How do we know that a movie is destined to be considered a flop? Is it a film that has absolutely the most horrible reviews ever? Or is it based solely on box office success or failure? What if it is horribly reviewed and bombs at the box office, but finds a new lease on life at midnight screenings or on DVD?
Yahoo News has released their list of the TOP TEN BIGGEST MOVIE FLOPS OF THE DECADE. As they have so nicely pointed out in the article, all such lists are subjective at best. That being said – here are the films that made Yahoo’s list of biggest losers:
- THE ADVENTURES OF PLUTO NASH
- BATTLEFIELD EARTH
- LAND OF THE LOST
- TOWN & COUNTRY
- THE INVASION
- THE SPIRIT
Web Watch can only claim having seen 5 films on this list (and of those, only able to rewatch a portion of one on subsequent cable airings). We’ll leave it as an exercise for Web Watch readers to identify which ones made our cut list and which ones we were lucky enough to avoid seeing altogether.
