The Moneytrain derails.

August 14th, 2004 · No Comments · Movies

In the hopes that AvP miraculously became a good movie over the past day, I stopped by Rotten Tomatoes to eyeball some reviews. Sadly, sporting a depressing 13% score with most of the major players having reported in, it seems unlikely that it’s anything short of a disaster.

But it COULD be worse. It COULD be Yu Gi Oh: The Movie. With a nearly unheard of ZERO PERCENT rating (even Battlefield Earth scored a comparatively respectable 4%), this film is truly a waterhed moment in marketing and movie history. Some notable reviews:

- “I took one for the team this week … If your kid is a Yu-Gi-Oh fan, then God help you.”

- “Yu-Gi ouch! Rare is the movie experience as painful as it is here.”

- “The film is simply part of a synergized income stream, more deft revenge upon us for having won World War II.”

So, whatever horribly mediocre film you wind up seeing in the near future, take comfort in the fact that it could be much, much worse.
