    This thread is for great elements in movies that you didn’t like, or you did like but had a negative reception from critics.

    For example, the VFX for all four Michael Bay Transformers films are really impressive. And even though I actually kinda like the film, The Lone Ranger has one of the most unique action climaxes of any film in recent years.

    What about you? What did you love in horrible films?

    Music and production design in the House of Wax remake. Oh, and Paris Hilton’s death by pikestaff.

    I gotta go with Rowan Atkinson in Johnny English. Script was a mess but he was so game for anything.

    – I was not a fan of The Tree of Life, but the movie was full of stunning cinematography.
    – Somehow, Brad Pitt looks 20-years-old (amazing make-up/CGI) in parts of …Benjamin Button, a movie I found quite overrated. 
    The Paperboy has a scene of Nicole Kidman peeing on Zac Efron. Also, he spends half the movie in his tighty whities, which I assume many people on GD wouldn’t complain about. I don’t know if either of those things are great, but the film certainly fulfills the second part of the critera.

    I think there are so many moments of brilliance in Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls that are just constantly interrupted by laughably bad, facepalm-inducing moments.

    Speaking of Tyler Perry, I thought Kimberly Elise was SOOO good in “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” which is a ridiculous movie with a schizophenic tone, but when Elise gets the chance to play the straight drama in it, she’s outstanding. I wish somebody would write her an Oscar movie.

    Also, does anybody remember the crappy supernatural thriller “The Haunting” and the fantastic production design that was way better than the movie it was in?
