Movies you love, but everyone else hates.

oh and ‘I killed my mother’ – everybody finds Xavier Dolan very annoying but I love him and I think doing what he did at his age makes him pretty impressive!

@ Z. Bart. Following up The Doom Generation with the rather hateful (but fun) Nowhere certainly suggests so!

Hudson Hawk. I think the humor was a little ahead of its time. The Hawk is due for a rediscovery.

Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2

Yes, I agree, Grey Daisies! I watched this one years ago in high school and it still occurs to me now and then how amazing it was. I have yet to see another movie quite like it. I remember it got me all excited for a Blair Witch 3.

And I still like M. Night’s movies, including Lady in the Water and The Happening, though The Happening’s ending was a bust. And I don’t care what anyone says about his hack twists— love them and always thought they were very natural, interesting, and unforced.

Bewitched. I’m slightly ashamed but I find Nicole Kidman utterly charming.

I’m one of 3 film majors at my school that enjoys Breathless, all the others hate it with a deep undying passion.

Rolph:

It seems disturbing on many levels to see “Salo” and “Freddy Got Fingered” on the same list.

I agree with The Happening. Actually, I’m a fan of Shyamalan’s Lady in the Water, too. And Mean Girls is so great.

Lady In The Water Ari? seriously??!?!?! ;-)

Ok, ‘love’ is a strong word, but movies i enjoy that most others do not include:

8 1/2 Women
Batman and Robin(yeah it sucks, but i still find it entertaining)
The Brown Bunny(outside of this site, i haven’t met one person that likes it other than my old film lecturer)
Castle Freak
Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie
Dracula Dead and Loving It
Hurlyburly
Inserts
Last Days(same as B.B but even she hated this one!!)
New Rose Hotel
Observe and Report
Seed Of Chucky
The Shadow
Tideland
U-Turn

And many John Carpenter films(Vampires, Escape From L.A, In The Mouth Of Madness, Prince Of Darkness)

I completely agree with Z. Bart’s comment to Josh H. There is something very wrong with some of the people in your film school.

Yeah, whenever I talk to the teachers they have crazy similar taste to my own, but the students themselves… lets just say very few have the potential to make a great film.

Also I agree with Ari. While I would never say I love Lady in the Water, I did enjoy it, and I would’t mind watching it again.

I too like ‘Lady In The Water.’ I think the problem people have with it is that they don’t know it’s supposed to be funny. Same with ‘Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes;’ you’ll never believe how many people think that it was meant to be a serious and scary sci-fi/horror movie.

The world is chock full of dumb people ain’t it?

Actually, I realize now that a lot of people love the films I mentioned earlier.
I guess it was just a few of the times someone told me they disliked it or didn’t like it compared to the other films they had seen. But it definitely does not mean they hated it. Hate is such a strong word!

I try to be as open-minded as possible, I hope others try as well.
