    Default Movie controversy?

    What are some of your unpopular movie opinions?

    I think that American Reunion was the only good one of the American Pie movies.

    There was another movie which was almost an American Pie movie but which was not the cast line up but was a sort of reunion/adulthood style movie but I cant remember what it was.

    Affleck is the best onscreen Batman yet.

    I love 300 Rise of an Empire more than 300

    I hated Avatar

    I laugh at the people that get worked up over Bravehart. I did at the theater, I do to this day.

    I hated the Lord of the Rings movies. I don't even like to admit I saw them.

    Napoleon Dynamite is fucking stupid.

    I like the early Adam Sandler movies and I don't care that they're stupid.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Never got the appeal there. Lord of the Rings is the most boring series of people walking about with random fight sequences thrown in. LOTR and Star Wars are both terribly overrated.

    I've seen Billy Madison and Haply Gilmore probably about a hundred times each, and certain party still make me laugh hysterically each time. The Wedding Singer and Anger Management are both decent as well. Really, everything after Mr. Deeds is where it all goes to hell.

    Yes, exactly.

    Good Will Hunting is overrated.

    Not enough people have seen Her.

    The Notebook was ruined by all the parts where they were old except when they died.

    I have yet to be able to sit through a Star Wars movie. Same with Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.

    Studio Ghibli films are amazing even though they're geared towards children. (Howl's Moving Castle is full of deep symbolism, highly recommend)

    If you don't cry when Ernest's dog turns into a wooden statue in Ernest Scared Stupid, then you have no soul. (To be fair, I was 6 years old when this came out)

    Bonus: I've always hated Johnny Depp.

    I really like movies that gross most people out. Like those early John Waters films. I can sit through them and not wince once.

    I hate all super hero and action movies and want them to die in a raging forest fire.

    Not a fan of Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings. Never got the appeal.

    I like pretentious art house films.

    I also like those 90s/early 2000s Adam Sandler films. Me and my sister would watch them constantly growing up. They are our guilty pleasures.

    Additionally, no newer Hollywood movies attract me for some reason. I generally prefer watching old movies I haven't seen yet to watching the newest, released flick out on Netflix. Not really controversial I guess, but just something I've noticed about myself in comparison to many others around me.

    Paranormal Activity sucks. So boring..... apparently boring means scary to some people if you throw in people talking about demons and stupid cloven hoof flour prints every fifteen minutes.

    Avatar is pretty terrible. Sure, the planet looked cool, but the storyline was the most rote, trite shit imaginable. I guess at the time people thought it was "brilliant" political commentary. Also, Sam Worthington was supposed to be the next big star in Hollywood, despite being boring AF. (As a general rule, I think James Cameron needs to stay away from political commentary. It has all the subtlety of being hit with a ten-ton load of bricks. Yes, I get it, rich men that use guns and technology to exploit the environment are bad. For what it's worth, I actually think his ex-wife is the better director. Not that all of Cameron's movies are terrible, it's just that even his 80s output tends to have moments of clichéd cringeworthy political commentary. Maybe at the time it wasn't so clichéd, though. But... Avatar has no excuse. We've already had stuff like Ferngully for years. I just wanted the story to do one thing I wouldn't expect and that I haven't seen in a zillion other movies. It didn't do that. )

    Little Miss Sunshine was also really bad. I got pissed off when they killed off the only likeable interesting character for cheap "pathos." But man, it was so "edgy" sticking it to child beauty pageants. Don't get me started on that dumb subplot about the kid not being able to join the Air Force because he's color blind.

    I also dislike Good Will Hunting immensely. I have nothing against Matt Damon or Robin Williams, I just kind of hate the movie. It sucks in spite of their presence.

    Forrest Gump also blows chunks. Shitty overwrought baby boomer nostalgia porn that champions "plain-spoken" morons like Donald Trump and Dubya.

    The Fountain is Darren Aronofosky's best film.

    I enjoyed watching LOTR, but only because of the breathtaking scenery and good music. The plot is barely two-dimensional, and the characterizations are not very well developed. Star Wars is not as bad but also lacks subtlety, and is sexist (though this might be forgiven based on when it started).

    I find James Bond movies vastly overrated - every single one.

    I generally like Star Trek, but find the more recent movies have veered off course.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Star Wars, at least the original trilogy, seems like a very bland, vapid premise that just kind of resonated with a particular audience at the right time, and once they saw the potential monetary and merchasing goldmine they were sitting on, used the second trilogy to try to artificially add layers of depth and fill in the blanks in order to have something to expand upon (adding water to the Iced Tea to try to stretch it out).

    The only Bond movie is really enjoyed was Casino Royale (Daniel Craig version) and that's mainly because LeChieffe seemed like such a composed and collected, yet menacing villain.
