    Since Alex Meyer started a thread on Critically Acclaimed Performances That You Despise, why don’t we have a topic on the opposite?

    What are performances that critics absolutely HATED and ripped apart, but you love, and will continue to go back and rewatch?

    I personally loved Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie in The Runaways.

    The Wayan Brothers in White Chicks. Wtf was Razzie thinking going trigger happy on nominations for White Chicks. That film deserved an oscar screenplay nomination and 0 Razzie.

    I’ve already said this 8 times on these forums already but idgaf. Ben Affleck was the best film Batman we’ve had and was the best part of BVS. BYE!!!!

    I feel bad that Dakota Johnson got a Razzie for 50 Shades when she was at least the one trying the hardest, Jamie Dornan looked shellshocked to be there. But then again the Razzies nominated Naomi twice for three different movies lmao

    You can all judge but I like the first Twilight movie and think there’s nothing wrong with the acting. The teenagers act like real teenagers and I think everything in general is an improvement from that slop Stephenie Meyer calls a book.

    Also Robert Pattinson in Remember Me. I’ve just always liked him and Kristen Stewart in almost everything so (even though they had to take on more high brow work) I’m glad people are finally starting to recognize their talents.

    -Dakota Johnson did a good job in Fifty Shades.
    -Ben Affleck is possibly the best Batman along with Bale.
    -White Chicks is great. It has its awful moments, but it’s very good, and the brothers did a good job too. The rest of the cast also had its moments, Carpenter and Phillips specially.

    Honestly looking back — and this is from someone who used to frequent TwilightSucks — Twilight only had such a big hatejerk because the initial circlejerk was so big. It was really not the worst thing, the romance was hardly worse than any dimestore romance novel you could pick up (where all manner of physical and emotional abuse is normalized depending on the author, from “rape her until she starts thinking of it as a passionate affair and likes it” to “abuse the fuck out of him and then make him grovel to you at the end because that’s the way mama likes it”) but “still a better love story than Twilight” was the meme. It was perfectly serviceable C-tier glurge for teenagers whose only crime was spearheading the new wave of fantasy YA romance. Though tbh I’ll never know why it was such a sensation, Pattinson and Stewart did all they could with the source material they were given… which was, granted, nothing.

    Eddie Redmayne was so criticized for The Danish Girl but I considered it his best and would’ve let him win over DiCaprio.

    One good thing about Twilight is that Stewart and Pattinson acted exactly as their characters were written. So kudos to them.

    Everyone in The Happening. That film was by far the best comedy film in 2008, and deserved to sweep the GG for best comedy.

    Jennifer Anniston in Marley and Me is her best performance and she should have gotten at least a globe nod there.

    Elizabeth Banks got criticized by many for being too over-the-top as Rita Repulsa in Power Rangers, but I thought she did a pretty good job. It looked like she had an absolute ball in the role.

    Then there’s Emma Watson in The Circle. Many have called her performance dull and lifeless. The movie is disappointing, but her performance is engaging enough to make you sit till the end.

    Dunaway in Mommie Dearest — Oscar worthy!
    Berkley in Showgirls — Should be studied for an unteachable approach to performance.
