News: When bad movies happen to good actors and such

I never thought I’d say this, but that “Beautiful Creatures” movie about the lovey-dovey teenage witches actually inspired something interesting.
                I mean, it only has a passing connection to the movie, but hey, take what you can get.
      ’s John Clyde was writing about how awful “Beautiful Creatures” looks and how it’s getting mostly negative reviews. Nothing groundbreaking, but he happened to notice how awesome its supporting cast is, featuring talent such as Jeremy Irons, Emma Thompson and Viola Davis.
                That bought up the interesting part: a list of good actors in horrible movies.
                Clyde’s list includes: George Clooney in “Batman and Robin,” Christophe Waltz in “The Green Hornet” and Al Pacino in “Jack and Jill,” though honestly Pacino’s resume lately is far from sparkling these days.
                Check out the rest of Clyde’s list here.
                My own ideas? Hmm… Johnny Depp in “Private Resort,” and more recently “The Libertine.” Dustin Hoffman in “Little Fockers,” Ben Kingsley in “BloodyRayne.”
                It’s an interesting topic and certainly one worth discussing, especially considering bad movie news has sorta dried up lately. So feel free, talk amongst yourselves.
