    Not really, but if you say so, Garfield.

    I tend to agree with Garfield on this one. sometimes a mindless comedy romp is just what the doctor ordered!

    Know of any movies in Garfield’s description, folks? At the top of my head, Super Mario Bros. (the one with Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo, Samantha Mathis, and Dennis Hopper).

    How to pick a really great movie? Always choose one the critics hate & say is no good.

    Very true. I mean, how else do you explain how so many hate The Oscars? ‘Professionals’ are the ones giving the awards to the ones THEY like or are too popular, while most of the true masterpieces get left behind.

    If it wasn’t for the fancy words, I might get the joke. I know sophomore means wise fool so sophomoric must mean wise but yet foolish, but I’m not quite aware what raunchy means.

    Critics do seem to hate some of the most fun movies.

    Yup! all the critics should be put in a museum. That is their only use now.

    That kind of thing happens. Critics didn’t like the new Godzilla movies for some reason. I say that movies are a matter of personal taste.

    As a general rule, if the movie is panned by the “critics” then my wife and I will likely enjoy it. We don’t go to the theater anymore, we rent it and watch it at our leisure. I like the ability to pause the show to get more snacks, etc.

    I’ve liked several films recently that critics hated. But then I usually ignore their viewpoint unless it’s already a film I was a bit iffy on

    In the 80’s my brainy/Mensa/MBA type buddies and I loved the Stooges, Jim Carrey movies, etc. Our snooty wives thought we were disgusting.

    Some of the greatest movies of all time, were panned by the critics.

    The Shining

    The Wizard of Oz



    Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory


    The Thing

    Home Alone

    It’s A Wonderful Life

    The Graduate


    All About Eve

    Bonnie And Clyde

    2001 A Space Odyssey



    And let us not forget….

    Star Wars. It was panned mercilessly by the critics in 1972 when it came out.

    My version is that any movies that merit an academy award is not anything I’d want to see. Only exception is ones for special effects.

    That’s why the box office receipts always trump the critical reviews. I feel about critics much the same way I feel about many wine connoisseurs. They can be useful, I suppose, but they’re not indispensable. I often find their arrogant smugness of their self-proclaimed expertise off-putting. But my untutored taste and palate has served me well enough for nearly nine decades now, so while I might consider their recommendations, I definitely go with what I like.

    Back in the ’70’s and ’80’s the Kansas City Star had a movie critic named Butler. My wife and I always read his reviews and went to the movies he hated instead of the crap he liked.

    If Liz were here, would she have the same opinion, or would she think that they’re pigs for watching such a ridiculous movie?

    The differences in audience and critic movie and TV show scores, particularly at Rotten Tomatoes, is often extreme.

    First one I thought of was Kentucky Fried Movie. I thought it was hilarious when I first saw it in my 20s, but when I watched it again 30 years later, I was less impressed.
