I agree that five of these films were overrated, and I didn't see one of them, so I think it's a good list. I most agree with Avatar, which I gave a 4/10; I can't stand most James Cameron movies and this was no different. 'Good poll, Elmo.

Surprisingly, that was the only Cameron movie I enjoyed besides T2: Judgement Day. Even I don't like much of his work. He's more into creating something spectacular and I'm more into simplicity, I guess!

I actually agree with a lot of these but looking at MOST overrated, I seriously could just never get into The Matrix (1999). I don't think Ebert liked it either, which allows me some solace but I found it mind-numbing and certainly not worthy of the 250 list. Oh well, C'est La Vie, right Elmo?

The film is in my watchlist so I don't think I'll be able to expose a judgment right now, but I have a hunch it wouldn't be my most overrated movie from that list (there are already some good candidates)

While I can't really stand HuffPo; I will agree that those movies are overrated. My vote will go to Drive.

I have missed two of the eight films. I disagree with Drive, which I liked a lot. The rest of them I agree are somewhat overrated, but not that much. The only exception is The Hurt Locker, one of the most boring Oscar winners I have ever seen. I just watched the backward counts of the days he had left in Iraq hoping to see the count get to zero, and when the film kept going after that I became desperate.
