Unpopular Opinions about Movies (and Television Shows)

Also, Hans as a twist Villain was just dumb. There were no hints beforehand, it’s just like: “Hey, kids, this guys the Villain now!”

This is probably one of my most unpopular opinions, but:

I didn’t like Ghostbusters.

I just watched the original movie for the first time and didn’t like it. The plot doesn’t make any sense to me at all, and I didn’t get any of the jokes. This movie is a comedy that didn’t make me laugh at all. The effects are poor, even for it’s time. Really, other 80’s movies have way better effects. I watched this movie expecting to like it as much as Back to the Future, but, I was very disappointed. You can criticize me, but this movie is not my thing. The only thing I actually liked about this movie was the theme song, and that is pretty much it. I don’t hate this movie, but I don’t like it either.

IT’S THE STAY PUFT MARSHMALLOW MAN

And what’s with that?

If you didn’t laugh at the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, at least on the inside, then I guess you must really hate marshmallows or something, there’re very few reasonable explanations. (That’s a joke, by the way)

The Marshmallow Man was a funny concept, but the rest of the movie already drove me away, and I didn’t laugh even when everyone is covered in Marshmallow after the explosion. I admit that the scenes were funny, but all that End of The Word ghost ritual didn’t make any sense to me… and I didn’t like this movie because of this. Also, it happened way to fast. The whole movie is not even two hours, which is kinda insufficient for such a complicated story…

Though the movie gives off a good message, personally it came off kinda boring and didn’t really have an identity imo. It has rather good animation and the humor is surprisingly good but everything else in the story kinda falls flat in it’s pacing (mainly the final reveal that is meant for young kids to be surprised at) and the plot that honestly half doesn’t know what to do with itself at times (mainly with those weird trolls, they were the cute smol people of the movie meant to sell toys). Overall I wouldn’t say it’s either bad or good. It’s just bland like potato water.

A movie being overrated shouldn’t really effect your opinion on it imo.

I wish they had kept closer to the book for Frozen

The movie was inspired by the “Snow Queen” book by Hans Christian Andersen, but it wasn’t a straight up book adaptation with modifications like for example The Little Mermaid, also by H. Ch. Andersen. Since this was not supposed to by an adaptation but rather a original story with little inspiration, It’s acceptable in my opinion.

I believe he’s saying that the movie would have been more interesting if it had taken more plot elements from the original story; less a matter of being true to the original and more about making the movie more interesting (and a bit darker, if I’m remembering the original correctly). Might be wrong about that, though.

Elsa should have stayed evil

Probably the only reason this didn’t happen is because Elsa dolls would have not sold anymore…:laughing:

I know what book it’s based on, though the changes perplex me, as the little mermaid was changed to lighten the tone, while Frozen barely resembles(the much better in my opinion) book

More Unpopular opinions:

Most of the Disney Direct-to-DVD sequels aren’t really that bad. While a few of them are worthless, most of the I found to be decent to good. Can’t really see were the hate comes from.

I didn’t really like Ghostbusters.

Frozen is a good movie.

Moana is pretty good too.

Dead Men Tell No Tales was pretty good.

Prince of Egypt is an underrated master piece, and probably my favourite DreamWorks movie, to be honest.

Ghost Protocol is at a close tie with Fallout at being my favourite Mission Impossible movie.

Narnia is the best Book-to-Movie adaptation ever.

Wreak-it-Ralph isn’t that great. It’s a good movie, but not my favourite Revival Era Disney movie. I am looking forward to seeing the new one, though.

The Matrix is a masterpiece.

The Star Wars franchise is way to overrated. The original movies were the good ones, the new ones are just average… Don’t take from a franchise more then it has. Really, do we need all those TV Shows, Comics, etc to expend the franchise? I don’t even consider them canon to the movies, to be perfectly honest. Don’t get me wrong. I do like Star Wars, but It’s not my all time favorite movie like in the cases of most movie amateurs.

I prefer Indiana Jones over Star Wars

I liked all three Hobbit movies.

Home Alone 3 was pretty good. Can’t understand the exaggeratedly low score. I enjoyed it as much as the first two.

Don’t think that’s unpopular [quote=“LegoDavid, post:430, topic:44421”]

Haven’t seen the whole LoTR series so I have no say, but Dawn Treader was inaccurate [quote=“LegoDavid, post:430, topic:44421”]

True, but not my favorite dreamworks movie

Yeah, probably this is the reason it’s regarded as the worst Narnia movie. But the first movie… That was what I was talking about.

But the first movie wasn’t anything like the book

But seriously, they should have done a Magician’s Nephew movie.

It’s now trendy to retrospectively dislike once popular movies.

Why not? The first movie was very accurate to the book.

And yes, I want a Magician’s Naphew movie so badly. And a Horse and His Boy movie. Those were may favourite out of the books.
