Is this different than a guilty pleasure?

@Penguin-Dust: A guilty pleasure would be something that you yourself recognize as objectively bad, which isn't necessarily the case here.

There are movies I like more then most critics do, but I don't think any of those had a really catastrophic crtical reception.

Legion and Van Hellsing. I love both of these films dearly, but neither one is looked upon very highly in terms of reviews.

These aren't perfect films, but they are what I call "My Top-20 Favorites that Critics Don't Like All that Much" (see links). I am genuinely fond these movies, and believe they are good films. There's no guilt or irony in my appreciation for them. I would re-watch any of them any day of the week. Many I have seen at least a half-dozen times, several over a dozen times.

BR2049 wasn´t considered bad with critics. Quite the opposite.

Was 'Real Steel' considered bad? If so, that.

@kingofwakanda: Alita had a good Rotten Tomatoes rating. Are we talking about the general public consensus here like if you asked a person walking on the street?

@catlike: A 60% rotten tomato score is the bare minimum for fresh. It was hated by critics but it wasnt beloved either.

Ah I see what you're talking about. It look's like the critics didn't like it after all, I stand corrected.

That movie is super underrated. 90s action classic with Shane Black one liners.

@paytience: I actually liked that one. At least back then anyway. Haven't watched it in years so I don't know if I would like it much now. And Elektra wasn't actually bad either really.

@magian: @kingofwakanda: I haven't watched it in years. This thread got me thinking about it. That movie should be a cult classic. I watched some youtube clips after this thread, and it reminded me of how great it is.

I'm downloading right now.

While I can understand the backlash I always liked The Lost World: Jurassic Park best of the JP series. More of a style over substance appeal for me though. I prefer a forest setting over jungle and it had great atmosphere.

I've also been especially fond of the Star Wars Prequel trilogy, yes even The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones(very underrated btw).

@kingofwakanda: @magian: Just got around to watching it again. Still so great. Just so many great zingers and exchanges. So 90's in the best way. And I'm also kind of convinced myself they foreshadowed 9/11.

@immadnice: Because of the shit ending. If it seems weird that Jamie Foxx’s unlikable character won in the end that’s because it wasn’t supposed to happen, Clyde won in the original script but Foxx complained and wanted his character to win so it was changed for the worse.

But the way things are going we'll probably get a remake sometime in the 2020s-2030s

X-Men Apocalypse and MoS are better than 90% of MCU movies. But yet they're rated so badly because of ridiculous brand loyalty by critics.

1)MoS by far has the top just because of how much I like it, even after getting into comics and reading up on the "real" Superman and 2)Thomas Jane Punisher: For an early 2000s CBM its still pretty damn good.

3) Alien 3. It's a shame they didn't use Giger's concept art for the runner though.
