Re: Top 50 Most Hated Films of All Time

There's some crap on there but some of the choices I personally don't agree with.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), Terminator: Salvation (2010), Resident Evil (2002), Clash Of The Titans (2010), Godzilla (1998), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), Forrest Gump (1994).

Not fantastic films but those are some that I enjoy to some extent.

Nobody hated anything before 1977?

Without delving into which films have some merit or not, I'm pretty much OK with this list.

Nice to see Forrest Gump getting some well deserved hate.

A cluster of M. Nights work near the top.

Good to see Speilberg and Lucas and their respective atrocities in the top two spots

Re: Top 50 Most Hated Films of All Time

Most of these are either sequels, remakes, or adaptations of popular stories from other media (television, novels, comics, video games). Obviously fans of these works have high expectations for the movie, thus the hate when the films are not very good.


17. Love Actually (2003) - I know not everyone loves this, but I've never heard anyone trash it like most of the other movies on this list.

14. Avatar (2009) - and yet it's also the most successful movie of all time

13. Lady In The Water (2006)
12. The Happening (2008)
11. The Last Airbender (2010)

Shyamalan for the win!


03. Forrest Gump (1994) - for some reason this movie is like the internet's whipping boy. It really doesn't deserve the vitriol it gets online.

Re: Top 50 Most Hated Films of All Time

I would ask why Birth of a Nation, Triumph of the Will, or The Last Temptation of Christ aren't included, but I guess the theme was more of a "fanboy hate."

Re: Top 50 Most Hated Films of All Time

I can agree with some of those on there because they deserve it but naming Kingdom of the Crystal Skull the most hated film of all-time? It wasn't perfect but it's nowhere near my most hated film. All of the movies seem to be disappointing sequels in a franchise.

I don't think I've ever hated a film. I've been disappointed or not really liked a movie so much. Never hate. It's just a movie. What in these movies would make one feel that much negative emotion?

It's more like Top 50 Most Hated Films Since The Internet Became A Thing.
(with Exorcist II randomly thrown in there)

A top 50 list of worst movies that doesn't include Wing Commander is a huge fail.

I'd need to know what "hated" means in terms of this list to be able to understand the rankings.

I don't get a lot of the list though. Sure, a lot of them are shit, but I don't hear people consistently saying they hate really anything on this list.

Re: Top 50 Most Hated Films of All Time

Huh? Seems a lot of grudge against George Lucas. I can somewhat agree with Phantom Menace, but not Indy.

I notice Showgirls is absent from the list, as are several Nicolas Cage efforts.
