9 Critically Acclaimed Movies Everyone Dislike Now

The Blind Side (2009)

"My dad couldn't hold back during the scene where the Tuohy couple discusses their 'charity case,' calling it 'fake and stupid.' My mom thought he was cynical, but I agreed. We hadn't heard 'white savior' yet, but it was bothering us."

Song of the South (1946)

"Despite winning two Oscars and having an iconic Disney song, 'Song of the South' has been scrubbed by Disney. Its controversial content has led to its near-total disappearance."

Captain Phillips (2013)

"Real-life Captain Phillips ignored warnings to avoid pirates, leading to the crisis. The crew was upset that the movie portrayed him as a hero when the situation was his fault."

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

"The biopic is mostly fictional, a fact overlooked by critics. My review: 'The wig designer deserves an Oscar. The screenwriter should go to prison.'"

Forrest Gump (1994)

"Some call 'Forrest Gump' boomer fanfiction. Despite winning Best Picture, it's at 71% on Rotten Tomatoes, with many recent reviews criticizing its political messaging and sappiness."

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)

"Initially celebrated as 'Star Wars is back!' but in hindsight, it doesn't hold up well at all."

Blue Is the Warmest Colour (2013)

"Critically acclaimed as a queer movie, but the director made it a nightmare for the leads. The explicit scenes feel like porn, offering a hyper-sexualized view rather than celebrating a lesbian love story."

Crash (2004)

"Critics mocked a scene where a man who sexually molested a woman later saves her, implying his actions made things right. This controversial message was widely criticized."

Shakespeare in Love (1998)

"It's a fine, enjoyable movie with good performances. However, its win over 'Saving Private Ryan' at the Oscars seemed ridiculous to me. This was when I realized the Oscars can be more about popularity than merit."
