Not Blown Away

When was the last time a movie, a book, or a television show left you cold despite all your friends (and/or all the critics) raving about it? What was it that made you go against the critical consensus?

Usually movies. The Harry Potter, Twilight and Hunger Games series. Transformers – though most people do not like Michael Bay movies anyway. Some classic horror like The Exorcist (though I think it’s because I have known so much about it for years and years and built it up in my head a lot that when I finally saw it, I was like “this is scary”?).

And to be honest I am not blown away by anything Star Wars. I mean, it’s a family drama with some weapons and soldiers set in outer space and alien planets! And Chris Nolan movie – I mean they are good movies and all that but I am not blown away. Ok, Inception was unique and fantastic but the rest, not blowing my mind.

Sue me!
