Some time ago Reddit users were asked to share their opinions and to answer the question:
Which insanely popular or successful movie do you secretly hate but are afraid to say in the open fearing backlash from fans?
Here are some of the answers:
1. Bohemian Rhapsody
It is very surprising, but not all fans of Queen and Freddie Mercury liked the movie. They were able to find a lot of inaccuracies in the script.
"I'm scared to say this but Bohemian Rhapsody. I'm a massive Queen fan and love Freddie Mercury, but I had some issues with the movie. I thought Rami Malek did an amazing job and I walked away from the movie feeling great and inspired, but I have my qualms."
2. The Hunger Games
Have you ever come across the fact that you are madly in love with a book, but the film is awful? Some of fans of the book The Hungry Games consider its screen version very unsuccessful.
"The Hunger Games is probably my favourite book series but the first three movies suck. I didn't watch the last one."
3. Black Panther
The movie is very colorful, bright, with amazing special effects and an interesting plot. However, not all people found it worthy of Oscar awards.
"Try being a black person and saying that you don't like Black Panther. I told some of my family members that I thought it was a fine movie, but wasn't like an Oscar contender. You would've thought I said slavery didn't happen or something. That said, I still found it to be a very entertaining and important movie. I just don't think that makes it 'great'."
4. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
Some Reddit users like Harry Potter but do not like Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them at all. And this is why:
"I used to be a huge fan of Harry Potter (those movies ain't that great, either) and Rowling completely lost my respect with this obvious cash grab that demolished the original universe. It just makes me angry. I have no clue why people like it."
Opinions are also different about this cartoon that created by the Disney company. For example, one of the opinion was the following:
"Watched it once, thought "eh Disney," and six years later remnants of it still continue to surface."
6. La La Land
For those who have not seen musicals before it is a masterpiece, but for those who like musicals it is perhaps not. What is your opinion? Is it worth all its Oscar awards?
"It was just a love letter to musicals of the past. Well done but not groundbreaking or particularly memorable in and of itself. All of my friends who had never really seen musicals went crazy for it and I couldn't stand hearing the songs from it."
7. Jurassic World
Do you like Jurassic World? Do you think everybody likes it? You are definitely wrong. Here is one of the examoles:
"I don't get how it became so popular. I secretly wanted the dinosaurs to win and eat all the main characters."
8. The Hobbit
This is another case when the book turns out to be much better than the movie according to some fans.
"I read The Hobbit twice and was so thrilled for the movies to come out. The first was way too animated and catered too much to younger kids in my opinion. Didn't even bother with the second one. They just don't feel like they're part of the LOTR universe that Peter Jackson perfected with the original trilogy of films."
9. Wonder Woman
And here we again see comics. Some people think that Wonder Woman in the movie was not so cool and strong as in the comics about her.
"I found the movie to be extremely underwhelming and a mediocre movie at best. I’m 100% for more strong female leads (I’m a woman myself and I definitely think mainstream media needs to do a better job showing the diversity of women with strength and power), but I felt like Wonder Woman barely scraped the surface when it comes to displaying strength physically (e.g. realistic muscle mass) and emotionally (e.g. boring plot and superficial motivations)."
10. Mr. Bean
Movies about Mr. Bean are good for family watching on a rainy Saturday evening. They cheer up and make have a lot of positive emotions. Does everyone agree with this?
"Like I get it, but I don’t want to watch more than 30 seconds of it."
11. The Godfather
Great actors, great story, great music. It would seem that there cannot be those who do not like this film.
However, there are people who do not think that it is worth all that hype.
"Growing up it seemed like The Godfather was everyone's favourite movie and hyped to the highest of heavens. When I would say that I hadn't watched it yet, I would get retorts of "OMG, why not? It's the best movie ever!" all the time followed by looks of disappointment and disbelief. When I finally did see it, I thought it was a decent movie but nothing really worth all that hype."
12. The Dark Knight trilogy
Someone likes old movies about Batman, some people like new ones. Someone likes both variants. Some people do not like any. Which category do you belong to?
"Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy got worse with every subsequent installment. Batman Begins was an amazing film. The Dark Knight suffers from many plot holes, oversaturation of characters and a lacklustre, message-less finale. And Dark Knight Rises is just plain bad. Unbelievable villains, no sense of time progression, glaring gaps in narrative and a closing scene that invalidates the whole damn movie.
It went from excellent, to disappointing, to outright shit in my opinion."
It turns out that not all viewers liked the movie that was so popular around the world. What about you? do you agree with the opinion below?
"I really don't understand everyone's love of it, or why there will be a sequel. I just found it painful to watch."
14. The Notebook
There is hardly a girl who did not watch this romantic movie about the love of a guy and a girl from different segments of society. Does everybody like it?
"I don’t get what’s so romantic about a guy hanging on a ferris wheel to make you go on a date with him. That’s basically blackmailing."
15. Mamma Mia!
It's hard to believe that some people did not appreciate such a bright movie with amazing actors, and most importantly ABBA’s songs! However, they exist. Here is one of the examples:
"I can’t STAND that godforsaken movie. I’ve given it two chances and still no dice. I will never see the hype in it."
