Article: Top 10 Popular Films That I Don’t Like Volume 1

10.Back To The Future (1985 – 1990)

Marty McFly, a 17 years old high school student, is accidentally sent thirty years into the past in a time – traveling DeLorean invented by his close friend, the eccentric scientist Doc Brown and travel around the future. Too be honest with you I simply can’t get into these three film at all as I wasn’t growing up watching them, I do like the story but I don’t found it thrilling or fun.

9.Icarus

When Bryan sets out to uncover the truth about doping in sports, a chance meeting with a Russian scientist transforms his story from a personal experiment into a geopolitical thriller. Unfortunately this documentary have some pacing problems as it is overlong, so overall this doesn’t leave you a lasting impression on you as this is not memorable enough, despite it is a good subject matter it doesn’t hold your interest.

8.Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

A mother personally challenges the local authorities to solve her daughter’s murder when they fail to catch the culprit. I can’t fault the acting whatsoever as they really trying their hardest but for me personally I don’t find this powerful or poignancy, it is well – casted but the ending has an anticlimactic and you feeling rather disappointed, it is one of those film which has got potential but it failed to deliver anything.

7.Mrs Doubtfire

After a bitter divorce, an actor disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. I’m normally a massive Robin Williams fan as some of his films can be really good, this is definitely one of his weakest film as it feel rather forced and not laugh out load funny, it is a well – meaning film but for me personally it doesn’t stand out as much if you compared this with some of his other films.

6.The Wrestler

A faded professional wrestler must retire, but finds his quest for a new life outside the ring a dispiriting struggle. On paper this could be amazing and it could be life affirming and being relatable, after the film I wasn’t moved and I not hardly in tears whatsoever as you can’t relate to these characters and they are hard to like, it also a really disappointing film that you can’t connect with.

5.2001: A Space Odyssey

The Monoliths push humanity to reach for the stars: after their discovery in Africa generations ago, the mysterious objects lead mankind on an awesome journey to Jupiter. Normally I’m really into science fiction film so I thought this would be a really good film, but I’m completely wrong as it is too overlong and it losing your interest and that is a real shame. I really wanted to like this a bit more and I thought the acting is rather bland and it never recover.

4.The Dissident

When Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi disappears in Istanbul, his fiancée, and dissidents around the world piece together the clues to a murder and expose a global cover up. Definitely one of the most disappointed documentary that could been exciting and thought provoking, it certainly not as it doesn’t gel together and it doesn’t flow and try to be too overcomplicated, it should be compelling and unpredictable but it is too predictable.

3.Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

A faded television actor and his stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the final years of Hollywood’s Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles. To be fair with this film it has got an amazing cast and the intentioned is there, it doesn’t really work and it have some pacing problems but overall it doesn’t really entertained you, it is one of those film that doesn’t hold your interest and you really wanted this film to work but it failed to deliver anything.

2.Matilda

A girl gifted with a keen intellect and psychic powers uses both to deal with her crude, distant family and free her kindly teacher from their sadistic headmistress. With Roald Dahl book that turn into a film this got to be the weakest, it doesn’t have that charmed and you couldn’t really care with these characters, too be honest with you I didn’t really growing up with this film as it not memorable enough despite the idea is there but it nothing special.

1.Close Encounters Of The Third Kind

Roy Neary, an Indiana electric lineman, finds his quiet and ordinary daily life turned upside down after a close encounter with a UFO, spurring him to an obsessed cross – country quest for answers as a momentous event approaches. Firstly Steven Spielberg is a fantastic director with consistent films, unfortunately this is the only film I don’t enjoy as much as it is weird and surreal and that is a real shame, this has got a good story but for me personally it is too weird for my liking.

  1. It’s a shame you don’t like Back to the Future Trilogy, Three Billboards, 2001, and Close Encounters as these are all films that I have enjoyed over the years and they all bear repeated watching. All I can say is, give them another go!
