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?
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.
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.
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.
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?
I have never met anyone who didn’t like Shaun of the Dead!!! Gasp!
