View Full Version : Movies you hated that most people liked

What movies did you hate, that you think are overrated? Why do you think they were bad?

Here's an example (really, this is actually my opinion):
UP. Wow. I was so excited to see this movie and it was such a real bummer. I personally believe Pixar could have done a lot better with it, and I think it sucked because the plot was not really that interesting.
I understand that a lot of people thought it was a good movie but I thought it wasn't that great.

Remember, this is an opinion topic, and other people can disagree but not flame.

Agreed.
Like.
Totally agreed. Movies based off of book series usually suck xD

...and books which were based off of movies are really short.

TRANSFORMERS 2. God, it seemed like everyone who wasn't a critic just loved it for some reason, even though it SUCKED SO BAD (pardon my shouting). Seriously, it had totally unconvincing characters, embarrassingly bad dialogue, and even the action scenes--which there were too many of--were downright crap. There was never any genuinely impressive fighting in the entire film, just a bunch of metal crashing together in a manner that leaves the audience wondering which robot is which. Here's a funny bit: They thought for some reason that the Udvar-Hazy Center near Washington DC was in a desert surrounded by mountains.

I regret every minute I spent watching Transformers 2.

EDIT:

Transformers 2. Icomeanon6 basically summed all of it up, but there were so much useless characters included. That robot with the beard, the humping dogs, the robot that shoots by doing a pelvic thrust. And since when does going to college actually have an impact on the story in transformers?

The Simpsons Movie, anyone?

Well yeah, the series is much better. It's not a bad thing to be watching, it just runs on for much longer than an episode which could go over the same story while focusing on the funny parts, and unless I'm missing something The Simpsons was always about family comedy.

I think the question was movies that other people actually liked. Nobody in their right mind liked that heaping pile.

As for me, I'm not really a fan of movies, nor do I listen much to what people say about their movie likes or dislikes.

Never, ever again do I want to watch Dog Soldiers. I even got creeped out watching Shaun of the Dead.

Let's se...

300, The Hangover, The Ugly Truth, Twilight (including the book).

Pretty much in those movies, I felt my brain dying. I pity any girl who likes Twilight...

As for Transformers 2, I had low expectations, but was expecting lot's of Baysplosions, if you had tried to count how many there were, you'd have lost count in the first 10 minutes of the movie.

Rofl! That's funny. *Ahem* Sorry. But you need to watch 28 Days Later if you "like" Shaun of the Dead. ;) I don't really like horror movies, as they make me paranoid like everyone who watches them. But I thought 28 Days was worth it. It's pretty epic.

I don't see why people are saying Transformer's 2 had unnecessary characters, if you've seen the original Transformers you'd think they had 200 characters short.

One movie I really can't stand is Twilight, just horrible to me. Also High School Musical 3, I remember half my school talking about going to see it and I tagged along and yea not so great.

Angels? I thought they were just aliens. Maybe doing an angels job? But I don't think they were angels...

And to whomever said The Dark Knight....BLASPHEMY! :( :P I do hate all the people who are major fans of the film just because of Heath Ledger's role as The Joker though. Drives me insane. He was great, but he wasn't the only great actor in the movie. >___>

Reminds me of one reviewer who not only reviewed Dark Knight badly, but also Wall-E. I believe she gave high ratings to some really crappy films (no not the Disney ones), but I still suspect she was paid off...

TWILIGHT Worst movie EVER. Acting was horrible. Everyone was not even "attractive" ... I mean... it was just bad... horrible, making a mockery out of Vampires. >.< The girl who played bella SUCKED. She can't even act.
(Taylor Lautner was okay) But, seriously, If I had the chance to. I would punch whats his face... the one who played edward cullen in the face...
The books are much better, but still not "amazing"

And oh my god... Napoleon Dynamite. D8 Absolute worst movie... ever; yet everyone is in love with it. The whole movie, the characters were like -.- durrr hurr |B -braindead-. It was ridiculous.

I can totally quote Napoleon Dynamite, and yes, I love the Dark Knight mainly for Ledger.

Year One sucked a bunch of arse. I don't even know why I bothered. Everyone else in the theater found it quite hilarious.

Any movie Will Ferrel is in is downright bad to me. That guy is such an unfunny, lousy actor. I think one of the few movies he was in that I enjoyed was Stranger Than Fiction. But he's got some decent enough movies out. :/

Also, if anyone actually found The Goods funny, I would be amazed. It seriously looked like the worst movie ever, haha. But that's just my opinion. I usually like movies that most people dislike.

But I agree with you on the other two. Watched Napoleon Dynamite in school once for some reason. Just...so... stupid. And not even stupid funny. Just stupid stupid.

And Transformers is boring.

I must agree with "UP," I thought it'd be this unforgettable religious experience. I was kind of expecting abstract cinematography with the underlying message being inspiration to live life fully, but it was actually pretty gloomy for a film primarily aimed at young audiences. Beautifully rendered, though.

Other than that, I'd have to say "The Happening." Celebrities were promoting it, my friends were flipping shart when it came out...sorry, but "The Sixth Sense" was Shyamalamadingdong's prime, his other work to me is unimpressive. I think he, as a director, is exceedingly overrated. "The Happening" was just silly. The acting was embarassing, the plot was boring and shamelessly illogical. I understand he was trying to divulge this "humanity should probz stop exploiting every single species the world has provided including its own, if we continue to be so wicked we'll only end up killing ourselves" political statement, but it was poorly and mindlessly executed. "That's not an idea, Mr. Shyamalan, that's a twist!"

Let me just say, the hate will come after I post this... but most people are to stuck in thier 12 year old pre-teen fantasy world to understand.*loves you for bravely dissing Twilight...those fans are rabid*

OMG YES. This theater called the Garland Theater plays it every once in a while. and everyone dresses up, screams out lines, squirts squirt guns, throws toilet paper, etc.

And it makes the movie very unenjoyable. (sp?)

I loathe the movie 'The Princess Bride'. I cannot comprehend why people think it's a good movie. We ended up watching it at least four times in Band last year because people were obsessed with it. :cer_pissed:

I'm also not a fan of:
- Twilight [Gah! It was just horrendous!!]
- Harry Potter 3 -6 [Don't even bother sticking to the storyline!]
- Transformers 2 [So much unnecessary sexuality added! When I go to see an action movie, I'm there for the action, not some stupid sexual scenes!]
- Spaceballs [I don't even want to say anything . . .]
- The Mummy [I just don't like it.]
- The Descent [I saw the creatures running around my room for weeks! I was completely terrified! I will never ever watch a horror movie again!]

Napoleon Dynamite, American History X, and Saw II-Whatever number they're flogging that dead franchise on now. I remember seeing the first Saw and thinking it was alright. The second made me wonder why the hell I'm wasting my money to see a bunch of people mutilate themselves for the millionth time, and then that horror was dead. I have yet to enter another horror movie until something rebuilds the genre.

Napoleon Dynamite... that just sucked. Everyone at school went to see it and thought it was great. SO I went a couple days later with some of them and I thought it SUCKED. I can't believe I had to pay to see some tool (actually, he wasn't even a tool. Napoleon was the whole hardware store) talk in a friggin monotone and draw crappy artwork. Total waste of film. And then the rest of my family discovered it and loved it.

And then American History X. I'm at least happy I didn't spend money on this one. I saw it on FX, and was immediately glad. There are skinhead movies (This is England), stereotyped skinhead movies that are still good (Romper Stomper) and then skinhead movies that don't even go by the stereotype.

The kid brother talks in a monotone displaying no emotion throughout that crappy excuse for a movie, and Edward Norton is a bearded Hammerskin. W T F? No self-respecting skin has a beard. It just looks stupid, and then that fat dude had an Anti-Heros tattoo. That really rubbed me the wrong way. And they didn't even get the stereotype fashion right. No boots, no flights, no button-downs... they dress like bros, for chrissakes! How the hell did that movie make money?

Twilight: I mean I've looked up a fair bit about it and it seems pretty interesting, but the movie imo wasn't as great as most people made it out to be. I mean the movie was still okay and enjoyable, but not entirely worth the hype. =/

High School Musical: Gah a lot of my friends like these movies, but personally I simply can't stand them. -.- My younger sisters watch it all the time so sadly I know most of the songs and plot off by heart. >.< My reaction to hearing it yet again is priceless. XD

Twilight. When I saw it, I was hyper, and there were hundreds of people there too. Actually they weren't really people. They were just hollow shells of their former selves, before they sold their souls to the devil Stephenie Meyer. Because of all the energy I managed to accumulate, I thought it was good. About a week later, after all of it wore off, I realized that it was absolutely horrible, and I actually paid money to see that pathetic piece of fanservice people call a movie. D:

Also, I'm not all that fond of Napoleon Dynamite. It was so stupid, and I didn't find it funny at all. After watching it, I felt like I had just wasted a good portion of my life, that could have been spent on something slightly more productive. Playing video games, that is. >.>

i liked the new harry potter apart from the ending of course.I'm a devout HP fan, and was really disappointed with the latest movie. It was pretty much a giant cliffhanger with a bunch of awkward romances between awkward teenagers, and Draco being ~emo~. Hopefully the last film (which will apparently be a twelve hour tl;dr split) will be decent.

sidenote: twelve hour = scarcasm
