Hi gang,

I was thinking about those situations when you like something that everyone else hates, or even more bizarre when everyone loves somehing you can't stand.

I guess the example for myself would be "Indianna Jones and the Last Crusade". I watched a review of this film where they gave it an A+. I have always despised this film, replacing a fantastic series with screwball comedy antics that Adam Sandler would be embarrassed by.

I think it hurt more because I found Raiders life changing as a young boy so my disaapoinment was extreme. In a lot of ways it helped me lower expectations. I think for most casual fans, they like the film, but I hated it with a passion.


do you guys have anything like this? Something that is universally loved and you feel like Cassandra shouting all alone about how bad it is.

Well first off it's Temple of Doom that sucks, not Crusade. ;\-\)


Comicbook wise I simply don't get the love affair with Barry Windsor-Smith. When I read Conan the Barbarian, all I ever think is, "When does Buscema come on board? Enough with these hair-hats he has everybody wearing."

I'd say Don McGregor as well but I don't think he quite fits the bill as unlike Smith he is not universally loved; he has some (wise) detractors.
