About my collections

I'm a fan of a ton of genres of film, I'm not the biggest reader but I like quite a few books at this point, and I used to be a pretty big gamer. I still play once in a while, but not as much as I used to.

I wrote that description a long while ago, and I've actually been getting better about it, and enjoying literature as a medium more than I used to.

Thanks for your comments on my Stop ruining my childhood list, my friend. Prior to Crystal Skull, Temple of Doom was my least favorite Indy film for its ridiculousness & the annoyance of the Willie character. I revisited the entire trilogy shortly before the 4th film came out, and while I still found Doom annoying at times, there's a palpable sense of fun that allows me to forgive it's flaws somewhat (though not entirely). Watching Crystal Skull I never got any sense of fun from it, and thus its annoyances came across even stronger for me. The entire film felt tired, forced, and just plain awful to me. And as for Willie vs. Mutt, they're both mostly worthless characters in my book, as their only value is to elevate the ongoing drama.

As for the SW prequels, I should add that I've only seen each film once in its entirety, on their respective opening weekends in the theatres. I've since seen parts of I and II on other peoples' TV sets, but haven't sat down to revisit any of them in full. Each film was entertaining to an extent, but for me they were mostly forgettable which I can't say of episodes IV-VI. And I'm not saying Jedi is perfect by any means, but compared to the prequels it's improved in my estimation. Of course my love for the original 3 films may just as well be due to my growing up with them, whereas the prequels came out in my adulthood. Had I been a youngster at the time the prequels came out I might have a more favorable opinion of them (and thus a different view of all 6 films).

With regard to the Halloween remake, I thoroughly enjoyed it & to a lesser degree its sequel. Neither is as good as the original Halloween & Halloween II, but I don't see why the remake & its sequel are so hated either. Neither was necessary (or Great), but for what they are I think they're solid films. The Platinum Dunes films look terrible from the trailers though, & the feedback on their remakes I've received from reliable sources (friends with similar tastes in horror to mine that saw the originals too) indicates they ARE terrible & thus I've written them off rather than attempt to watch any of them.

Glad to know from someone who suffered through the first 2 Transformers films that I'm right to continue avoiding them. :)

All right, now that I've taken up half of your comments section I'll move along. Hope all is well & you had a great weekend!

Thanks for the votes & comments! I haven't written off Live Free or Die Hard yet...in fact seeing your list reminded me I still needed to add it to my Netflix queue. I meant to see it, but for whatever reason I keep forgetting about it/putting it off.

I agree with you that Halloween III mostly gets hated due to the lack of Michael Myers, as well as the fact that it's more of a B-movie than its predecessors perhaps. Unsure if you're aware, but at one point the intention was for all the Halloween sequels to be unrelated stories. That died when the 3rd film flopped.

As for Burton's Planet of the Apes and Alice, I think most of the hatred for them stems from people expecting them to be either remakes of the original films or more faithful adaptations of the books. But both of those films are cases where he told NEW stories within the worlds that others had already established. And for what they are I feel they're good (though not Great), entertaining movies. Glad to know you agree.

Finally, on my underappreciated list, I know several of those are on Netflix instant watch if that's helpful to you. Anything you check out from that list, feel free to share your thoughts!
