There are many GREAT films that are widely regarded as top-tier, as well as some that are vastly overrated.
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
The stop-motion animation in The Nightmare Before Christmas is a masterpiece, and the film is still considered a classic due to its painstaking design. Most individuals, however, do not pay attention to the real story beats, which are largely predictable.
Not every animated film has to be shocking, but this one mainly surprises visually and lacks true imagination when it comes to telling a tale with all those gorgeously rendered parts.
The Wizard of Oz (1939)
The Wizard of Oz, a generally appreciated film with a lot of musical classics, but fairly bland and traditional by modern standards. Its design components remain fantastic, but going into a movie without knowing what's going to happen is quite challenging.
Judy Garland is wonderfully endearing as Dorothy, but the film's magic isn't as enthralling as it once was. It's a beautiful story, and it might be appropriate for today's children, but it's not the masterpiece you remember.
The Breakfast Club (1985)
The story of five kids from different backgrounds who are put together into Saturday detention by John Hughes may have added some genuine pathos to the lives of the teenage protagonists, but it's another film that seems to have been outdone by what came after it.
The performances at the film's core are excellent, but the final act falls flat, transforming the coolest female in the room into a more conventionally gorgeous version of herself and pushing the popular girl into the arms of the evil guy. Not terrible, although it's a little generic these days.
American Sniper (2014)
While it was a hit when it was first released, American Sniper hasn't aged well. The most memorable image from the film on the internet is definitely Bradley Cooper carrying a fake newborn.
The film's real tale, which concentrates on America's deadliest sniper, is confused by the representation of his different Middle Eastern rivals and the broader approach to the pain it strives to expose. Although it was a box office success, this film was not meant to last.
