So you hated "J. Edgar"?

I thought that movie was okay but due to being made quickly it's got some really embarrassing flaws I can remember. The worst being of course the scenes where DiCaprio and Armie Hammer kiss, and DiCaprio putting on his dead mother's dress. People also really blasted the old-age makeup Hammer had to put on in the old-age scenes. DiCaprio's accent is a bit inconsistent too (especially after he and Hammer kiss, blarggh. "Clahde!!!") The scenes with Naomi Watts don't work very well.
Perversely, the scene I remember most is the discovery of the Lindbergh baby's corpse, because I've seen the real photos (not a recommended thing to look at BTW, although they're old and in black and white they're close up.) Some critic pointed out that the Lindbergh baby is found in the same position as DiCaprio-as-Hoover's dead body.
I suppose I could understand you hating it way more than I could understand you hating Reds. At least it didn't win any of the awards they were hoping for.
