A list of films that I like very much, but that are held in disdain by many others. Sometimes I cannot even defend why I like these films; I just do. This is not an exhaustive list, and I invite your contributions!
Movies I Like That Are Hated By Others
Napoleon Dynamite - I love to watch films with goofy, offbeat humor.
The Waterboy - (Or perhaps most goofy Sandler comedies) - Adam Sandler is just so goofy in this film that I love to watch it, even though the story sucks.
Flashdance - Ok, I hated the whole "let's cut off our sleeves and collars" craze after the movie and Jennifer Beals' performance was akin to the cedar plank on my grill, but I still love to watch
Super Troopers - Hated by critics, but loved by me. Those goofy cops just crack me up.
Highly Revered Movies That I Don't Like
Million Dollar Baby - And it's not that I have a problem with the whole merciful killing thing, it's just that the movie devolved from a good fight flick into a depressing movie-of-the-week.
Titanic - UGH. Schlocky, cliched, tragic love story.
Rebel Without A Cause - SNORE, despite the excellent Dean and Mineo performances.
