The Dark Knight Rises. People were talking about academy awards for that one, not to mention the critics drooling over it, but apparently were blind to the horrible acting skills of Marion Cotillard and some mailed in performances by other actors, and general sloppy writing, and the dumbest cops ever who apparently forget all their training skills and run blindly into open fire.

I agree that it's hard to call TASM and MoS overrated, most people were tepid over those two films.

I would say:

Spider-man 1 & 2
Superman 1 & 2

I want to say TDK....but I can understand why it's so loved.

Not really.

Not really saying much when it only has 1 other competition for second place.

They still had generally positive albeit not great reviews.

For MoS, I think that was spot on, but even merely decent is overrating ASM. It was the worst of the four Spider-Man films, IMO.

I loved Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films, even liked Spider-Man 3, but The Amazing Spider-Man was better than that, and certainly decent.

For me it's The Avengers, it was nothing special, expected more from Joss Whedon

Yes, but the BO met your expectations.

Avengers is kind of overrated. It is still very good, just not at the level of the best blockbusters ever that it is often proclaimed as. It is an 8/10 type of film.

More or less, i don't know about you but i certainly expected the film to break records and make more or less what it did, i even wondered if it could beat Titanic months before it was released, so no, i wasn't one of those guys saying it would make Iron Man numbers

I'll agree. I thought the film was just ok,and a major step down from the previous one. Although I did love Anne Hathaway's performance.

TDKR and TASM immediately come to mind. Those were both bad films by nearly every measure for me, and I feel like critics overlooked several glaring issues with both of them.

For as much as I enjoyed it, I'd say that Avengers is mildly overrated as well. I wouldn't put it at the top of the genre(although it's up there), but I will say that it's a solid blueprint for the superhero ensemble.

Lots of films are this way:

Spider-Man 1 & 2
X-Men 1, 2 and XMFC
TDKR
MoS
Batman'89 and Returns
The Wolverine
Scott Pilgrim
but nothing tops TDK in this category as far as I can see.

TDK fully started the Nolanite cult, so I can totally see that. I love Kang Conquer's quote where he said (paraphrasing Ghandi) "I like your Christopher Nolan, but I don't like your Nolanites."

I still don't think movies like TASM, MOS, Cap or Thor can be regarded as overrated considering they aren't rated that highly by the public.

Well yeah, I don't think any less than decent CBMs can be considered overrated.

I don't find any movie overrated. Overrated is such a dumb term to describe something that some one think is too liked or loved by most other people.

It depends. Some CBMs are put on a pedestal.

MoS might be true but I'd say the rest indeed are regarded better. At the very least they hit considerably better with the critics(yes, I know critics and audience don't always co-incide) but all of those films(including MoS) were successful without being sequels to pre-existing well received and profitable films. You don't get there without a goodly amount of audience approval. Not on the first try, at least. A sequel can coast on the coattails of a good former film but that's not the case of any of these you mentioned. Two are brand new and two are reboots.

So you're saying you agree with the general consensus of every CBM that's come down the pike? Way to keep it mainstream, I guess.
