The Notebook and a lot of the movies suggested in this thread already.

Just thought of another. Mandy Moore is in it. She is dying of cancer. Takes place in September? Stupid movie, forgot the title.

I can't stand the movie Midsommar.

For the last year, all I've heard was how amazing it was and how it's the best horror movie anyone has seen in 25 years. I don't see anything great about it, but this is just my opinion.

Birdbox, and The Notebook.
For some reason I rarely watch hyped movies, I didn't watch all Harry Potter movies, Pirate of the Caribbean, LOTR, Star Wars, Hunger Games, Divergent, and few others. I'm willing to give them a chance sometime.
But there are some movies that I've never watched, yet had slightly negative feelings towards.
  • High School Musical; never understood the hype.
  • Never Say Never; it's still beyond me how some classmates watched that over 3 times in the theater.
  • The Twilight Saga; at some point it was popular. Hated it since the very beginning without even watching it. A glimpse on that cringe-worthy glitter sparkling scene was more than enough.
  • Marvel Movies; couldn't get into most of them. Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse is a masterpiece though! Might give Deadpool a go since I only watched half of it (it was inappropriate so mom switched it off LOL).
Also, I have mixed feelings about Mulan's live-adaption. No Mushu, no Li Shang? Hope it turned out good. Super excited nevertheless, she's one of my favorite princesses.

Star Wars. My husband love these films. As he watches my favorite movie and TV shows with me, I also join him when he wants to watch Star Wars. Maybe the reason I don't like these films is that I'm not a big fan of fantastic movies. But I do my best in order not to fall asleep while watching them :)

Dear John - Most boring "romantic" film ever. There's more romance between John and his dad than the girl he's dating. It's one of the most boring films I've ever watched and it turned me off romantic films even more if that was even possible.

50 Shades of Grey - Useless. Should've never been made. Plot sucks. Just watch porn. There's also a contender recently that somehow everyone started watching for the hype—it's called 365 Days. I've never seen it but the plot description alone already sounds like straight up glorified abuse to me.

Fast and Furious movies - I just find them boring. I'd rather watch Shrek or play Need for Speed lol.

Any other Die Hard movie apart from the first one with Alan Rickman - Yippie Ki Yay, MF...

Bridge to Terabithia. I will forever hate that movie for what it did to me. 😤 There was another movie I think I hated almost as much, but I don't remember it right now. Probably because I'm so angry remembering Bridge to Terabithia. 😤

Edit: I remember now, it was the Netflix adaptation to Death Note. 😤 Who really liked that movie anyway though? =/

Back to my rant about the Jar Jar Abrams Star Trek...my cousin and mom watched it again recently, and it made me cringe when Kirk and Bones are listening to Spock make his case about the Kobiashi Maru, and Kirk's asks "Who's that?" and Bones says, "I don't know, but I like him." I mean did Abrams every watch the classic TV shows or ANY of the film adaptations of them???
Bones does not like Spock. Bones continually calls him a green blooded alien. They have continual spats about the specific topic of emotion vs logic, which is a fundamental aspect of being a balanced human being, and they thus provide balance to Kirk's leadership ability. Yeah there's conflict later on, but it's not anything in particular, and is just so lazily done, over all.
Then, in the next scene Bones provides Kirk with help in a way that's highly unethical,and I'm pretty sure is very much against starfleet regulation, something I don't think classic ST Bones would do, and classic ST Kirk would not even need that kind of assistance. He would likely be capable of providing a good speech to convince the higher ups to bring him on this mission, or do at least the bare minimum to make his participation on the crew, at least feel in some way, earned. Classic Kirk was an asset to star fleet, because he was a strategic thinker, that didn't just like to win, and pursue that preference like a 5 year old kid who knocks the monopoly board off the table when he goes bankrupt. He strategizes a way to win, which is so much more satisfying to see.

But that's movies, these days. Don't earn anything by following ethical behavior and following regulation, kids. If you don't get want you want, just go after it anyway, and hope your friends are unethical enough to break all the rules so that you can have everything you want without ever earning it!

I know I'm a monster but No Country for Old Men. I couldn't sit through it all, it was so painfully slow. I can watch 2001 at the drop of a hat, but I couldn't get past how boring so many scenes were.

Silver Linings Playbook

I read the book first, and the author did a very good job of showing the main character's mental illness. The movie was a superficial romantic comedy, IMO.

Every single Coen brothers film I've seen with the exception of Fargo which was alright. I just always get a feeling of pure contempt and hate that they have for every one of their characters and it makes their movies SO unbearable for me to watch - as though every scene is just them insulting the characters.

I was grumpy all throughout La la land. Too much colors, too much references, too much exaggerated sniveling facial expressions. I've mellowed since then and now I catch myself singing this one very frequently.

There are people who liked this movie?😯
I don't know. I thought maybe there were. I really tried to like it. The books are so good. They changed way too much and the plot and characterization was just piss poor.
