Article: Top 10 Popular Films That I Don’t Like Volume 2

10.Manchester By The Sea

Lee Chandler is a depressed uncle is asked to take care of his teenage nephew after the boy’s father dies. Too be fair with this film it has got a brilliant story and it is well casted in a well-meaning film, but unfortunately this isn’t memorable at all and it doesn’t leave you a lasting impression on you, overall you really wanted to like this film but it hard to connect with.

9.The Favourite

In early 18th century England, the statue quo at the court is upset when a new servant arrives and endears herself to a frail Queen Anne. I have got a massive respect for this film for being different and being ambitious, but for me personally this is too weird for my liking and I find it hard to hold my interest, I really wanted to like this film but it definitely hard to get into it.

8.Phantom Thread

Set in 1950s London, Reynolds Woodcock is a renowned dressmaker whose fastidious life is disrupted by a young, strong – willed woman, Alma, who becomes his muse and lover. Normally I’m a massive drama fan but this one is the weakest, the pacing is off and it is rather uneven and it doesn’t hold your interest and this is a major disappointed film.

7.Tick, Tick…Boom!

On the cusp of his 30th birthday, a promising young theatre composer navigates love, friendship, and the pressures of life as an artist in New York City. Personally I thought the idea is there and it has got a reasonable story, the thing is the musical element isn’t catchy or as memorable and it has got a bland lead, it has got a good cast but unfortunately the characters are hard to like.

6.The Hand Of God

In 1980s Naples, young Fabietto pursues his love for football as family strikes, shaping his uncertain but promising future as a filmmaker. Well this film has got potential and it is a coming-of-age film which I normally like, in some ways I’m hoping this film will be good but it failed to deliver anything and it is such a shame, it try to be too different and it doesn’t gel together and it is too patchy and this is not watchable.

5.Green Book

A working – class Italian – American bouncer becomes the driver of an African – American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South. One of those film which is well – intentioned and the idea is there, it is well – casted but unfortunately Viggo Mortensen role is slightly bland and their chemistry doesn’t really work, so overall this film is slightly disappointing.

4.13th

An in – depth look at the prison system in the United States and how it reveals the nation’s history of racial inequality. Another documentary which has got a sensitive topic which I like and we needed those type of documentary, it is such a shame that this documentary doesn’t offer you something new and it isn’t poignancy and it doesn’t have that lasting impression on you.

3.The Batman

When the Riddler, a sadistic serial killer, begins murdering key political figures in Gotham, Batman is forced to investigate the city’s hidden corruption and question his family’s involvement. Firstly I really wanted to like this film, I like the idea of teenage Batman and the soundtrack is amazing. Too be honest with you it is overlong and it feel rather miscast, it also lacking the psychological element and the villains isn’t as memorable and for me personally it is overhyped.

2.Joker

A mentally troubled stand – up comedian embarks on a downward spiral that leads to the creation of an iconic villain. Brilliant idea so I thought this would be amazing from the villain perspective so it would be interesting, it is one of those film that doesn’t creep under your skin and definitely lacking the psychological element, Joaquin Phoenix doesn’t fitted as the Joker and he not scary enough and the rest of the cast is good, it doesn’t really work and it not as memorable enough.

1.The Father

A man refuses all assistance from his daughter as he ages. As he tries to make sense of his changing circumstances, he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality. Anthony Hopkins really trying his best and I can’t blame the acting whatsoever and this has got potential, the thing is I can’t connect with this film and it hard to get into it as I got a family member who suffer the same thing as the main lead, It doesn’t moved me with this film.

  1. It’s a shame that you didn’t enjoy The Favourite, Green Book, and The Father. They have been some of the films I have enjoyed most in recent years. The Father, in particular, gave a new perspective on a difficult subject and tried to give us some idea of what the father was experiencing – not quite sure who was who, or what exactly was happening.
