Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I think this is going to call for mostly supposition and conjecture. I believe if there was any definitivce answer to this, you would have probably found the answers already. –  wbogacz Nov 4 '13 at 14:07
but where is the weak points of this movie? I think acting is good, script is good, interesting story.. –  user6633 Nov 4 '13 at 14:10

1 Answer 1

The thing about art, of any form, is that there are no objective standards. Many people read novels that are considered "classics" and get absolutely nothing from them. Others read "trash" and find personally relevant meaning.

Taste in art is not that different from taste in food in that most people tend to like the same things. Chocolate, for example, is almost universally loved - but there are still people who don't like it. People who love chocolate don't understand how someone could not like it, and vice versa.

Take for example, the Twilight books and movies. I loved the books, but didn't care for the movies. Take a poll, and you'll probably find ever possible combination: hated both, loved both, only liked the books, and only liked the movies.

Who is right? Everybody! Each person looks at art through the filter of their own tastes and experiences.

Twilight film is terrible, i don't like, but this "Bucky" movie receives 6 Raspberry Awards does not make any sense, there r many movies that are much worst than it. Ex: Fast and Furious 6 is terrible & why they got 60% on critics –  user6633 Nov 4 '13 at 15:07
While generally true (and as definite an answer as one can expect for this question, I guess), this reasoning makes the Golden Raspberry Awards (as well as any other awards on arts) downright nonsensical. –  Tom Cody Nov 4 '13 at 15:07
I like "All About Steve" comedy of Sandra Bullock, it's very funny. Today sometimes when sleeping I still remember it, but why it received lots of "Worst": Worst Picture, Worst Director (Phil Traill), Worst Actress (Sandra Bullock), Worst Screenplay (Kim Barker), and Worst Screen Couple (Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper).wiki I can't stop laughing while watching it –  user6633 Nov 4 '13 at 15:11
@ChristianRau I wouldn't say that they're non-sensical - any more than the Academy Awards are. I'm just saying that they're the opinion of one group of people and do not necessarily represent anyone else's opinion and certainly there is no harm or shame in disagreeing with them. –  Donald.McLean Nov 4 '13 at 15:50
@user6633 You ought to organise your own awards for worst films. Then we will be able to attract other anonymous users on the Internet to this site to complain about the unfairness of your selections. Then, we will advise them to set up their own awards as well. Ad nauseam :) –  coleopterist Nov 4 '13 at 17:01
