In honor of the Oscars, it’s Cinema Week at The House of Geekery! All movies, all the time.
Let’s start with ten terrible movies that totally destroyed your hopes!
I was looking forward to most of those, and most of them let me down. In truth, though, it’s hard to argue with their #1 pick.
I had hopes for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crappy Sequel, hopes that were brutally dashed in record time. But my hopes had been tempered by a previous betrayal, by another George Lucas opus that seared my soul and taught me to never trust again.
Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
That movie was bad. It was ghastly. It was so legendarily awful that merely bad movies must bow before its truly epic terribleness.
In fact, it can be argued that Phantom Menace what made me the bitter, cynical cinemagoer I am today. THANKS GEORGE LUCAS FOR SCARRING ME FOR LIFE!
