Romeo & Juliet- (the play) cause teenage over-melodramatic infutuation is deep and meaningful and the greatest love story of all time and stuff
I had an English teacher who told me that a lot of scholars entertain the idea that Shakespeare was actually making fun of teen infatuation with Romeo and Juliet. I like that idea, though I don't claim to know anything about Shakespeare.

Howl's Moving Castle(the movie)- and it used to be a good book from one of my favorite authors too!
I didn't like Howl's Moving Castle, either, but I loved Spirited Away.

I like almost all of EffEmDoubleYou's suck list. However, I definitely agree on late-period George Carlin and Radiohead (to an extent). I just saw them on Tuesday, and the show was very 2000s-heavy. In other words, a gigantic pile of MEH. Oh, and Sublime. "Groovy" is not amongst my criteria for great artists.
And somehow, Paul McCartney has become UNDERRATED at this point. That's weird, and a little frightening. He's been a complete cornball for decades, but he put out far more enjoyable songs in the 1970s than any other ex-Beatle. John Lennon had two very good solo albums, sucked drunken monkey balls for years, and made a decent AOR album months before dying. George put out maybe two albums' worth of decent material. Ringo had one.
Another band that is popular for no good reason, except their style fit the era: The Cars. They put out maybe 50-60 minutes of good music in a 12-year career. "Good Times Roll" and "My Best Friend's Girl" flat-out suck.
Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"
