#8
Adjusted Score: 87788%
Critics Consensus: Zack Snyder's Justice League lives up to its title with a sprawling cut that expands to fit the director's vision -- and should satisfy the fans who willed it into existence.

Directed By: Zack Snyder

#9
#9
Adjusted Score: 79373%

Directed By: Guy Ritchie

#10
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Though the world of The Witcher at times feels only half-formed, Henry Cavill brings brawny charisma to a series teeming with subversive fantasy elements and dark humor.
Directed By: Alik Sakharov

#11
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Henry's sordid story is concluded in a truncated manner that nevertheless provides closure, although viewers may feel that the ruler's most interesting lovers and opponents had already lost their heads before this fourth and final season.

#12
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: While the second season of The Tudors is certainly as gorgeous as the first, both in its cinematography and its able, handsome cast, the unremarkable script reveals only minor improvements in storytelling.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Though it isn't the most complex or thought-provoking drama around, The Tudors contains stunning period detail, some sturdy acting, and just enough intrigue to make it an entertaining diversion.

Whatever Works (2009)

Justice League (2017)
39%

Directed By: Zack Snyder

#19
