I thought this was interesting. A comparison of underrated/overrated movies according to critics' and fans' ratings and the difference between them.
It is no surprise that critics and viewers alike agree that The Godfather is the "best film" among the ~2600 films considered on Rotten Tomatoes, with a 100% score among professional reviewers and a 98% score from the audien...

It would be intriguing to hear theories on why the discrepancies exist

Nice article and compilation of some of Stanley Kubrick's favorite films. Click through to some of the other interviews/stories for more good reading.
Stanley Kubrick worked for almost half a century in the medium of film, making his first short documentary in 1951 and his last feature in 1999. He went to extraordinary lengths to avoid mediocrity in his work, in order that it might last and not fall into oblivion. With each project, his initial preoccupation involved trying to find the right story. Some arrived quickly – Terry Southern handed Kubrick a copy of Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orang...

In a victory for civil rights, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 against DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act. 

Justice Kennedy contributed this opinion in the verdict:

"The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity. By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than others."

Awesome, awesome stuff.

Justice Kennedy for the win on striking DOMA! But I am incredibly disappointed that J. Kennedy went the other way in joining JJ Roberts, Alito, Scalia, and Thomas in gutting part of the Voting Rights act.

What does the community think about this?

"Zach Braff is trying to raise money on Kickstarter to fund a movie he wants to make. Zach Braff is a good actor and a fine filmmaker. GARDEN STATE was a terrific movie. But I wouldn’t give him a dime. 

Why?

Because it defeats the whole purpose of Kickstarter."

I think he has a real point, but on the other hand, I have no qualms about an actor/director seeking funds to do something outside of the Hollywood system. He's right that Zach Braff could go to a studio and secure funding/distribution, but who's to say that he wouldn't have to give up final cut, or certain casting decisions, etc.

Crowdfunding has been revolutionary simply because the platform supports projects that might otherwise never have happened.

Celebrity crowdfunding campaigns are centered on people and properties that are already known. Through their previous exposure, proven fiscal returns, and legions of devoted fans these celebrity properties already have enough momentum to further develop.

But what about new personalities and properties, new creative endeavors? Projects that could speak to us with a new perspective and could only exist through the use of crowdfunding?

At best, celebrity crowdfunding campaigns draw attention to the rapidly growing movement. At worst, they wick money away from proper indie filmmakers, amateurs and unknown professionals at the cusp, who use the funding to create breakout projects and new intellectual properties.

Without this avenue of new creators, the trend of recycling people and properties would undoubtedly continue ad infinitum. The loss of the video store resulted in a consumer tailored experience of self-imposed parameters when seeking entrainment —

I can only hope celebrity crowdfunding doesn’t result in the same loss when making entertainment.

“At times brutally sad, yet surprisingly funny, and always completely honest, I wholeheartedly recommend existence. If you haven’t experienced it yet, then what are you waiting for? It is not to be missed.”
