What is the most JUST movie ever made?
It has to be a movie that was a complete shitshow during production, AND it has to have been a box office bomb, AND it has to have ruined at least one person's career.
I nominate pic related.
Yeah Cimino could do literally whatever he wanted after Deer Hunter and he released this piece of shit
It has a fantastic cast too, what a shame. Brad Dourif and Sam Waterston help any movie.
Watch the Director's Cut, you pleb. It's a masterpiece and many critics have taken back what they've said about the movie after seeing it.
The correct answer to OP's question is Cutthroat Island. Everyone involved with that turd has never recovered.
Has anyone else seen Heaven's Gate? I've heard varying things about it. Some people think it's a bloated piece of shit, but some people think it's pretty good and people only thought it was bad because of bad press and issues with recutting. I've been meaning to watch it at some point, but don't really want to waste 3 hours on something that might be a big piece of shit.
Speaking of movies ruined by cuts, All the Pretty Horses is worth a mention in this thread.
It wasn't a disaster during production, but studio meddling and the resulting massive butthurt basically ruined what was probably a masterpiece. When Billy Bob Thornton originally edited the movie, it was around three hours long, and the studio got nervous about it flopping. So, the decided to cut more than an hour out of the movie and market it as an epic romance movie. Billy Bob was so butthurt, he didn't do any promotion, and still refuses to talk about releasing a director's cut. Matt Damon, who played the lead has said that the original cut was the best movie he's ever seen, and what happened to the final version made him lose faith in the studio system for a while. Daniel Lanois was so mad that the studio scrapped his original soundtrack for the movie, he refuses to do anything with it, or with movies in general.
The Island of Dr. Moreau
>After being fired by the studio, original director Richard Stanley was rumored to have prevailed upon the makeup crew to turn him into one of the background mutants, so that he could at least keep tabs on the making of his dream project. He supposedly did not unmask himself until the wrap party.
>Val Kilmer frustrated director John Frankenheimer so much, that, after shooting Kilmer's last scene in the movie, Frankenheimer is alleged to have said: "Cut. Now get that bastard off my set."
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
>Is it a play on the just fuck my shit up?
Whose career did that ruin?
Funny how it's gained slight notoriety now, no one has ever heard of the show it's based on (which is pretty good by the way).
I don't get it. It's called the avengers but I know it has fuck all to do with Marvel and The Avengers was an old TV show.. but then they have Uma looking exactly like Black Widow.
>but then they have Uma looking exactly like Black Widow.
Please kill me. I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
>Black Widow the comic character was inspired by the old TV show of Umas character in this movie version? Ffs just tell me please
I don't fucking know. I doubt it as the avengers predates marvel. Do you honestly think Black Widow is the first woman in a catsuit?
The character Emma Peel was famous for her skin-tight catsuit before Black Widow ever existed. So to say "she is dressed like Black Widow" is inaccurate. Though it is more accurate to say that both Emma Peel and Black widow are dressed like Catwoman (whom also wears a skin-tight suit). I'll go out on a limb and say that the term Catsuit even came about from some iteration of Catwoman.
Waterworld actually did well in theaters, but just wasn't enough to gain back all the money spent to make it. It didn't even destroy Costner's career either. That was The Postman.
I seriously can't believe people are still posting this years later...
