Tangled (2010)
I was reluctant to watch another Disney take on a folktale, but I ended up really liking it. It was funny and the songs were nice. Plus the part with the lanterns is awesome.

Enchanted (2007)
I was reluctant because it was going to be another princess film except live action. Wrong. It was pretty funny at times, making fun of a lot of the things that make up Disney princess movies. Plus it was full of references to other Disney movies which was cool.

Loverboy (1989)
I wasn't really interested in this because I wasn't really a fan of Patrick Dempsey (I've never watched Grey's Anatomy). But I finally gave in and watched it with my sis and liked it. It's kind of like Deuce Bigalo in the sense that Dempsey starts pimping himself out to lonely housewives.

I'm not really a fan of new horror/scary movies but my friend insisted we watch this on Halloween and I ended up liking it. It's nothing innovative, but it had a good jump/cringe/really-want-to-look-away factor (for me anyways).

I wasn't into watching this because Ashton Kutcher was in it, but my sis made me and I liked seeing him as different character than Kelso.

The Ring (2002)
Again with the scary/creepy/whatever. I really liked it, and it didn't hurt that Scott Speedman was in it.

I didn't watch this because it just didn't look that interesting (and I have no interest in fashion), but I watched it because Anne Hathaway and Stanley Tucci are in it and I liked. PLUS, this began my new love affair with Emily Blunt, who is awesome.

The Others (2001)
I'm not particularly fond of Nicole Kidman, so I was "eh" about seeing this. Far surpassed my expectation.

I'll say this now because it pretty much applies for the next four movies: I had a vendetta against Tom Cruise. I don't know why but I just did not want to watch anything he was in except "The Outsiders." Needless to say, I've grown out of that and am giving Tom a fair chance now. So these 4 movies (War of the Worlds, Minority Report, Mission Impossible, and Vanilla Sky) have become some of my favs.

Wanted (2008)
Same thing: not a big fan of Angelina Jolie. But, big fan of James McAvoy. My McAvoy love won out and I watched and I liked.

I wasn't expecting much but I liked it. And Jay Chou is cute. And Christoph Waltz is funny.

This didn't seem interesting and I'm not a big fan of Jennifer Aniston. But it was heartbreaking! I had to hug my cat for like an hour to feel better.

Not a big Keira Knightley fan, but I really wanted to see this because Cillian Murphy is in it. I liked it and I even liked her a bit.

Fight Club (1999)
I heard people go on and on about it so I didn't want to watch it. Needless to say I broke down and watched it and loved it.

Avatar (2009)
I actually wanted to see this when I first heard about it, but then my bro got on it and talked about it 24/7, and kept bugging me about when I was going to watch it, blah blah blah. So I didn't watch it just because of my brother until about a year later. I really love Sigourney Weaver. And I love Sam Worthington, but that's a different list.

These are some movies that I watched reluctantly but ended up really liking them. The reasons vary of why I was reluctant to see them.

xD A lot of these movies, I feel the same way!

Especially the first few. Enchanted is actually one of my favorite movies now.
Posted: 6 years, 5 months ago at Jul 4 2:24
Me too! I just watched again for the first in a while and remembered why I love it so much. ^_^
Posted: 5 years, 8 months ago at Mar 22 6:34
Tangled, The Others, Wanted, and Avatar would all be on my list as well. As for Tom Cruise, I've watched a lot of his movies over the years but it wasn't until Interview with the Vampire that he first impressed me. The 4 films listed here I like well enough to own on DVD. If you haven't watched Magnolia, you definitely should...not his movie per se, but he's great in it.

Tangled - This is one of the best animated films I've seen for a long time
Posted: 5 years, 8 months ago at Mar 22 7:26
Tep, Tangled was a nice surprise, for sure. And it was nice to see that Pixar doesn't completely control the market on quality American family animation.
Posted: 5 years, 8 months ago at Mar 22 7:27
Oh, and the giraffe is absolutely right about Magnolia- everyone is impressive in that movie, Cruise certainly included.
Posted: 5 years, 8 months ago at Mar 23 2:11
Man, there's loads of people in Magnolia-I'll definitely check it out. Thanks guys ^_^
