    Default didn't/hadn't

    I didn't think I'd like the movie, but actually it is very good.

    I didn't think I'd like the movie, but actually it was very good.

    I hadn't thought I'd like the movie, but actually it was very good.

    I think all the three sentences make sense in terms of verb tense.

    What does a native teacher make of them?

    Thanks!

    Jason
