The Jackie hatred on here just doesn't let up. If I ever get around to seeing Black Panther I reckon I'll enjoy it.

I definitely don't hate Black Panther, and I think it's great how much it connected with an underrepresented audience. 5/10 for me, very standard Marvel fare with notably shit cg fight scenes. I only mentioned it cos I thought most of the rest of the list was pretty spot on. Same with The Lost City of Z - actually could have been really good but Charlie Hunnam is just a terrible actor. Extremely handsome though.

Wasn't aware that Jackie hatred was common here but I do think it's really shit. And I was so excited for it too, what with the great trailer and Mica Levi score. Just found it so empty and boring - up there with Drive at the top of my critically acclaimed films I actively hate list.

Lots of Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy love here and I very much agree.

Christine came out in the 80s. Duh! And it is a bit cheesy. I mean, a killer car? As if!

There is nothing more more timely or more evergreen than a big red car on fire running over Jerk Fonzie.

I definitely don't hate Black Panther

I'll happily stick my hand up and say (again) that I hated it - terrible acting, ropey script, mostly dodgy CGI (even compared with dodgy CGI in general), and SO right-on and knowing it feels badly dated already.

Having said that, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 hovers at the very top - and by a BIG margin - of my list of recent abominable major blockbuster films.  It's a bun fight between that and Last Jedi.
