Today I wanted to create a post of some of my own unpopular opinions! I’m a bit of a special snowflake and don’t seem to like popular things that others are mad over… please don’t unfollow me.
Also, can we please note that I’ve become a witty special snowflake in this post – appreciate my headings!!!
Harry Potter and the what now?
First up, the most controversial and shocking. I couldn’t give a toss about Harry Potter!! I never read the books as a kid, to my recollection my mum never bought me or offered to buy me the books, so I didn’t even think about them. I liked to read Lemony Snicket & Patrick Ness as a child.
Now that’s not to say I’ve never seen the HP films, I think I’ve seen 4 of them? I even went to see The Chamber of Secrets at the cinema twice because I liked it that much! However, I started on movies like Old Boy, Citizen Kane, and The Shining early on in my life so something like Harry Potter just stopped being of any interest.
Another film series I don’t really care for is Marvel. Don’t get me wrong, I watched the first 2 Thor movies (mainly because Hemsworth is… dreamy) but I never liked Iron Man, had no interest in Captain America and only like the early Hulk film because it was Ed Norton. Over the years I’ve become less and less interested in keeping up with the Marvel Universe. My boyfriend’s family enjoy the movies and I’ve had to endure Guardians of the Galaxy but I think that’s the last Marvel movie I’ve watched.
My problem with the franchise is that it’s just sooooo cheesy and cringey! The forced humour is tragic, and no amount of beautiful muscly men are going to make me put myself through that.
Brooklyn 99? More like Brooklyn No No
I really hate corny American TV shows. I totally get why Brooklyn 99 did so well, with its diverse cast and episodes that tackle on-topic issues but I can’t get past how American it is. I don’t mean that to cause offence, but there is something so different about UK and US humour, I find so many of the American TV shows really force humour and have annoying larger than life personalities that just get on my nerves.
I’ve been forced into watching many a Brooklyn 99 episode at my boyfriend’s house, and hey, at least it’s better than The Big Bang Theory, or How I Met Your Mother, but I’d really rather be watching something else. Please, anything but this!
I don’t get the whole Hamilton thing? Like yeah, it’s a different, unique way of telling history (kind-of… Jesus Christ Super Star is still winning that) but what I don’t understand is why people went absolutely bananas for it.
I’ve listened to a few of the songs but they didn’t grab me in the slightest. Enjoy what you wanna enjoy, but it’s not for me.
OK, are people still here? Do I still have friends? These are just my personal opinions on some very popular things at the moment that I just can’t get on-board with. No offence was meant to have been caused, you do you ladies & gents.
What are some of your unpopular opinions? Do you share any of my ones featured in this post?
