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
Sam Raimi’s famously disastrous third Spider-Man movie, featuring Tobey McGuire as a disco-dancing Emo web-slinger and a bleached blonde Eddie Haskell Venom is a goddamn mess but also surprisingly entertaining and weird, particularly in this era of cookie-cutter superhero sequels.
I finally tackle one of the biggest all-time flops, Peter Hyams’ disastrous, almost impressively inept 2005 adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s A Sound of Thunder starring a woefully miscast Edward Burns as a Big Deal Scientist and Ben Kingsley as a capitalist anti-Christ with a thick mane of snow-white hair.
Our obsessive coverage of the failed films of Matthew McConaughey continues with a look at Sahara, a 2005 mega-bomb that pitted crazed pulp novelist and world-class egotist Clive Cussler against his producers. With bonus information involving co-star William H. Macy’s horny collegiate van and non-existent boomerang collection!
In his SECOND big Florida-set flop of 2019, Matthew McConaughey is the world’s greatest, unlikeliest poet in Harmony Korine’s wonderfully fucked up, spectacularly silly stoner comedy The Beach Bum.
The X-Men movies ended not with a bang but with a wheezing flatulent noise in the form of Dark Phoenix
You know Holmes & Watson, that Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly Sherlock Holmes movie from last year that was suppose to be real bad? Hoo boy! What a stinkeroo!
Holy shit, you guys. This fucking movie… Where to begin?
In hindsight, Burt Reynolds probably should have done Terms of Endearment instead of a rancid comedy that required him to wear a chicken suit for many, many scenes.
Did 9/11 sink Emeril Lagasse’s sitcom or did it fail because it was literally the worst idea ever? Read and find out!
Oscar winners Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway get sleazy, sordid and trippy in a notorious Florida-set flop with a twist worthy of frightmaster M. Night Shyamalan himself.
