Not trying to spread hate, but every now and then do you ever feel like something is wrong with you for not liking a movie that gets universal love? Most of the time you can tell that it's just a theme or stylistic choice that turned you off. But then there are those movies that you can't understand the love for. And your dislike makes you wonder what's wrong with your movie-watching brain. (By the way, we could follow this up with a 'what movies do you love that nobody else seems to love and why' thread to offset negativity).
For me, it's Unforgiven. I love westerns. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is always in my top three. But that movie didn't seem to be a western. It was something else entirely. There's a scene where Clint has trouble getting up onto his horse. That's less a conceit of western movies and more just a man coping with his mortality. There's not a lot of 'western' to this movie. So not that it's not a good movie, but it's not a good western. It's almost a post-Western movie.
Just saw it on a Rotten Tomatoes top five and made me think about it again.
