How many times have we said.... "I wish the movie was as good as the poster?"
A View To A Kill (1985). A common complaint was that Roger Moore (57 at the time) was too old to play the character of James Bond. Did his age really make a difference in Octopussy, which came out two years earlier?
Detroit Rock City. I did not have to pay to see this in 1998 because I was an employee at the movie theater. Still wish I did not see it.
Bride of the Monster (1955). I love Ed Wood films. But this poster is way too good for an Ed Wood movie!n.
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989). "What does God need with a space ship?" Probably the best and worse line of scripted dialogue of the 20th century.
The film that laid the groundwork on what NOT to do when re-imaging a film franchise.
