Some films have such cool names that you just know the film will be absolutely awesome. Then you find out more about it and they've come up with some totally retarded concept or director or actors and it turns into a stinking mess.

This thread is a tribute to those missed opportunities.

I'll start with:

Monster's Ball

"Mon curé chez les Thailandaises"
(my local priest and the Thai girls)

"Children of the Corn" there really hasn't been a better film title since.

Oh, and Mandroid, although that was an awesome film.

Liquid Sky.

I was so bored I wanted to claw my eyes out.


Oh and pick most if not all of Andy Warhol's 'films'. I say this as someone who foolishly has sat through 'Chelsea Girls' twice.

I agree.

Lazarus and the Gimp

"Anatomy of hell".

Great title. Dull and rather nasty film.

28-07-2006, 13:25:54
"Johnny Mnemonic".

Awful.

I'd rather nominate A.I

Oh, the winner has to be:

"The incredible melting man"

Get Carter (the remake)


It reminds you of the original because of the name, then you watch Sylvester Baboon in it and you come to contemplate the futility of life and what an easeful blessing a quick and painless death can be.


Similar to Planet of the Apes (remake), The Vanishing (remake) with Jeff Bridges, Psycho (the remake) and so forth.

Catwoman

Not what I thought it would be about at all.

Any movie with Haley Barry getting nekking can't be that bad, can it?

Venom
31-07-2006, 16:23:29
When she's getting naked with Billy Bob Thorton it's bad.

"Yeah"

The great thing about Escape from LA was that it was the exact same movie as Escape from NY.
