Q of the day
What are some of the worst films you’ve seen with A-list actors?
Clearly one recent one has to be The Forgotten, with Julianne Moore, Gary Sinise and Alfre Woodard. OMG, this was a piece of sh*t. There was some serious, probably intentional, deceptive marketing for this movie. She was really slumming in this crappy flick. The first third of it was a psychodrama (which is what the previews suggested) where Moore’s character is told that their child never existed, then her husband, and so on. It quickly devolved into a low-rent X-Files episode with people getting sucked into the sky by aliens.
I normally find Oliver Stone films interesting, but I nearly walked out of Natural Born Killers.
Probably near the top of the all-time list of offensively bad films is Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Jar Jar Binks. Need I say more? Actually, yes. I didn’t need to see the resurrection of Stepin Fetchit as an alien. And can you believe George Lucas cast the unfortunately untalented child actor Jake Lloyd as Anakin Skywalker, passing over Haley Joel Osment?
