    What is something that may be popular, or could be anything that people like and expect you to like it too?

    It can be anything from movies,food, a sport, a Holiday, anything.

    I don't like Football.

    I don't like the movie Pulp Fiction.

    I don't like Harry Potter movies

    I don't like Ice cold coffee.

    I don't like Halloween.

    That's just a few to get it started.

    I don’t like The Office. I’ve got a ton of friends who love the show, but I just can’t get into it.

    Firstly I'll focus on Star Wars.

    I don't like Clone Wars, Rebels and Resistance. Okay, I've never expected to like it. But what I had expected to like was TLJ, but unfortunately I didn't.

    Same here.

    Even though I like Pulp Fiction I have to say most of Tarantino's movie aren't that great as people say.

    I don't like GoT. I tried watching it multiple times, but I just can't get into it.

    Same here.

    I don't like being negative on internet forums. ;) (Oh well, here goes.)

    I don't like modern remakes of old films.

    I don't like modern sequels to old films.

    I've actually never seen it. I may watch it to find out if I do or not.

    I'm with you on Clone Wars. Could never get into it.

    And the same with Tarantino movies. Don't get into them. I've only liked one and it was Reservoir Dogs.

    I've only seen the first season, but have never really desired to see the rest.

    I really can't tell, whether it's the characters, the settings, the way the stories progress or something else... when it's on I gladly watch it, but I don't have the desire to watch it on a regular basis.

    Ok, so you’ve all helped me out a lot.

    I’m don’t particularly like...

    (Same... and that goes for either UK or US versions)

    I’m a heretic and only really like Jackie Brown and The Hateful Eight... the rest I can take or leave, but I REALLY dislike Inglorious Basterds

    Ditto... failed at Episode 3 twice

    Same... but doing this anyway

    Yep... Blade Runner 2049 allowing.

    ...and then there’s
    - artichoke
    - any cheese where mold is an alleged ‘taste feature’
    - cheese flavoured things
    - sterile and characterless white walled modern house interiors
    - soap operas
    - Avatar
    - endless mediocre seasons of shows which happened to have good first seasons
    - olives
    - most horror movies
    - bad coffee
    - my belly... but sadly also going to the gym
    - the cold
    - realising you’ve gone waaay off topic :D

    Non-Movie/Star Wars related:
    • I don't like sports at all. I live in Texas and people are obsessed with Football and Baseball.
    • I don't like going to concerts, or any big event really. It's always jammed packed, hot or humid (or both since I live near the coast) and everything is always overpriced.
    • Kinda related to the one above, but I don't like going to the beach (sand really does get everywhere! (anakin)). Beach houses and the strand are okay, but I can't stand the beach itself.
    Movies and Stuff Like that:
    • The MCU. It's not bad but is way overrated. Prior to Ragnorak and Infinity War, I hadn't seen one in theaters since Guardians 1. I still haven't seen Endgame.
    • I'm beginning to resent streaming (Spotify, Netflix, Hulu etc.). I want to actually own my media (prefer physically), and all these streaming services are slowly taking that away. Now it's happening in the gaming industry too (Google Stadia, Xbox Games Pass). We're basically just perpetually renting licenses to stuff.
    • I hate online multiplayer and multiplayer only games. It's also what ruined Battlefront I and II from EA.
    • Never been a huge comic fan. There's only 3 series I've ever followed (SW Legacy, Kotor, & TotJ), but I don't like waiting "month to month" only to get a small part of the story. Granted, I haven't bought comics in over a decade, so it might be different now.

    Blue People Avatar or Avatar: The Last Airbender?

    DC for the past couple of years or so released Batman comics bi-weekly, but that's changing starting either later this year or next year. I used to spend comics on the weekly, but now I just wait for the volumes to come out. Switching to more indie comics (Saga*, Skyward, etc) might help too.

    For me...I don't like Logan. I think it has the quality it should and is the tone it needs for the story it wanted to tell, but I found it needlessly depressing and at some points...maybe not offensive, but insensitive. Certain scenes triggered me and combining that with an overall depressing story that didn't NEED to be as depressing as it was (Logan's whole epiphany could have been made halfway through the movie, not at the end). So yeah, I never want to see it again.



    *Saga can't really be counted as indie anymore, but it's neither Marvel nor DC so...

    Team sports: They foster tribalism and hostile group mentality. :(

    Black Panther: Really thought I would love this one but didn't. (I probably need to watch it again as "everyone" seem to have watched a different movie from the one I saw, and it is therefore statistically likely that the problem lies with me and not the film) :oops:

    The Clone Wars -- Mortis arc: Why do people love this reductionist drivel? :p

    Qui-Gon Jinn: So incompetent and dumb I actually thought he was a Palpatine agent working to derail the good guys in TPM... :confused:

    Bacon/pork/pepperoni: Pig meat tastes like a puddle-soaked plastic bag with a generous side order of rancid butter. Yuck! :rolleyes:

    Action: *yaaawn*... Boring :cool:

    David Lynch's Dune: Looks pretty sometimes and was obviously expensive, but nonetheless utter Bantha Podo :mad:

    I also don't like the new Battlefront games, sadly.

    A big one for me is eggs- people are always surprised that I can't stand eating them.

    Also, as a midwesterner, I'm pretty contrarian to what people expect- politically (which we won't get into) but also culturally. I hate ranch dressing, country music, fishing, camping, casseroles, etc. + 1 for not liking football, too.
