    What films are out there that are massively celebrated but you just dont get the hype? You may not dislike them at all, but you cannot understand why they are so revered compared to others.

    The two that I really dont get are Apocalyspe Now, and The Shawshank Redeption. Both are decent films but I do not understand why people consider them to be amongst the greatest films ever made.

    Anyone have any others?

    The Godfather 1 and 2. Cant understand how everyone says they are the best films of all time. They are the best mob movies yes, but definetly not best films of all time. Not to mention they get really boring at times.

    Inception and Pulp Fiction are another two I cant stand.

    Star Wars and Kill Bill. Kill Bill is complete nonsense imo and some of the fight scenes are more comical than anything else.

    This thread has just made me lose a little more faith in humanity. How truly brilliant, ground-breaking and innovative films, such as Star Wars, can not be understood is staggering.

    Funny as Godfather 1 and 2 are my absolute favourite films of all time, but I knew someone would mention these! Seems to split opinion.

    Lord of the rings is another one I dont get either...

    This! Star Wars was phenomenal for what it is. The first 3 are * mind you, maybe that's why people on here don't like them they might have watched them in chronological order.

    Not a film, but I don't get why everyone love South Park.

    South Park is hilarious, especially older series.

    I too have lost a little faith, Lord of the rings and star wars are pish? seriously what films do you guys think are the best? American Pie perhaps?

    In response to star wars, im talking about the original 3, 4/5/6, they are phenomenal movies, the newer versions are quite up to scratch, but decent none the less.
