Napoleon Dynamite was overrated in my book. All that hype and then when I watch it I laughed maybe twice and wanted to fall asleep the rest of the time.

I liked Napolean Dynamite. I agree it wasn't in your face funny, but it was original.

I think Elton Johns "Candle in the wind" is overrated. It was a nice song but I think the only reason people bought it, was because of the dedication to Princess Diana.

Well, it was originaly written decades ago for Marilyn Monroe...he just re-wrote it for Diana, because the two of them were close supposedly.

Joey: The question is, Rachel, does he like you? ''Cuz if he doesn''t, then it''s all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?
Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.

I loooooooooooove Elton John. (Iknow, I'm odd) The Original Candle in the Wind was awesome. I know all the words. Ididn't really like the Princess Diana version though.

I think High School Musical was overated. It was ok at first, but after that it got tireing. I loathe Zac Effron.
The Music of the Night and Tuxedo Mirage are what keep me from going completely INSANE! (right...)

I agree. How can they call it original when nearly every show out there has done something like this?

Kim Possible-Talent contest
That's so Raven-Fashion Show, Talent contest and Musical
Life's Ruff-Dogshow

I know the idea of it being a Musical is original, but the plot's basically the same as the above.

TV Shows: Reality TV, All of new Nickelodeon and Disney Channel. Oh and any show on CW, especially Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill. MTV.

Music: Jonas Brothers! I HATE their cover of Hello Goodbye, I wanted to hang myself and IMO they can't sing.

Movies: Titanic for sure. The Notebook.

Hm? "Disney Channel Original Movie" just means it was produced for the channel, as opposed to other movies that were produced for cinema, video or other channels.

TV shows: The majority of American Network TV sitcoms. I really couldn't care for them. The few exceptions really run to Arrested Development.

Movies: Any movie that people are calling the "worst movie ever" will usually fit this description. Sure, Gigli was bad, and Battlefield Earth made no sense, but neither crossed the boundaries from just "crap" to "pure, unadulterated, 100% crap" like Space Thing.

Music: Not too fond of Katy Perry's stuff. OK, she kissed a girl and liked it. So what? Tegan and Sara also kiss girls. As does Melissa Etheridge. Gotta get a new gimmick there.
"That new girl? She seems kinda weird to me. And what kind of name is Buffy anyway?"

I know im in the minority with this response but its how I feel.

I just saw the dark knight and I think it's hardly oscar worthy, and also I never thought Heath Ledger was that great of an actor to begin with.

Agreed 100%. She really just reminds me of those high school girls who run around saying that they kiss other girls, just to get boys' attention.
Sailormars Obsessed fan wrote:I never thought Heath Ledger was that great of an actor to begin with.
Also agreed. He wasn't bad, but I never thought he was the kind of amazing that he was portrayed as. Then again, I don't get the hype surrounding most actors/actresses who end up with Oscars.

Im convinced the only reason he was even considered for that oscar is because hes dead and because of Brokeback Mountian. He could have played a trained sea otter in a movie and gotten an oscar for it.

But then again if Fargo can win oscars then anything can

TV Shows: That's So Raven, omg, hate it!
Music: Nickleback. Also, though many might disagree, I think U2 is overrated. Not to say they're awful, but I don't think they're as good as everybody says.
Movies: As of the past couple years, everything the Wayne's Brothers do. Little Man, White Chicks, come on!

As for the Heath Ledger thing, I never thought he was a great actor either. Nice to look at, but not a great actor. However, when I saw the trailer for the Dark Knight (this was before his death), I was amazed at his portrayal of the Joker. I remember asking Kiel who was playing the Joker, and him telling me it was Ledger. I didn't believe him. The fact that I couldn't even recognize Ledger kind of convinced me that he was really good in that role.

This. I never thought he was great overall, but I think he nailed that role. I was amazed and completely transfixed with that movie. It was amazing.

Amen! I'm in the third book and I think the series mediocore at best. Give me a Jane Austen book any old day.

Agreed, I wanna kill people who say it's the next Grease...hell no. And I freaking hate Zac Efron, he's not the least bit attractive IMO.

Well girls, keep in mind, despite grabbing some teenager here and there (I wan't mention names), the stuff is really aimed for preteens/tweens. Hey, it worked on my sister...
