Remember resigning yourself to go see Bruce Willis' first film 'Die Hard' 'cause nothing else was playing. "You mean that guy from 'Moonlighting'?" And two hours later it was like "Yippee Ki Yay, Mother****er!" So...those movies. Yeah. https://www.imdb.com/list/ls043909151/

BTTF!  I was so sure I would end up laughing at the cheesy 80's sci-fi, but I found myself loving it and being engrossed in the plot!  Great poll idea!

Interesting subject. Although I never approach movie being sure about anything, even though being spoiler-immune I usually know a lot about it before watching. You may never know in which way a movie will manage to surprise you and that's the magic of cinema.

I agree; if I care about the movie I hate spoilers, but I always seem to know more about any given movie than people around me, lol!  They never know it exists until it comes to the local theater.  :)

I don't recall the contrast ever being so stark for me.

I honestly don't recall my expectations to 'Shawshank Redemption' but it is definitely one of my absolute favorite movies (had it not been included it would have been 'Three Billboards Outside Epping Missouri')

None of these 35. :/
But the opposite has happened with Get Out (2017)
