A word of mouth recommendation for a film is worth ten critic reviews to most moviegoers. Based on that principle, Cinemascore was born and Hollywood has listened closely ever since. The entertainment market research company surveys moviegoers at major movie releases every opening night. Their polls condense movie related ratings and demographic information into a single distinctive CinemaScore grade measuring a movies' appeal among theater audiences.

A "F" from Cinemascore movie audiences is a rare occurrence and indicates a movie strongly disappointed its core audience. A "F" score is a literal "kiss of death" for a movie, virtually guaranteeing a short theatrical run and limited box office, by scaring off potential patrons once word leaks about the movie. Since 1999, only about twenty films have received the bottom mark which averages out to just over one movies per year. Cinemascore F Rated Movie List

I wonder hum much peolple's expectations factor into their score? An all-star cast and Robert Altman directing. A "F" score seems a bit harsh, granted it wasn't anything special either.

Richard Gere Richard Gere ... Dr. T
Helen Hunt Helen Hunt ... Bree
Farrah Fawcett Farrah Fawcett ... Kate
Laura Dern Laura Dern ... Peggy
Shelley Long Shelley Long ... Carolyn
Tara Reid Tara Reid ... Connie
Kate Hudson Kate Hudson ... Dee Dee

No 2018 movie earned a rare "F" Cinemascore, hopefully 2019 will be a repeat.

I have to go with Mother!.

I admire the film's technical aspects. It was extremely well done, with stellar performances, and I still consider Aronofsky among the best of the new generation of moviemakers. But I have rarely, if ever, had such an unpleasant experience when watching a film.

I had the unfortunate task of translating it to my native language, and at one point I actually considered giving up and telling my network "please give this to someone else" although I was halfway done already, I was indeed ready to let my work go to waste.

"Disturbing" and "annoying" are not even close to how much this film bothered me. And no, I'm not squeamish, I grew up knee-deep in splatter and all kinds of horror stuff. No, this was something else. A terrible, beyond terrible experience that I would never want to go through again. That's why I keep postponing writing an imdb review: I don't want to remember anything about it.

In this case I'm not the one who heard negative things about the film, I'm the one spreading them, I guess.

I was left scratching my head on Mother! too. I wouldn't have gone so far, as to give it a "F". I did think it was MISSED OPPORTUNITY with that much talent available to make a movie that both great and enjoyable to watch.
