So for the longest time I've known that films that generally receive great reviews from the critics about portraying emotions and other such nonsense are generally films I shall dislike. So in a bid to find some new films that portray nothing but are just fun to watch I'm starting this thread.

Please include a youtube video with the trailer of whatever film you're recommending

Here are examples of what I consider relevant to this thread.

Super Mario Bros.

Wat.

That oddness aside, I agree that films can just be fun, however I disagree with you. There's a different between entertaining and bad.

Let me explain, There Will Be Blood. An excellent film which as you so eloquently put it, portrays emotions and such nonsense. Critically acclaimed, award winning and what not. 92 on Metacritic.

This is not a fun film. It is however, excellent.

Now let's look at a fun film. How about Iron Man? Who doesn't love Iron Man.

Iron Man is damned entertaining and fun as all hell. It is also very good. Well written, acted and directed. Also very well regarded critically and was well reviewed. 79 on Metacritic.

See, entertaining and fun aren't the same as bad. I don't get behind the argument that bad movies are fun to watch. The Room, for example, is just a bad movie.

But judging from your post, this is exactly the kind of thing you're looking for. So here, go watch The Room.
