You know people who don't love that movie?

I stumbled upon it about five years ago and thought it was great. It never occured to me there would be numpties out there who would disagree.

Of course now that I think of it, I don't know many people who have even seen it, and the 5.1 rating on IMDB kinda suggests the love was not universal.

People have no taste.

Maverick was AWESOME. The soundtrack is a must buy for country music fans.

I can think of a few:

GREASE 2: I thought it was better than the first.

THUNDERBIRDS: So they're not marionettes. Big deal. Its dumb, but it's fun.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS: THE MOVIE: It had nothing to do to the general storyline, and what was told in the story was retconned in the series...but I'm a huge PR fan and I loved it.

JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS: The soundtrack is fun, though the it's incredibly unbelievable and the plot farfetched.

There are others, but those are in my mind.

That movie is damn near unwatchable. Maybe if your really, really high. Maybe.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. One of my favorites, but just not appreciated by anyone, it seems.

At least, not by anyone I know.

Just about everybody I know who saw it loved it. But the masses, not so much.

I LOVVVVVE that movie. Whenever my friends reference the Oscar-winning version, I say "Ohhhhh, you mean the fake version with Russell Crowe."

Has the best soundtrack, too. Seal, Gerardo, that remake of U2's "Pride" by Civilles & Cole, even Skid Row. Awesome.

I loved that movie, and a lady I know also loved it. But, definitely too quirky for most people. Or, just too awesome!!!

I really dug Willard starring the always creepy Crispin Glover.

And nobody i personally know liked Machete. But to me it had gore, action, DiNiero, Jessica Alba almost naked, and Michelle Rodriguez in pants so low cut and tight they were only held up by her pubic bone. And that's enough for me!

Masters of the Universe or Nixon. Two out of nowhere choices. I like Masters of the Universe when they are on Eternia and everything past the major battle on Earth. Great sets, decent special effects for its time and a decent cast. Good soundtrack too.

Nixon is a tough one mainly due to some of my friends hate Nixon or have no desire to see a 3 and half hour movie made from that damn liberal Oliver Stone or don't want to watch a 3 biopic. I thought the acting was great, the psychology of what made Nixon tick was spot on and even with the spotty conspiracy stuff with Kennedy, the script was tight. Hopkins was bashed for the role, but I thought he was awesome in it.

Muthafuckin SPEED RACER!

Saw it like 6 times in the theaters. It was the first movie I had to literally drag friends to go see and pay their way to see it so I could share the awesomeness with them... and no one 'Got It'. Every single 'In real Life' person I know didn't like it.

It's a damn shame.

SPICE WORLD would be #2. It's extremely quotable.

I hang my head in shame and agree with Cerebus*. Speed Racer is AMAZING. I have to stop what I'm doing and watch the final race whenever I see it's on TV.

Add me to the list. I loved this movie and actually had a VHS copy recorded off the TV for many years. 'Damn you ghost, damn you to hell.'

My addition to the thread is 'Hercules Returns'. I'm not sure how well this one would translate outside of Australia (or even if it were released overseas), but it has me and a few other people rolling on the floor unable to function due to laughing. Most people think it's stupid. I'm yet to find a woman that likes it.

Fuck it, I think I might watch it again tonight.

The Last Starfighter. Everyone else just looks at the dated '80s computer graphics (made on what was then the world's fastest supercomputer, which everyone's laptops nowadays are about ten years more advanced than), and goes, "You watch that?"

But I love it. Especially the music. The film's a lot like TRON, only without the boring parts in the middle.

That's funny...I worked at a Blockbuster for awhile, and whenever someone rented "the fake version with Russell Crowe", I would tell them, "Hey, that's the second best movie EVER named Gladiator." Every single time, the customer would defy logic by asking, "Um...what was the first?" which paved the way for "Ummmm....Gladiator."

I'm glad to see the Speed Racer love on here. Last summer it was on HBO just about every day and if there was nothing else on, I'd stop and watch it. I must have seen the second half of it about 20 times last year.

When I got my Blu-ray player finally, this was the first movie I bought for it.

Jumping on late.

-Love Maverick. Really fun movie and it has a cameo by Uncle Jesse.

-I have heard enough people that liked Speed Racer to check it out, but I'm still not fully convinced.

-Saw Scott Pillgrim the other night and did not like it at all. To me it is like a Michael Bay movie, all style over substance. The style just happens to appeal to geek culture.

Mine:

Superman 3 - This movie inspired the plot of Office Space and has an awesome fight scene between Clark Kent and Superman. Plus RICHARD PRYOR.
