Film- Anything with a lot of blood and gore, movies like Date Movie, Epic Movie, etc.

TV- Most sitcoms, Award shows, American Idol, etc.

Music- Most mainstream top 40 music from 2005 or so to now, there are some I like or can tolerate but most of it is forgettable garbage. I also don't like Country songs like the following.

I feel songs like these are just begging to to reinforce the stereotype that people who like country music are drunk hillbillies.

Oh my, I HATE HATE HATE that god-awful song and songs like it. I'm really glad someone else hates it because I swear everyone else around me loves it. She sounds like she had rocks in her mouth while recording that song.

OK wasn't going to respond until you said that Canes, so I'm upping you for it. I HATE this new "country music" where anyone with a "twangy" guitar and hillbilly accent can whine about his beer gone warm and call it a classic. I love country, but this new country is the pits, worse than Britney Spears and Taylor Swift's worst.

LOVE some of those B&W 1950s sci-fi flicks like "The Day The Earth Stood Still", "Them", "Invaders From Mars", "Earth vs The Flying Saucers", "Tarantula", "The Deadly Mantis", "The Thing"....

Horror movies. I hate them. They're boring (recycled plots) and they wouldn't even be scary without the music. Plus the characters are usually monumentally stupid and DESERVE to die if only as a means of natural selection.

TV: reality shows, cable/satellite stations getting away from what they are about. Example TLC (The Learning Channel) well it went from learning to fat little girls shaking their butts for beauty pageants, and people who like to eat the stuffing from the furniture. Another I used to love watching the History Channel, all the shows about ancient kings, and shows about WWI, and WWII, the Civil War, American history, great ancient civilizations etc..., but now it's Ice Road Truckers, American Pickers, and shows about people cutting down trees.
Music: I think there is very little music that will stand the test of time that has been made in the past 15 or so years. It just seems like most music is assembled and then handed to the singer, rather than that musician, or group trying to create something great.
Movies: Apparently every one in the movies drives a Pinto, because every time some one bumps the bad guy car it explodes, not just a regular explosion, it's like they called in an airstrike and loosed an entire payload of laser guided missiles on that car.
