    Idk if there’s a thread like this.The title says it all. 

    In the other forums I go,this kind of threads usually become very long after a while lol.
    It could be some opinions that you don’t agree with most people here,or out there.There’s no real definition to “popular opinions”,I suppose it’s just a vibe,rofl.
    Actually it doesn’t necessarily have to be about movies and performances,it could also be something like physical appearances,accents,one’s personality etc.

    Just comment whenever an unpopular opinion occurs to you.

    For example:
    I’m a big fan of Shakespeare in Love. 
    I find Joaquin Phoenix to be incredibly sexy. 
    Lupita Nyong’o was overrated to the highest heavens in 12 YAS.
    The Intouchables(that french film) is ok,but massively overrated
    The Wolf of Wall Street is BY FAR the most overpraised movie of 2013,it was simply annoying to watch.
    Dicaprio is one of the most overrated actors ever,and I seriously don’t understand why would anyone find him attractive. 
    Laura Linney should’ve won best actress for her incredible performance in The Savages.
    Amy Adams was good in Doubt.
    American Hustle is a great film,and it’s better than Silver Linings Playbook.

    Well, everyone has different opinions. Though I do think there’s hardly an Oscar win really everyone agrees on. You’ll always find someone who’s against it. *lol*

    My unpopular opinion:
    I think neither Tilda Swinton nor Frances McDermond did anything special in their winning roles, so I don’t get the love for them.
    (or Cate Blanchett in The Aviator? I don’t even REMEMBER her in that.) 
    Citizen Kane is also not the best american film ever, nor is Vertigo.

    All IMO:

    Vertigo, overrated
    Frances McDormand gave a perfectly adequate borderline supporting performance in Fargo
    Crash and Shakespeare in Love are both amazing movies
    Marisa Tomei gave a tour-de-force comedic performance in My Cousin Vinny
    Sandra Bullock gave a better performance than Cate Blanchett this year
    People don’t talk about it much but Gosford Park is vastly overrated, and did not deserve a screenplay win
    Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t deserving of the win for SLP or even the nomination for AH
    Octavia Spencer deserved her win for The Help
    AND
    I like Anne Hathaway

    I liked that Rocky won best Picture, Swank Deserved both of her Oscars imo, Tom Hanks is should have 3 Oscars, Jackie Brown is Quentin Tarantino’s best film, Natalie Portman was nothing special in Black Swan, Day-Lewis should have 4 Oscars, Berry deserved her Oscar by a mile, Slum Dog Millionaire was one of the best wins of the 00s decade, Leo is a OK actor….

    Benjamin Affleck is the living incarnation of “Tom Grunick” from Broadcast News.

    Danny Boyle, is a dick.

    Jon Stewart, can bite my ass.

    There’s not a single Scorsese film that I really like.

    Marisa Tomei is one of the best Oscar wins since I started really following the Oscars.

    Cate Blanchett deserved an Oscar this year, but not for “The Aviator.”

    Tom Cruise should have won for “Jerry Maguire” and/or “Magnolia.”

    I hate watching Daniel Day Lewis “act.”

    Every thread on here devoted to female actors does not need to devolve into arguments about Meryl Streep’s career.

    “I hate watching Daniel Day Lewis “act.”

    Have you checked out The Last of the Mohicans? Not much ‘acting’ involved there.

    More….I watch television shows nobody else seems to watch around here:

    The White Queen, Vikings.

    Sandra Bullock is an overrated actress.
    American Hustle was a freakin’ awesome film
    I loved Monsters University
    I thought Benedict Cumberbatch deserved a nomination for Star Trek into Darkness

    I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.

    I find Joaquin Phoenix to be incredibly sexy. 

    Who finds him unattractive or worse?

    I think Julia Roberts is a lousy actress. I mildly liked her in Mystic Pizza, My Best Friend’s Wedding, and Notting Hill. The rest of the time, I find her shrill and her smile fake, especially in Erin Brokevich.

    I preffered Crash to Brokeback Mountain. I absolutely hated the Tree of Life. I don’t think Mad Men deserved to win for its first two seasons. I think that the Revenge of the Sith is better than A New Hope. I think ‘Girls’ should be classified as a Drama, because I’ve never laughed, and I get depressed anytime I watch it (I like the show, but only as a drama). I think Batman Begins is the best of the Nolan trilogy (but my favourite Batman film is the overly campy Adam West one). I think Rear Window is the best Hitchcock film. I have others, but I can’t think of them off the top of my head.
