-- Yes, two of the best adventure type films in recent years are TOTALLY over-rated.
: 2. Lord of the Rings. I actually liked it, liked the second one, and am going to see the third one... it's just overrated. Why? It's BORING AS ALL HELL.
-- Lord of the Rings... is boring? See, I'm thinking that no matter how exciting the film is, you're just not the kind of person cut out for sitting still watching a movie for three hours. Why not try puppet shows? I hear they're pretty short.
: 3. X-Men. The first one. Once again, I liked it, it's just held in too high regard. It's actually not a very good interpritation of the comic (nobody seems to notice it follows almost NONE of the guidelines set by the books), it's just the first comic film to use modern effects the way they're supposed to be used.
-- X-Men comics are mental - you would have preferred it if they'd had them scampering around dressed as circus performers, fighting dinosaurs in the Savage Land? You're silly.
