I've always had a love affair with movies. Ever since I was three years old and my mom took me to see The Empire Strikes Back, I was hooked. I even have the 60k in student loan debt for film school to prove it. My friends say I'm a bit a film snob. I'm not one of those people that watch only indies and foreign films, because the percentage of suckitude is about the same as Hollywood movies. It doesn't matter if you have wicked special effects or lots of scenes of people smoking and drinking coffee, without a good story and good actors the movie is going to suck. Sometimes, however, even great actors can't save a truly terrible film. All actors make a stinker or two in their day, but what if it's the last film they make? Here is a list of 5 great actors whose last films sucked.
Orson Welles in Transformers: The Movie
I know, I know, we all love the Transformers movie. I love it too. I totally cried when (spoiler alert) Optimus Prime died. But looking back it wasn't really a good movie. The plot was cheesy and the dialogue was terrible. The producers scored a real coup when they got the great Orson Welles to do the voice of the robot planet chomping monster Unicron. Welles was one of the greatest actors and directors of all time. His film Citizen Kane is still considered the greatest film ever made. Why did he choose to do a movie about robots that turn into cars? Who knows? Also asking a guy as fat as him to play a planet is really mean.
