Ten Movies You'd Have to Be A Serious Douchebag to Hate

Yesterday, in selecting the Ten Films Overly Judgmental People Will Cut You for Hating I attempted to select films that had very passionate people on both sides — passionate defenders to the left, haters to the right. Basically, divisive movies, though clearly there were some oversights (Magnolia, to name one) and I also underestimated the hatred that some have for The Dark Knight and Inception (films I’d considered for the list, but didn’t think there were enough people on the hate side to support their inclusion. I had no idea.).

Today’s list is something of a counterpoint: These are ten films where there should be no great divide. I mean, every film has a naysayer. Except these, of course. You don’t have to love them, but either you at least like these films, you haven’t seen them, or you’re a douchebag. I’m sorry. That’s just the way it is. You can’t argue it. No one will support your position. I mean: Who could fucking hate any of these films? Really? And if you do, you should probably get your head checked.
