Unpopular Movie Opinions

Hey, guys, new threads. More horribly unpopular opinions.

To start us off:

The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo is a horrendous movie.

The King's Speech is just another generic, run of the mill, nothing going on Oscar bait film. Also, none of the performances are worth much.

I already knew this... sadly, I tend to love those.

I haven't seen a poor Geoffrey Rush performance yet. I haven't seen a great many Geoffrey Rush films, but that's another discussion altogether.

I agree.

First of all "the" Dragon Tattoo.

2nd, I don't love it but it is interesting and features 2 great performances.

3rd, the 2nd one ("Played With Fire") is the terrible one.  One of the worst middle chapters in a trilogy ever.  So bad I didn't bother with part 3.

The question is, do you care to even see what Fincher does with it?  Perhaps after seeing a trailer?

Fincher is an interesting filmmaker and I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, but I'm not really sure the source material is even worth bothering with. So, I'm a little wary for right now...

Did you read the book roujin? Even then it isn't the most amazing mystery/thriller ever but there is a ton more going on than they put into the film. There is one aspect completely cut out of the film that has some pretty strong parallels to Se7en and so I imagine Fincher might be drawn to them.

I can understand why someone would watch Transformers 2 (people who like explosions, people who want to switch brain off after work), I can can understand why someone would watch Sex in the City 2 (sad lonely aging women, people dating same) , I can  even understand why someone would watch Avatar the Last Airbender (fans of TV show, Shami fanboys).

But never will I understand how anyone would ever volunteer to watch something like The Kings Speech, everything about that movie screams pretentiousness and Oscar bait.
Iíve lied to men who wear belts. Iíve lied to men who wear suspenders. But Iíd never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Except the fact that it is very witty and thoroughly enjoyable. :)
