    Yep. It was formulaic almost to a fault but really well made. And Vikander was believable as a human being for a change, showing actual warmth and even almost smiling a few times.

    I thought Sonic the hedgehog was a lot of fun. I’d put that one up there too. Hope we get a sequel with Tails and Jim Carrey back

    Waterworld. It's a good film, but people trash it for some good reasons. But I think the downsides of the films are outweighed by the good parts of the film.

    Saw thread, came to post this but I'm a day late. I really like Prometheus. I thought it was very well made, particularly the first arc.

    I saw 13 Ghosts as an teenager and really liked it, I thought the premise was pretty fresh. Not sure how it will hold up if I watch it now though, it's been 20 years after all.

    My contribution to the thread: Other than Prometheus
    Predators - the 2010 starring Adrien Brody
    Again, I thought the premise was pretty good. I'm actually a little surprised people dislike it.

    I'd say the issue with both of these films is you can tell they had the potential to be more than they were. When someone is simply medicore *cough*Abrams*cough* its often easier to look past its faults but Prometeus was I think exellent in some regards(the look, the soundtrack, several performances) that made its weaknesses in terms of a hokey illogical script *cough*Abrams buddy*cough* stand out a lot more.

    The Treat Williams Substitute sequels aren’t bad. I watched all of them. They aren’t as good as the original. But they aren’t bad either.

    Yeah, I never got the hate. It's an enjoyable movie with a neat concept that is pretty well realized all in all. It just ever shook it's "box-office disaster" moniker. Even to this day I hear people refer to Kevin Costner as "Kevin Cost Too Much", and it's all because of that movie.

    I loved this movie when I was a kid. Booooooobs.

    Watched it again as an adult and it turns out that it's a truly terrible movie.

    Wait. I just want to understand you correctly. The reason why people gave it a poor rating is because they thought it was pushing an ulterior agenda?

    Went to the theater to see this. Typical stoner movie with some funny moments. Then they dug up an ancestor of mine, ground his bones and smoked it to become smarter. Immediately turned on the movie.

    Method Man and Redman as artist were also dead to me after that day.
