Wes Anderson is definitely an acquired taste.

Yup, I could only watch about 30 mins of the last resident evil flick the other night. I did like a few of his movies though.

That's Paul WS Anderson.

And before anyone says it, it's not the same guy who did There Will Be Blood.

This is exactly how I feel about Tarantino and his movies.

After Django, I don't think I need say that Tarantino is an acquired taste too.

It's more about how much his style annoys me than how much his movies bore me. They do bore me, but it's his style that I really can't stand.

My best friend is a big Tarantino fan, so I do get some enjoyment out of taking shots at his movies all the time. Have to find some entertainment out of it

I always feel like he's somehow condescending me when I watch his movies. It just feels like hipster tripe at this point. Moonrise Kingdom will be the last Wes Anderson movie I see. Everything about his movies, from the story to that vintagey/retro aesthetic annoys me. Pass.

I didn't even see MK. The only film of his I moderately enjoyed was Fantastic Mr Fox and that was mostly due to the puppet work, the voices and Roal Dahl story.
Judging from some posts, I guess maybe the unpopular opinion is to like him

Well to put it in perspective, I loved MK (saw it twice), but I get Anderson as an "acquired taste." I saw Rushmore and Tenenbaums and didn't "get" either of them. I just shrugged and moved on, barely remembering either of them. I liked Mr. Fox, though.

I like the Kill Bill movies better than anything else by Tarantino.

I don't "get" Pulp Fiction at all.

Pulp fiction, while good, has always been my least favorite of his.

I really like Hot Shots Part Deux. I think Charlie Sheen is a great underrated comedic actor. I also enjoy his work in the scary movie films.

"Loved you in Wallstreet!"

That movie is worthwhile for that moment alone.

For me it's Darren Aronofsky's movies. They bore the living crap outta me. I can't even finish them. I've tried to watch 3 different ones and with each film I wasn't able to make it more than 30 minutes into it before I shut them off to go do something more interesting.....like cleaning the grout in my bathroom.

I was very happy when he got off the Wolverine movie project. I think it'd been Ang Lee's Hulk all over again. Some director's sensibilities just don't work with the genre.

And Terrence Malick is another one who bores me to death, though I don't think with him that's unpopular at all.

Yeah. Not my thing either. I find it odd how everyone talks like a bewildered senior citizen who just swallowed a gulp of a hot beverage.

Quite possibly the best way I've ever seen his films described.

You know, I've never seen a Wes Anderson film. Typically if they can't get me in by the premise or an interesting trailer then I'm not going to waste my time watching your movie.

I kind of feel the same about Aronofsky, though I really haven't seen many of his movies. I've watched a tiny bit of the Wrestler, but I can't sit through more than that, and I HATE Black Swan with a passion. Those are the only two movies of his I've had experience with, though.

I actually like Malick. I think Thin Red Line is great, and I really like Tree of Life. A big part of that is the visuals, which are just unbelievable. However, I absolutely 100% understand why his movies aren't for everyone.

I actually managed to sit through the entirety of The Thin Red Line when I saw it in theaters with my dad back in the 90's. We both agreed afterward that it was as if National Geographic had hired a philosophy professor to make a WWII film. Then we went and saw Saving Private Ryan again for the umpteenth time to recuperate.
