I’m sure I’m the only one who’s gonna defend Halle Berry in 🐱 catwoman I knew Halle Berry would be in the video her purrrformance wasn’t bad people just hate on it because the film and that it isnt Selina Kyle but she is still doing movies and getting great roles , the call, kidnapped, grace and Frankie which she got a nomination nod.

Don't know what you thinking but, most of this movies was awesome, so this review it's not that great

OMG this video is seriously annoying, you don't know shit. Many of these actors had lots of roles that were outstanding, after what you are considering roles that "ruined" their career. You might want to take up another hobby, rather than talking what you don't know shit about.

It was The Postman that almost ended Costners career. Not Waterworld.

The narrator for this clip is in error Cuba's movie Boat trip was an outstanding funny comedy how dare she criticize his work in this movie the only reason the narrator or script writer criticized this one is because it has gay content to it which is a homophobic response

Sean Connery? Seriously. Are you insane? And water world was not bad.

Except for a few, I loved most of the movies mentioned and have them in my collection.

Well ... mostly I can get behind this list. But I don't think Sean Connery was awful in "League", nor was the movie all that bad. I was just ... average. And given that he was pretty old already at that time, I wouldn't consider this career ruining. Just the way things go eventually ^^

What idiot put Kevin Costner in here and I got news for you there is a ton of people that loved Waterworld what are you going to say the postman was a horrible movie 2 you could put Kevin Costner in anything and he does great look at the series Yellowstone you want to have your head examined for putting Kevin Costner in here did you ever think maybe he just wanted to take a break and enjoy some of his Mass fortune and his life.... it's lunacy to say his career Tanked what's even crazier is how they take stars out because they have a bad movie or to Cuba Gooding jr. Is still an awesome actor they're probably punishing the poor guy for something that guy will always be a good actor nobody hated him because he thanked a couple movies only a sheep would do something like that judge somebody over a couple bad movies a lot of times these actors don't have control over how they act in a movie they have to go with the punches

thelocustemperor (18 days ago)
League of Ex Gents is a kick ass movie and honestly he's lucky to finally be in a fantasy type action movie as a key role and if he even had a career left when he did the movie what else was he going to do?? Marvel movies...
Mariyah Ali (18 days ago)
A lot of these stars simply got old, that is why they stopped working. No one role ruined them. This only applies to new actors in breakthrough roles like that girl in Showgirls and the shit Venom (before Hardy).

Wild things was not embarrassing it was amazing. I saw it in theaters when I was 15 and it still holds up today. Yeah there was awesome gratuitous nudity oh, but it was also a pretty good story and a pretty good movie. Not sure why people hate on it.

Wild things is awesome. Blaming that film for Neve Campbell’s career decline is hilariously dumb...It didn’t ruin any of the other stars involved careers. It’s literally the best performance and film she was ever involved with...she’s just not a good actress.

Waterworld is a great movie, i had all the toys. I had the ship. Not as cool as the movie but it was one of my favorite toys.
Stephen English (30 days ago)
In fairness to Connery, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was just his last film because he was old and didn't want to be an actor anymore. It was a terrible movie, but not the reason his career ended. And props to Halle Berry for showing up to the Razzies award ceremony to accept her Razzie and to openly and enthusiastically trash "Catwoman" as a garbage film. :)
Stephen English (30 days ago)
And Costner just got old and couldn't pull off the type of roles that made him a big name. It didn't help that he began losing his hair around that time. Also, Waterworld was a decent film (if not a classic), and he's been amazing in "Yellowstone".

Ross Donaghy (1 month ago)
As a 33 year old male, a lot of the movies mentioned here are icons of my youth. I don't believe that these films are solely responsible for the change in carrer path of these actors. As an example: The Post Man came after Waterworld, the choice to star in two back to back post-apocalyptic films seems far more likely to have influenced Costners future casting than simply playing in Waterworld and since Costner co-produced Waterworld there is an indication that his business skills and personality have more to play in future projects than anything else, he would also appear to have a myriad of interests unrelated to filmmaking and even there branches out of the role of actor. This of course would be harder to fit in your bubble-gum narrative that the films themselves put a stigmatism on the actors in question.

Where is Natalie Portman from the prequels?
Szikla Gránit (1 month ago)
Like every video lists it is subjective and some of these movies weren't that bad as described no matter how many critics and movie watcher hate a product there will be peoples whom like it. Waterworld was a failure but entertaining and Kevin was not bad in this role but sadly the film got negative critics despite that. Catwoman so so I liked the catwoman before the own catwoman film but Halle Berry was not bad in the role either despite the silly scenes and bad script. The Extraordinary Gentlemen was a nice film and I liked each characters on it so the problem was not the film but the chemistry between the team. Same can be told for the War on Earth many will say that film was so bad which is not far from the truth but I liked that movie also and Travolta was a cool Psychlo. I like also the troll 2 which is a full disaster film in every way but it created such a good memes and it's quality is one of the worst but still good. So as I started every list is subjective we do like what we like and maybe won't agree with others but these stuffs created for making gap between peoples and just make peoples nervous. Instead we can accept you like some stuff I like also others and it is fine. This is how things should have been worked from the beginning.

Sorry but I loved Showgirls. It may’ve been politically incorrect but it was engaging and entertaining from start to finish. You can always tell when the PTB are trying to deep-six a film or trash someone’s career. Their bought and paid for critics’ published reviews make no sense whatsoever and agendas are fairly obvious.

Waterworld is one of the best movies ever!!! That people didn’t get it is up to them, but that movie Rocked! This movie and Patrick Swayze’s roadhouse will go down in history as bad movies, but in reality they are the best things to come out of Hollywood ever!!!
Gaz B 007 (3 months ago)
So let me get this straight... You can star in amazing movies for years and years (Let's say K.Costner like in this video) and be an acting icon. Then, because of one film u star in later on isn't as good then your careers over? Hollywood... What a joke!

Really ? Grace was really Good as Venom , because this is the real Personafication of Eddie Brock a broken Man that loves too become Venom . Spicy commentary`s and the real backround story from Venom was show`n in Spiderman 3 . Ok i admit i see a lot of Erick Forman in Grace in this Movie but still great Work as a Actor and Comic Lover

It's a myth that "Waterworld" was unsuccessful. Worldwide, it brought in a TON of cash. It was not a blockbuster in America, but did 'ok.' But the media hype that it was a failure is completely inaccurate. It's not my fave film by a damn longshot. But it made boucoup dough.

The city set on Waterworld burned into the water. They lost something like a hundred million in one fire. Then it got panned by critics.
Drayson Roberts (3 months ago)
Men between the ages of 19 and 28 are the public target in Hollywood for making the most money. So when stars reach 30 years of age, they're not hired any longer because actors who aren't young any longer don't appeal to young men. It has nothing to do with the movies they've made and how bad they were.

bheast86 (3 months ago)
In most of these bad roles, the actors were actually pretty good - Berry & Berkeley were obviously a lot too subtle for many critics, including the unreliable Razzies. But what about actors whose careers weren't ruined by roles when they should have been? Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Chris Tucker, Sasha Baron Cohen in quite a lot?

If you want to be a true superhero give your life to Jesus Christ. Soon, the 144 thousand the bible talks about in these last days will be given power they will be the Lords army. I've done had dreams and visions of being given a new body and being able to fly and have many other powers. If your someone who wants to be more then what you are give your life to Jesus Christ, and he will change you and make you a new creation. More importantly he can save you from Hell a place so bad that i would not wish it upon my worse enemy cause i have seen parts of it and its horrible. I also have seen parts of Heaven and spoke to Jesus Christ face to face he's very real and he loves you. Subscribe to my channel for more videos on my experiences. God bless.
