The announcement that an Indiana Jones 5 trailer could possibly be shown at the forthcoming D23 Expo has provided fans with a great deal of enthusiasm. The latest movie has had more than its fair share of problems, and it still has to contend with the intense criticism that will undoubtedly be directed in its direction after it has been made available to the public. The fans are already torn on the issue of the upcoming sequel; some of them believe that it is pointless and guaranteed to fail.
However, one thing that can be relied on regardless of the excitement that follows the release of any particular picture is the fact that people will in fact have different points of view. For some people, certain movies are instant classics, while other people may consider the very same movies to be terrible. Redditors have shared their take on which movies they believe are unfairly criticised, despite the fact that some of these sentiments may be valid.
1. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)
Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg reteamed for a new edition of the Indiana Jones franchise nineteen years after the conclusion of the previous film in the series. Reddit user Pandalorian defended the film by saying, “Sure the movie didn’t turn out to be as good as any of the original three, but I still thought it was good and it still felt like an Indy movie…” Despite the fact that the film failed to win over fans, Pandalorian is still a supporter of the franchise.
Some people who are fans of the Indiana Jones franchise refuse to believe that Crystal Skull is a valid entry because of how polarising it is. There is no question that it has managed to maintain a certain number of followers, despite the fact that it did not achieve the same level of success as the three films that came before it. There are many sections in Crystal Skull that still highlight classic Indiana Jones, so critics who haven’t seen the film should probably give it another chance.
2. Waterworld (1995)
At the time of its release, this epic starring Kevin Costner was the most expensive film that had ever been produced. The crowd was prepared for a spectacular experience given the price tag of 175 million dollars. The post-apocalyptic survival story was a dismal failure, unfortunately. Years of mockery followed, until a user on Reddit named death pheasant gave the movie a vote for unwarranted hate after posting the following: “I’m not afraid to say it. Waterworld.”
Not only did the failure of Waterworld cause studios to be more conservative about their budgets for a period of time, but it also marked the end of Costner’s stretch of success that lasted from the late 1980s to the middle of the 1990s. It’s possible that audiences might be more receptive to Waterworld in this day and age, when the problem of climate change is a serious worry. A brand-new television show that will be based on the premise is now in the production phase.
3. Alien vs. Predator (2004)
Someone came to the conclusion that a movie starring both the Predator and the Alien would be successful due to the continuous success of both of their respective film franchises. Even though it did quite well at the box office, fans of both the Alien and Predator properties do not have a lot of affection for the film Alien vs. Predator. A user named texasvapor on Reddit has responded to the abuse with the simple phrase “Alien Vs. Predator.”
When it comes to horror based on science fiction, it is difficult to find two more iconic villains than the Xenomorph and the Predator. Even though the picture did not manage to totally win over its target audience, it did manage to find sufficient success to warrant a sequel. This is something that is completely understandable, as the initial belief that this film would find a substantial audience is perfectly understandable. There is a good chance that, in the course of time, the movie will garner a larger popularity; this is especially likely to occur in the event that the concept is ever reimagined.
4. Revenge Of The Sith (2005)
There aren’t many film franchises that generate as much controversy as Star Wars does. When the third instalment of the prequel series was finally released, viewers were already feeling rather dissatisfied with the whole endeavour. But actualsnow, a user on Reddit, disagrees and says, “Revenge of the Sith.” I have the distinct impression that I was one of the few people who enjoyed the way in which it brought the two different Star Wars sagas together.
When the Star Wars prequels were first made available to the public, reception to them was mixed at best. However, with the passage of time, they have managed to win over a larger audience. Whether you enjoy it or despise it, there is no denying that the prequels address a hard topic and provide viewers the full account of how Darth Vader rose to power and Anakin Skywalker fell from grace. Even though it’s not a flawless movie, “Revenge of the Sith” is often considered to be the most enjoyable instalment in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
5. The Village (2004)
The Village was M. Night Shyamalan’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed film The Sixth Sense, which had first been released five years earlier. The suspense film did well at the box office, despite the fact that many people didn’t bother to see it. A user named LurkerSociety on Reddit believes that this is due to a prejudice against Shyamalan and his film “The Village.” People probably don’t like the director, and that’s why the movie gets a lot of negative feedback.
The audience has, in fact, provided Shyamalan with a significant number of opportunities. People were so blown away by The Sixth Sense that they became frustrated when subsequent films failed to live up to its level of excitement. The judgement of whether or not The Village is a decent film is subjective; nonetheless, LurkerSociety may have a point when they assert that the picture received an unjust evaluation from a significant segment of the general population.
