    Why are people hating on Alien? Classic sci-fi with Sigourney Weaver? No?

    Terminator 2 and Diehard are already in the Hall of Shame whilst the Hangover is in the Hall of Fame (not yet updated I see) so it wouldn't surprise me if a classic like Alien went the same way.

    This thread also shows TDK remains overrated I also think LOTR is vastly overrated (besides the battles, it's wooden characters just walking and walking and walking; ironically the most human character is a CGI one) but I suppose I can see the nostalgia of it due to how long of a period it dominated people's childhoods.

    WHAT?!?!? The Dark Knight OVERATED!, OK I see your point with LOTR, but come on. Although I will agree some points are flawed, it has been the greatest of these 21st century super-hero reboots by a long margin. The Shawshank Redeption is very much overated!

    I enjoyed the first one more, Batman Begins.
    TDK is long and has an unnecessarily convoluted plot. They should've shaved about 25 minutes off the movie. It starts off so well and moves along nicely, but around the middle or two-thirds in it just gets very baggy. Then you have that stupid typical Hollywood boat scene. Yes it was good and I enjoyed it in the cinema overall, but it was only memorable due to Heath Ledger's death. People place it in their all-time list which is why I think it's overrated.

    The Avengers is the older film of the same name. That's why in England it was released as Marvel Avengers Assemble to avoid confusion.
