Movies People Love Despite Widespread Disapproval (19 PICS)

"I quite liked ‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ upon seeing it in the theater.

I was genuinely shocked to see nearly every review (and Sean Connery’s career) disagree with me resoundingly."

 

"Water world"

 

"I have a huge soft spot for Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves.

Everyone likes to rag on Kevin Costner’s brutal “English accent” and yes, it’s inexcusably bad. But that movie is otherwise a ton of fun. Morgan Freeman with a huge sword! Alan Rickman basically being Hans Gruber as the Sheriff of Nottingham! It’s even pretty violent in terms of the action — they didn’t tone it down for family audiences. And the soundtrack is awesome."

 

"Evolution. One of the funniest movies of my generation."

"The Day After Tomorrow (2004)

6.4 on IMDB and 45% on Rotten Tomatoes…I thought the special effects were brilliant and well ahead of their time. For me it’s one of the best disaster movies of all time."

 

"Godzilla (1998)"

 

"Secret life of Walter Mitty

Defined my life for me."

 

"David Lynch’s ‘Dune’.

Perhaps its just nostalgia from watching it umpteen times as a kid but I absolutely adore the original Dune. Sure it has its flaws, but the atmosphere, sound, and general -weirdness- really brought to life Herbert’s universe I think."

"Iron Man 2

Because of Tony realizing his dad loved him after all (and that he was his greatest gift) and also because I liked Ivan Vanko as a villain."

 

"Little Nicky. I don’t generally like Adam Sandler comedies, but that one is hilarious."

 

"Across the Universe. People are pretty split, they either love it or really really hate it"

 

"Super Mario 1992. It’s just a dark sci-fi movie with Mario references and I loved it as a kid"

"The Village. I thought the acting was good, and I liked the twist."

 

"Alien 3. Everything about it worked for me. Gonna go listen to the soundtrack now."

 

"Pacific Rim. Giant robots fighting giant monsters! What’s not to love?

The sequel was sh#t though."

 

"Kung Pow. My friends walked out of this one in the cinema while I was on the ground trying to not vomit from laughing so hard."

"Wild Wild West. I loved it as a kid but found out only recently that it was a massive flop, I rewatched it and it’s a fun movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously."

 

"Antz.

I prefer it to Bugs Life but appreciate that’s not the common view. Nonetheless I think Antz got screwed by being released so close to Bugs Life, inviting the comparison."

 

"Equilibrium. While the fight style is incredibly cheesy, I think it’s a great movie that’s similar to things like 1984 by George Orwell. Dystopian in a different way. The reviews are super bad, but I like it. Plus, Christian Bale is the main character."

#9 is right, Iron Man 2 is far superior to 3. I am genuinely baffled why people don't like it.

And yes, Equilibrium is a great movie, as was Alien 3.

One more for the list, Cutthroat Island from 1995. It basically caused the collapse of a production company but honestly I enjoy it. Oscar quality movie? God no but very entertaining.

Just watched Pacific Rim again recently. Sometimes you gotta just enjoy a movie for what it is, and movies that solely exist for the action/violence are great, imo, and they don't really make those anymore. Not every movie has to have some sort of 'meaning.'
