Overrated (mostly too boring):

Munich (overacted, too long)
Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (didn’t finish - boring)
Des Hommes Et Des Dieux (Of Gods and Men) (didn’t finish - boring)
Macross ‘84: Do You Remember Love? (ridiculous)
Haibane Renmei (too slow paced for a few beautiful moments)
Blood Pledge
Green Street Hooligans (interesting, but laughably bad second half)
Black Death (boring)
Illegal (okay, predictable)
