So nice to see the elitism cireclejerk shutting out any discussion as usual.
The problem with the PT is that it has a hate following. Now if it is any help to you other series have it as well those being Micheal Bays Transformers and the Twilight films in fact I think Micheal Bays Transformers(or Bayformers as the G1 fanboys like to call them) have an even worse hate following.
I honestly don’t think that it has anything to with their immense lack of quality. Sure twilight is nothing but emotional and literal porn for women but the truth is that their are thousands of romance novels like that and it just so happens that Twilight has enough fans behind it that it got made into a film series. Add to the fact that it takes a really crazy spin on the beloved vampire mythology and the hatred is easily explained. Like wise the live action Transformers films are just like any other of Micheal Bays movie but it has the label Transformers on it so all the 80’s manchildren go crazy when they are released and to be honest I think something similar happened to the SW prequels(not counting rouge one).
Their are allot of bad movies such as food fight and Garbage pail kids but they don’t have a hate following so expressing your appreciation for them would probably be more exaptable especially within these circles.
This might change over time tho. I mean ones upon a time Schumachers Batman film had a massive hate following but now a days people seem to look back on them with quite the fondness or at least more acceptence then before, although in fairness it might have something to do with how extremely far Warner Brothers went in the other direction with it’s DC movies and honestly only time will tell if peoples general perception of the PT will ever change.
