- What's your heresy?
Jazz. Pretended to like it at uni to try and pull a pretty girl, couldn’t maintain the pretence.
My missus loves it as does all of her family. Every so often someone suggests that “I’ll definitely love this tune” and it’s always shite.
Also poetry and theatre. Would rather watch a film.
And sherry. I love nearly all forms of booze, but I’ve never had a sherry I like, even after having tried the ‘good stuff’. Tramp’s piss.Posted 2 years ago
This one’s a bit niche but it’s STW so I’m allowed to be niche. The film “Akira” is shit. Won’t deny that it’s influential but there’s a reason most people that rave about it, saw it when it was new.

“Errr……I don’t like football either”
“GIT OOOT! ……..and dinnae come back!”
Never have a problem with that, on account of even the most devout scottish football fan is totally aware that scottish football is shite and happens in the rain. I could probably be more into football if I was Spanish.Posted 2 years agoP-JayMember

I’m working my way through it, 18 months in and I’m about halfway.
It’s not for me.
I admire your determination!
If it’s not working now, it’s not going to get much better for you, it does lift in tempo now and again (slow pace is usually the thing that puts people off who don’t like it) but for the most part it drags along at it’s own pace.
Still, compared to the spin off ‘better call saul’ it’s a Michael Bay filmPosted 2 years agoSaxonRiderSubscriber

For me, it’s not about pace; it’s about a completely unbelievable moral transformation in such a short space of time (and the fact that the cancer narrative ceases to matter).
Unless Walter White had shown signs of psychopathy before, there is no way he could have dissolved someone in acid without a serious personal breakdown. Too much cognitive dissonance.
So yeah, I find ‘Breaking Bad’ just bad.Posted 2 years agotoby1Member
Democracy – draw the line of average intelligence and half the voters fall below it. You also need to have a good choice in the first place.
Children – for so many reasons.
Tea – is just dirty water.
Fish – why do people eat aliens?
Vaping – looks like robot porn!
I’m sure there are others.Posted 2 years agoP-JayMember

I will avoid any film that has award laurels on the cover on principle, they’re usually boring and pretentious.
I think Super Hero films are juvenile and overly formulaic.
Guess you haven’t found much to watch in the last 5 years then?
It’s been a slog at times.Posted 2 years ago

everyone said it was about a mild mannered teacher who transforms into a murderous drug dealer. Sounded interesting. Then you discover that he has murdered his first drug dealer and blackmailed his way into meth production BY THE END OF THE PILOT EPISODE. And you go, wait, there’s another 60 hours of this? To find out how many more people he kills, now that the moral and character arc is basically complete?Posted 2 years agoNicoMember
Encouraging moronic, overly dramatic and selfish behaviour in the real world since at least the original Big Brother.
See also: celebrity culture generally and being famous for being famous due to something stupid you did or your family being so wealthy you never need learn from your mistakes.
Not really heresy though, is it.
Nor is not liking whisky.
Questioning Help for Heroes, now that is heresy.Posted 2 years agorichmtbSubscriber
Lord of the Rings – the books.
Christ almighty it does go on. Tom **** Bombadil and singing dwarves and holy christ how long is the Council of flipping Elrond.
I read it, just so I had read it, but i wouldn’t say i enjoyed it.
No problem with the films though largely as they skipped a lot of that shite
Do enjoy re-reading HHGTTG though!Posted 2 years agomattsccmMember
Loath telly especially reality and competition stuff. Eg dancing singing crap and anything popular. Most telly watchers are thick! :lol:so if they like it it must be crap. Obviously cycling on telly is good as are American fly on the walls about chaps with chainsaws.Posted 2 years ago
Also loath baggy shorts, baseball caps and arse showing jeans on blokes. Poncy coffee with a name other than black or white, mobile phones and (anti)social media.
