This week, just because a movie is popular doesn’t mean everyone is going to like it. This week, we take a look at movies we really dislike, but for some reason everyone else thinks is brilliant.

  1. I generally try not to be the contrarian guy who hates something everyone else loves, just live and let live for the most part.

    That being said, there are two generally beloved standouts that i cannot stand.

    One is Donnie Darko, a movie so joyless with characters i cannot get behind or root for, and a cover of Mad World that i could not escape in college because everybody loved HOW PROFOUND THIS ACOUSTIC SLOWED DOWN PIANO COVER is. So many video and animation projects got made in my classes with that stupid cover version in the 2 or 3 years around that movie.

    The other is Big Lebowski, and i say that as a pretty big Coens fan. I generally hate stoner humor, and again, it was one of those movies that was near unavoidable in college. Everyone quoted it, everyone dressed up as the Dude on halloween, and everybody was consuming sandwiches at 1am in their dorm rooms laughing at this movie while i just wanted to sleep because this is the third time you’ve watched it this week guys, it’s just playing on HBO on a loop in 2001. That and 2 Fast 2 Furious.

    So i guess that’s three standouts.

    And Rodrigo is 100% right, Forrest Gump has aged horribly and inadvertantly whitewashed 50 years of American history.
