80 Bashed Movies That I Dig


Dennis Reynolds

1,218 views

The films that I picked for this list all either have less than an average rating of 6.0 on IMDb or less than 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, and in many cases, both. Personally though, I'd rate all of them at least a solid 7 and many of them even higher for various reasons. I'm not gonna game anything like slasher series (unless it's a reviled entry I happen to like), Transformers or Batman v Superman which are all fairly popular really despite being disliked by critics and would have a significant amount of vocal defenders among the general public, just to make this more interesting. And although I already mentioned that a low rating on either IMDb or RT would qualify it for this list, I'm not gonna name anything where there's a noticeably huge difference between the two ratings on each site for some reason, because some films can just be polarizing more than anything.

Ooooooo, Chris Kattan fan? rih1 

 

I really dig Colin Firth, he's a big part of why I like What a Girl Wants. I'm glad he'll be back in the Kingsman sequel.

You should check out A Night at the Roxbury, I think that's his best movie. He's not in The Ladies Man, but I also find that movie pretty funny, and I like Will Ferrell's role in that as a leader of this group of guys who has realized that the Ladies' Man has slept with all their wives.

I dig Mallrats, Nightmare 4, Ghostbusters '16 and Spider-Man 3 as well, and you probably saw Big Fat Liar on my own list ny1 I wanted to like Jawbreaker but I just couldn't get into it rip2 I'd like to see Jersey Girl and The Bling Ring, and I'd be up for seeing Jennifer's Body again.

I'd watch any and all of them again ny1 especially jersey girl, it's the one I saw least recently. If you like Kevin smith, you'll probably like Jersey girl tbh, I don't get why it has such a bad rep
