1. Wonder Woman
2. Beauty and the Beast
3. Fast and Furious 8

They're all shit.

I enjoyed Get Out, but it is definitely overrated. It has no right being the best reviewed "horror" film ever.

Luckily it is not: http://www.metacritic.com/browse/movies ... =condensed


From what I've seen so far of 2017 movies:
Beauty and the Beast
Wonder Woman
Logan
The Lego Batman
John Wick: Chapter 2
Get Out

All of these are HIGHLY overrated.

Is Beauty and the Beast that highly rated? It only has 71% at RT and in the 60s at MC. It's not like anyone besides hardcore Disney fans (like myself) were proclaiming it the best film ever.

The reception on the BO (who the f*** went to watch it week after week????) makes it overrated IMHO. It hugely broke out as if it was some must see movie. When in fact it's borderline terrible.

It deserves 0% so yes I'd say it's overrated.

Wonder Woman is solid but overrated.

I couldn't think of a film at first, but that would be solidly on the top of my list (too) as most overrated.

Dunkirk

93% on RT. :funny:

It's only a matter of time until Dunkirk takes its rightful place as an all-time classic case study on groupthink.

Agree. Followed by the 92% obtained by Wonder Woman. Another prime example of groupthink.

Wonder Woman: Good, but not "OMG it's life-changing!!!!" either.

Guardians 2: the Ghostbusters 2 of the Marvel Universe. I still do not understand why so many gave it a pass.

Baby Driver: Starts great, gets progressively worse. The last 20 minutes or so are near-bad.

For me it's easily Wonder Woman and that's mostly because of how much I just didn't like it. Sure their are others like Baby Driver, Dunkirk and even Get Out, but at least I liked those movies to some degree.

War for the Planet of the Apes is gawdawful - not worthy to carry the Planet of the Apes name - 93% on RT is a joke.

Get Out is simultaneously a decent, modest, at times clever horror movie and incredibly overrated. I bet it winds up nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars.

Get Out was decent, but I saw the twist and heavy handed message coming a mile away.

Wonder Woman for me. There are others link Dunkirk, GotG2, John Wick 2, Kong but the WW gets it by a mile. I do think BatB was slightly overrated as well but not because of its BO.

I be surprised if it does. When was the last time a horror film got nominated for Best Picture? Silence of the Lambs?

Wonder Woman, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and Baby Driver off the top of my head. Did I mention Baby Driver? Well I feel I need to mention Baby Driver one more time due to all the fawning I've seen from the internet generation over it.

I don't think Get Out will get nominated for Best Picture though it could get a few nominations.
