I have to add Brotherhood Of The Wolf on the list. I loved that the movie was a mix of different genres.

Can't tell you why, but I loved it.

Gregg Araki's "Nowhere" and "The Doom Generation."

I can see why a critic would hate these movies, but they are very interesting nonetheless and an excellent example of making interesting movies with disjointed to no plots.

Do you mind if I sit on your face and cut a big juicey fart?

And he could still get work after that!

LOL...indeed.

Well, Araki's latest film, "Mysterious Skin," is probably getting the best reviews of his career. I can't wait to see it someday.

I wish "Nowhere" would get a Region 1/NTSC DVD release. It's available in Region 2/PAL in the UK.

You know, I just realized I was listening to Ebert and Roeper review that film last night and it didn't click who the director is. Now I definately want to check it out.

Gladiator I saw this movie in the theatre so many times when it first came out and I never see movies even twice.

Sliding Doors is one of my FAVORITE movies and the ONLY movie with Gwyneth Paltrow that I like.

A Life Less Ordinary is also perfection, though I'm not sure that it was slammed by critics, I would bet it was and it certainly wasn't successful at the box office.

Say It Isn't So is a Farrelly Brothers movie (not written/directed, only produced) that was slaughtered by critics but I think it's pretty funny overall. Sure, some parts are baaad, but "You have a robot?!" is one of the most-repeated-movie-lines between me and my husband. And Orlando Jones in that movie

Adding more to the list........

Bladerunner : Bashed by the critics and by the leading actor Harrison Ford and I still love it!
Flash Gordon
Legend: Yes Mia Sara is annoying but Tim Curry kept me entertained.
Labyrinth: A movie I enjoyed since childhood. It scared me a little when I first saw it.
Essex Boys: Sean Bean is the main reason I enjoyed the film. Bean is great when it comes to portraying ruthless thugs/villians.
The Lost Boys: A 80's classic
Highlander
Point Break

Very underrated movie....too dark of a comedy to come out when it did. If it came out now, I think it would have been recieved better. I mean, didn't this follow Dumb and Dumber and Batman and Robin on Mr. Carrey's resume?
