It's all so subjective of course but one film that seems to be held in high esteem by sci-fi buffs is 2001.
It might have good special effects and nice music but it is slow, boring, tedious, dull and ultimately underwhelming. HAL is the star but this film is massively over rated.

Withnail's ok but hugely overrated. It's moderately amusing in parts but I don't get the whole "cult" thing that surrounds it.

Other overrated or underwhelming films:

Blade Runner
Citizen Kane
Revolver
Forrest Gump
The Krays
The Sound of Music (f***ing detest it)
Braveheart
Singin' in the Rain

Considering that Uncle Monty was based on you I'm surprised you're not a bigger fan.

You are on my wavelength with that list, except Citizen Kane. I actually think that is good.

Another film where the level of popularity is unfathomable is Casablanca. I have never managed to watch it all the way through.

The Shawshank Redemption - have never understood why people raved about, this at best, average movie.

La la land - I actually thought it was ok but not sure why it got put forward for so many awards.
