And sometimes people come at certain movies with pitchforks and torches (especially critics) when the movies really don't deserve it! So, when Reddit user u/SirAren posed the question, "Which movies do you think aren't nearly as bad as people say?" to the r/movies community, I took note. Here are some of the top-voted responses that, I don't know, maybe you'll find controversial:

2.Van Helsing (2004)
3.Reign of Fire (2002)
