Unpopular opinions are usually followed by backlash.
Confessing your hatred for something famous is always going to cause unrest among people. I remember confessing that I hate the Disney movie “Frozen” and my family almost disowned me. You would probably close this page too after reading that. But hey, it is what it is.
Reddit users shared some “popularly” loved movies that they hated, and the list is going to surprise you. Scroll down below for the list:
1. Remember how big this movie got?
Bird Box. It really seems like someone thought up the cool premise and then they tried to force a script into it. Although i gotta say, the scene with the parking sensors in the car was super cool.
2. I hated it too.
Frozen. Watched it once, thought “eh Disney” and 6 years later remnants of it still continue to surface
3. “People who have never seen musicals.”
La La Land. It was just a love letter to musicals of the past. Well-done, but not groundbreaking or particularly memorable in and of itself. All of my friends who had never really seen musicals went crazy for it and I couldn’t stand hearing the songs from it played.
4. Gamers are not a fan of this one.
Ready Player One was horrendous and should have been offensive to anyone who’s ever played a video game, something which Spielberg has clearly never done.
5. Why waste your time?
Anything that’s “so bad that it’s good”.
I can’t watch that shit
6. Space isn’t sexy.
Fucking Gravity. I hated that movie. I work for an aerospace firm that makes stuff for the ISS. That movie felt like a reason to get Sandra Bullock in her skimpies. Space isn’t sexy. Space is full of a rats nest of cables and 30 year old equipment that’s miraculously being kept on life support by an extremely dedicated group of engineers.
That, and what the fuck was satellite debris doing in the same orbit as the ISS?
7. We’re overpopulated anyway.
Jurassic World. I don’t get how it became so popular. I secretly want the dinosaurs to win and eat all the main characters.
8. Divorce over movies?
My wife hates Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Wondering if I should be considering divorce.
9. The books were much better.
The Hunger Games is probably my favorite book series, but the first three movies suck. I didn’t watch the last one.
10. Pretty straightforward.
I’m not afraid to clearly state my opinion of anything
I don’t like any of the current crop of action movies
11. Well, if you look at it that way…
The notebook. I don’t get what’s so romantic about a guy hanging on a ferris wheel to make you go on a date with him. That’s basically blackmailing.
Sausage Party, all critics liked it because it had “meaning” but I thought it was an inmature and obnoxious experience.
13. It was too weird for me.
It’s a live action Fern Gully.
14. Some movies can be boring.
Lincoln” was a mind-numbingly boring movie that’s “highlights” were Daniel Day-Lewis being Daniel Day-Lewis with a fake beard. I majored in Political Science (pro-tip: DON’T). I knew what was going on and the maneuverings that were happening and etc. Did not change the fact that it was an insanely boring movie.
The Room is incredible because it tried so earnestly to be an excellent film and flopped spectacularly. Movies like Sharknado are boring (to me) because they try so hard to be quirky. Huge difference.
