    28 Movies That Are ACTUALLY Really Good

    Warning: controversial Batman opinions ahead.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which unpopular movies they actually love. Here are the results.

    1. Catwoman

    Warner Bros. Pictures / Via

    "I love the Catwoman movie with Halle Berry. It's a fresh origin story about a strong, awesome woman! And she looks fierce in her suit."


    "I love, love, love this movie and the soundtrack is really gorgeous. I just don’t get the hate."


    2. The Village

    Buena Vista Pictures / Via

    "Some people hate it, and I have never understood why. It's suspenseful and a little creepy. Bryce Dallas Howard is amazing."


    "Most people really hate the ending, but I loved it and understood why the characters did what they did."


    3. The Transformers franchise

    Paramount Pictures / Via

    "They are great, funny, crazy, fun, sci-fi action movies. They are perfect for when you want to watch a mindless, entertaining spectacle. They also contain good music and special effects."


    4. Grease 2

    Paramount Pictures / Via

    "I know it's blasphemy, but I like it even more than the original. First of all, Michelle Pfeiffer is a badass. Second, Maxwell Caulfield is a babe. Third, the song 'Reproduction' is a damn bop!"


    "I think it’s one of the greatest cinematic masterpieces of all time!"


    5. Batman Forever

    Warner Bros. / Via

    "Please stop hating on this movie. It's silly and over-the-top at times, but Joel Schumacher was going for the more colorful and 'lighter' side of the comics."


    6. Tusk

    A24 / Via

    "I absolutely adore Tusk. It's bizarre and nonsensical and made me belly laugh, but also managed to creep me out! If you're willing to roll with its batshittery, I'm gonna propose that Tusk has its rewards."


    7. Cloud Atlas

    Warner Bros. Pictures / Via

    "Cloud Atlas is a masterpiece with wonderful characters, great acting and music, and a very interesting storyline. It's seriously underestimated, people hate it without reason. "


    "Just a stunning movie in my book."


    8. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

    20th Century Fox / Via

    "I know it had shitty reviews and was literally the reason Sean Connery retired (seriously, this came out in 2003 and he hasn't been in anything since), but I think it's a fun movie."


    "How many steampunk movies exist? An untapped genre, I tell ya!"


    9. Baywatch

    Paramount Pictures / Via

    "I loved the new Baywatch movie. Everyone said it was a flop but I laughed, loved it, and would definitely be up for a sequel!"


    10. Howard the Duck

    Universal Pictures / Via

    "My favorite movie is Howard the Duck and I'm damn proud of it! Yes, I know the movie nearly cost George Lucas the ability to build Skywalker Ranch, but I still love it."


    11. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

    Warner Bros. Pictures / Via

    "King Arthur was supposedly one of the worst movies of this year. I disagree. It got way more hate than it deserved. Truly sad. I loved Guy’s fast-paced, action-packed storytelling. It was truly a masterpiece."


    "It was my favorite summer action movie of 2017. The soundtrack is also amazing."


    12. Paul Blart: Mall Cop

    Columbia Pictures / Via

    "I love the Paul Blart movies, especially the second one. There's something about them that makes me want to watch again."


    13. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

    Paramount Pictures / Via

    "The Michael Bay-produced Ninja Turtles! Especially the second one! My sister and I really love them."


    14. Batman and Robin

    Warner Bros. / Via

    "I will never be ashamed to admit I love Batman and Robin. Uma Thurman introduced me to Poison Ivy whom I have been a fan of ever since. She made that movie amazing."


    "I love how corny and extra it is. The things that most people hate about it make me laugh the most."


    "George Clooney is the best Batman, even better than Bale. It’s so good, even Arnold’s very punny Mr. Freeze is awesome!"


    15. Xanadu

    Universal Pictures / Via

    "Greek mythology and roller disco starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly... amazing!"


    16. The Star Wars prequels

    Lucasfilm / Via

    "The Phantom Menace just so happens to be my favorite Star Wars movie. They get hated on a lot because of the 'constant' use of CGI and lack of practical effects, but I think they're great."


    "In my opinion, they gave Darth Vader a great backstory that explains why he's the way he is in the original three."


    "I shamelessly love the prequels. While I agree Jar Jar is an insufferably bad character, I can't help but love the relationships between Anakin, Padmé, and Obi-Wan."


    17. Jupiter Ascending

    Warner Bros. Picture / Via

    "It’s my go-to movie for a night in by myself. I know a lot of people hate it, but it’s the perfect mix of cheesy romance, sci-fi, and action-adventure."


    18. Super Mario Bros.

    Buena Vista Pictures Distribution / Via

    "It got such bad reviews and Bob Hoskins repeatedly said it was the worst thing he ever did, but I loved it so much growing up."


    19. Crossroads

    Paramount Pictures / Via

    "It stars Britney Spears (!!!) and has some other cool actors. I've watched it way too many times already."


    20. Grown Ups

    Columbia Pictures / Via

    "That movie will always be funny to me. I watched it a lot when I was younger, so there's nostalgia attached to it. It has some crude humor, but it never really crosses into an uncomfortable or gross territory."


    "I laughed my way through both!"


    21. Spider-Man 3

    Columbia Pictures / Via

    "Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man trilogy is good (yes, even the third one)."


    "I honestly didn't hate Spider-Man 3, the emo Peter Parker scene cracks me up."


    "Tobey Maguire was perfection."


    22. Alvin and the Chipmunks

    20th Century Fox / Via

    "I genuinely think that Alvin and the Chipmunks is a good movie to watch at Christmas time. It’s not Christmas without it."


    23. Daredevil

    20th Century Fox / Via

    "Daredevil with Ben Affleck is a movie I saw in theaters twice! I loved it. I thought he really captured a great character. I loved the religious dilemmas and his chemistry with Jennifer Garner."


    "There may have been cheesy parts, but Michael Clarke Duncan was a solid Kingpin and the action scenes were tolerable."


    24. Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

    Universal Pictures / Via

    "Easily one of my favorites of the franchise."


    "I think it's the least liked, but I loved it!"


    25. The Happening

    20th Century Fox / Via

    "The concept of the movie is genius, it is very suspenseful, and has a great twist. Completely underrated."


    26. Waterworld

    Universal Pictures / Via

    "I love the idea of an opposite apocalypse, with all the water and not deserts. I love Dennis Hopper. I constantly quote this movie. It’s so misunderstood, and I don’t care!"


    "Waterworld is a great movie."


    27. Twilight

    Summit Entertainment / Via

    "It’s one of the most iconic franchises ever!"


    "Twilight was, and still is, a masterpiece. Don’t be hating on beautiful people."


    28. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    Warner Bros. / Via

    "I dig Jesse Eisenberg's portrayal of Lex Luthor. Luthor is usually depicted as a suave and smooth villain, but he brings eccentricities to the table and it works."


    "Keaton was a fantastic Bruce Wayne, but a bad Batman. Bale was a terrible Bruce Wayne, but an outstanding Batman. But Affleck was really great at both."
