most overrated movies of 09

Quote:
These are, based on my experience and reaction, the most overrated, uninteresting, boring, Oskar Bate films of 2009. I can not grasp or even begin to fathom the praise for them.

Let it be known that I haven’t seen many non-American films this year, because, well I’m a fat American who enjoys all manner of apparatus-flung spheroids.


STAR TREK
I at least get the appeal here, I guess. I enjoy Trek as much as the next nerd, but I’m not really a fan, so that right there detracted from my enjoyment. Even taken on summer movie terms, though, I still found it boring. The production design was fantastic; all the sets, props, and costumes were a joy to look at; but I could never get over the annoying cinematography. So many cuts and close-ups! This is a very dynamic way of shooting films that is a popular trend right now, very Bourne kind of stuff, and I do not think it works for sci-fi. When there’s fantastic technological wonders zipping across the screen, explosions used like most people use punctuation, all the magic is lost. We should be able soak that stuff in, really appreciate the craft and thought gone into their design. Star Trek, to its great detriment, never lets up.

DISTRICT 9
I said all there was to say in my review already, but I think that this film and the other sci-fi duds of the year were so well received because there has been such a shortage of great films in the genre. This drought has people so thirsty that they guzzle down whatever droplets are being produced and think them to be great works.

AVATAR
This could be a trilogy of sorts. “Sci-Fi 2009: When Tastes Dilute.”

UP IN THE AIR
Jason Reitman needs to stop with the musically-edited opening credits sequences. They bother me.

UP
This is the big one. I am so baffled by this film’s love. Am I really such a bastard that I was apparently the only person not moved to tears by this aesthetically-challenged, bland, wheeze of a forgettable film? You’ve got two geezers, for all intents and purposes senile, fighting each other on top of a freaking zeppelin. This should have been incredible! But it wasn't – it was boring. Totally, unforgivably dead on the screen.

G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra....Transformers 2 is overrated I'll admit but I still liked it, and I'll admit Avatar is a bit overrated but it was still pretty cool.

all of those movies you guys listed did not receive heaps of praise, so they are not overrated. they just suck

this list is not "the worst movies of 2009," which is where you seem to be going. i enjoyed some of these movies to an extent, but they were generally extremely well-received when they deserved nothing of the sort. that's what "overrated" means

You make a good point, but most of, if not all the movies I listed were movies that recieved lots of praise at my school(by students, teachers, and the school newspaper), but I was immensely when I watched them myself

Ew, no.

GI Joe was your tyical summer action flick, except with even worse acting and story than usual. Hell, even the explosions sucked in that movie. It isn't even worthy of being on any list.

Paranormal Activity immediately comes to mind followed by The Hangover and District 9.
