Movies that deserve a spot in the Rotten Tomatoes zero per cent club
August 4, 2017

IF YOU’RE a movie maker, the most offensive thing that can happen to your film is if it joins the Zero Per Cent Club.
Currently there are only a few hundred members in the club and entry is only gained when a movie receives not one single positive review from film critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
Basically, if a movie ends up on the list, it’s best to avoid it at all costs.
Here are the movies that well and truly deserve their spot in Rotten Tomatoes’ Zero Per Cent Club:

...(only posting London Fields review)

How did it all go wrong for this movie? It boasts an impressive cast including Johnny Depp, Billy Bob Thornton and Cara Delevingne, but not one critic could find something nice to say about it.
In London Fields, Amber Heard plays a clairvoyant who has a premonition of her death and then starts a love affair with three different men, one of whom she knows will kill her.
Here’s what some critics had to say:
“Whatever director Matthew Cullen and writer Roberta Hanley have cooked up with this screen adaptation, it’s nothing if not a debauched hodgepodge for the senses that dares you to abandon it at almost every turn.” — The Playlist
“Most scenes lack pace, are performed badly and are accompanied by a running commentary of action we can see for ourselves. It’s car-crash filmmaking.” — Independent

According to earlier articles, this thing had one press screening that was attended by about "15 industry insiders" (are critics considered industry insiders?) before being pulled from TIFF's 2015 line up... which means anyone who reviewed the film would have had to be one of those 15 at that single screening. I'm not that interested in critic "opinions", but I fully believe the producer's version of the film is as terrible as they say, and in either case I don't need to see Amber Heard's "soft porn writhings". If this movie ever does come out in some form, I'll watch it out of interest for Johnny's work, but with a grain of salt, as they say... (If the film really was a catalyst in the breakup of Johnny's marriage, maybe it was a blessing in disguise...)
"I feel I am good sitting on a beach with a breeze going by, the waves hitting the beach."
"I've got a lot of Barbies in storage..."
"The Mad Hatter is the Mad Hatter. What am I going to do, play him like Lee Majors?"
