Overrated Movies Thread.

Just finished watching Arrival because of all the hype i have seen on this website and it was a huge letdown. Wasn't anywhere near as mind blowing complex as people made it out to be, it was maybe slightly above average overall.

Have people really become this dumb down that they think this was mind bending?

agreed. i thought it was a good movie, but it made such a big deal out of the twist about the kid when it was pretty obvious from about 15 mins in. ending was like being hit with a sledgehammer repeatedly that it even had a 'twist', when it could have dealth with the comprehension and acceptance of it instead

it's not about what happens in the movie that makes it so great, it is the time ramifications if you think about it after the movie.

Movie is kino though

I saw it without knowing what to expect, and I loved it, but yea I get what you are saying. The twist was kinda cool but definitely not complex or "mind boggling". I just thought it was well done and entertaining. I liked how they built anticipation throughout the movie and how they represented a possible alien life form. The twist was just a bonus. It's not an intelligent movie, like Interstellar was.

I mean, it was on big action movie/chase scene and the visuals were great, I'll give it that. But that's almost all I'll give it.

The "twist" was awfully predictable (Charlize Theron's family being dead already and back at that wasteland place they went to)

Mad Max felt big time neutered in this movie. Why is our first reintroduction to this classic character him basically getting his ass whupped by a buncha guys? Talk about a limp dick intro.

That's like reintroducing Luke Skywalker in Episode 8 with 20 guys mobbing him and making him look like a bitch. Weak.

Again, on the same point, Mad Max didn't really feel like the star of the show very much. Charlize Theron nearly upstaged him.

Mad Max barely spoke. I understand what they're going for but it's still disappointing to have him come off as a mute.

I'm not that poster but the science behind interstellar was very spot on. They hired lots of leaders in physics and theoretical physics for the job. The part where a wormhole is spherical instead of an actual hole is a very recent scientific theory with plausible calculations backing it up. The light around the black hole that jetted off almost like an arrow is also based on data and science based theories.

the stock market scenes and area around the stock market, was across from the real stock market, filmed at 23 wall. i worked in 15 broad, which is joined to it. since i had the master keys, i could walk through this really cool abandoned bank vault area underground and get onto the set.

I like how he used time dilation and general relativity in the story, and created a closed loop with the story that almost seems like a paradox but it isn't. I like how he used the concept of a black hole to create that loop, which is scientifically not-impossible except for the small minor detail of being shredded into a million pieces within a few hundred thousand miles of an actual black hole. But still, it was relatively "realistic" compared to other sci-fi movies.

I have to wonder if there are simply things which only a specific generation will grasp due soley to the circumstance in which they live and the only bearing to life they have. This could easily lead to other generations seeing the media of that time, or even now as being idiotic, boring, or uneventful. Yet to those who have lived reverences to the tales, it is impactful.

There are people who will soon be adults that were not alive in the 1900s.

Maybe were past that point where this is stunning, but fuck I'm getting old.
