Pan's Labyrinth

Received so much praise and won the academy award for best foreign film (I think) but then I watched it and was completely underwhelmed. Acting was extremely mediocre at points very bad. The concept itself was interesting but it did not include enough of the fantasy elements to set it apart from most "rebellion under terrible odds" films. Yes I know that wasn't the basis of the film but a large portion of the story is told through it.

Might have to agree with the OP on Lost In Translation. Some stupid b..ch I worked with when I started a job in a video shop asked me did I like Lost In Translation as a make or break question. I thought it was alright nothing special. I must rewatch it as I haven't seen it since it came out.

True Grit was good. Sorry.

Little Miss Sunshine was great. Then again I seen those films without knowing anything about them. I try avoid hype where I can, hence me not seeing Lord Of The Rings yet.

The Deer Hunter is totally overrated for me. It comes up in best films of all time lists all the time. I wrote another huge post on that on another forum so I'm not willing to go in to huge detail here.

Sounds like you got trolled by satire and didn't get it.
