I never pay much attention to what people say about movies anymore. I mean everyone has different tastes and opinions. You get so many people that absolutely love a movie and then you get so many that find it horrible. If I have an interest in a movie, I'll go see it, despite what others say about it. Hell, I mean there are some people that thought Powder was a terrible movie.
I admit, I saw it back in high school. My mom or dad rented it, and having never seen any previews for it or knowing in the slightest what it was about, I watched it with them. In my opinion, it was a terrible movie, although I'm sure there are people out there that liked it.
I watched it when it came out on video. However with some of the more, I guess "mainstream" hollywood movies these kind of movies can either have 1 of 2 endings:
1) the person disappears completely never to be heard from again
2) they die
Of course this isn't always the case in such movies...but I guess what I'm saying is that at the time I remember enjoying the movie.
