The Worst ‘Monster Trucks’ Reviews: Critics Are Raving!
Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s newest series, Critics Are Raving!, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews. Real critics. Real quotes. Really bad movies. That’s what’s Critics Are Raving! is all about.
On our eighth episode: Monsters in trucks! They’re monster trucks, you see! This is a can’t-miss idea! Only a marketing genius could have created this thing! And by “marketing genius” I mean “actual four-year-old.” In fairness, Monster Trucks isn’t the worst reviewed movie featured on Critics Are Raving! — but it’s not exactly lighting up Rotten Tomatoes either. And there were plenty of choice pull quotes to choose from to make this Critics Are Raving! trailer.
