A quick look at the current IMDB Top 250.......

The Dark Knight 8.9, at number 6. I didn't like it much, and certainly wouldn't watch it again.

.......and at the other extreme.....

Funny Bones 6.5, which is an old favourite of mine about a tragic family of clowns in Blackpool.

Forrest Gump has 8.7 Hate that film.

Urban Legend has 5.3 It's not that bad. Much worse horror films out there.

Disliked 2001 most boring film I found and it wins most sci fi polls

Just never got the love for the Nolan Batman films. Or Shawshank (it's ok, but not that great, and can't be convinced otherwise).

But Three Colours Red at 248? Puh-leese

Agree with the Nolan Batman films - I'd say most of Nolan's films actually. Sitting through the LOTR films was a real struggle too and i've yet to see a film by Michael Haneke that I haven't hated especially Funny Games.

For unpopular, Halloween 4 and 5 I love. Mission to Mars too.

I think Dark Knight Rises is a huge bore .

whereas I think Spiderman 3 is really good ( altho even its director doesn't seem to like it ! )

Revolutionary Road - Won 3 Oscars, I found it well acted, but the film was a depressing borefest.

But like finkly, I also loved Mission to Mars.
Also loved the little known Bruce Cambell film "MoonTrap" which only got 4.8 on IMDB.

Avengers Assemble 8.1 - Will anyone still be watching this film in 10yrs time.

Zero Dark Thirty 7.4 - I knew the plot and the finale was spoiled but i was riveted to the screen by this. As a directorial work its right up there with anything by top US film directors, an absolute masterpiece.

Dislike: Forrest Gump (1994), placed 19th at IMDB Top 250.

Like: None. Two films listed on the IMDB Bottom 100 are the only ones I've seen: Alone in the Dark (2005) and Fat Slags (2004). The two films I loathe with every atom of my being. I haven't seen any other films on that list. Not even Battlefield Earth, Gigli, Cool As Ice, Glitter. My bad. Is there another worst-film list out there I can use?

Edited: I think I misunderstood. I have to look at my own imdb list?

Dislike : 2001: A Space Odyssey (8.3)
Pretentious claptrap which sent me to sleep. Big fan of Sci-fi and films open to interpretation, but this was too dull to consider. Struggled to stay awake.

Like:Springbreakers (5.5)
I completely understand why people hate this. I'm not even sure why I liked it...but it was so entertainingly daft I did not begrudge it and would watch it again.

Other examples:

Dislike : The Hobbit; An Unexpected Journey (8.1 zzzz)
Like : The Room (3.2 Hilarious)

I haven't seen it myself but it was supposed to subvert the whole stupid Spring Break genre but a lot of people didn't get that.

I'll put on the hard hat for these! But all from the IMDB top 50 and 8.5+ but I couldn't bear any of them and were all 3/10 or less.

Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Forrest Gump, American Beauty, Casablanca, Citizen Lane, Memento and Raiders. You can also throw in almost all Disney/Pixar films and any Superhero/Comic/Summer Blockbuster Action Film.

I wasnt sure what 'low rated' equates so, so set it at 6.5/10 or lower and really enjoyed all of these and voted 9:

Charlie
Sphere
Airplane 2
Timeline
Forever Young
Stalag Luft
Running Against Time
Champions

Young Guns has a 6.6 rating but I thought was brilliant.
