Top Ten Fool's Gold: The Overrated Part 5 Doctor Zhivago

In this series I would like to provide my readers with a more critical perspective to consider, one that hopefully will not detract from a person's appreciation for the films under review. At the same time, I'd question whether these motion pictures really deserve the high accolades bestowed upon them by the critical community in general. Perhaps it's like this: Instead of "The emperor has no clothes," I'm saying "He's just not that well dressed."

These notices are meant for viewers familiar with the following motion pictures.

(They will be addressed in alphabetical order.)

Top Ten Fool's Gold: The Overrated Part 1 Blade Runner

The purpose of this list is not to give a critical lambasting to what a great number of viewers consider to be cinematic treasures. What I would like to provide my readers with is an alternative and admittedly more critical perspective to consider, one that hopefully will not detract from a person's appreciation for the films under review.
