Unpopular Opinions

    I'm sorry if a thread like this already exists. But anyway, do you have any opinions that you would consider unpopular? Here are some of mine:

    - Floral print is ugly. There are some exceptions, though, but most of it I don't like.
    - Pineapple on pizza is awesome!
    - Old school arcades - y'know, with games like Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Pole Position - are way more fun than places like Disney World. (Though I haven't even been to Disney World, I've heard that it's very overpriced and the lines are super long.)
    - Kick Buttowski was a pretty good show.
    - Disney's Chicken Little wasn't that bad.
    - Song of the South shouldn't be considered racist. It only shows what Southern American life was like back in the 1800's.
    - The Disney Princess movies, while not bad by any means, are kinda overrated. I've always prefered movies like Dumbo, The Jungle Book, Oliver and Company, and The Emperor's New Groove.
    - Speaking of, Oliver and Company needs more love, along with Robin Hood and The Great Mouse Detective.
    - Angry Beavers is a better Nicktoon than Spongebob. Seasons 1 to 3 Spongebob comes pretty darn close, though.
    - Wayside was a good show (but far from the best), and it's definitely not as bad as people say it is. I will say that the books were better, but that dosen't mean the show was bad.
    - Fanboy and ChumChum wasn't the worst show on the entire planet. Even though it's pretty bad (I liked it briefly last year, though, but not anymore), I can think of even worse shows. It's definitely one of the worst Nick shows, though.
    - Despicable Me's Minions aren't spawns of Satan like many people make them out to be. They are pretty overrated, though, and I much prefer Gru and his daughters.
    - Sonic CD, although a good game, isn't quite as great as others say it is. Though I do love both soundtracks and I enjoy the whole time travel mechanic.
    - While I absolutely love Sonic Mania, I wish it would've had more original zones than classic/reimagined ones. I mean, Studiopolis and Press Garden might just be some of the most creative levels in Sonic history. (I especially love how Studiopolis act 2 is basically a giant TV studio, with hanging microphone badniks, spotlight platforms, and cable cord tubes that you turn into electricity and warp through.)

    I absolutely hate the term "white privilege" even if it does exist.
    I prefer dubs to anime. Can't stand the Japanese versions unless I think the dubs sound the same.
    Crash Tag Team Racing was a good game and **** people who disgrace it.
    I honestly never got into Cow and Chicken.
    I absolutely hate those annoying 90's kids that just shove every 2000- onward cartoon aside simply cause "it's not in the 90's."
    The classic series of Thomas and friends had its share of dud episodes.
    I think the Confederate flag looks cool.
    I think black lives matter was a good group but then they ruined their own rep.
    Anybody can be a victim. Skin color and gender does not determine it.
    Parents should not let their kids have cell phones until they're at least 16.
    PC Master race is stupid.
    Frozen is a good movie, but **** the fanbase
    People who whine about duplicate Sesame Street clips need to get a life.
    Autism is not an excuse to not be disciplined.
    People who claim to know everything about owning pets yet have none of their own need to stfu.
    People who smoke cigarettes and enjoy them have no right to tell others not to smoke.
    Smoking weed and smoking cigarettes makes no difference.

    I think Muppets from space is a better muppet film than Muppets Christmas Carol

    Both make a difference. There are a bunch of health issues linked to both of them. Cancer, anyone?

    The latter two seem to be very popular - especially ROBIN HOOD. OLIVER & COMPANY, on the other hand, people don't seem to realize it's supposed to be a modern retelling of OLIVER TWIST.
    Angry Beavers was better than SpongeBob, period.
    I'd make an exception for emergency situations. Case in point: when I was a kid, cellphones were prohibited in schools altogether, so I always had to sneak one with me in case of emergencies . . . and it actually came in handy one day when our bus broken down, and the kids were able to call their parents about it, while the bus driver could call for help.

    Sure, I'll have a slice.

    I'm referencing the smoke itself, not the plants (nicotine and maruijanna).

    Umad bruh?

    That being said, I don't see how that's an unpopular opinion. When I was a kid, it was the reverse: I was the only one who liked Cow and Chicken.

    I like Dunkin' Donuts instead of Starbucks

    I prefer having crushes on older men instead of younger men, though I do have crushes on younger men as well

    I like Disney movies from the 90s and 2000s, though some 80s movies such as Oliver And Company are exceptions

    I like Dunkin', but for the doughnuts, not the coffee.

    I'm the other way around. Their doughnuts are okay, but it's their coffee I love.

    I have another unpopular opinion: I like Toy Story 2 better than the first one. Toy Story 1 will always hold a special place in my heart, though, because it was one of the first movies (if not the first) I ever watched.

    ME TOO! I thought I was the only one who thought that!

    Anyway, my list:
    • I don't care for the Great Muppet Caper all that much. I mean, it's not bad, it's just I prefer the other 2 in the Henson trilogy.
    • I kind of like Star Wars III. I mean, it's still not great, but it gets far more hate than it deserves.
    • Christopher Eccleston isn't all that great as the Doctor.
    • I don't like icecream.
    • I could live without the Pixar film "Coco". Extremely overrated.
    • Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is overrated.
    I probably have more.

    Is BLM an organized group? Now, I know the phrase is used a lot by activists and protesters, and on social media but I see a lot of regular people use the slogan as just an all encompassing "Racism is bad" slogan.

    Agreed! The more underrated movies like OAC, Robin Hood and Great Mouse Detective were always among my favorites. I miss when ToonDisney used to show stuff like that.
    I didn't know that many people disliked it :o. I haven't seen it in a long time but I remember enjoying it when it was running.

    Okay, unpopular opinions:

    • Like Froggy said, The Great Muppet Caper never appealed to me all that much. I really only enjoy a few scenes.
    • I actually really like Elmo in Grouchland. For what it is, it's really charming and does a great job at appealing to both toddlers in a way that's not super grating. Of course, that all depends on how you feel about Elmo. But I love the unique sound of the songs, and aside from Huxley and the giant farting chicken it's really fun. Follow That Bird will always be my favorite Muppet movie though.
    • I find Steve Harvey to be rather annoying. Middle aged moms seem to like him though :smirk:.
    • I enjoy listening to Party In the USA :o. I get that it was way overplayed, but I feel like it's a pretty standard pop song and think the main reason it gets so much hate is just because it's Miley singing it.
    • I really like Baby Bear from Sesame Street, which is apparently a controversial opinion.
    • The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi are my two favorite Star Wars movies
    • The last two seasons of Adventure Time have been really good
    • OJ did it
    • Han shot first
    • The world is actually a giant lemon
    • Hamster wheels are fun, but they get tiring after a while.

    I think so, though I know White Supremacy groups and Trump supporters say it's a hate group.
    • I don't remember the chicken farting in that movie, but otherwise, yeah, EIG isn't really bad at all.
      Isn't it the other way around? Isn't liking Steve Harvey the unpopular opinion? Because everyone I know - except for Mikeala - hates him. They say it's too overtly silly and ridiculous.
      It got so much hate because of Miley's live performance of it when she was pole dancing on an ice cream cart while wearing a skimpy outfit, because that was when she was still considered a positive role model for little girls at the time, as she just came off of Hannan Montana, and hadn't turned into the overly sexualized adult pop star yet.
      I don't see how. Who doesn't like Baby Bear? Honestly.

    Oh yeah, that was weird, especially considering she was still the same age as half of her target audience.
    A fair amount of people on this forum have voiced their disdain over the years, also older fans seem to dislike him.
  17. MikaelaMuppet

    MikaelaMuppet Well-Known Member

    I don't hate Steve Harvey at all.
  18. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    I know. I still remember when that first came on and all the backlash she got for it, I was half-expecting little girls across America to start pole dancing on ice cream carts because they saw Hannah Montana do it. :p

    That's what I said - just about everybody I know, except you, seem to hate him.

    • Sonic CD is a terrible game with bad level design and even worse looking graphics. I already have vision problems and playing the game for too long actually gave me eyestrain.
    • Sonic Adventure isn't as good as everyone thinks it is
    • Sonic and the secret rings and sonic heroes are both good games
    • I cant get into the 3d legend of zelda games
    • johnny test is not that bad of a show. its not good. but i dont think it deserves the hate it gets. besides if green day stole their theme song then the show's gotta have something going for it :p
    • all star is unironically a good song
    • I also do not like Great Muppet Caper
    • Kermit's swamp years doesnt deserve the hate it gets. its a cute movie.
    • Zootopia is overrated. Sing is a better movie.
    • Crash Bandicoot Wrath of Cortex is a good game. But also **** that game because I'm a masochist and decided to play the game from start to finish in one sitting. My sanity has never been th same since.
    • Spyro Shadow Legacy is a flawed but decent game
    • Enter the Dragonfly could have been really good if it wasnt rushed and pushed out unfinished
    • Never got into a lot of older cartoon network shows.
    • Guitar hero is better than rock band
    • Scott pilgrim the movie is better than the books
    • The remake of Halloween is better than the original
    • The remake of Nightmare on Elm Street isnt terrible but Freddy looks like a sphinx cat.

    @Pig's Laundry my issue with BLM is simply this. I'm not calling them a hate group. I understand the message they're trying to pursuade. It is unfortunate there are biased/racist cops out there. However, my issue with them is it feels like they've gone from protesting to rioting (destroying property, harassing other people, etc.).

    @muppetgem this will actually sound weird, but in spite of Toy Story 1 being my favorite (just because I watched that one the most when I was a kid; I always loved Woody's and Buzz's conflict, Sid was always my favorite villan and that movie is what introduced me to Randy Newman's music), I always thought the franchise got better as it progressed; the second movie gave us an even cooler plot with Woody being kidnapped and almost sold off, and the third movie ended with the toys moving on to a new home and Andy going to college.

    I'm reeeaaaaally skeptical on Toy Story 4.... But I'll give it a chance. If I like it, I like it. If I don't, I'll just pretend it never existed, simple as that.
