There are some films that everyone regards as masterpieces. Films that nobody could possibly dispute as all time greats.
Eg...The Godfather, Schindlers List, The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Citizen Kane, Jaws, The Shawshank Redemption....
You know the kind I mean.
But has anyone ever come across a bad review for films like this? Post them if you've found any.
And have you ever come across reviews praising a film that everyone knows is a huge heap of shit? eg Battlefield Earth.
The only example I can think of is a review of The Shawshank Redemption in a film guide I own, it got 1 star!!!
"The movie burns with a dubious ardor. No one is likely to disagree with its point of view. No one is likely to be much interested either".
I really should get around to throwing that guide away.
