I still need to see it!

The Emperor's New Groove. In fact, they would make a great double feature because of their 'revisionist history' parodies and postmodern references.


Wait. There are people who don't like The Emperor's New Groove? I have never met anyone who doesn't!

Oh man, then I'm really excited for it now, seeing as you're one of the few members on this site whose opinions I follow.

Haha, it seems like we've been misunderstanding each other lately. 8D

I said:

that were also seen in another favourite of mine (and which a lot more Disney fans loved), The Emperor's New Groove.


If it is because I didn't say "and which all Disney fans loved", then yeah, I suppose in this case, there will definitely be a few who wouldn't like The Emperor's New Groove, just like any other movie.

Another recent one is Andrew Stanton's John Carter. I watched it with two of my male friends and they made all these awkward remarks during the screening ("How come the female aliens got no boobs?", etc) and they were kinda ambivalent after we walked out. One even fell asleep during the introductory scenes where Carter was on the run, before he got teleported to Barsoom. But the other friend did love the twist ending where Carter sets up a 'long con' trap to kill his assassin in the crypt. I personally enjoyed the imagination and humour (the dog creature was adorably ugly) that went into it, and I wouldn't mind watching it again - many critics panned it and it tanked at the box office. Which was a shame, for I felt it was underrated.

While I wasn't the biggest fan of this movie, I thought it received more hate than it deserved.

I definitely want to check this movie out at some point, being an Andrew Stanton fan and all.

It's definitely worth seeing if you're a fan of Andrew.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks John Carter deserved more love. I did my part by seeing it in IMAX with two of my friends, I just wished it had made more money seeing I admire the director and the source material (well, okay, I've never read the books, but I plan to embark on them someday).

I'm not sure, but it could just because of my large bias for Andrew Stanton!

John Carter was interesting for me. I didn't *like* it, but I respect Andrew Stanton very much and his work. It wasn't a good movie, but it wasn't earth-shatteringly bad. Unfortunately, I'll probably never see it again. It got the worst possible reaction that a film could ever get from me: meh. It wasn't good enough to be memorable; it wasn't bad enough to be fun. It fell into the category no movie wants to be in: okay. Critics tore it to shreds, though, which I felt was completely unjustified and wrong.

Wow, this topic turned into the John Carter topic!

The Resident Evil Movies. I feel like people take them way too seriously, their just fun movies with hot chicks killing zombies in IMAX 3D, who wouldn't wanna see that? :D

Patch Adams-Why does everybody hate it? Several true stories don't become perfect movies! It's funny, and touching, and RObin Williams did a great job.
Hook-Yes I love Robin William again why do people hate it?
I guess Igor, Home on the Range,and Chicken Little should be on my list.
The Smurfs-Please don't kill me. I thought it was cute.

Cars 2
Cars
Brave
Atlantis: The Lost empire
Meet the Robinsons
The Black Cauldron
J. Edgar
Frankenstein Unbound
Every Bond movie with Roger Moore on it(seriously. WTF?!)
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom-It's my favorite. I have no regrets
Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End
Toy Story 2(Obviously, not widely hated. But usually people's least favorite. Toy Story and TS3 overshadow it a lot.)
No more let life divide what death can join together.

The Star Wars prequels. Well, most people like Revenge of the Sith but hate the other 2.
