Once in a generation, a movie comes along that is universally hated. HATED. Typically, It is not unusual for there to be multiple ways to critique a film. One side may despise a film for its shallow story and focus on special effects, while the other side says “give in to the spectacle” and “not every movie needs to be the Godfather”. These respective schools of thought rarely over lap. Or agree. On anything.
But occasionally, they do.
Fan4tastic is something to behold. Its impressive at how boring and incoherent it truly is. Anecdotal, of course, but I haven’t seen anyone online or in real life defending anything about it. Even the live action Super Mario Brothers has its proponents, of which I am one, if that tells you anything about the kind of movies I am more than willing to enjoy. That film is a masterpiece, but I’m getting off topic. This movie has no fans, it has no one thinking its an underrated gem, it has no one glad it exists. I’m not saying people who don’t like it are sheep, I’m saying that because NO ONE LIKES IT. It brings no one any happiness, only despair. I wanted to like it so I could be a contrary hipsterian (is that a word?) but I could not. It is impossible. In a world where people like all sorts of horrible things, no one likes this movie.
