    Attack-Free Unpopular Opinion Thread

    Discussion is welcome, questions may be politely inquired, but NO insults or attacking allowed.

    Superman 3 is more logical than (Lester's) Superman 2.
    When I was a young boy
    My father took me into the city
    To see a marching band
    He said, "Son, when you grow up
    Would you be the savior of the broken
    The beaten and the damned?"

    Grave of the Fireflies makes me angry with the brother's actions instead of sad for them two kids, so its stress to make martyrs out of them as war's pure victims is borderline dramatic fraud for me. Not a fan. (I later came across Mike D'Angelo's review and he put it perfectly for me that it's more anti-idiocy rather than anti-war)

    Add to watchlist, though I find Popstar to be only mildly pleasant. How does Hot Rod compare?

    I'm so on board with this. I'd put Observe and Report in this arena too.

    Logan and Batman: Under the Red Hood are the only great superhero movies that have come out since The Dark Knight (I still haven't seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I hope that's number 3).

    How about this one. Under the Red Hood is the third best DC movie ever behind the Dark Knight and Flashpoint.

    Superman 3 is an excellent film and would have been better received in the post quippy MCU era. It's the Thor: Ragnarok of Superman movies.

    On the same riff, Howard the Duck is quite funny and weird and doesn't deserve the 'bomb' treatment it received.

    Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom is awesome, endlessly rewatchable, and the political incorrectness only makes the movie more dangerous and interesting. It's The Searchers of Indiana Jones movies.

    Forrest Gump might not be a great film, but I think the naysayers downplay how much of it is a satire of OH SO IMPORTANT touchstones in the baby boomer post-war years. It's mostly about a retarded guy taking the piss out of self-important boomers. Reminds me of that line in Walk Hard: "the 60s are a very important and exciting time!"

    Black Panther is a fine film, and its nomination for a Best Picture Oscar is not a cause for anger or disappointment in view of previous absurd Best Picture nominees.

    Most argument I can make here is I might rearrange the three but they would probably all be there.

    I have yet to disagree with anything in this thread. Loving it all.

    The initial lukewarm critical response to The Big Lebowski and Fight Club were correct and both of those movies were perceived to be underrated, but are now vastly overrated.

    I still like R. Kelly's music.
    Just because...
    Beautiful City (Asghar Farhadi, 2004) warm
    Our Neighbour, Miss Yae (Shimazu Yasujiro, 1934) mild
    The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (Noah Baumbach, 2017) warm

    The last book I read was...
    Purity by Jonathan Franzen
