On TCM right now is A PLACE IN THE SUN (1951) a movie I strongly feel I don't want to look at.  It's great and lures you in with this promise of success and love and ELIZABETH TAYLOR when she was as beautiful as beautiful could be...  I kind of hate this movie. 
And and and SHELLEY WINTERS is so very annoying... WOW!! 

There must be other movies I hate to love... ?

Coming back again... this forum is day-ed...  TeddyR 

THE HEIRESS and ANNA KARENINA were both on last night (RALPH RICHARDSON day).  I like both of these movies, but do find them depressing, particularly that VIVIAN LEIGH version of ANNA KARENINA.

The Underworld movies.  They're just sooooo bad, in ways I normally despise.  Yet, somehow, I've enjoyed every, single one of the damn things.

I'm the same way with the Resident Evil movies.  Although I will argue that the first Resident Evil was actually a good movie.

LASSIE COME HOME (1943) 
I love that dog and just about everything else works for me.  Except RODDY.  He's great as a talking chimpanzee person.  Otherwise, even as a child, UGH.

Showgirls, without a doubt. If we are going for movies I don't understand why I love them so much Mermaids is also on my list.

LOVE STORY (1970) 

ARTHUR HILLER died today, which reminded me of this film which I hate to love (it's so contrived, badly acted, and the book is even dumber)...  This one always reminds me of my brother and sister-in-law who had then only recently fallen in love and ALI McGRAW looks a lot like my beautiful  sister-in-law... it was around that time, under 9 years of age (by far) I read that "filthy" book and even THEN thought was DUMB.  That book was probably in my family's house because of my sister-in-law.  I get weepy looking at this scene... I think of them.

I had to chew on this for a while-
A SENSITIVE PASSIONATE MAN (1977)-a made for TV movie.
I saw this movie about 5 times-on network TV twice when it first time came out in 1977-and about 3 more times when they rerunned on Sunday afternoon when it was blizzarding outside on UHF channels.
It has David Jannsen as a real depressing drunk. I knew it was bad-just downright depressing-but I watched it 4 more times! It's like watching a slow motion car wreck.
Plus-it's got Angie Dickinson-who I would watch in anything!

2 words. The Academy Award for Best Picture. Actually, that is 6 words, but?!  . . . of the 88 or so films so honored, I have seen 36 or 40.9% and not seen 52 or 59.1% Of those seen, I liked 18 or 50% and disliked 18 or 50%. I could have done just as well as choosing my likes and dislikes, by flipping a coin.

Though, that is only half the story. The last time I saw the film that won was in 2000, and the last time I saw a film that I liked was in 1984.

It just that the Academy and I have different tastes and interests.

Never been a fan of the Academy stuff-it's mostly garbage. Judged by old men with too much money and power in Hollywood. It's meaningless-TITANIC is a joke-but good films-like the BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN are shunned-I was amazed that the killer psycho movie with Anthony Hopkins did so well-being a REAL classic like Hitch,s PSYCHO is an aclaimed classic-didnt even get nominated. I enjoyed SILENCE OF THE LAMBS-but it wasnt that great.I seen better. BABY JANE-ROSEMARY'S BABY,the EXORCIST,all great horror films.But they're horror films-so somehow they get put on the back burner. Horror films-good ones-can touch your emotions better than mainstream stuff-and if they're really good-move you and scare you-becuase if something really-REALLY scares you-than it grabbed you by the throat and said-"LOOK"! Thats a hard thing to do with art.
What was I talkin'about? Oh yeah-I like horror movies!  Drink

TITANIC might be an example of a movie I hate to love (yeh, yeh, I already love to hate it).  If it's on (and channel flipping reveals the usual dearth of watchable programs) I do then look at the thing.  I'm fascinated by that film's incredible BADNESS !!!

Right on.  Mainstream American media were not prepared for a movie like THE EXORCIST in 1973.  SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (I agree, good but not the greatest) winning "Best Picture" nearly 20 years later is perhaps, in it's own way, making up (or catching up) with all those GREAT movies that were ignored just because they're HORROR.  I'd add one more to your list of GREAT HORROR ignored (but gobbled up by us consumers): THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE

INSEMINOID (1981)

This is such a lame, half-assed, boring drip feeder of a movie but somehow I find myself coming back to it. It's not even really in my 'so bad it's good' territory, there's not enough charm or unintentional hilarity there. The tag line should've been "In Space, No one Can Hear You Yaaawwwnnn...'...and yet I still watch it every so often, like I'm partially trapped in its web of dullness.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
