what are films that you personally (and unironically) adore and will defend to the end, but find are generally maligned…
High School Musical
This School Rocks Like No Other!
Troy (Zac Efron), the popular captain of the basketball team, and Gabriella (Vanessa Anne Hudgens), the brainy and beautiful member of the academic club, break all the rules of East High society when they secretly audition for the leads in the school's musical. As they reach for the stars and follow their dreams, everyone learns about acceptance, teamwork, and being yourself. And it's all set to fun tunes and very cool dance moves!
why do people hate this movie? positive ideas and literate directing and catchy tunes. get ur head in the game film fans. if you dont like high school musical you must be fake. have any of u watched the scene where zac efron realises his true heart lies in the song and not in the game and then at the end when they all realise you can do what you want and noone can stop you!!!! what an uplifting disney channel original. also corbin bleu has armpit hair and i dont remember that from my childhood.
what team? wildcats.
also another friendly reminder that i do have good taste i just love high school musical pls don't unfollow me. im gonna rewatch the sequels too. miss darbus is the love of my life. what a milf.
this > quentin tarantino and stanley kubrick's entire filmography combined
im so drunk i just cried at breaking free
High School Musical isn't the worst thing to came out as some people have said. I thought the movie wasn't that good but lets be honest here we have seen much worse.
The movie isn't insulting like some bad movies out there that are arming for young teens and the movie isn't painful to watch as well. The movie may not be good but it's nowhere near as god awful as people have said.
Rewatched, stretched into widescreen, on an ER waiting room TV with a sad, dehydrated toddler in my lap, which is probably the way this is meant to be seen. Pales in comparison to the third movie; musical numbers are still a cut above any of Hollywood's attempts at reviving the genre on the big screen.
That cafeteria scene invented being dramatic and overreacting to things
yall who gave hsm 2 stars are fucking liars
So our flat had a bit of a nostalgic moment and put this on. Turns out I can remember all the words, 10 years later...
i will forever love high school musical.
Vulgar Auteurism at its finest.
It seems time has been surprisingly kind to Disney's high school musical. Having only seen this once before several years ago, (on Indonesian television of all place, in what I'll guess about 2007 or maybe 2008), I was very dismissive of it and its followers, but upon rewatch, it's undeniable that this holds a fairly firm position in pop culture, or it at least once did. It's bland, generic, mediocre, and overwhelmingly un-stand-out-ish; so much so, in fact, that it's impossible to be resentful or direct much hate at something so "meh" and inoffensive. Nedless to say, this is an easy target, and hearing so much of how garbage this was upon its initial release probably tainted its image quite…
A good film! Far better than the TV movies on nowadays. Great music and a fun plot!
Fast paced, high calibur, relatable, capitalistic, beyond catchy, forward thinking. A real fun time.
The epidemy of a hilariosity. Performances are just brilliant, keep an eye on the extras in the background.
The dialogue is pure 2000s-Disney-greatness.
Everything about this film strikes the perfect balance between rubbish and optimistic that you can't help but love every minute of it and it all feels so intentional and is so well paced that all of its flaws come across as nothing less than endearing.
also excellent and ahead of its time critique of masculinity particularly within the black male. Just great
with soaring flying why was troy concerned when gabriella didn't sing he was meant to sing the first line! idiot.

B-movies. Exploitation. Outsider art ("art"). Live-action adaptations. Romantic comedies.…
getting queerbaited by a fanbase and not a franchise is such an experience
