Total Film has taken a poll and assembled a list of the Top 50 most disappointing movies of all time - films for which there was a certain or even considerable amount of expectation and which, frankly, turned out to be fairly terrible.
Practically every household name filmmaker is on this list - Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Stanley Kubrick, Francis Ford Coppola, David Fincher, Oliver Stone, Peter Jackson, Quentin Tarantino, Michael Mann, Steven Soderbergh, Tim Burton, Sam Raimi, the Wachowskis, M. Night Shyamalan, Ridley Scott, Cameron Crowe, Ang Lee, Zack Snyder, Roland Emmerich, Robert Rodriguez, Kevin Smith and many more.
Topping the list was Spielberg's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" with Lucas' "Star Wars: Episode One - The Phantom Menace" not far behind. Both were returns almost twenty years later to franchises that were the gold standard of many who grew up in the late 70's and 80's, »
