Films that had potential but ended up sucking

^^^

List items

  • Lizard as the villain, Gwen Stacy as the love interest, putting more effort into Peter's parents = BRILLIANT IDEAS! But through a horrible script, horrendous acting, unoriginality, and just plain laziness, it ended up sucking.

  • There was good casting (for the most part), a good plot, and the great idea of building up to Sinestro. What went wrong? I don't know. But it could of been much better.

  • The instant I heard about this movie, I did nothing but look everywhere for it (I was too stupid to remember the internet). The idea of a Daredevil movie is just epic. It could easily be as good as the Batman films (with the obvious exception of The Dark Knight Rises)if not batter. But through poor acting choices, trying to jam too much into one film, and just a poor script, it failed. Hopefully they get you right in the reboot Daredevil.

  • Never been a huge Ghost Rider fan, but the character still has extreme potential for an amazing movie. But Nicholas Cage as Ghost Rider? EPIC FAIL!!!

  • Why did they have to ruin Dr. Doom like that!?!

  • The only thing that makes this film semi-watchable is Michael Fassbender as Magneto. Other than that, they take what could of been a great film and made it... this debacle. Let's hope it's erased following Days of Future Past.

Good list. I agree with all of them apart from X-Men: First Class

X-men First Class and the Amazing Spider-man didn't suck the Blade movies and Punisher War Zone did, oh you forgot Spider-man 3 it had potential but it became the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull of Comic Book movies and the Attack of the Clones of Marvel Movies

@scottyhawkeye: I haven't seen any of the Blade movies and though War Zone was overall good (had a lot of flaws though, but it was overall good).

And I loved Spider-Man 3. Was my favorite movie until Thor came out in 2011. Though I find it the best of the Spider-Man movies.

@thecannon: Spider-man 3 is the worst Spider-man movie ever, it had sin of being a 3rd movie here only 4 good 3rd movies (TF Dark of the Moon, SW Return of the Jedi, IJ the Last Crusade, and TDKR) other than that 3rd movies suck

@scottyhawkeye: The Amazing Spider-Man was terrible in every way compared to 3 (except love interest. I admit I loved Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy). And you're kind of underrating third movies. X-Men The Last Stand and Back to the Future Part III to name some.

It's missing Iron Man 2. Way too much drama in that one.

@logy5000: I actually liked IM2, despite it being a major letdown after the first and the worst of the MCU. Still decent though.

@thecannon: I liked it when I saw it in theaters, but I felt like they should've just had Tony beat whiplash without War Machine.

@logy5000: I'd agree with that. I found the entire Whiplash battle anti-climatic.

I actually loved Daredevil and Amazing Spider-Man was doomed from it's inception. And where the hell is Spider-Man 3 or Batman & Robin?

Hey Attack of the Clones was a GREAT movie. Comparing tht to Crystal Skull and Spider-Man 3 is disgustingly insulting.

@spideyivydaredevilfan26: I loved Daredevil when I first saw it, but I just began to hate it the more I watched it.

I personally like Spider-Man 3, which is why it's not on here. It's not a popular opinion but it's my opinion.

Batman & Robin was the next Batman movie after Batman Forever (which was awful), and with Schumacher staying director, it didn't have any potential from the beginning. Casting George Clooney as Batman and Arnold (however I spell his name) as Mr. Freeze removed what little potential it had left.

Truth be told, the only reason I said B&R because Bane and Ivy were in it haha. :)

@spideyivydaredevilfan26: Attack Of The Clones is terrible so what if it's not as bad as The Phantom Menace (worst Sci-Fi movie ever) I compered Spider-man 3 to Indiana Jones 4 (Indiana Jones wasn't meant to be Sci-fi) because IJ4 is the third worst Sci-Fi and SM3 is the 3rd worst comic book movie, SWII 2nd worst Sci-fi & SM3 second worst Marvel

Worst sci-fi movie ever? Explain to me how it is worse than Battlefield Earth, The Hunger Games, I Am Number Four, Jurassic Park III or the Transformers movies? It's not. The problem with Phantom Menace isn't that it's dumb, or badly written or badly acted. It's just...BORING! (Also, Jar Jar and Maul were lame) But that hardly makes it worse than the other ones I mentioned, which ARE dumb, badly written and badly acted. As for Episode II, it was a really smart, emotional, well acted film with great characters and development, interesting villains, and great themes about fear, trust and letting go. IMO, the 3rd best Star Wars film behind Empire and Revenge.

The Transformers movies and the Hunger Games are good movies. All Three movies in the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy are bad they are the complete opposite of The Dark Knight Trilogy by the best Star Wars is Return Of The Jedi though A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back are good ROTJ knocks it out of the park but it's no match for Star Trek Into Darkness (best Sci-fi ever). The Phantom Menace turn something that wasn't meant to be childish into something that is and Jar Jar Binks (worst character ever)

I stopped reading when you said that Transformers and Hunger Games were better than Revenge of the Sith and Attack of the Clones. I am pretty tolerant of other people's opinions but that is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard in my life. Stop being a rabid fanboy and wake up.

Because they are horribly acted, because they have no brain, because they don't shut up, because they put a joke about masturbation in a Transformers movie, because there is no effort. That enough?

@spideyivydaredevilfan26: ok so what Sam Witwicky is some what annoying doesn't mean the acting of the Robots was bad

Megan Fox was terrible, and the parents were annoying, and the college roommates were annoying and the government f*ck up was annoying and oh god my head hurts. :(

Well, in order to make a great monster movie (And YES I consider Transformers a monster movie) you really have to connect and love the human characters. There MUST be emotional attachment and care, we have to really pull for these guys. This is one of the reasons I consider The Wolfman (2010) one of the best movies ever, because it creates characters like the ones I described. Transformers, quite frankly, does NOT do this. AT ALL. And that is one of the many reasons it was a gigantic failure of cinema.
