Interests
A while ago, I tried to get a friend of mine (AraghenXD) to watch an anime called Kill la Kill. Instead of letting him make his own choices, I tried to force him to like it. This sparked what he called "The KLK War". And I'm ashamed to say that it still feels like it's going on. in the back of my mind, I still feel like he would love the show if he gave it a chance. But today this stops.
As unpleasant as the whole fight was, I feel like it was a good learning experience for me. I used to enjoy starting arguments with other people as a way of venting my feelings. But the KLK fights taught me to not enjoy fights anymore. I think what I actually like are discussions. Not fights. And looking back on the way I've been, I feel disgusted. I'm ashamed about the way I used to abuse other people's opinions in an effort to replace them with my own. I'm sickened that I always say everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and yet I try to force my own opinion into their heads. It was wrong of me to ever do something so sadistic. Our opinions are what differentiate us from eachother. By trying to force my opinions on others, I'm taking away what makes them different. I never want to do that ever again. I'm glad we can have different views on something.
I'll admit that it was fun when AraghenXD, general-sci, and I all wrote reviews of KLK, each with a different perspective. I would love to do that again some time. But not if it's going to explode into such a fight like KLK did. If they think it's porn, that's fine. Nothing I do can change that. And it was pointless of me to fight about it. But the show will always be one of my favorite animes.
AraghenXD, general-sci, and everyone that was effected by our fights, I am sorry. I will take responsibility for my childish actions and never let a fight like this start again.

Sincerely, 
The Chitinous Teen

Over the years, there have been quite a few films that I've noticed receiving so much venomous hate from people. But I've never agreed with the hate on some of them. Recently, I've noticed that everyone's been HATING Terminator Genisys. I understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But there have been some films that I REALLY can't agree with the hate they get. Now, keep in mind, these are my opinions on these films. If you want to keep hating on them, feel free. But if you want to hear me out, then keep reading.

#5: Terminator Genisys
   
I remember reading the reviews and fan raging in forums before going to see this one. I went in a little nervous, but walked out wondering what everyone's problem with the film was. I don't know why this is called the absolute worst of the series. (For me, that'll remain Salvation. Skynet catches Kyle Reese and doesn't kill him immediately why?!) Given all the ways they could have gone with another film, I like the direction they took, bringing us back to a time-travel heavy plot, but still keeping it fresh. I'll agree, it never has you as emotionally invested or thrilled as 1 or 2. But it's easily the best we've gotten since. 3 was a borderline-parody of Terminator, and Salvation tried something new, but failed. Genisys tries something new, and re-energizes the series for me. I won't say this is as good a reboot as Star Trek 2009 or Rise of the Planet of the Apes. But I am curious to see where they go with it.

#4: Prometheus
   
Okay, this is one that alienated most Alien fans, and left them disappointed. And I can understand why. They didn't give us the "answers" that they promised, due to Damon Lindelof coming in and turning the script into "Sequel Hook: The Movie". But I wasn't disappointed, because I didn't set any solid expectations. I'd read so many interviews with Ridley Scott. He'd say it was an Alien prequel, then he said it wasn't going to be an Alien prequel. He kept changing his mind, and I'd heard they would split it into 2 or 3 films. So I was more prepared for what we got than most fans were. That said, I still think it's an engaging and entertaining sci-fi flick. It successfully recreates the atmosphere of the first Alien, and has a gorgeous visual look. And Michael Fassbender gives such a strong performance, I could recommend the film for his character alone. It's not flawless, but it hits all my sweet-spots.

#3: Carrie (2013)
   
Yes, the 1976 Brian De Palma Carrie is a CLASSIC! But that doesn't mean the 2013 remake is shit. Alot of people seem to hate it simply because it's a remake. But it's more than that. It's a new adaption of the Stephen King novel. And one that I will actually say adapts his story better. In the original, Carrie's relationship with her mother wasn't as developed. Her mother just seemed like a crazy person. But the new film delves deeper into this mother-daughter relationship, and is helped by Julian Moore's FANTASTIC performance as Carrie's mother. Chloe Grace Moretz also plays a great Carrie. But so many people complain that she doesn't look ugly enough, and is too attractive. Well, Sissy Spacek wasn't all that ugly either. And looks aren't everything. You can be attractive, but still be despised by everyone at school. (Take my word for it.) And the remake also adds more dimension to the supporting characters like Chris and Sue. And I think the end when Carrie unleashes all her power is more satisfying to watch than in the original. The original will always be a classic. But I think there's still alot that the remake does better. It's definitely worth checking out if you're curious.

#2: Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
   
If any of you hate me for this, feel free to send me your hate mail for me to burn, because I don't think Crystal Skull is the worst Indy film. For me that is Temple of Doom. Because nothing in Crystal Skull is a bad as Willie Scott in that film. All I hear people do is nitpick on Crystal Skull. They bitch about nuking the fridge, or the CGI monkeys, or the CGI prairie dogs. I've never hated the film. I did see it when I was a little young, but even as I grew into the critical film-buff that I am today, I've never understood the hate for this film. I remember my older brother putting me in a neckhold and telling me to take back what I said about Crystal Skull being better than Temple. Everyone seems to treat it like it's a holy sin or something to like Crystal Skull. Well, I revisited it recently, and found that still enjoy it. If the original Raiders films were love-letters to the black and white serials of the 30's and 40's, then Crystal Skull is a love-letter to the B-movies of the 50's. That's why the plot is ridiculous. That's why the acting is cheesy. That's why the effects don't look convincing. They aren't trying to be convincing. They are trying to make a modern day B-movie. But the problem, is that the modern day isn't an era for B-movies. And that's why it was violently rejected. 

#1: The Amazing Spiderman 2
   
Ugh... this is one that I really, really, think gets undeserved hate. So many people jumped on the bandwagon, that it's now more like a cruise ship of people saying it's the worst of the Spiderman series and that it killed the character. People have even lied. James Horner (I know he's dead, gonna miss his music.) claimed that he didn't return to do the score because he read the script and hated it. That's bull, because he said he wouldn't return before there was even a script, and Zimmer was hired by the time they started writing.I'm disgusted by what some people have said about this film. It is NOT the worst Spiderman film. Not by a long shot! 3 will always remain the worst. That film is just a fucking mess. Even Amazing Spiderman 1 is worse than this film in my mind, because of its lazily retold origin story, terribly written villain, and so many other issues. And there is so much good in ASM2, that I can't accept anyone calling it the worst of the series, when some of the best stuff IN the series is in this film. It has the best Spiderman/Peter Parker, as Andrew Garfield perfectly portrays both sides of the character unlike Maguire. It has the best love chemistry between him and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. It has the most visually exciting action scenes. And it has the best score of the series, thanks to Hans Zimmer. There is so much talent and effort put into this one, that I can't believe people ignore the good stuff and toss it aside as being "all shit". I understand that the villains are very ridiculous, and underdeveloped, but I enjoy them as the kinds of villains you'd see in an actual comic book. And that's why Amazing Spiderman 2 is my favorite of the series. I'm not saying it's the best. Spiderman 2 is critically the best one. But Amazing Spiderman 2 perfectly brings to life the fun of the comic books I grew up with, and I think it's a shame that the reset button is being pressed again for Spiderman.

Did you agree with me? (Doubtful...) Let me know what you think of my list in the comments. Or better yet, tell me what films you think are "overhated".
Until then, this is the Chitinous Teen, last survivor of the fan rage wars, signing off. :XD:
