    well, I never really got into mafia movies all that much. I thought movies like Goodfellas, Departed, Casino, etc, were all very overrated. Worth watching, but nothing more.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Seven - overrated
    12 Monkeys - underrated

    Pulp Fiction - overrated
    Jackie Brown - underrated

    Gladiator - overrated

    There's no comparison IMO to Gladiator's overratedness.

    I always found Gone with the wind to be overrated. Same with Slumdog millionaire.

    Underrated is more challenging. Misery?

    Boyhood was over-rated. It's just another movie if you take away the time it took to film it.

    I agree Avatar was over-rated.

    There's no way that Pulp Fiction could ever be considered over-rated. One of the greatest movies of the last 25 years.

    Of course the premise of the thread is flawed--because critics differ on how highly esteemed a movie is held.

    It's really kind of hard to say, because many popular movies have both highly visible supporters and detractors.

    An example of a movie that was wildly over-praised was The Truman Show.
    An itchy trigger finger with the Report Button on speed dial.

    What others are saying about JV35:
    In His Short Time At PSD--Already Established As A Living Legend...
    A Throwback To The Days Of Honor--A True Stand Up Guy...
    The Personification Of GOAT--An American Treasure...

    I've always thought Brothers was underrated.

    Casino's got so much subtle humor in it. When they shoot Blue and the voiceover says they mistook his hero sandwich for a gun. And then the guy goes, "Gun, what gun? It's a ****in hero sandwhich." The scene when the feds land the plane on the golf course and they just scurry off after they land. I also like the scene when Pesci and the other mob guy talk with their hands over their mouths while smoking cigarettes. When Don Rickles tells the Asian gambler, "Better down here, then you know, up there." Scorsese adds a ton of humor to his movies. Pesci's always been funny in them. Goodfellas has tons of humor in it, so does the Departed.

    Obviously the clown scene in Goodfellas.
