Sometimes disliking a movie is not enough.
There are movies I've seen more than once and that I tried to understand and enjoy but ended up abhorring them. My feelings towards these movies are just as intense as my feelings towards the movies I love. (You know how they say the opposite of love is not hate but indifference?)
And the funny thing is that, even though everyone is entitled to their own taste, there are some movies that everybody loves. Have you ever said you don’t like a certain popular movie and the other person just stared at you with open, incredulous eyes as if you said you didn't like ice cream.
These are the five movies that when I say I don't like them people go “How can anyone not like....?”
Never argue with Tarantino fans. They stand up for him like I stand up for Nutella.
If we are being honest (and unpopular) I'd have to say I don't like any Tarantino movie. I haven't seen Inglorious Basterds and don't feel the slightest inclination towards watching Django Unchained. I remember watching Kill Bill and feeling like blood was coming out of the screen and leaving me drenched at the end. Weird, right? You know what's weirder? Laughing at violence.
2) Modern times
Admit it, you don't like this movie either.
This is a big college hit. People in English departments worship Charlie Chaplin. It’s not that I don’t like silent movies, because I love Buster Keaton’s. I just don’t care for the persona that Chaplin created or that corny feeling of every movie he makes.
3) Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Oh Audrey, do people really watch this movie or they just love you for your clothes?
I do admit that Audrey Hepburn is an icon. I also know it was Truman Capote who wrote the book, but that doesn’t make it good either. Holly is a shallow, empty character who has all this elegance but no intelligence or morals for that matter (the scene where she encourages Paul to steal always bothered me). I can’t sympathize with the characters or their fates. I’m afraid what draws people to this movie is Audrey Hepburn and not the story.
My first disappointed was discovering this actor was not Michael J. Fox.
People go a little crazy when it comes to 2001. After watching 2001, some fainted, others wrote doctoral thesis about it. Everybody agrees is an out-of-this-world experience. I hated it. The Shinning, A Clockwork Orange and Dr. Strangelove are just as complex and much more watchable.
5) Star Wars
The only reason I watched Star Wars in the first place
Maybe you had to grow up in the 70's to like this franchise, because come on... Nobody started liking Star Wards based on the last three movies, right? It's sad because there are six movies and none of them is a match for, say... Lord of the Rings.
What movies you hate (and all your friends love)?
