Just coming off a weekend where another expensive movie didn’t live up to its financial expectations (Sorry, Conan), we’ve come across this wholly appropriate infographic. The 25 Most Expensive Bad Sci-Fi Movies Ever Made created by the Geek Twins shows in bar graph form how those movies rank on expensiveness and quality.
These are rated by the following criteria: Budget (or cost to make the movie) and the current score from the rating aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes.
Some movies didn’t get in because they didn’t fit the criteria. For example, the Ed Wood film Plan 9 from Outer Space is arguably horrible, but only cost $60,000. Spider-Man 3 was expensive at $240,000,000, but got a 67% meaning it wasn’t considered that bad.
Click the image of the infographic below to embiggen. Also, how is it most people don’t consider Spider-Man 3 to be terrible? What the fuck movie were you all watching? The weird emo-Peter Parker struttin’ down the street!? How does that not negate any possible “goodness” of the film?
