    So which decade had more bad cbms? The 2000s or the 2010s?

    I'm hoping the 2020s would have fewer bad cbms but we already got one in Bloodshot. And a potential 2nd/3rd with The New Mutants and Morbius in the future.

    I haven't seen many of those but yeah I think the 2000s had more eXpecially when it comes to Marvel movies.

    I eXpect the 2020s to have fewer as Sony is the only studio that could potentially give us movies that could compete with the other classics like Dark PhoeniX, Elektra, Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance, Fant4stic and Punisher War Zone. The New Mutants was filmed and written way back in the 2010s, and only became a 2020 film because Disney kept delaying it. Marvel Studios, I would be surprised if they finally give us an absolute disaster of a film but the quality control of Kevin Feige is something I haven't seen from other franchises/studios that with 23 films released under their belt, theyhave yet to get a rotten rating from the critics.

    Okay, I'm going through your list
    1. The Crow: Salvation (2000) :barf: as someone who loved the first Crow movie the sequels make me want to cry, the TV series with Mark Dacascos wasn't bad though
    2. G-Men From Hell (2000) :barf:
    3. From Hell (2001) :barf:
    4. Josie and the Pussycats (2001):barf:
    5. Monkeybone (2001):barf::barf::barf::barf::barf:
    6. Men in Black 2 (2002) :barf:
    7. Bulletproof Monk (2003) , actually just kind of dumb IMO.
    8. Daredevil (2003), not great but not as bad as many people make it out to be.
    9. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) Okay, if you never read the comics its :barf:, but if you have read the comics then its :barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf:
    10. Alien vs Predator (2004), yeah just kind of a dumb B movie
    11. Blade: Trinity (2004): okay, I found this film hilarious because of Ryan Reynolds' banter and Snipes' ridiculous OTT acting, and Jessica Biel is both hot and badass in it. So I realise it's not a good movie but I give it a :applaud
    12. The Crow: Wicked Prayer (2005):barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf::barf:

    1. Elektra (2005), okay, only a little but :barf:
    2. Fantastic Four (2005) honestly, and I'm in the minority here, this is way before the MCU, so I think this movie deserves some credit for getting both Human Torch and the Thing absolutely perfect, but Dr Doom was :barf:, so overall I give this film a :applaud

    1. Son of Mask (2005) :barf::barf::barf:
    2. 30 Days of Night (2007) :hmm
    3. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) As above , I liked these films, remember this is still pretty Iron Man, and Dr Doom was slightly better, the Thing and Torch were still great, the Surer was perfect, oh wait Galactus was:barf:, but it still gets a :applaud.
    4. Ghost Rider (2007), Another film that I liked, mostly because I love Nicolad Cage and his CRAZY OTT stuff.
    5. TMNT (2007)....ugh:barf:, the 1990 film was way better
    6. Punisher War Zone (2008) :barf:
    7. The Spirit (2008) Okay I've never read the comics, but this might be the worst film I've seen :barf::barf::barf::barf::barf:
    8. :barf::barf::barf:
    9. Whiteout (2009).....haven't seen it !
    1. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), okay, I saw this on tv the other week - its not a particularly good film, but far from the worst - and Hugh Jackman is always good as Wolverine.
    I think the 2010s will be remembered for such colossal disappointments as Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad , Justice League, Fantastic4, Amazing Spider Man 2 and Hellboy.

    But these will always be overshadowed by the large number of highly successful and well received MCU films ( and justly so) and Wonder Woman.

    Hope you are keeping well.

    The ones in bold are ones I enjoy watching. In the case of the Spirit though I've only seen it one time.
    Daredevil is a bad movie, the Director's Cut is a significant improvement, but the theatrical cut is bad enough to be ranked among that decade's bad movies.


    All is well on this side, thank you good sir.
    Hope all is well on your side as well, and everyone else. :yay:

    I haven't seen the director's cut of Daredevil - and I'm suspicious of so-called director's cuts, because the Donner cut of Superman 2 sucks ! :barf:

    I might check it out when I get a chance, the worst thing about that movie was Colin Farrell as Bullseye - so if the directors cut makes him less awful then that's a good thing.

    Cheers. We're in pretty good shape down here- our lockdown might end next week as our number of daily new cases is pretty small. I've been working from home, and while I'm a bit nervous about going back while Covid 19 is still out there, I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Hope things are going well on your side of the planet.

    Elektra and the Fantastic Four movies are my guilty pleasures. I also enjoyed the 1st Ghost Rider movie!

    And lets not forget the Razzie winning movie that is Catwoman. Now thats a real guilty pleasure of mine!

    Is there a guilty pleasure thread(s) - probably would need one for different genres ( cbm, science fiction, drama, comedy etc) .
    It's late now, but maybe I'll start one tomorrow.
    Not really a cbm per se, but Speed Racer is a guilty pleasure of mine. As far as cbms go, I probably have quite a few guilty pleasure films ( yes Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance and Hulk, I'm looking at you).

    Cheers. Stay safe.

    Bullseye is charming and fun, not Ledger nor Nicholson Joker, but he's fun to have. But he didn't improve in the Director's Cut, still the same thing.

    Significant improvements to the Director's Cut:
    • Matt doesn't meet Elektra in the street in a most superflous scene before that scene where she follows him for a rematch.
    • Matt doesn't ignore screams for help in favor of having sex with Elektra.
    • Things are less rushed, but nothing takes too long.
    • There is a reason for cops to come after Kingpin, although it's not a great reason all things considered.
    I enjoyed Coolio's scenes in this version, but they might make you cringe if you find Bullseye hard to enjoy. And the subplot that was removed from the theatrical version could have benefited from some rewrites.
    Aside from the title and the mask it's not a comic book movie, that's the only reason I did not include it.

    Coolio was the worst part of that movie and single-handedly made the director's cut 1000 times worse than the theatrical one.

    I never understood everyone's obsession with the cops having tracked Kingpin down off-screen, anyway. The entire plot revolves around the threat of him being exposed, including major news stories talking all about his existence, if not his specific identity. So the cops investigated and found something, wow, what a shocking 'unexplained' development.

    Just wanted to comment: If you'd read The Spirit comics, you probably would've even doubled up the vomiting guys here :D. Apart from simply being bad, the movie really craps on Will Eisner's original material. The lowest point in SLJ's caréer?

    Coolio's scenes are short and few, not enough to damage the movie.

    As for police capturing Kingpin, he was a myth followed by Ben Urich, and cops didn't take him seriously.
    I remember when @C. Lee said the same thing, and how great it is to have that 1987 movie written by the writer of Die Hard.

    Yeah, the '87 TV movie THE SPIRIT starring Sam Jones (Flash Gordon) and Nana Visitor (Major Kira from StarTrek: DS9).....it's low budget TV movie, but it is a Spirit story put to film. The characters look and act right. It even manages to put Ebony in it without being offensive. I have a copy from where I taped it from it's original airing, but it can be bought from WB on it's videos made on demand service.

    Interesting. I was completely unaware there actually was a The Spirit movie before the 2008 abomination. Pre-internet a TV movie like this would of course been totally unknown over here.

    Reading The Spirit stories as a special feature in early 80s The Phantom comic book/magazine here in Scandinavia, I instantly became a fan of this 40s noir/cartoonish style as a 14-15 yo. Fantastic art by Eisner, and great stories totally got me.

    Now I need to investigate about this movie. Sam Jones as The Spirit, would love to see that! And yeah, Ebony back then was a character that wouldn't fare well in modern times (like some of the old Tintin books by Hergé, and many other comics back then). Nice to hear they managed to still keep him but in a modern manner.

    Thanks for the info and cool pics. I'll investigate about this TV-flick.

    To me, the biggest thing about the Spirit TV movie is.....after seeing the multi million dollar full of big name stars theatrical version that was a total piece of crap....you will really appreciate what the TV version did with so little.

    Hope this helps some The Spirit (MOD)

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. :)

    Make your list of bad CBMs you hated from 2010-2019 please.

    Aquaman is far from the worst of the films discussed in this thread, but it is definitely bad. The acting, FX and story are all very much the level of quality I expect from an overdone video game cut-scene, and that's probably being generous. It belongs on the list.

    To update my least favorite movies of last decade from most hated to least hated:
    I, Frankenstein: Who thought this was a good idea while writing it or directing it or anything? Nothing makes sense, characters are frustrating, motives of good winged idiots are confused when it comes to Frankie, and it's so dreary and grimy and boring.

    I'd recommend watching Van Helsing instead, cause as dumb and crappy that movie is, at least there is a sense of fun and some cool action to look at.


    Batman V Superman: It was almost my hated one. The theatrical release has some atrocious editing, but it at least removed some of the pointless scenes that serve no purpose. I don't get how many say the Ultimate Edition is an improvement in anything other than editing, the movie is worse for having more pointless scenes that do nothing and a plot point that is just superfluous from the get go. It sucks that the movie you dreamed to have since you were a child makes some of your favorite characters unbearable maniacs, and majority of their supporting characters and foes are insane and dumb.

    Batman's theme makes me think someone wants to commit suicide.


    Hellboy (2019): There is a video that expresses why this movie is bad on so many levels, it expresses it much better than I probably can. The movie makes no sense, most of the crap is not fun kind of garbage, and characters are uninteresting.



    Dark Phoenix: Boring nonsensical crap that contradicts with some of the plots that came before it.


    Green Lantern: Boring crap about one of the most creative weapon and some fun characters. Kilowog is dull in this movie, there is no excuse to why the best Green Lantern ever is uninteresting.


    Ghost in the Shell: Source material is boring, live action movie is just as boring. It also have blandly implemented revelations.


    Fullmetal Alchemist: It didn't bore me, but none of the stuff is anywhere near as the quality of source material, or even the 2003 anime. Squeeze massive plots into two hours movie and make some pointless changes that don't add anything to


    Thor: The Dark World: Boring mediocrity.



    Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance: Stupid and boring most of the times, but there are a few hilarious moments that are fun to bring up for conversations.


    Suicide Squad: Some dumb nonsense with some entertainment values.


    Justice League: Aged worse on second viewing, but there is some fun to be had with it, more than with Suicide Squad.

    I dont know how I forgot it before...but this has to be the most worse comic book movie of all!

    Dragon Ball: Evolution

    That movie is just betraying everything about what Toriyama Akira-sensei has done. Even Toriyama-sensei himself in interview has said that this is not Dragon Ball he envisioned when he made the story. The remastered Dragon Ball Kai series and the new Dragon Ball Super series is the response for this nightmare movie.

    I believe that Dragon Ball is one of few title that can not be translated into live action properly.
    I say, Let the tale be forever lived in manga and anime and also in the heart of its fans.


    EDIT Note: I did not realized that this is only for 2010-2019 period before I write it. I am really sorry for the mistake! #embarrassing
