    Jonathan - I'm not a fan of this movie either, but the "people only pretend to like [insert popular movie] to look cool" argument gets really old really fast. First, because most anyone you're accusing of having such a mindset would be able to name you plenty of really well-loved movies that they didn't like. Second, because it's arrogant and narcissistic to believe that because you hated a movie everyone else must secretly agree with you but they're too afraid to admit it. That's not a mature thought process.

    A vast majority of those claiming to like the film actually do like it, because they enjoy it and because it connects with them.

    With that said, it's clear that you're only pretending to dislike the film. You secretly love it but claim otherwise so that you can look cool to all your hipster contrarian friends.

    At first I thought this film was pretentious and stupid, but by the end it completely won me over and now I love it. It's one of the only films I've ever seen which made me think about the way I live my life and how I should change it. 8 years 6 months ago
