11 Totally Overrated Movies From the Past 15 Years

With new movies coming out every week, some of them are bound to be great, but here are 11 totally overrated movies from the past 15 years.

1. The Departed

The Departed
Martin Scorcese's The Departed featured an all-star ensemble cast, but it felt a little too much like a clunky wannabe of Japanese film Infernal Affairs.

2. The Descendants

The Descendants
The Descendants gave us Shailene Woodley, but it can never give us 135 minutes of our life back.

3. Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire
Danny Boyle's 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire was nominated for 10 Oscars, but it was a self-indulgent movie about all the things Boyle has done for British film.

4. Avatar

Avatar was a pretty James Cameron film with a very, very high pricetag. It did inspire some cool Halloween costumes, though.

5. Million Dollar Baby

Million Dollar Baby
Anything with Clint Eastwood is bound to be a hit, right? And Million Dollar Baby, a boxing movie, was defintiely a hit. (Puns totally intended.) But it feels a little old before its time, a classic at the ready.

6. Inception

Inception
We've seen Inception 18 times and we're still not sure what parts were real life and what was a dream. And is the top still spinning? Does that mean everything's okay? WHAT HAPPENED HERE?

Hey now, Slumdog Millionaire was actually good. I'm finding it difficult to believe Avatar made this list as well. I agree on the rest. I am, however, surprised that Twilight didn't make this list.

Avatard totally belongs on the list, it was boring the story sucked and it was really nothing more than an excuse to use a huge amount of special effects
