<![CDATA[Ranker: Recent Film Lists]]> http://www.ranker.com/list-of//film http://www.ranker.com/img/skin2/logo.gif Most Viewed Lists on Ranker http://www.ranker.com/list-of//film <![CDATA[The Most Overrated Movies of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-most-overrated-movies-of-all-time
The most overrated movies of all time in one list, ranked in order of how overrated they really are. Being overrated doesn't mean it's not a good movie, or even a classic movie, it just means the movie's not living up to the hype surrounding it. Some of these overrated movies are Academy Award winners, some of the best comedies of all time, and some are even considered to be among the best movies ever, but all these movies can also be bunched into this list of the most overrated movies of all time.

These are movies that film critics hailed as brilliant, movies your friends said you had to see, comedies you would fall over laughing at, and dramas so deep you'd never look at the world the same way again. Except that you did watch them, they did suck, and now you're questioning your friends' taste in everything.

What are the most overrated films? What classic movies are overrated? What are some movies that everyone loves that some people hate? This is by no means a complete list of overrated movies, but it's a whole bunch of them. If you know of a supposedly great movie that's overrated and not on the list of the most overrated movies, make sure to add it so other people can save their time and give it a miss.

<![CDATA[The Best Movies Released Memorial Day Weekend]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-movies-released-memorial-day-weekend/ranker-film
This list includes the best movies released over Memorial Day weekend. The traditional, four-day Memorial Day weekend is considered a major launching point for summer blockbuster films. In fact, as you can clearly see on this list, some of the most epic movies in cinema history came out over the long holiday weekend. Vote for the Memorial Day movie releases you like the most, vote down any you don't like and of course, feel free to re-rank this list your way, too.

Several of the greatest films of all time saw box office release over the Memorial Day weekend, including a number of 'Star Wars' films ('The Empire Strikes Back' and 'A New Hope').

One clear winner on any list of movies released over Memorial Day: Films for kids and/or families. Some great movies for kids got a Memorial Day release, including 'Madagascar,' Pixar's 'Up,' 'Shrek' and 'Kung Fu Panda 2.' No, they weren't all Oscar winners, but they sure kept restless children out of school for the holidays occupied! Holiday weekends are always a great time to release major movies, because a lot of families are looking for a nice escape to a quiet theater to enjoy a few hours of mindless, great entertainment.

While Memorial Day is the traditional kick-off time period for blockbusters, in recent years in particular, more and more big films are being released over the July 4th holiday, too. At least two of the most anticipated summer 2013 movies were released over the Memorial Day weekend: 'The Fast and the Furious 6' and 'The Hangover Part III' were expected to have strong box office debuts, even with competition from 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' 'Iron Man 3' and 'The Great Gatsby.'

<![CDATA[What If Movie Quotes]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/what-if-movie-quotes/movie-and-tv-quotes
"What If" movie quotes explore the age-old question if men and women can really have successful platonic relationships without romantic feelings ruining everything. The romantic comedy movie, also known as "The F Word," was adapted into a screenplay by Elan Mastai based on the play "Cigars and Toothpaste" by T. J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi. Directed by Michael Dowse, "What If" opened on August 8, 2014.

In "What If," Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) is feeling down about love, despite being a hopeless romantic. This changes when his friend Allan (Adam Driver) introduces him to his cousin Chantry (Zoe Kazan). Wallace and Chantry instantly connect but she soon informs him that she is dating someone else (Rafe Spall) and places him firmly in the friend zone.

All is going well with Wallace and Chantry acting as best friends until he starts to catch feelings for her. But with Chantry still having a boyfriend and her about to leave town to take a job offer, the situation quickly becomes very difficult. Will Wallace man up and tell her how he feels or let what might be the love of his life slip away?

"What If" brings some levity to a summer 2014 movie season packed with blockbusters such as "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "The Hundred-Foot Journey "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Get On Up," "Hercules," "Lucy," "Magic in the Moonlight," "A Most Wanted Man," "Happy Christmas," "Planes: Fire & Rescue," "Sex Tape," "Wish I Was Here, "And So It Goes, "Dawn of Planet of the Apes," "A Long Way Down," "Tammy," "Earth to Echo," "Deliver Us from Evil," "Transformers: Age of Extinction," "Snowpiercer," and "Begin Again,".

Love Inspires You
Wallace: "In Paris, love inspires you to be noble and courageous but in real life, love is just an all-purpose excuse for selfish behavior."
Chantry: "I don't know if you are actually cynical or just a super-crazy romantic cheese ball."

Wallace's romantic side comes out when he discusses love. Chantry isn't really sure how to take all of this.
Honesty Is the Foundation of Any Relationship
Allan: "There is a fourth option. Be honest. Tell her how you feel. It might ruin the friendship but at least you stood up like a man and expressed your feelings."
Wallace: "Wait, since when does being a man involve expressing your feelings? Did I miss a memo? Because if I recall, being a man meant hiding your feelings forever. Like Bruce Willis, you never see Bruce Willis expressing his feelings. The most you ever get out of Bruce is a hint of melancholy at the edge of a smirk."
Allan: "Do you think Bruce Willis would be happy just being friends? 100% honesty is the foundation of any relationship?"
Wallace: "What, you are 100% honest with Nicole?"
Allan: "Yeah"
Wallace: "About everything?"
Allan: "Yep!"
Wallace: "About New Orleans 2006, what was her name? Favia? Yeah, she did look like a woman, to be fair."
Allan: "99% honesty is the foundation of any relationship."
Wallace: "You know, it's not worth the risk."

Allan urges Wallace to man up and be honest about his love for Chantry. Wallace, however, didn't get the memo about how being a man translates to expressing feelings.
Fool's Gold
Wallace: [in an email] "So I found this website where they explain what Fool's Gold is. You take a loaf of Italian white bread. You coat it in butter, then you bake it. Then you hollow out the inside and coat it with an entire jar of peanut butter and an entire jar of jam. Then you stuff it with a pound of crispy bacon. The website said it serves 8-10 people."

Wallace writes Chantry an email explaining the details of the Fool's Gold delicacy. It's not immediately clear why he's explaining this to her but as deliciously gluttonous as it sounds, we're not complaining.
Greatest Moment of My Life
Allan: "I just had sex. I'm about to eat nachos! It's the greatest moment of my life!"

Allan: "Wallace, did you guys meet? This is my cousin Chantry."
Chantry: "Hi"

The best moment of Allan's live, something he is very much aware of, is followed by a pivotal moment in Wallace's life too. Wallace, however, doesn't know then how meeting Chantry will change all of them forever.
I Can Cause I'm a Grown Up
Wallace: "You can't interact with a woman without sex screwing it up but I can cause I'm a grown up."
Allan: "That's so adorable that you really believe that."

Wallace tries again to defend his claim that his platonic relationship with Chantry is completely normal. Allan thinks he is so adorable to think that way but isn't buying it.
Can Men and Women Really Be Friends
Nicole: "So, Wallace, we should talk about the complex issues of our times. Can men and women really be friends or do you secretly want to bang Chantry?"
Wallace: "She has a boyfriend."

Nicole drills Wallace about his relationship with Chantry. She thinks that men and women can't have successful platonic relationships. Wallace doesn't exactly deny her accusation.
So, Friends?
Chantry: "I'm going to give you my number. We should hang out."
Wallace: "Yeah"
Chantry: "My boyfriend will be worried about what happened to me… So, friends?"
Wallace: "Yeah, why not? Is this always how you make friends, like it's a business deal?"
Chantry: "Yeah, actually, it's just my style."
Wallace: "Okay, it's quite unnerving but it's good."

After a nice evening with Chantry, Wallace is placed firmly in the friend zone. He's a little thrown off by her business-like way of handling the situation but goes with the flow.
I'm Not Sure, About Anything
Wallace: "So are you okay?"
Chantry: "I'm not sure, about anything. I've been offered a job in Taiwan. I'll be gone soon."

Chantry isn't sure what she wants after finding herself between two men and with a big job opportunity. It's clear that she has a lot to think about.
It's a Size Two
Salesperson: "Can I help you?"
Chantry: "I would like to try on that dress."
Salesperson: "It's a size two. Are you a two?"
Chantry: "Yes"
Salesperson: "I'm going to get the measuring tape."
Chantry: "I'm a two."

Chantry: "Wallace?"
Wallace: "Yes"
Chantry: "I need you to come in here."
Wallace: "What?"
Chantry: "I'm kind of stuck. Are your eyes closed?"
Wallace: "Yes"

Chantry's attempt to fit into a dress puts her and Wallace in a compromising situation. Suddenly, she's less than clothed and needs his help. So much for that platonic relationship.
It's Very Easy to Be Cynical
Wallace: "It's very easy to be cynical about love until you've had that instant connection. If you're lucky, it happens once in a lifetime."

Wallace's hopeless romantic mindset makes for quite the speech about love. Now if he could just realize that he might have that once-in-a-lifetime connection right in front of him…

<![CDATA[Into the Storm Movie Quotes]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/into-the-storm-movie-quotes/movie-and-tv-quotes
"Into the Storm" movie quotes take viewers inside the heart of tornadoes in this storm-centric take on found footage films. The action thriller was written by John Swetnam and directed by Steven Quale. "Into the Storm" opened in theaters on August 8, 2014.

In "Into the Storm," a high school commencement ceremony is interrupted when a powerful storm invades the area. As the principal (Scott Lawrence) and students seek shelter in the school, a strong tornado passes overhead. Gary Morris (Richard Armitage) gets a call from his son, Trey (Nathan Kress), and learns that Trey and a friend are trapped in a building that has collapsed and is filling with water.

Knowing it's not safe to travel in the storm, Gary enlists the help of storm chasers Allison Stone (Sarah Wayne Callies), Jacob (Jeremy Sumpter) and Reevis (Jon Reep). As they roam the city en route to Trey, the crew learns that this storm is like no other. It's bigger and scarier than anything they've ever seen, and coming right for all of them.

"Into the Storm" joins theaters already packed with other great films including "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "The Hundred-Foot Journey "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Get On Up," "Hercules," "Lucy," "Magic in the Moonlight," "A Most Wanted Man," "Happy Christmas," "Planes: Fire & Rescue," "Sex Tape," "Wish I Was Here, "And So It Goes, "Dawn of Planet of the Apes," "A Long Way Down," "Tammy," "Earth to Echo," "Deliver Us from Evil," "Transformers: Age of Extinction," "Snowpiercer," and "Begin Again,".

This One Is Bigger Than Any Storm
Allison Stone: "I've studied storms all my life. This one is bigger than any storm that has ever been."

Allison tries to stress the enormity of this storm. She is an expert and this is bigger and scarier than anything she's seen before.
This Is What You Guys Do for a Living
Gary Morris: "This is what you guys do for a living, you go around chasing trouble?"
Allison Stone: "They chase. I study."

Gary is intrigued by the storm chasers and asks about what they do. As Allison remarks, some are there for the thrill, others to actually study the events.
I've Gotta Get My Son
Trey: "Dad, please help us! The building fell down and there's water pouring in!"
Gary Morris: "I've gotta get my son. Can you take us?"

Trey calls his father, Gary, when he and a friend are trapped under a building in the storm. Gary, who is across town, knows he must find Trey but traveling in this weather won't be easy. Thankfully storm chasers, with a freakin' tank, are there to help.
All the Warning Sirens Are Down
Daryl: "All the warning sirens are down. If there's a tornado coming, you're not going to know it."

Daryl shares some really bad news. With the emergency sirens down, if another tornado comes, they won't have any warning. This doesn't sound good at all.
Go Confidently
Principal: "I leave you with Henry David Thoreau's words. 'Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life that you imagined.'"
Gary Morris: "Please move inside in an orderly fashion… Get down! Face the wall! Cover your heads!"

Students are listening to their principal speak at their graduation ceremony when all are rudely interrupted by inclement weather. Within moments, everyone seeks cover in the halls of the high school just in time for a twister to pass overhead. Not a great way to remember this important moment of their lives.
Keep Filming
Jacob: "Hey, Allison, what's happening?"
Allison Stone: "Keep filming."
Jacob: "Whoa, guys, look at that!"
Allison Stone: "Oh my god!"

The storm chasers are in the right place at the right time when a tornado forms right near them. While their shot of the action is gold, the twister soon gets a little too close for comfort.

<![CDATA[The Best Movies Based on DC Comics]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/movies-based-on-detective-comics/all-genre-movies-lists
A list of DC Comics movies. These are films based on DC comics such as Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern, characters that live within the DC Universe. Unlike other comic book companies which really didn't start having films made until the turn of the century, DC Comics have been a bit more popular with several films being released in the 80s and a number of movies and serials dating all the way back to 1951.

Ironically, movies based on DC Comics almost put the comic book movie genre out of business during the 1990's (the Batman sequels). Today though, DC Comics films are in the middle of a renaissance. DC Comics is currently owned by DC Entertainment, which in turn is owned by Warner Bros. Entertainment and they have been putting out some excellent DC Comics movies as of late.

<![CDATA[The Worst Sequels Of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-worst-sequels-of-all-time
The worst movie sequels from throughout film history. These are the follow-up films in a franchise or reboots that brought the most disgrace to a once-beloved properly, and most completely abandoned the elements that had made the first film popular. In many cases, these terrible sequels even abandoned core concepts, characters and ideas that had made the initial films successful - as when the Joel Schumacher Batman series ditched Tim Burton's dark, gloomy sensibility for candy-colored cartoon theatrics, or the "Jaws" series left realism behind and became a flat-out shark horror series.

Follow-up films have always been a huge temptation for movies executives and studios. Name recognition and positive sentiment towards the first movie means a better chance that a sequel will fare better at the box office than a random, unknown title. Additionally, contracts are often signed before an initial movie is made locking in talent for a second, and even third, entry in a potential franchise, meaning there is less up-front dealmaking and casting to be done before production can begin.

In the case of franchises that are essentially 'locked in place' prior to the release of the first movie, like the "Harry Potter" and "Hunger Games" series, these pre-negotiations can be even more all-encompassing. Often, sequel films are shot simultaneously with the original film, or immediately after production has ceased on Part 1. Richard Donner and producer Ilya Salkind famously attempted to shoot "Superman 1" and "Superman 2" at the same time before the idea was abandoned. The concept was again taken up by Peter Jackson when he made the entire "Lord of the Rings" trilogy of films at once.
