    I got to thinking about this the other day when Tron Legacy was on and I watched it all the way through. I liked the movie a lot but so many people hated it when it came out which I never understood.
    What are some others? I am sure there are many more but these come to mind right away.
    Tron: Legacy
    Vanilla Sky
    Prometheus

    I thought the new 21 Jump Street was pretty good and people hated it.

    I agree, I thought all the Hangover movies were masterpieces. People expected too much from the sequels. It wasn't the frickin' Godfather, OK people?

    I'll probably get killed for this but...I didn't think Crystal Skull was THAT bad.

    I liked The Postman even with some of its cheesy *** s-c-r-i-p-t. I like redemption stories.

    To be fair, they took material that was a clear R and tried to make it accessible for a larger audience. It kind of killed it for those who were big time fans of the comic. I didnt hate the movie, but it cooled me on film hopes. Im not sure they could resurrect it at this point, its kind of lost its popularity.
