Star Wars, not really good but man do folks really love it.  I'm sSeriously, the dialogue is weak, the acting is wooden, and the plot is simplistic, intentionally so. 

The Big Lebowski, pretty good but man folks really love it.

2001, snooze fest.  Really only have half a movie, the picture part but lacking much else and soooooo long.

Various Fasts and Furiouses.

Watched my very first one on the weekend (7 I believe).  I get that cars going fast is fun, but it was really underwhelming just from a pure action movie perspective.  Lots of things felt clunky and jarring that could have been faster and more intense (so my complaint isn't that it's mindless action - it's that the mindless action isn't active enough in a lot of places).

I get the fast and furious movies, I just don't like them.  They're basically mediocre super hero movies where the super power is mostly driving cars fast but also indestructibility and super strength.

Oh, I get the *idea* of them.  I just don't gt the love for the actual implementation, which frankly I feel could be so much fasterer and furiouser than what I saw was.  Other than the jumping between skyscrapers, it was hardly furious at all.

Inglourious Basterds - I usually enjoy Tarantino movies, but to me this one seemed to be just a case of, "because they're Nazi's we can do whatever we want" and I just didn't care.

The Walking dead

This show is a chore to watch for me. Some people are just crazy over it, like its the best drama in years or something.

Totally on board with you here.  I thought it was boring except the first scene with Christopher Waltz in the Farm House and I generally like Tarantino but not Basterds.
