I’ve been trying to get my partner to watch District 9 this past week. He had a lot of preconceived notions about what the movie was about, and kept insisting that he wouldn’t like it. I made a deal: If he watched District 9, I’d watch any movie that he really likes that I have so far refused to watch.
Well, he loved District 9. He was surprised at how much he enjoyed it—he was completely enraptured by it! A couple of days later, we watched a movie that he loves but that I had preconceptions about: Dreamgirls. And it was fantastic.
What are some movies/books/music that you thought would not be good but found to be surprisingly enjoyable?
