Films that I don’t like

Another film post from 2013 that only Vinnie appears to have seen. More unpopular opinions from me about many much-loved films. As always, feel free to disagree.

Having listed numerous films that I do like, in my tour around the World of Cinema, I thought it appropriate to also let you know about the types of film that I never watch, and just don’t like. These choices are unlikely to gain me many friends, but I will stand by them, and try my best to plead the case for the prosecution. No clips with these, as they are generic, not specific.

Comic Book Franchises. I do not refer to the recent trend for filming graphic novels, as seen in ‘Sin City’, and ‘300’. This is an entirely different subject, and I have some time for these efforts. In particular, I am launching my attack at the filming of the heroes of Marvel, and DC comics. The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Superman, Silver Surfer, Spider-Man, Captain America, and of course, Batman.

  1. I’m a fan of Marvel, both the comics and the movies which have thankfully done a good job bringing my childhood comic heroes to life. I thought Black Panther was especially well done. And Peter Jackson did a splendid job bringing LOTR to life, even giving women more expanded roles than they had in the books. The rest of your rant I’m on board with.😁

    1. My main issue with LOTR was the excessive CGI. I found it overwhelmingly artificial. I felt the same way about ‘Avatar’ too, and ‘Titanic’. Cameron does love his CGI.
      Thanks, Kim. Enjoy your superheroes. 🙂
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, FR. The funny thing is that I LOVE superheroes. In the comics, where they belong. 🙂 🙂
      LOTR took CGI to new heights. To me it looked so artificial, I couldn’t stick it.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I’ll say one thing about you, Pete–you aren’t a coward. You boldly say your thoughts even though 90 percent disagree with you. That takes guts.
    As technology, societial morays, and the warp speed of time expands to unrecognizable porportions, I feel more out of sync with the world. A sure sign of old age.

    1. I have spent my life being outspoken, and having strong opinions. Too late to stop now, Cindy.
      Old age is a long way off for you. You are much younger than me, and still have lots to see and do yet. 🙂
      Best wishes, Pete. x
