Other than Pixar (which does have its bad apples) and Fight Club (I've never been in a crowd that obsessed over it) I agree with your list. Way to be bold, man.
EDIT: By "incredibly overrated" I'm implying a film that's not only overrated, but you didn't find it amazing to begin with.
With Lord of the Rings, it was mostly a process of sitting through it and TRYING so hard to stay awake. Now, the whole series isn't bad, Fellowship is one of my favorite films of all time, it never had a pacing nor a narrative problem to me. However, the next two were something of a chore to get through. I have only seen Return once because I do not want to experience it again. Two Towers is just........painful for me. Its not done badly, it just doesn't work for ME.
I've never read the books nor do I plan to. I read spy and crime books. Never got into fantasy much.
As far as Pixar, Wall-E is one of the greatest movies ever. I haven't seen Up yet or Toy Story 3, but I am just not a fan of most of their movies. Incredibles, Toy Story 1 & 2 are OK, but for my own reasons, those movies just don't sit well anymore. The rest of the catalog is not welcomed in my DVD collection at all.
