movie earns a high reputation or a big box-office success, then it usually deserves it in some way. However, there are a few films that gained a cult or even classic status while not being very exciting, funny, intelligent, inventive or whatever makes a good movie.
With 'underrated', I refer to the movies that
- lost/never gained publicity
- are well-known but slated by critics
- were flops at the box-office
and, of course, didn't deserve to.
