The worst movies made by the best directors

In this day and age, we're blessed with a myriad of talented directors who provide us with cinematic treasures on a yearly basis. Each has their own distinct style you can spot in an instant. For example, you'll always know when you're watching Quentin Tarantino or Tim Burton. That being said, they didn't always get the chance to infuse their projects with their personal flare. In some cases, they just got it all wrong. Luckily, we learn from our mistakes, and they all went on to create masterpieces after their failures! In this gallery, let's take a look as some of the worst movies made by the best directors in history.

'Not Hot'! How the 'Sex Lives of College Girls' Cast Feels About Sex Scenes

Getting candid. HBO Max’s Sex Lives of College Girls created a conversation with its depiction of intimacy among young adults. The hit series, which debuted in November 2021, follows four college freshmen as they explore their sexualities while navigating life at the fictional Essex College in Vermont. Sex Lives of College Girls was created by Mindy Kaling and stars Pauline Chalamet, Amrit Kaur, Reneé Rapp and Alyah Chanelle Scott. Chalamet quickly opened up about how her family — including younger brother Timothée Chalamet — reacted to the show’s NSFW content. “My brother loves it,” she told E! News in November 2022. “You’ll have to get the story from him, because I believe he did watch it with one of my parents. So that is that.” The New York native, for her part, opted out of watching the more risqué scenes with her mom and dad, adding, “No, I don’t watch this with my parents. Are you kidding?” Throughout season 1, viewers fell in love with the romance between Kimberly (Pauline) and Nico (Gavin Leatherwood). However, Us Weekly exclusively confirmed in March 2022 that Leatherwood would not be reprising his role. “There is a season 2, but I’m not going to go back,” he exclusively told Us at the time. “It was such an incredible experience. I think Mindy is brilliant and the cast, everyone’s lovely. But with so many amazing opportunities out there, we want to keep spreading our wings and leading ourselves to other projects so that’s the move.” In order to view the video, please allow Manage Cookies The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina alum noted that although he was “happy to do the first season,” he was looking to branch off in “a different direction.” A source close to the streaming platform later confirmed to Us that Leatherwood would not return to Essex. Leatherwood’s onscreen love interest reflected on how the show addressed Nico’s absence before introducing newcomer Jackson (Mitchell Slaggert) in season 2. “I enjoy that it’s two people whose paths would’ve never otherwise crossed. I think it’s important to have those experiences in life, at that age and older, where you get close to people who are different than you and have different beliefs and just see things differently. It helps reinforce your own personhood because you’re forced to ask yourself questions,” Pauline told Collider in December 2022. “With Jackson, it’s a very different relationship than with Nico, so I don’t really think we can compare them. When we meet Jackson, Kimberly’s in such a different place in her life because of needing to come up with money to stay in school that we see it for what it is, which is a story that’s very different than the one with Nico.” Scroll down for the Sex Lives of College Girls cast’s most candid quotes about creating their more provocative moments:

Celebrities who have given up social media

Whether it be for a single day or several years, multiple big-name stars have opted to remove themselves from the world of social media and the social scrutiny that comes along with it. Britney Spears has taken breaks from social media every now and again, a right she has surely earned after gaining freedom from her oppressive conservatorship in 2021. However, when she suddenly deactivated her Instagram account on Jan. 24, certain fans began to worry. Some of them even made phone calls to the police as they feared for Spears' safety. This resulted in members of the Ventura County Sheriff's department showing up at her home later that night to perform a welfare check, and the Princess of Pop was none too pleased. Spears wrote a statement on Twitter on Jan. 26 asking fans not to overreact and to respect her privacy. “I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded," she wrote. She went on to explain that news of the police showing up at her home triggered news headlines which once again portrayed her as unstable, even though the police "quickly realized there was no issue and left immediately.” She finished by asking that "the public and my fans who I care so much about can respect my privacy moving forward."

The Most Anticipated Netflix Original Movies of 2023

With Chris Hemsworth, Pamela Anderson, and Adam Sandler on the docket, buckle up—it’s going to be a big year for you and your couch. Attention movie theater lovers: I hate to say it, but 2023 might be the year of Netflix. The streamer just dropped a trailer for its upcoming releases, and it looks like Netflix has quite a few surprises up its sleeve. As usual, the streaming service will also release loads of new television series too, but Netflix seems hellbent on rounding out their original films. Is the streamer returning to its roots? After all, Netflix was originally a movie-delivery service—and after obliterating Blockbuster, not once, but twice, this is the least it could do. Moving on. This year, Netflix will offer its subscribers a host of new films, hailing from every genre imaginable. The early offerings include the tell-all documentary, Pamela, A Love Story, along with the delightful looking rom-com, Your Place or Mine, and (hopefully!) more time in the bunker with Chris Hemsworth in Extraction 2. So buckle up — it’s going to be a big year for you and your couch. To make the selection process easier, dear reader, Esquire has parsed through the streamers upcoming releases and curated a list of what should be on your watchlist.

Actors using stage names: What's really Brad Pitt or Demi Moore's name?

Many famous actors have preferred to change, completely or partially, their name. This is the case, for example, of Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt or Demi Moore but the actors who have changed their name are really many. Often it is the agents themselves or film production companies who suggest the change. The name, on the other hand, is very important for an actor and for the films in which he acts, it represents an important business card....

'Yellowstone' Fans, We Found Your Next Favorite Shows

We know what we're doing this weekend... Yellowstone was the most-watched show on TV last year, and for good reason. The Dutton family drama truly has it all, from drama to action to romance. And we can't get enough of that gorgeous Montana setting. But if there's one thing the show doesn't have, it's enough episodes to keep us occupied! And even though season 5 came back on November 13 with a whopping 14 episodes, we still are left wanting more. That's where this list comes in! We rounded up 20 shows worth watching if Yellowstone left you yearning for more family drama. Where some of the shows portray the same Wild West ideals (hello, Deadwood and Longmire), others (like The Sopranos and Sons of Anarchy) hone in on the crime and family drama aspects that Yellowstone viewers have come to know, love, and expect with each episode. The good news? All of these shows are available to stream online through apps like HBO Max, Netflix, Paramount+, Prime Video, and Hulu. Now, as we wait for November 13, the only question is which show will fill the void?

Holocaust-themed movies you need to see

The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah, was the mass, industrialized murder of European Jewry during the Second World War. This systematic, state-sponsored persecution and slaughter of six million Jews by the Nazis began in 1933 and ended in 1945 with Germany's defeat. By the early 1960s, cinema was beginning to depict the horrors of this terrible period in history. Today, the Holocaust movie has become a genre in its own right.
