Name a movie critics hated but you liked

A movie that gets slapped by the majority of critics, but when you actually watch it you go, "Hmm... that wasn't bad at all..."?

I really enjoyed "Devil's Advocate" with Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves, for example.

I just saw Kingdom of Heaven and really liked it, despite the critics saying it sucked.

I thought 'The Interpreter' was better than it was given credit for - that's the only one I can think off of the top of my head.

Gladiator

Most of the reviews I've read weren't so nice, but I LOVE it. LOVE Russell Crowe, LOVE Joaquin Phoenix, LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOOVE Hans Zimmer (score composer). Perfect!

Personally, I still love Titanic for all its flaws, even though the majority of the critics are now embarrassed to remember the gushing reviews they gave it on its release.

I love Gladiator too!! I remember Ebert saying something like" the colosieum (sp?) looked like something out of a video game" I also remember the multiude of critics who bashed Joaquin Phoenix for his acting. Phoenix was my favorite part of the movie! He was so sympathetic and yet a good villian at the same time.


And yes Gladiator has one of the best film scores of all time.

Vanilla Sky. It has it's problems when weighed up against the original (which I saw 2nd), and the ending is a little shady, but it was wrongly panned by everyone when it's really a great, great film.

Oh yes, Vanilla Sky was wonderful. And whilst the same story, different to 'Open Your Eyes'.

Both are terrific films.
