    There are films that have critics singing it’s praise. Friends enraptured with it. High caliber film making. Awards galore. As a film buff, all evidence points to you liking the movie very much…. But you don’t, not at all. What’s your I -should-like-this-movie-but-don’t movie?

    Two come to mind for me.

    Moulin Rouge….. it gave me a headache.

    Everything Everywhere All at Once…. What?!?!

    The Irishman comes to mind, what a boring tedious experience, i fell asleep like three times and i didn’t get the love it received at the time.

    Please! These gays, they're trying to murder me!

    Nomadland-I didn’t hate it. It was just a shrug of a film. I think the meandering nature of the film was intentional though. Chloé Zhao is incredible with landscapes and scenery though. The way it’s shot just makes human dramas feel so miniscule in the context of mountains and valleys. I want a documentary about the anthropocene with Zhao doing cinematography, narrated by Attenborough.

    This year: Everything Everywhere All at Once. I just don’t get the hype at all, the movie was ridiculous and doing the most at every scene, a cringefest for some moments. I appreciate the original concept, but I don’t think it was executed well.

    I always felt the Irishman was more respected than loved.

    This is coming from someone who thought the movie was a masterpiece

    Parasite, no idea why this is considered better than 12 Angry Men on Letterboxd.

    In terms of movies I SHOULD like but don’t, nothing beats Boyhood. It is completely up my alley: I have a very similar upbringing to Richard Linklater that he used as inspiration for the film, and I love movies that are basically vignettes/windows into moments in time. But Boyhood’s lack of a central theme makes the twelve-year-filming even more gimmicky, and I got incredibly bored after the whole “drunken abusive stepdad” plot line was done. Oh well, I still have massive respect for it, and Linklater is evolving the concept that could theoretically fix those problems with Merrily We Roll Along so that should be awesome.

    There Will Be Blood. Masterful performance from Daniel Day-Lewis but unrelentingly and painfully grim movie. Watched it once and it was more than enough.

    Nevertheless, I wholeheartedly agree with this quote: “I hate most people. Sometimes I look at them and see nothing worth liking” .

    Same. Also “The Collateral”. I was pumped to see it and it was ok at best. Foxx as supporting at the Oscars is among the worst category frauds.

    “Murder on the Orient Express” by Kenneth Branagh has almost made me aggresive. Grim colors, wasted all-star cast, ignored clues, dumb shootings and beatings (no trusting that the plot is interesting enough for the audience to follow). He’s a talented filmmaker but not for mystery genre. It doesn’t compare to Lumet’s film in any way and Rian Johnson stole its thunder with delicious “Knives Out”.

    I hope someone makes a picture about the director of “Blonde” with several lies about his life. It should be illegal to do what he has done.

    I didn’t get the praise for this one at all. A well made movie with unique point of view. I like the way non actors are implemented throughout the film, but it felt empty. McDormand’s character was kinda unlikable, and although the performance was great was it worthy of a 3rd acting Oscar win?

    Carol and Nomadland. The latter was just dreadful (except Cinematography).

    Boyhood and Lady Bird

    I have a hard time connecting with coming-of-age films like these

    Ice frost, I agree Moulin Rouge! was atrocious.

    So do I. As a huge fan of musicals, I went into watching that movie very excited. Yet, I found it to be such a big, chaotic mess from start to finish. I still to this day wonder how anyone in the right mind could possibly find that enjoyable (no offense to the people who do).

    Same, I didn’t finish the movie 🥲 It only happened twice in my life.
