What awful films do you have a massive soft spot for?
I watched Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur this weekend and it was fucking fantastic. Really stylish. good pace, Jude Law chewing the scenery. The whole thing looked amazing. Not lying when I say I think Ritchie could have done a great take on Game of Thrones.
Still, 31% on Rotten Tomatoes and a near-historic box office bomb. PEOPLE HAVE NO TASTE
Was also going to mention Troy here, because I’ve always assumed it was universally panned, but it’s at 61% on RT so more mediocre than I thought. Still rocks though.
Shame he will never get to make the other 6!
I watched Aquaman the other day… Easily the best superhero movie on years
Honestly, a sequence of films about each of the knights of the round table, culminating in a crossover where they go on the grail quest? Fucking sign me right up! And then there’s the whole Lancelot / Guenevere thing to get into it… and Merlin wasn’t even in it! So much potential. I am an Arthurian nerd though.
Big Film Noir fan so I’m really happy to watch a lot of films in that genre that are just churned out 1940s b-movies. Same to a lesser degree with Spaghetti Westerns
Mystery Men was given bad reviews by most.
I really like it.
Just the usual commercial sell out nonsense
Les Enfants du Paradis
Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace
I always assumed they were quite critically admired, like Scream and Blair Witch and stuff, but no, 34% for the first one! God knows what the sequels have.
Phase IV. Them!
Basically anything that involves terrifying ants.
Pretty much any b movie tbh
Did you know that Bee Movie is a pun on B Movie?
The second Scooby Doo movie
Big Fat Liar (the Frankie Muniz/Amanda Bynes film)
Watched Sliding Doors on Saturday night. By all measures I should dislike it intensely, actually found it very watchable
Yeah Mystery Men has 60% on RT, could argue it’s overlooked / under-appreciated but it’s not seen as a bad film.
