Which Movie Does Everybody Else Seem To Love That You Just Don't?

"What's all the fuss about?" - You

The greatest thing about motion pictures is that everybody is entitled to their own opinion: one man's Citizen Kane is another man's Grown-Ups 2. And the truth with regards to this, really, is that all opinions are subjective - there's no "right" or "wrong" when it comes to analysing movies. Grown-Ups 2 isn't technically a worse film than Citizen Kane (if you think that it's better, though, please consider therapy), because what are we judging it on? What's the official criteria, except for what we've been told makes for a "good" movie? It's all down to opinion, people. Which got us thinking about movies that the world collectively seems to have embraced, in a roundabout sort of way. The Shawshank Redemption, Back to the Future, Toy Story; as "invincible" as these films seem to be, they still have their detractors, because if there's something in the world that we're absolutely not short of, it's people who hate things that other people love. So which movie do you find yourself rallying against, despite the fact that you literally feel like you're the only person in the world with such an opinion? Which movie's popularity confuses you? Our picks goes to The Usual Suspects, which is constantly ranked and rated as one of the best and most brilliant movies of all-time, despite the fact that it's all style, no substance, doesn't hold up on multiple viewers, and is nowhere near as interesting as it pretends to be. Sure, there are great performances from the core cast, but the frequent logical lapses and unreliable narrator aspects don't improve the movie in as so much as they destroy it. To pass the time, sure, it's a slick, taut and intriguing crime flick... but it's also an incredibly difficult movie to "love." So which movie does everybody else seem to love that you just don't? Let us know in the comments section below.
