Your trying to argue that 2 billion people have bad taste in movies, including most critics and you a a few others are the ones with good taste?

 

Go on.

Thank you!

So what? You can probably find the same amount of people who would be willing to convince you that genocide is a decent solution for certain problems, or we should use violence to enforce certain religious standards. That doesn't make you or them right. Same is true with pretty much everything else.

Would be much more excited for a lower budget super hero/anti hero movie aimed at a smaller but more adult crowd, all these movies feel so samelike and safe plotwise they have become a borefest for me.



5th place now.

1. Infinity War
2. Bohemian Rhapsody
3. Black Panther
4. Christopher Robin
5. Venom

For me the films I liked this year were:

1. Hereditary
2. Mission Impossible 6
3. Deadpool 2

Bohemian Rhapsody is one I hear good things about and will probably see next.

I keep hearing how much people like the majority of superhero films, but I suppose after watching so many I have lost a taste for them. Sometimes there's stuff I like, Logan, Deadpool 1 and 2, but that's about as far as it goes.

Go on.

You mean how Venom was destroyed by critics and even Avangers seems to be loosing the grip over the liberal critical consensus, whom finally start to realize that most of the movies are decent-ish at best

Nope, Infinity War is proudly sitting at an 84% fresh rating on RT.

I would consider this a bad year then.

Of course it's understandable if the superhero genre is just your thing.

But may I ask what movies you've seen this year besides IW, Venom and Aquaman?



It's another example of the widening gap between critical review and that of the common person. I personally enjoyed the movie and look forward to the sequel. Mainstream critics are starting to have different intentions today than they had in the past. Ideology is making certain things praiseworthy and other things not so much. The real question is will studios follow suit or continue to take the more capitalist approach and make content that sells well. Based on critical review, we wouldn't get a Venom 2 but based on commercial success, it's a no brainer. Before anyone says it, no I don't believe that just because something sells well, it is automatically good :)
