I'd like this to be a list of mainstream films but, alas, I tend not to see very many mainstream films so I fear this list will be heavy (if not exclusively) genre flix. I'll try and stay away from remakes and sequels as much as possible because I believe there have been only 4 or 5 that have ever been worth seeing which means they'd ALL belong on my list! I'm also staying away from the easy targets like low budget films and the obvious choices like ISHTAR and GIGLI, mainly because I haven't seen them, but even if I had I wouldn't include them because everyone else does. it would just be wasting space for me to as well.
It even had a happy ending for Christ's sake! Somebody should have at least talked to somebody who knew someone else who was related to a guy who had read the Cliffs' Notes for the book before they decided to make this movie. Absolutely absurd.
Did someone anywhere actually think this was funny? I laughed once, at the very beginning when the U-boat came up under the girl doing the JAWS parody. God, what a painful experience watching this flick was. Spielberg fell down and went boom.
The undisputed king of Bad Movies in my opinion is Roland Emmerich and here he has managed to out do himself. At least in STARGATE he had a good idea and James Spader to take my mind off the pain. Here he has nothing but sneer worthy garbage.
Not only did the classic film from the 1970s NOT need to be remade, it definitely NOT need to be remade with Nic Cage in it. What happened to this film is simply inexcusable and everyone connected with it should be summarily executed.
