There are a lot of reasons to dislike a movie. Perhaps the story doesn’t appeal to you. Maybe the performances fall flat or the visuals are uninteresting. Maybe you resent how a beloved character or franchise was treated.

But all of those reasons have decisions behind them. Whether you agree or not, the filmmakers involved have had a distinct idea with regards to what they want the film to be. That doesn’t mean it’s a GOOD film, but at least it knows what it is.

Something like “The Mountain Between Us” is something altogether different – and much worse.

Sometimes, you want to watch a film that is packed full of nuance. You want to see a film that challenges you, a film that defies simple explanation the sort of film that prompts a minutes-long diatribe in response to the question 'What's it about?'

Other times, you want relative simplicity. You want spectacle. You want good guys and bad guys and clear conflicts between them. You want a film that can be summarized in one sentence.
