Your most Unpopular Media Opinion

There are some people who don't like video games. There are some people who don't get Monty Python. There are some people who hate Firefly.Some call Football "Soccer" and some call Soccer "Football". We all have something that we know that when others here about it, we'll have a debate on our hands for the crime of having an opinion.

The Following will be a Rant over my most Unpopular Media Opinion, my hate for Batman. But please, share your thoughts about your most unpopular opinion in regards to Media.

I think Harry Potter is highly overrated.

I've seen bits and pieces of the movies and a friend of mine has told me some things from the books, but it does nothing for me. Probably also doesn't help that she's a huge Potter fan and is slightly obnoxious about it.

I suppose sitcoms in general. I don't get them.

They're about 30 minutes in most cases, and the jokes aren't that great, especially when there's a laugh track or laughing in the back ground. The characters are typically trope-tastic, the story lines that are used are kinda lame, and everything seems just forced.

They're just kinda lame.

The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption is the best movie of forever.

It's only an unpopular opinion because most people haven't seen it.

:)

Instead of going the obvious "Popular thing is overrated", I am going to say I think Ubisoft is mostly a good company. I mean, they make alot of...weird decisions that arent always good, but I dont think they are evil like EA or Activision, and I like the style of game Ubisoft is known for that is most obvious in games like Assassin's Creed and the Far Cry games they made (3, 4, Primal).

Oh, I haven't gotten to do this in a while! Yah!!!!

Dragon Age 2 was a good game. It had plenty of flaws but I firmly believe that the people who hate it hate it BECAUSE of the name and expectations, not because of the game itself. While I'm not going to quite go Greg "5/5" Tito on the setup, it was a solid game that didn't deserve the mountains of shit people threw at it.

And now for the funner one...

I liked the Mass Effect 3 ending (pre-"fix"; I never even played the game after the supposed fixed ending so I have never even seen what changes were made). Maybe I just have a low tolerance for entertainment or maybe everything happened to fall in line perfectly with how my own story went but I thought that the Mass Effect 3 ending was not only tolerable but good.

Granted, it could have been better but I think that people were expecting "Suicide Mission" level of customization for all the decisions made over the trilogy, which is not what I had expected at all. But yeah, overall, I liked the ending of Mass Effect 3.

I find watching sports on tv (or any other way, really) to be incredibly, mind-numbingly, insufferably boring. Doesn't matter which sport. All of them, so boring to watch.

I think that modern young adult dystopian novels are acceptable at best and awful at worst. Take Red Queen. At one point she describes "It takes me ten seconds to notice the rain. It's falling on me. Washing away my rage."

Sheesh. First of all, the "washing away my rage" thing makes no sense taken literally OR figuratively. Secondly, the entire thing where they have short sentences that try to be poetic way too hard... Most pretentious genre I've ever read.

Also, the societies, that are supposed to be Very Metaphorical, just don't make sense. (See Divergent for a fine example.)

Let see-

I hate Monster Hunter.
Well ok, I did played and gotten far in MH3 but it was a struggle to get there. Foolishly enough I did bought Ultimate 4 on the 3DS but this time, I didn't partake the online feature since PUG was toxic to say the least.
Either way, I just find the game too difficult to enjoyed it and don't give me that stupid ass philosophy "git gud". From what I've seen, the game is more enjoyable when you co-op with 3 other friends you know which I don't have nor will open up myself for it (I never believed in community in gaming).

I'm a Jarco shipper when it come to the cartoon "Star Vs The Force Of Evil"!
So sick to death with the cliche of shipping the main protagonists that starred a boy and a girl! Is it really impossible to have a boy and girl characters that just stayed friends throughout the series? Heck it didn't stop the shippers to ship the two siblering Dipper and Mable from Disney other show "Gravity Falls"! (I'm more into Pacifica and Dipper before you asked.)
I'm simply prefer Marco to be in a relationship with Jackie more than Star. Yes Star is the more wacky and interesting girl character but as an "dream girl", Jackie is an likeable dream girl. She isn't the sterotypical bitchy love interest like it is to Trixie Tang to Timmy Turner in Fairy Odd Parent and Paulina to Danny Fenton in Danny Phantom (or maybe Butch is just bad at writing love interest character?). Another difference to those two is that Marco did hook up with her at the end of season 2!
There is one thing I will say about Star is that if Marco had never met Star, he would had NEVER had the courage to be interacting and asking Jackie on a date in the first place!

I also disliked Batman. The films took themselves too seriously, and at the end of the day it was a story of a rich man stepping outside of the law to tread on the poor. Fuck that guy.

And I'm backing up Tippy as well. ME3 had an awesome ending. I literally have no idea where the whiners were coming from.

For an original one? I thought that Die Another Day was the best of the Bond films. The people who slated it have no idea what a Bond film is supposed to be.

Most unpopular eh? Hmm...Okay. Here's one...

The Empire Strikes Back is the weakest Star Wars OT film.

I think today's games, in general, are absolute rubbish. There are so many things wrong with it that I could go on and on and on about. But I wont. Don't want to derail this thread after all!

Don't like sports. Reality-tv or excessive drama. Crime, Thriller or Scary movies/books.
I find them mostly pointless.

I can't stand most rap, nor today's poppy rambling soliloquial ballads.
Melody, rhythm and tempo is what I look for in music, personally.

I will end this by mentioning that I haven't watched a single episode of Game of Thrones, Spongebob or Rick and Morty.

I don't think Game of Thrones is a good show. Its boring when its not incredibly boring, and it took 7 years for anything interesting, ie zombies vs dragons, to happen. Its bad fantasy, bad porn, bad acting, and bad writing. Everything it offers me I can get better elsewhere.

Also I think Buffy the Vampire Slayer is the worst TV show Joss ever made. Angel was hands down better, Firefly was near perfect, and even Dollhouse was more coherent and interesting.

Interesting opinion. Why so?

I think Futurama is pretty trash. It seriously underutilizes its futuristic setting to make jokes about mostly contemporary issues. Issues that have already been dulldozed into the ground by other shows before it. It still thinks Nixon impersonations are funny. The whole head in a jar shtick is lame and overused. Bender is a limp and toothless character despite supposedly being the "controversial" one of the bunch. And it's humor is shamefully telegraphed. The only good thing about this show is Zoidberg.

The dub of Cowboy Bebop is NOT better than the sub. Dub-Spike tries way too hard to sound cool, while sub-Spike just is cool.

Terminator 1 is better than Terminator 2.

Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly is an unlikable twat.

Fate/Stay looks like a bloated mess that isn't worth getting into.

Half-Life and Portal are ok. Just ok.

Metroid Prime 2 Echoes was the best of the Prime Triology.

Nice one.

I'll hit the ground running here and say that among all those brilliant British comedies, Fawlty Towers is a steaming turd.
It's literally 'idiot tries to do some thing his way. Said thing blows up in his face in front of everyone. Idiot is supposed to be likable'. Its the same shit every episode, and he never learns. Never grows, tries to better relate to anyone or anything. It's garbage, and so is Curb your Enthusiasm for the exact same reasons.

Also everyone's blindly pre-ordering Battlefront 2(2) while I refuse to get involved, so there's that.

And finally the Indiana Jones trilogy isn't perfect. Honestly Sahara (2005) is a better Indiana Jones film than Temple of Doom was.

I don't really know how "unpopular" that is. Monster Hunter has some very intense fans, sure, but it's still an extremely niche title. It's not like you're saying you think The Legend of Zelda is overrated.

OT: Well, currently it's evidently the fact that I think Sonic Forces is a good game. Apparently that's heresy of the highest order.

I liked the psychologist scene in Psycho, and I think the movie would've been worse had it not been included.

What's so unpopular about that?

As for me, I fail to find any appeal in Neon Genesis Evangelion

Revenge of the Sith is the worst Star Wars movie, and I think that The Phantom Menace is actually the best of the prequels.

People have started to leave more than one unpopular opinion per thread, so okay, I'll chip in:

I'm sure there's others I can think of, but they're the ones off the top of my head.

Oh, so we get to ask the hows and whys here? Excellent. I can now grill everyone. ^_^

But as for my opinion here...well, here's the thing. Empire doesn't really have any major flaws in the same way that, say, Phantom or Clones has, and it's arguably a less flawed movie than Jedi. However, I do have the following gripes with the movie:

So, yeah. I don't think Empire is a bad film, and it does take my #4 Star Wars film spot. And as you can tell, a lot of these gripes are subjective, and I do admit that Jedi probably has more flaws. But Jedi also has higher highs than Empire for me, and Empire...there's something about the film that just feels off to me. Very unpopular opinion (hence why I chose it), but I'm afraid all I can be is honest.

I thought it was a quadrilogy? :p

Canadamus Prime:

Ditto.

I've never seen Lost, Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones, but that's not an opinion.
I love reading and prefer my books as actual books, not as .docs or audiologs.

Casual Shinji:

Ayup.

Facebook and Twitter are stupid.

Tumblr is the best blogging site

As I feel strongly about my opinions and popularity is a subjective thing, I have no idea what to actually put down that can't be argued both for and against by different perspectives.

I can't stand The Nightmare Before Christmas.
I hate Anchorman.
Star Trek 2009 is a good Star Trek film.
Colin Baker is the best Doctor.
New Super Mario Bros is the best 2D Mario game.

Casual Shinji:

Nah, Ed and Jet's voice actors are what makes the sub better than the dub.

Superman is a more interesting character than Batman

*cracks knuckles*

Warhammer, both fantasy and 40K but especially the latter, is a miserable waste of its few good ideas.

All that potential and all they can do with it is frantically jerk off the various super-soldiers with Super Special Weapons.

Also, the fluff is garbage written largely (if not entirely) by people who couldn't make it as authors in their own right.

-I think Spider-man 2 is overrated.

-I prefer dubs over subs. I don't mind subtitles, but I'd prefer to not constantly watch the screen all the time.

-Also, shows like Family Guy and Teen Titans go have been running for too long, and I stand by that.

Hawki:
snip

I mean, I know you have that list written down since I've seen you post it before, but notes about Episode V too? How big are these archives of yours?

Anyway, I'm mostly with FalloutJack in this matter, but...

The best MCU film was the first one (note that I haven't seen the two newest ones).

Rush Hour is a good film trilogy if you just blissfully forget all the boring crap from the third (just like I've done).

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable is filler garbage on par with the Garlic Jr saga in DBZ.

WESTWORLD!!

It's not perfect. But it's fucking brilliant. Ok, with Breaking Bad, I hesitated on sharing it first showing...only to see it blossom, so many years later. I sense a genius in this world too. The details matter.

I find Buffy The Vampire slayer to be an incredibly boring, poorly written, and poorly acted show.

There are some moments of brilliance in the dialogue but they're usually incredibly brief and accidental. I suffered through a season and a half of it before giving up and I only gave it that long because everyone kept praising it to high hell so I kept thinking that it must get better.

It's funny because I actually tend to enjoy most Joss Whedon projects. None of them are perfect but they at least tend to be fun and imaginative. I guess it takes a certain caliber of actor to pull of his writing and none of the actors in Buffy could do it.

I've seen a lot of people slag it off, saying it has artificial difficulty and uninteresting environments. Obviously I disagree.

And I don't think disliking Eva is an unpopular opinion. That series is...divisive.
