View Full Version : Things You Like...That Nobody Else Does/Should

This isn't necessarily a "guilty pleasures" thread. You might consider whatever it is you like to be intelligent, or avant-garde, or even deeply meaningful.

And yet, nobody else does. And you can't even put your finger on why they should.

What's your TTNELTYD?

Case study:

I find the movie True Stories hilarious...and I don't laugh while watching it. I think the plot is brilliant...even though there's none to speak of. I love David Byrne's acting...even though it's intentionally completely lifeless. I love the music, even though...okay, yeah, the music's awesome.

The movie is basically a bunch of loosely connected vignettes, tied together by the very broad theme of a celebration in small-town Texas. For a good example of the strange, incredibly offbeat style, see the mid-movie number Puzzling Evidence (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2TyF1CbsDs&feature=related).

(For what it's worth, Ebert gave it 3 1/2 stars.)

Mine would have to be the Twilight books. Yes, the writing is bad, yes, the plot is simply a teenage girl's wish fulfillment, yes, the characters are all Mary Sues . . . but I just like reading it. Maybe it's just because it's one of the few book series that I own that are simply 'light reading' material. Everything I else I read tends to be dark fantasy, where things can get very depressing.

Also, Dominic Deegan, but ever since I started reading those threads over in the webcomics section, my enjoyment has been sucked away by the snark. Ah well, they did warn me . . .

The Walt Disney movie "The Island at the Top of the World." It's typical cheesy Disney, and I suspect the book is much better (haven't read it yet), but I just find it interesting that nobody else has ever heard of it.

O-Zone, the band made famous (?) by the video of the dude dancing to the "Numa Numa" song.
Basically most caucasian UnitedStatesians my age don't listen to anything that's not in English, so I listen to all sorts of great music that most of my peers have never heard of. I liked Shakira before it was cool, dangit!

Random foreign music clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpXXDw0elpE&feature=PlayList&p=5FAD8123945257A9&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=19). Warning: I'm not sure what these Russian lyrics translate to, but judging by the video, I'm guessing they are singing the praises of Cleavage.

Very bad movies. Favorite examples include:

* Howard the Duck
* The Leprechaun films,
* Anything featuring Freddy or Jason (though Freddy at least has also made some genuinely good ones.)
* Anything by Ed Wood
* Robot Monster (and other MST3K goodies)

Exceptions include Manos the Hands of Fate and anything by Uwe Boll. There are some things so bad that even I can't stomach them.

I think AvP2 is one of the most underrated comedies is recent memory. It was essentially a 2 hour long string of trope subversions, from the kid getting facehugger-ed at the beginning to the commando with a suppressed M249 at the end.

"Why would the government lie to us?" *MOAB* (me in the theater "BWAHAHAHAHAHA")

Dschinghis Khan

It's good to know I'm not the only one. Seriously, greatest band ever.

Also, the Catwoman film. Sure, it has its flaws, but it's actually not that bad, if you (like me) don't care that it "doesn't go well with established comic lore". I also like several other movies that have been rated rather poorly. And the Star Wars prequels are as much Star Wars to me as the original trilogy. And I don't find Jar-Jar Binks that annoying. Speaking of scrappies, I like Deekin from NWN as well.

EDIT: And Vanilla Coke. Gotta love Vanilla Coke.

It was not the only sci-fi/fantasy film. Some films in the Godzilla franchise come to mind. The Star Wars franchise arguably also qualifies.[/nitpick]

I like reading theatre plays. I don't mind going to actually go to a theatre and watch one, but I like reading them.

I also love movies I need to see twice or three times until I completely understand them, like most Lynch movies. I had an epiphany when I understood Mullholland Drive.

I think that the Misfits became much better after Glen Danzig left the band and that Famous Monsters is their best album, and Helena their best song.

And: Pears filled with gorgonzola are made out of bliss.

I love Dark City, though none of my friends do.

Same goes for Freddy Got Fingered. The roadkill'd deer scene is probably one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

For what it's worth, I also enjoyed AvP2. I'm not really sure if I consider it a comedy, but I have to give props for how insanely dark the movie is - facehugger on the kid, pregnant lady getting implanted by the pred-alien, etc. Also they killed the Too Annoying/Dumb to Live character, which is a trope that never gets old. Too many other main characters survived, though, which is a shame.

I would say that Dark City is the Matrix but more pretentious and with less amusing violence. So just like the Matrix sequels.

The plot of the Matrix is fine if you assume that it isn't stupid, only Morpheus is.

If anyone here likes the Matrix sequels they should say so in this thread.

That's a bit like asking why people watch Mystery Science Theatre 3000 if all the films the show uses are crap.

Also "haters" is a bit of a strong word, a lot of us actually like the webcomic in a "so bad it's good" sort of way. Heck, I find that that the Dominic Deegan thread is one of the friendlyist places on this forum.

From everyone I've heard talk about it, it was a terrible movie that omitted scenes that were essential to the plot, had a terrible script and just as terrible acting, even on Jeremy Irons's part. While I agree to the first part (especially the inside the scroll scene,) I think the hamminess is what gave it its charm. And Lee Arrenberg was hillarious as the dwarf!

You mean just the first two, or all three? I like them all.
I like them all too, but most people I've spoken to say that the OC and most of the other content, aside from Mask of the Betrayer for NWN 2 and possibly Hordes of the Underdark for NWN 1, is poorly written and cumbersome, and that the user-made content is infinitely preferable. I do not trust DLC of any kind, even official DLC, since I always seems to screw something up when I download it. My copy of Mass Effect hasn't even worked since I downloaded Bring Down The Sky.:smallannoyed:

Regarding the NWN campaigns:

From what I heard, those were actually decently well-liked. Personally, I couldn't stand the first NWN's campaign, much less the sequels, and I thought that NWN2 was at best inconsistent.

Still, beats some of the other videogame storylines. I'm looking at you, Fable 1 and 2.

I'd never heard Dark city referred to as a bad movie before. It's got great ratings at IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes, and Roger Ebert even did a commentary for it in which he praised it as a modern day Metropolis.

Sure, it wasn't the financial hit that the Matrix was, but since when has that ever correlated to quality? There's a reason the guy who wrote it went on to do Batman Begins and the Dark Knight.

Good luck.

It came out on Sci Fi about the same time as the 3rd (4th?) movie did. Of course, debuting on Sci Fi meant that it would get the standard Sci Fi treatment of a crappy time slot that would shift without warning, sometimes on a weekly basis. It, of course, starred Burt. I believe 4 episodes aired, of which I can only remember seeing one.

*Raises his hand* I own the complete works of John Milton, which I purchased of my own volition. I also read James Joyce's Ulysses of my own free will & I also recently picked up a copy of The Communist Manifesto to read.Oh, and I don't go to Uni, so I have no classes or anything that require these books. I just have a huge appreciation for a really good read of any kind, especially the classics.

You're kidding, right? Demons & Wizards are ironic listening? D&W is Hans from Blind Guardian and John Schaeffer from Iced Earth. They're incredibly popular in most metal circles. Trust me, this is not a Thing Nobody Else Likes. That would be like saying Iron Maiden is a TNEL.

hmmm.... my TNEL...

I think Annette, the new female vocalist of Nightwish, sings circles around Tarja. Almost everyone thinks I'm a complete heretic for saying this, and I probably am, but I think she's a million times better because she's not so damn full of herself and she actually puts emotion into her perfomances.

A lot of critics like Dark City but you just can't claim its more enjoyable than the Matrix to most people despite the half more logical plot.

Things not to like about Dark City:

Kiefer Sutherland is a terrible ham in it
The awesome detective dies too early
The singing voice for the female lead is terrible
The protagonist has roughly the same emotional range as Keanu Reaves, which admittedly makes it either slightly better or slightly worse than The Matrix on that front
The lighting is too dark, like they thought they knew what noir was but didn't bother to check what actual noir was like
The idea of an entire alien race of Richard O'Brien is ruined when you can only hire a single Richard O'Brien
The visual effect that comes from their foreheads when they manipulate reality is incredibly lame
The final fight is equally lame

There are some good things about it but if I'm going to rewatch one of those often compared two films its going to be The Matrix.

There's that ITV programme, called Demons that was on a while ago, the acting was pretty rubbish, there was at least one Mary Sue, a ton of predictable death traps (at one point the heroes were trapped in a slowly-filling tank of water) but I really liked it.

I think Annette, the new female vocalist of Nightwish, sings circles around Tarja. Almost everyone thinks I'm a complete heretic for saying this, and I probably am, but I think she's a million times better because she's not so damn full of herself and she actually puts emotion into her perfomances.

... I know someone who agrees with you. Its my opinion that I will not compare them. At least, I try not to...

However, that being said I think that DPP is perhaps nightwish's best album.

Hmmm...

I guess the Animorph Books would be a Guilty Pleasure, I certainly liked them and can defend them, don't know how the world feels however.

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. I probably shouldn't, but for some reason I liked it.

I don't see why not. It may not have been game of the year, but it was a lot of fun. It's one of the few games I've played that actually did first-person melee fighting really well. I never got tired of kicking people off ledges to their doom. :smallbiggrin:

But there is another game I've played that I think deserves a mention (though it may have been brought up already); Amplitude. I remember playing it with my friend years before Guitar Hero ever showed up on the scene, but it seems like nobody has ever heard of the game. Sure, most of the music was nothing special, but it felt so fluid. I'd probably still prefer it over GH if I had a chance to play it again.

I don't see what's so strange about it. It's a very decent game. Well, if you look past people flying like dolls after every kick and inexplicably placed spikes.

*Raises his hand* I own the complete works of John Milton, which I purchased of my own volition.


Me too! I know I couldn't be the only one.

the chaos outside nature:

a dark
Illimitable ocean, without bound,
Without dimension; where length, breadth, and height,
And time, and place, are lost; where eldest Night
And Chaos, ancestors of Nature, hold
Eternal anarchy, amidst the noise
Of endless wars...
