So you ever have those couple movies that you can't stand, but everyone else seems to love? Well, in this video, I talk about ten of those very films that kind of annoy me, and my puzzlement over why everyone else seems to go gaga over them. This is the first time I'm experimenting with being on camera in order to conquer my stage fright. No rehearsal. No script. Just me and the camera blabbing for an hour.

So what are YOUR thoughts, guys? What are some movies and/or TV shows that you can't stand, yet everyone else praises as the greatest thing ever?

One movie I hate is "Christmas Story". I don't know, it's just mean-spirited from beginning to end, I don't like anybody, and it leaves me feeling cold.

No offense to anyone who likes it, of course.

Doctor Who, and Star Wars. Can't stand either personally(hate Doctor Who more, honestly, but I'm growing to resent being drowned in a movie franchise I find mediocre as well), and get crucified if I mention that anywhere near a geek community. If you like them rad, but I'm not a fan.

Also not a huge fan of Steven Universe, honestly, though that has less to do with me thinking it's bad, and more to do with me thinking it's kind of wildly inappropriate for a kids show.

Also wouldn't really call Frozen a well loved movie. I've seen WAY more people hate it, than like it.

any given Disney movie, especially Hunchback of Notre Dame. it had such promise and failed on it so badly that i cringe throughout, except for Frollo.

i agree with Epi that SU is too inappropriate for kids. rape allegories, much?

Only one I can think of right now is No Country for Old Men. It's fine if people look at it as a good drama, but I just saw a lot of boring fucking around.

Marvel movies. But especially Guardians of the Galaxy. They're all variations on the same formula and require too much knowledge of the Marvel universe/lexicon to be enjoyable or exciting. Good guys fight bad guys. Good guys forget friendship and things turn bad. Good guys remember friendship and use it to defeat underdeveloped bad guy man and stop him from acquiring the nebulous power object/objective.

Also Chris Pratt is a cringeworthy cock with no charisma.

Tennant Who is overrated. The Donna stuff is good, but the Rose stuff is mostly cringeworthy, and the Martha stuff is just meh. Actually, Rose in general. And Clara.

See? I can say bad things about Who. Except for Troughton. Speak ill of my Acting God, and we must fight.

Edit: Since the OP said movies, um...Gone With The Wind? Okay-ish, but I've never seen what the big deal's all about. I think you have to be Southern, or something.

Superhero movies, the Marvel films more than anything. I mean, I liked phase 1, all the movies leading up to the Avengers... but I feel like they should've ended there.

Yeah, what Megatronski said. Some of the later Marvel movies still have some charm to me, but the big buildup was The Avengers, and now that we've had a sequel, they need to up their game a lot to make it exciting again.

Also... idk if this counts as 'hate', but I've never been able to finish Howl's Moving Castle. I've tried like 3 times, and I just get midway through and my interest kind of peters out. At least I read all the book and loved it :'D

Star trek (the abrams one) what a huge mess of a plot, relying on contrivance after contrivance. The characters were crappy pantomime versions of what they were supposed to be. Kirk's hands on badboy thing turned up to 200 for no reason so now he steals cars and starts bar fights before everyone decides he really needs to be in command of a starship. Just a disaster but when I walked out everyone loved it and I heard it had some outrageous rotten tomato score. It was like I'd gone through the looking glass.


I'm also right up there with the doctor who hate. Every episode is the same plot (doctor meets disposable humans, zombie of some sort picks them off one by one, doctor reverses it at last second, everyone gives him metaphorical oral sex) and the doctor's character seems like the "friend of a friend" that you hope doesn't show up to a party. Just a twee jerk....

I love zombies and I love twee...they just manage to ruin both.


Oh and the transformers movies. Jesus god balls. I loved transformers before they got Bay all over them. I think the reason I despise these things is that they each ruined something that I loves.

2001: A Space Odyssey. I love sci-fi. I love space and stories set in space and thoughtful movies and all my life everyone has been praising this movie as the apex of the genre, and I could barely make it through. I can't help but notice that whenever I mention that, people come out of the woodwork to explain to me how it all actually made sense because in the book...and I check out because, frankly, if you can't make the movie stand on its own, then you shouldn't make the movie. In fact, aside from Doctor Strangelove, I'm pretty sure Kubrick is wildly overrated in general. I guess A Clockwork Orange and The Shining were alright, but I've never watched either one a second time.

The reboot Star Trek movies have been mentioned, and as such, I would like to point out that I kind of like them on their own, I don't think they're necessarily bad movies, it's more that the first two don't feel anything like Star Trek. They're bad Star Trek. The third one is better, but still a bit off.

Off the top of my head, Episodes 5 and 6 of Star Wars. I'd say the series, but I liked Episode 4 for what it was, I loved Rogue One, and Episode 7 is a love or hate at this point. Then there's the prequels...

Starship Troopers. It seems to be pretty polarizing but I keep hearing people mentioning they liked it. The only part I did like was the commercial(?)/propaganda scenes, which I thought were pretty apt satire (Might've been training or recruitment videos or something, it's been a while).

Also: Rubber. Just wtf.

I detest James Bond. Yes all of them. He's such an unlikable character who does unlikable things. I just don't like what those films were made to be. I just don't care about him.

Additionally, Star Wars is boring, and without needing to get too specific, I have hated every single war film I've ever seen.

Superhero movies. I find them boring, predictable and often pusssified version of the original comic.

Also, Star Wars. The original three movies are fine, but I don't understand why this series has such a massive fanbase. It's nothing special in my mind.

I can't bring myself to like Ghibli movies. IDK if it's the artstyle, but I still think the tracks are wonderful.
Also to second Jammy, James Bond movies. Just whut.

Hahahah. Gonna go with this one as well. I can handle boring, but by the end this just felt pointless instead. Especially the ending. Watched it with a friend and we both felt trolled.

Other'n that... The Transformer movies? I just couldn't get into them. I mean, someone out there must like them if they're still being made, or something.

I dunno how loved it is, but I absolutely despised Predestination.
