Movies you wish had never been made; that is the topic of this post. As sure as there are a myriad of movies we wish hadn't been made, we have just as many reasons as to why we wish they hadn't seen the light of day.


Street Fighter: The Movie

Besides being a TOTAL piece of crap, it was the last (if memory serves) movie that Raul Julia made before his death from a stroke resultant from cancer complications.

The man died with that hunk of shite as his last movie with no way to redeem himself. A great actor to be forever haunted by the looming shadow, of the steaming pile that is Street Fighter.

That poor man took whatever acting job he could do at the end to leave some wealth for his loved ones. Laurence Olivier did the same I recall... To wish that Street Fighter had never been made would have meant wishing one less paycheck for a worthy man who struggled to do whatever he could. That sounds kinda petty to me...

Let's honor the man for being an artist and a professional, even in something like Street Fighter. Raul Julia deserves no less.

If you need to condemn, there are plenty of craven money-grubbing movies made by people who were perfectly healthy, but too lazy and greedy to come up with something original or interesting. Pointless sequels like Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and Speed 2: Cruise Control come to mind.

Too True. Still, one would hope to go with a bang and not a whimper. But, we all must do what we must.
