    Similar to the Your Unpopular Music Opinions thread, except for anything. Movies, books, TV, what have you.

    Please, just keep it civil and PG. And don’t get political. I’ll start:

    Die Hard isn’t a Christmas movie. It’s an action film that happens to take place on Christmas. Calling Die Hard a Christmas movie is like calling Iron Man 3 a Christmas movie.

    Never understood the hype around Star Wars, I found the whole brand extremely cheesy tbh.

    Jon from ARTV is a better music reviewer than The Needle Drop's Anthony Fantano.

    CinemaSins is not funny, nor is it clever. It tries to pick apart movies, a lot of the time without any logic or any kind of deeper though. They claim to be satire, but it's just shitty film "criticism"

    Games today are suffering from too much money on production and presentation and not enough focus on gameplay, emotion, and originality.

    Yeah that's why I think Dark Souls serie is the best, especially DS 1. their gameplay is better than anything else imo, and the feeling when you finally defeat a boss after 300 tries, OMG! :CUMULUS:

    I'm proud to be one of a few who aren't obsessed with Game of Thrones.

    Just the opposite of what I said in a previous comment, but here it is:

    Real Madrid rocks

    My Game Of Thrones time span was only 5 episodes on season 1. Just 2 or 3 days of it because watching them in a row would be boring since they are 1 hour long.

    Leo Messi is - by a long way - the greatest player to have ever lived. And while a lot of people actually share that opinion, he is still massively underrated

    heavier and harder music needs to make a comeback to the mainstream. Am tired of indie pop and rock everywhere where EDM, trap and pop isn't. It seems like one or the other.

    Try not to roll your eyes at me.

    I agree with that statement, but I think the question is if heavier and harder music has what it takes to go back to the mainstream nowadays and I'm afraid it hasn't just because people seem to prefer music that's easy to sing-along to (with heavier music you can also make easy choruses), I think most of the people only listen to what the radio gives them and are comfortable with that. In order for heavier music to go back to the mainstream, I think people's mentality towards music would need to change and they'd need to be more critical with their taste, looking more to the lyrics of a song to see what it means and make an interpretation, not just looking the lyrics up to know them by heart.

    When I put on Kerrang at work, it lasts no more than 30 minutes before someone turns it off. I believe that less and less people look for any kind of connection with music anymore and just want the same regurgitated songs over and over.

    'Jump' by Van Halen came on earlier and somebody referred to it as "emo" :lol:

    Mike Shinoda thought so too in 2014, had his band made their heaviest record yet, only to produce its first pure pop album three years later.

    Rock just isn't having the best moment right now.

    I agree with this

    I sometimes regret speaking my mind like this tbh. It is probably wrong and close minded. I actually thought about what I said sometimes when I’m taking a shower or doing chores lol. Guess I was ignorant here.

    Spider-Man 2 the GOAT superhero movie.
    Transformers 2007 underrated
    Meteora is high key more pleasing to listen to than Hybrid Theory.
    The Hunting Party is a top 4 LP album
    Return of the Jedi is a trash film
    Hip Hop is better than ever before
    McDonald's is delicious and I'll gladly eat it
    Scary Movie the only comedy to make me laugh
    Grammys are trash.
    Future underrated as a rapper

    *breathes*

    Ok. I'm done.
