I keep looking at that in the video shop... but it's a high school flick is it not?

Just seen it, watch it, it's brilliant! The lead character is in high school along with a few other central figures but that doesn't detract from the story or make it loose its appeal. Its a gripping film (one of those that you have to finish to see it unfold) and worth every penny.

I'll agree with that, Children of Man was way over rated, I'm not saying that it was a bad movie, but, the previews made it seem way better than what it was... However I gotta throw out one movie myself, and I know I am gonna get hated on for it lol Transformers, While very good in its own right, all of my friends and everything I read about it said that it was the best movie ever, and I found it to be just a pretty good movie to watch.

Well that was the complete opposite for me... I was going to go and see it because I was studying 3D Animation at the time and thought the animation looked really good... I never actually expected it to have a half decent story in it too and generally be entertaining! So for me it was an average movie... but better than expected  ;)

Edit: And seeing previous posts again... yes I did get out Brick and really enjoyed it cheers!

I didn't really read the posts above, and I'm sorry. If someone has mentioned this already, then.. please by all means delete this post. I believe the most overrated film aside from Donnie Darko, and The Boondock Saints has to be none other then "The Nightmare Before Christmas". A lot of people love this movie, As Synbios said.. Seeing "The Boondock Saints" on a lot of peoples myspace/facebook favorites, I also find "The Nightmare Before Christmas" on the list as well.

I assume you mean Children of Men, I thought it was brilliant. Fantastic dialogue, fantastic cinematography, fantastic characterization, it didn't have a thrilling or dynamic plot but I never thought it was supposed to.

I've never even heard of quite a few... so they can't be that overrated  :P
