Your Unpopular Movie Opinions

Submitted by Moe on February 13th, 2015 at 4:31 PM

Since this is today's theme, I've always had a very unpopular view of a certain movie, and would love to hear other's opinions based off of movies and/or actors.  Mine: I think Wedding Crashers is a terrible movie, and not funny.

I can't stop watching Pitch Perfect and Legally Blonde once I start. I can't explain it other than I enjoy them I guess.

I can't believe that my "thumbs up" for movies here goes to those two, Red Dawn, and Iron Eagle. I had to toss something fairly manly in there at the end.

I partially disagree. Those movies are certainly out there, but they've always been out there. The fact is that people just remember the ones that aren't like that. But movies have always been recycled, there have been tons of remakes and re-imaginings. Some of the movies concidered the greatest of all time are actually remakes.

The fact of the matter is that, yes, you can find similarities between movies. You can find the same in books and music and most everything else. Most ideas have been done. But that doesn't necessarily make movies worse now than in the past. You have to take them for what they are. And I'm typing this while watching "Make Way For Tomorrow" from 1937.

Malik makes beautiful pictures. He has interesting and worthy ideas. But he desperately needs an editor, both for his scripts (which he doesn't much follow anyway) and for his finished film, because he's terrible at actually crafting a story in terms of pacing, flow, etc. But because it's different some claim it's better. Meh

If you argued Frozen was the greatest cartoon movie (aimed at kids) of all time, you'd be in a pretty good spot.  It has some really unique aspects that put it in a class by itself -- among one point, it has no evil character, no one who makes kids feel uncomfortable or scared.  It has some bad guys, but not like an evil witch.  As grownups we don't appreciate that; young girls particularly gravitate to that film because there isn't anything in it that scared or worries them.

he is just a "bad guy" not some scary monster and he "tries to kill her" passively by not helping her, not by actually committing a violent murder.  Yeah, at the very end he does actually try to kill Elsa, but you have to have SOME conflict or the movie would suck.

As a father of a young daughter I agree with the above poster these things DO make a difference.

I thought titanic was a boring and dumb movie. I'd imagine that's not an unpopular view on this blog, but a lot of people seemed to like that movie
