Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

I hate Top Gun. To me, it's emptier and more shallow than every Michael Bay movie put together. Yet, I hear many people and even other movies quote this movie like its the fucking gospel. I will never know what Top Gun has to offer. What movies do you hate that others just seem to love?

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

Transformers..all those Bay films. Aside from my fellow film students...every person I know around here loves them. I like bits and pieces..but I'll be damned if I love the films themselves.

and on the not hate but get annoyed that people praise it like crazy scale:

The Dark Knight. Look...I really really like the film. I do. I enjoy the fuck out of it. But it's not perfect. Very fucking well directed..but it has plot holes that people heavily overlook cuz it's a damn well made thing.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

I'm sure I can think of a couple more, but these were the first ones off the top of my head:

Forrest Gump
Crash
300

I realize those first two movies have very vocal detractors online, but in person, I haven't seen that and have actually been in some very heated discussions about them.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

Forrest Gump-I liked it when I was younger and felt I had to in order to fit with regular people, but then I realized regular people were kind of boring

American Pie-initially liked it and owned the DVD when it first came out . Once every apartment visitor wanted to watch it, and every comedy after it started imitating its gross out style, began to hate it.

Days of Thunder- I just do

Avatar, Fast and the Furious movies, Crash (Bullock movie), The Hurt Locker (I don't Actually hate it, I just find that I hate it when people talk to well of it. It was pretty good but nothing more).

300, though people don't admit to that as much any more, sort of like Limp Bizkit and Creed and fans.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

Some Like It Hot - Not especially funny, not especially interesting. I like a lot of Wilders other films A LOT more. The Apartment isn't really a comedy and yet it has more laughs than SLIH. When people say this is the BEST comedy of all time I roll my eyes. I don't know what people see in this movie.

Forrest Gump first comes to mind. I never liked it in 1994, and will never understand the love for the movie in 2012.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

I used to think Shawshank was the most boring movie I ever had to sit through. Took me 4 tries to watch it since I kept falling asleep. I appreciate it more now but still don't find it to be nearly as good as the majority. Probably because Tim Robbins annoys me quite a bit.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

Mostly comedies for me... anything Jackass, Sandler, Carey, or Borat type stuff I just can't get into. Never got the love for Superbad or Pineapple Express either.

I would add another overrated film from 1994: THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION.

In fact, if they'd combined the films and replaced Tim Robbins' character in SHAWSHANK with Hanks' Gump and left the basic plot structure of SHAWSHANK in place, only have everything that happens be the result of dumb luck and serendipity rather than careful planning, I might have liked that result a lot better.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

No Country For Old Men. Similar to some other comments, I don't necessarily HATE it, but really don't like it very much. I've just resigned to the fact that I'm in the minority because I haven't met anybody yet that doesn't love that movie. Just one of those things I keep my mouth shut about because I'd rather not be the 1% that argues with the 99%.

There's a certain 1% I'd rather be in than the 99% I'm stuck in!

I don't hate the movie but strongly agree that I get a little flustered when people point this out as one of the greatest comedies and Billy Wilder's best. The Apartment, Sunset Boulevard, Stalag 17 are better. I think Some like it Hot is my least favorite Wilder movie that I've seen. Maybe it's just because it has Marilyn Monroe? I don't fucking know.

Bridesmaids. I thought it was ok, but due to all the praise and success, I now hate it for being so overrated.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

Moulin Rouge - If it weren't for inconveniencing other people down my aisle I would have walked out. And I was at a dollar movie, when it actually cost a dollar. Everyone pretty much seems to love it though, go figure.

I'm not going to lie, I've seen my fair share of classics that I've adored, but Breakfast at Tiffany's did nothing for me.
