"Poorly rated" films that you just like.
You know, the films that most people claim to hate.
Just as an interesting counterpoint to the other thread.
I like Moulin Rouge.
I have a soft spot for Titanic – the schmaltz just makes it more watchable. 😀
I love Dumb & Dumber.
And The Blair Witch Project isn’t bad either, certainly far more interesting than the likes of Hostel or Saw.
Be honest – what other films generally considered rubbish do you really like?Posted 4 years agopeterfileMember
Ah, missed that thread.
Nah, to be fair, it’s two different things. I’ve enjoyed quite a lot of things that are well made but received poor reviews from critics and/or joe public. Definitely not bad movies, but was just surprised when I checked the ratings after I’d watched it to see it had been slated. Quite a lot of British independent movies seem to suffer on IMDB for for example. Presumably because the international element don’t “get it”?Posted 4 years agoDezBSubscriber
First time I saw Blair Witch Project was on a dodgy DVD before it was in the cinema over here. Watched it with a girlfriend in a dark room and we crapped ourselves. It was so original and damn scary. All the hype blew it out of proportion so I don’t think people got it really. Tiny budget, so different from anything else. Anyway, it was great. Haven’t watched it aince though.Posted 4 years agofervouredimageMember
Anybody catch Monsters when it was on Film4 recently?
Excellent low budget Brit produced sci-fi.
Yeah, I saw it when it came out. Excellent film made on a minuscule budget with impressive special effects produced using little more than a couple of Apple Macs in the directors bedroom.Posted 4 years agopondoMember
Happy Gilmore is my go-to film when I just want to aim my eyes at something cheery and not think too much. Always cheers me up – “I eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast”.Posted 4 years ago
“You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?”
It’s not Oscar Wilde, but it puts a smile on my fizz. 🙂
