Movies With Bad Reputations

While I was snooping on Twitter I noticed two people I follow were talking about the film The Brown Bunny. I immediately thought; "wasn't that the film where Chloe Sevigny actually blew some guy on screen?"

It is, in case you were wondering. That's a horrible way to remember a film, but it happens. Some movies just have bad reputations. This inspired me to throw together a quick list of movies that have bad reputations. (In my opinion, anyways)

**Possible Spoiler Alerts Will Follow**

The Brown Bunny
Reputation: As stated above, the movie where Chloe Sevigny actually blew some guy on screen.

Tideland
Reputation: The movie that was so bizarre that director Terry Gilliam actually had to explain himself on a DVD extra before the film starts.

Shortbus
Reputation: A porno with a plot.

Hounddog
Reputation: The Dakota Fanning Rape movie. (Even though said scene is about 20 seconds long and filmed in pitch black.)

The Wicker Man
Reputation: A remake that cannot be taken seriously because Nicolas Cage is ridiculous.

Avatar
Reputation: James Cameron's remake of Fern Gully. And Pocahontas. And Dances With Wolves.

Dead Man on Campus
Reputation: The "are you fucking kidding me" of college policies.

Incubus
Reputation: The movie with so many plot holes it was released direct to DOWNLOAD instead of direct to video.

Oliver Twist (2005 version)
Reputation: You let your kids be in a Roman Polanski movie? ( I know many will disagree with this one, but I've heard this joke enough to make my list)

The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)
Reputation: You think 3 people sewed ass to mouth is extreme? I raise you 9 more..

Juno
Reputation: Hipsters: The Movie.

What movies would you add here?

  5. 9 Songs. Margo Stilley and Kieran O’Brian have actual intercourse on this one. It’s more like porn than a movie.

  7. @Bernard. That is so funny, I almost added that to my list, but I felt like I was only naming movies with sex. That's a good one.

    @Candice, I like Juno too, but I can't deny it's very hipster-y

    @Asrap and Josh, so true. So, so, true! I should've thrown those in there.

  8. I think Antichrist has a bad reputation too, in this case rightfully so.

    Also there are certain films known only for a little bit that's in them - eg. Basic Instinct. I wonder if people actually remember plot of this one :)

  9. Nice funny post. I would say June was more the Comedy about Teen Pregnency, but a nice idea for a post
