    Inspired by the Movies thread!!!

    So which 2004 movie is gonna tank the worst? Will Catwoman fail to land on all fours? Will Walking Tall take it in the kneecaps? Will the retrofitted-as-a-comedy Starsky and Hutch get busted?

    Throw out up to six picks each - let's see if we can get 32 movies...

    The List

    1. [*]Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London*[*]Anaconda 2: The Black Orchid[*]The A-Team[*]Barbershop 2: Back in Buisness[*]Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason[*]Catwoman[*]The Crow: Wicked Prayer*[*]Deuce Bigalow: Electric Gigolo*[*]Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights
      [*]Exorcist: The Beginning
      [*]Garfield
      [*]Hellboy[*]House of 1000 Corpses 2[*]The Mask 2*
      [*]Meet the Fockers[*]Pitch Black 2: The Chronicles of Riddick[*]The Punisher[*]The Ring 2[*]Rocky VI[*]Sahara[*]Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed*[*]Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow[*]Seriously Dude, Where's My Car?[*]Soul Plane[*]Starsky and Hutch[*]13 Going on 30[*]Thunderbirds[*]Van Helsing[*]The Whole Ten Yards*

    Interesting idea Steve. I’ll have to think about this, as I share the view that ‘no one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public’. [​IMG]

    Are we talking financial flops or artistic flops, or both?!

    Anyway, my best guesses, which ought to meet criteria for either type of flop:

    Sahara
    Soul Plane
    13 Going on 30
    Win a Date with Tad Hamilton
    Thunderbirds (no puppets! what gives?)
    The Punisher

    Well, I don't think you can mention "art" in relation to the films we'll be voting on... [​IMG]

    I don't understand what we're voting on... what movie we think we would hate the most?

    I'll add Hellboy. Never read the comic, but the trailer looks like shit.

    Mission Impossible 3 is due in 2005.

    If the second installment is anything like the first of House of 1000 Corpses the film deserves to be pissed on, burnt then buried, never to be shown to the public.

    I went ahead and finished the list so we could get started.

    Up first, we the sequels to a couple of decent, if forgettable comedies. I think both of these will sink fast, especially TWTY. Feel free to throw out your like comments!


    Round 1 - Bracket 1

    Meet the Fockers

    vs.

    The Whole Ten Yards

    Abstain.

    I think that neither will flop; in fact, I think Fockers will be a respectable hit.
