First off IMDB is home to absolute bottem of the barrel. There are similar places of idiocy around sure, but that is where the internet goes to farking die. I'd just as rather ask my demented farmtown addicted grandmother for her views on Senna or Tucker and Dale vs Evil than click on the message boards of those actual basement dwelling faux snob rage monkeys.

That being said, many of those movies DO deserve such scores. Bad Den of Geek, bad.

Fifty-two mostly forgettable movies.

Either denofgeek or I have the wrong definition for "unfairly". I'm reasonably certain that I'm not the one who has the bad definition.

Conan The Barbarian (2011) was pretty good for what it was, despite its 5.2 IMDB Rating.

Hell of a lot closer to the Robert E. Howard source material than the Schwartzenegger ones.
 
2012-02-24 11:50:58 AM
F/X 2 bummed me out.
 
2012-02-24 11:56:59 AM
I've seen some of these films (not a fan of the horror genre, though Cherry Falls sounds like fun), but most of these are watch once and then forget.
 
2012-02-24 12:18:26 PM
I didn't see any awesome in there.
 
2012-02-24 12:23:16 PM
I'd say those are all rated about right.
 
2012-02-24 12:35:00 PM
Rubber would have worked better as a short YouTube film but it wasn't terrible, but just not enough ideas for 90 minutes.

The Brady movies were good.

I didn't like the Bill & Ted sequel but I did love the original so I will disagree with Den of Geek there, that movie was a big letdown.

I liked Charlie's Angels. Bill Murray and Crispin Glover and hot chicks kicking stuff for a bit? What's not to like?

Hostel was a solid horror movie.

The rest I either didn't see or agree that they sucked.
 
2012-02-24 12:42:13 PM
So I can assume that this writer has no taste in movies. While I did enjoy The Shadow, the Cable Guy, and Leap of Faith, the certainly weren't more than an mediocre rating.
 
2012-02-24 12:42:21 PM

basemetal: I'd say those are all rated about right.


Some of those were actually rated too high.
 
2012-02-24 12:43:39 PM
Mmm, Fairuza Balk in The Craft. The whole article seemed to be be ripping on all these movies, I'm not sure what their point was.
 
2012-02-24 12:54:11 PM
I didn't see any on that list worthy of more then a 3 or 4.

closer to the book doesnt make the movie good. (just a more faithful adaptation)
Didnt see the remake, but given the ratings, meh, will watch it when I am bored. or will watch the original.

IMDB is a great way for me to save time and money.
the odds that I will REALLY REALLY like a 5.0 movie or show is low.
the odds that I will REALLY REALLY like a 9.0 movie or episode is high.

tada, IMDB saves me time and money.

As far as I can see, most of the problems people had with this movie in the reviews was because it made use of 3D in the worst possible and most obnoxious way. I rented it from RedBox in 2D Bluray. It's not bad at all. The pacing is pretty breakneck and it's pretty darn dumb (think The Scorpion King), but it is by no means as terrible as the ratings make it out to be.
 
2012-02-24 01:25:01 PM
A more appropriate headline would be '52 Films'.


/Leap Of Faith is pretty good though
 
2012-02-24 01:25:10 PM
Black Sheep is the only one that doesn't belong; brilliant, beautiful film.

However, The Cable Guy got about four stars too many.
 
2012-02-24 01:26:02 PM
Never in my life would I have ever thought someone would ever consider Crocodile Dundee In Los Angeles as underrated. It's even worse than the second one, and that's saying a lot. In fact, all of them should deserve a lower score than the users from IMDB gave them.
 
2012-02-24 01:29:35 PM
Congo, The Craft, Krull and maybe Hostel all deserve 6.0+ ratings. The rest are crap.
 
2012-02-24 01:29:50 PM
From the list I've seen:
Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey
Blade: Trinity
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Charlie's Angels
Congo
Drop Dead Fred
George Of The Jungle
Ghost Rider...the first is better than the sequel
Hudson Hawk
Jason X
Krull
The Shadow
Supergirl
Universal Soldier
 
2012-02-24 01:30:04 PM
Krull was from my childhood so I still remember it as being something epic. If I watch it now I'm afraid my adult self will not like it. I LOVED Time Bandits as a kid. As an adult I though what in the blue hell was wrong with me for liking that.

IMDb can be bad, but you've just described /b/

Love your handle, BTW

52 films unfairly rated lower than 6 stars on the IMDb
Democracy is a flawed concept. Here are 50 films....


does not compute.

Howard the Duck 4.2 rating
 
2012-02-24 01:32:14 PM
wow, no, most of those are utterly unwatchable unless you're high

Maybe for popular stuff with lots and lots of votes, but for obscure rare movies it pretty much sucks and is highly possible to miss great gems if you were to follow IMDB scores.
 
2012-02-24 01:33:07 PM
So wait. Are they trying to say Justin Bieber: Never Say Never deserved more than 1.5 stars, or more than 6 stars? Either way, that's still too high.
 
2012-02-24 01:33:23 PM
The only movie I can see a case for being rated above a 6/10 would be Krull. I love that movie.

I semi-enjoy Congo for the sesame cake scene and for how goddamn stupid it was, but that doesn't really merit a positive rating.
 
2012-02-24 01:34:18 PM
I was expecting films that have more of a cult following. Most of those flicks aren't that good.
 
2012-02-24 01:34:28 PM
I stopped paying attention when then said that Alex Baldwin was in Along Came Polly.
 
2012-02-24 01:37:09 PM
FTA: The dialogue might be hyper-stylised ("Moveon.org" being the most commonly derided quote from the film), but that's a hallmark of the genre; it's not impossible to imagine a character from Dawson's Creek or Buffy The Vampire Slayer talking like that.

Oh, this should be good. I'll get the popcorn.

Also, Blade 3 wasn't "the Ryan Reynolds Show." It was an Apple commercial with Blade and Ryan Reynolds in it.
 
2012-02-24 01:37:10 PM
Skyline magically becomes a better movie if you think of it as the origin story for a comic book superhero.

/note, I didn't say it becomes a *good* movie...just a better one.
 
2012-02-24 01:39:47 PM
I do agree that Leap of Faith is a truly underrated movie.
 
2012-02-24 01:40:08 PM
IMDB ratings are controlled by males 15-35. There's a lot of "fake" voting on classic films by dem wimmin folk in the 40+ range, or any wimmin age group actually, just so Inception and other modern, mediocre films, can get into the top 10. I vote on IMDB, but It's really just a time waster.

/Inception was just that, mediocre, not an 8.8/10
//It's coming ahead of SEVEN SAMURAI, SOME LIKE IT HOT, and many other films, so fark IMDB users, fark them.
///Is a girl who loves films, and despite knowing that IMDB is a joke, still gets upset when she sees films overrated
 
2012-02-24 01:43:00 PM
i actually don't mind a few movies on that list, but honestly they're rated where they should be...a 5 is a 5....
 
2012-02-24 01:45:23 PM
Some of those movies deserve way lower ratings. But some of those movies are good rainy day weekend filler. Not good not bad just a good way to waste a day on the couch

As a Sword and Sorcery movie went, the new Conan was decent. But it wasn't a Howard story. It was a typical revenge story that has been seen a brazillion times. There have been five movies based on Howard characters (3 Conan's, Solomon Kane and Kull) and only two have been reasonably faithful. Kull, which was basically The Phoenix & the Sword (a Conan story) and By This Axe, I Rule. And Conan The Destroyer, though not really based on any specific story, it fits in better with the style of story Howard wrote. Unfortunately neither of which are very good films. Oh well, someday someone will actually attempt to make a real Howard story. The Phoenix & the Sword or Beyond the Black River would be my choices.
 
2012-02-24 01:47:46 PM
Krull was a bad movie, terrible even. I quit the movie no less than 4 times, but kept on with it to say I had watched the whole thing. That movie deserves no more than 3 stars.

/Watched it last year for the first time
//Might have liked it as a kid, dunno.
///I'm still angry that I watched it.
 
2012-02-24 01:47:51 PM
Last Action Hero barely qualifies with a 5.9, but is not listed.
 
2012-02-24 01:48:10 PM
I may not change anyone's mind in here, but Cable Guy is awesome.
 
2012-02-24 01:48:20 PM
This is sort of off the topic, but I feel like saying it:

What is the purpose of giving a numerical rating to individual episodes of TV, as IMDB allows its users to do? I've been watching "Monk" on Netflix before I go to bed, because I like detective stories and it's something light to watch before I go to bed, and often there are actors I can't place. I'd like to know who the people are who are like, "Season 3, Episode 5 is a 7 out of 10, but S. 4, Episode 5 is definitely an 8."
 
2012-02-24 01:48:25 PM
Just short of 60% rating was just fine for most of the films listed. For some of them it was the result of imdb voting being done under the influence of some industrial strength hallucinigens.
 
2012-02-24 01:50:09 PM
Read the first one - Brady Bunch - meh.
Along Came Polly? Wait, you think Ben Stiller has made a movie above a 3 in the past decade?

There were maybe two movies on that list that deserve a higher rating.

There are films on the list I truly enjoy(George of the Jungle, Hudson Hawk), but they are not good movies.
 
2012-02-24 01:52:40 PM
Was that meant to be serious? Those ratings seemed generous for just about every one of those films.
 
2012-02-24 01:54:00 PM
I'd say a lot of the movies on that list shouldn't even be rated as highly as they are. .
 
2012-02-24 01:54:00 PM
Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey? That's a great sequel. Worth seeing for no other reason than the bits where they challenge death to play games.

Leap of Faith and The Shadow are both films I kinda like. They ain't The Godfather, but they're OK.

Universal Soldier is worth seeing for the opening sequence at the dam which is pretty good. After that, it's shiat.
 
2012-02-24 01:54:07 PM
If anything, some of those movies are rated very generously. Hudson Hawk at 5.4? I saw that farking hunk of shiat in the theatre. It should've killed off Bruce Willis's career.
 
2012-02-24 01:55:52 PM
Crazy People was a pretty darn good movie. That being said, I haven't seen it in about 15+ years.


But it taught me the word "ShiatBox"

A movie about Robert E. Howard would be awesome. Dude was crazy.
 
2012-02-24 01:57:35 PM
I will rant about 1 or 10 voters briefly
seriously The Good The Bad and The Ugly receiving a vote of 1? I know you fanboys wanted The Dark Knight to be #1 because it was "best movie evar" but don't farking vote 1 on real best movies ever to get that shiat up.
"oh i kinda liked this movie" 10
"this movie was kinda boring/is ahead of this movie I like/I never watched this movie but oh well" 1
fark you
the end
