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.

We're pretty much the same on Last Crusade and for the same reasons. Raiders was more real than reality for me. Last Crusade was cutesy.

Another movie I don't like that everyone else loves is Fight Club.

Also don't like Big Bang Theory.

Something I love that people don't is the Hobbit Trilogy of movies, which I think was done better than the LOTR trilogy. I also think Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith were both good movies.
