      @ROFLitschristian -- Overall, yeah. I just didn't like it much because I didn't enjoy it much, ha. The dialogue was sometimes cheesy on 'Avatar', not to mention the horrible, nearly unbelievable villain.

          @ROFLitschristian -- Which one? I was talking about 'Star Trek', if you didn't catch me the first time.

                @ROFLitschristian -- No, I don't mean it like that. It was okay-not my kind of movie, but over-rated. The cinematography, costumes, sound effects, and make-up were great. The acting was good, the action scenes were decent, and they added a nice sense of humor. If I had to rate it based on everything, I'd probably give it a 6.0-7.0 -- It's just that I didn't "enjoy" it much, I wasn't compelled to watch it and I wasn't entertained in the process. Albeit, I did really like the beginning. I say it is over-rated because of the feedback make it look outstanding, and while everything was executed nicely, it's not a film I enjoyed watching and I found the melodrama defrauding. (Check IMDb.com, along with Rottentomatoes.com and Yahoo movies).

                  @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx As for Avatar, if you took away all the pretty scenery and the outstanding blue giants, how much money would it have really made? Less then $800,000,000 considering how bland it was.

                    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Yeah. I've seen bits and pieces of Gran Torino and I was bored to death. But don't tell me Star Trek was bad! I have such high hopes for that movie! I'll be crushed if it's bad.

                      @ROFLitschristian -- Holy crap! You're nearly spot on! I saw half of 'The Hangover', and I kinda liked it. But I absolutely abhor 'Paranormal Activity', and 'Avatar' was OKAY, nothing more, nothing less. I personally feel the most over-rated movie of all-time would have to be 'The Shawshank Redemption' . It's a really good movie, but when people hail it as "the greatest movie of all-time", and the only film they actually love-it's a complete over-statement. I think a lot of other films are over-rated, even if it's a tad bit over-rated. 'Collateral' would be an example. Along with 'Hotal Rwanda', 'Star Trek' and 'Gran Torino'. I kind of really liked 'Gran Torino', but some of the ratings its' been getting is absolutely ridiculous-especially considering how bad the acting was at some points for that one kid, etc.

                            @ROFLitschristian -- It really is awesome to know that I'm not the only person that thinks some of these trailers and such are over-rated. What do you think is quite possibly the most over-rated movie(s)?

                              Well, i'm sure they'll both make a whole lot of money in the box office when they're released, and i'm sure they'll both be good movies.

                                @themoviefanatic: But "The Avengers" is so far certainly not the MOST anticipated film of summer 2012. "TDKR" has a good 3yrs on it already, and with Marvel we're familiar with the format, but with Nolan he likes to completely deliver a different type of Batman film with each installment.

                                  I wouldn't say that. Both those movies will probably be really good.

                                    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx FINALLY SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS! I watched it and all I thought was, "Hmm, looks cool," while everyone else was splooging over it (sorry if that's a gross image :P). It was an okay trailer.

                                        I would have loved to see TDKR and The Avengers to be released the same weekend as each other...that would be the ultimate comic-book movie showdown! But I'm sure fans have been waiting longer for an all star superhero movie like Avengers (which has never been down before) than the finale of a Batman trilogy which happens to be the 7th Batman movie. In the end, these films are equally as anticipated for me and i can't wait to see them compete with eachother!
