    A while ago, I started a thread asking people about films that everybody loves, but they personally hated. Today, I thought I’d ask the opposite question. What’s a film that was basically destroyed by critics, but you personally didn’t really mind? Even if it’s Battlefield Earth, feel free to say it (as long as you give your reasons why).

    The Cat in the Hat

    I fully admit it’s a very bad movie, but I still am entertained by it. It’s like a terrible train wreck that I cannot look away from. A definite guilty pleasure. In the same regard, I also kinda love Jupiter Ascending.

    May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.

    Marie Antoinette (2006)
    In keeping with the underlying theme of isolation found in her best work, Sofia Coppola eschews the usual biographical guidelines and infuses 18th century France with alt-rock to present a semi-revised tale of not just the most iconic French queen but a young girl thrown into a situation against her will and doing the best she can to cope. The beauty of the film lies mainly in the levity employed throughout that parallels the way modern celebrities both revel in privilege and indulge in excesses while also being trapped by lack of privacy and faced with endless scrutiny.

    And while critics were not too fond of the choice to emphasize an opulent visual style (which seems unavoidable when you have sumptuous cinematography from Lost in Translation photographer Lance Acord, cotton candy-hued costumes from four-time Oscar-winning designer Milena Canonero, and an unprecedented access to the legendary Palace of Versailles) over some lackluster recycled historical narrative, I found it refreshing to see a biopic about people involved in the French Revolution that in no way feels dull, stuffy, or like a history lesson.

    Off the top of my head…

    Showgirls (best film of 1995)
    The Counselor
    Passion (anything from De Palma is better than the consensus)
    By the Sea
    I Love You, Daddy (incredibly self-aware; sue me)
    A lot of Paul W. S. Anderson’s filmography is really great work.

    Bride Wars is fun.

    Fight Club
    Death Becomes Her
    Nacho Libre
    Clue
    Napoleon Dynamite

    Those are some of my favorite movies ever. The highest rated is Napoleon at 64 on Metacritic. Which wasn’t really a thing back then, but I remember critics not really liking any of those.

    They weren’t “destroyed” (except Clue), but common, there’s a lot of value in them even if they’re not perfect films.
