Movies you like that others hate

Forums - Movies Discussion - Movies you like that others hate

Howard the Duck: Pure 80s cheese at its best. Everybody hams it up. Don't take it too seriously, and you might actually enjoy yourself.

Pauly Shore's movies from the 90s (yes, even Bio-Dome): From 1992 to 1996, Shore had a movie every year where he was a major or lead character. I enjoyed all five of them. Especially Encino Man. I just like dumb comedies. Wheeze the ju-uice, buuuudy! Awoooo!

Batman vs. Superman: The extended cut especially makes this a much better superhero flick than people give it credit for. Of course, I've been far less critical of the DCEU than most.

The Last Jedi: Borderline case. The movie was a huge success but has a very, VERY vocal hatedom whose volume and vehemence makes them seem far larger than they are. You can't go anywhere on the internet that mentions Star Wars without someone bitching about how Rian Johnson destroyed their childhoods, and my YouTube recommended videos lists keep getting clogged with 20-minute screeds complaining about a movie in a series of fantasy films about space wizards that use laser swords. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. I''ve watched it like six times already and I fail to see what there is to hate about it. Of course, I'm the guy who unironically enjoyed Howard the Duck and Bio-Dome, so what do I know?

A lot actually but for this thread I'll just say that I really like the DCEU movies. Some of them are more flawed than others sure, but I just can't understand the hate. I had a blast with Batman v Superman. Man of Steel is in my top 5 superhero movies ever. Suicide Squad, while dumb and flawed, kept the spirit of the comic with its dark comedy which I do love. Wonder Woman was alright. I haven't watched Aquaman yet but I have good hopes for it since I really liked his comic.

The movies haven't been as successful as the from Marvel, you'll get no argument from me on that, but I just don't understand the hate these movies get.

The Fourth Kind is another film I hear a lot of "meh" things about, but found myself enjoying.


The one with the lead actress  from the RE movies right? I thought I was the only one who enjoyed that movie. I was so surprised to see the reviews after I watched it. It blew me away when I watched it.

Hmmm.. There's probably like 3 or 4 times this amount but these are the ones that come to mind off the top of my head:

Veritcal Limit
Die Another Day
Matrix: Reloaded (especially the awesome highway scene)
The Blair Witch 2: Book Of Shadows
Rush Hour 2 (enjoy it more than the first funny enough)
American Pie 2
Vegas Vacation (the critics seemed to pan this at least)
Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith (still hate EP1 and pretty much EP2 though)
Suicide Squad

Die Another Day

Great film until the ice palace. Then it falls apart.

Sucker Punch. It's a cool, badass movie. I love the twist at the end, and the chicks are hot to be honest. 



If you can't think for yourself, why are you alive?

Jaws 3D and Jaws: The Revenge. I saw them both as a kid, way before I saw the first two, so perhaps nostalgia plays a part.

Jaws: The Revenge gets too much hate, it was decent. The only dodgey bit is that the shark followed them to the bahamas lol, implying it was smart to know where they went lo.



 

 

batman v superman
spiderman 3
amazing spiderman 2



Off the top of my head

Batman V Superman - I hate Ben Affleck but i thought he played batman well

Star Wars Prequels - I don't know how this could have been any better? It was a time of peace before the empire took over so it was shown that way

The Last Jedi - A few stupid things and side quests but over all story was ok

Hobbit first movie - Most people will say it was slow, but to me it felt better paced that LOTR. I don't know I enjoyed it more. Perhaps LOTR music for me was just too corny.

King Solomons Mines / Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold - The low budget Indiana Jones movies

Bourne Identity (80s one) - Most people hated it cause it was less action. I liked it cause it was more story focused and explained things and investigated things, not just shot, blowout and run

Pretty much most of 80s horror movies lol - i.e. dolly dearest, piranhas, slugs. Terrible plots but i don't know were entertaining to watch lol.

I coudl go on forever, most 70s/80s movies that got scores in the 5s/7s i enjoyed (terrence hill / bud spencer movies, segal movies).

I loved those, as well as Romancing the stone and The jewel of the nile. What happened to the 80's adventure genre! Bring it back.

journey to the center of the earth was great as well, the remake not even that bad.
