    Are they all possible?

    Are they all possible?

    It never (stops-ends-finishes-ceases) to amaze me how many films are (considered-panned) by the critics as a load of rubbish.

    The normal expression is, 'it never ceases to amaze me'.
    If the film is panned, 'as a load of rubbish' is redundant.

    It never ceases to amaze me what some people will do for money.

    Does this sentence mean "I'm always amazed at what some people will do for money"?

    so I could say: it's considered by critics as a load of rubbish OR SIMPLY it's panned by critics....
    They mean the same thing, don't they?
