If you like one movie for the same reasons you dislike another, it's game for discussion.
It is but I'm not sure it means anything. I think it's more meaningful if discussions of the film discuss the film

Movies are more than the sum of their parts and criticism of certain aspects in isolation will always appear arbitrary and hypocritical. Even the most reasoned arguments will have flaws somewhere if we're allowed to mine 40+ years of material for for that tiny example which backs up our point.
