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.

Yup, Milla Jovovich. And I had a fun time with this one, too. Yes, it's a very flawed film and by no means is it the best paranormal film out there, but one I can shut my brain off and enjoy for what it is.

Kung Pow! is probably the best answer I can give. It was hated by many, MANY people. The Pest is another. Incidentally, The Pest is where I got "Coktoe" from, although in the movie and in it's earlier incarnations on my various online accounts, the spelling was COCKTOE. PSN forced my hand in the removal of the K.....Anyways. Let's Go To Prison, and Semi-Pro are 2 more. All comedies. I can't think of any other movies that would fit the bill.

Glass is not getting good reviews, but I love the film. I love the whole trilogy. I'd been waiting for 19 years for Glass to be made. I wasn't disappointed in the slightest.

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’

Event Horizon which is a cult classic by now.

Sphere with Dustin Hoffman one of my favorites.. no one mentions this movie anywhere at all and the few that do think its fucking stupid.

 

fun fact both movies have some kind of sphere in it :)

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.

The banana boat scene is brutal. My favourite part of the film.

Good film that. Really scared me the first time I saw it (alone in the dark at about 1am).

I reckon most people don't know Glass connects to the other two movies. On its own it is a litle dry, but as a trilogy it actually make sense the way the move was made.

Great movies.

I also enjoyed the Cube trilogy. The 2nd and 3rd movie get a lot of flack, I liked them.

I had a period 2-3 years ago when I binged a lot of horror movies. The Cube was insane, such an original and weird concept. I wasn't a fan of the second one though some of the ideas explored in the movie like the passage of time were really cool.

I think you are right about the average movie-goer.  Critics are well aware that it is a trilogy, but it still got poor reviews.  

Regardless, I love the movie, and I'm glad it finally got made.
