Top 10 Good Movies with Bad Rotten Tomatoes Scores

There are times when critics would bash on a movie that isn't even that bad. So I created this list.
The Top Ten
1 Suicide Squad

Score: 26%

After I watched Suicide Squad, I immediately started working on this list because, at this point, I do not understand critics! Suicide Squad is awesome! The characters were great! The action was great! I especially liked Will Smith as Deadshot, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

At the theater I went to, they gave everyone a poster with Harley Quinn on it. I will definitely be hanging it on my wall. The Joker is also in it, but don't get too excited. He's more of a supporting character.

I was upset that someone spoiled the villain for me before I watched the movie, but I won't spoil it here. Also, be sure to stay midway through the credits. I hope we get to see more of these characters!

How is it that Iron Man 2 has a 72% but Suicide Squad has a 26%? I know there are probably more people that like Marvel, but I can't give them that excuse. It seems like critics just love to bash on DC films.

2 Home Alone

Score: 55%

Home Alone is about a kid who gets left behind when his family goes on a Christmas vacation, and he ends up having to deal with two burglars who get into the house. Sounds amazing, right? I don't like this film as much as everyone else does, but the fact that this has a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes kind of bothers me. It seems like a pretty good family film and a great one to watch during the holidays.

The first two movies don't deserve a low rating. The first should be higher than 62%, and the second shouldn't have a 30%. It should be certified fresh. However, the last three deserve their rotten ratings.

3 Transformers

I loved this movie! This is the only movie in the franchise that is worth watching. All the others painfully lag behind the original.

A classic robotic action movie that helped shape other good movies of my generation.

My score: 80%. This and the third one are the best Transformers movies. The rest are mediocre or worse.

4 Hook

Score: 30%

I am "hooked" on this movie. This is my second favorite Robin Williams movie, with number one being Aladdin, of course. The storyline is very creative. Peter Pan forgets his past and returns to Neverland. The actors did such a great job in this film.

I surprisingly liked Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell, and Dustin Hoffman was an impressive Captain Hook. I really like the lost boys, especially Rufio! Rufio is played by Dante Basco, who also played Zuko in Avatar: The Last Airbender.

I absolutely don't get the hate that critics have for this movie. It is a great film for both kids and adults.

5 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Score: 54%

Keep in mind, if it wasn't for this movie, they wouldn't have updated the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland to include Captain Jack Sparrow and Davy Jones. Now, I know this sequel is a step back from the first Pirates film, but that doesn't mean it's particularly bad. It's still pretty fun.

Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow is still enjoyable, and it has some entertaining battle scenes. There's an entire sword fight that takes place on a giant roll-away wheel. That is very awesome!

There's going to be a fifth movie next year, and with the Rotten Tomatoes scores for these movies getting lower with each release, I wonder how it will end up. Dead Man's Chest is not as good as the first movie, but still a good time. It is definitely a pirate's life for me.

6 Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

This film, based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel of the same name, is an ode to an American legend and does the book justice. There is no underlying plot besides proving that America is a superfluous absurdity.

Excessive exaggerations of the American Dream that most likely died somewhere between the Vietnam War and the present day. This is a wonderful film all in all. I think it exposes the human condition for what it is, which is a comical absurdity, and provides us with an honest and fantastic truth that we have no actual idea why we are here on planet Earth.

7 Madagascar

The first two have a good story. The third lost it but is still better than most for its colorful animation. Sure, it's not Pixar, but Pixar has had some recent stinkers. It's better than Shrek.

This innocent film is better than The Wild. The Wild copies this film, which is why people, including me, like this film more.

8 Spaceballs

This is probably one of the funniest spoof movies I've seen!

How did this get a low score if it's so hilarious?

9 Brother Bear

Score: 38%

Very underrated film! How is it that something like this gets 38% and something as bad as Hercules gets 83%? Brother Bear is a cute, kind-hearted movie and can also be emotional sometimes. It also has a very good soundtrack by Phil Collins, who also did the soundtrack for Tarzan.

I know the idea of a man being turned into a bear is kind of weird, but I feel like the heart in this film and the beautiful animation make up for it.

I never understood why the critics hated this movie. The animation was beautiful, the story was fantastic with some good lessons for the fun characters to learn, and it's something the whole family can enjoy.

It's everything you would expect from a Disney movie, which is why I can't understand why this would be rated so low at the same level as Home on the Range and Chicken Little.

10 Basic Instinct

Douglas was great. I've had better relationships than the one depicted with Stone.

The Contenders
11 Man of Steel

Score: 55%

Man of Steel, in my opinion, is one of the better Superman films. The action is great, the actors are great, and I find it to be pretty awesome! Henry Cavill is surprisingly amazing as Clark Kent/Superman.

This movie, however, has some of the worst product placement I've ever seen. Other than that, I really like this movie. There are many critics that hate it due to it being a bad representation of Superman, but if you see it as its own thing, it's not that bad.

I genuinely think this is one of the greatest superhero films ever made.

12 Space Jam

Score: 36%

As you probably don't know, I am a huge Looney Tunes fan! I loved Looney Tunes ever since I was a kid! This movie didn't disappoint me! It has the same humor that we are used to in Looney Tunes, and it's pretty creative.

Some aliens gain basketball skills after stealing them from professional basketball players, so it's up to the Looney Tunes and MJ (Michael Jordan) to get the powers back by beating the aliens in a basketball game. Also, Lola makes her first appearance in this film.

For what this movie is, it's pretty good and I don't think it deserves the hate it gets.

13 The Angry Birds Movie

This movie is pretty decent, but bad because Angry Birds games have unnecessary spinoffs (like Angry Birds Evolution or Kart GO!). Fortunately, I saw a funny moment where Chuck and Bomb drank water from a so-called Lake of Wisdom, which The Eagle lubricated (peed in) and made a reaction.

Very funny, but The Emoji Movie doesn't have funny moments, and The Angry Birds Movie was way better than The Emoji Movie. The first iconic app of all time was dead, and the sequel was better, unlike the spinoffs (except Bad Piggies). I don't really care about Rotten Tomatoes though.

14 Man on Fire

Denzel at his best. Definitely a must-see.

15 Oliver & Company

Just like The Fox and the Hound, this should have a 95%! This ranks up there with The Fox and the Hound as one of the best underrated Disney movies!

This is such a cute movie. You can't go wrong with Disney.

16 Tron: Legacy

Score: 51%

I honestly don't know why people hate this film. There's probably a good reason, but I just don't see it. I'm not saying this is one of the best Disney films ever, but I still enjoyed it. The original Tron wasn't really that good, and yet that one got a 70%.

I thought the characters in this one were really likable. Olivia Wilde as Quorra was my favorite thing in the movie. Jeff Bridges was pretty good too.

But the thing that absolutely blew my mind was how they used CGI to make Jeff Bridges look young. I had never seen anything like it before at the time! They did the same thing with Michael Douglas in Ant-Man and Robert Downey Jr. in Captain America: Civil War. This is such a visually entertaining movie and definitely worth watching!

17 Saw

Score: 48%

I remember when I "saw" this movie. Lol. Do I even need to explain why the critics are wrong on this one? It's Saw! One of the best horror movies ever! It's well-acted, well-scripted, and absolutely horrifying! This movie just keeps you guessing who the killer is. To this day, I still see Jigsaw in my nightmares! If there was any horror movie worth watching, it would be Saw! And maybe Conjuring 2.

WHAT THE HELL? Saw is one of the greatest horror movies, yet it falls on a rotten 49%? Get screwed. Rotten Tomatoes may think they know everything, but what they don't know is that they're rotten themselves.

18 Big Daddy
19 Minions

Minions is better than the Despicable Me series could ever have been. The same goes for the trailers of The Rise of Gru.

20 The Sandlot

Silly but brilliant! Nothing can top it for inspiring little ones!

A masterpiece! Screw what the critics say!
