Blogathon: Against The Crowd

Just stumbled across this blogathon and it is a fantastic idea. With the title Against the Crowd it is pretty self-explanatory you get to pick two films which everyone seems to love and you hate, and then a film everyone seems to hate and you love. Hosted by Dell on Movies!

The Rules 

1. Pick one movie that “everyone” loves (the more iconic, the better). That movie must have a score of at least 80% on rottentomatoes.com. Tell us why you hate it.

2. Pick one movie that “everyone” hates (the more notorious, the better). That movie must have a score of less than 30% on rottentomatoes.com. Tell us why you love it.

3. Include the tomato meter scores of both movies.

 

Do you agree with my choices, or do you think I am totally mad?
