Rotten Tomatoes is a great place to look up movies to see what critics and audiences both thought. Today it’s being used to look at current zero percent films that are out there. When we think of classics films like “Gone with the Wind,” “The Godfather,” “The Third Man,” all come to mind. Well this article is looking at some classics that don’t have a perfect score, well no score currently on Rotten Tomatoes. If you like one of these movies on the list, don’t fret! Remember everyone has their opinion, so like anything you may love it, but someone has may hate it. Some may surprise you, while others might not so much!
So let’s look at five classics that are currently holding nothing to critics on Rotten Tomatoes:
1. Manos: The Hands of Fate” (1966)
Speaking of cult classics, “Manos: The Hands of Fate” pretty much sums it up. People call this a ‘so bad it’s good kind of film.’ It does have its own following of faithful cult fans. If you bought any horror film packs that is public domain low-budget films, you might own this film. Tom Neyman, Diane Mahree, and John Reynolds had starred “Manos: The Hands of Fate.”
2. “Staying Alive” (1983)
Everyone loved “Saturday Night Fever,” so wasn’t a huge surprise that there was a sequel made. The sequel of course being “Staying Alive.” John Travolta came back for the sequel, which hat’s always a plus for a sequel when the star comes back. Though not so much for this film. He couldn’t even save it! Sylvester Stallone had directed the 1983 film too!
3. “Alexander the Great” (1956)
“Alexander the Great” had Richard Burton, Claire Bloom, and Fredric March, but doesn’t stop it currently having a zero rating. Though you have to give it some hope since only six critics wrote about it. The critics though being from Variety, The New York Post, and Time Out. From reading the reviews it looks like the reason why this isn’t much loved is because it’s very boring.
4. “The Star” (1952)
Bette Davis is a great actress, there is no doubt about that. Well “The Star” doesn’t cut it on Rotten Tomatoes, according to its current critics score. The film also had Sterling Hayden and Natalie Wood. The film is even about a fading actress too that is looking for a comeback. Other reviewing places gave this film a very high scoring, even Leonard Maltin gives the film a 3 1/2! So maybe some more reviews and the film will get a nicer score.
5. “They Saved Hitler’s Brain” (1963)
“They Saved Hitler’s Brain,” is probably the most deserving film to get a zero! What’s there to say other than that it’s just a very bad idea for a film!
That’s just five films that are currently holding a 0 percent on Rotten Tomatoes with critics, not looking at the audiences score. Of course this is according to their data, that doesn’t mean that the movie should never be seen by those who are interested. You might even like the film! So are you surprised with any of these five films? Are you a fan of any of them? Did you watch them all? Share your thoughts about the films and other films that should be added too in the comments!
