    He also did Dark Shadows, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Planet of the Apes, so I stand by Batman being a decent Burton film.

    I never said Burton was great, but the man is nowhere near a bad director.

    Planet of the apes wasn't bad though. But that might be because I can't remember it. Literally the most forgetable film I've evee seen. Btw most remakes are shit can't fault burton for that.

    Burton's Planet of the Apes was horrible, you should re-watch it on a bad movie night. I fault Burton for thinking Depp could hold a candle to Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka.

    Definitely for me it's Ant Man. I don't understand why that movie got so much love. It was racist, the jokes were terrible, the action didn't start until the last 15 minutes of the movie, and the rest of it was just trying to build up Ant Man along with a stupid love interest that didn't need to be a love interest. Just a cliched, hot mess. Which is a shame because I like Ant Man the character a lot. Paul Rudd did a good job.

    Overall US-made films tend to get more exposure in the cinema, television and the critics top pics. Films made outside the US rarely get as much attention and therefore I consider them underrated.

    Star wars the force awakens. It wasn't a bad movie. I liked it a lot. But this movie is ultimatleg a horrible sequel. It doesn't give the orig trig characters much to do. The new characters arc way too fast. And it's telling the same story again. Just set... later. Stagnation. At least the prequels had a good story.. it was just buried under terrible writing and execution.

    Also clerks. Easily in my top five favorite movies. (my username actually comes from this movie ) I get that this was key's first movie and it was mad for 27,000$ but this movie... it's biggest problem is its a buddy movie and the buddy don't show up for 20 minutes.

    The first one's a guilty pleasure for me. I absolutely love the Green Goblin in the first one. Such a great performance given his silly script.

    I hated Antman. The reason why it's a hot mess is because the studio fired the original director Edgar wright(the director of some of the best comedies ever). And replaced him at the last minute.

    American sniper is easily one of the most overrated films ever. No offense to war vets but it was basically a propaganda film. The protagonist was a generic "soldier with ptsd" and little to no depth(Bradley cooper does try though). And it has one of the most fakest babies I ever seen in a movie.

    I agree, not because it's a bad film, but because of shit like this https://www.templeofthejediorder.org/ when a movie reaches religious status, it's a bit overrated.
