Why is it Cool to ‘Hate’ Movies? Let’s be Constructive

It’s Thursday night and you just left the movie theater after watching the next summer blockbuster with two good friends. One friend is erratic with excitement and future plot theories, and the other friend expresses their experience as a snooze-fest. Back and forth, each of your friends fights with various objections while they await your opinion. While you may feel neutral about the movie, there’s just something easier about expressing how bad the movie was. Whether or not your points are objective or subjective, you might rarely mention the things done well.
