Worst Performances in the History of Cinema

The truth is that Cinema has already a long history. From the Lumiere Brothers, thousands and thousands of great films have been made with thousands and thousands of great actors and actresses.

But what does it happen whit those movies directed by the best and based on a fantastic screenplay that a star has sunk forever. There are films that has survived their bad performances, but we still think: ‘The movie is fantastic, what a shame the protagonist.’

Yareah magazine has elaborated its own list of jinx stars.

1st.- Who can annoys a film by John Huston? He is one of the best (maybe the best one), he worked successfully with Humbery Bogart, Sean Connery, Jack Nicholson, Sterling Hayden… But once, he had to work with Gregory Peck in Moby Dick (1956). Incredible! Who can annoys a film by John Huston based on one of the most interesting novels of the 19th century… Yes, him, Gregory Peck and his inexpressive face.

2nd.- Again the ‘fantastic’ Gregory Peck. Spellbound, a 1945 film by Alfred Hitchcock, costarring by Ingrid Bergman. Too much, the fantastic Ingrid Bergman and her passion cannot hide the coldness of Gregory Peck, so handsome so foreign to the role.

Worst Performances: Monica Bellucci

3rd.- Well, we change (and we could continue speaking about Gregory Peck). Another terrible actor: Keanu Reeves. A wonderful idea to cover his eyes with back glasses in Matrix. A pair of black glasses are much more expressive than him. We can also cite different Reeves’ roles. Maybe the worst was in Dracula. No commentaries.

4th.- This girl, Mia Farrow, impossible to understand how she is so famous. Not even pretty, she has been directed by the best, she is always hysterical and dull. Example: her role in The Great Gatsby.

5 and 6th.- Another terrible actress used to be Doris Day, the cause of all the dumb blonde jokes. Whatever of her performances could be cited here. Today, she is imitated by Katherine Heigl.

7th.- A best but a worst is Daniel Day-Lewis. Best: In the Name of the Father, The Boxer, Gangs of New York, There Will Be Blood… However, we wish he never did The Age of Innocence… Daniel cannot performance a good boy.

8th.- We also dislike Roberto Benigni. What little elegance! How much evidence! He should learn a little about Kubrick (making movies) and about Peter O’toole (when he tries being an actor).

9th.- Madonna. Fantastic singer, horrible actress (see Evita, for example).

10.- Monica Bellucci. Worst impossible. Although we understand this case, she is terrible beautiful (an advantage over Mia Farrow).

Well, what do you think? We can make a poll.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
