Also, thought American Beauty was overhyped, I thought they were just a little too smug to be interesting. And I was like, really a plastic bag floating around so beautiful? It was so smug as to be patronizing. I know I am going to get burned for this, but most of the Vietnam films I have seen I thought were overhyped, like Platoon. Most Oliver Stone films seem overhyped to me and usually disappoint me.
I totally agree on Avatar, TWBB and American Beauty (outside of Spacey) being overhyped.

Weird. I normally don't see eye-to-eye with ex-pat limeys.
