One thing in general that screws up RT scores for HDTGM movies is reviewers giving them scores for being so bad they're good. The Room, for instance, has at least one of these on it's main RT page alone.


This seems especially true for movies that are ONLY watched for their glorious badness, so there is a self-selected audience more likely to enjoy it for being a bad movie. Miami Connection seems like the most obvious example here.

You're right... not crazy enough or notoriously bad at all....

I swear, I don’t remember a specific moment from that movie, just that certain things happened. I think Spider-Man 3 was saved from being notoriously bad by being notoriously forgettable. Nothing seemed to work, and it did it in such a perfect balance that it wasn’t bad ENOUGH in any particular direction. It was no Batman & Robin when it came to franchise killers!

Yeah, another thing that comes to mind is how they couldn't do a "Second Opinions" segment for Gymkata because Paul couldn't find a single five-star Amazon review of it from someone that didn't love it unironically.
