Live Poll: Most Overrated Movie of 2019

It is about to end this 2019, it has left us great movies, but since the cinema is subjective we probably found them overrated movies. What do you think was the most overrated movie of this 2019? As much as by the public as by the critics.

I've seen a handful of okay Sandler flicks (if that hand belongs to a tiny newborn); reminds me of a joke RiffTrax: A Talking Cat (I may paraphrase 'cause I can't remember it word for word):

Girl (talking about Hamlet): "It's about a man who doesn't go after what he wants even though it's right in front of him."
Kevin: "That's also the plot of EVERY Adam Sandler movie, so don't get all high and mighty!"

So far I'm not disappointed by the movies but from the trailer, "Les Misérables" strikes me as a rather biased anti-Police film... I may be wrong but the film has been vividly criticized here in France.

Do you think it's an "overrated" movie?

I didnt watch the film... but it seems like a divisive movie. Detractors might find it dangerously manipulative... so kind of overrated.

Les Miserables, added

Are we talking about the Les Miserables musical?  It's actually great, in my opinion.  As far as being anti-police, I didnn;t get that. The punishment for a poor booy stealing food was much too harsh, back then.  But reguardless of the plot, the music is great and the best thing about it is that it's a musical with dignity - not cheesy High School Musical stuff.

Les Misérables from this year is not a musical, but a modern drama which only borrows its title from the Victor Hugo story.

Ah, yes... I remember seeing a poster for that.  That's not the musical, lol.  :)  I withdraw my previous comment, too.

I thought it would be stupid to add The Lion King, because nobody seems to care about that movie, however after being nominated in the Golden Globes I could realize how overrated it really was.

Are you going to add Captain Marvel? It's the single most generic superhero movie I've ever seen, I really don't get the hype behind it besides it starring a female protagonist. DC two years ago released Wonder Woman, a female driven superhero movie that not only had a likeable star but was also directed by a female director! I know Marvel fans will crucify me for saying this but it just wasn't very good.

I haven't seen it, but looking at the 50 most voted films, Polar seems to have the biggest in critics and viewers love.

Sorry, I deleted a line, it has the biggest difference between the metacritic rating and the IMDb users rating, so you could argue it is very overrated by users.

I try to find an average balance between the opinion of critics and the public, this movie has a Metascore score of just "19"

The original Dario Argento movie is one of my favourite horror movies, it's got so much style and is absolutely unrelenting! I couldn't bring myself to watch the remake...

Suspiria is from 2018 :D

How is Suspiria (2018) overrated?
For something to be overrated, some group or population must have had at least valued the project numerically high? Critically and audience wise? It's all mixed reviews. No one particular population openly loved in (in their monolithical collective voice). And it didn't win any awards.

Yeah it won two Independent Spirit Awards but it also won a Yoga Award (WTH that is) for Worst Director.

Irishman, I think the rating will be around 7.5 in 1 or 2 years. For me it’s a 4/10

Definitely 'Joker:' A great performance but the second half of the film just got in the way. It seems that the writer and director never heard that "less is more."

The movie I have with a lower score is 'Endgame' but I met a lot of people who also despise this horrendous movie, and this seem to be loved by fans. So my choice would be Joker or Us, movies that were inflated by critics and people for being a supposed social criticism, however they are still faulty commercial movies, I enjoyed Joker a lot but I have heard so many people and critics say that this is the "best movie of the year" that became tormenting for me, and on the other hand 'Us' It's a movie with a silly script, almost as dumb as 'Get Out'

I agree, especially about 'Joker,' and from your choice of favorite films of 2019, I think that we probably have similar taste. And while I've also seen or heard a few critics rave about it, it got a Metacritic score of only 59. I wouldn't even give it quite that but it's certainly not a high meta score. 

I generally don't go to see superhero movies, as my estimate of them is similar to  Martin Scorsese's so I didn't see Endgame.
