Let's hope it'll be a misunderstood classic in the future.

Of all movies that I've seen in the IMDb Top 250, this is only one where I gave it a seven. I thought the characters were dull. And it didn't have enough wit and substance to make it a decent film on its own right.

Seriously, how come horror films like that are an exception? It's overrated and not that terrifying. Plus, the acting was poor and not even done in a deliciously hammy way, either. And the plot twist was just absurd.

Keep in mind that the some of the low ratings mostly reflect on the Arabian Knight version with Matthew Broderick and Jonathan Winters. This is one of the saddest examples of studio interference gone horribly wrong. It could have been a masterpiece and a marvel in animation. Instead, it became a Disney knockoff.

Richard Williams' intended version is not fully restored and released officially just yet (hopefully, it will be in the future, as it's better late than never). But for now, there's a fan edit called The Recobbled Cut created by Garrett Gilchrist, which can be seen on YouTube.

I can understand why some people wouldn't like this movie, mostly due to the graphic and disturbing nature, and the animals literally being killed on-screen (most especially the turtle scene). But I thought the movie delivered an unique experience that made it worth watching. Unlike Irreversible, at least this movie had some values, despite the actual animal deaths.

It does have a promising premise. But what really killed it for me was the subplot involving a little kid with telekinesis powers, which came right out of nowhere without any real build-up or development to it. There's also some plot holes.

It is unpredictable. But what really hindered the film were the unclearly defined characters and the disappointing ending.

This movie is too nihilistic, unpleasant, and pretentious, with scenes like a man getting his head bashed repeatedly with a fire extinguisher and a woman getting brutally raped for 9 minutes.

I really didn't like the casting of Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and Willem Defoe. The writing was just so corny and cringe-worthy that it reaches George Lucas territory. And the chemistry between Maguire and Dunst was poor.

Statistics on movie ratings don't always mean anything. I used to use these two sites on what movies I should see or shouldn't. But as I watched more and more movies, I shouldn't always rely on what either of them say. Now, I would go watch the movie myself and see whether I agree with them or not.

Here's how I generally list movies here:

*The ones I rated with a score of 9-10 are for those that are rated below 75 at either site.
*The ones I rated with a score of 8 are for those that are rated below 65 at either site.
*The ones I rated with a score of 7 that have a rating below 55 at either site are NOT listed here. They would usually go to my list of guilty pleasures. But for movies that are rated 85% at Rotten Tomatoes, I would still NOT list them here.
*The ones I rated with a score of 6 are for those that are rated above 80 at either site.
*The ones I rated with a score of 5 are for those that are rated above 70 at either site.
*The ones I rated with a score of 4 or below are for those that are rated above 60 at either site.

NOTE: NOT every movie I rated that I disagree is on here, but just the ones that I saw recently and the first the comes to mind.
