I LOOOOOOOOOOVE Monty Python and Time Bandits and Brazil are fantastic movies.

I know they are niche, but it's unpopular to say that?  I love all of those.

Right. I think it is unpopular because a lot of people pass them by.

I don't like Terry Gilliam movies that much. I think that's a far more unpopular opinion amongst the geek crowd.

I thought I loved Time Bandits as a kid, and came back to it so many times. I tried showing it to my kid and I was finally like, THIS ISN'T ALL THAT.

My brother loved Monty Python but I hate it. Not sure if I dislike it because he tried to force it on me when I was too young to get it, if it's because he was a total a-hole, or because I just don't like it. Same with Gilliam.

Life of Brian holds up particularly well, I think. Some of its social satire is rather amusingly, or maybe depressingly, still very topical.

Holy Grail is okay. Some pretty darn good social satire bits in there too, which again still are amusing/depressingly relevant.

The Python series, however, I can totally understand how that could be a real rough watch for some.

That said, I adore it all, but I was raised with it.

Side Note: Cleese in his old age has gotten a bit grumblingly nostalgic to the point of being an odd mirrored version to his younger self (that would speak quite wittily about social extremism and the such). His younger self probably would have totally made fun of his older self.

It was better that Firefly ended when it did and then turned into Serenity. Otherwise Zoe would have turned evil, Inara would have become pregnant with something that would kill her, and Kaylee would have been completely taken over by some type of alien life that would have destroyed her personality.

Firefly fans are the most annoying fans short of Potter nerds.

Every time I think about rewatching Firefly, I encounter a Firefly fan and decide not to.

Oh and Matrix Reloaded is actually good, albeit not great like its predecessor.

I'd be super cool with never seeing another movie or TV show set in either the 50s or 60s again. Super tired of that time period and aesthetic.



I agree! It’s why up until about 3-4 months ago, I never watched an episode of Mad Men, ever! And then I did, and.....got hooked. Watched it all. And begrudgingly, that show is top 5 of all time for me.

Other than that, **** that time period.

Rise/Dawn/War Planet of the Apes trilogy is the greatest trilogy/set of movies. Better than OT. Better than Nolan’s Batman’s. Better than LOTR. Better than Daniel Craig’s Bond. Better than The Godfather 1-3.

Point of the post was to bring an unpopular opinion. My job is done here. And I stand by it.

The Dark Knight Rises sucked, Two Towers is horrid, Craig's movies are boring, and Godfather 3 is mediocre at best, but as part of a series it's terrible.

Hellraiser 10: Judgement.  I didn't know this movie existed until a few days ago and netflixed it.   It's very low budget and direct to video, but I actually liked it, and it is actually (IMHO) one of the better Hellraisers.  Possibly within the top 4.  It is very strange.  Part David Lynch-esque, part Se7en, part NIN video, a la The Downward Spiral era.  It has Paul T Taylor as Pinhead instead of Doug Bradley, but the guy did a pretty good job given the big shoes to fill.  It also has new demonic characters, but the one that almost steals the show is the Auditor, played by the writer/director/make up artist, named Gary Tunnicliffe.
