7 ways to say ‘I dislike it’ in English

Do you like classic movies or songs?

Well, in case if you do, you now know how you can show your liking in seven different ways which I explained in this article- 7 ways to say ‘I like it’.

But if you are on the opposite side, I mean, if you don’t like classic movies or songs, you would often use only one phrase I don’t like it’ or ‘I dislike it’.
