    ^Garden State is overrated indeed.

    I think I'll put Citizen Kane as overrated...I've never seen it but, any movie where it's raved about endlessly is automatically put on the overrated list.

    Okay. I'm going to put the Departed. Don't get me wrong, it's very good but not mindblowing like how everyone's making it out to be

    I've never fully understood the appeal of Donnie Darko...

    I've never understood the appeal of any of Jake Gyllenhaal's movies.

    The Usual Suspects. O-V-E-R-R-A-T-E-D. (Although Kevin Spacey was great in it.)

    Garden State. Blech. Tried way too hard to be clever and quirky...and failed. It was so annoyingly pretentious.

    Donnie Darko. See above.

    Run Lola Run. Liked it the first time I saw it, but this so does not deserve to be in imdb's top 250.

    ^ a lot of movies that are in imdb's top 250 don't deserve to be there.

    Oh yes, I definetily agree. Most of those movies are there because of these "movie nerds" ie young men whose appreciation involves a lot of computerized effects on films and whose knowledge of the history of cinema starts from mid-70s early 80s. It's sad.

    ^ Well, award shows in general and especially the Academy Awards do not tell anything about quality, just about star power and hype. Why should we even follow them...

    I liked Crash...but what other Hollywood picture has been better than that this year in your opinion? I am respecting your opinion, but I am curious to hear more about your opinion :flower:

    Citizen Kane was great by modern standards, I'm sure it was MINDBLOWING when it first came out! Fabulous movie :heart:

    I'll say that Schindler's List is overrated.

    Crash--i'm sure many will disagree but i thought it was one of the most overrated movies of all time and its a shame that something so primitively preaching and self-indlging would ever win an oscar. the moral and the way they portrayed it was too shove-down-the-throat obvious and lacked any kind of subtlety whatsoever. it was not a movie that would truly make people relate more to one another but rather a movie that would make people feel sorry for themselves and ignite even more intolerance. just hated hated hated it.

    i also do not think it possible to overrate a film like Schindler's List, honestly, overrated does not apply here in my opinion, with all due respect to others' opinions of course.
