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.

The late 80s era of Gambit/Rogue/Longshot/Dazzler/Forge era of X-Men. I thought that was the most weak/pitiful lineup I've ever seen, and I absolutely hated it. X-Factor (which was the 5 original X-men) should have wiped the floor with them within minutes, other than Storm, Wolverine and Rogue only because of her strength.

To follow that, I've never liked any of those characters by themselves either, so anytime someone talks fondly of those characters or that era, I get very frustrated.

On the opposite side, there were a lot of 80s sci-fi shows that I loved growing up but they all got cancelled right away and many tend to put them down when they come up. Shows like Manimal, Automan, Misfits of Science. Might depend on how old you were when they were on.
