prieštarauti; priešgyniauti, priešingauti
Explanation:
prieštarauti; priešgyniauti, priešingauti

Baik priestarauti! Man tai nepatinka.

Actually, to appreciate means something different -

(į)vertinti; suprasti (vertę); branginti; pripažinti

but in this sentence I would say

Man tai nepatinka (I don't like it)
