When a movie is designated for a younger audience, it tends to split critics. Some are harsher, some are more forgiving, others just ignore it entirely. With a 32% critic rating, it’s hard to decide what happened here. Rookie of the Year targets a younger audience, sure, but it’s still plenty enjoyable for adults. Here’s the first installment of the Nostalgia Month on Anything Nice to Say.
Tom Cruise running away from aliens. You don’t need to make a movie more complicated than that. With a high critic score, but a relatively low audience score, viewers weren’t quite as enthused about this remake. We try to launch a full scale invasion on anything nice to say about War of the Worlds.
Sometimes, you have a movie that you just have expectations that are off the charts.

I try to learn to love it despite its flaws in this week’s Anything Nice to Say.
For years, the world had no idea that the founding of America wasn’t based on principles, but was actually just a bunch of dude’s burying treasure. In this Jerry Bruckheimer-produced movie, we run through real and apocryphal US history. What started out as a heist movie turned unto a treasure hunt.
Can we hunt down anything nice to say about National Treasure?

Is Vin Diesel a box office draw? He’s mostly known for popcorn movies, so it’s no surprise the critics didn’t like The Last Witch Hunter. We see if we can find anything nice to say about this D&D inspired passion project.
