A lot of movies get made over the years, and because of the rise in technology and of film lovers, we have no shortage of both reviews and reviewers. Many times, it can save us an agonizing trip to the theater so we don't see cinematic tragedies like Norm of the North. These online bloggers and critics often have a devout following and are generally respected among the Internet community.
In most instances, these critics are correct about the movies they watch. While the appropriate scores that are given could definitely be argued, it gives the reader a good idea of what to expect. If it's a bad movie, I expect it to get a low score and so on.
But have you ever gone into a theater, watched a movie, enjoyed it, then found out that audiences and reviewers trashed the crap out of it? I sure have. Because reviewers are human, they will not get a movie review right every time. As a matter of fact, there were many situations where a film simply came out at the wrong time, was misunderstood, or even hated because of who was in it. This has resulted in some great franchises actually being scrapped because their movies weren't received well enough. It's tragic.
In my lifetime, I've seen this happen more times than I can count on my fingers and toes, so here are 20 movies that deserve a second chance, were unfairly burned by fans and critics alike, or just didn't do as well as they should have.
20 The Amazing Spider-Man 2
19 Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
18 The Hobbit Trilogy
17 Transformers: Dark of the Moon
16 Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
15 The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
14 Edge of Tomorrow
13 Super Mario Bros.
12 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
11 The Visit
9 Dredd (2012)
8 The Mummy (1999)
7 The Incredible Hulk
6 The Village
5 The Lone Ranger
3 Treasure Planet
2 Terminator Salvation
1 Jurassic Park III
Considered the worst movie of the franchise, it was wondered how Universal Studios would redeem itself after Jurassic Park III. But it didn't deserve all the hate it got. A new director was heading it up instead of Spielberg, so you have to at least give the guy credit for trying to live up to the standard. Instead of spending time with the people, Jurassic Park III spent more time with the vicious dinosaurs, and somebody please explain to me why that's a bad thing? Not to mention the movie had one of the most memorable scenes in cinematic history when the raptor talked to Alan in a dream.
