Top Five Most Overrated Films

1. Lord of The Rings – all three of them
There as so many words for this. Awlful. And every other synonym for it. I'm all for novels coming to the big screen – One Flew, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1984 are excellent – but this film wasn't long enough to do the text justice and was far too long for the average attention span.

2. Star Wars – All of them
OK, there were a couple of good lines, but that's it. Otherwise everyone who paid to watch this did a service in giving life to a cow, a giant cash cow that was milked by Luke Skywalker or whatever movie studio made this.

3. The Exorcist
The subtle analysis of Catholocism is Brighton Rock was easy enough to see, but whatever there was here passed way over my head. Otherwise, there's not much point in a horror film if not scary or scarily funny or has a Jack Nicholson-esque performance as in the Shining.

4. Moulin Rouge
Have nothing against musicals per se, the Madness one sounds quite good. But filling a film with awlful music is murder.

5. Farenheit 911
A craze against mass corporate culture has turned into mass corporate culture but Michael Moore's one-side vitriolic rants only hint at the truth and are about as balanced as the Sun's coverage of asylum seekers.
