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
Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University made a part-narrative/part documentary film about how Jesus chose Trump to be president that’s pretty fucked up.
Before Captain Marvel and Black Widow there was Helen Slater as Supergirl. Alas.
Beloved, much-mourned comedian Brody Stevens’ recent suicide makes Enjoy It!, a show about his battle with mental illness, even harder to watch. But it’s worth it.
In what astonishingly only counts as his SECOND biggest flop of 2018, John Travolta played a real-life crime figure once again in Speed Kills, a movie that doubles as an astonishingly unsuccessful experiment in virtual reality
Is John Travolta’s Gotti as terrible as everyone says it? Yes. Yes it is.
The hyper-violent, sex-obsessed Spike TV Adult Party Cartoon incarnation of Ren & Stimpy was less a fun, raunchy reboot than a crime against humanity.
Walter Hill made a very bad movie about a bad man who gets unwanted gender reassignment surgery by a revenge-crazed cosmetic surgeon. It did not go well.
I read every last goddamn word of notorious right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos’ self-published manifesto, DANGEROUS AND his wonderfully aghast, dry-witted editor’s notes so you don’t have to. You’re welcome.
The horror, the horror!
