I saw a post by Mofo Rising "Hated films you loved" So I was wondering if anyone has exsperienced the opposite?

For me it was the 2004 film Sideways... The most pretentious Movie I ever saw... The movie had "I want an award and look artistic and smart" written all over it. I mean an aspiring author / wine taster. traveling through wine country, while his friend who is soon to be married has sex with everything that moves. And everyone in the movie could not stop going on about what "where am I in life?" I could not take the torture and simply walked out. It was just too much. Got very good reviews. And unfortunatly I am not the only one who has hated one loved movie.

Spill the beans. xD

RCMerchant, I do hate it when people asume I would like this or that. When I hate that tv show or movie, and everyone thinking I love it makes me want that tv show or movie to just die, At least thats what I find 0_o and Crackers, I found inception had one thing in common with the matrix. A very intense, deep intelligent story line, but most people won't be able to follow the story itself first time they see it. I found the same thing with both movies. I love the matrix but inception is meh! BTW Claws No one I know likes silent hill xD Everyone tells me to just not watch it, or I will regret it. lol!

Nothing I really "hate";  considering some of the crap I've sat through, pretty much anything above the level of a college film project is good enough for me not to hate it.  But some I just don't get and found extremely disappointing.

The Silence of the Lambs - was Anthony Hopkins supposed to be scary in that?  I found him kind of humorous. 

The Shining - Jack Nicholson does his Jack Nicholson thing.  Yawn.

Gladiator - Russell Crowe had about 25% of the screen presence required for that to be a good movie.

Fargo - oh look,  everyone has Norwegian accents, isn't that the funniest thing you've ever seen in your life?  Um, no.

I actually love every film you've mentioned except for Gladiator, which I don't love but like a little. And my favorite among this is actually Fargo, and yes, I find the accents funny and adorable.

I'm probably gonna get a lot of flack for this one, but the original Psycho didn't really do much for me (though I wouldn't say I hated it, it just kinda bored me). Sorry Hitchcock.  Bluesad

the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW definitely was one I disliked as well.

I also did not like Spider-Man 2, The Lord of The Rings movies or Sin City.

The Dark Knight.

To me it seems the director thought pattern went like that:  Joker is all powerful, but Batman has to win... let's give Batman an equally stupid and all-powerful power like x-ray vision. I know it has no sense whatsoever, but who cares. We need Joker shine, let's make every other character an idiot, including Batman. We need some serious drama, let's try to put a broken moral about how criminals and killers are somewhat oppressed by Batman. Joker is not enough, let's put Two-face. How? Somewhat, it does not really matter... AAAAHHH!

I thought Anthony Perkins gave an amazing performance in PSYCHO, but there are plenty of Hitchcock movies I like better.  I think a person almost had to have been one of the first audiences who saw it, not knowing going in what the "twist" was going to be, to really feel it.

I hated AMERICAN BEAUTY.  Found it really smarmy and pretentious.
THE SOCIAL NETWORK.  I hate everything about it: I hate that they flat-out fabricated most of the story, I hate every character, I hate Justin Timberlake's stupid face and Jesse Eisenberg's endless sulking, I hate the soundtrack, I even hate the way it looks.  But most of all I hate that everybody on earth praises it while ignoring ZODIAC.

"Hate" is probably too strong a word, but 2001 left me cold.  I admire that movie, but I didn't enjoy a second of it.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I didn't see THE SOCIAL NETWORK, but I will say that I found ZODIAC to be long, boring, and not at all worth my money.
