Why is Goonies on that list? Goonies is still fun to watch today. His reasons for it aging poorly are P.C. culture? Pshhhh.
Six Sense on the list? NO WAY. that movie was popular for a very good reason. He says its too simple of a twist and most people had it figured out after the first chapter. No way. Everyone I knew said they didn't catch the clues until the rewatch -- myself included.
The other one I can't agree with on his list is Ferris Bueller's day off. That's still fun to watch today in the same way it was back then.


You want a movie that's over-rated? How about Transformers Bumblebee.


---- or maybe it's just that we like the films from our youth?

Ferris Bueller was influential, the last part of Deadpool was an FB joke.

So is this the new 'let's poop on movies other people like' thread?... Ok, I'm in then! Need to vent a little. (Thank you to Art S.)

Agree with Blair Witch and Knocked Up (even though I like K. Heigl).

Ones I either haven't seen or don't remember (and consequently probably have no great desire to see (again?)) include...

The Notebook
The Big Lebowski
Napoleon Dynamite
Inception
Gravity
The Hangover
Cast Away
Black Panther
The Goonies
Mulholland Drive

Ones I disagree with...

Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Avatar
The English Patient
Top Gun
A Clockwork Orange
Love Actually
Crash
Dead Poets Society
Field of Dreams
Braveheart
The Breakfast Club
Moulin Rouge!
The Sixth Sense
Annie Hall
Forrest Gump
Twilight
Shakespeare in Love
Citizen Kane

I didn't necessarily like all of the above (e.g. Avatar). But I don't think most of them were especially over-rated for what they were. Some of the above, such as Twilight, Top Gun, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, were just good schlocky/popcorn type movies. Others, such as Citizen Kane, A Clockwork Orange, and yes, even Avatar, were genuinely ground-breaking movies.

Some may not have aged as well as others. And you may or may not like some of them. But all are at least worth a look imo.

I think Get Out and Black Panther were both very fine films that I really enjoyed.

But I felt the fawning over them reached absurd levels that I fell for. I couldn't help being a bit disappointed in them when they didn't live up to the hype (which really, nothing could).

I understand the cultural significance, but in my case the histrionic praise didn't do the films any favors, which is a shame.

CG action flicks aren't generally my thing. I wouldn't mind seeing BP though at some point, after the hype has wound significantly down.

Loved this movie! And went back to see it a couple times in the theater when it was originally released. It has some weak points though imo. As much as I liked Crowe in this, I thought he did a better job in Master & Commander.

I didn't hate BR, but I didn't love it either. It is a good movie to put on if you have insomnia. As much as I love the Indiana Jones and Han Solo characters, Harrison Ford is a really boring actor.

Most of the other films mentioned can depend on personal opinion. But is a fact that Gravity is overrated.

Bad science, bad physics, a heroine who's an incompetent basket case idiot who'd never get hired to run a lemonade stand let alone NASA, accomplishes everything by luck, and the typical feel good ending. If you want to see a good space film see Apollo 13. Even Space Cowboys as bad as it is is better than Gravity.

Nice slam. Lol. I agree, don't forget it also puts out a continuous low bass rumble from the subwoofers, that in the end becomes annoying.

I don't think the quality of the audio or video of the movie has anything to do with the quality of the film itself.

Gravity at reference volume level with a competent Atmos audio system is still to this day, a top three A/V experience.

The other two IMO, would be Blade Runner 2049, and Spider-Man: Into the SpiderVerse.

These are not my three favorite movies overall, but man is the A/V experience amazing!!!

Everyone I’ve showed Gravity to on my system has said its incredible, and probably one of, if not their defining best cinema experiences.

You wouldn’t get that same reaction on a TV and a soundbar. The full A/V experience certainly can elevate the enjoyment of a particular movie.

(I’m not commenting on your system here. I don’t even know what it is. I’m just pointing out that Gravity has its place — Its perhaps the best cinema experience I’ve ever had and I’ll nearly always offer it as an option for guests...I’ve had no one express anything close to disappointment with it — from my showings)

I would imagine that Gravity, Inception, Black Panther, Avatar and maybe also Top Gun are great watches on a good HT system.

But you can separate great watches on a good HT system from good movies. I saw plenty of amazing movies on a 20 inch TV. I have also seen countless in my theater that look and sound good but do not compare.

I do agree with a prior poster, just rename this to crap all over good movies list.

Of the original group from that article I will agree with one for now. Blair Witch, total crap and not scary. I was hoping the witch would get them sooner to end my misery of watching it. How many times can the girl scream Josh? Answer: too many.

I actually like the Twilight movies. I've watched the whole set a number of times. Being a pathetic romantic (which is easier when you don't have to deal with the reality of actual relationships) I get it. Of course my Kristen Stewart fetish may play into it somewhat as well.

Those are all reasons why it is not realistic but that has no bearing on whether it is a good movie or not.

Ummm

No

You need to revisit your subwoofer configuration/calibration. The LFE track in Gravity is pretty amazing. Heck the whole film soundtrack is pretty much as good as it gets. Incredible dynamics, emotional compositions, strong use of LFE (filtered below 20Hz — but hey that’s better than filtered at 30Hz) to instill fear and emotion...

Maybe it’s not realistic — but still a treat to listen to. I’ll play the dynamic orchestra intro to Gravity at reference and I dare you not to get goosebumps!
