    All Spiderman films are awful.

    James Bond films are still bad.

    Cameron Diaz hasn't been hot since the Mask.

    Braindead(/Dead Alive if you're American) was good.

    EDIT: And The Frighteners.

    The first Michael Bay Transformers movie is much better than the original animated movie and cartoon series.

    Anchorman is not funny. At all.

    Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is one of the more enjoyable Indiana Jones films after Raiders.

    No, I enjoyed TCC too. It WAS nigh on ridiculous but good fun.

    I really enjoyed the first and third Transformers films. Never saw the second.

    Mystery Men was great.

    The Avengers was pretty meh, but there were a few good characters - Loki, Black Widow, The Hulk.

    The argument I mostly hear about Crystal Skull is how ridiculous it is having aliens in it. Personally, I find the religious aspect of the others much, much more unbelievable. Saying that, Raiders is still my favourite especially because of all the adventuring / tomb exploration. Crystal Skull also has a ton of that so I really enjoyed it, only with alien stuff not ruining it for me. There be my reasoning.

    I think the alien thing is an easy point to pick on because the film could never live up to the expectation. There are equally daft things in the old films, but they don't feature a pensioner as lead protagonist. The film just wasn't very good and the aliens became the stick with which to bash it with.

    Think Toy Story is still the best computer animated film of all time, nearly eighteen years on.

    ... and whilst on the subject of Pixar, even their 'above average' films are great!

    : )

    Yeah I'm not going to try and convince anyone to like it, just thought I'd give my reason for doing so. Fair enough if you disagree, after all we're all in here to do just that. :p

    Edit: Good to see I'm not alone on Anchorman, though.

    Not sure whether this is unpopular or not on here but I know a lot of people who loved The Hangover 2. I didn't. It is crap.

    They are all quite good. Except the last one which was poo!

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Coen Brothers films are largely boring as hell, although The Ladykillers is strangely watchable.
    Christopher Nolan films are great the first time you watch them, but get worse and worse with each subsequent viewing.
    Black Swan wasn't all that.
    Synecdoche New York was most definitely not "2011's craziest comedy", it fucking blew!
    The Matrix sequels are great.

    Must admit, I'm a bit of a Coen brothers fanboy - loved Blood Simple, Miller's Crossing, even the Hudsucker Proxy is highly entertaining, but I've just never got on with Fargo. Hell, Raising Arizona is possibly my favourite American film ever.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    The matrix sequels are fucking terrible. A masterclass in how to ruin a great idea through bad, long, tedious, overblown sequel bollocks.

    I watched the big lebowski a few months back, it's alright, don't get the huge praise it seems to attract.

    Unless you are on drugs, Fear and loathing In Las Vegas isn't particularly good.

    I loved it in my drug addled uni days but I put it on recently after telling the girlfriend it was a great movie. Had to agree with her that it wasn't at all.

    I'd agree, if it wasn't for Bad Taste and Braindead. But then, I was a stoned teenager when I watched those, so maybe my argument isn't as strong as I thought when I started typing this.

    I'm in two minds about the Matrix sequels. All the stuff inside the Matrix is incredible. I love the action, the look, the whole premise of it. What ruins it is the "real world" sequences. Everything in Zion and on those ships plays out like bad TV sci fi. They shouldn't have had Zion in it at all really and I think it takes away from the isolated feeling in the first film (plus they have stupid raves).

    80's action movies were the golden age of cinema, nothing before or since has come close.

    We will get along. I removed the word action though.

    Big trouble little China, the burbs, blade runner, scrooged, scarface, short circuit, mannequin, Beverly hills cop, the shining, goonies, labyrinth, Ghostbusters etc.

    There was just more fun to them and most out before I was born.

    I've just thought you will now probably say you meant things like aliens, Robocop, predator, running man, Rambo, rocky, total recall, star wars.

    @sega the first film was a cool, thoughtful, stylish and influential piece of filmmaking. It's reputation was ruined forever by the sequels. They turned it into a typical blockbuster, taking only the special effects and losing everything else that made it good.

    Yeah I agree they're poor sequels, I just love some of the sequences and there were some great ideas (Agent Smith clone fight, freeway chase, train station trap, night club scene etc). They're spoiled by a bad story and dull/stupid sequences in between. I probably worded that wrong as I don't really want to defend them as good movies, but they do have some ideas and action scenes I really love. Shame.
