The opinions of professional movie critics don't always match up with popular opinion. But without critics, we'd be lost. Who would have seen "Moonlight" if we didn't have critics to champion it at film festivals? And wouldn't gems like "Margaret" be lost without film critics to protect them?

Metacritic, a database that aggregates movie reviews, exclusively gave INSIDER a list of which movies - released since the year 2000 and with more than 20 reviews - have received much better critical reviews compared to audience reviews. Critical acclaim is calculated through their Metascore, which takes into account how enthusiastically critics like or hate a movie, and the audience score is based on how users rated it on their site.

Some of the movies are beloved by critics but left audiences cold, and others divided critics but were derided by regular moviegoers. You'll notice some trends. Horror movies, for example, got more ambivalent reviews from critics in general. And a surprising number of reviewers embraced the concert film "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never." And just as with our list of 50 movies that critics really hate but normal people love, you'll see a lot of movies that you've completely forgotten about, but may be worth checking out.

Here are 25 movies that critics love but normal moviegoers hate.
