Great Director's Worst Movies

- 1.)Steven Spielberg
- Ok most people would say that his worst movie is 1942 apparently. I really don't like the movie, but I think he's made one much worse than 1942. Hook is easily one of the most embarrasing adaptions of Peter Pan to the silver screen ever created. Robin Williams as Peter Pan??? This movie turns convientional wisdom about Peter Pan on its head and it fails miserably in making anything meaningful out of this mangled fairy tale.
- 2.)Francis Ford Coppola
- Though I don't like Dracula very much, I easily think that this great man made a huge mistake when he penned the last movie in the Godfather series. Though not a bad movie, it doesn't measure up at all to the first two movies, which are two of the best films ever made. The plot is so-so and all of the memorable characters from the first two movies are either dead or decided against returning to the movie. Also the nature of Michael changes to a good remorseful guy all the sudden, which is nothing less than bullshit. The original Don states in the first movie that he would never apologize to anyone for his actions, that he had done what he thought was right for his family and owned no explanations to any man that would question his motives. Michael is the same way in the first two movies, but then suddenly changes his ways in the last movie, which tarnishes this otherwise perfect saga.
- 3.)Stanley Kubrick
- Eyes Wide Shut. I wanted to shut my eyes halfway through this movie when I saw it at the theater. The acting is wooden, the story is nothing less than pornographic with an artistic stamp on it, and Kubrick demonstrates finally that the older he got and the more withdrawn he became from society the worse his movies became.
- 4.)George Lucas
- We have a three way tie here.
- Howard the Duck, The Phantom Menace, and Attack of the Clones are all garbage and I can't decide for the life of me which is the worst of the bunch.
- 5.)Martin Scorsese
- I'll have to go with Bringing Out the Dead. I'm not quite sure what he was thinking when he made this movie, but the only thing meaningful I got out of it was that New York is a cesspool and it doesn't pay to be an ambulance driver, not a good flick.
- David Fincher
- Alien III, if you've seen the movie you know what I'm getting at.
