    Here were some of the best and funniest:

    1. "Moana is the best Disney film. Period."


    2. "Galaxy Quest is the best Star Trek film."

    DreamWorks Pictures

    3. "I think the Star Wars sequels are good, and are, in my opinion, better than the prequels."


    "There. I said it."


    4. "Y’all, Revenge of the Sith is my FAVORITE Star Wars movie. Easily. By a landslide. Hayden Christensen got so much sh*t, and for what?"


    "It’s such a good movie."


    5. "Batman & Robin is the most underrated and undeservedly hated film of the franchise."

    Warner Bros.

    "It's brilliantly campy and fun."


    6. "I don’t like all of M. Night Shyamalan’s movies, but people seem to universally hate Lady in the Water (which I found to be a really lovely and sweet movie) and The Village (which I loved!)."

    Warner Bros.

    7. "Drop Dead Gorgeous is film genius!"

    New Line Cinema

    8. "Frick, man, foreign movies with subtitles are where all the good content is, and if you refuse to watch a movie because you need to read the subtitles, you're missing out on A LOT!"

    CJ Entertainment

    9. "OK, I honestly find the live-action Cat in the Hat movie hilarious."

    Universal Pictures

    10. "Frozen 2 is better than the first movie."


    11. "Into the Spider-Verse is better than most live-action superhero films."

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    12. "I liked Russell Crowe as Javert!"

    Universal Pictures

    13. "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is an incredible fever dream of a sci-fi movie."

    EuropaCorp Distribution

    "It gets way too much hate!"


    14. "Donnie Darko is my favorite film of all time and brings me so much comfort in times of stress."

    Pandora Cinema

    "It’s almost my safe place, film wise."


    15. "Kevin Costner’s Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is the perfect ratio of fantasy epic/campy fun."

    Warner Bros.

    16. "The Phantom of the Opera movie is actually a pretty good movie."

    Warner Bros.

    "It is a beautiful and visually stunning movie to watch."


    17. "The Princess and the Frog is a seriously underrated movie that doesn’t get the love it deserves."


    18. "Maybe this is just the bisexual in me, but IDK why people dislike the new Charlie's Angels so much."

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    "It's fun, action packed, filled with pretty people in pretty places. Is that not what summer romps are made for?"


    19. "Armageddon is a fantastic movie. It seems to have become a movie people love to hate, and I don't know why. It has everything I want in a movie: action, comedy, a love story —and a great Aerosmith song to boot."

    Buena Vista Pictures

    "Who cares if it's not scientifically accurate and a bit campy."


    20. "Jesse Eisenberg played a FANTASTIC Lex Luthor."

    Warner Bros.

    21. "Hot take: Horror movies were better in black and white and with the blood and gore kept to the viewers' imagination..."

    Film Arts Guild

    22. "I love the movie Watchmen."

    Warner Bros.

    "I don’t know why people hate on that movie so much."


    23. "I love Ben Affleck's Batman; he was the perfect older version of Bruce Wayne!"

    Warner Bros.

    24. "I liked the new Ghostbusters movie and thought it was really funny."

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    25. "The Matthew Broderick Godzilla movie is really entertaining and fun."

    TriStar Pictures

    26. "Out of all the Shrek movies, Shrek the Third is superior!"

    DreamWorks Animation

    27. "I enjoyed the Cats movie."

    Universal Pictures

    "It was as weird and wonky as the stage play."


    28. "The Aladdin remake got so much hate, and I don’t see why. It has great costume design and production value, and the songs were fantastic (especially the new songs, like 'Speechless')."


    "Also, expanding on Jasmine and making her a self-confident and competent woman (not a damsel in distress) was so necessary and awesome!"


    29. "It’s perfectly OK to legitimately enjoy a movie that wasn’t critically acclaimed. Kind of sick and tired of 'cinema sins culture,' where it feels like a move has to be 110% perfect before it’s OK to enjoy."

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    "Give me your plot holes, your bad acting, your poorly written script; I’ll like a movie in spite of its flaws."
