Here Are 5 Fantastic Films That Were Dumped on by Critics
Last night I decided to watch the brand new Cinderella starring Camilla Cabello. It was magical! The soundtrack was full of amazing remakes of great songs. It was bright and colorful, like a Baz Luhrman film and I kept thinking. Man, if I had a daughter, I would LOVE to watch it with her!
After I finished I immediately ran into an article with the header, "How many Cinderella remakes do we really need?" Um...first I take offense to this question. There can never be enough because it's a classic tale that's been retold for centuries.
I loved the version with Brandy and also Ever After starring Drew Barrymore. It got me thinking about how off these critics seem to be and so I decided to put together a list of films the critics pooped on but were really good.
Starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, it's a light-hearted movie about a woman who has decided to get pregnant by a sperm donor because she hasn't found the one yet. It is hilarious, heartfelt, and got really poor ratings. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 52% and the audience a 44%. They said basically it was like all the other romantic comedies out there. Not true, there are some really great scenes, lines, and acting coming from this film. If you haven't already seen it, I highly suggest checking it out.
What Dreams May Come
This film, starring Robin Williams is not only artsy but deep. For anyone who has lost a loved one, it dives deep into how far love really goes. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 54% but the audience was a high of 84%. These critics I tell you!
Man, this movie starring Kevin Costner, got totally dogged on. I honestly thought it was great. Maybe this is what it will be like in the future, we need to prepare! Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 48% and the audience even less with a 43%. It's fantasy at its finest and for sure makes you want to brush your teeth.
Another film starring Robin Williams, it's quirky and different and still full of all the elements a good movie is made of. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 30% and the audience a 39%. Don't knock it till you watch it.
This 2021 version starring Camilla Cabello is fantastic. Magical and full of bright colors. Rotten Tomatoes has already rated it a 43% but the audience isn't buying it and gave it an 85%. I don't even understand what they are scoring on because if more movies were put together with the type of care this one was, we would be sitting in a much better binging position. This is a must-watch and I can't wait to watch it with my nieces.
