MY World OF Flops
My survey of books, television shows, musical releases, or other forms of entertainment that were financial flops, critical failures, or lack a substantial cult following
The Airport series came to a hilarious end with The Concorde…Airport ‘79, a disaster movie that’s primarily about the intensely homoerotic relationship between sexy pilot Alain Delon and fuck monster George Kennedy.
The Fanatic, Fred Durst-directed John Travolta stalker drama that has been the talk of the bad movie world for months is somehow even more astonishingly terrible than it looks, and it looks almost inconceivably bad.
John Travolta month continues with an exploration of one of the many terrible films he’s released this year, The Poison Rose, a Southern-fried Chinatown for Dummies that casts Travolta’s cliched PI as a young whippersnapper with a thick mane of chestnut hair who gets mixed up in a mystery involving sinister powerbroker Morgan Freeman and a Peter Lorre-like creepy doctor played by an unrecognizable Brendan Fraser
If ever there was a movie meant for My World of Flops, and not public consumption, it’s the notorious 2017 flop The Book of Henry
Beloved superstar Jeremy Renner thought it would be a good idea to have his own app. The universe strongly disagreed.
John Travolta month kicks off (again) with an appalled look back at his long-shelved Cold War comedy The Experts, which made comedic sport out of the backwards cluelessness of those dumb Russians, who will never, ever, ever, ever, ever possibly get one over on the American people.
In the weird mid aughts Disney and Devo joined forces to create Devo 2.0, which was just like Devo, but for kids! Astonishingly, it was not a big success.
How bad could a Terry Jones-co-written-and-directed science fiction comedy starring Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale, all of the surviving members of Monty Python and Robin Williams (in his final film) possibly be? Pretty goddamn awful, it turns out.
Trucks. Monsters. Monster trucks. What's not to love?
If you miss Obama and also want to see an Obama figure fire a rocket launcher while doing donuts on the White House lawn then boy do I have a movie for you!
