I am not a movie connoisseur or anything close, so you won't get any clever debate from me. And I won't argue anyone's taste. That is not the point of this thread.
I am just curious why others might not like some "Well-liked" movies.
The Breakfast Club
I never bought nor liked any of the performances.
It was too out-of-touch "Hollywood" for me. And I've been the outcast, the cheerleader, the burnout, and the athlete in junior and high schools I attended.
The Big Chill. Great songs, yet I never believed they would have been friends in college, or that "Sarah" would let her husband just sleep with an old friend like that.
The characters just weren't believable for me, no matter how motivating the music.
Sorry, hated Hanks performance, and just did not enjoy the movie or find it "touching" in any way.
The Wizard of Oz
I found Dorothy annoying and just could never get into her or any of the other characters.
It's a Wonderful Life
Hubby loves it and never misses it when he can. I've tried a couple times to make it through to the end but never can.
Not really sure why?
