Friday Bottom 3: Overrated Movies

The criteria I used for this list is that the movie is a stinker but is considered by movie experts to be a classic, or that it won many awards, or that the average joe thinks it is a great movie.

#3. Scarface – I am not a fan of Brian De Palma. The only film which he directed that I really enjoyed was The Untouchables. Scarface is one of his films that I just cannot stand. You must completely suspend reality and endure hundreds of swear words. The acting and drama is just way over the top and the action is unbelievable. I just don’t get the fascination with this film.

#2. Easy Rider – I guess you need to have been a hippie or wannabe hippie to really enjoy this garbage. The dialogue and acting is boring, in my opinion. The whole point of this stinker which many of the critics place in their lists of great American movies seems to be the trip across country on choppers. The man is trying to keep me down!

#1. Titanic – Wow, this one is one that I guess I will never understand. It’s loooooooooong and boring, so it made a pile of cash. The first 3 or 4 times I tried to watch it, I fell asleep 20 or 30 minutes in. As far as I am concerned, you can fast forward to the last 30 minutes and enjoy the ship sinking, because that is the best part.
