Top 10 Bad Movies by Good Directors


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Happy Feet Two - George Miller
22 The Ladykillers - The Coen Brothers

Directors of:
Fargo, No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski, Raising Arizona, True Grit

I really enjoy the work of Joel and Ethan Coen. Their work consists of hilarious black comedies to intense, violent thrillers, but this movie seemed like a step backwards for me. Sure, Tom Hanks is funny in it, but the writing doesn't compare well to the other masterpieces the two brothers are known for. The result is just a half-hearted effort from the greatest directorial duo ever. The Dude definitely doesn't abide. - phillysports

23 A Good Year - Ridley Scott

Good year? More like BAD MOVIE HAHAAHAH - Jackamalio

Director of:
Alien, Blade Runner, The Martian, Gladiator, Thelma & Louise

Why is Ridley Scott directing a sappy romantic comedy? We all know that his strength is taking us to fantastic new worlds with his inventive mind and spirit so why do something as dumbed-down as this? I don't know and I don't care. The result is just a cringey and snore-inducing movie that I'm questioning the reason for existing. - phillysports

24 Transformers - Michael Bay

I agree with visitor. This movie is good. Michael Bay has one or two average movies. - zxm

The only decent live-action Transformers movie - PeeledBanana

I think that this movie was what killed many people's childhood... using a mini gun. - Basementcritic

25 The Dilemma - Ron Howard
26 Beowulf - Robert Zemeckis
27 Vampire in Brooklyn - Wes Craven

Director of:
A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, The People Under the Stairs, Scream 2, The Hills Have Eyes

The late great Wes Craven will go down as one of the greatest horror directors of all time, creating truly terrifying motion pictures despite the fact that he always wanted to do romances. I'm not making that up, seriously check it out. However, this was just a botched attempt at a horror comedy with an off performance by comedic legend Eddie Murphy. - phillysports

28 Cars 2 - John Lasseter
29 Captain America: Civil War- The Russos

Whats wrong with you! This movie was Epic! This and the Jungle book should not be here!

31 The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Marc Webb
32 Australia - Baz Luhrmann
33 Pixels - Chris Columbus
