Movies you like that no one else seems to

What are some movies that you really like that the rest of the world seems to think are terrible? I'm not talking about guilty pleasures or cheese fests that you like for all the wrong reasons, but movies that you actually really like despite consensus opinion being (overall) bad. Here are a few of mine:


- Halloween III: Season of the Witch
- Heat (1986)
- Out of Bounds (1986)
- The Squeeze
- Fatal Beauty
- Caddyshack II
- The First Power
- Another 48 Hrs.
- Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man
- Alien 3
- Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2
- Sahara (2005)
- Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)
- The Brothers Solomon

Halloween III and Alien 3 are awesome.

But not as awesome as Harley Davidson & the Marlboro Man. Rourke + Johnson + Sizemore + Baldwin, etc....goddamn gold.

These would be on my list too. I don't think they're great movies by any stretch, but I liked them.

One movie I love that no one ever seems to talk about is Death Becomes Her. I think it's wickedly funny.

I liked the bolded ones. Cruising IMO is right up there with Friedkin's best.

Agreed 100%.

At Close Range may be the best Penn and Walken performances too, IMO.

Re: Movies you like that no one else seems to

8 Heads in a Duffel Bag
1492: Conquest of Paradise
Brain Donors
The Cable Guy
Cabin Boy
Death to Smoochy
Evolution
Hudson Hawk
Ladybugs
Meet Wally Sparks
The Nude Bomb
Observe and Report (I'm still hoping this finds cult status some day -- one of my favorite movies)
Pistol Whipped (recent Steven Seagal DTV fare -- my favorite film of his. I compare it to JCVD, given he "acts" in this one and it's action-lite)
Repossessed
Shakes the Clown
Super Mario Bros.
The Three Stooges (2012)
Wrongfully Accused

Sequels
Beverly Hills Cop II
Blade: Trinity
Caddyshack II
Friday the 13th sequels
Ghostbusters II
Iron Man 2 & 3 (at least on this forum)
The Matrix Reloaded / Revolutions
Mission: Impossible 2
A Nightmare on Elm Street sequels (Freddy's Dead might even be my favorite of the series... )
Police Academy series (I enjoy all six sequels to some extent)
Quantum of Solace
Spider-Man 3
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li
Taken 2
Transformers: Dark of the Moon (it's the only one out of the series I can re-watch)
Vegas Vacation
Weekend at Bernie's II

Not all of these are my favorites, but I like them. My taste in movies is all over the place, but I'm not usually as dismissive as most people unless the movie is really bad. I like what I like.

I enjoyed North when I saw it in the theaters and couldn't understand why it was met with such universal revision to the point Roger Ebert titled a book after his dislike for the film.

Where were you two PUNISHER WAR ZONE fans back in December 2008 when I needed you? (Of course, I wasn't even here in December 2008, so I must have had the arguments about it after I joined a couple months later.)

Punisher War Zone was actually well received on this board from what I recall. It was the Dredd of 2008.
