    I have a lot of time agreed with critics, but many times I simply stare at Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic and think how is that a bad movie. Many were saying that about Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and J.Edgar last year. I have also disagreed about movies critics have liked, and many were angry to see such things as War Horse or The Tree of Life what are your thoughts on this?

    I used to check Rotten Tomatoes and take it into consideration.  That was until I saw that Hocus Pocus was at 36% or something ridiculously low like that.  I was so outraged, I never went to the site again!

    I also almost always agree with critics but sometimes they just get it absolutely wrong. Yes, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is perhaps the best example in the modern era of a movie critics thought was bad but which I thought was very good.

    As for a movie critics thought was great and I hated I say the best example is… “Gosford Park”. Don’t hit me! I just thought it was an incredibly boring movie and I usually like british films (The Queen, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, etc…).

    Death Becomes Her is 44% “rotten”.
    Well, that day RT really died in my opinion.
    I can understand the raitings for MM! or TIL (I don’t agree with them, but I understand it), but DBH? No, just no.

    But all is subjective. There are enough films with even a 100% perfect score I’d never watch again and some movies having only 20% or lower raitng and are still at least entertaining.

    I’m sorry, but can somebody tell me what MM and TIL stand for? I know they’re initials for movie titles but I can’t seem to make out for which movies.

    What about the extremely underrated Legend of the Guardians:The Owls of Ga’hoole it was great except for the humor! It has a 50% and 53 on metacritic and rotten tomatoes.

    I’m sorry. *drop*
    I though users here would know this. Guess not all do.
    So I’m really sorry.^^”

    Most things I chalk up to a difference of taste (for instance, “The Tree of Life” fell flat for me, but I’d hestitate to say critics got it wrong, per se).

    But in the case of Borat, I don’t know how that lazy, contemptful film was regarded as great satire, or even good satire, or even satire at all.

    ^And on the opposite end of the spectrum, I loved ‘Borat’. Hated ‘Bruno’ though.

    In The Bedroom.  It seemed to get critical acclaim and I watched it and thought “This movie sucks.” It was to me, very unoriginal and just sort of reminded me of a bad Lifetime Movie.
