Good movies are adored by many, but even bad movies can shine in the right context.

Some movies are just so bad they're somehow good, especially if you're watching with friends.

I love movies and cinema and basically everything Hollywood.

This time of year is always so much fun. We're gearing up to the Oscars. And the best films of the year are being announced.

But I have to say, sometimes I wonder... who is making this 'best of' list?

I have lost track of the films I've watched that have been lauded as genius that I wish I could get the hours of my life back for watching.

Talk about the power of hype.

Redditor hootyowlscissors wanted to talk about the films that are not much without the hype. They asked:

"What is the most massively overrated film of all time and why?"

You know, I'll just be real for a sec: I hate annoying kids in movies. They drive me crazy.

I am reminded, first and foremost, of Marriage Story, which received a bunch of nominations for awards a couple of seasons ago. It wasn't even Noah Baumbach's best, by the way, despite being lauded as his most personal, fully realized project.

A big factor that brought the film down: The annoying damn kid. The kid that appeared to have been spawned by Satan himself and is probably single-handedly responsible for the breakup of the marriage depicted in the film, though no one in the film bothers to admit it.

If there's an annoying kid, I rarely suffer through the film. What makes it worse is that these kids never act like humans, because screenwriters either make kids really brilliant prodigies with the vocabulary of some top scientist or egregiously infantile. There is no in between.

But there's much more than annoying kids that can ruin a movie. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor lawyeratyourservice asked the online community,

"What ruins a movie instantly?"

There's something about seeing a scary movie when you're a kid that is just not the same when you're an adult. I adore The Shining but please, someone explain to me... why did I think it was a good idea to sit through that at the age of eight or nine?

Before you say anything, it was late at night and it was on television. Just the sound of the music as the car went up the mountain sent trembles of anxiety coursing through my body.

Still one of my favorite movies to this day, by the way. But I still can't get that image of the old lady in the bath out of my mind.

People told us all about the films that scared the bejesus out of them after Redditor Tmorris22 asked the online community,

"What movie traumatized you as a kid?"

It's a great day when you see an actor in a role that seems as if it was tailor-made for them.

While the Disney film 101 Dalmatians is an animated classic at this point, there is no doubt that the decision to cast Glenn Close in the live-action remake was the right one. She embodies every inch of that character. Even if you don't like Disney flicks, there's no doubt that the film is a showcase for her stunning acting.

Speaking of Glenn Close... we might want to just run down the list of her most acclaimed roles, because she was pretty much perfectly cast in all of them. Looking at you, Fatal Attraction and Dangerous Liaisons.
