Is there a reason you think this? Dont like the setting? Genre? Cast? Story? Or just have a random hate against it? Or just don't like it cause it won best drama?

If it is the latter, youll be fine, cause It wont win Best picture at the Oscars.

To me it just felt like another bland period piece. McAvoy and Knightley have absolutely no chemistry in what's supposed to be a gripping love story. And compared to many other movies, I felt like it shouldn't have been nominated for best anything.

My general opinion is that the beginning was great, end was good-decent, middle was long/boring.

Like, McAvoy and Keira were both good, the film was shot beautifully, but the storyline was... eh. Average at best.

If we're talking about the Oscars, then I tend to agree, although There Will Be Blood has just as good of a chance imo. Sweeney Todd might have an outside chance, but I personally doubt it.

Eh I actually really liked Atonement because I was actually enthralled in the movie and although it lagged a bit in the middle, it generally worked. I was also a little disappointed in Keira Knightley's performance, but I thought McAvoy was excellent.

I hate Tim Burton and all of his stupid ass goth films. Honestly, he's probably my least favorite director besides Michael Bay.
