Everyone has a movie they like that they cant understand why others dont like and VICE VERSA. Sometimes you can figure out why when its because the movie targets, for example, girl/tweens like TWILIGHT (although grown up moms seem to love this shit. . . . and the young boys. Just sayin'.)
Others are a little more mystifying. The movie that puzzles me is the shitty, boring, SO DERIVATIVE. . . . . . . . . PARANORMAL CRAPTIVITY. I CANNOT fathom, along with 7 friends, wtf anyone found scary from this crap. Now Craptivity was a success financially and YES, I KNOW its the hype, but still people claim to like it. (drinking the kool-aid of being CONVINCED they will like it?)
Another is one that flopped on the screen but every horror head, here included praises to high heaven, the Peter Jackson horror DEAD ALIVE. I cant even get into it and watch it for more than a few minutes. I think the most time I spent on it is 15-20, lol.
What movie success puzzles you ?
NO, Im NOT looking to be "convinced" these two movies are "great", whats YOUR choice ?
