I like disaster flicks, which rarely rate very highly with critics

2012 - I probably watch it a few times a year. (39%)
The Day After Tomorrow - maybe a bit less frequently than 2012. (44%)
Knowing - End of the World, Cool sfx, Nic Cage, baby! (33%)

I’m surprised San Andreas got 50%. It doesn’t totally suck but it’s not in the pantheon of disaster flicks either IMO

Everyone has already mentioned the movies I like (Constantine would tops that list for me). I have no idea how any of my liked movies are rated on rotten tomatoes because the few times I've checked reviews there, I came away with the impression that folks have forgotten the #1 purpose of any movie (from the consumer perspective) Entertainment, and that a the folks posting reviews, negative or positive, go to movies with the intent to analyze every bit of the movie. There are very few truly bad movies.

I was going to add Amazing Spider-Man 2 to this thread (yes I legitimately like that movie. So much so it made me like the prior one more in retrospect) but to my surprise it was just barely over 50% on RT.
