    The fact that Hocus Pocus has a 30% rating is an absolute crime.

    Really? I have to replace Die Hard with Hocus Pocus then. That's my annual Halloween movie. Love it

    No Michael Mann film should ever be certified Rotten. One of the greatest of all time.

  • It's so funny you posed this question. I just finished reading a hilarious article in favor of officially making 'I Know Who Killed Me' a cult classic. 

    I hate this movie (7% RT!), but after reading the article a part of me wants to watch it again.

    "Belly", without a doubt. Love that movie and watch it at least once a year. Doesn't get nearly the credit it deserves. The whole thing is basically one long gangster rap/r&b music video. Makes sense considering it's directed by Hype Williams (directed about 200 music videos). But alas, it sits at a whopping 13% on RT. I think Hype Williams could have been a great movie director had Belly went over a little better with the masses. There's still hope though; he's the type of director that I could see HBO developing a great series with.

  • The fact that The Money Pit is at 47% makes me distrust that website now.

    Speaking as a die hard Heat fan, Mann has made some solid hot garbage. Even some of his movies I like, I wouldn't really consider good. I'm looking at you, Ali. Or as like to call it: "The movie where Will Smith does an impression of Jimmy Kimmel's impression of Karl Malone for 157 minutes, and the legacy of Malcom X is thoroughly insulted by Mario Van Peebles' inability to show even an ounce of believability". A little long winded, but you get the point. Jon Voight should have won an Oscar that year for his potrayal of Howard Cosell.

    Is there a movie at 1 or 0%? 


    EDIT: Apparently there's quite a few. 0% RT movies list: 



    Some have the most interesting titles: 

    Sex Lives of the Potato Men
    Orgy of the Dead
    The Toolbox Murders
    Solarbabies
    The Calcium Kid

    If anyone has seen any of these films please, Dear God, give us a synopsis. 

    Max Steel is the most recent one I've heard of.

    How Did This Get Made did an episode on Solarbabies. Just listening to that episode gave me the opinion that it's fucking nuts.

    Synopsis:
    In a sun-scorched post-apocalyptic world largely bereft of water, a group of youthful orphans, including Jason (Jason Patric) and Terra (Jami Gertz), spend their time playing a hard-hitting hockey-like game and defying an authority known as "the Protectorate." When Daniel (Lukas Haas), one of the younger orphans, discovers a strange sphere, it leads to a struggle between good and evil after the scheming Darstar (Adrian Pasdar) swipes the powerful orb.

    Just Friends (terrible movie but I love Anna Faris in it) -- 42%

    Mr. and Mrs. Smith -- 59%

    I looked up Face/Off and shocked to find it has a 92% rating. What? I enjoyed it for Cage and Travolta playing each other playing themselves (Wait, did I get that right? It's confusing.), but it's a ridiculous movie. 92%!

    The 1999 Mummy Movie is 58%. I watched that movie a lot growing up, and I think it's a tighly written adventure movie with a lot of heart and great characters. I revisited it instead of watching that trash one in theaters right now, and it holds up amazingly well. Deserves better!

    Face/Off was one of the biggest mysteries of the 1990s to me.  I was firmly in that film's demographic wheelhouse (I even had watched and loved John Woo's A Better Tomorrow and Hard Boiled at that point) and I just hated it and everyone else thought it was an amazing critically acclaimed actioner.  

    Just Friends (terrible movie but I love Anna Faris in it) -- 42%


    Mr. and Mrs. Smith -- 59%

    I looked up Face/Off and shocked to find it has a 92% rating. What? I enjoyed it for Cage and Travolta playing each other playing themselves (Wait, did I get that right? It's confusing.), but it's a ridiculous movie. 92%!

  • I'm totally baffed by some of the ones mentioned here: Heavyweights, Wet Hot American Summer, Tommy Boy and Black Sheep?  Do critics just more regularly come down negatively on "broad" comedies in an attempt to come across as sophisticated?

    Also, Face/Off is one of those movies that irks me to hear people even praise faintly, so 92% is like some kind of sick joke.  I guess this is why I've never paid much attention to Rotten Tomatoes.
