I've never read the books. I'll just say that first before I go on. And judging by the feedback this movie got, it doesn't do them much justice. Me and my friend went to see this in theatres and, to be brutally honest, we loved it. *dodges incoming pieces of rotten fruit thrown by angry fans of the books* I still do! Yeah, it's flawed and it changed the story WAY too much, but there's something about it that I like. I personally think it's because the word "freak" is in the title and I love anything weird and bizarre.
Before you ask, yes I have seen the original cartoon. Me and my family watch it every Christmas Eve and we LOVE it! Oddly enough, the live action film never bothered me. Maybe because I absolutely love Jim Carrey and I thought the role of the Grinch suited him. That, and the Faith Hill song. I personally don't mind it and I always enjoy watching it whenever it's on.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
I know I'm going to get shunned for this, but... *checks for the angry fans* IsawthisonebeforeIsawtheoriginal! *dodges the rotten fruit again* I agree that the original is better (WAY better), but I think that the remake handled some elements really well, and I thought Jackie Earl Haley did a pretty good job as Freddy. Flawed? Yes! Enjoyable? Yes! (for me at least...)
My dad, brother and I watched this on New Years (the start of 2012. We did that on purpose.) and... yeah, it's very far-fetched. However, the acting is decent enough and the visuals are really good. It's clunky and flawed, but I had a lot of fun watching it.
This is one of those childhood movies that you want to hate, but you just can't for some reason. Maybe because you've implanted the thought in your mind that it was awesome and now that thought won't go away. This is definitely one of my top guilty pleasures on this list, and for good reason: it's stupid but enjoyably stupid.
Independence Day (1996)
Two reasons why I watched this: Will Smith (of course) and the Nostalgia Critic review of it. Everytime it's on TV, I still watch it just so I can comment on some of its weirdness (and like I said earlier about Vampire's Assistant, I like anything weird). And just like 2012, I believe this was just meant to be a popcorn movie.
Seed of Chucky (2004)
You ever had that friend who started off with one personality that you liked when you met them, but as time progressed, the said friend's personality began to change and eventually he/she became someone who annoys you to no end, and yet you still stick with that person just because you don't want to abandon them and/or lose them as a friend? That's this movie. I don't know how, I don't know why, but I enjoy this flick. Don't judge me!
Planet of the Apes (2001)
*dodges more rotten fruit* Is it wrong to say I enjoyed this movie? I do, I really do. Yes, it's very, very, VERY flawed, but for what it is, I think it's pretty good. Again, DON'T JUDGE ME!
The Day After Tomorrow (2004)
Out of all the movies on this list, this is the film that I've watched the most. Much like 2012, it's far-fetched and it can be a tad bit ridiculous at times, but you don't really care. The visuals, the way the characters interact with one another and the subtle humour is what makes the movie good. It's just a survival film, and an entertaining one at that.
The original is one of my favourite movies, so I was curious to see what they did in the remake. I watched it one night when it was on TV and... well... it actually wasn't that bad. The acting was pretty good and whoever played Micheal as a kid did a good job. It's obviously not as good as the original (Rob, adding more nudity and blood doesn't make a movie more scary!), but I liked it. One of the complaints I have is how they wrote Laurie's character. Could she BE any more of a damsal in distress?! And stop crying for one minute!
Happily N'Ever After (2007)
To me, this movie is underrated. My brother and I watched it when it was on DVD and we loved it. We still love it today. Sure, the CGI isn't that spectacular and the plot is pretty predictable, but what really drives it is the humour and the way it makes fun of itself as a fairytale. Also, it's fair to point out that the voice acting was pretty good. I'd say it's worth at least one viewing.
