This superb satire became the standard against which all mockumentaries are evaluated. The film was so successful that the fictitious group reunited for a series of live concerts and a TV special, further blurring the line between real and reel. - Emanuel Levy

To this

I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it. - Roger Ebert

Every once in a rare while a film comes along that works in all departments, with story, production and performance so well blended that the end effect is one of nearly complete satisfaction. Such is The Manchurian Candidate. - Variety

To this

The most exciting characters are killed off too early, and what we're left with is a Satan's "Seasme Street." - Brandon Judell
Average listal rating (1768 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 0

The film has an unapologetically adolescent purity about it that transcends what would ordinarily be the shortcomings of its script. - John Hartl

To this

The new Alice is casually absurd, off-handed in its violence, and doggedly on message. The movie is not just three-dimensional but blatantly programmatic. - J. Hoberman
Average listal rating (734 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 0

It is, all in all, hard to think of a place or an age group that would not respond to the enthusiastic inventiveness with which Lucas has enshrined his early loves. - Charles Champlin

To this

Man: 'You're so beautiful.' Woman: 'It's only because I'm so in love.' Man: 'No, it's because I'm so in love with you.' Me: 'Man oh man.' - Rick Groen

"Clerks is so utterly authentic that its heroes have never heard of their generation." - Roger Ebert

To this

"This pitiful excuse for entertainment is utterly bereft of wit, intelligence or craft on any level. The only thing left to screw up would have been to leave the lens cap on the camera. Wait, that would have been an improvement." - Peter Howell

"It's a rarity for a movie to be willing to try your patience like The Sixth Sense does and even more of one for your perseverance to be so amply rewarded." - Mark Caro

To this

"All that's missing is the head alien of Plan 9 From Outer Space dropping by to lecture the populace for disrespecting nature: 'Your stupid minds! Stupid! Stupid!'" - David Edelstein
Went from this

"A wondrous, moodily self-involved piece of work that employs X-Files magic realism to galvanize what might have been a routine tale of suburban teen angst." - J. Hoberman

To this

"Have you ever actually tried watching paint dry? A sloth walk? Grass grow? You can have all the thrills with none of the chills courtesy of The Box, the painfully sluggish new sci-fi morality play from Donnie Darko creator Richard Kelly." - Betsy Sharkey
Average listal rating (54 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0
Went from this

"While it can't hope to achieve its grand ambitions, it's smart, it has some sharp dialogue, and the surrealism-on-a-shoestring visuals are undeniably striking." - Ian Berriman

To this

"Far from being a roaring, sinewy beast with a lot of bite that the title might suggest, John Boorman's latest has more in common with a lumbering white elephant." - Amber Wilkinson

A list of directors who seriously fucked up.
