Hate is a very strong word and it’s not something I’d often using when it comes to discussing cinema. There are few films that I hate with passion and they’ve all got reasons for it. One needs to have strong reasons to hate a film. it could be the technical aspects, the intention behind the film, writing issues and so on. Excessive sentimentalism is another thing that often irks most viewers and there have been many films that are mercilessly trashed for being kitschy and melodramatic. So with everything said now, let’s take a look at the list of most hated films ever made. What movies do you hate the most.
15. The Matrix Revolutions (2003)
Certainly not among the worst films ever made but ‘Revolutions’ just did not hold up to its prequels. ‘The Matrix’ revolutionized sci-fis in Hollywood and its sequel, while certainly not as clinical as its original, still managed to hold up on some level but ‘Revolutions’ took a massive step down. Even the most staunch fans of the series trashed the film for being extremely weak on story and lacking the punch its prequels so effortlessly managed to deliver. It had numerous plot-holes and the closure wasn’t as convincing as we’d have liked it to be and so there’s no wonder why it didn’t go well with audiences.
14. Crash (2004)
Widely hated for its infamous Oscar triumph over the much deserved romantic classic ‘Brokeback Mountain’, ‘Crash’ has been trashed by cinephiles for being excessively preachy and emotionally shallow. The idea of telling interconnected stories that revolve around the themes of racism and human tragedy seems great on paper but on-screen it certainly comes off as heavy-handed and terribly melodramatic. Sure, it has good intentions but themes of human loss and racism could have been handled in a lot more sensitive and thoughtful manner.
13. The Intouchables (2011)
