5 Films Everyone Loves That I Don’t


I am going to do something different today, I am going to look at some of the most popular films that everyone I meet seems to rave over that I simply just don’t like. This doesn’t mean I think the acting is bad or the direction is bad, I just don’t understand the hype behind them. I am not going to number them just list five films. I do ask the question to you all though, do you think people get swayed into liking a film because other people say it is good?

The Godfather (1972)

I did watch this when I was younger and I do believe the performances are great, but it is so much talking I just think it would be nearly impossible to watch this film again.

Spiderman 2 (2004)

The web-slinging hero that faces Doc Ock in what many people considered the best of the original franchise. Like most films on this list I found this very boring and I don’t understand that at the time it was considered one of the best superhero films of its time.

Shaun of the Dead (2004)

Where do I start with this one, the jokes are lazy the attempts to make such whatever attitude to the zombie outbreak is awful. I am a big zombie film fan and I also like the right type of comedy involving them (Zombieland, Cockneys vs Zombies). I always say it will be one to miss but everyone else thinks its great.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)

The final chapter of the epic story, I did enjoy the first film in the series, but after watching two and three I questioned the point in them both, they are both the same film with a huge battle where you really can’t tell who was who with so many CGI characters you lose track of what is going on.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Now for the truly controversial choice, I respect Tarantino I think he is amazing but after watching this a early teenager I really didn’t enjoy it and don’t understand why people think this is his best work.

What would you pick as the films that everyone loves that you just don’t like?
