No matter how much you may like a movie, chances are there are just as many people who despise it. Which films seem to have the most haters this year … and why?December 30, 2015 at 11:29 pm #204348
Joy, and I don’t think it even had a chance.December 31, 2015 at 12:08 am #204349
I can’t lie. I was sectretly gunning for JOY to flop. That’s what happens when a film is overhyped to the heavens before it even starts production. The day the film was announced, O Russel fan boys were already singing the “overdue Oscar” hymn and proclaiming it the Best Picture frontrunner. It’s like with David O Russel, his fans try to make his films happen with regards to awards. So you can’t really blame the detractors. I can guarantee you when David O Russel’s next film project gets announced, awards forums will be ablaze with O Russel’s much eluding Oscar. And how he is definitely winning it this time.December 31, 2015 at 1:25 am #204350
For many of us who loved the earlier efforts of Quentin Tarantino, this latest film is a stunning disappointment. The cartoonish violence, the uninspired plot and the fevered racism apparently has fostered a serious backlash.December 31, 2015 at 1:26 am #204351
Agree. I hate Joy as well. I really don’t understand why the academy loves David O’Russell so much. His movies are quite overrated. I hate the fact that he recruited Lawrence, Cooper and De Niro in all his recent 3 movies. I hate the fact that he is writing the script for specifically one actor/actress.December 31, 2015 at 1:30 am #204352
The Hateful Eight
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
All of these films, by ridiculously overrated directors, have been nauseatingly overhyped by fools who don’t realize that “fanboy” is a pejorative.December 31, 2015 at 3:27 am #204353
I hated JOY, it’s the worst movie of the year.December 31, 2015 at 5:32 am #204354
I can think of two: Joy and The Danish Girl. But they were hated with good reason as they are both terrible movies. Joy was a mess and The Danish Girl was like watching paint dry. I think before they even filmed, Tom Hooper said that Eddie Redmayne would surely win an Oscar for his performance. Please, his performance was awful. It was so tic-y and unnatural.
Joy was an example of why you shouldn’t buy into your own hype. David O. Russell figured that if he repeats the same formula: casting the same actors, putting Jennifer Lawrence in a role fit for an actress twice her age, choppy editing, loud performances, etc., he is going to keep creating buzz and he’ll be closer to winning an Oscar. Sorry, David, but better luck next time!December 31, 2015 at 6:23 am #204355
Yeah those two have to be the winners. Joy and The Danish Girl. People were hoping praying betting they would be awful and would flop. They sort of got their way on both so now there’s actual reason to hate them. But in reality both movies have plenty of things to admire and when you read the comments from certain people you know they were just predisposed and are hating just for the fun of it. Not giving them a chance at all.
I’m sure that whatever money Joy ends up making is going to hurt these people because it won’t actually be a flop at all. But at least they can rest happily that it didn’t go as acclaimed as it could’ve gone.December 31, 2015 at 9:19 am #204356
Out off all the film this year, Fantastic 4 has got to be the most hated, But out of all the Oscar films it has got to be The Danish Girl, especially with conservative viewers. I’ve also noticed a bunch of Star Wars fanboys have turned on Mad Max because they want to increase TFA chance of getting into BPDecember 31, 2015 at 9:31 am #204357
I don’t understand why people want a movie to fail and hope it sucks.December 31, 2015 at 9:55 am #204359
Probably both “Joy” and “The Hafeful 8.” Neither deserve the level of derision they’re received. Lawrence has earned another Oscar nod, and so has Tarantino.December 31, 2015 at 10:34 am #204362
The Danish Girl
Before seeing them I wanted them to be bad because everyone called them frontrunners sight unseen and wouldn’t shut the fuck up about it. And now that I’ve seen all three, they were just as bad as I hoped. Joy and Suffragette, especially, are unwatchable messes that never should have been made.
