The 55 worst movies made by iconic directors — from Spielberg to Scorsese

hook  worst movies

Most of the greatest film directors in history have swung and missed on occasion.

Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg, and numerous other critically acclaimed directors have directed at least one movie that critics tore apart.

For this list, we chose 55 directors who have largely been praised by critics as masters of their craft, and we turned to the reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes to find out which of the films they’ve directed was the most critically panned.

We excluded a number of great directors who did not have a film in their catalog with a critic score under 70%. (Stanley Kubrick, for instance, is not on this list, as his “worst” film, “Eyes Wide Shut,” has a 74% “Fresh” rating on the site.)

Here are the 55 worst movies made by iconic directors, ordered from the (relative) best to worst, according to their critic scores:

Alejandro G. Iñárritu — “Biutiful” (2010)

Critic score: 65%

What critics said: “It’s the kind of film that congratulates the viewer on her tolerance for the spectacle of unrelieved misery.” — Slate

Guillermo del Toro — “Blade II” (2002)

Critic score: 57%

What critics said: “The only dread it inspires is in the possibility that its director prefers turning human flesh into CGI-enhanced mush over exploring genuinely frightening material.” — The Village Voice

Sergio Leone — “The Colossus of Rhodes” (1961)

Critic score: 57%

What critics said: “This ludicrous costume epic complete with hambone acting is interesting to film buffs because it is an early work by the king of the spaghetti Westerns, director Sergio Leone.” — TV Guide

Khloe Kardashian addresses Tristan Thompson’s alleged cheating amid reports of their impending engagement

tristan thompson khloe kardashian

Khloe Kardashian recently slammed a report that she and Tristan Thompson are talking about marriage, writing, “Who makes up this crap you guys post??”
She then replied to a commenter on Instagram who wrote that she is “acting like Tristan didn’t cheat.”
“I’m not acting as if Tristan didn’t cheat,” she wrote. “I’m saying the story about marriage and anyone insinuating that they know what we speak about privately is ‘crap.'”

Khloe Kardashian recently shut down a report that she and Tristan Thompson are planning an engagement. And in doing so, she directly addressed the allegations that True’s father cheated on her.

The new mom replied to a commenter on Instagram who accused her of “acting like Tristan didn’t cheat.”

“I’m not acting as if Tristan didn’t cheat,” Kardashian wrote. “I’m saying the story about marriage and anyone insinuating that they know what we speak about privately is ‘crap.’ Not upset by commenters. Not upset by anything. Only pointing out when blogs create stories for you all to believe when it’s just simply untrue.”

While this is not an explicit confirmation of the allegations, it’s the most direct statement from Kardashian herself since photos and videos surfaced in April of Thompson apparently kissing other women. In the months since, the couple has apparently returned to romance as usual.

While the couple may be going strong, Kardashian called reports of an impending marriage “crap” and “ridiculous.”

“Who makes up this crap you guys post?? This is how slow the news is? You need this ridiculous story?? What a waste,” she commented beneath an Instagram post from blogger Perez Hilton. “If you must write such crap please stop tagging me at least!”

Watch Snap share in real-time here.

Snap shares slid 4% Wednesday, down for a sixth straight session, to a record low of $10.07 apiece as the tech sector came under pressure while social-media execs testified before Congress.

The selling came despite Snap introducing two new styles of itd Spectacles camera glasses on Wednesday. The new styles look more like standard sunglasses, less obvious that they have built-in cameras — and will sell at $200, $70 more than its original Spectacles.

Snap’s stock has been under pressure since last month, when the company reported earnings that beat on the top and bottom lines but said its number of daily active users fell 2% compared to the first quarter to 188 million. Wall Street analysts were expecting that number to increase to 193 million.

That headwind followed similar calamity from its social-media peers Facebook and Twitter, which also saw their user bases drop as debate escalates over censorship and the spread of misinformation.

Social-media names are in the crosshairs on Wednesday as Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey testifying Wednesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee about their company’s response to Russian interference during the 2016 election.

Shares of Twitter sank more than 5% and Facebook dropped 2%.

Dorsey is scheduled to appear before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Thursday.

Snap shares are down 30% this year.
