Shrek 3 is a good movie.

Jaws 2 has one of the most underrated John Williams soundtracks out there. Almost every piece in this score is awesome, and it’s a film I’m glad exists because of the score.

I agree the score is great its the only thing i find worthwhile about that film.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is massively overrated. It’s oversimplistic, repetitive, and a bit boring; it doesn’t have much of an actual story beyond spoiled brats touring the factory and getting killed off in various ways. As someone who’s read most of Roald Dahl’s books, it’s easily one of the poorer entries in his canon.

James and the Giant Peach is similarly overrated.

Gone with the Wind is severely overrated, and either Wizard of Oz or Stagecoach should have won Best Picture that year. None of the main characters are likeable in any way, and Scarlett is just as big a self-centered bitch as Bella from Twilight.

The problem i have with Oz though is that Dorothy was bonked on the head and it was a dream, without Oz being a real place, a secondary universe the myth is shattered. Film is almost perfect for me but for the ending.

In Baum just like Middle Earth it exists as a real world, or like Wonderland does in the Alice books.

The prequels are in fact worse than the sequels. Jar-Jar Binks, Anakin, midicholorians and some of the worst dialogue ever put to film are why the prequels are not good films.

Not only is Fortnite seriously overrated, the reason it’s worse than Hong Kong '97 or the NES Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde game is that it attempts and succeeds at selling gambling to kids. That is obviously immoral of anyone to do.
