    Movies you had the wrong idea about

    There's been a few times that you missed a certain film because you thought it was going to be a certain "way" and decided to skip it. But then over time you end up catching it somehow (on tv, rental etc.) and you end up proving yourself completely wrong by really liking the movie? Happened to me a few times in the past....

    Cemetary Man - hilariously dark cult film i thought would be stupid, and it was but in a good way! I really love the film now..

    Narc - I assumed this would be your run of the mill cop flick. I had no idea it would be so intense and stylish. One of my favorites now..

    Eyes Wide Shut - Unfortunately i was one of the people who let the bad reviews get to me, but after seeing it myself. I dont see why the film was beat up so bad. Its haunting and really beautiful. Viva Kubrick!

    Fat Albert - It looked like a kids movie. When in fact it's really for the whole gang. This movie has an amazing lesson to tell telling. A lesson we are never too young to learn.

    Hahaha, TRON ! TRON is really...ermm, what's that word >_O

    I had a bad idea about Shark Tale, because I thought it was a Finding Nemo remake to keep up with Disney, but when I saw it, it was soooo hilarious... the jellyfish rasta guys with the whole gaming referrence ~ "up, up, down, square, circle, left trigger, right, down" that was great... I think that's what got me to go to the theater....

    Others would have to be ..... some I can't remember.....? I'm having memory problems @_@

    I gotta say for me even before the movie came out I had something against Harry Potter

    but it was one of those times when my bro and his gf hogged the tv and I got nothing else to do that I gave the first movie a chance, and overall it was quite an interesting movie. Afterwards, I went back to hating harry potter

    Mostly I get the wrong impressions about comedies.

    Malibu's Most Wanted, Eurotrip, Out Cold - I thought these flicks would blow and blow hard but I found myself laughing myself off the couch.

    On the flipside:

    Napoleon Dynamite, Anchorman, Bad Santa - The previews looked like they'd be laugh riots but all three movies were horrible and very unfunny.

    Elephant. Have you seen this movie. I had no idea what it was about. I wont spoil it for anyone. All I can say is go rent it, its definately worth your money.

    Another movie that surprised me was Requiem for a Dream. I had no clue what it was about, and the movie just flat out stunned me. I loved it. That same night I also watch Donnie Darko for the first time so I got a bit of a double hit combo with two movies I had no idea what they were about that surprised me.

    Ocean's Eleven.

    DIdn't really know what the movie was about cos wasn't really that keen on it even though some of my friends says it good. Then went to the cinema one day where there was nothing on apart from Ocean's 12. Forced myself to see it since my bf wanted to but was suprised at how good it was!!

    Rented Ocean's 11 out later and yup i liked it!
