I hate crooked photography so I couldn't enjoy it.

One or two would have been okay, but in that case the whole collection seems to be a cliche, and the tilt in every image just highlights that.

On the other hand, the URL to a search for Winogrand's images is in fact very interesting even though he was quite known also for tilting his shots fairly often. But he didn't do every single one that way, and only when the technique added to the image.

Agreed. A tilt works when an image is energetic and has movement, or when it already contains interesting angles. Gary Winogrand clearly understand that and uses the effect to enhance images. Simply applying a tilt to boring and static images just highlight the fact that they lack interest.
