    Well, I loved "The Jazz Singer" with Neil Diamond. A lot of critics really panned it, but I really enjoyed it. the soundtrack too.

    I can only think of the reverse--movies that many loved but I hated! Such as A Beautiful Mind and The Hours come to the top of my head right away....

    I loved "The Village," but most people hated it. I also liked the remake of "The Stepford Wives," and since the guy who played Dracula makes me swoon, I also loved "Van Helsing."

    I didn't "love" the Village, but did enjoy it to a certain extent...I have heard mixed opinions on it.

    One of my favorite movies ever from when I was a little girl is "legend" directed by ridley scott. It stars tom cruise and mia sara. It was a total bomb at the box office, but I looooooooved it. I have recently purchased the dvd, and I can see what the problems with it are now, but I still like it a lot.

    In a galaxy far far away

    Yay! Happy topic!

    I loved the Village

    Other Movies...
    Fight Club - very smart & actually better than the book... Hmmm...(at least the folks I know...)

    Star Wars Prequel... How did you think it was going to start? I so don't understand why everyone was so upset... He was a baby! And if you really pay attention to the story, you can see the natual progression to the "dark side." The only part I have a problem with is how unmanly Samual L. Jackson looked running in his robe during the battle at the collusium. Oh! And R2D2 flying...

    Kwanford, where people are upset is NOT in teh story line, but how George went about using computers over everything else. Every shot in these movies is mostly computer. The actors basically were acting in a green screen room. It makes the movie look crappy.

    and everyone I know hate's Jar Jar. How annoying can one get?

    That being said, while I hate what Lucas is doing with the movies, I will be first in line at the local theatre this May when the final prequil comes out... it looks to be good, story wise.


    George Lucas lost teh magic of star wars because he got too interested in graphics... it's not real anymore (not only that but why are they so technologically defieciant AFTER the prequils? wouldn't they advance?) :sheesh:

    Because of the Evil Empire!!! The people of the galaxy lost a lot of their control, money and technology once the Empire swooped down and over ran their governments. Also, the envirnments on most of the planets went south, so the Naboo in Movie 1 is a lot different 20 years later...

    Jar Jar was needed because the future Emporior needed a flunky to take the bill about building the droid army.

    The first Star Wars was made almost entirely on a movie soundstage with lots of models & blue screens...

    Ooops! My inner nerd is coming out... But its cool, I've been having this arguement approximately once every six months since Episode 1 came out... I'm just a sucker for Star Wars!

    And I honestly believe that all of the story lines will come together in Episode 3 ~ but like you, I will be first in line!
