    So there are always the cases of people really enjoying a movie that got mediocre to horrible reviews.

    An example of mine is the last two shrek films. They weren’t the first two but come on they were still charming and better than a huge amount of animated films.

    What are your thoughts?

    The Angry Birds Movie (Seriously, this was a GREAT kids movie, more solidly scripted than Zootopia, I would honestly argue!)

    The Lone Ranger (2013)

    Waterworld

    Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

    Titan A.E. (Kind of, I have good memories of it, but forget most of the plot.)

    Home Alone (Look it up!)

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Yeah, they f**ked up Deadpool and the CGI was not very well done, but the story, action sequences, and especially “Schriebertooth” kicked ass! A slam bang action film that definitely deserved WAAAAAYYYYYY better than it got, in my opinion.)

    This past year I simply did not understand the lukewarm reviews for Woody Allen’s Cafe Society, which I think is one of his very best movies ever.

    I thought Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken was superb and Oscar-worthy. The animosity towards it will always puzzle and amaze me. It seemed to be about her rather than the movie.

    This is complicated because critics are predictable. I’m usually more shocked but how can they love some movies to the extent they do. The hating is predictable. I wish American critics were less harsh on a vulgar auteur of incredible skill like Paul W. S. Anderson.

    Heaven’s Gate, obviously – it is, quite simply put, a masterpiece, that’s equal to the greatness of The Deer Hunter. I believe both the movie and the luminous Isabelle Huppert (one of her greatest performances with a character that is so unlike that we are used to seeing from her) should have won the Oscar, along with Vilmos Zsigmond’s breathtakingly beautiful, heartbreaking cinematography. This movie is pure greatness and so incredibly relevant today. People really should take the time and see it without prejudices.

    It’s an unbearable sit. I attempted to watch the Soderbergh edit, and the movie is deadweight regardless of the editing. The deliberate directing choices made it impossible for me to penetrate it.
