i think you missed the point. the title of the thread is movies that everyone else seems to love, but you hate or something to that effect. not movies that most anyone with any sense hates. for everybody that loves the movies you've listed, there are 10 people that hate them, and a thousand people who are indifferent - with the exception of Star Wars, if you are referring to the original movies from the 70's and 80's.

The Dark Knight - yes, Heath Ledger did a great Joker, but every single aspect of the film other than his performance is ****ing torture.

The Sixth Sense - really??? the little twist ending there makes it all worth two hours of boring dreck?

The Hangover (i dont know about hate, but was very disappointed in. way overrated for sure. i'll take Very Bad Things -same premise- over The Hangover any day.)

I concur..waste of time.
I also hate Pulp Fiction, & Inglorious Bastards. Everyone else I know disagrees, so I know my taste is unusual in movies.

The Kill Bill movies.

I find them unwatchable. If I got a sexual thrill from watching scenes of depravity and gruesome ultraviolence, I'd be a Quentin Tarantino fan. I'm glad I'm not like that, but it disturbs me to think how many are. Violence as pornography.


Pan's Labryinth. The director of Hellboy really let me down with this one.

Misery. I read the novel but Kathy Bates was too much for me on the big screen. She portrayed her character Annie Wilkes a little too well.

So everybody who likes Tarantino films gets a sexual thrill from violence? Pffffft, come off it. Tarantino films are mainly lots of (good) dialogue and storytelling with violence occurring here and there. His work doesn't consist of just violence montages. Get real.

I remember seeing and reading reviews of his debut Reservoir Dogs. Everybody called it a very violent. Then they all backpedaled when they realized it only had four scenes of violence and had far more scenes of funny dialogue.

As a great director said (I believe it was DePalma), you get penalized for filming violence well.

Mine is The Sound of Music.

Even as a kid, I was never interested when it came on TV every year. I had never even seen the whole thing all the way through, but the parts I saw, I found really annoying.
Then as an adult, since my boyfriend said it was such a great childhood classic that he loved, I decided to watch the whole thing to see what I was missing.

Wow, didn't even know there were Nazis in it! That was surprising, but still hated it. It must just be me, because everyone else I meet gushes about it.

I'm sure no one else here hates the Sound of Music (I'm a freak), but what movie do you hate that everyone else you know loves?
American Pie
The 40 year old Virgin
Batman (all)
The Matrix (all)
The Piano (Holly Hunter-gag)
Anything with Jean Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagall
