That's one of the few selections listed that I haven't seen yet (yes, I know I should get around to it). Either way, I think we can agree that this list is a half-assed attempt to stir up some (mostly pointless) debate.

No Pirates of the carribbean?

Both of them; overlong, overwrought, and overloud.

So much TITANIC love here...I honestly thought I'd never see that again.

I LOVE TITANIC.

I love it so much I took that 3 disc collector's set and made a longer version of the film using all the deleted scenes, plus the alternate ending. Took me three times and six discs to get the audio synchronized right. Seeing it with the (admittedly funny) alternate ending is very interesting, considering all the events that took place only minutes before.

Remember, fellow TITANIC fans, that about a year from now is the 10th anniversary of the film's release.

They need to be rated to be overrated. Both films were critically bashed.

Exactly what I was getting at. Universal praise for it, then universal condemnation.

To Kill A Mockingbird should be at the top of that list. Speaking of lists, Schindler's List deserves a mention as well.

Whoever put 2001 on that list is an idiot, pure and simple.

Agree with Crash being overrated crap.
Let's also not forget Passion by Mel G and Fifth Element.
