100 COMPLETELY OVERRATED THINGS

100 THINGS THAT ARE COMPLETELY OVERRATED

Many of these things I don’t hate or, in some cases, even dislike – I simply think they are, well, completely fucking overrated. It was created with the help of my brothers Brian, Sean, Patrick, and Matt, my cousin Mark, Terra Naomi, and my friend Stevie Blackehart. They don’t all agree about ALL of the things on the list (I still think Stevie is going to kill me for #5), but we’re all on board with the vast majority of them.

Enjoy.

1. Unicorns

That’s right, UNICORNS are the number one most overrated thing of all time. A horse with a horn on its head?! Who gives a shit? How the hell did this dumb ass fake animal survive in the consciousness of little girls and other assorted freaks for thousands of years? A rhino – which is real – is infinitely more interesting. I could think up a more amazing mythical creature than a unicorn in about two seconds. How ‘bout this: A squirrel with a fish head and human eyes? Now THAT would be some crazy weird magical shit that would look awesome with a rainbow behind it. Add some crab claws as hands and you’re shitting your pants from fear and coming at the same time. You guys may disagree with many of my above choices – some of them may even piss you off – but, you have to admit, unicorns, which are considered amazing, beautiful, and magic, are just complete pieces of shit.

Feel free to post your comments, misinformed criticisms, and applause below.

See you soon!

James

    HEY JUDE IS NOT OVERRATED YOU FUCKING IDIOT

  • Dreadfulgrindtheatre

    the only thing your list proves for the most part is how uncultured you are. I hope someday you branch out and truly explore things instead of judge them without living them. 

  • http://peacoatnate.wordpress.com/ npettz

    Things I disagree with:
    In-n-Out Burger – Mmm. You are sorely mistaken, my friend.
    Tom Hanks – I’ll pretend you didn’t say that one.
    The Shawshank Redemption – Are you kidding me?! One of my favorites.
    Forrest Gump – See previous explanation.
    Hey Jude – No. Just no.
    Kevin Spacey – UNDERrated.

    Things you forgot:
    DANE COOK – @#$% SUCH an overrated piece of shit.
    Will Ferrell – He’s kinda lost it.
    Blu-ray – Sure, it looks nice but: 1) $30 for a movie is ridiculous, and 2) An upconvert DVD player and the right display settings can work wonders.
    Macs – *Shudders*
    The University of Washington – That’s a personal opinion : )

    Don’t blame me if my html doesn’t work – I see no instructions on whether I can use it here.

    97. EXCALIBUR

    Sex while wearing armor can never be overrated, Jimmy. Nor can anything that Helen Mirren is in … or wearing.

  • http://www.jamesgunn.com James Gunn

    I love Monty Python (well, I love the Monty Python movies).

  • Graf Schmerz

    Can’t agree on 70.

    What about combining 95 and 70? or better:

    !!95 and 1!!

    You can’t deny, both would be great. Or at least…bizarre

    Greets from Germany

  • oogie

    Seriously, what do you like? One minute I’m agreeing with you the next minute I’m thinking “Wait, he doesn’t even like blowjobs? So in the parallel universe where I get you to become my sex slave I can’t even draw you in with a BJ??”

  • http://www.WillmoreCity.com Devilpenis

    James, are you one of those dude’s that hates Monty Python? By the time I’d seen a Fish Called Wanda, I guess I still had Python on the brain and it didn’t live up to it. Or down to it if you wanna look at it like that.

  • http://www.jamesgunn.com James Gunn

    I think Joseph named the mythical creature and it is a Squish.

  • faisal

    totally agree with you about so many things on that list, well except for tupac. but seriously i cannot express my hatred towards the elder scrolls:oblivion, it took me 2 weeks to realize that i’ve thrown 60$ down the toilet,shat on them, and flushed them away. and seriously sex with virgins is gross. and u also forgot 2001:a space odyssey which imo is really overrated. anyways loving ur tweets man and did u give ur myhthical creature a name?

  • http://www.jamesgunn.com James Gunn

    Matt – I like a lot. Check out my blog in the LISTS section 100 Things I Love. I may do an underrated list in the future.

    The Heidster – I don’t think people much overrate Pearl Jam today. I too liked them a lot more back then than I do now.

    I didn’t like Fish Called Wanda when I first saw it, and still don’t. I’d rather watch Big any day.

  • the heidster

    2 questions: What about Pearl Jam? In the early 90s, I thought they were awesome but in hindsight they were totally overrated.

    Also, A Fish Called Wanda… Is that looking back at it now or did you always think it was so? I remember thinking that it was revolutionary, crude humor…compared with Big, Coming to America, My Stepmother Is An Alien…and other comedies from that timeframe.

  • Matt Cable

    Jesus. What the fuck do you like? And what did Robert Redford and Paul Newman ever do to you?

  • http://www.jamesgunn.com James Gunn

    Roy – Interestingly, yes, you seem to be proving your own point.

  • Roy Fashooo

    EVERYONE IS NOW DUMBER FOR HAVING READ THIS FUCKING SHIT! YOU’RE ALL FUCKING IDIOTS

  • http://www.WillmoreCity.com Devilpenis

    Excalibur is hilarious because it’s got a skinny-ass, coked-out Patrick Stewart running around in it. Not to mention that crazy green glow and seeing the camera crew reflected in the armor.
