i have to say, this was the first indy flick i saw as a kid, and that is not true for me at all, you would be as well to say the same to me about Star Wars, Empire, Jedi, Raiders, superman I and II...just because you don't love the movie does not mean that i wdo not truly love it as a piece of art just as much as an adult, or would not have the same reaction to it as an adult on 1st viewing.
the things that folk hate about it, willie, shortround, too dark, whatever...i love about it.
it's truly a great action/adventure movie, and in the indy pantheon has it;'s own unique flavour(unlike LC and KOTCS), that is what goes a long way, for me.

Which is what alot of people don't seem to get. TOD is great because it's so different from Raiders. I love LC as much as the next guy, but the third act pretty much became Raiders all over again. People love Raiders so much, they want the films to be like it. Which is wrong. I'll just watch Raiders if I want that. I appreciate what KOTCS did for moving it in a different direction. In fact, it shares the same criticisms as TOD does. People give LC a pass because it's like Raiders. I keep saying this, the movie wouldn't be as good without Connery and/or the idea of the father. If that wasn't there it would be a rehash of Raiders.

I agree. If you've seen the first, you know what to expect. It's not amazing by any means, but it is its father's son.

Hate? There's been a few people I've seen hate on it, but on average, the majority of people liked it. I think most agree it doesn't live up to the first film, but that's not really hating

Troll 2

People rag on it, but it's actually a very moving and powerful film. Much better than that boring piece of crap Citizen Kane that everyone pretends to like.

The Expendables. - It was 60+ on Rottentomatoes when it was first released, which I thought was reasonable.. but it has dropped to 40+ ever since.

Angel Heart. Still the best horror thriller of the 1980s' for me.

Gojira- Most Americans point towards Cooper and Schoedsack's King Kong as the greatest monster movie ever made, but I feel that Honda's movie is better, aside from a technical standpoint.

Blade Runner- While still being considered one of the greatest movies ever made, I still don't think the movie gets enough credit, particularly the Final Cut.

I recommend watching the original French movie with Louis De Funes to see how it's done (if you can find it that is)

A Perfect World. I never really see it mentioned much when people talk about Clint Eastwoods films. Its not his best but I thought it was a good movie.

Enemy Mine. A really interesting sci fi film of the 80's that people like but never seems to get as much focus as Wolfgang Petersons other films like Never Ending Story, Das Boot, etc.

Night of The Living Dead 1990. A remake of a horror classic that I really enjoyed. Stayed pretty faithful but made some logical updates for the times. The Dawn of The Dead remake is fresher in peoples minds but NOTLD 90 came first and really had some good acting by Tony Todd and the makeup was good.

Hollywoodland. Ben Affleck did a better job as George Reeves than I expected.
