To Knock Off Thy Pedastal

In the coming months (and likely, years, at my pace) I'll be doing a series of movie reviews devoted to a genre that seems to have been created by overzealous film critic and filmgoer alike: the overrated tripe. Now, that's a bit harsh, as some of the films I'll include in this new series are worthwhile in some way, but all are films that have been revered quite loudly. I've watched them a few or several times and am left scratching my head.

It's all subjective, sure. But some films are just, so, I dunno, inept that I fail to see merit. The movies in this series are quite distinguished and have legions of fans. I wanted to love all of them but still can't quite seem to. Should be fun!
