Let’s hear from Charlie first!
In my I refuse to state precisely how many years of life, I’ve seen some real rubbish, some of which I have consigned straight away to the part of my brain marked, “destroy immediately”. Some films are so bad, of course, that they become wonderful entertainment (“Plan 9 from Outer Space” springs to mind) but for the purposes of this piece, I’ll confine myself to the toe-curling and cringe worthy.
First I’d like to give a (dis)honourable mention to “Fantastic Four”, Ioan Gruffudd version. Rarely have I been so underwhelmed by an experience as when I saw that film in the cinema; the standard of acting was at Infant school nativity play level, the script was naff and even the special effects couldn’t rescue it. FF, however, shines like “Lawrence of Arabia” when compared to the top of my hit (with a hammer) list…
Channing Tatum looking and sounding like no Roman legionary ever looked or sounded, botched version of the original book, chock full of anachronisms, actors chewing the scenery left right and centre. Even Jamie Bell couldn’t save it. Luckily I watched it on DVD, because if I’d paid good money to see it I’d not have been best pleased. Indeed, if I had a choice between seeing it again and sticking a fork in my eye, the fork would win, hands down.
