  • Yeah, I'll bet.

  • Welcome to watch Mojo.

  • And today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 movies that went from being hated to love.

  • Pieces of gloomy.

  • After all, it's not that awful.

  • Taste like a burger.

  • I don't like you anymore.

  • You met me at a very strange time in my life.

  • For this list will be looking at films that were initially despised or at least largely disliked upon release, but later grew to be widely appreciated.

  • They don't need to have been universally hated or loved at any one specific time, so long as there was eventually a notable shift from distaste to appreciation in the general consensus.

  • A spoiler alert is in effect here.

  • What hated movie do you think will eventually have its day in the sun?

  • Let us know in the comments.

  • If you like what you're hearing, be sure to check out the full song at the link below.

  • Mhm.

  • Yeah, takes your mhm two is doing when she's gone.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh, number 10 predator.

  • You son of a bitch!

  • What's not to love about a squadron of beefed up mercenaries fending off an ultra dangerous intergalactic hunter in the jungle?

  • especially when that squadron features not one but two future U.

  • S.

  • Governors in Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse the Body Ventura.

  • You're hit.

  • You're bleeding, man.

  • I ain't got time to bleed.

  • Yeah, okay, Well, according to critics of the time, many took issue with the threadbare nature of its plot, which cares little as each underdeveloped character is picked off one by one.

  • Yet that's exactly what we love about it today, pitting the best of both worlds in an amplified version of the Most Dangerous game.

  • Mhm mm between this Die Hard and the Hunt for Red October, John McTiernan was at the top of his game as the viscerally stylized third act showdown between Arnold and the Predator is absolute perfection.

  • Number nine.

  • It's a wonderful life.

  • How How could anyone get this wrong?

  • It's practically right there in the title.

  • You see, George, you really had a wonderful life.

  • Don't you see what a mistake it would be to throw away?

  • Well, it's a wonderful life.

  • Did go on to garner six Oscar nominations.

  • It wasn't without its detractors in 1946.

  • Also, let's face it, we can think of more than a few Oscar winners.

  • We'd rather be stricken from the record, though it's considered a Christmas classic today, if not the definitive one.

  • The films more heartfelt moments were seen as saccharine rather than sincere.

  • What is it you want, Barry?

  • What do you want?

  • You want the moon.

  • Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around and pull it down.

  • Maybe the old time you feel it's since grown into makes that aspect more palatable today.

  • But we have a tough time believing that anyone could not shed a tear of joy when George finally gets his happy ending to my big brother George, the richest man in town.

  • Okay, it truly is a wonderful film.

  • Number eight, The third man.

  • You're not liking her up.

  • Go home.

  • Martin's like a sensible champ.

  • You don't know what you're mixing and get the next plane.

  • As soon as I get to the bottom of this, I'll get the next plane.

  • The third man probably isn't the first film you think of when you think of Orson Welles, but it's an absolute must.

  • See if you're a film buff best friend I ever had.

  • That sounds like a cheap novelette.

  • Atmospheric tents and full of intrigue.

  • It remains one of the best film Noirs to come out of the classic period, rightly winning the Oscar for best cinematography.

  • Though it was positively received in English speaking countries, the country in which it was filmed, Austria had a much more negative reaction.

  • Pieces of gloomy.

  • After all, it's not that awful, depicting the realities of post World War two Vienna and then current Cold War cynicism.

  • The film was viewed as too much of a downer for Viennese people being released so relatively soon in the city after the war.

  • An understandable gripe, to be sure.

  • Number seven.

  • The thing I don't know what the hell is in there.

  • It's weird and pissed off.

  • Whatever it is, the only thing colder than the things Antarctic setting was it's critical reception you, too.

  • While is regarded now as a staple of both the horror and sci fi genres, not to mention quite possibly John Carpenter's best feature.

  • Many initially couldn't get past the rampant bloodiness drenched in an unappetizing nihilism.

  • Holy, maybe we should.

  • Fortunately, some were able to recognize the genius in its practical effects, but that's about where the compliments ended.

  • We can see how difficult it would be to compete with 1982 other sci fi classics like E T.

  • Star Trek to the Wrath of Khan or another initially overlooked gem will be talking about soon.

  • Number six Wet Hot American Summer.

  • This movie was simply way ahead of its time, as evidenced by its nascent Lee star studded cast.

  • Indeed, before any of them were famous, Wet, Hot American Summer included the likes of Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul and Elizabeth Banks, just to name a few, but far be it from critics to have recognized their talents.

  • Who deemed the film a scattershot mess that doesn't focus long enough to tell a single joke Taste like a burger.

  • I don't like you anymore, Really.

  • Because these days were pretty much laughing every minute at this incredibly silly yet somehow endearing film.

  • We had no place being over there.

  • It was a war we couldn't win.

  • Gene.

  • Yeah, well, I'm gonna go smear some mud on my ass.

  • The cult following became so strong, in fact, that Netflix developed two seasons that took the forms of a prequel and sequel series.

  • We're definitely writing home to our parents about this one.

  • Hey, I don't know if you notice, but I I did.

  • Does he fix your deviated septum, dear?

  • That's all that matters.

  • Number five.

  • Blade Runner.

  • Quite an experience to live in Fear, isn't it?

  • Released the same day as The Thing in June 1982 Blade Runner was similarly unsuccessful at the box office, with Ridley Scott unable to generate the same kind of buzz he did with Alien, even though it featured a megastar in Harrison Ford.

  • Many simply could not get past the pacing, criticized as being languid implants.

  • Those aren't your memories.

  • There's somebody else is granted.

  • The film is a slow burn, but it's awesome and packed to the gills with some of the most philosophical themes in a sci fi movie.

  • This side of salaries.

  • It's too bad she won't live.

  • But then again, who does?

  • Fortunately, we have since been graced with alternate cuts that entirely removed Rick decades narration, which it must have been a hindrance for movie goers of the time.

  • It's subsequent popularity spawned a sequel which was better received, if also financially, not particularly successful.

  • Number four Fight Club people just didn't get this movie when it came out.

  • And frankly, some still don't.

  • Regardless, it developed a fervent cult following that can't help trying to unpack the myriad of themes of disorder and toxic masculinity underlying the surface.

  • The first rule of Fight Club is you do not talk about Fight Club.

  • Second rule of Fight Club is you do not talk about Fight Club.

  • We'll fight.

  • Club did have plenty of defenders and fans upon release.

  • There was a louder majority that lambasted it for its glorification of violence and anarchy.

  • Oh, that was perfect.

  • Yeah, however, the fact that we're still talking about it today about how those supposed negatives factor in with the concept of an unreliable narrator or perhaps an ignorant one proves that there's more going on than just punchy, punchy.

  • You met me a very strange time in my life Number three Godzilla these days because of its pretty cheesy special effects, it's easy to forget just how jam packed the original Godzilla film was with allegories of war and nuclear devastation.

  • Car service.

  • Yeah, and when it was released, audiences in its origin country of Japan found it exploitative of such traumas, not to mention the suspension of disbelief was too great a task at the time when it came to a Kaiju attacking Tokyo.

  • Mhm, however, subsequent praise in international markets, particularly the United States, sparked a critical reappraisal that eventually led to it becoming one of the most prolific movie franchises of all time.

  • Long live the King.

  • Yeah, since that time Number two.

  • The Shining Here's Johnny.

  • We can understand Stephen King's dissatisfaction with the film, which greatly deviated from his novel.

  • But it's almost baffling to know that contemporary movie goers were not so much mesmerized by the movie but more well, baffled.

  • I don't think that's true.

  • Granted, at this point in his career, people knew anything Stanley Kubrick did was bound to be idiosyncratically Kubrickian.

  • But even critics weren't prepared for the fever.

  • Dream slash Descent into madness that is, the shining by.

  • The film's technical achievements were on full display.

  • Many had trouble qualifying those against any sense of thematic purpose, which is kind of funny, seeing as how a whole documentary was made on the possible hidden meanings of the shining.

  • The pathway that the ball took rolling down towards Danny is gone.

  • Now it's no longer there because it's reversed and you get a sense of a closure.

  • Now the hexagon is closed.

  • It's almost like he's been closed in before you unveil our top pick.

  • Here are a few honorable mentions.

  • Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me We never really deserved Twin Peaks.

  • Did we quit trying to hold on so tight?

  • I'm gone.

  • Oh God, like a turkey in the car equilibrium There are some surprisingly thoughtful themes explored here.

  • Miami Vice Michael Mann's reboots ought to be considered separately from the eighties.

  • TV show.

  • The probability.

  • It's like gravity.

  • You cannot negotiate with gravity.

  • Jennifer's body people have rediscovered it as being a hidden feminist gem, not the only murdered boys.

  • I go both ways.

  • Starship Troopers.

  • The securitization of wartime fascism was lost in us for many years.

  • Young people from all over the globe are joining up to fight for the future.

  • Number one Psycho.

  • It's difficult to imagine the horror genre as we know it today without the progenitor that is Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, however, that evolution was almost stunted.

  • If you're going by contemporary reviews of the film, she just goes a little mad.

  • Sometimes we all go a little mad.

  • Sometimes we all know it was shocking, especially at the time.

  • But many found the subject matter and themes absolutely abhorrent, with some viewers even walking out of screenings.

  • Let's put it this way.

  • She might have fooled me, but she didn't fool my mother.

  • Thankfully, the response from many average movie goers was so lucratively strong that eventually it sparked a whole cell reevaluation of the film, which eventually led to it being deemed a classic and easily Hitchcock's most recognizable film.

  • They'll see they'll see, and they'll know and they'll say why she wouldn't even harm a fly.
