Think Twice Before Bonding Over These Red Flag Movies

When you think you know someone, you may find their favorite movie more than a bit off-putting.

Consider re-evaluating your relationship if you get ‘creeper' vibes when your friend mentions their top film.

50 Shades of Grey (2015)

While many people praise this work for its audacious eroticism, just as many detractors find severe issues with the general ‘freak factor' of the main male protagonist, Christian Grey.

Cuties (Mignonnes) (2020)

The issue with Cuties is the intense objectification of pre-teen girls as they enter puberty and the role that social media and media, in general, play in centralizing that issue.

Twilight (2008)

A massive marketing strategy only sometimes leads to a great movie or set of movies, and people were quick to trash this popular pick.

American Psycho (2000)

One movie consumer does appreciate the clear notice to “swipe a hard left” if someone references Bateman or Huey Lewis and the News in their online dating profile.

Battlefield Earth (2000)

Based on Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard's book by the same name, this sci-fi drama was a complete theatrical and commercial disaster, despite its list of major stars like John Travolta and Forest Whitaker.

Dragonball: Evolution (2009)

One movie connoisseur couldn't fathom why anyone would like this movie, saying, “Just…. why? It's not even a good stand-alone movie, let alone any sort of Dragonball movie.”
