Five Directors That Aren’t Fans Of Their Movies

Published

on

Many directors have a long list of films they’ve done in their professional career. Looking back, they’ll often have small criticisms about their work. However, some directors have downright scathing words about the finished product. These five directors have a strong disdain for some of their most popular films.

Pointing The Finger

Director Josh Trank wasn’t the only one that hated Fantastic Four. The film was unanimously panned by critics and comic book fans. Trank passed the blame on the studio for reportedly changing things up. “A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would’ve received great reviews. You’ll probably never see it. That’s reality though,” he tweeted.

A Billion Dollar Nightmare

Avengers: Age of Ultron made a phenomenal $1.2 billion in the box office. Any director would be proud of that kind of feat. Unfortunately, Joss Whedon had several issues while filming that made celebrating difficult. “The things about it that are wrong frustrate me enormously,” he said at the Tribeca Film Festival.

What A Fool Believes

Released in 1998, American History X made Edward Norton into an overnight star. Surrounding its release, director Tony Kaye publicly shunned the film. “Well, it’s good enough to fool Hollywood. It’s good enough to fool New Line. And it’s certainly fooling Edward Norton. But it doesn’t fool me. My standards are a lot higher,” he said. The film earned Norton his second Oscar nomination.

New Face In Town

1992’s Alien 3 became the lowest profiting film of the original quartet. One of the factors behind it failing is bringing in then new director David Fincher. As expected, Fincher wasn’t proud of the finished product.  “No one hated it more than me; to this day, no one hates it more than me,” he told The Guardian. Following Alien 3, Fincher directed hits such as Fight Club and The Social Network.

Kill The Batman

Following three successful Batman films, Joel Schumacher put a wrench in things with Batman and Robin. The 1997 film was nominated for 11 Razzie Awards. but it only won one. “If there’s anybody watching this that loved Batman Forever and went into Batman and Robin with great anticipation, if I disappointed in any way, then I really want to apologize,” Schumacher said in a video.
