You want us to make a list of recommended movies that we watched and hated? Please entertain me by telling me why, for Pete's sake, why??

Out of principle I hate every movie that Eva Yojimbo loves.

I remember when terminator 3 came out I thought "Damn that was bad" but everyone else seemed to like it. Then about a year later everyone else hated it to for some reason. I hated it before it was cool to hate it.

Now most people online including me don't like the planet of the apes remake, but some of the people I work with like it and think the ending makes more sense then the original :scanners_head: :scanners_head:

I don't what is the big fuss about...Star Wars. Sure, it is good movie on its own but it just became like this cultural icon where it has legions of fanboys and plots (pre Original Trilogy and post Original Trilogy) that leave me very confused. It is fun movie in its own right but I just get what is the big deal, not that I hate it.

Also, High School musical, Harry potter amd Twlight.

a friend of mine dragged me to see it, no matter how many times i said it would be bad, she and the others were determined to see it, and not wanting to be alone for 3 hours on a friday night as usual, i went. Halfway through, the friend who dragged me to go got up from her seat 5 or so people away to come and apologize to me. I had been having a good time making fun of the movie the whole time though, even started clapping obnoxiously loud at the end

The Star Wars films in particular come to mind. Most of the comic book movies of the last 10 years, Harry Potter, too many others to name.

it was good in spite of him, not because of. Just like anything decent Keeanu Reeves has ever attempted to ruin with his presence.

With the exception of "Backdraft" and his pitch perfect narration in "Arrested Development" I absolutely hate everything Ron Howard has done throughout his entire career as a director.

Honest, I felt "The Grinch" was less of a piece of shit than "A Beautiful Mind" or "Cinderella Man".

His 90s stuff wasn't bad but lately....ugh.

Personally I thought Cinderella Man was worth watching and it didn't gain the ticket sales it needed simply because of the name.
