There is a list of Criterion movies rated by imdb here:

Here are the films that are rated the worst. By personal experience, most films rated at or below 6/10 are pretty bad or at best boring.

Several of those are parts of B-movie box sets, so I would expect anyone getting those would know what they were in for.

I like several of the others. The Lure is the best Polish Cold War horror musical ever made. The Lady Snowblood movies are also good, if you enjoy the genre (samurai-era revenge tales). I also like Personal Shopper, but I can see where the average Kristen Stewart fan would be put off by the film's arthouse sensibilities.

I also own the discs of The BlobJabberwockyBeyond the Valley of the DollsPink FlamingosFiend Without a FaceSalo (120 Days of Sodom), and Equinox, and enjoy them all.

I like most of the ones on the list too. I just thought it was an interesting list. If you think about the size of the collection, that's not too many films that have a  mediocre to bad rating.  "Indiscretion of an American Wife" often plays in a cut version, and that may contribute to it having a lower rating.  Salo may very well be a good film, but I've heard of its subject matter and I don't think I'll ever give it a try for that reason. Same for Funny Games.
