Wow quoted 4 times. I'm flattered.

Seriously though all legitimate complaints have already been addressed since well, 2014. The rest is just hating for the sake of it. It's obvious because no other "bad" movie has gotten this much attention.

You underestimate how much the Internet still continues to sh*t on Spider-Man 3, despite it coming out a decade ago. (I'm not saying that movie doesn't deserve it.)

On that line of thought, TASM2 bashing still continues, especially now being compared to Homecoming.

Ghostbusters Answer The Call is an ok movie that gets too much hate for stupid reasons, mostly angry fanboys and yes misogyny might be a part of it as well.

TFA might not be a bad movie but it's a huge disappointment and easily worse than the hated prequels. It may have higher highs and not have lower lows than the prequels but it's so bland, boring, disappointing that it's easily my least favorite episode.


The internet can be such a hive mentality and if an opinion becomes popular to share then everyone thinks the same even if the large majority have no real experience with it. Example: Everyone is a mirage TMNT fan and was a reader since the beginning

I take bland over bad any day, thank you.

Maybe. I've seen some criticism for those Spider-man movies. I've seen more for TFA.

Hating on stuff is so stupid. It makes you come off obnoxious and hard to take seriously in other things.

You don't see people really-liking stuff for the sake of it. It'd be weird (and funny). There might be an odd few but it's not a norm like hating. Why are naysayers the more vocal group?

I've never had the desire to bash or hate something. I just don't think anything deserves that level of hostility or the effort it takes to do so. It's just movies/TV. Stick to what you like.

if everyone thought alike,the world would be a rather boring place.
It's perfectly Ok to dislike things. it's also perfectly ok to constantly dislike things. Just don't do it 24/7 and you'll be fine.

start 'hating' on stuff. you'll find it freeing.

The reviewer detailed out things what he didn't like pretty nicely.

The movie could have been better, sure; but I do enjoy the amazing visuals.

Hating is a borderline obsession, which is neither healthy, nor logical.

No.
There is major difference between being offensively bad and just bland.

As for TFA - I liked it. Well, some parts of it, at least. It does not have enough character to stand on its own, but it miles better than prequels, by virtue of not having whiny Aniken (sic?).

There is difference between liking something very much, being indifferent and actively hating.

And what Venus has to do with it? It's not like anyone asked for her creation.

That's been disproved. With science.

as well as common sense. don't plants use the misogyny excuse anyway, andrew? ;o)

what is it about this one particular G-D movie that causes everyone to go on the offensive if someone doesn't like it? Very odd similarities in the way people like to defend it too. they almost NEVER actually say what they like about the damned thing.

Sadly we live in a world where people will attack for not having the same opinion

So add that to a group that supposedly wants peace and any form of negativity is increased ten fold. Then of course there are those that uses such titles as "love and peace" as a cover as they do the attacking. It's a horrible cycle.

Some of the humans, yes, but such generalizations borders on stupid infantile nihilism.

Stupid infantile nihilism is a refined taste, though.
