The Blind Side
Can't believe that Sandra Bullock won an Oscar for that, or that is was nominated for Oscars in the first place. I find the movie so cringey.
Crash was my first thought; it was basically a mediocre awards bait film that won best picture. But I thought Crash was a far better film than Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, which is the one recent best picture nominee that I would call a bad film. On Metacritic, it has the [worst rating of any best picture nominee](http://www.metacritic.com/feature/how-often-does-the-best-film-win-the-best-picture-oscar) since 1994.
The original *The Birth of a Nation* from 1915 fits that description, from one perspective.
It is objectively an important film: groundbreaking in some respects and a huge commercial success. It was the first film shown in the White House.
It is one of the most profoundly racist and harmful films ever made. It directly led to the formation of the second wave KKK and a wave of lynchings. Many of the statues being brought down now date from this era.
boy this thread is turning into "whats a popular movie you hate" again.
The Transformers movies are incredibly well made from a technical standpoint, there's a lot of work and effort that goes into making them. That's about as far as the praise can go but it's worth acknowledging the people who work behind the scenes.
[Crash](http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0375679/) - literally won the best picture Academy Award and is a pretty terrible film.
Didn't get the hype and acclaim around it at all, perhaps the greatest Hustle of all.
