    A big one for me is A Troll in Central Park. I get that its plot isn't the deepest and there is a lot of padding, but I still like it because Stanley and the children are adorable, and it's actually kind of sad when

    The only truly bad thing about that movie is the left-field ending that was highly unnecessary and essentially makes it hard to take the whole film seriously. Ignore that though and it's enjoyable. Great songs, seriously how can you hate this?

    Two more films I feel are underrated (though not as much as the above) are the two sequels to The Brave Little Toaster. The original movie is amazing too, but it isn't really hated either. The sequels are disliked by many people who liked the first one because they don't have as many emotional or dark moments as it did. However, I appreciate them for a few reasons, one is that they introduced Wittgenstein, the supercomputer who is one of my favorite movie characters, and also they had decent plots even if they weren't as emotional. And they had moments that genuinely felt like they would fit in the first film as well. I'll list a few in the spoiler.

    I can agree that the original movie had more soul put into it, but you can't say the sequels did it no justice at all.

    Any movies you feel similarly about?

    There are a lot of movies I hate that other people love, if that helps.

    But the reverse? I really loved "last samurai" and am always confused when people give me a weird looks about loving it. I know it's dances with wolves, but it's 1000x better than the blue alien dances with wolves (better known as "avatar").

    Oh, I really liked that fourth shrek movie. I think I skipped a few of them and saw the first and the last one, so I wasn't burned out on them? I don't know, but I liked it.

    This is an interesting one. I didn't like it but I didn't hate it either. I can forgive the weirdness since the series didn't really have much defined canon at that point, but on the other side, it would've been "meh" even if it wasn't about Mario IMO. I still have the DVD and I don't mind watching it, but when someone says Super Paper Mario is on its level of bad that's where the line has been crossed, heh.

    I loooooved this as a kid. Gosh, you just send me a trip down nostalgia lane. I had totally forgotten about that movie!

    My pick would be Star Wars Episode III. Some say stories are only as effective as their argumentative skills like rhethorics in a speech, and I think while some arguments in this movie lacked enough meat the ideas that carry it are good and apply a little bit of justification here and there and it almost feels like a masterpiece to me. I also think it's better than all the other movies only rivaled by KOTOR 2 the video game. I think while the original trilogy had classically mainstream themes and lighthearted characters Episode III is the only one that makes me think about the idea of Star Wars's universe. While it all felt like a bunch of imaginative and quirky sci-fi backdrops in the other movies this movie made me think more about the fundamental ideas of the Jedi and the Sith and what parallels they make to reality. I thought Episode I and II were complete flukes but III rocked ass.

    Well actually, those who didn't read the book, I can understand that you didn't like it (though I don't understand why you'd go see it :P).

    Movies other HATE? Hmm...
    I pretty honestly would have to say Shrek the Third. Sure it is my least favorite of all the Shrek films but it is still pretty good to me.
