Yes, I understand all of the critism of this film. But honestly, when I saw this I swear it was love. Course, I was eight years old at the time, but I saw it recently and I still stand by my first reaction. People complain about the storyline, that it was 'for kids' and my eight year old obsession with it probably supported that fact, but I think no one can deny that it was visually stunning. I mean, with Naboo, the awesome bad ass lightsaber battles, Darth Maul... George Lucas delivered. God, I love star wars.

If Episode I was a kid movie, this was a love story and you know what? They're right! BUT why is that such a bad thing?! I mean, I totally bought the whole Anakin-Padme thing. Now some might argue that I am a female and I am thus, more predisposed to enjoy a romance than the boys but the love story was just a very effective subplot ~ the big thing really is that the Emperor is slowly but surely taking control of the jedi! I just don't understand the hating. I mean I hear, that its such a disappointment, blah blah blah, the original's so much better, blah blah blah, and I'm not going to refute their claim but I think they should give Episode II a break! If George came out with something that was like the original starwars, I think it wouldn't have been a big hit. He adapted it to fit the times! We are a more darker time and I thought that it was exactly the type of starwars that we needed.

Okay, perhaps it is only because it came after, what I though was a disaster of a Potter film (Azkaban) and perhaps I just might have been coming into terms of the fact that there will never been a proper Potter film, but I thought that this was really good. Sure the fact that the dragon practically destroyed Hogwarts, and I disagreed with a lot of the casting choices in this film but really, generally speaking, I think this is much too underrated.

Yes, I think this is one of the best Potter films but a lot of people don't think so. Sure a lot of critics but it made me happy. From a review I read, this is the potter "empire strikes back."

Yes, I liked this film. No, I thought this film was nothing short awesome. I do not understand why people hate it so much. There were so many things that I enjoyed. Sure it's not going to be a block buster, but I can see it as a cult classic. I just don't understand why people thought that this was crap.

Yeah, I liked this movie okay. I thought it was cool. I liked it a lot better than some of the other superhero movies they've come up with. I thought the idea and the portrayal of Xavier school was awesome. So yeah, stfu.

X-Men 2 (2003)
In my opinion this is the best Xmen movie. I didn't like the 3rd one where everyone practically dies, I thought Wolverine Origins left a lot to be desired so yes, this one it is. And I actually like the Xmen okay, so it's not like I'm completely ignorant of all things Xmen. I've read a couple of comic books and Brain Singer was very loyal to the characters and I love what he does with the detail.

So my opinion on this? It's Xceptional. XD

Yeah, I just like this film for some reason. It amused me. I didn't like the second one, I thought the first one was okay, but I thought this one was the best. XD

Speed Racer (2008)
Yeah, I thought this movie was pretty trippy and I liked it. I'm a speed racer fan and I loved what they did with this movie. I love the whole thing with Rex and Speed, don't you just feel the love?

Anyway, go speed racer go!

Yeah, I think this is the least liked of all of the Caribbean movies, but I personally think that people judge too harshly. I thought that this film was really funny, perhaps the funniest of the three of them and it still had that whole, pirate-y feel. Maybe it was just a transition movie but I thought it was a great transition movie. Yo ho!

I almost forgot about this. Yes, I liked the 'worst batman movie ever made.' I thought Poison Ivy was awesome. And with the appearance of Batgirl over there, well finally there was a female figure we gals could relate to. And I thought George was a good choice for the Bat... well granted he's missing a degree of brooding, but he got the rich bachelor type down. It will forever be my favorite movie as a kid.

I loved this film.

I loved everything about it.

I'm a sucker for visuals, kick-ass girls and really cool fight sequences. I think this film is vastly misunderstood. "It doesn't make sense." Well you don't make sense!

Feel my burn.

A list of films that I really liked but for some reason a bunch of other people thought was crap.

So, before I get burned, I'd like to say, that this are just my opinions.

i dont like jennifer's body, the others is ok & x men 1 of my favourite movie.
Posted: 8 years, 4 months ago at Mar 4 19:26
I agree with Episode I, the lightsabre duel is one of the best of all 6 movies.
Posted: 8 years, 4 months ago at Mar 5 16:20
I hate the new Star Wars trilogy, but I agree that the lightsaber duel in the end of the first one is cool. Jar Jar Binks ruined it.

Why are X-men and X2 on this list? People seem to like those two movies.
Posted: 8 years, 4 months ago at Mar 6 14:53
I've heard quite a lot of critics say that they, coupled with a few others, were the worst superhero movies known to man.

And yes Jar jar isn't the best character out there, but still, to condemn an entire film for one Gungan?

Unfair, that is.

Jennifer's Body is great! I don't get why people take it so seriously. Nice list.

The thing I didn't like about Attack of the Clones was that it had so much potential, being the middle movie of the trilogy, but it failed to deliver. It didn't have to set anything up or resolve anything, so Lucas had a lot of storytelling potential, which he generally squandered in cool effects and terrible romantic dialogue writing. It wasn't the fact that the romantic subplot existed, it was the fact that George Lucas cannot write dialogue to save his life. The problem with the prequel trilogy isn't the actors, it's Lucas directing. Empire Strikes Back was directed by Irving Kirshner and Return of the Jedi was directed by Richard Marquand, a large part of the reason that they were so much better than any of the others. And as for Jar-Jar, he's the one who singlehandedly caused the rise of the Empire and the fall of the Old Republic by moving to give Chancellor Palpatine emergency powers in the Galactic Senate, so while he completely fucked everything over, without him there wouldn't be an original trilogy. :P

I loved Half Blood Prince, but I hated POA and GOF.
Posted: 6 years, 4 months ago at Mar 5 13:39
Agree with some of these. Think most people liked X2: X-Men United, though.
Posted: 6 years, 4 months ago at Mar 5 15:21
Your boldness is appreciated, and while I do not personally care for many of these films, I agree with you on Jennifer's Body. I enjoyed the film.

Dead Man's Chest is the best film in the Pirates of the Caribbean series! :) xx
