It’s confession time. How many of you have secretly hated a movie that everybody else just seemed to absolutely love?
When the Netflix series, Squid Game (2021), was released, it seemed like the world was divided into half – those who absolutely loved it and those who thought it was overrated. It can be quite scary to voice your honest opinions on movies and shows that are so loved and hyped up by what seems like the majority.
You could say a single bad thing about the film, and next, you realize the look of shock on the faces of the people around you. Worst case scenario, you could sit there for hours and listen to people trying to convince you why you’re wrong. There definitely is no right and wrong when it comes to preferences, but some have more support.
So, today, Maimovie has ranked the top 10 most hyped up but overrated movies, according to reviews left by people. You’re not alone in your dislike of a popular movie!
The following list was based on Maimovie on April 13, 2022, under the “hyped up” and “overrated” Keytalks. Check out the Maimovie app or website to discover more movies and shows.
