Today’s daily prompt asks:
When was the last time a movie, a book, or a television show left you cold despite all your friends (and/or all the critics) raving about it? What was it that made you go against the critical consensus?
The most recent one I can think of is the movie ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ incase you didn’t guess by the title of this post. So many people raved about it, and I think it even maybe won some awards (? – I’m not entirely sure about that). But nevertheless, almost everyone said it was great, blah blah blah. I couldn’t agree LESS. < is that even a saying? Anyway, the point is, I didn’t like it. I don’t know what exactly it is about this movie so I can’t explain why but it just didn’t agree with me in my opinion.
One of the biggest reasons I guess is that I’m not a big lover of Jennifer Lawrence as the rest of the world is, but that alone wasn’t enough cause for me to dislike the movie. I just didn’t like the characters, the (extremely predictable) storyline, the progression of the situations; the whole thing just makes me cringe.
If anyone has pro or contra views, please don’t be afraid to voice them.
