    Most Overrated

    Probably not the right title for this thread as I have no doubt that some pedant will declare that they never rated it anyway so feel free to change it

    Anyway, I was having a beer with a mate last night and we ended up talking about things/people that achieved general acclaim/success without being very good

    As a starter, here are my thoughts

    Actors

    Ben Affleck - totally wooden
    Nicole Kidman - totally wooden and her films virtually never turn a profit

    Films

    Gone With The Wind - probably my fault for thinking I was going to watch a Rom/Com when it was a story about a hyper bitch and spineless ****
    Titanic - boat sinks, who knew? Haven't sat through the whole movie despite numerous attempts to do so
    Avatar - one of the worst scripts in history

    Music

    Garth Brooks - worst example of C & W
    Celine Dion - just no

    Computer games

    How the **** does a mouse/screen compare to the great outdoors and reality?

    Books

    Anything by Salman Rushdie

    Could go on about politics, countries etc but thought I'd let my esteemed colleagues chip in

    good idea of a thread.....completely agree with you on Titanic and Nicole Kidman
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    although I think that The Others was a good movie and probably turned up a decent profit

    I don't think anyone rates Affleck, as an actor anyways. A wax statue could pull off better facial expressions.

    But his direction in Argo was awesome.
    Get well soon Yuvi!!

    Obviously a few have made a profit but she allegedly gets paid 20 mill per movie and 2/3 is an absolute dud at the box office

    Plus she is one of the world's most annoying people

    No idea how she gets away with it

    Good director and screenwriter but has just been cast as the new Batman

    Way to **** up a franchise

    One other thought

    Holiday destination

    Bali

    Unless you are a surfer looking for a break on an offshore location or want to stay in your room at a generic hotel close to town, the place is a complete dump

    Not particularly controversial choices from Social. There was me thinking this was going to be a thread about Mandela.

    I liked Kidman in To Die For. Oh and BMX Bandits! I'm kind of guessing though that her acting ability in BMX wasn't going to win her any awards.

    Re; Bali. Its an interesting one. When I was living up in Darwin. Spending 4 days up in Bali was cheaper and more enjoyable than it would have been to go to a coastal location anywhere around Australia, so for me, I'm glad I've been there the once, but agree that its overrated as a go to place for Aussies in general.

    Can't wait for a hopelessly misguided reply to this.
