Top 6: Unfairly Maligned Films

Sometimes a movie hits society at the wrong time or in the wrong way and inspires a tide of negativity that isn't deserved. We all have different ideas about what movie was underrated or over-attacked, of course, and that makes this an especially subjective topic for Episode 48's Top 6 segment. But we each came up with six movies that we feel are, in whole or in part, unfairly attacked.

For the most part, we tried to be more concrete with our lists than in our Controversial Take segments. We didn't just want to come up with any old random movie we like that everybody else hates. We wanted to come up with movies that have accrued very specific unfair criticisms. In a sense, we're talking more about the criticisms than the movies. Of course, that line is blurry, and we crossed it here and there.

What do you think everybody else is dead wrong about?

As always, we recommend listening to the episode before reading further.
