    It's like saying you hate all western animation; It's just so broad, how can you possibly hate all of it?
    the only good anime is the simpsons

    the best part of game of thrones was how it dominated tv culture for years and then was SO BAD in the final season it completely disappeared just like that.

    Die Another Day was a fine Bond movie. Its opening scene is up there with the best, and the oft-mocked stupid shit in the latter half (magic plastic surgery... invisible car... Halle Berry in general...) is equalled or outdone by stupid shit in prior entries.

    The first season was hot garbage. They just tried to remake the original UK version almost word for word and it did not work at all. It is actually amazing it even got a second season. After that, they took the same premise but went in their own direction and it works way better. If you are interested at all, give it another go and just start with season two. You may like it more.

    Black Mirror is disgusting shit. If you like it, you are part of it.

    Yeah, they softened Steve Carrell's character considerably in s2 and beyond.

    In s1, they tried to make him like Ricky Jervais's character, a mean, small, vindictive asshole who had his own fiefdom that was The Office and everyone just had to put up with it. Which was unpalatable for American audiences because fuck, our work places are already like that. My conjecture is in the UK that a character like Ricky Gervais's wouldn't be tolerated because of the infamous British politeness, so seeing it on TV is fucking hilarious to think of. From s2, Michael Scott is a loveable idiot who truly has the best intentions but is so goddamn stupid it always blows up in his face, and his workers are more like the disappointed parents always cleaning up after him. Dwight became the character with the sinister undertones, but even that was cut with more character than Ricky Gervais's boss character ever had.

    Hmf...I just realized that "The Librarians" hsd four seasons.
    After gagging through the first episode of the first season, then attempting the 2nd episode and had to shut it off after 10mins, I had to conclude that it's aimed at a pre-Sesame Street demographic.
    Four seasons? Omg...

    Movies should be light intertainment and any sort of award show should reflect that.

    Meaning award shows should be filled with MCU movies, Witcher series and stuff like that.

    The winner of the best movie at the Oscars is usually a sign that its not worth seeing.

    Movie/tv critiques are the worst qualified for their respective lines of work in the world.

    I dont know if this is unpopular or just contoversial so i'l try to be on the downlow with it:

    I dont want to see any more female reeshoots of popular movies with male leads. Make new IP's for great female actors and show them the respect they deserve.

    I havent seen a single movie starring VinDiesel that was worth seeing besides perhaps the first F&F

    On that topic i dont understand why they made more then two of those or why they went away from the original concept. The modern versions of those movies are useless.

    I loved the old(4-6) star wars movies but they dont stand the test of time. They arent worth watching today.

    Johnny Depp is overrated. Also he seems like a weird dude. Just... weird.

    Harrison Ford isnt that great of an actor. He just landed some roles that fit his persona really well and he had the right looks. He should be more gratefull towards star wars.

    I dont understand what the deal with George Clooney is. I dont think i've ever really seen him act.

    eeeeeeh aaand rogue one is the worst star wars movie.

    I respect your opinion but this is kind of a paradox:

    Game of Thrones is overrated to high heavens
    I don't plan on ever watching GoT
    Edit:

    Also something to add.

    If Bond isnt allowed to be a womanizer and a bit of a scumbag anymore they should just stop making them.

    I disliked Friends immensely and Saved by the Bell and Gilmore Girls.. and, and Indiana jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was not as horrid as everyone made it out to be. Not the best one out of the franchise but still it got a lot crap.

    Time to Rustle some jimmies.

    All Sitcoms are terrible.

    Game of Thrones isn't good

    Joker is overrated

    Lord of the Rings is boring trash.

    Heath Ledger's Joker was terrible

    Idris Elba should be the next James Bond.

    Miles Morales is the superior Spiderman(Don't know if this is unpopular or not, but stating it anyways.)

    Garry Chalk is a better Optimus Prime than Peter Cullen

    David Kaye is a better Megatron than Frank Welker.

    The next Green Lantern Movie should be Jon Stewart and not Hal Jordan.

    Spongebob was never good

    Harry Potter movies are horrible.

    Fist movie came out around the same time of LotR.
    LotR was/is awsome and brutal (trowing a torch in the face, decapitated orcs and the feels when Gandalf fell). Harry then felt like some kid movie with some really cringy acting. So i never liked them to start with.

    My wife (then gf) did like them, so i kinda had to watch them all. And some plots don't make sense. Some stories and things where suddenly there without explanation or back story. Not to mention Harry is a massive Gary Stu..

    Most television is boring, unfunny, banal, and predictably formulaic.
    Movies are even more so, the recent super hero movies going into dumbed-down versions of comic book arcs and acting like the directors and writers are actually fucking doing anything but reading from an illustrated script.
    And frankly I'm happy the entertainment industry is dying, it's needed a market-purge for a while now.

    My dislike for Big Bang Theory, can be described by an image of one of *the characters projectile vomiting unto a child with a laugh track in the background.*

    The people watching it are saturated with that lowbrow vomit.

    A few people have said that to me (that its much better from S2 on)... I'll probably give it another look.

    I enjoyed the first few seasons, after that I pretty much hated it.
    My greatest fear is that one day, my MMO-Champion ignore list will run out of space.

    I fully expect to be in the minority but I loved Lost all the way through and the finale is up there among my top3 favorite episodes of the show.

    Considering the nature of the thread I haven't really questioned opinions...I mean that's what they are...
    But that Harry Potter movie was based upon an 11yr old child going to a school of magic with other children...a book that millions of children read. So why wouldn't you have already known that it was going to be just that; a movie for children to enjoy?

    I like all the matrix movies. I think the second and third have interesting concepts and symbolism, and the mechanics and powers are, if not always well defined, at least consistent enough to enjoy.

    Agreed on Endgame. I can tell you the entire plot of Infinity War pretty quickly, but Endgame? Nope... just felt silly and disjointed.

    As a massive fans of the original books, I can somewhat see what he means. The first two films felt like they were made by accountants. There was no real authenticity to the characters, who felt they were just recreating scenes from the book instead of adapting the book into a different medium. The films got steadily better in this regard as they went on by being adaptations with far better production value. But then they got lazy and literally took an opposite approach, by condensing the stories into rush jobs and straight up dropping key subplots. All in all I didn't really care for the films.
