The Internet is a thing of beauty. It really is. While people would usually be chastised for having unfavorable reviews about an otherwise critically acclaimed movie, the Internet allows us to voice our most unpopular opinions honestly, and largely anonymously. That is the premise behind Author5's Reddit post, which adds people's negative IMDb critiques to the movie posters of otherwise lauded films.

The Godfather

IMDb Rating: 9.2/10

Okay, this is a great movie. One of the better movies in history. My dad would kill me for saying this, but the critiques aren't entirely wrong. That first one especially.


IMDb Rating: 8.2/10

This one hurts me because not only did I love [Nightcrawler](movie:938302), but I also have a personal attachment to Jake Gyllenhaal after I interviewed him earlier this year (shameless plug!). Even so, I can see how it wasn't the film for everyone. You definitely leave the theater feeling a little icky.

Forrest Gump

IMDb Rating: 8.8/10

I'm not saying I agree with the choice of wording here, but I have heard similar things from many of my friends. Like, how did all of these incredible things happen to this man? I can barely get myself out of bed in the morning without ruining everything. I guess that's the point, but it doesn't make it any more believable.

Stand By Me

IMDb Rating: 8.1/10

Tyrone Brown, you are a man of few, but important words. This is another classic, but if I were to pick one must-see scene, it'd be the ball leeches. Not because it's the best scene, but just because I'd never seen that before.

The Fault in Our Stars

IMDb Rating: 8.1/10

Yes, the book was better and I cried like a freakin' baby. I don't personally think that the film version of [The Fault In Our Stars](movie:602185) was anything to write home about, but it wasn't as bad as these viewers claim. Sadly for Sam-Victoria, they would have been a lot richer if they had made that same bet with the book. I swear that "Okay" was in every other line.


IMDb Rating: 8/10

I might get some flack for this, but I didn't like [Gravity](movie:41913). I think that a much more apt title would have been something along the lines of Dani's suggestion. Sandra, you're fab and I love you, but I feel like you're just better Earth-bound. That's just my opinion.

Since I have you all here, I'd like to know what some movies are that you dislike despite being considered a great film. I swear, this is a judgement-free zone! Unless you mention Back to the Future, because I'm just not trying to hear that right now.


Which of these honest movie posters did you agree with most?
