You should have seen the shit storm that rained down on me because I posted about not liking the grateful dead, beatles and phish. (I never even thought there would be that many hippies here on a mid- century style focused forum...)



The Beatles saved us from The Folk Scare of the early '60's. For that reason alone we should grovel at their feet.

Yeah, not a big fan of Folk music myself. had I lived back then, I would have been into soul/RB or jazz.

Though, I do LOVE the movie, "a mighty wind"!

I stand corrected, Princess and the Frog was dang good.

It just makes all the other Disney stuff seem even worse!

Why all the hating? What about movies that everybody else can't stand but you LIKE?

Fer instance, I like Pickford/Fairbanks silents, which everybody acts like it's an exquisite form of torture to watch!

For starters, the Star Trek movies. The recent JJ Abrams ones. Using time travel to not have to worry about the established history of the franchise so that it will appeal to kiddies with ADHD? Crap. J.J. Abrams is a hack who is going to go on and ruin Star Wars, too.

And I don't know if anyone else liked them but I sure didn't. I recently watched "Pitch Perfect" and "Cloud Atlas" and was very dissapointed with them both.

"Pitch Perfect" couldn't make up it's mind if it was "Glee", "Hgh School Musical" or "Revenge of the Nerds". It failed as all of them. The musical numbers were OK, but the story was all cliche nonsense.

"Cloud Atlas" was 3 hours of disjointed stories that seemed to have no point and no relation to one another other than they featured the same actors, one of which was a rehashing of "Blade Runner" and another "China Syndrome". I spent 3 hours waiting for all of this to converge and make some sort of sense, but... it never did.

I have to agree on those recent Star Trek movies, The first one was tolerable (barely)
but the last one was so stupid! I mean just ignored established science for mindless action set pieces
that made no sense, only the ADD inflicted can enjoy that crap.

I thought the casting in star trek was damn good....love Chris Pine and the guy who plays spock...the storylines, not so much. There were some good moments in the first one, but when you find yourself preferring even the movies with TNG cast....well, that says a lot.

One movie I want to see in 3D Imax, but am sure I won't like will be "Gravity"...I have been hearing clips from it on the radio and all I get from it is Sandra Bullock whining about being afraid to die...which goes against EVERY thing that astronauts are truly about. Astronauts don't cry in space. They are professionals who work the problem and are very level headed and not prone to emotion.

Maybe Sandra Bullock is just crying because she realizes she is one of those women who have really bad taste in men, and that she only likes bad boys like that guy, "the pizz"....er, I mean Jesse james......

Oh, I just thought of a few more:

Caddyshack.....


and the cannonball run movies....

On paper, and in theory....just based on who are in those movies, I should LOVE them, but I just don't. Same with "Blazing Saddles"........


cammo asks, what about a movie everyone else hates that other love.....well, I would say "ground hog day" with Bill Murray...I absolutely love that movie....yet others are bored with it.
