it has a 49% on Rotten Tomatoes, citing the movie has too many tonal changes and too gorey. Which I don't get because Slither was gorier than Super, and that was critically acclaimed (80 something on there); and with the Tonal Changes, they weren't surprising because the movie told you in the first few minutes it was going to change tones a bit.This is an unpopular opinion?
Clerks 2 is better than the original. By a lot.
-Quentin Tarantino peaked with Kill Bill. It's the sweet spot between the self-indulgent violence of Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction and the masturbatory quasi-historical revenge porn he's been doing of late. I think the difference is that he was genuinely in love with the inspiration and less worried about showing off how clever/woke he was.
-I can't bring myself to dislike Michael Bay. He's a consummate hack, but he's a professional about it, so getting mad at his movies is like getting mad at paperback romances they sell in the airport.
-Uwe Boll's Rampage is a great movie. Brendan Fletcher is underrated as an actor.
- Tarantino is criminally overrated but I can see that point, although I agree with most people when they say Pulp Fiction is his best.
- I don't hate Michael Bay at all, on a technical level, his movies are fantastic. And I unironically enjoy The Rock, both Bad Boys movies, parts of Armageddon, 13 hours, and Pain and Gain (which is my personal favorite MB movie, I've seen it at least 7 or 8 times now.)
- Rampage was universally acknowledged as a decent movie, so I don't see how that's an unpopular opinion; but Fletcher is a criminally underrated actor. On the subject of Uwe Boll, cut out about 20-30 minutes, Postal would be a decent movie.
