What are your personal Overrated and Underrated Movies? (possible spoilers.)

Feel free to post which movies you feel are either overrated or underrated, and a reason would be nice.

Overrated:

Finding Nemo-Wow, just wow, I have no idea why this recieved so much praise, it was just okay at best, i'll have to admit the hype got to me but oh well, can't undo things or go back in time. Any of Pixar's other movies are better and i have no idea that people would have the nerve to even put this in league with any of the Toy Story movies, just my rant.

Pirates of the Caribbean- Hype, Hype, Hype, i should have not listened, i loved Terminator 3 and since this movie came out a week later i waited, recieved numerous comments in how this was wonderful and better than T3, wrong on both accounts.

Memento- hmm... hype (notice a pattern? damn you loud mouths! not you guys ) was compelled to finish it, but that's because up to that point i'd never not finished a movie nor wasted money renting crap.

Underrated
Meet Joe Black-What a brilliant film, the length was not even a question, what a beautiful film. Great Writing, Acting, and direction all the way through, one of my favorites.

80's horror- yeah vague, but alot of them are bashed, include Nightmare on Elm Street 3, 4, 6(Freddy's Dead), Fright Night, The Lost Boys, many more; of course this is looking at the entire audience of these films not just the cult they have gathered.

thanks for posting.

Underrated - Everything else.

Surely you mean you were compelled to start it?

Oh, yay, another "Everyone else's taste sucks except mine" thread. These almost never cause arguments.
