    "Can't argue with this being overrated, but then again anything that is good tends to be blown out of the water to the point of no return. I'm looking at you, Disney songs. Anyways, Goodfellas is a classic by this point and if you haven't seen it, then go get it. There's a reason people love it."

    "Citizen Kane is such a classic! It is a must see for anyone. It is based on the life of William Randolph Hearst, an VERY wealthy man and his desires in life. It is one of the few movies I would call a masterpiece."

    "Best overrated movies doesn't really make much sense to me. Titanic is a a classic love story film, and while it did have a lot of build up, it was much deserved, in my opinion. "

    "This is certainly an overrated movie, spoken about by rappers more than any other movie, for instance. But Scarface is also very, very fun to watch -- so even if you know you're watching an overrated movie, it's still a lot of fun."

    "Raging Bull is a bit overrated. It is entertaining the first time but I don't think I would watch it again. I would definitely recommend it if you are a fan of boxing though."

    "A real, classic movie. Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara and Clark Gable as Rhett Butler were great. This was one of the early technicolour films (another was The Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland). The biography of Vivien Leigh by Anne Edwards has a lot of information on this film. "

    "I've been keeping up weekly with each new episode of The Handmaid's Tale. I'm a fan of the actress who plays the protagonist after her work on the show Mad Men. The premise of the story is a dystopian future with religious zealots using the bible as their excuse to create a society that is reminiscent of the gestapo like tactics of Nazi Germany in the late 30's and 40's and centers around a woman who has been captured and used as a surrogate for infertile scumbags. It's heartbreaking at times and with current domestic situations, quite believable that this could become a possibility. This show is far from overrated and deserves all it's accolades. "
