Ah, speaking of Tim Burton movies that I'm absolutely in love with that other people hated - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Actually, the critics weren't too hard on this one - it's got a "Certified Fresh" rating at Rotten Tomatoes. It was mainly the audiences that hated it... just because it was a remake of a movie that was part of a lot of people's childhoods. Some people criticized Johnny Depp's acting, saying that he was too "over the top"... But personally, Depp's take on Willy Wonka is my favorite aspect of the entire movie, and every time I watch it, I always skip to the part where the kids enter the factory and watch it from there, because I don't give a crap about Charlie Bucket or any of the other Ticket winners and their backstories (probably because, much like Wonka himself, I happen to hate children).


The Tim Burton remake follows the book a lot more closely (apart from the sentimental crap about Willy Wonka's family that they added on to the original story), but the original Gene Wilder film is a timeless classic.

I am a huge fan of David Cronenburg's films, and I believe that Crash is criminally underrated. That is easily one of the most ruthlessly honest depictions of addiction I have seen in the world of cinema.

Lars von Trier's Dogville and Manderlay are also fearless films that a lot of audiences really hated, but I have a high appreciation for them.

Waterworld- I am a huge fan of this movie. I saw it in theaters a couple of times and own the bluray. It is easily one of my all time favorite movies.

Labyrinth- I just can't get enough of it and I didn't even grow up with it. Only discovered it a few years ago.

Halloween by Rob Zombie-mostly for the fact I have a huge crush on Daeg Faerch and that its fun to watch.

Artistic films and everything by Lars von Trier
And every other movie I've liked, really.

Seriously? I don't think that movie is really hated that much. You might be confusing it with one of the other Trek movies, but FC is considered one of the best Trek movies. Personally I love it and so do probably alot of other people.

When my friends went with me to watch it at the cinema the day it was released. I was the only one that thought it was great. Nobody else liked it as much as I did.

Well, not everyone seems to hate it, but it's a very love/hate movie as far as people's responses go.
And I LOVED Scott Pilgrim :) It was so fun, colourful, and full of energy. The wonderful visuals, magic-realism-esque scenes, the tying between the theme and plot, it was all wonderful.

yeah, really like it too. don't know a single person in real life who think this movie is great.

btw, the girl from "Waterworld" later was in Napoleon Dynamite, also one of my favorites. And in Pink music video for "Perfect", which i also like. This somehow blows my mind.

Oh, I love it! Especially little geek brunette Naomi Watts. She was adorable in this movie.

I loved Scott Pilgrim too. I actually thought I was going to hate that movie, so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I wound up enjoying it. I didn't think it was a "hated" movie though - I've heard nothing but good things about it.
