The most annoying GoT posts are the ones that state “I’ve never seen it and I don’t care.” Well, you cared enough to screenshot a meme and post it to your FB/IG/whatever **side eye**

My unpopular opinion is that Gone With the Wind is not a great story or movie and Scarlett O’Hara is a terrible person.

llevinso :  Im one of the “who cares” people… thankfully FH is too! LOL

Unpopular opinion: Fight Club is the BEST movie of all time! (FH disagrees on this!)

The social commentary is amazing, its not really about guys fighting eachother at all. Im a Chuck Palahniuk fan though (the author who wrote Fight Club the book which the movie is based on)… I generally think hes super insightful and creative at inventing insane scenarios that make you question routine things in our everyday lives. He’s one of the few fiction authors I read.

Some top quotes from the movie: https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/68729-fight-club

I could never get into Breaking Bad.

I love zombie movies but hated The Walking Dead.

I hate The Handmaiden’s Tale.

But what I hate the most is when something super popular comes out (like this season of GOT) and people who don’t like it have to shit all over it like anyone cares about their opinions. Let people enjoy things.

I’ve never watched GOT so I’m also in the “who cares” camp. I also never got into Breaking Bad (watched the first episode and wasn’t interested), don’t care about Star Wars (I did like the original 3 films, but have no interest in seeing any of the new ones). Oh! And everyone is like “This is Us is so great” but I watched the whole first season and while it was fine, I definitely did not think it was amazing.

nightskyforest :  this is us annoys me now.  i did enjoy the first season, never cried though.  but i’m so over it.  i need to get it off my dvr.

i don’t like reality tv, never watched it, never will.  all those bachelorette shows, big brother, survivor, celebrities at home, and singing competition shows seem scripted and fake just to get ratings.

I hated The Lego Movie. I grew up playing with legos so I was super excited to see the movie, and then I couldn’t even get through it because the main character was so obnoxious. And the theme song was super irritating.

llevinso :  I couldn’t get past the first episode of Handmaid’s Tale. I didn’t get the hype and they got through about half the book in one episode. How do they have multiple seasons?! I absolutely loved the book though. 

I don’t get Star Wars either. The movies I’ve seen are fine, but I don’t feel any desire to watch beyond what my husband begs me to hahaha. 

GOT brings out the worst in people. Either they don’t enjoy it so they have to act like they are cooler than everyone for not watching it OR they posts spoilers within 30 minutes of the episode airing to…what? Prove they make enough money to have HBO and Sunday nights free? My husband’s aunts are the worst at spoilers. No grace period for people who might not have had time to watch it live and no “spoiler alert” at the front of their posts.

Despite my user name… I have seen seasons one and two of GOT and read the first book and half of the second… I just like her name 😂

I do want to get into watching it again, I liked the first two seasons

I hated the book “13 Reasons Why.” I just kept thinking that the girl was the absolute worst person and the whole premise kinda seems like romanticizing suicide ideation. Haven’t seen the show so I can’t compare the two.

I don’t like Harry Potter.

 

Running away now before someone puts my head on a stick.

My husband has taken to watching American Idol. He tries to get me interested, but I’m like, no thanks, I’ll be upstairs in my room being quiet and pretending I don’t exist. Yeah, I’m a total HP fan.

Maybe you just know people who like to post spoilers? I have lots of friends/family that are GOT family and none of them post spoilers. Even on Twitter where I follow a lot more people I didn’t see any spoilers.

I do hate people who post spoilers though.
