I'm going to say every majorly hyped movie ever. Except The Wrath of Khan. Specifically, I'd vote for Pete Jackson's Lord of the Rings.

Worst movie was Imitation of Life. It had nothing to do with the undead.

Anything by the guys who did Epic Movie and Scary Movie.

Seriously, who would want to produce a movie by them after Scary Movie 2?

Yeah, but those have never been rated highly at all. Also, 3 & 4, the ones by Airplane! guy, they weren't bad.

But I know what you mean. I feel like that with Uwe Boll movies. They can be mildly amusing, if you're past a certain level of intoxication, but why do video game companies keep giving him the rights to their stories? I mean, damn.

I still think the first matrix film is the best (and the only "good" one).

I get the impression that they sold out just by making the other two, and didnt even care about it. Several lines in the first film are incompatible with the other films, due to the latter being significantly dumbed down, ie. the EMP being "our only defense..." in the fist film when clearly the ship has .50 cals as well in the others.

I'm also intriuged by how religous influence is suggested throughout all of the films by characters taking up God's name in vain, and by the terrible choice of a name for the city yet this in not taken any further.

the most over rated movie series is the friday the 13th collection


it isn't the content that makes it over rated it is the fact that there are 12 of them

however the special edition 13th one I might watch because it will be the 13th 13th

The Godfather. Great movie, but not worth the accolade.
