    The Village: How could you not like this movie? I thought the ending was terrific.
    Signs: Love the mood of it

    I'll add more when I think of them. You?

    I enjoyed his movies earlier in his career but now I have lost all respect for M Night Shyamalan with all the garbage hes put out lately.

    The Village (agreed)
    A.I.

    Those are the two that immediately come to mind. If I can think of more I'll add 'em.

    Adding (not sure if people thought it sucked):
    The Perfect Storm

    Star-ship Troopers.
    All though, sense it's always playing, I must not be the only one or I'm not the only one with an unhealthy/unwarranted crush on Jake Busey.

    Mars Attacks! I remember most people thought it was lame and silly. Silly and stupid was exactly what I loved about it.

    I also happen to really like Selena although I was never a great fan of Selena's music and had never heard of her till the news of her murder. I used to watch the movie every single time I caught it on TV.

    I love "Signs" too, especially the scene when the first alien is captured on video at the birthday party.

    I actually love a lot of flicks that have been universally despised, but I think my #1 fav is:

    Ang Lee's "HULK"

    One movie a friend I once watched on VHS was "Women in Love," the movie with the infamous nude male wrestling scene. Outside of that we thought it was crap.

    Fast forward a decade later and I watched it again when it came on TV. I LOVED it. Oliver Reed and Alan Bates, such wonderful performers. And some interesting lines about how a man "needs both a woman and a man."

    Labyrinth (the one with David Bowie). I loved it but everyone I know is just kinda ambivalent towards it.

    Lost in Translation for the nuanced connection between strangers, sharing the same feelings while alone in a foreign land.

    The Matrix

    I loved this movie. It's the only film that I actually watched three times at the movies. I watched it with three different people in one week because I was so blown away by it. Each time I told a friend about it, they wanted to watch, so I went with them.

    A lot of my friends now hate the movie because it was one of the first to use CGI and all of the special effects. After it came out, everybody jumped on the CGI bandwagon and started making movies with way too much CGI and special effects. Shortly after the Matrix, everyone started flying through the air, going in slow motion and walking up building or on water. My movie enthusiast friends hate the Matrix because of all the cheesy CGI and special effects that it started. They claim that poor quality movies only get by now because of all of the special effect, not because of good scripts, acting or plots (i.e., anything by James Cameron).

    So I have to ask; are you a red pill or blue pill guy?

    I Love You Phillip Morris
    Sure, it's too whack for some tastes, but you have to consider that it's a true gay story and not a madcap fantasy.

    Or maybe they don't like Jim Carrey. I don't either, but really liked the film.
