To be totally pissed off with DH for being mean about Inside Out.

I am sitting here stewing, almost in tears and I know I am probably BU and irrational but he has really annoyed me.
We both like Pixar generally so we rented Inside Out to watch with the kids this evening.After I had put the kids to bed (my turn) I went in to his man cave (spare bedroom) to talk about the movie. He thought it was the worst one they had ever done at which I expressed surprise and said most people thought it was good. He said he had read loads of reviews saying it was really bad and Pixar were going downhill. He said it as if I was stupid to like the movie. I said I had read different reviews and he gave me a look like he didn't believe me.
I have just checked reviews online and cant find a single bad one! He has made that up to back up his wrong opinion! I know if I call him on this he will say something sarky about him always being wrong. Its totally stupid and I am probably completely pre menstrual but I feel like I cant talk to him now without having a row! I am now sitting in the kitchen with wine and feeling like I am stressing over a tiny trivial thing. Which I am, probably.

He has to be right, and be backed up with being right, even if he has to make up the bit about being backed up.

Fuck him. I bloody loved and cried my eyes out you know when.

Yabu, and completely ridiculous, are you old enough to drink wine?

DixieNormas Sat 30-Jan-16 21:25:13

I love it, dp doesn't really get the love! I think it's the vacant nothing going on in the dad's head that put him off! grin

Why on earth are you upset about it though, he is being daft

CremeBrulee Sat 30-Jan-16 21:27:25

It's a children's movie - why are you in years about it? Seems like rather an overreaction.

You don't have to like the same movies.just because he doesn't like it, you can still love it!

PennyHasNoSurname Sat 30-Jan-16 21:27:28

You are allowed to have differing opinions om stuff OP.and him not liking something you do isnt a slight against you

no73 Sat 30-Jan-16 21:27:55

this has got to be a joke.....its a film....why does he need to like every film you like. Its not life or death its a frickin film. You are clearly not old enough to drink wine!

Get a grip grin

It's a great film and I don't think YABU. It's emotional to watch and (for me anyway) it feels quite personal watching it and thinking back to your own childhood. I felt genuinely moved by it and wouldn't have liked someone mocking me. And I'm also guessing it's his condescending tone that's upset you, it's one thing to disagree on a film but another to act like the other person is completely stupid.

I didn't get what was such a big deal when I saw it. I'd read so many excellent reviews hailing it as one of the top films of the year, and so many people told me I would break my heart crying...

Meh. I wouldn't watch it again, and while Cars is definitely Pixar's worst, I certainly don't rate it. I just don't get it, what does everybody love about it? It had some fun ideas, but most of the plot was exceedingly dull.

TheMouseThatRoared Sat 30-Jan-16 21:31:14

Aww op, yabu. Have more wine

JellyMouldJnr Sat 30-Jan-16 21:31:41

Do you feel like he is always dismissing your views OP? As an isolated incident this seems like an overreaction so I'm wondering if its part of a pattern.
(BTW, I enjoyed the film, and as a psychologist was poised to hate it).

HeyYouGetOffMyCloud Sat 30-Jan-16 21:31:55

Oh grow up Op.

JellyMouldJnr Sat 30-Jan-16 21:32:47

have to agree that it is one of the weaker Pixar films though. I've just watched monsters university and that's better IMO.

MaccaPaccaismyNemesis Sat 30-Jan-16 21:34:05

I've seen better films, Pixar are riding on the coat tails of their other films and are pushing their luck with Inside Out. Cars 2 is utter bollocks!

StrumpersPlunkett Sat 30-Jan-16 21:34:47

I really really didn't like the film.
There were brief moments of genius and I would have loved it as a Pixar short

That said.
He didn't need to say you are stupid to have liked it.

couchparsnip Sat 30-Jan-16 21:36:13

It is the tone that pissed me off. And the blatant lying to back up his point. I am basically BU I know. He doesnt have to like the same movies as me but to act like
I am stupid for liking something annoys me. He does it often. Imagine Comic Book guy from the simpsons. Thats him today.

VashtaNerada Sat 30-Jan-16 21:36:18

Do people seriously think this is about whether the film is good or not? Seriously? I think it's more about the way couples talk to each other. DH and I have very different taste in some things but we always disagree amicably.

There's more to it than this film, isn't there?

DH and I watched it, the other night - DS1 didn't want to know because of the subject matter and DS2 lost interest quite quickly - not really his thing. It was a beautiful film and we both enjoyed it. Had DH not liked it, though, I'd have not taken it personally, unless I was already feeling pissed off and despondent about other things in our relationship, in which case I can see how disagreeing about a mere film could end in an argument.

I thought it was crap. DP and I took my 13 year old nephew, who gets - ahem - vocal when he enjoys a film, and he sat in near silence through the whole thing. DP wasn't keen either.

Cleorapter Sat 30-Jan-16 21:38:03

I think this is more than just about the movie, tip of the iceberg perhaps?

I liked Inside Out, alot.

Highsteaks Sat 30-Jan-16 21:38:13

Almost in tears?!!!

My DH often says that films I like are crap, and vice versa tbh, we just have differing opinions. Occasionally, I think he just purposely hates films that are almost universally praised, I remember him going on and on about how shit Inception was, but......meh.

There must be more to this surely?

fluffywol Sat 30-Jan-16 21:39:08

But your DP should have allowed you your own opinion about it. Even though you apparently didn't do the same for you confused

fluffywol Sat 30-Jan-16 21:39:58

For him that should have said.
