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.

From the board's era? Not really. I'm not really a fan of Windsor-Smith, either, but not to the point of annoyance. I couldn't get into The Dark Phoenix story or Wolverine vs the Hellfire Club from the Claremont/Byrne X-Men run.

Going the other way, I like Doug Moench's Fantastic Four and Denny O'Neill's Spider-Man.

For more recent stuff, I couldn't stand Paul Jenkins on Spider-Man and I get aggravated when his work gets praised.
