Following on from The Ultimate Dilemma, which was considered to be a bit narrow, is the slightly less significant but wider question – which is the most over-rated film? Please use the IMDB top 250 films list to identify candidates. I’m going with (in no particular order):
- Citizen Kane (IMDB 23rd best film) – read my review here.
- Silence of the Lambs (IMDB 27th best film) – how did this joke of a film ever get mistaken for something serious? I mean seriously, I’m having an old friend for lunch??
- The Shawshank Redemption (IMDB 2nd best film) – for consistently being number 2 on the IMDB rankings. It’s not a bad film, but it’s nothing special. It’s based on a Stephen King story people!
Anyone who suggests Dr Strangelove will be in trouble, I warn you now!
