Critically hated movies that are actually awesome
Film critics are great. But no matter how steeped in cinema they might be, they're still just people — and every so often, they're liable to misinterpret a movie, write a rotten review, and end up panning something that's actually kind of incredible. Sometimes, an ambitious film comes along and manages to draw the ire of nearly every critic on the planet. These unfortunate movies are kicked into the gutter and largely forgotten by audiences, which is a shame because they're secretly amazing. Of course, everyone has an opinion, and thanks to the increasingly abundant array of streaming options available to home viewers, many films are never more than a click away — so even if a movie missed its shot at box office glory, there's nothing keeping us from appreciating it now. So today, we're ignoring the haters and looking at films that were wrongly roasted. From stoner romances to mythological adventures, here are some critically hated movies that are actually awesome.
