I want to make it clear that despite the title, this new series isn’t about trolling anybody. I like to think we’ve matured beyond disliking something just because it’s popular (although I’ll admit I’ve never given the Dave Matthews Band a fair shake). Also, don’t think of this as an attempt to convince you that you shouldn’t like your favorite movie. Rather, this is another way to tackle OTI’s core mission of making you see pop culture in a new way. Even if you don’t agree with me about American Beauty, maybe this will give you a new perspective, or make you consider why something works or doesn’t work.
Consider the comment thread not only an opportunity to discuss American Beauty, but also any secret pop culture opinions you’ve been afraid to share. We will try really hard not to judge.
