Epic Fail: The Worst Flops of All Time
October 18, 2010
There have been some real flops in cinema history! Who can forget when Gigli completely bombed at the box office, or the total train wreck that is Howard the Duck? I asked substitute library clerk Diane Creed what is the worst movie that she has ever seen? Kiss of a Spider Woman she said, "It was just horrible. I tried to watch it twice and it sucked!". What makes a film a flop? She said, "Bad dialog, bad casting, and a horrible storyline; the script is important, and editing is very critical. Also, if it’s low budget, it’ll probably be bad." So, poor planning is the key to a big stinker. I think another reason movies fail at the box office is a general misjudging of the public's mood. No, not another zombie movie! Oak Grove Branch was polled, and our top three Epic Fails are, Ishtar, Howard the Duck, and Night of the Living Dead.
