    I really hate This Is Us AKA the cheesiest, most maudlin show on tv. Mandy Moore is average looking and a very unimpressive actress. That woman who plays Kate is as big as a house. Holy smokes!! I never cared for Milo either even when he was on Heroes. He just seems like a Stallone wannabe.

    Not very controversial, I guess....but The Warriors. It's a cult classic. The premise and whole nostalgia around it is great. I think of The Warriors and think 'man, all the costumes are great. the baseball furies? awesome.' The idea of a group needing to get from A to B has a whole Judgement Night vibe...it could be this crazy good thriller.

    The movie sucks so incredibly hard.

    i've never seen it because i've always been afraid of having a negative reaction to it despite its high regard in the movie world.

    I saw Happytime Murders last week and absolutely loved it!!!! Now this shouldn't be a controversial opinion, but for some reason critics and audiences both hated it
    I thought it was a really good spoof of the 80's "private eye in L.A." noir movies, and the puppet world is very well thought out and funny! Also, it has the best on-screen sex shop ever!

    some movies are better seeing later streamed than first run in the theater. I found alien the covent was better after seeing reviews and expositions i guess let other people do the heavy lifting.

    I started to watch La La Land a while back and was so irritated by the opening musical performance I switched it off after 5 minutes

    i had never seen it until a couple years ago when my wife showed it to me. it's her sister's favorite movie (which is unendingly hilarious to me) and it's a lot of wacky fun. the coen brothers always make films that are well done, it just comes down to a matter of taste whether or not you like it.

    I was bored to fuck by Boogie Nights, it just seemed to go on and on and on. I don’t even remember the plot at all except it was something to do with porn and they got mixed up in something else. I checked the running time and it was 2hrs 36 ? Why??? I’m sure a lot of the rave reviews were to do with Heather Graham’s minge.

    going back to La La Land, Damian Chazelle should consider himself fucking lucky his love letter to Hollywood didn’t come out a year later

    Cal was really the good guy in Titanic. He offered Rose financial stability and put up with her brattiness. He did yell at her and flipped the table, ordered her food without asking and was possessive. But this movie is set in 1912 and he was a man of his time. Jack was just a bum and Rose was a dumb 17 year old who fell for "the bad boy." Rose winds up having a happy life and Cal shoots himself after losing his fortune, but only because the script has to make it turn out like that, given we are supposed to believe that Jack is the hero and Cal the villain.

    Some good points.

    Watching it now for the first time in 20 years. I don't remember stealing a lifeboat, just picking up a random kid so he could get in a lifeboat.

    Yeah, rewatching it now (in segments). Cal actually was a bastard. I didn't remember a lot of the movie.

    Channing Tatum is the Emilio Estevez of this generation.

    Whether this is positive or negative is up to you.

    i would say he's more versatile, and has a better sense of humor about himself.

    Sure, I'll go with that. In my head, I can see them doing each others roles (including tap-dancing in Hail Caesar! for Estevez and "I'll make ya famous"​ for Tate in Young Guns)

    Dazed and Confused and especially Can't Hardly Wait weren't that good.

    SPECTRE was awesome, as good as Casino Royale and Skyfall.

    can't hardly wait is totally underrated. and i'm not just saying that because it's spoken in the directors' follow-up, josie & the pussycats (which is also phenomenal)

    I hated that movie. The thing with the letter? FFS, was that a rejected storyline from Saved by the Bell? The clichéd characters, dumb teen melodrama, sucked.

    Hell yes it is. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks it's one of Kubrick's very best.

    4. Not funny, not even a little bit.
    5. So she finds the letter and suddenly they have a budding romance, even though they hardly know each other and are going off to different school where they will meet other people.
    6. A letter? A letter makes her fall for him?
    7. The police would have been called 30 minutes into this high school party.

    Whilst this might not sound controversial to some, Animated films (Drawing, CG and Stop motion) are LEGITIMATE ART FORMS AND LEGITIMATE FILMS IN THEIR OWN RIGHT! Just because most are aimed at children (with varying degrees of quantity) doesn't mean they should all be ignored for simply being animated.

    The amount of people in my life who have shot down animated films to me is staggering, and one of them was my fucking art teacher!
